My closet clean-out project continues, and I cannot express how happy I am at making everything neat and orderly! I also want to share my opinion on the new Runway Collection hangers from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project. In short: they are totally awesome. They completely exceeded my expectations.
The hangers are sturdy, gorgeously constructed, and shiny! And although I was skeptical of how good the felt ends could be, trust me, they are very grippy. So grippy that it was actually a bit difficult to get all my clothes on to the hangers just so. But once they're on, they're not going anywhere! Absolutely no slipping, and from the few knit pieces I dared to hang, I have to say I'm not seeing any stretching despite the weight of the sleeves/body, which is pretty impressive.
I wear a size 4/40, so all my hangers are 15", and they are perfect. One thing, though... As I do live in a teeny apt with a very cramped closet, I'm starting to realize that all the blouse and jacket hangers with the shoulder flares take up a lot of valuable real estate. If you're in my situation, I recommend skewing your order towards the skinny shirt hangers. (See comparison pictures below-- those are equal 2' widths of hanging space).
As I've been re-hanging and reconsidering my wardrobe, I've pulled out almost 100 items I should donate. It seems quite nuts to me that I could have 100 pieces of clothing (tops, skirts, sweaters, pants) that are just literally just taking up room. 100! So between my little sisters and charity, now I just have to decide who to give what!
