2014 is HERE! Is your closet ready?
Each new year we all reflect on the previous one, make resolutions and goals, feel refreshed and ready for what life has in store for us, but sometimes, despite feeling great inside, the clutter in your own space can take you off that cloud 9 you’re on. Some people look forward to cleaning out their closet every year and are great at it, but some of us don’t even know where to start. I’ll admit I have a little trouble with this myself, but I’ve had a little more ease with the system I’m about to show you. Take a weekend and go through the clutter in your space, not just your closet, and bring a whole new energy to your living space and self.
Coated denim has been a trend for a few season’s now and has really amped up the Denim game. Coating the denim happens when the finished garment is dipped in a liquid that resembles wax. When it dries, it adds texture and a leather like effect.
Printed denim is an easy way to wear a statement piece with comfort and effortless style. With a number of ways to style your printed denim, they can be worn for numerous occasions or they can spruce up your everyday look. For the eccentric, a colorful or edgy print is perfection or for those of you that like to keep it classy, you can invest in a tonal, printed pair which isn’t as “loud”. The trend has taken off the past few years and is still going strong, so we thought we’d highlight a few of our favorites. Enjoy!

I’m sure there’s a survey somewhere in the world that states that more than 50% of people wait until the week of, to get a Halloween costume. They’re usually scrambling, Halloween store hopping and internet searching, settling with a purchase of an overpriced, poor quality costume that they will never, ever wear again… or at least for 5 years until everyone can forget about it, just in time for you to bring it back out.
Whenever my friends come to me all out of options (and hope) I simply tell them to look in their closet. You wouldn’t really think to look there or you might be uninspired by your collection at the time, but there are TONS of options that you have right in your own home, saving you that little bit of extra dough. Believe it or not, denim is the base of a lot of costumes and it’s something we all have to work with. If you don’t have the type of denim that fits your outfit, head over to your local Goodwill and pick up a pair of $5 jeans to rip up and contour as you please. Now, let me give you one less thing to worry about this Halloween… ON TO THE COSTUMES!
