The biggest overall trend for 2017 seems to be a revival of the 80s fashion trends! Everything does come back around again, and it is time to break out those leg warmers and shoulder pads. • Power suits – One of the biggest features of a power suit from the 80s is the shoulder pads. […]

New Year, New You: Fashion

With the new year comes the desire to refresh and renew everything, including the clothing in the closet.  But how to objectively look at what is already in there and what needs to be added or removed?  Oftentimes, the same outfits are worn over and over again without thought to mixing them up. One popular […]

Holiday Wish List: Fashion

I have been told by multiple people in my life that I am very difficult to shop for when it comes to birthdays and holidays.  And for me, it is a struggle to come up with a list of ‘things’ that I want.  I am not ‘thing-oriented’ so I rarely want more stuff.  So as […]

How to dress for a trip to the Pacific Northwest

While my family usually gathers in Colorado for holidays together, this year we are venturing to Seattle instead.  In my opinion, Colorado is relatively easy to dress for – it is going to be cold so bring lots of warm layers.  But Seattle is a little different.  It will be chillier than Dallas for sure, […]

In the same way we update our wardrobes for the changing of the seasons, our handbag could probably use an update too!  Since I carry the same one day in and day out, it always takes a beating in just a few months. But instead of buying the same black or brown basic, your handbag […]

Whether you’re currently in the market for a new job or a new opportunity at your current company, you should always have a go-to interview outfit cleaned and ready to wear.  If you work as a first grade teacher, that outfit is going to be dramatically different than if you work in a capital management […]

Your wallet – one large one or several divided small ones?

We have seen all kinds of wallets come out of all kinds of purses — giant wallets out of tiny purses and huge purses that are carrying a tiny wallet.  While I do not much care for clothing shopping, I do love a good purse and wallet browsing. I am currently carrying a relatively small […]

Comfortable Shoes that are Still Stylish

I’ve recently been diagnosed with chronic inflammation of both my lower back and some of the tendons in my feet.  This does not bode well for any stilettos in my closet.  While the high heels actually make my feet feel better, they do no favors for my lower back. I’ve been on the hunt for […]

What To Do With Hand-Me-Down Clothes? And What Is Clothing Swap?

I recently received a very generous ‘donation’ of business suits from a colleague who was downsizing before moving.  I was ecstatic!  I knew that the clothing she was passing to me would be of considerably nicer quality than I normally buy for myself.  Now if they will only fit… But it got me to thinking […]
