The ROUNDUP // 8.20.17

A few of my favorite finds in fashion, art, interiors, and more from around the web.

1  I'm so inspired by Rejina Pyo's Fall 2017 collection. I think it is both incredibly current and also timeless, and that's a hard balance to strike. (Honestly WTF)  |  2  The piercing gazes and layered prints in Kelly Beeman's fashion illustrations are really captivating to me. (Kelly Beeman)

 

3  This home tour of an Austin "Vintage Treasure Hunter" is full of charming finds and clever decor ideas. (Apartment Therapy)  |  4  My current favorite TED Talk: Françoise Mouly, The New Yorker's art director, tells the stories behind the magazine's iconic covers. (TED)

 

5  I loved this studio tour with Heidi Lee, an innovative milliner inspired by surrealism. (Nylon)

Five Minute Friday: Using a Ribbon to Solve Your Wardrobe Woes

 

Do you have a ribbon and a minute to spare? Great, because this simple solution can get your closet whipped into shape with seriously minimal effort!

Five-Minute-Friday-Ribbon-Closet

Have you heard of the ribbon method before? It's a super simple way to get your closet organized- you basically just tie a ribbon at the far end of your closet rod with all of your clothes to one side. Then, after you've worn a piece, hang it back up on the opposite side of the ribbon. After a couple of months of following this system, you'll really be able to see what items you wear and what items might be ready for donation.

 

The ribbon method can help solve a few major organizational problems:

1. You'll lighten the load. If you know you need to purge your wardrobe but can't seem to part with anything, this eliminates the decision process. Simply set a date (like 6 months out, for example) and anything on the unworn side of the ribbon goes.

2. You'll re-purpose old favorites. You know that designer skirt you found on clearance two years ago that still has the tags on it? Or that favorite old jacket that, even though it's not really your style anymore, you're still hanging onto, just in case? Well, there's nothing like a looming donation deadline to get the creative juices flowing. Now is the time to see if you can restyle those pieces in a new way that you'll love or if it's simply time to pass them along.

3. You'll get organized. If it has been a while since you cleaned out your closet, this is the perfect opportunity to get it back in order. As you are hanging the pieces you've worn on the other side of the ribbon, take a second to merchandise it among the others. If you decide on an organizational method in the beginning (tanks with tanks, jackets with jackets, etc.) and then hang your worn items accordingly, by the time your ribbon has moved down the rack, your closet will be an organized masterpiece!

 

What do you think? Would you try the ribbon method?
