The Best Ideas for Creating an All-Season Classic Closet

Hello Fashionistas:

I have totally been MIA and I feel awful but my work load is just so jam-packed that I cannot seem to juggle work and blogging because if I cannot produce quality  posts for you guys, then I am doing a disservice to you. With that being said, I cannot promise a schedule for my posts but I can promise that whenever I do post, it will be worth the wait and the read!! So please continue to look for my posts and I thank you for your continued support during this very busy time in my life.

Today however I do have a very special treat for you all with a post from guest blogger Suzy Walsh. Suzy is the editor of The House of Elegance Fashion and she is going to give you insights for creating an all season classic closet.

For 90% of people, fashion is all about style blended with practicality. Many of us only shop with the clear idea that we would want to repeat the clothes. Of course, there are also times when one opts to high-end designer fashion. Building an all season wardrobe isn’t hard, as long we you know the art of mixing things together. Starting from the smallest accessories picked from the flea market to the more extensive essentials, you can always put up a good list when you know to define your personal style. In this post, find more about creating an all-season closet.

Think dual:

Even if you are someone who likes to shop every season, you know by now that there are some essential pieces that can easily translate from spring to fall with ease. Think of classic pieces, such as ankle boots, light sweaters and even a regular white shirt. Keep things that can double up for different needs, so that you can mix and match as you need.

Mix it up:

Some of the other things are more like classics and can work for many needs, such as the denim skirt, which works as the perfect mini choice for summers and with the leggings for the fall. In fact, men too have such similar choices, so if don’t own that essential white tee as yet, make sure you get one. click here for some great Adidas essentials, or go to the local streets now!

A set of sweaters and cardigans:

For spring 2015 and 2014, many designers opted for the sweater, which is quite a practical choice. While creating a classic closet, you need to have both cardigans and sweaters in the right balance. Apart from regular primary colours, try to add a few more unique printed designs. Since we are talking of things that can be translated from one season to another, think of more versatile materials that are light enough to be added to any look!

Pick shoes wisely:

Your closet is never complete without the right choice of shoes, so you will need to start with a few options to complete the collection. Think of choices like ballet flats and high stilettos- both being amazing staple options and can be used for any season. Also, try to get at least one pair of ankle boots and knee-high boots, which can be immensely worthy for fall and early spring. Other shoe styles to own include flatforms, ( are the shoes that generally have a thick sole which adds height but keep the feet flat) a pair of pumps and a classic set of wedges.

Accesories

Finally, you have to choose for accessories, which is easy because there are too many budget choices. There are a few things that can be considered essentials like dangler earrings, solitaire pendant, and a statement neckpiece. Use your personal style and redefine trends with a unique touch!

Review Of My July Olia Subscription Box

Hello Fashionistas:

So last month I posted my Olia Box subscription but in case you missed it, this is what I received in my June Box:

$RQ4OXMZI was not a huge fan of this necklace and as of yet I haven’t worn it. I have worn the bangles a couple of times and the earrings I think once. I subscribed to the box probably about 6 months ago at a cost of $35 per month for 3-4 jewelry items.

Here is my July Box:

olia1editedI do like the necklace but it is identical (except for a different colors) to the one I received in my May box from them. Even though the bracelets are a different texture, they are clearly the same style as the June Box.

My Decision & Review

I have decided to cancel my monthly subscription with Olia because I am just not satisfied with the style of jewelry that I am receiving. I would rather take the $35 I am giving them and purchase a necklace that better fits my style from Baublebar I feel that I have given the company a fair assessment and time to show me what they can do for me. I like statement necklaces and dainty earrings. Although the company has followed my requests with this, the style is not my style. I am going to have to rate them with…

A Flop thumbs-down-emojiHave you ever had to cancel a subscription box?
