Need To Edit Your Closet?

Hello Beautiful Ladies!! There is something you may not know about your closet…but your clothes need BREATHING room!!! They told me ūüôā

No matter the size of your closet, you should be able to see every item without rummaging! Really…you should! A good rule of thumb that I use is: Consider donating or consigning anything you haven’t¬†worn in the past year.

But sometimes, we can be at a loss for what we should keep and what we should toss.¬† So, I’m going to share the very same tips that I will be using tonight on my closet…Let’s get to work girls!

What to Keep:

  1. ¬†Wardrobe Basics: These include your best winter jacket, favorite blazer and “still in high-quality” staples.
  2. Event Dressing: You should always have a stunning LBD (little black dress) or pantsuit that fits you like a glove.

3.  On-trend Items: These are the fun pieces that give your wardrobe personality and help bring your basics back to life.

4. Investment Splurges:¬† We all have at least one piece we’ve splurged on.¬† Whether it was an impulse shoe, or the leather jacket that was a must-have,¬† we all need confidence-boosters in our closet! (See our blog¬†on Why¬†Confidence is always in)

5.¬† And lastly, we have the “Sentimentals”:¬† This might be your first Designer handbag or your grandma’s ring, they’ll always be in style and have a great story to boot.

Now, we have come to the harder part… what to say goodbye to…

  1. ¬†Get rid of anything that has tags and you haven’t¬†worn it in the last 6 months, odds are you won’t.
  2. You really don’t¬†need multiples of specific items. Unless you regularly use a uniform, you don’t need 5 of the same things in your closet.
  3. Why keep items that just don’t¬†fit right. You will feel better knowing that all the things in your closet are comfortable¬†and actually allow you to breathe. Send the rest to consignment or donation, depending on the condition.
  4. Well loved items can be let go, really! If your favorite tee has seen better days and it makes you look like 90’s grunge, let it go and gain some needed space in your closet. No one needs that style coming back again ūüôā

Okay, these are the tips I will be using, hope they help you gain control of your space again and feel like the empowered woman you are!

Enjoy your closet cleanse!

Party Rocking at Your Best

Women%20S%20Party%20Dresses

It’s happened to us all before.¬†You have an important party or event to attend and you simply don’t feel like going because you don’t feel you look your best. This usually is an issue when you’re meeting with people that haven’t seen you in some time or meeting someone where landing a good first impression is crucial. The experience itself can make any one selfconcious but add a bad haircut,¬†an extra five pounds, or¬†a lack of a stylish ensemble,¬†and you have a recipe for a party pooper.

But there’s no need to avoid the party all together. We’ve¬†come up with some great tips to turn¬†around any¬†to-be¬†sour party moments.

1. Draw attention to your best features.

While you may be completely focused on¬†your¬†“bad” haircut, make others notice your beautiful statement earrings or smoky eye make up. Pin up shorter layers to help those features steal the show.

2. Wear comfortable clothes that fit your shape.

Yes,¬†ideally we would¬†¬†have lost those extra five pounds by the party date, but unfortunately it’s not always possible. Instead of squeezing into a tight dress that might make others realize you’ve put on a little weight and make you feel self conscious all night, wear something that fits to the point where you feel comfortable and able to breathe. Usually comfort can turn in to confidence and confidence translates to beauty in others’ eyes.

3. Accesorize, accesorize, accesorize!

Didn’t have time to run to the store for this season’s latest trend? Don’t stress. Run to your closet and find a classic look for the event your attending (something that you can’t pinpoint to a certain year). Now think of accesories that will help make the ensemble look more modern. If you don’t currently own any, run to favorite jewelry store already dressed and ask for a store associate to help you find something that will “pop”. As we all know, it’s much easier and quicker to shop for accesories than it is for a new outfit and being already dressed will help you see the “whole” picture.

We hope this blog has you soon feeling like a million bucks. Put these suggestions in to play and you’ll be ready to party in no time!
