IT’S HERE, FINALLY I CAN SHARE MY WALK IN WARDROBE WITH YOU ALL.
I know you have already seen my dressing groom video on YouTube, if you haven’t then click here, you will love it 🙂 I have answered all your questions about my wardrobe during the video but I will type the answers here too. If you need to know anything you can do two of the following: type in the search bar the item you want to know about and I am sure I have written about it somewhere before. Other wise leave me a comment and I will get back to you.
I have linked my furniture in the widget above or you can scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the links. I have made a widget of some of my favourite things, but there was too much to link absolutely everything.
I don’t want to write too much in this article because I have already covered most of it in the video. This room took me ages to photograph and film, I am running out of time as I fly to Dallas in two days. As you are reading this I am probably already in Dallas or maybe in LA already. I haven’t packed and still have other blog posts to write to ensure I feed you plenty of content whilst I am traveling. It’s a hard blogging life.
Questions I received from you via social media. Thanks for all your support and questions. I hope I answered everything okay.
TERRIHALL22: What’s your spring shoe/jacket combo purchase? Designer and high street. Preferably flat?
I love to wear Balmain suit jackets with CHANEL sneakers. This is my perfect spring combo. High street I would stick to a leather jacket and some NIKE sneakers or my new star boots.
KELLYSEAG6: What’s the first CHANEL you bought and do you still have it?
My first CHANEL was a large classic flap in black with gold hardware. Yes I still have it and I would never sell it. I was so proud of myself the day I bought it. I bought it around 2008, whilst working at Harrods.
STARRA5: What is the item of clothing or accessory you wear the most?
One of my CHANEL bags, this bag can make any outfit.
@SINEADXCROWE: What is the most expensive thing you own?
My CHANEL collection no doubt adds up to a lot but as a single item it would have to be my Rolex steel Daytona that I got for my 30th.
@NIKIMEL: What’s the inspiration behind the way it’s styled?
Years and years of dreaming. I am not organised at all and didn’t have that much of a plan in my head. I go shopping and just buy what I see. I wanted everything on display so I can get dressed easily and so I can appreciate my clothes and look at them; I want to admire my clothes, not shut them away.
I love grey and white, I love mirrored furniture, I love copper and I love mirrors; I have mirrors in every room in my house. I would go shopping and collect pieces and put them away. The flooring was a last minute idea. This was inspired by Kris Jenners house. She has shiny black and white diamond floor. I didn’t want black and white and I wanted to keep the floor rustic as my house is quite country; country but modern. We created the floor by painting it white then we used a floor tile as a stencil to draw the squares. We then used masking tape to paint every other square grey. I really love how it turned out.
I love Lisa Vanderpump from the House Wives of Beverly Hills. I love her dressing room, however her walking wardrobe is bigger than my entire house therefore I knew I would never be able to have the same as her but it did inspire me to make mine fabulous. I think I achieved that pretty fabulous look?
My absolute favourite thing about this room is the floor and the grey quilted ottoman which you can buy here. This ottoman is THE BEST EVER and such a great price. Click here to shop. I really really love the floor, it gives it that unique personal touch. It was risky to do but it paid off. I also love the huge venetian mirror. My black roses make me so happy, I think these small touches really bring a room together. I love it that they are displayed in a hat box too. Click here to order some.
KATIE160988: How often do you have a wardrobe clear out?
I tidy my wardrobe once a week. I am extremely tidy and organised when it comes to the house and how tidy it looks. It’s the only organised part of my life. I get so much satisfaction out of cleaning and organising my clothes. I have the house looking immaculate at all times other wise I can’t relax. I usually pull all my clothes out on a Friday night and then put it all back. I bag up clothes and either give them to charity, my sister or I sell them on Depop @CHOUQUETTE or at the boot sale. Sometimes I even pass up fashion events because I would prefer to stay in a organise my wardrobe.
@SALLYSPARKEL: If you could only wear one brand of clothing what would it be? Designer and high street?
Designer a CHANEL BAG and Leather Balmain jacket. High street NIKE trainers I Love Mr Mittens knitted jumpers. They are pretty pricey so if I had to choose something cheaper then it wood be a knitted tracksuit, I love my Primark one; I am wearing it now.
@MSHANNAH1_: How many CHANEL bags do you have?
@NATGAGG: What is your favourite CHANEL bag?
My grey large classic flap with silver hardware. It is the best she of grey, my favourite colour, it goes with everything, it suits every season and it is extremely rare to have a dove grey classic flap.
@KISSMEKATE88: Where would you save and splurge when it comes to fashion and interior? Any tips for interior too?
I would save on jeans, no need for expensive jeans. I save on most ready to wear. I splurge on suit jackets, leather jackets and bags. We spent money on our sofas because we stay in a lot; we wanted it huge, comfy and I wanted to design my own. I would save by finding old furniture and re painting/upholstering myself. I buy furniture on eBay or gumtree.
@ZITAATKINSON: What’s you fave designer brand?
CHANEL and Balmain
What is the most sentimental thing you own?
My pink CHANEL bag. Paris proposed to me with this bag at the Beverly Hills hotel. There was a note inside saying “will you marry me?”
My goal heart locket that saids “Love Dad” my dad gave it to me when he was dying, he was told he had two weeks to live. I stayed by his side for two weeks and then a miracle happened, he was blessed with a double lung transplant and now he lives 🙂 This locket could have been a reminder of him but instead it’s a reminder of a twenty year ordeal that we all got through. It reminds me the meaning of life.
I also love my signed Christian Louboutin wedges.
I did have the option to have my office separate in one of the smaller rooms but I chose to have my office in my walk in wardrobe because this is my happy place. I love being surrounded by my bags and shoes and all the hard work means I can buy more. My clothes inspire me to do well and work hard. Plus this room is nice and big. Sometimes I lock myself away for hours and hours so I would prefer to be in my nice wardrobe than a small box room.
I love mirrored furniture and copper, as soon as I found this mirrored set I bought it right away. it was so perfect for this room. The mirrors reflect all my clothes and I love how it reflects the diamond floor.
