I finally found time last night to put a few items onto my christmas wishlist. My mom told me she's got buying me too many pieces of clothing (booooo) this year because she has some other big things in mind, but I decided to send her a few things anyway.
The thing you see on here are from either Forever 21 or Urban Outfitters, which are my two favorite stores. The shoes are pretty easy. Two pairs of sneaks which I LOOOVE and the a pair of Jeffrey Campbell's. I know. I'm predictable.
A trend you'll probably see is Chiffon, also not surprising since I am obsessed with Chiffon right now. Two surprises, however, might be the tshirt, since I'm not a huge tshirt girl, and the pants, since the only pants I ever wear are jeans. The shirt I just though was sort of cool and edgy, but the pants are a bit of a risk for me. I couldn't stop going back to them, so I decided to throw them in there. Maybe someone will pick them up for me.
Can't wait until Thanksgiving!! It's getting closer!!! x. Jill.
The little black dress is a piece that will never go out of style; it is simply timeless. Due to the seasons changing soon, this is a piece you definitely want to make sure you have around for the holiday season.
There are so many styles of dresses, and it all depends on what kind of occasion you'll be using it for. For parties involving family and co-workers, you might want to keep a more sophisticated style in mind. I love the one pictured above, it could be worn to anything. Of course if you wanted something sexier, a dress with small straps or a strapless sweetheart style is always flattering.
In the picture above, she wears black tights with black shoes- a look that is so easy to pull off and visually appealing to the eye. The color is not broken up by bare legs, which makes your legs look longer. If you are brave and want to go stocking-less during the winter months, choose a fun bright colored shoe or a nude shoe that matches your skin tone as close as possible.
Victoria Beckham is a perfect example of the nude shoe- it matches her skin perfectly which creates the illusion of long legs.
The best part of the LBD? You can have fun with it! It's virtually timeless and can be worn to a wide variety of occasions. By mixing up your accessories you can make it more casual and fun, or sexy and chic.
My last post in refreshing and renewing your closet! Now that we've cleaned out our closet and saved the clothes that are best for us we can go ahead and put everything back inside our closet in the most organized way possible!
You want to start by fixing up your closet a bit. Right now my closet has one long shelf at the top and then the normal bar to hang my clothes on. It works well enough for now, but I'm redoing it very soon (pictures when I'm done). Put some shelves up, add some lights, and don't be afraid to decorate in there! It's the place where you store you clothes. It's okay to want to be inspired by the place where you store to tools to creating individuality.
Once you have that out of the way you can start putting your clothes back in. I suggest organizing by type first. Shirts together, pants together, dresses together, skirts together, the list goes on and on. Once you have everything organized then go back in and organize by color. This is going to make it SUPER easy to find things. If you want you can even do it by length of the shirt (crop tops, regular length, then tunics).
I hope all of these tips in this series were super helpful!! If you redo your closet take some pictures and send them to me in a comment! I would love to get some ideas for when I redo my room in a few weeks!! :)
Taking care of our skin is an essential step everyday; yes even during the cold months. UVA and UVB rays still penetrate through our atmosphere and are harmful to our skin and eyes. Make sure you take the extra step in picking out a moisturizer that has a minimum of SPF 15. This applies to guys as well as girls!
This moisturizer featured above is one of my tops picks; light and effective and can be found at any drugstore.
I mentioned on twitter early that everyone has to make a wish at 11:11 since today's date is 11/11/11! If you missed it this morning, you still have tonight to make your wishes! I know I made about a billion wishes and I'll make about a billion more tonight!
In honor of this very lucky day, I've put together a few of my favorite Lucky Brand pieces. What I love about Lucky Brand is how it's very country inspired a lot of the time. It's very earthy, but sophisticated. My favorite thing by far is lucky brand's shoes however. Whats your favorite lucky brand piece? let me know! x. Jill.
