How to: Turn a Bookself into a Glam Display Case


One of my favorite fashion searches is to see how people keep their closets organized while displaying their designer wares. Maybe it’s for inspiration or maybe it’s the same thrill that keeps my mom and I peeking into open windows while we drive by houses at night. Either way, I never ceased to be amazed by the numberways creative fashionistias store their good.

Once my collection started to really take off I couldn’t keep it all on my dresser any longer, and I didn’t have the amazing walk-in closet I do now, so I went to Target (the answer to all life’s problems) and bought two folding bookshelves to stack on top of each other. 

I loved this solution because it kept everything in one place, the shelves were large enough to store my bigger bags (note the Louis Keepall 55 on the bottom) and I could easily see what I had when I was deciding what to wear. Since it was actually two bookshelves stacked, I used some black electrians tape to hold them together and make the unit a little more sturdy, but I’m pretty sure it would have been fine on its own.
