Oh, the places and spaces this incredible job takes me. Not a day passes by without blessings counted for the freedom to do what I absolutely love for a living.
You may recall last summer when I spent a few days in the home of Dry Bar founder, Alli Webb. I’ve been back once to do some tweaking while on a different LA project, but I headed back last month just for her. This time I did a little maintenance and updating for this absolutely precious, and equally busy, business owner. I’m excited to share a peek inside her newly updated and super organized closet!
Simply Done: A Peek Inside Alli Webb’s Closet
Alli, not kidding you, she is a style icon for all to follow. Personally, I march to my own beat with fashion and style and she does the same, so I have a lot of respect for her. She’s fashionable in a trendy, yet classic and authentic way. I touched virtually everything in her closet and she truly is a unique soul.
Not to mention, she’s incredibly kind, down to earth and a complete doll. Total package!
Anyway, for this busy mother and business owner, her closet required updating. She’s been opening new Dry Bar’s around the country for what appears to be monthly. Buy the way, there are many more to come, including a location just a few minutes from my house and I can’t wait! Additionally, she’s been traveling around the country on a tour for her new book (A must read, by the way, I read it while I was there!). It’s safe to say, she has been in and out of suitcases and carry-ons for months…and months. I seriously don’t know how she does it!
Down In the Trenches
Honestly, her closet wasn’t really that bad. She did a little purging on her own one evening while I was in town, but otherwise her well-rounded, all-weather (for traveling the country in various climates) wardrobe was pretty much in check.
Do I even need to tell you that I had the best time throwing in my ear buds and organizing her spaces for 2 full days? Probably not.
Quick Tip: If you’re tight on space for shoes, get creative and stagger them!
Last time you may recall I did a file fold on her shirts, but this time she requested a standard fold…
You can see she has minimal drawers, yet a lot of hanging and shelving. When I work in a closet, I fold or place items in a way that makes sense for the space available. In this case, with all of her open shelving it made sense to keep pants together on a bank of open shelves.
In her other closet, where we keep her seasonal clothing for trips back east, there was minimal tweaking and updates.
Her jewelry was previously overloaded in 2 drawers, so I removed her collection of sunglasses to a nearby shelf to give us another open drawer for necklaces…
Extra Pieces I Used
I had been coveting these glass shadow boxes for months and months, so I was thrilled to have a reason to suggest them to someone. They are amazing and these boxes look stunning her in space.
I also did some updates to her bathroom drawers and shelving.
These drawer dividers literally fit like a glove. These babies appear as if they were meant to be here the entire time!

I mean, your own branded Dry Bar products need a place to shine and be organized, right??
Could you blame me for not wanting to head back home? This was such an amazing project to work on for an exceptionally beautiful woman, inside and out. There was minimal product used in her spaces, but if you’d like to shop some the items in this post, they are conveniently linked here:
Happy first week of April! Anyone spring cleaning yet? Stay tuned this week for a great deal I’m collaborating on with Grove! We’re talking bathrooms. Have a great day, guys!
