SO pretty

SO pretty

Remember when Carrie Bradshaw told Big she’d rather he got her a huge closet rather than an engagement ring? And then surprised her with the most gorgeous, all-white wardrobe? We actually cried, it was so beautiful.

But it turns out, there are even more insanely gorgeous walk-ins out there, trust us, we did the research (who doesn’t love a bit of property porn?).

And the best bit? These babies exist IRL...

1. You’ve got to admire someone who respects shoes so much, they’ve displayed them in a glass case. And that chandelier!

2. This one even has a little reading corner in case sorting through all your fabulous clothes gets too much.


3. We love a good mix of patterns, which is why this closet ticks all the right boxes.


4. We wouldn’t have thought to put leopard-print carpet in our wardrobe, but it really works.

5. Bold and colourful, just like the clothes.

6. Art deco fabulousness. Everyone needs a crushed velvet ottoman in their life.

7. Got a spare room? Just turn it into a closet like this one. Bonus points for storing shoes in the fireplace.

Right, now all we need to do is just save up a load of money to a) afford one of these houses with an insanely huge closet, and b) fill said closet with designer clothes.

Simple, right?

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
