Hanger Snob

Monday, December 21, 2009
A few years ago, my Aunt Kathy game me a box of black velvet hangers. I have to admit, at the time I thought it was kind of an odd gift (sorry Kathy!) - I had already replaced all metal hangers with plastic hangers and wasn't sure why I needed these "fancy" velvet hangers. Well, sometimes it takes a while for things to grow on you, but I LOVE these hangers now. Here are some of my favorite features:
  • They are thin, making more room in your closet - WAY thinner than the plastic hangers... more room for more clothes!
  • The velvet makes them non-slip, so no worry about tanks or other shirts falling off the hanger.
  • I think the clothes just hang nicer on the velvet hangers.
Okay, this might be silly, but I am officially a hanger snob. Last year I bought another box of velvet hangers so I could completely get rid of the plastic hangers in my main closet. The plastic hangers were all moved to my secondary closet where I hang older t-shirts and sweatshirts. The only problem was, when I bought new clothes, I didn't have enough velvet hangers anymore (unless I moved something to my secondary closet or put it in my DI pile)... so a couple weeks ago I went out and bought another box of velvet hangers :-) I now have enough hangers that I can get rid of my plastic hangers all together (except for maybe my front coat closet). Thanks Kathy for introducing me to velvet hangers!
