What to Wear to Go Back to Work

June 29th, 2016 by

(Disclaimer: Don’t hate me for saying “work.” I know that we all work. Wherever you are and whatever you do for work, it is still work. But “work” is easier to say than “working outside the home at a paying job that requires you to dress up a bit.”) If you’ve spent the last few […]

How to Dress Cute While Pregnant (on a Budget!)

June 26th, 2016 by

If you’re reading this, I’m a little jealous of you right now. I hope you know how truly blessed you are… I loved every single second of being pregnant. Every. Single. Second. I was deliriously happy. I never got nauseous.  think it was God’s way of giving me a break after 6 stressful years of fertility […]

How to Rock a Transitional Wardrobe

June 23rd, 2016 by

Okay, I’ll admit it. Transitional Wardrobes, and, frankly, capsule wardrobes of any kind can be a little, yawn…. especially for creative, spontaneous, former-impulse-shoppers like myself. If, like me, you’ve never met a frill or a bauble you didn’t adore, then the idea of the same 28 outfit combinations on repeat for 6 months can sound like […]

What to Wear During a Weight Gain (or Loss!)

June 22nd, 2016 by

I hear you. Transitions are tough. Tricky. Traumatic even. (Sorry—I never miss a chance to alliterate!). They are confidence killers. And that’s what stinks. During a time when you could use a boost of confidence the most, a wardrobe that no longer fits or suits your lifestyle has the exact opposite effect. It is deflating. […]

5 Easy Tools for Closet Organization

September 18th, 2015 by

I am organizationally challenged. And yet, I organize other people’s closets on a very regular basis, and have been doing so for years. I have organized every single type of closet, from shoebox-size apartment closets to master closets the size of my first apartment. And no matter how little, or how much, space a woman […]

What to Wear if You’re Short

August 31st, 2015 by

Let’s talk about me for a second, shall we? 😉 Back in the day, when I was in college, I bought a pair of GAP pants with an “L” after the size. That “L” meant Long, and for years, I would announce it to pretty much everyone I met. “I wear Long jeans from The […]

4 Fall Outfits Under $100

August 26th, 2015 by

I’m so ready for fall, y’all. So ready. I even got boots. Don’t laugh, because I got them at Justice, a store that is pretty much against my religion. Yes, Justice. Let me explain. Lola and I were having a special day out at our tiny local mall, getting her nails painted and hair trimmed. I […]

Okay, I get it. Online shopping is so hard and so tricky and it’s impossible to find the right size and you can’t feel the fabric and… I lied. I don’t get it. Online shopping is awesome. I first really discovered the power of online shopping 14 years ago, when I was planning my destination wedding. […]

I know what you did last weekend, and I have to say that I’m a little disappointed. You spent the day at the beach, didn’t you? I saw the pictures on Facebook, toes in the sand, holding a fruity drink, and I’m here to tell you that it’s not okay. You could have spent the day […]

  I’m not going to lie. I didn’t get into fashion so I could wear the same 10 pieces all the time. As much as I need mom-iforms and capsule wardrobes and everyday go-to looks, they do not thrill me the way that fantasy fashion does… Frankly, I got into fashion for the drama. I wanted […]
