August 25, 2011

Comments Off on Animal Style – How to Wear Red and Leopard Print Accessories

Once again the fall issues of fashion magazines and all the stores are showing leopard as a key part of any well-shopped fall wardrobe. Leopard can be tricky, but don’t fear it.

Demystifying Men's Clothing: Mixing & Matching Jackets, Shirts and Ties

January 11, 2011



I have a confession to make: I don’t get men’s clothing. I can mix and match and play with women’s clothing and my closet all day long and twice on Sundays, but let my husband ask me what to wear when it involves a shirt, jacket or tie? No idea. I think it’s the prints. […]

Organized Closet

Photo credit: Bob Hiemstra via Real Simple There is a feng shui concept that says clutter of any sort blocks positive energy from swirling about the space.  My father has always said, “As goes your home, so goes your life.”  Our lives and space get away from us from time to time – that’s okay.  […]

Accessory Whore Inspiration Board Fall 2010

One of the things the 15:30 Challenge taught me was to have a clear focus – both on what was currently part of my wardrobe and also what needed to be added. On any given month I have a stack of 6-8 style magazines, 8-10 catalogs and hundreds of shopping site emails waiting for me […]

Pumps Collage

I’m a big believer in investment pieces for a wardrobe. Collections in a closet are not about quantity – because quantity can be a bunch of crappy pieces.
