My closet is like my very own art gallery. It's filled to the brim with clothes, accessories, and knick-knacks that I've collected over the years, each with a meaningful memory attached to them. Every time I walk into my wardrobe, I feel instantly inspired. There are so many colors, textures, and shapes that give me a boost of creativity.

Today, I'll show you around my closet and share some tips on how to keep your own closet space organized.

A style tip working women: invest in a structured blazer and a crisp white shirt. This one from Balmain (left) and Carolina Herrera (right) are in constant rotation in my wardrobe.

TIP#1: Color coordination is the key to keeping your wardrobe organized. If you have hoarding tendencies like me (a girl can never have too many high heels, right?), arranging your pieces by color will keep your space looking neat.

TIP #2: One of the best investments I’ve made for my home is a dehumidifier for my wardrobe. It does wonders for maintaining the leather quality of bags or shoes.

TIP #3: This goes out to all shoe addicts like me! After organising your shoes by color, organise them by type (open-toe, peep-toe, pumps, and so on). The visual effect of similar shoes lined up together is immaculate!

TIP #4: One of my pet peeves is seeing a beautiful bag start to lose its form! Your bag's structure can be taken cared of easily with just some stuffers - like a small pillow, bubble wrap, or any acid-free paper. It's such a simple step to keep your handbags looking good-as-new.

TIP #5: If you collect jewelry, you’ll understand the struggle of keeping your pieces from tangling with one another. I love having this island with drawer inserts that let me store jewelry on a flat surface, and showcase the pieces beautifully through the clear top.

FINAL TIP: Ultimately, your wardrobe, or any space in your home for that matter, should be a place that inspires you. Decorate it with things that showcase your style, things that bring back to good memories, and things that charge your creative energy.

Can't wait to share more spaces with you!
