Screw the LBD

Okay, okay… so everyone COULD use a Little Black Dress in their closet from time to time, but wouldn’t it be much more fun to step out in one of these little numbers?! Patterns, geometric shapes, cutouts and fun colors seems to be gracing the pages of magazines like crazy these days, and not just in clothing, jewelry too!  Paying attention to the details can help set your look out from the rest. So next time you’ve got a hot date or a fun night out on the town, step out in something bold and leave your little black dress at home (it could use a break).

This Red Skirt

I’m pretty sure when I bought this skirt it sat quietly in the closet. I loved it, but I wasn’t sure what to pair red with! Now I see that it’s pretty versatile. Browns, blues, sparkle or stripes … Which is your favorite?

A Modern Twist On Nautical

Try mixing and matching patterns in your closet, you might be surprised what you come up with! I love the look of this paisley halter with striped jacket. Paired with an armful of bangles, nautical feels like it’s been turned upside down and given a new fresh look.

It’s All About Hats

Whether you’re wearing them to keep your noggin warm or just for plain old fun, hats can take fashion to another level.

Winter Hat

Baby It’s Cold Outside…
Not only do I LOVE this hat that my aunt Carrie made, but I love my mom in it!
Such a fun design and color!

Sparkly Baret

Berets always have a way of giving off that smart, artsy vibe.
This sparkly one is a fun, new twist on an old classic.

Fedora

Sexy and sophisticated. You can never go wrong with the fedora.
Try one with some detail or add your own touch like your favorite pin or a pretty ribbon!

StitchFix

A friend of mine introduced me to “StitchFix“, an online store that assembles your style preferences and sends clothes and accessories based on your “likes” straight to your door. Perfect for people who hate shopping or (as I see it) love getting a surprise in the mail! They also attach a little tag with additional outfit ideas based on what you bought. What a great idea!

They break it down into 3 steps:

  1. Style Profile: Take our fun style survey to help us understand your size and fashion preferences so we can pick the right things for your body, personal style, and life!
  2. Get your Fix: Trend-forward, beautiful clothes and accessories from the latest and greatest designers and brands arrive at your door as often as once a month.
  3. Fashion Show: Shop everything at home– your mirror, your favorite skinny jeans, and all of the shoes in your closet. Keep what you love, send back what you don’t. Easy
