Happy day, dearest reader! Since the 1st of June, I have been participating in a dressing challenge. It's a way to stretch your style muscles by wearing 100 different outfits 100 days in a row. (Even a month is a good challenge!) People interpret that word "different" in multiple ways! I've seen someone to whom… Continue reading #100outfits100days Faves
Thank you, dear reader! We're having a little party today here at closetplay.biz! Today is my blog's first birthday (or first bloggiversary?), so to celebrate, I am sharing this past year's most popular posts. I am pleasantly surprised to still be here, and enjoying your company.

Hello dear reader, It is a time-consuming labor of love creating content and visuals three days a week for a blog. Just over a week ago it was made even harder by the buy-out and closure of Polyvore, a platform used by bloggers galore, and tens of thousands of other creative people around the world… Continue reading RIP Polyvore
Happy day, fabulous readers! It's that time again... Valentine's Day is around the proverbial corner. Back in December, I had the privilege of pulling some style picks for Augusta Magazine to be featured in their February issue. That was a real trick in the weeks running up to Christmas, when all stores are focused on… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
I know... Wear Red Day for Women's Heart Health Awareness may not be high on your list of priorities for today, but it is on mine.

I'm not much of a resolution maker... I love the fresh start of a new year as much as anyone, but sticking to resolutions is not my strong suit. I prefer to take each day or hour new as it comes and start fresh where I am rather than wait for someone else's marker. Since… Continue reading Style Resolutions
I wish you a Happy Christmas and a New Year full of joyful blessings! When I took my first tentative steps into the blogosphere, I was prepared for it to be hard work, and am thankful for the opportunity. I will never figure it all out, and that's okay with me. As long as I… Continue reading Merry Christmas and a Very Happy and Blessed New Year!
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
The contest to win a free Personal Style Consultation or Wardrobe Audit has been open for just on two weeks. My readers, and FB followers have shared interesting responses to the contest, ranging from "Why would I want to let someone see the mess that is my closet?" (My answer: "For help with it?") to… Continue reading Drumroll, please!
Long, long ago, when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth, and I was a young college student, I did a stint at our dorm area radio station as a weekend morning DJ with a four hour show. No one wanted the Sunday morning 8-12 slot. Everyone was asleep, and being there at 8 on a Sunday… Continue reading Buzz on Biz Podcast
