What I Wore: Draper James for ELOQUII

Outfit Posts Summer

Sometimes designer collabs are disappointing, and sometimes they're pretty fantastic. Other than one t-shirt I tried a while ago, everything I've seen and tried from the Draper James X ELOQUII collection has been stellar in regard to quality and style. I also love that the collection goes down to a size 12! Receiving a store credit in thanks for being part of an ELOQUII fashion show a couple months past,…

What I Wore: The Perfect Summer Dress

Outfit Posts Summer

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect summer dress. That dress that doesn't require special undergarments, will cover my bra, will hide sweat stains, isn't too tight but isn't a muumuu, not too long but I can pick something up off the ground without flashing the world, can dress up and down with ease, isn't made of a sweaty sticky fabric, can be put in the wash, and has…

How to tell the difference between t-shirts, how to find a refined t-shirt that can dress up and down, what is the fabric content and the best place to find them in regular and plus sizes.

Real Life Capsule Wardrobe: The Refined T-Shirt

Capsule Wardrobes Outfit Posts Spring

Not all t-shirts are created equal. There's the stiff square ones you get free for being part of a fun run, the lightweight v-necks you pick up at Target and wear with everything from sweatpants to ankle pants and a cardigan on Casual Friday, there's ones of silk and linen and those $200 ones that look an awful lot like the one you have from Target… and then there's the…

Real Life Capsule Wardrobe: The Ivory Blazer

Capsule Wardrobes Outfit Posts Spring

White, ivory, cream… it doesn't matter which color you choose.  Having a light colored blazer in your closet is a game changer and a regular addition to the capsule wardrobes I create on Wardrobe Oxygen.  Unlike grey which reads corporate, navy which can be hard to match, and black which can often be too severe and hard to match, ivory is a winner.  It works as an accent, not needing…

Real Life Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule Wardrobes Fashion Advice

I regularly write about capsule wardrobes and create capsule wardrobes for different situations, but I rarely walk the talk. I feature outfit posts, but rarely any cohesion from look to look. This post features a real life capsule wardrobe created from items currently residing in my closet.  Seven pieces of clothing, three pairs of shoes, five accessories to create 17 different looks for work, play, and beyond. Some of these…

What I Wore: Silk and Linen

Outfit Posts Spring

For years I shied from linen. I'm already a klutz who often has a dribble of coffee on her shirt, a smear of cream cheese on her cuff. To add wrinkles and creases to my look would just make me look like a slob. If you go through my archives, rarely will you see linen or even 100% cotton. If it can wrinkle, I usually don't even buy it. But…

What I Wore: Bold Floral

Outfit Posts Spring

A fan of both Marimekko and Georgia O'Keeffe, when I saw this ELOQUII red floral jumpsuit I HAD to have it!

What I Wore: CARE at the Embassy of Finland

Since then, CARE has grown to become a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE places special focus on working alongside poor girls and women because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to lift whole…
