my clothes racks and what's on them

clothes racks
A little while ago I had some requests to show what was on my clothes racks, so here it is! These two full racks hold my op shopped things, mostly skirts and blouses. I've now moved them to the other side of the room, and culled a few things too – I was hoping to get it down to just the one rack but I'm not quite there yet! Here are a couple of things from them. If there is anything else you want to know, just ask me!

On the left rack are my summer tops (and I have no where near enough of those! THE hardest things to find, new or otherwise) and all my skirts. The one on the right has my 1970's and 1980's dresses that I don't wear very often anymore but don't want to part with, the four pairs of pants I own, a few cardigans and my blouses. The way our windows and roof are means that no direct sunlight hits these racks, so while keeping things like this is not ideal – yes, they are exposed to dust and, le gasp, potentially moths – it's working out well for me. I love those beautiful old vintage dark wooden wardrobes, but they are too big for this little room and make it too dark. Having two light racks on wheels is so much more convenient.

These two summery skirts have not had enough wear lately. I am going to shorten the floral one a little, and straighten out the hem; it's a circle skirt and doesn't sit quite evenly at the moment. I love the dots and stripes one and will get lots of wear from it this winter as well as next summer!
full skirts black grey wool
Two full skirts for winter. The one on the left is a pure wool 1980's one, in a dark grey and white weave. I bought it from a local op shop and shortened it to a bit below the knee. You can see me wearing it almost two years ago (!) here. On the right is a vintage black skirt with bows at the pockets – I can't wait to wear that one!
full skirts black stripe
Two more full skirts, both from asos. I love the black one on the right, as it reminds me of those old hooped petticoats.
plaid skirts
And two more pure wool skirts, this time from the 1970's. The one on the left is a fairly recent find, and I am looking forward to wearing it now it's cold enough. The blue and orange are the perfect colours for me!
pussy bow mustard peach
As you know, I love pussy bow blouses! I don't wear them quite as often as I used too, but still have a soft spot for them. I love peachy pink and mustard together...

And patterned blouses. The yellow one has tiny birds in blue and white.

Sweet tweets.
blouses rust blue
A deep rust coloured pussy bow blouse, and a bright sky blue 1980's blouse. Fun things to have. I especially love the rust one. I wonder if it will layer under some of my dresses this winter?

Beautiful things!

I would love to see that rust blouse under a dress....I love pussy bow blouses, I just don't have the confidence to wear one. You have such gorgeous clothes. I love the summer skirts, and the wool skirts are gorgeous. I've always loved wool skirts....I think because I had one as a little girl in the 70s. You'll probably get your chance to wear them really soon.....looks like Melbourne is about to get really cold in the next few days ;)

I love the idea of having clothes outside but I have no room to that! Also, our house gets pretty dusty and I'm afraid that I would have to clean clothes all the time. Great post!

I'm in LOVE with that stripey/spotty skirt up the top there!

I wish I could be as organised at this!
My clothes just get completely lost in my wardrobe - feels like Narnia every time I go in.

I love how your room is set up - the furs and corset on the walls. And the colour is amaze!

You should my dressing room - current disgrace: a chair piled with belts, bags and clothes, a dressing table covered in a jumble of hair accessories and two washing baskets full fo clean clothes that need to be put away.

Mentally I am DYING to cull, cull, cull... but the inspiration to actually do it is very low. *groans*

Such a pretty peek into your wardrobe! I have to admit I have a couple of those racks too. They are too handy for moving all my vintage about although one of mine is currently a little too full and has a rather odd lean to it!

That blue and orange skirt will look fabulous on you! :)

Laura said...

What a fun little peek into your wardrobe...thanks for sharing :) I love that yellow blouse!

Nettie said...

Lovely! I think the birdy print top is my fave! Oh! And the bow pocket skirt! I can't wait to see it in an outfit.

There is such a sense of harmony to your wardrobe, by which I mean that the pieces - though certainly a total mixture - all seem to jive together and belong to the same stylish family. Thank you for sharing an inside look at some of your wardrobe with us, it was a thorough treat to see.

Wishing you a serenely wonderful Sunday,
♥ Jessica

You have such an amazing collection! <3 I definitely need to clear up my 'floor-drobe' this weekend - desperately!
