Refreshing My Closet For Spring

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

I'm really excited to share a story I collaborated on recently, when I invited DailyCandy's Fashion Editor, Jordan, into my closet to help me refresh and reorganize for Spring. 

Jordan's Look 
(She got excited when my closet for the first time, so we styled her in a simple and chic look for the shoot)

After finding a number of mohair sweaters, we decided to showcase as a favorite trend for spring. 

Another trend we were finding and feeling excited for is Mexican Mix & Match

A cute way to organize your rings and keep them on display, is via an Etsy Antler. I had this one custom made -- I got to choose the colors, and the actual Antler. It's to this day one of my favorite pieces in my apartment.

Recognize any of these? Organize high end pairs with polaroids!

Organization Tip: Clean out all of your bags! You'll find quite the selection of goodies. This metro card ended up having $5 on it!

Of course I forced Jordan into a DIY - it's in my nature.

My favorite pic from the shoot. A neon skirt and Zara shoes. 

What to Wear: Mixed Stripes & Feathers

Valentines DIY is Here: Mixed Media Clutch

Braid silk ribbon scraps and sew on tassels. 

Braid a different type of scrap fabric. The more mixed the media, the better.

With a hot glue gun, cover the back of the clutch in scrap fabric. I love flannel but am also a girlie girl with a bit of an edge, so I love the mix of the glitter and studs.

Place all of your strips on the clutch, and find an assortment that you like.

With a hot glue gun, glue everything onto the clutch. 

Seal the edges of your fabric backing with hot glue. 

The Materials

Happy V-Day!

Prints Charming is Here!

Designer collaborations. They are a thing and they are happening and you can try to be too cool for them, but guess what? You aren't. Because yet another reDONCulous designer collab, this time with Target is about to launch. Hard. This time, the prince of prints, Peter Pilotto, takes on a lust-worthy journey (drink! bachelor fans) of florals, stripes, mixing and matching, and all at one of the lowest price points I've seen in a collab.

Fire up that plastic ladies. Available in stores Sunday, February 9. Preview the entire collection here.

Freeze. Then Layer.

The middle/end of winter. We freeze and layer, then sweat and delayer. It's a grueling repetition, but it's New York City in the winter. One thing I've learned is to snag a good coat - right now - and set yourself up for next year. I grabbed this Mango (had never been in there before...not bad!) Anorak. It's a removable duck down vest with a goat fur collar, zipped over a wool jacket with leather sleeves. Layerable to the max!
