I’m also unlikely to step foot into an actual brick and mortar FOREVER 21 store anytime soon. It’s generally too loud, too messy and too chaotic for me. Clearly, another sign of being “old-er.” However, when I quietly browse the FOREVER 21 website from the comfort of home, with coffee in hand I can’t help but click “add-to-cart”… probably more times than I should.
If you’re looking to incorporate a few inexpensive new additions into your Fall wardrobe, these are definitely hard to resist!
Sometimes, you just have to step aside and let the Universe do its thing.
Yes, a pretty bold statement, but true nevertheless. It applies to major life moments and surprisingly, fashion too! While in NYC a few weeks ago, I experienced this phenomenon of fate firsthand. I had a meeting cancel last minute and it left me with some free time before my dinner plans. So what’s a girl to do!?
I’ll tell you what: SHOP!
It all started very innocently when I walked into one of my favorite NYC boutiques.
After moving to Cleveland from NYC, I remember completely overhauling my closet.
Not only was my geography changing, but so was my lifestyle — DRASTICALLY. I went from a corporate bank career to one that was not quite defined (at the time), definitely way more casual, and generally involved spit-up and dirty diapers. Clearly, there was no need for my structured suits and office-formal attire.
So out they went.
Over the past few years, my career is definitely way more defined. My general lifestyle is a good balance of casual days and those all gussied up. Fortunately, those days of spit-up and dirty diapers are long behind me. I’m in a really good place and so is my wardrobe — especially when I have brands like TWO FEATHERS in my life.
If you ask any woman, “What’s the most important piece of clothing in your wardrobe?”, there is a a pretty solid chance her answer will be black pants.
This very scientifically gathered survey information is the result of 4 years of deep digging in the trenches of women’s closets across the greater NYC and Cleveland regions.
Aside from a favorite pair of jeans, black pants are a ride-or-die piece of clothing that anchors the rest of our wardrobe. From long days at work, to wild nights out, where would we be without our butt-lifting, thigh slimming, pair of black pants!?
Now, finding the BEST black pants… therein lies the challenge!
Building a functional (and FUN) wardrobe is all about mixing and matching — colors, prints, style and price points.
If your entire wardrobe is designer — what fun is that?
The items that make any wardrobe or outfit most special are those unexpected pieces that bring it all together. These are the pieces that will attract attention and compliments. Fortunately for you, these things don’t have to be expensive. Actually, the most stylish women in the world are the ones who can take a $10 top and make it look like a million bucks.
I hate to break it to you, but these next 4 weeks are going to fly by.
That’s the way the summer cookie crumbles — it takes forever for the summer fun to get started and then it’s over in a blink of an eye (or the honk of the school bus). Before all of the madness of back-to-school shopping and Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes set in, let’s take a moment to address something of great importance: your fall transitional wardrobe.
Can you believe how quickly November has crept up on us?
It was only just yesterday we were mourning the passing of summer and flip-flop season. For better or worse, the holiday season is descending and rather than hang our heads in pumpkin-spiced sadness, let’s embrace all of what November has to offer — cold weather fashion included!
Here’s my November List — a curated style edit of anything and everything that is going to be in high rotation this month.
