Clothes Hanger Art

In perusing my Pinterest, a daily routine, I have noticed a trend.  I ‘pin’ every image of delicate clothes on hangers.  Apparently, I like clothes hangers.  Am I the only weirdo with this obsession?  You know you like clothes just a little too much, when you would rather have framed pictures of Oscar de la Renta gowns, than a collector’s Monet.

A big goal of mine is to update my hanger stock-pile. I have used plastic hangers since my Freshman year of college and I’m thinking its time for grown-up hangers. If i truly had my druthers (and ample free time), I would bedazzle every single hanger (a la Free People’s past campaign) like a true hanger aficionado.

By the way, Free People has a great tutorial on how to create your own sequin-dipped hangers.

The hanger pictures are absolutely beautiful and inspirational. Personally, I only use white plastic hangers…. for everything. I love the sequin hanger idea though, that is Fabulous!!

I’ve been meaning to do a complete overhaul of my closet and investing in some fancy hangers, although I’m leaning towards those felt ones that keep your clothes from sliding.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love browsing Pintrest too. I always enjoy photos of beautiful clothes on hangers or any other fashion that is beautifully displayed. Love that ruffled dress. =)

Right?! Why do hangars have to be so boring. Glitter it up to add life to that closest. I love the innovation! =)
