SPRING CLEANING: Organise your closet in just a few steps

Hello girls, I know we are suppose to have some free time and enjoy ourselves in these sunny days around Easter but I thought that I should do something useful during this holiday- clean my closet. I have a big part of my clothes that I do not use, so it makes sense to get rid of them and free some space for new spring/summer 2014 to come in.

So the first step is to take everything out of your closet: clothes, jewellery and whatever else you might have there. Clean it up with some soap in order to remove all the dust and make it shine and smell nice again.

What I did next was to start sorting out the clothes, I divided them in three groups: things that I regularly wear and love, clothes that I wear not so often but I do not want to get rid of,yet, clothes that I have not worn for the past 1 year that I can give away or sell.



Then what I did was to organise all my 'definitely keep' items and make sure that they are all clean and in good condition. I usually like to sort my clothes by colour and type, of course. I always fold the jeans and most of the skirts and put them on one shelf (unless they are from sensitive material and needs ironing before I wear them). Then I put t-shirts and other tops that i have already ironed on another shelf- I hate when my clothes are not ironed...anyways, then I hang the rest of the clothes on hangers (make sure that you have good quality hangers so you can preserve your clothes). Finally, at the bottom of the closet you can place your shoes or I have my jewellery box. 



I have 3 more groups of clothes to go. There are some items that I love but at the same time I am not ready to get rid of, yet. I actually reviewed them one more time and found out that there are things that I love but at the same time will not wear again any time soon so I better give them away to my sisters or sell them as the condition of the clothing was very good. The last group I just divided into GIVE AWAY and SELL. I gave a huge part to the RED CROSS and the rest I am planning to put on sale online.

You can also refresh your closet by adding some new items like new shoe boxes or hangers etc.

I know that a lot of you will think that this is something that you know, but I think it can give you a kick-ass start to get rid of all those unnecessary items in your closet and refresh it at the same time.

So don't be lazy and get to work!!

Yours,
Fashion Memos.

April cravings from Bianco Shoes

Currently on the top of my list are those super cool and at the same time very comfortable Bianco platform sneakers. I was at the shop the other day looking for something comfy and at the same time on platform since I like that I look a little bit taller than I am (ha-ha-ha) and I found those beauties. 

After trying them on I decided that they should definitely join my collection, the only problem is that I could not really decide on the colour of the platform sneakers, guys, so I thought you might be able to help.

VS.
What do you think, girls?

Are those sneakers something you would have in your closet? ...and most important, please, help me choose the colour!:)

Enjoy your day, ladies!

Gala night at Copenhagen

Hello, Ladies!

Remember my super pretty sequins dress from NELLY.COM that I bought some weeks ago HERE? I was looking forward to wear it at the gala night at the conference in Copenhagen and here I am. It was an amazing night with a lot of fun and great outfits. The topic was 'What you want to be in the future?'. So... here you can see me and my sequin dress, trying to pose as a future fashion designer. 





Enjoy your day and weekend, Ladies!

Easter Deco Inspiration

Easter is one of my favourite celebrations, so I like to decorate the whole house in a little bit festive mood. I have already quite a lot of decorations so I do not need to spend a fortune in order to have this Easter inspired decorations in your house. If you are tight with the time and you do not really have time for being creative and do your own decorations, you can do like me, search for one of those places like TIGER, Søstrene Grene etc. You should be able to find some great products at friendly prices and at the same time get inspiration for the Easter decoration.





On the other side, if you have some more time and the wish to make your own decorations, I definitely encourage you to do that because it can be a lot of fun and very rewarding in the end. I would usually prefer to do that but since this year I am not spending so long time at home during Easter, I decided not to make my DIY Easter decorations.


Design Mom has a great recipe for DIY salty dough for Easter eggs and whatever shapes you wish to have. I have used this recipe previously and it is just great.

I am sure you will do great and I am looking forward to hearing if you did this project!

Yours,
Fashion Memos.

Happy Birthday to me

Happy 25th bday to me!

I had an amazing day together with my boyfriend, got brunch and saw Yves Saint Laurent bio movie which was kind of interesting to see and at the same time very outrageous. The weather was, unfortunately, not so great in Aarhus but since my boyfriend planned the whole day, I did not feel it so much.

Don't forget that in this occasion I have teamed up with Henryka for a Birthday GIVEAWAY where instead of me, it is YOU, my dear readers, that will receive a present. Participate HERE only with 3 clicks.
