I walked into my closet. Yes, I opened the door and didn’t literally walk into it. I mean entered my closet and I had a melt down. You know the kind where you start to shake like a tree int he wind like your blender when you didn’t put enough water in. I had this overwhelming feeling of yikes!
What do you do when your clothes own you?
I suggest taking this class if fashion really overwhelms you the Adore Your Wardrobe class has helped thousands of women gain control. They look better, and they feel better. If you do not want to be a student, then I suggest you do what I did. I took everything out of my closet, and I put it on my bed. Yes, everything. Yes, it was scary I was afraid mountain clothes was going to get me.
Then I did what I read in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I picked up each item to see if they brought me joy. I made three categories:
1) JOY! JOY! JOY! (meaning it looks good, it is in good shape, it is fashionable, it fits me right now, and I feel great in it)
2) This would look better on someone else; it doesn’t bring me joy
3) This needs to be donated what was I thinking.
I gave myself permission to keep 2 things that had sentimental value. That is it! Two! If I could find a picture of myself wearing it before I had kids in the pile it went!
The key to dressing nicely isn’t necessarily having a lot of clothes it is knowing how to mix and match what you have. You can see the key to these clothes are the bottoms are solids. The pieces of interest are the accessories and the tops have patterns. These looks are classic and not overdone. You can get additional looks by using the scarf as a belt. I would also wear the flower button down open with the grey tank underneath or depending on the color of the polk a dot shirt you could put that under the flower shirt. It is perfectly fashionable to mix patterns if they are in the same color story.
There are 5 rules of fashion you should always observe.
1) Get clothes that fit. Do not just go for the number on the tag. I always grab a size up and size down in something to make sure that it fits correctly
2) Know what colors look good on you and wear those colors. I look horrible in what I call the Easter colors (pastels) I tend to buy more jewel colors since they look better on me.
4) Dress up every day you never know who you will meet. I am totally against wearing your Pajamas to the store it is just as easy to throw on one of the looks above.
5) This rule is so important do not be afraid to try new things. Clothes aren’t permanent. If you have a friend that you think is stylish ask for their advice if you do not know what to wear.
Bonus tip: You do not have to spend a lot of money to look great. I challenge myself to buy outfits that are less than $20. I am a huge fan of thrift stores, inexpensive accessories, clothing swaps and stores like Old Navy where you can get great pieces that you can mix and match.
What are your fashion tips?
Ladies, I’m sure you know the struggle is real when it comes to finding the best hair dryer. Our hair is our crowning glory, and it just gives us that extra confidence whenever our hair is thick, bouncy and shiny. If only we could have that salon blow dry daily then, it will be perfect hair day every day, but reality is we can’t, so we continue to search for the best hair tools, and one must have a professional blow-dryer.

Hi, Fellow Fashionista,
Scratch that hi mom who loves fashion. Scratch that! Hi, mom or sister, or woman on a mission that needs a new look or an updated look or a look that isn’t from 1998. How would you feel knowing you look great? How about just having something nice to look good in? I was asked to review JustFab.com because I love clothes, but I hate shopping in the store. I have three reasons, two boys, and a girl. I just can’t seem to find what I like, and I do not have the patience to try on 100 things and try to figure out how they go together. It is a daunting task. I am also at least three months behind on my magazines so my ability to pick a trend is as likely as winning the lottery.
The sun, water and the sand, I’m so ready for summer! And that means it’s time to shop for new Summer accessories. Here’s our picks of Summer Accessories for Women Under $25 from Amazon.Continue reading
I have a secret. I am married to a guy that thinks I look the best in black one piece swimwear. That is why each year I buy myself flattering one piece bathing suits. I figure since he likes them so much. I might as well wear one. I also like that when my kids jump on me and tug on my suit it isn’t going to provide a show. I also love wearing black because it helps hide areas that still require a gym visit or ten. I decided that I would find a bunch of great options for you to select from for under $20.
