In Case You Missed The Memo....


We've heard a lot of the dreaded word (whispering) Recession these days... From the Stimulus Plan, to the markets, car industry and even big name retailers are shuttering their doors as a result of the sluggish economy.

Fashionistas are debating about whether to splurge on that designer latte or head to Dunkin Donuts for their 99 cents special. Eating out or ordering in to save some cash. Decisions...Decisions....

While many may be able to sneak a designer piece or two (or three) there's a reality looming that many of us may have to re-shop our closets and provide our wardrobe with a new fashion afterlife....

Here's a few tips on how to Re-invent your look, Revive your wallets and Re-discover your closet

  • Pick your ten best pieces Select your favorites and build from there. Whether it's style, design or fabric, these pieces have an indisputable "it" factor. These pieces should scream Fabulous! If not.....throw it back!

  • Lay your pieces out (bed or floor) The idea is to visually see everything in front of you.

  • Get creative and begin styling the pieces to achieve different looks.
    Your choices should reflect the season's palette. A few color groupings this spring are... khaki, brown, ivory and gold with yellow and red accents or black, white, gray and silver with bright pink and turquoise accents. As a rule, two of your best pieces should be neutral for ease of mixing.

  • Head back into your closet and begin to edit what's left inside This is where the work begins.....

  • When it comes to getting rid of closet clutter...honesty is the best policy. Get rid of clothes that don’t fit, don’t flatter and you don’t wear. Be ruthless! Donate Items to your nearest Salvation Army, Good Will, or my personal favorite Dress For Success.

  • Turn your boudoir into a chic dressing room..... Make sure the lighting is great (open the blinds and let some sunshine in). Play your favorite party hits, have a glass of your favorite wine nearby (no reds near the clothing , please) .

  • Try everything on! Not only will your new looks surprise you, they'll have you amazed that you already own some of the season's must-haves....
