Flowy Tops & Tees

Skip the skin-tight tops this summer and keep it cool with flowing silhouettes that don’t put any pressure on your style (literally!). Stockpile breathable summer fabrics in loose knits and breezy wovens that you can move, shake and dance in! Whether it’s a neutral color or bold pop-color, pair your breeziest tees with simple, lightweight bottom layers like: chambray pants, lightweight denim, midi-skirts and your favorite maxis.

Practical Carryalls

Find you a bag to do everything this summer—we personally dig a summer carryall. Literally, carry it all in this season’s totes and crossbody bags. From a roomy tote to house everything you need to an essentials-only crossbody, updating your handbag closet for the easiest way to spruce up your everyday look.

Breezy Dresses and Rompers

Looking for a “get ready in 5” piece? Reach for a romper or an easy, breezy dress to make summer dressing a snap. We love them for their weekend versatility and wearability—from the beach, to errands, to everything in-between, pair them with your comfiest sneakers or most stylish wedges for date-night to traveling light.

Not Just a Bra…It’s a Solution: Shapeez!

Get beautiful, back-smoothing comfort and reclaim your wardrobe from the closet. Shapeez back smoothing bras really do shape, support, slim, and smooth.

Shapeez Banner

In 2005 Shapeez co-founder Staci Berner was determined to find a supportive yet comfortable bra that didn’t solve one problem and cause another. After trying everything on the market and being completely disillusioned and disappointed with all of them, she took matters into her own hands. With an old bra in hand and some stretch fabric, she cleverly stitched together a garment that would meet all her needs. The evolution of undergarments began and Shapeez was formed.

The Shapeez brand now manufactures 12 unique and patented styles proudly manufactured in North America using the highest quality, environmentally conscious components. Shapeez products are based on the notion that a woman does not have to compromise to have a bra that delivers 360 degrees of shaping, support and comfort. Our garments give a woman confidence right off the hanger, and are beloved by stylists, celebrities, and women around the world.

Your Guide to Editing Your Closet

Cleaning out your closet is a task that’s about as much fun as going to the dentist or filling out lengthy paperwork, but just like paying bills, it must be done. To make this daunting-yet-totally-refreshing experience easier on you, we created a friendly guide that will help you decide what’s worth keeping and what needs to go. The result will be a perfectly edited wardrobe, which will make getting ready even easier. Closet clutter, be gone!

Blazers

Keep your best blazers, but go ahead and sell or donate the ones that are uncomfortably too tight or faded far from their original color.

Blouses and Button-Down Shirts

Always maintain a solid selection of office-appropriate blouses in your closet. Get rid of any ill-fitting or permanently stained blouses and button-down shirts.

Dresses

When editing your dresses, ask yourself one question. Have you tried it on three times in the past year, without actually wearing it? If so, it’s time to realize it’s just not going to happen.

Jeans

Try on every pair and make a pile of your favorites. From there, keep one or two of each jean style: skinny, cropped, boyfriend, distressed, boot-cut, and flared—you want to have options. Confession: A minor denim addiction isn’t entirely a bad thing, so we also suggest keeping a larger selection of the style that is most flattering for your body.

Sweaters

Did it shrink in the dryer? Donate it. Is it pilling like crazy? Donate it. Does it have moth holes that aren’t worth fixing? Donate it. Is it fine, but very similar to other pieces you already own? Keep two (okay, three) of your favorites, and donate the rest.

Skirts

Can you think of at least three occasions and ways to wear a particular skirt? If not, this may be the moment to officially retire it.

Trousers

Check the bottom of your pants: are the ends tattered and stained? If so, it’s time to let them go. (Side note: if you properly tailor your trousers, this shouldn’t happen!)

Remember, we are your style specialists. If you ever have any questions on what to keep and what to purge, mixing and matching old with new or just need some general style advise…we’re here for you!

Our Top 3 Fall Trend Picks

There are a handful of strong recurring looks that emerged with a vengeance from the high-fashion Fall 2016 runways. Finally, months after daydreaming about when we could wear the looks from catwalk, the time is finally here.

To make things easy on you, we’re breaking it all down right here: a hit list of the top trends you’ll be wearing all Fall straight from “Runway to Reality”. Read on for the full report…

Statement Furs

statement-fur-trend

Overall, fur—both real and faux—made a strong showing on fall runways in various forms, but it was the use of bold colors and prints that really caught our eye.

Ruffles

ruffles-trend

We’re used to seeing over-the-top pieces on runways that often employ laughable proportions. But for fall, designers like Norma Kamali managed to fuse structured high-fashion ruffles with wearability.

Plaid Coats

plaid-overcoats-trend

Fall runways usually bring more tartan than we can handle, but this year, labels like Calvin Klein and Victoria Beckham approached plaid in a much cleaner, subtler, muted way, and used the print on everything from outerwear to cocktail dresses.
