the CLOSET!!! Get it Organized!!!

Your closet . . . if it was already organized you wouldn’t be reading this article.

So let’s get to it step #1 – Admit your closet needs help and prepare yourself to tackle it.

Now after you’ve done that, let’s move onto step #2 – What’s actually wrong with the closet. Do you have too much in a little space? Enough space but unorganized? Not enough shelving or hanging space? Once you’ve conquered this, it will help determine if you just need to let go of a few things or buy storage containers/helpers.

#3 & #4 – These 2 are in your favor, depending on how you work. The next step after #2 should either be Sorting & Letting Go  then Creating Your Space, or Creating Your Space then Sorting & Letting Go. Depending on what your closet looks like, you might be able to look at it and immediately say I just need to add a few bins and then sort through and fold/put away. However, you might have a OMG I have things in here from 15 years ago, my shelf broke, I need to sort out and let go and then see what’s left and what I need to get.

Either way you tackle steps #3 & #4, sorting is still very important. Separate your seasonal items for out of season storage. Rid yourself of items that are just taking up space and begging for moths.

#5 MAINTAIN IT!! Once you have taken your time to clean out and organize your closet don’t put it to waste. Especially if this journey had you purchase storage helpers. Put things a way at night, or replace them when you take something else out, if you work at this, it should become routine!

Now here are some ACCESSORIES we found, perfect for closet organization!!

"Little Black Dress Hanging Jewelry Organizer" $24.99


"Park A Purse Organizer" $26

"Hanging Boot Shapers" 9.99 a pair

oOo! Terms :: BodyCon

Do you know what a BODYCON DRESS is? Short for “body conscious”, this style re-entered the fashion world from it’s dormant 80s sleep around 2008. It basically desrcibes anything that is skin tight and snug around your body. Something that of course “body conscious” people would dare to wear.

Body con dresses actually fit many shapes because of the body hugging snug fit that sucks you in and smoothes out your shape. As the trend progresses it’s moved on to include, skin tight pencil skirts, high waisted jeans paired w/ body suits, and snug dresses sans the bandage wrapped look, etc . . .

Nicki’s Brilliant in Teal

As we have all seen in the past, Nicki Minaj wears some very “creative” outfits. Call it style, fashion, or just plain ridiculous, we have to give the raptress a round of applause. Last night at the Grammy Nominations Concert, she looked fab!

Wearing a strapless, teal bodycon dress, with matching nail color, paired with a bright pink wig and coordinating pump, Nicki Minaj was tamed and chic. (Surely, she’ll be just the opposite at the actual awards ceremony) 

Do you know your ANIMAL PRINTS?

With animal prints coming out in different colors, paired with different designs, some aren’t as easy to recognize. Still important to know, fellas you wouldn’t want the miss telling you, she has CHEETAH print shoes, and you bring her back a TIGER print belt! (are we missing any patterns? let us know!!)

Now we pulled the Cheetah, Jaguar, and Leopard prints out from above because well they are quiet similar, even with seeing this, can you really tell the difference?

What’s your favorite pattern? And how do you like to wear it?


What’s the color for now? And next season? “BURNT” As color blocking transitions from fashionistas and runways to creative everyday style seekers, this fall fashion line up moves from BRIGHT to BURNT, and will be a heavy influence in the Winter and Spring seasons.

Colors like burnt orange, plum, mahogany, mustard yellow, the colors are so deep and rich, perfect for color blocking. Check out some of the “burnt” colors from Gucci’s 2011 Fall collection.

5 Style Commandments, according to Miss Piggy

Yes, Miss Piggy, a style icon that has creatively captured trends from the past 30+ years. (For a detailed “style watch” check out this article from What caught our eye after reading this article was Miss Piggy’s 5 Style Commandments. As a ploy to get consumers excited about the new Muppets movie (out now), InStyle (November 2011 issue) magazine sat down with Miss Piggy and let this fashionable icon indulge with a few tips.

“Style is about impressing your inner self, capturing your personal ethos, and, most importantly spending someone else’s money.”

“Being stylish means constantly maintaining your image, updating your look, and destroying old photos that show you with big hair and wearing spandex.”

“Always, always dress for yourself. Other wise it gets way too crowded in the dessing room.”

“Clothes are like friends: They should always complement your appearance.”

“Beauty is all about loving who your are. And if you have problems with that, may I suggest that you try loving who I am?”

Of course the commandments are delivered in a joking fashion but hold true to some good points!! Especially #4 “Clothes are like friends: They should always complement your appearance.” . . . sigh if everyone lived by that, we’d be bored without those embarrassing fashion mishaps photos we love to see!!

Ed Hardy Villian or Vodka?

Releasing in the US, just in time for the holiday shopping season is Ed Hardy’s “Villian”. A new his & hers fragrance.

A fruity/floral fragrance for “her” includes some fragrant notes as lychee, watermelon, lotus, magnolia, citrus notes while the “his” includes notes like lavendar, musk, sage, nutmeg, basil.

While the bottle size is notably for perfume, (Ed Hardy Villain for women will be available as a 75ml and 125ml eau de parfum while Ed Hardy Villain for men will ba available as a 75ml and 125ml eau de toilette.) the clear bottle packaging and the notable Ed Hardy designs bare a resemble to the Ed Hardy line of vodka . . .
