Fashionista Headquarters: DIY Walk In Closet

20140613_175129_resizedThe big reveal of my new headquarters is coming soon, as I  slowly wrap up on all the little jobs that still need to be done. One of the main things I wanted was an open space for a changing room. I always wanted a walk in closet that looked like a small store with all of my clothes, shoes, jewelry and products on display. I wanted to have this space where I can pick out my outfit and put on my makeup with ease. In my previous space I had all this clutter with shoe boxes taking up every little nook and my vanity was used for everything except my makeup brushes and eye shadows. Now as I am unpacking and organizing everything, I am falling in love. This closet space is an add on to the closet space I had and I am taking the closet doors off so that everything flows. Now my actual closet won’t be as organized as the shelving unit I installed but I have curtains for that. This shelving unit is from Walmart, the cost was $90 and it was worth every penny. It was very easy to assemble with just some minor frustration when my dad and I were making sure everything was leveled. (My dad works construction and is a perfectionist with these DIY projects) This shelving unit is great because it can stretch from 4 feet to 8 feet and you can arrange the shelves and rods into numerous combinations. I stretched it to 7 feet and used all three shelves and both rods to maximize storage. You can see from the picture that this unit came in handy. There is more to come before the big reveal, so stay tuned for more updates. Building your dream space all on your dime with Elle Woods.


Semi-Annual Sale Madness

Please tell me I’m not the only one going crazy at Bath and Bodyworks and Victoria’s Secret. It seems like every year they have more and more that I feel I need to try…And I always want everything. So it should be no surprise that this year when the sales rolled around I stocked up on some bras, candles and everything else I could find. If you haven’t already be sure to stop by your local Bath and Bodyworks and Victoria Secrets. This year I found amazing prices on bras and even better prices on candles. These were the highly advertised items and seemed to be the things on my list to buy….it’s like they know me all too well. Check online for offers before you go in the store, I found a ten dollar off coupon online for Bath and Bodyworks, and the more you buy the more coupons they give.

DIY: Fashionista Headquarters

I have moved! I finally have a descent space to spread my over bearing amount of shoes!….Just kidding, there will never be enough room for my shoes. BUT not kidding about the move and the new place, I have been working on getting it together and it is still not done but a room tour will be in the works once I am.  For now I can build up the suspense for what it will look like by slowly adding pictures. Don’t expect much in this slideshow except a photo-bomb from my lovely dog CoCo, but do expect a lot of money-saving finds and cost friendly space savers for a diva on any budget in the big reveal.  This is roughly a 14 x 15 sized room so I have a lot to work with and I plan on using it all without the cluttered feel that I got from my old space which was about half the size of this room.  Be sure to follow my updates as I put things together.  Building your shopaholic paradise all on your dime with Elle Woods.
