Updated Bag & Shoe Closet

Shoe Closet

It’s been a few years since I shared my shoe closet with you guys and wow has it changed (i.e. GROWN)! Chris actually built and installed this for me for my birthday this past April and since today’s his birthday, I thought I should finally get around to sharing it. Well, not that it has anything to do with his birthday but I guess it’s sort of fitting 😉 lol … anyway, obviously we expanded it (or ripped out my old one and put this new one in) but it’s now more than double the size with additional shelves for my bags.

Follow along below for details in the photo captions!

DIY Shoe Closet

After a little debating of whether or not I should coordinate my shoes by styles, brands, trends or heel height, I decided to stick with organizing them by color.

Organizing Black Shoes Shoe Closet

I didn’t want my black shoes to darken the room so I kept them farther to the left near the window. I kept the pairs that I wear most frequently towards the center for easy access and since it’s Summer, those ended up being primarily sandals.

Organizing Rainbow Shoes Shoe Closet

I put all my colorful shoes in the center and organized them in the same color order as the rainbow or as close as possible which looks the most aesthetically pleasing.

Organizing Nude Shoes Shoe Closet

My neutral nudes are on the far right which is the easiest to access and naturally, the colors I wear most!

Going from dark to light really helps open up our bedroom more!

Chanel Camelia Picture Frame

We have a lot of dark/black picture frames so to add some fun to them, I used the camellia flowers that Chanel stores sometimes put on some of their packaging onto the frames for a cute & fancy Chanel feel! *Chanel typically only decorates packaging with these camellias when you purchase a Classic bag but I’ve gotten lucky with some really sweet SAs!

Handbag Display Styling

For my bags… well, let’s be real. This doesn’t normally look this styled! They’re usually just displayed side by side but I couldn’t help but have a little fun styling the shelves for this post! I actually normally have them organized by brands, Chanel on the top left, Gucci and Dior in the middle sections, Louis Vuitton towards the bottom (because they’re bigger) and my only Hermes (so far!) on the top right. These also aren’t all my bags obviously but these were what I had nearby when I was cleaning/organizing this!

Chris and I are both coffee table book hoarders and have our fair share of themed collections so I love using my fashion/designer books to elevate and add more depth and dimension to my shelves.

This silver squirrel cookie jar is one of my favorite finds of all time from HomeGoods – it was a fun adventure I posted on my SnapChat (@HautePinkPretty) a while back.

I love including statement shoes as decor so they get a little more attention and appreciation even if I don’t wear them as often as I’d like!

Obviously my lipstick isn’t usually open 😉 but colorful lip glosses and nail polishes are a great way to add pops of color to your decor, especially when they’re in pretty packaging.
