Closet Envy: Sarah Von of Yes and Yes

Though she lived out of a backpack for the better part of last year, blogger and world traveler Sarah Von can appreciate a well-organized closet. Once she unpacked from nine months of travel, Sarah set to work turning a very mediocre walk in closet into something straight out of Sex And The City.

What’s your favorite item in your closet at the moment?
My stylish grandma recently gave me her vintage, black (real) fur capelet.  I’m trying to find a way to style it that won’t make me look like a snooty so-and-so or a Russian countess.


Do you have any super genius storage/organization tips to share?
I love stacking my bracelets around vintage bottles and those back-of-the-door shoe hangers are worth their weight in gold!


What items would your fantasy closet include?
The perfect pair of riding boots, a great method of scarf storing (I have yet to discover one!) and The World’s Most Flattering Mirror.


Best type of hanger: wooden, plastic, or those puffy satin ones?
I actually love those fancy hangers that are covered in fake suede.  Nothing slides off – ever!


Do you share your closet with anyone?  Any advice for sharing space peacefully?

Currently, my closet is mine-all-mine, but I’ve shared closets in the past.  I’m actually a big fan of quality over quantity so I’m usually pretty good about using only 50% of the closet!

Thanks for the tour, Sarah!  Do you guys have any questions?
