PurgedayThursday: The Next Frontier

She’s 21 months and that’s her shoe collection.   And…it’s not my fault.  

She has a thing for shoes and two very doting Grandmas (Or, Memas if you ask Delilah George) and two very doting Aunts, to boot.

But it’s undeniable, DG has a thing for fashion (or at least, clothes) and is ready to dress herself.   So, {after bolting everything in sight to the walls} we are in the process of rearranging her closet to suit her fancy for fancy.

But I’m looking for suggestions on the best route to take.   I’m thinking sheets with go in her top changer drawer, so the four drawers she can reach can have her foldables in them.   We already have the bar in her closet hanging at her level, which I think is how we got ourselves into this mess to begin with “Oooooh…. polkie-dots.   Oooooh, this one… I wear this one.”  I swear, I don’t know where she gets it from.

But now we’re faced with sorting her clothes out to the T.  Can’t have the winter stuff in view in summer, or she’s wearing her rain slicker and ugg boots to the beach.

And also…is this encouraging vanity or something?   Should I not give her a mirror at her level and the opportunity to admire herself?   I just feel like it’s creativity, but then I get worried that it’s all about “being pretty” and then I get all stressed out that I’m sending bad messages and I should be taking lessons from the Tiger Mom.

{I mean, she has a bright red baby grand piano in her room…so I’m halfway there.}

Anyway, here’s her closet:

It was an idea born from necessity – when we decided to put her changing table in the other closet and lost the only closet bar the room had.   But now I want to hang curtains over the crap above, move the humidifier and stuff, add a mirror, and turn it into a tiny fashionistas wonderland.

Like a mini-version of her auntie Maeg’s glamorous office/dressing room.

I dunno, am I crazy?  Creating a monster?
Or do you know where I can find a vintage mini dressing table that I can squeeze in there?

And as always….DID YOU PURGE?
