Closet Bling

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization

Ahhhhhh-Tuesday. The perfect day to give you a Tuesday Tip.. If you’re looking to but a little pizzazz into your life or your closet for that matter, might I suggest adding a few hangers with some major bling attached. Blush Bridal is the perfect resource when it comes to the required hanger bling and they are affordable and well made. Sparkle is NEVER a bad thing, especially if you want to showcase a certain item in your closet or items but might I suggest not doing your whole closet in sparkle hangers because let’s face it you’ve got to keep the shine quota down so you can actually see what’s hanging. Te he!

Click on any of the images provided below and go directly to the site to peruse and possibly purchase a little bling for your closet things. Happy Tuesday. .

The Terrific Trench

A stylish trench is a Classic wardrobe staple. It’s the layering piece every woman needs. The trench coat can elevate your look and can be worn…rain or shine.

Style Tips:

First and foremost invest in a trench that fits you to a T. The trench shape should fit your fame and flatter your figure. Pay special attention to the length. Think: not to long,not to short…. Just right!

A trench coat is best when lined. It allows the fabric to drape better over your body.

Details of your trench matter. Check button quality and buttonholes to insure stitching is secure. Also take note of even top stitching and secure belt loops. Lastly, the belt- does it slide through the belt loops with ease and is it long enough?

Buy well…. Buy Once! . The trench is a style staple that can be in your wardrobe rotation for years to come. Purchase the best quality trench that you can afford. If it’s going to hang in your closet for years to come it best be something that you love wearing with confidence and a “bit of happy.”

Enchante…a beautiful French word meaning “Nice to meet you.”

I have no doubt there were a lot of “Nice to meet you’s “at last night’s Met Gala. But then again, if you make a GRAND entrance -introductions are probably unnecessary. If you’re curious how a few of your favorite attendees arrived with no introductions needed-here’s a sneak peak. Enchante!

The Met Gala & Blake Lively

MET GALA * The quick 411…..

The first Monday of May is aka “Met Gala Monday.”The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. The theme for this year’s event is Camp Notes in Fashion.

Actress Blake Lively (yes, the Blake Lively married to Ryan Reynolds and pregnant with their third child-why do I know this?) has always been on of my absolute favorite Style Stars to watch at the Met Gala for two reasons: 1. Blake brings it! (Big time) Blake continues to wear the most beautiful gowns that are tasteful and elegant. 2. Blake styles herself! Yes!!! You heard me she picks her own apparel and styles herself. I’m sure she does have help when it comes to hair and make up but she chooses all her gowns with out some fancy schmancy A- list stylist. How can we not love a girl that has great taste and trusts herself with her style selections! Here’s a brief review of Blake’s Met Gala moments (and gowns) throughout the years. Enjoy!
