Hang ups (& Friday Links)

This look into the apartment—the closets—of Leandra Medine (Man Repeller) was sort of fascinating to me. I wanted to know more: how often does one cycle through it all? Is there more in storage? Any rules? How much space does her partner get? I’m not sure why, but I love reading about people’s particular closet systems. I’ll never forget the first time that Martha Stewart talked about her various hangers and her middle-of-the-night steaming sessions and her dry-cleaner-sized garment press that she loves to use.

Makes me want to go clean out my closet. Do you have any quirky or clever closet tips? My favorite thing we added to ours a while back is a valet rod. I use it all the time—when packing, being lazy about hanging things up, getting purses off the floor…

Instead of attending to the mess, however, I’m going to go pick out a dress to wear to Aron’s office party at the Crocker Art Museum tonight! And then we have soccer games and photos and general house stuff to attend to this weekend—and I’m definitely finishing those Italy posts. Anything fun on the horizon for you?

Some links of note… 

Tracking Hurricane Florence. Hoping for minimal damage and loss of life for our neighbors on the east coast.

And, one day, I’m going to copy this trip to the Outer Banks exactly, which shows the coastline in calmer times.
