I probably have dozens and always wished to have a dream closet of my own, but I never actually put the pins to use. I wanted to organize my closet, but do it on a budget! Closet organizers from IKEA, California Closets and other furniture stores are amazing, but too expensive, so I took matters into my own hands (with some help from my hubby, of course!).
Tights and stockings are a must-have accessory for the impending autumn weather. They will aid in turning the wrap dresses, sheath dresses, and skirts you have been flaunting all summer into ensembles that will continue to work for you as the temperatures start to drop. Scarves are going to be another go-to accessory for this season given that they’re stylish, available in a multitude of colors and patterns, and warm enough to offset the slightly cooler weather of the season…Read More
away!1. Formal wear that won’t be reused. I’m talking about prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and theme party events that called for a specific dress or look. Let’s face it, you aren’t Katherine Heigl in 27 Dresses, who will “tailor it and wear it again!” Cut down on the clutter in your closet by getting rid of these. You can even donate your old prom or formal dresses to an amazing charity.
What to Buy Instead: Invest in a high-quality, staple formal piece! For most of you, this is going to be something like an LBD.

Turn to a favorite bottom like a great skirt and tuck in the chambray shirt for a polished look. Adding some great accessories is what brings a great finish to your work look…Read More
First impressions are everything, especially when it comes to interviewing for a new job. Years ago, planning your outfit for an interview was pretty standard and simple. Women opted for a suit, whether it was a skirt or a pant suit. It most likely was in the color black, gray or navy, and there was definitely nothing fun or fashionable going on when planning this look. To accessorize your suit, women would throw on ordinary black pumps and call it a day. Interviewing attire was simply mundane and boring; until now.
Patterns and Prints
If you are going to wear prints, make sure you balance that statement piece with something quieter. For instance, wear a printed blouse tucked into a black pencil skirt with nude pumps. If you are going to wear a printed or patterned skirt, wear a neutral colored blouse to top off the look. You can add a pop of interest to your outfit and still be interview-appropriate…Read More
Then, if your work allows it or has regular casual Fridays, wear your favorite Chambray under your dress and pair it with some really cute Loafers. Roll the sleeves up and slip on a simple bracelet and you have a complete work and weather appropriate outfit.
If your work is more formal, you can go for the obvious option and pair it with a Blazer. I adore the Boy Blazers from J.Crew. To make it a little less obvious, throw on some leather Chelsea Boots and you are ready. Finish the outfit with some dainty stud earrings…Read More
1. Buy a deep red pencil skirt or wide-leg pair of pants. This is an amazing way to incorporate the deep rich colors of fall into our work wardrobe. You can never go wrong with a pencil skirt in the office and by wearing a deep red pair of wide-leg pants, you get to show off two Fall trends in one! Pair either of these with a white button up or silk blouse and you will be one of the most stylish employees in your office!
2. Leather is going to be a big trend this Fall and Winter. A great way to incorporate this into your work wardrobe in a less obvious manner than a leather jacket is to wear a leather skirt! Pair this with a fabulous blouse and you will be Fall trend perfection!

Jumpsuits are back and they are a key item this summer and for the upcoming Fall. Jumpsuits are great when you don’t know what to wear (especially when you’re in a rush) since you can just slip them on and voila!
When buying a jumpsuit or a romper, consider one in black that’s structured and dressy, something that is versatile and you can wear to work or on a night out.
2. Shift Dress
Shift dresses are another great easy piece that can be worn to the office or out on the town. The fact that they are a boxier/looser fit, makes them very easy to just throw on and go. This type of cut draws attention away from the tummy and it’s flattering on most body types.
3. Make your own one piece
Use all the solid plain shirts and you don’t wear very often to create your own one-piece look! Pair these basics with a matching solid color or patterned trouser and tuck in your shirt. Add a belt and it will give the illusion that it’s a one-piece jumpsuit. For example, If you have a black top and black trousers you rarely wear, pair them together and make it appear as if you are wearing a jumpsuit. Black on black always looks super chic…Read More
A Black Blazer. A blazer should fit you like a glove. The right one will go with everything from pants, skirts, dresses, to jeans. It’s eternally feminine, flattering, and it instantly polishes up any look.
Black or Nude Pumps. A neutral pump is an obvious choice, but choosing one that is stylish and functional is the key here. I usually opt for a pointy toe pump because they are perpetually chic.
I styled two different outfits that show how this bag can be work friendly and a fashionable accessory… Read More
