The one product that will completely transform your closet

the before

I’m not proud of this. But as I’ve told you guys before, I’m a fashion blogger with no closet. It’s a sad, sad thing. I’ve tried everything to keep this beast organized — except for one. Enter Huggable Hangers, though technically they’re just velvet hangers since I purchased the knock-off brand (I’m so sorry Joyce Mangano) on Amazon, intent to finally organize my closet for good. And let me tell you, they’re called “huggable” for a reason. Now I literally want to squeeze my closet because I love it so much. Here’s another “before” shot so you can get the full enchilada.

All it took was one box of these, which I purchased here on Amazon. It was the best deal I could find so if you’re in the market for an overhaul, I highly recommend them.

I’m in love, I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!

If you do one thing for yourself this weekend, swap out your plastic or wooden or wire for the soft, smooth, velvety goodness that are these hangers. Here’s what my closet looked like after (cue the singing angels).


the after

Now be honest, am I the last one to this closet party? I’m just glad I’ve seen the light. Getting dressed in the morning has never looked this good.
