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?

Fashionable woman using her wallet

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 […]

Work travel: What makeup to pack?

Makeup brushes and palette

Since I tend to lean towards minimalist makeup anyway, I definitely recommend paring down your full face when you travel.  When it is a work trip, however, you will probably need more than tinted sunscreen and tinted lip balm.  By choosing multiple-use items, you can certainly shrink down that makeup bag. Here is a quick […]

Jeans For Every Body Shape

As we have discussed, there are five primary body shapes (pear, column, apple, hourglass, and strawberry).

The most basic list includes: […]

Create Your Own Wedding Emergency Kit

This little handy toolkit can be as big or as small as you need it to be. If you are packing it for yourself, keep in mind that if it can go wrong on the wedding day, plan accordingly. If you are packing it for someone else, think forward about what they would want or […]

Beauty 101: Shaping Your Fingernails

Women with fashionable nails

One of the hardest parts of doing at-home manicures can be deciding on the shape of your nail. Not all shapes flatter every finger and hand, so sometimes it can be difficult if you are inexperienced. It can also affect the durability of the nail itself. It’s the foundation of all manicures, because if you […]

While the cool weather still seems a bit far off, fall weather and fashion are going to be here before we know it. But how do we make the transition easier on our pocketbook? The key to transitioning your wardrobe from summer into fall is layering. With a little planning, you can really maximize the […]

How Many Bags is “Too Many” to Carry?

I work with someone who thinks that more than two is excessive, but I really believe it depends on your needs.  I prefer a large purse with a wristlet inside plus my lunch bag.  But that is what fits my personal preference and needs. Some people like to work out over their lunch break so […]
