The number on key to looking your best in anything is Fit! It’s all about how well your clothing enhances your shape and nobody but nobody is a perfect size..so when in doubt source a respectable, affordable, skilled tailor and whah lah-your style solution is solved pronto.
Today’s Style Tip: For major impact when mixing checks of different sizes keep it cohesive and blend different size patterns in the same color palette. Not only will you have a major style statement but since you are working in a monochromatic manner you will appear taller and thinner. Basically a win-win. To look extra svelte: keep in mind that large scale checks make that area appear the same-larger and small check prints make area appear smaller. Note the small check at the wait in a lighter color drawing attention to a widdled middle.

Hello Monday. Just a little something to kick start your day.
What ever happened to the good old clothes pin? I remember as a young girl the smell of clothes hanging outdoors in the Summer air being held onto the clothes line by clothes pins. I KNOW this makes me sound like I’m a 100- but stay with me for a moment to think about air drying your garments outdoors (which P.S. in the day was not only environmentally savvy but when you brought your clothes indoors they had the most lovely scent of summer-a wisp of floral and fresh air-it was heavenly). When I came across this perfect way to display your scarves I went nostalgic for a simpler time when clothes pins were a laundry room staple and life was a tad simpler. Maybe it’s time to bring back the clothes pin and hanging our garments out to dry when the weather gets warm. Just a thought-but a nice one at that.
