Why I cut the sleeves off my grandmas Chanel blazer

I had my grandmas Chanel blazer turned into a vest. I knew I’d wear it ten times more if it were a vest. If you’ve been following me, you know I looove vests.

We make a lot of decisions in our day-to-day lives and getting dressed doesn’t have to be one more (stressful) decision.  

 I’m all about ease and looking put-together quickly.

  For me and most of my clients, versatility is vital and it’s exactly why I made this blazer a vest.

What’s in your closet that you could transform so you’d wear it more often?  Maybe it’s as simple as lengthening the arms? Hemming an inch or two from a pant?  Taking your purse to be professionally cleaned?

THREE IDEAS TO TRANSFORM YOUR MAYBE-PIECE INTO -I-WANT-TO-WEAR-IT-ALL-THE-TIME:
• Hem a maxi so you can wear it casually (READ: MORE OFTEN) with a pair of metallic flat sandals/booties/shoes
• Remove the sleeves from a blazer
• Change the buttons on a blazer or a coat

I also RIT dyed it a brighter pink. This was a little crazy so I’m not sure I’d recommend you doing so. I’m suuuuper glad I did though!

Carrie Bradshaw: Signature style descriptions:

Anything goes. Pattern mixing. Textures. Big accessories. Higher shoes the better.

 

She’d layer the stripe tee under the printed dress, roll up the cuffs of the denim jacket (stripe layer tee peeking out) tie the scarf around her head and would probably wear three of this necklace and top it off with these earrings.

The one heel to buy this spring-summer

This is the one heel to buy for spring/summer

The $99 go-with-everything shoe to be on trend this spring/summer

As you know I’m not a big trend person unless you want to try it – (which, I recommend buying the trend inexpensively).  But… I’m happy to see all the stacked heels in trend for spring summer.  It’s the best do-it-all heel of heels.

Comfortable and chic.  You can wear this neutral heel to work, weddings, showers and out with friends.  Seriously, I love it (and own many).

The Only Fashion Rule to Follow

If you haven’t heard of this rule-it’s the only “rule” in my (style) book that I follow and encourage other clients to follow.

 

The Rule of Three.

The Rule of Three: everything in your closet should work at least three different ways.  It’s my secret style weapon to avoid trends, not leave the dressing room disappointed (yet again) and to have the most versatile wardrobe yet.  The key to a slim and sufficient wardrobe is versatility.

 

    1. Can it work three different ways in your wardrobe?  

           If not:  Will you learn and take the time to make it work three different ways? (Be brutally honest here. If a sequined skirt throws you into a tailspin- don’t buy it!) 

 

 2.  If it’s an investment piece, will you wear it in a year, two or three?  

 For the utmost versatility, an investment piece should be classic in cut and style.  Think neutral core colors like black, camel, charcoal or navy. 

 

3.  If it weren’t on sale, would you be purchasing it or does it seem like an “I have to buy it-it’s on sale!”

Give yourself 24 hours if you’re on the fence.  If you’re still thinking about it the next day, go on back and buy it, enjoy!
