The Shirt Dress Returns

The shirt dress is back in a BIG way for Spring 2019. My question is-did it ever leave?

The shirt dress was a woman’s everyday uniform back in the 1950’s. Women needed an outfit that was easy to move around in and maintain a sense of style.-The original design was fitted on top with a very full skirt cinched with a belt at the waist. I remember my Mother wearing a shirt dress in a pretty color everyday growing up. It was always crisp,clean and cinched her waist with a thin matching belt and had a slightly gathered full skirt that hit just above her knees. My Mother did all her daily chores wearing a shirt dress and now that I think of it, she never looked anything but perfectly pulled together. How did she do that?!

Today’s shirt dress has so many variations to choose from but the one constant is that no matter what shape, color or print the overall design is flattering and feminine. The shirt dress is back ! ( And most likely..here to stay).

Make’n “Pretty”

I’m all about the PRETTY!

Growing up in a home where everything and I do mean everything was organized, alphabetized and colorized- it really came as no surprise that I have a penchant for order…. and if I can make order look PRETTY than all the better.

It all began a few years ago. A friend asked if I could come over and help her restyle her new closet space. Seriously????I would have done it for free as her closet was filled with enough designer Chanel that she could have opened her own boutique.Bearing in mind that I knew I had to charge something because we all know that at the end of the day a girl has got to make bank so she can pay her bills and buy her very own Chanel..and so it began my closet organizing and styling business. I I LOVE every minute working with a client, bringing order to a space and restyling looks to make them feel better about themselves and increase their confidence in their everyday life.

Lately, I’ve come out of the closet as clients are asking for other parts of their home to be styled and organized. Here’s a small sampling of what I’ve been up to and there is more..much more to come. I’ve been restyling everything from kitchens to bookshelves, bathroom, bedrooms and garages. At the end of the day Organizing is all about THE PRETTY!

In the Trench(s)

Category: Fashion

While many parts of the country are still covered in snow and dealing with freezing temps,here in LA we have been deluged with rain for weeks. Thank goodness I planned ahead (way ahead) and happen to have a bevy of trench coats at the ready. (Translation-I have a major coat addiction and own quite a selection(8 and counting) to choose from hanging in my closet. A girl has got to have options. Right?!

The trench coat is a closet staple. It never goes out of style and if you purchase one in a flattering fit and color you will wear it forever. Promise!

If your looking to add a trench coat to your wardrobe- THINK: Basic… COLOR: tan or black STYLE: single or double breasted and preferably belted. Fit is key. Take your time and search until you find the the perfect style for your shape and lifestyle. The basic trench is an absolute investment piece. Remember the mantra-Buy Well…. Buy Once.

Piped Trench $270 (Anthropologie.com)
Mackage Iva Neotrench Jacket $450.00 (Revolve.com)
Burberry Sisel Trench $790.00 (Bloomingdale’s.com)

If you already own a basic trench why not consider branching out with a different color,fabrication or style….

Leopard Print Mac $130.00 (Topshop.com)
