Today I HAVE to share this DIY I came across. I woke up at like 4am & ended up coming across this blog. I have never read it before, so I assume my 4am wakeup call was a preordination for me to find this post (I don’t think that’s a word, but hey it works). I know some of you have gorgeous scarves & a sweatshirt or two (million) sitting around. If you have basic sewing skills (or a friend or relative who is), you’ve gotta try this!
This phenom took this:
And made THIS!!!!
So obviously, none of these pics are mine. I just had to share them because she absolutely inspired me! Now I gotta go get some scarves & coordinating sweatshirts. And who can’t use an excuse to buy more of either?! lol Anyway, I hope this DIY has inspired you to make one, have someone make you one, or go on the hunt for one like it. Oh yeah, I’ve linked the pics to her post & if you have problems getting it to work, here’s her link:

I love my readers! I also feel for you when I hear about your braving blustery winds & low temps without a scarf on. So I decided to release this collection just for you!!
These luxurious 80″ x 20″ 100% acrylic knit 2 tone mufflers are gorgeous & keep you toasty warm while being absolutely stylish! They can’t be beat at $25
Speaking of stylish…
Last but definitely not least, try one of these poly scarves in fun prints to add warmth & fashion flare to your outfit. Gorgeous & glamorous at only $20!
I’ll have more sweets & treats for you tomorrow on my Work Wear Wednesday special, so come back soon!
If you’d like to ask a question or want to place an order, comment below or use the contact me tab above. Orders are processed immediately & arrive to you in about 10 days. Thanks for stopping by!
We call work “the grind” for a reason, but it doesn’t have to be all bad! So let’s focus on the positive. Look great while you’re at work & the compliments make the day fly by! Here are some great fall looks that’ll have you feeling better while making that money…
As soon as I saw these bracelets, I fell in love with them! They have the perfect amount of flair for everyday wear, but are conservative if you have a more modest workplace atmosphere. They come in a ton of colors, so you’re sure to find one that suits your fashion palette! They are debuting at only $20, so get an armload for you or a friend!

Up next, a new collection of workplace pieces that will blow your mind!
Not to sound arrogant, but I’m always hearing “I love your outfit, especially your jewelry!” It’s almost always followed by the same question. “How did you know to put those pieces together?” Or, “I wish I could put together outfits in my closet like that.” I always reply, “YOU CAN!” It just takes a little time, patience & imagination.
We as women know that when you find something great, share it with your friends!! So as I share my techniques with you, promise to share it with your friends. Or better yet, show them! When they see you with your revamped, “new” wardrobe, they’ll want to know how you did it!
I remember school shopping with my parents & having to put on a “Fashion Show” using all the items I’d just gotten. Even though it seemed to be the most unnecessary practice, I can now see its benefit. You get to see the colors in real lighting (store lighting is horribly deceptive) & you get to toss on accessories to see how it’ll really work for you!
So I’ve compiled some looks that are great for any lady at any stage. I’ve found this lady who does the BEST videos on outfits for curvy girls (yes, I am one) but they are global looks so they’ll work for anyone. If you love her ideas like I do, like her videos & subscribe. Tell her The Jewelry Lady send you!
Ok, so on to the good stuff. To make it easier to browse, I’ve listed sites & links here for your enjoyment. So by using these along with my Wardrobe Test will ensure you have a vibrant, functional wardrobe all year long!
Great work outfit ideas…
It’s really chilly here, so these are great ways to modify your cape…
This one is great, but I must make one note. Do not wear a sheer shirt to work! Showing your bra is not cool. Throw a cami underneath & you’re good to go! Without further ado…
Great tips for wearing jackets…
Great ways to wear blazers…
Finally, rock that denim vest…
Thanks for hanging out & I’ll be back with more shares soon!

Say it with me:
I think you get the idea. So let’s do something about it. You want more space in your closet. (probably to fill it up again, but that’s not what I’m focusing on! lol) No judgement. Anyway, even if you want to clean your closet out to go shopping again or if you want to make it look prettier, you need a plan of action. Don’t just jump in, get frustrated & give up. It could end up looking worse than when you started! So here are a few tips & tricks that will help you clean out. I’ll post some more ideas on how to make your closet pretty soon, so be on the lookout! Here are some items to consider tossing:
That’s right! Anything too tight, too revealing or some outdated fashion fad (that never should have existed) is a good candidate to toss. Here are some tips to make room for your fall clothes:
1. Cut down your closet by 25% by asking yourself this one question: “If I were shopping right this second, would I buy this?” If the answer’s no, out it goes.
2. If you have a small closet, never keep your shoes in clunky shoe boxes. Instead, line up them on the floor or use a tension rod. Line them up side by side with the heel of one shoe next to the toe of the next & save even more space!
3. Don’t buy items you know you won’t properly care for. For example, if you know you’re never going to hand-wash that delicate cami or beaded sweater, don’t buy it.
4. Have an item you need to part with but don’t know how to let it go? Give it to a friend who always eyed it! Gifting items is a great way to part with a loved item.
5. Swap with a friend or group of friends! Include clothing, jewelry, handbags & other accessories. Then exchange info on sales & deals & make a girl’s night out of it!
6. Donate to a women’s shelter or homeless shelter.
7. Donate to a local school. Most schools have a clothes pantry.
9. Is it beyond repair? Consider using it as a dusting rag!
10. Host your own giveaway! Use Craigslist or Facebook to advertise it & let people come take what they need. You don’t have to do it at your house, either. Utilize a local park, ask a church to allow you to use their space, or find a free meeting room (like at Deep Roots) and “give” away!
Here’s a video on how to make the most out of really tight spaces. Even if your space isn’t small, you can still optimize the space you have! Then after the video, there are some fashion staples that will make updating your look easy.
Here’s the link to the video to cut/paste in case the picture link doesn’t work:
With that in mind, while you’re sorting, donating, tossing, repurposing or swapping, do you have the right accessories for the season? Although vibrant jewel tones are the focus this fall, your favorite color is never out of style! Here are some style inspirations for your wardrobe this season…
