Thanksgiving Travel

It's almost November. Pumpkin spice season has been in full swing for weeks now. In less than a month, we in the US will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the largest travel weekend of the year, and the largest shopping weekend as well. Thank you Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

I Need a Hero! (AKA: I’ve Got Nothing to Wear!)

Do you stare into your generous closet and think "I have nothing to wear!"? Some days we are lacking inspiration, but often we have a Heroes/Basics imbalance. Every closet needs both, but when we have too many of one, and not enough of the other, it can be hard to get dressed. What'a a Hero?… Continue reading I Need a Hero!

Abundance… When does Enough become Too Much?

Business Dress, Personality

Clothing as Language

I was privileged to be asked to participate in a Professional Empowerment Seminar for women this week! The sponsor was a financial advisor particularly interested in helping women secure their financial independence. While finance and fashion may seem an odd combination, empowerment is at the root of how both of us work. I thought I… Continue reading Clothing as Language

Why I Love a Good Capusle

Traveling through this strange and wonderful adventure we call life, I keep finding that people often fall into one of two categories when it comes to clothing. Some are Options Lovers, and others are Limits Lovers. You may be an Options Lover, and for you a closet full of a rainbow of colors, styles, and… Continue reading Why I Love a Good Capusle

Random Thoughts on Inventory

I have always been an inventory taker and list maker; it is just part of my personality. I remember sitting up in the branches of the willow tree in our front yard (I spend countless childhood hours up there.) thinking about what toys I would take if my family had to move and all I… Continue reading Random Thoughts on Inventory
