Janet just mentioned an accessories armoire in nemosmom’s scarf storage thread. I’m not carrying it off, but I am trying to tuck my tongue back in my mouth.

Whenever we finally move, I really, really want to get a dresser just for my basics, including pjs, swimsuits, maybe workout wear, jewelry, and hair accessories. I will probably shop secondhand for a vintage one, because I think it’s kind of an old-fashioned idea.

Pictures show how I currently store those things.
1 hanging organizer with, top to bottom, bras/camis, underpants (DID YOU SEE THAT, SMITTIE? ), socks, more socks , tights, leggings, swimsuits.
2 shelf with jewelry box (&aromatherapy bag)
3 shelf with workout wear.
4. Inside my pirate trunk o jewelry.
6. pjs & bedsheets
5 more swimsuits, lingerie, & pjs!
7. Beads, etc
8. Make-up (cleaned out my stash 2.5 years ago when we moved, am keeping it small on purpose).
9. Hair accessories, in an Easter basket on the bottom shelf of the bathroom vanity.

Where/how do you store this kind of item?

ETA: I’m thinking of a highboy, so that I can use a mirror standing on top of it for hair & makeup. I want it to have clean lines and nice legs, with 6 or so drawers, so that each contains 2 of the compartments of my hanging organizer, plus whole drawers for workout gear and pretty lingerie, some of it more practical than other pieces. I picture that drawer being a lovely tousle of ribbons, silk, and velvet. Depending on how many drawers there are, jewelry, make-up, and things for my hair can go in the top drawer or on top of the dresser, in attractive containers.
