The Royal dress…

29 Apr

And the winner is… Alexander McQueen. The late and extraordinary had designed Kate’s momentous wedding gown! Beautiful, chic, modern and vintage all at once, she looked like royalty!

Ladylike Color

17 Apr

Hi Complimenteers!

Two spring trends I’m loving: ladylike details and bold color, and combining the 2 make a splash like no other. As someone inspired by vintage, I’m excited for the high-waisted, A-line skirts and floral prints. The key to a ladylike skirt is in the length, which means covering up those legs girls! The perfect fit will sinch at the waist and flow down, stopping just below the knee or above the ankle (which makes it just as sexy as a mini-skirt)! A soft and feminine print will top it off.

Now, mesh these ideas with bright and bold color, and your closet is ready for spring! The great thing about color is that many of you already have a lot of colorful pieces in your closet right? The key to this trend is color blocking, meaning mixing-solid colored tops with solid-colored bottoms or accessories. AND, mixing and matching all types of color, even if you don’t think they match. Purple and yellow, blue and orange, pink and orange. If that is too bold for you, then blocking with black is also an awesome option. Remember colorful prints are also a great go-to trend for spring!

Here are some ideas I pulled from my closet, and I’ll let you in on a secret: the skirts are a find from Salvation Army! Don’t diss it until you try it. You’ll never know the gems you will find.

Happy shopping! Don’t forget to fill your closet full of compliments!

Thanks to my cousin, Ashley, I have more photos to share with you! Check out some of her college flashbacks! I think we can all admit to Halloween costumes such as these (photo 1), and I’m loving the black-patterned dress she has on in photo #2…very 50s/Audrey Hepburn! SPRING FASHION ALERT: the 50s-inspired housewife skirts, ladylike dresses are in for spring!

Go for the Brooch

8 Apr

Brooches — one of my accessory obsessions for years now! There was a time I looked at them as the least fashionable item on the planet, you know back in middle school and high school. My fashion taste has certainly changed over the years, and brooches (or pins, same thing) make the classiest edition to an outfit. Not just on your winter jacket or work blazer, but you can add a brooch to your favorite dress or sweater, or even better, a tailored vest. What makes this accessory trend a staple for women everywhere is the fact that it fits any woman. There are so many varieties and options to choose from when it comes to brooches! They fit any personality, any style! So the next time you are on a shopping spree, check out the jewelry section (clearance too- you’d be surprised the gems you’ll find!), or visit your local flea market and yard sales, you’ll find diamonds in the rough! And there is nothing wrong with digging in grandma’s closet for some inspiration 😉 So ladies, go brooch yourselves!! Check out a few favorites from my personal collection below. Until next time, happy shopping!

Some of my personal faves!

 

 

Compliment Closet Country Do

4 Apr

My choice of the best dressed at the CMA’s…Jennifer Nettles. The dress fit her like a glove; the belt was the perfect accent. Her styling was dead on– makeup, hair and jewelry! Her decision to skip on a necklace was simplistically beautiful. Agreed?
