Mix It Up!

By Friday, January 30, 2015 0 No tags Permalink 0

Print and pattern mixing is something I really admire, however, when its time to get dressed I rarely execute it. So I’ve decided to research this a little more and challenge myself to mix it up in the upcoming season. I started my research on the vortex known as Pinterest. I found a few guides and started pinning away. Check out my board here.Follow Piece, Love and Sole’s board Print & Pattern Mixing on Pinterest.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has difficulty carrying out this look so here we go. This guide from History in High Heels is a good point of reference. So we can start here. Mixing Prints

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Closet Organization

By Thursday, January 22, 2015 0 Permalink 0

Every 6 months I go through my drawers and closets to get rid of stuff that I can’t fit (but pretended that I could) or haven’t worn. I don’t plan on quitting shopping any time soon so I have to be sure that my small “walk-in” closet isn’t constantly spilling over. I loathe doing this but after my closet shrinks back down to its well-organized self I feel a lot better. Another thing I hate is organizing…but again you do feel much better once you’ve finished.  So here’s my easy guide to organizing and making the best use of your closet space.

I found this guide on WhoWhatWear via Pinterest and it was useful in my “purge” over the weekend. It definitely sparked a self conversation about some of those things I just couldn’t quite get rid of the last time around (Cropped leopard blazer, I’m talking to you). So start here. Closet Purge

Fab 5: Golden Globe Awards

There was a wide variety of fashion on the red carpet at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards last night. While there weren’t really any reoccurring trends there were a few things that caught my eye and a few items that made me cringe. Here are some of my favorites. Golden Globes(Clockwise from Left)

Jessica Chastain looked sexy in this Atelier Versace dress. I must say that this picture doesn’t do the color justice.

Ellie Kemper caught my eye in this beaded Naeem Khan column dress.

Felicity Jones gave us classic ball gown in this Dior number. I love this color!

Katherine Heigl was stunning in this navy Zac Posen dress.

Emma Stone gets the wildcard of the night with this Lanvin jumpsuit that I think is perfect for this type of awards show.

Style Inspiration: Grandma Winnie

Winnie

I have to be honest, I debated on posting this for quite some time but the time is right and I’m happy that I did. When my grandmother passed away in November, my cousins and I knew we wanted to do something to memorialize her. We decided to put together a slideshow. As we sifted through endless pictures there were quite a few that caught my eye. The ones that particularly stood out were those where she was wearing clothing that was still relevant today. These three have to be my favorite. I know these items will definitely be in my spring/summer 2015 rotation. You can shop similar items by clicking on the pictures below. Style11) A Floral Pencil Skirt and Tee: Such a classic ensemble that can be worn anywhere. (Those shades though!)Style32) A Wrap Dress: Another “go anywhere” staple that definitely embodies femininity.Style23) A Jumpsuit: I sure do love a jumpsuit so this was definitely a winner in my book!
