Stuck in NOT always a bad thing. Case in point the outfits below  are these lovely outfits perfect for fall and all in neutral tones.

Neutral tones  when paired together in an outfit allow a blank slate  for you to add a POP of color or texture for interest. At the same time when  neutral tones are worn from head to toe -can be verrrrry slimming. Sooooo it’s your basic win win combo.

Here are just a few  examples to get you inspired . Pair your neutrals together and add that extra special accessory to amp your style up just a tad. Happy Monday and have a beautiful week ahead.

WRAP it UP! -Loving the Camel Wrap Coat

File under: Wardrobe staples every woman should own.

Wrap Coat from I.Magnum (A wardrobe staple that’s been in my closet FOREVER)

As I was flipping my closet this morning from Summer to Winter(because I’m an eternal optimist and even though the fires are  ongoing and the temps outside in LA are reading in the 90’s-I am forever hopeful for cooler days ahead)but I digress… I came upon one of my favorite items and might I note one that has been in my closet for like a thousand years. My trusty camel coat in Cashmere that I bought  over 20 years ago at I.Magnum. Back in the day, I longed for a cashmere camel wrap coat that I felt would stand the test of time. So I spent a small fortune and bought this one pictured above. Somehow I just knew that it was worth the investment and I am happy to confirm that this was a correct assessment.  I have worn this coat for years and still love it. So my message today is this. I know we’re not exactly dressing up and painting the town red BUT if you’re looking to put your money into a good investment piece this season-go for a basic camel wrap coat. You can find them at every price point and this is one coat that can be dressed down or dressed up to the nines. As my Mother use to say: Good taste never goes out of style and I’d like to add to Mom’s mantra “Buy Well Buy Once.” I know this coat is a keeper  and one I will continue to wear for years to come. And that my Glamour Girls is a Wrap on The Camel Wrap Coat.

Stylish White Shirting

Posted By: Terri
Category: Wardrobe basics

Stylish… white shirting? YES, you’re reading that correctly. Most of the time style mavens (like you) think the classic white shirt is oh so boring.But, I want to take a moment and have you reconsider this style staple.

There are so many reasons to have at least three (YESSS-3-white shirts in your closet at all times:

  • The classic button down, long sleeve- preferably in a high grade cotton that is not prone to wrinkle. There are endless style options for the classic button down-dress it up or down and you’ll always look pulled together and chic.

A perfect pairing for Summer-White on White
Dress it up!
  • Your second white blouse would be constructed using a more luxury fabric (think: silk, silk charmeuse or a high grade polyester that looks like silk).

KJ Selections $23.96
  • Lastly, the third white blouse in your closet should lean toward dressy. This could be a feminine tuxedo shirt , or another style with some interesting detailing.
Bow Knot Ruffle Blouse by Speakshop $79.00 ON SALE $28.95
D2C Shop $49.90

With these three options in in your wardrobe- I promise (hand over heart and standing in my closet) that you will NEVER be without a perfect pairing to wear ever again.

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.”

Back to Basic(s)

Category: Wardrobe basics

Nothing and I do mean nothing is more basic than your classic white shirt. After you stop YAWNING at the mere mention of this closet staple might I just say that the white shirt has a multitude of style options (dress it up -pair with a skirt-pencil, long and short) and pants or dress down with jeans, it can  be a stylish and crisp alternative to amp up your style quotient.

The white shirt  is a blank canvas, allowing you to accessorize to the 10th power  and customize your look to attain  uber fabulousness. You can pair it with anything and everything. Put on a pair of amazing earrings, or  add a statement necklace, opt for a super stylish footwear (pump,boots,loafers) and WHAH LAH! You’ll be amazed at  how a simple white shirt can elevate your entire look to the next level.

My Moto

I’ve been a fan of the wardrobe staple leather motorcycle (abbreviation Moto) jacket for as long as I can remember. Among the absolute favorites in my closet is my beloved Vakko moto that I purchased more than 10 years ago and spent a small fortune on BUT the leather was “like butter” and all these years later it still stands the test of time. If I can advise you on purchasing one item that you can wear year after year with a plethora of fashion possibilities I urge you to buy a leather or faux leather moto jacket. You will thank me in the morning and for many morning to come.

My Vakko Moto.. Still.... "like butter"

Not a fan of “Basic Black” try a neutral tone…think taupe/grey/brown.
