Wear Now, Wear Later….

Getting the most wear out of your clothes is something that everyone can appreciate. Whether you have a favorite top that you wear all year round, or a dress that easily takes you from work to drinks, we tend to gravitate toward clothes that we can wear in a myriad of ways. Continue Reading

Camp, Bells, and a Rainbow….

August 6, 2019

Are you petite? Tall? Curvy? Thin? No matter your body shape (which is perfect just the way it is,) it can be difficult for any woman to find correctly-fitting pieces off the rack at your favorite stores. One of the easiest ways to combat the shopping struggle is to be friends with your body and know what she needs to feel great. Do you love your long legs? Maybe you have great shoulders! Choose the parts of your body that you want to highlight, and understand what kinds of garments compliment your frame. If you’re petite like me, shopping for proportional pieces can be a struggle. Over time I’ve come to love my favorite stores that cater to body types like mine, and I’ve also accumulated some tricks of the trade to make me look as long and lean as possible (despite needing help to reach the top shelf.)

Even though diamonds are nice, I could make a case for the blazer being a girl’s best friend.

Western Glamour…

October 23, 2018

With animal prints and tartan checks infiltrating the streets of Manhattan, a fresh break from fall’s hottest trends is always a welcome breath of fresh air every now and then. Like many women, you probably keep your newest garments right at the front of your closet. While this maximizes the wear that you get out of those items for the current season, your fresh finds from last year sit idle in the back of the dresser. Time and time again, I reinforce the importance of getting the most out of your purchases. And just because something is a year or two (or five) old, doesn’t mean that it suddenly loses value. Create your own value by mixing old and new, or simply putting a fresh twist on old favorites.
