We live in a world where storage space is constantly shrinking. The Little Black Dress jewelry organizer from Umbra is a playful take on a functional jewelry organizer - a super-thin, double-sided storage solution for jewelry, cosmetics, hair and fashion accessories, and all of life's curiosities. 33 clear pockets on one side hold earrings, rings, watches, pins, make-up and other small items. On the reverse, 17 tabs with hook-and-loop closures accommodate long necklaces, chunky bracelets, and other bulky items like headbands, belts, and scarves that most pocket organizers don't fit. The metal hanger can hang on a closet pole, wall or back of a door and the swiveling head provides easy access to both sides. With a simple flip, contents are visible at a glance. The playful shape of a “little black dress” will add personality to any space. Measures 36 1/2-inch long by 16 1/2-inch wide. Patented design by Matt Carr for Umbra - original, modern, casual, functional, and affordable design for the home.
Top Customer Reviews
are several things that would make it a better design and more functional:
1. The pockets do not seal. I have a lot of silver jewelry and even if I spend
the $ to get silver strips or cloth, the silver will still be exposed to the
air. If the pockets zipped across the top of each row like other organizers, it
would enable the sealing to prevent tarnish.
2. One of the claims is the swivel top hanger that supposedly enables you to
turn the item completely Around to access both sides. However, based on the
fact that the top of the "dress" is wide at the top, it actually prevents you
from swiveling the item to turn from front to back and vice versa (see video).
If the item was narrow at the top it would work.
3. The straps for necklaces and bracelets are not adjustable, meaning that if
you don't want an item to hang down into another item you have no way to adjust
the length of the strap attached to the Velcro, so that items don't clang
4. If hung in a closet next to clothes, it needs a protective layer so that
sweaters etc do not get caught in items hanging, which happened the first time I
hung it up. Hanging on a door prevents you from getting to both sides. See the video.
First of all, just to be clear, you will have to supply your own hanger. This was not a problem for me as I have many extras. I used a standard-sized plastic clothes hanger and it was fine. It's in there pretty well and should support the weight of my jewelry, even when I fill this organizer up. (It's really not very heavy, even partially filled.) I hang mine on a bar in the closet so both sides are easily accessible.
Another thing to note: the pockets do not seal, so if you were planning to store silver in here, there is a chance it will tarnish. (I don't have much fine jewelry; most of mine is the "fashion" kind, so I don't have any tarnish problems.) Because the pockets are open at the top, this would also not be a suitable jewelry carrier for travel.
Finally, the loops on the back are sewn such that your necklace must have a clasp in order to use them (i.e., there's no Velcro closure, they're just loops of fabric); the loops are hung in straight vertical rows, so some longer necklaces will be on top of others.
None of the things I have mentioned are a big deal for me, so I won't subtract from my rating because of those features. But if those things are important to you, now you know!
Two criticisms that do impact my rating: the color of mine is absolutely not the red color in the photo. It's a dark (almost hot) pink. I believe insufficient dye was used and this was the result.
Second, and more importantly, the very first pocket I tried to use was not properly sealed/sewn at the bottom and could not actually hold any jewelry. All of the other ones I've tested since then have been fine.
The pockets are big enough for single strand bracelets and sets of five or fewer bangles. Larger sets of bangle bracelets will need to go into the bottom row of pockets as these are a little larger. Large earrings would also work in most of the pockets although using this for stud earrings would probably be overkill.
Anyway, the one defective pocket is not a big enough problem for me to send this back. (I can probably mend it with some tape if I'm so inclined.) This works well enough for my purposes and with the amount of jewelry I have at this time. However, I probably wouldn't buy the same item again.
