survey time





Well, I did not mean to take a blogging hiatus this week but when it snows more than two feet, your Civic won't start because of a dead battery and temperatures average a good 2 degrees every morning, you wouldn't want to look cute either.

Today though the sun decided to grace us and I actually mustered enough strength to don tights, my new polka dot ones.

Except that's not really my main focus for this post. I really want to know if any of you guys have good sturdy, rolling racks? I'm not talking part plastic and part chrome (ahem, Walmart brand that broke the other night, thanks a lot!). I need entirely metal or chrome. I've been told to start scouring businesses that are going out of, well business but was wondering if there's any brand at say, Target or Staples that might work as well?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I'm currently living in a pile of clothes and hate the fact that I can't easily see everything hanging in a pretty row.

Ah, who am I kidding, I usually have a pile of clothes on the floor. I think I figured out my New Year's Resolution.

Shirt: Denim men's shirt, Gap
Skirt: Leather pencil skirt, vintage
Tights: Black sheer polka dot tights, American Eagle
Shoes: Black wedges, Aldo

  16. Krystal! By now, I feel like a garment rack expert. I, too, have had breakages / repeated clothing avalanches thanks to faulty plastic racks. I do have one that has served me very well with no problems whatsoever, though! I got it at Target for $50. I don't remember the brand, but it's an "industrial" garment rack that's all metal / no plastic. I think last time I looked, they had raised the price to $60, but it's worth it!

  17. I've been wanting a denim shirt forever and I keep waiting to find one at Goodwill.
    You should check ebay for industrial rolling racks!

  18. i have two from ikea.

    i have the cheapest one and the most expensive one. The cheap one doesn't roll, the expensive one does and i've had them both for about three years and they're doing just fine.

    Hope you find something that works!
