I can’t stand the word “timeless.” In my mind, it conjures up the thought of grandma cardigans and overly staid, boring, classic clothes. But really, timeless is just a word, and as I think about it, much of wardrobe is timeless (however, not boring!) I have had many items in my wardrobe upwards of 7 years!

How Simple Summer Dresses Save Me

Most days aren’t cool enough yet for a winter sweater, yet we get this feeling simply because the calendar says “fall” and “back-to-school” that it’s too late to wear clothes in spring colors that are most likely the perfect weight. But never fear! As a professional, wardrobe and image consultant, I’ve found a solution! First, it’s important to have plenty of basics in 3 season fabrics.
