About Me


Hi, I’m Melyssa. I created 5footcloset as my own little space to share tips and tricks about some of the things I love the most – fashion, hair and make-up.


Being only 5 feet tall, I have my own style of putting clothes together – not relying on the latest trends or what celebrities are wearing. I like to experiment with different styles, mix and match pieces to bring out my personality, which is what I want to show on my blog. When it comes to hair and make-up, I’m not a morning person, so I’m always sussing out ways to save time when getting ready. I’ve got a tonne of hair tutorials and make-up tips all up on my YouTube channel and more to come… so watch this space!


Professionally, I work as a Digital Designer for a luxury fashion company. And as I’m a sucker for design and spent more time rebuilding my blog than blogging, but this will change, I promise.


I live in London with my lovely husband, who has gladly taken on the job as my personal photographer. You can check out his amazing work (and the website I designed ;) at www.homanli.uk


And apart from doing the all the usual girly stuff – I’m a keen photographer and a petrolhead who enjoys street dance, seafood, badminton, music and reading a good book.


Please join me on my journey of experiments and share in my successes and maybe also my failures.
