We all know I’m a simple dresser. I mean, have you seen my hauls? I usually stick to a mix of basics, (There’s nothing wrong with that!) but sometimes I want to get more adventurous. Investing in statement pieces can feel like a huge risk and in the past I’ve made the mistake of making an impulse purchase that I end up never wearing.
Statement pieces aren’t for everyone. If you want to try them, you have to make them work for you, not against you. My biggest tip for keeping bold beauties from ending up in the back of your closet? Find classic silhouettes in bold prints and colors that you love.
I know it’s no longer 2017, but I had the most perfect birthday and I need to talk about it. I spent it helping to host an event at work for our customers with some of my favorite Colorado gals. It was a fun and fulfilling day that only got better when I looked up from the counter to see B walking into the store. He and his parents had arranged a big surprise visit for me and I couldn’t be more thankful. We headed to one of my favorite Denver restaurants, Osteria Marco, for a dinner of bread, cheese, and cocktails. Oh, and I went home with a couple of new pieces I bought myself from the store that I thought I’d share with you. That’s right, it’s time for the Birthday Splurge 2017.
If you’re like me, you’re scrambling right now. Holiday parties and get togethers left and right and I feel very unprepared. The one thing about party wear is that I don’t tend to get good continued use out of the pieces. I’ve rounded up my favorite options for your holiday parties and events that you can wear again and again after the party is over. PS I’ve included both plus size and straight sized options. Everybody wins!
