5 Ways to Perk Up Your Wardrobe

Well darling girls, Groundhog Day has come and gone and apparently Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so it looks like we're in for another six weeks of winter. And while I'm all for keeping toasty warm in my fleecy boots, skinny jeans and cashmere sweater, I'm also gearing up to infuse my wardrobe with the luscious floral's and flirty floaty fabrics of spring. But there's always that pesky little problem of jumping the gun, fashion-wise, before the seasons have officially marched on. I don't know about you, but I get a tad irritated with girls who saunter about in strappy skyscrapers and sleeveless dresses as if it's a balmy spring day, when all the while their lips are turning blue and their teeth are chattering because the temps are barely registering above 40°.

Case in point: Girly and I were meeting for lunch at a darling little bistro downtown, and while the sun was shining and the sky was blue, the windy was whipping across the bay and the temps were definitely in the frigid digits, so we had both dressed accordingly: me, in knee-high boots, tights and a belted jacket over a sheath dress; Girly, in oh-so-chic skinnies, ankle boots, cashmere sweater and vintage style motorcycle jacket. And while both our ensembles were très chic and weather appropriate, we decided that we weren't quite doing justice to the gorgeous sunshine and that certain something that celebrates the promise of spring.

And then, along came Polly. (And not in a Jennifer Aniston kind of way, sorry to say.) This particular Polly works in my building (albeit thankfully not in my office) and prides herself on being at the forefront of fashion. She is, in fact, so cutting edge that she often skips entire seasons in order to be on the cusp of the next trend. Anyhoo, as Girly and I sat at our table by the window, conducting our usual fashion hit-or-miss appraisal of passersby, we saw Polly making her way down the sidewalk attired in a gorgeous all-white ensemble that would be perfect for lunch at an outdoor bistro…in July. White mini skirt, silk shell, sheer blouse and visibly frozen toes peeping from her sassy skyscrapers…and it's barely February! (Her handbag, however, was gorgeous!) As she teetered her way down the sidewalk, in obvious discomfort with teeth chattering, her nose all red and eyes tearing inMuse Ten the wind, I began to feel a bit sorry for her. I was just about to tap on the window and beckon her to come inside and join us, when we saw Steve from Accounting rush out of the cafe next door, remove his jacket and slip it over Polly's shivering shoulders.Next thing we knew, Polly had a date for lunch! Hmmm, perhaps inappropriate seasonal fashion is the new singles bar, no?

You know your winter wardrobe is going to have to keep you covered for several more weeks, so what do you do when you have fashion cabin fever? Here are a few tips for giving your seasonal fashions a style boost:

Add a pop of color. Your tawny tans, burnished browns, and muted greys will have a whole new life with a little pop of color. Switch out your brown jacket or blazer with a figure flattering jacket or sweater in a vibrant hue. Add a gorgeous ruffled blouse to your basic work suit. Or a pair of patent maryjane' s will really give your wardrobe some extra mileage.

Fabulous Florals. There is nothing like a floral print to add a little life to an ensemble. Trade out your basic black pencil skirt for a flirty floral. Or try pairing a floral sweater with that black pencil skirt, instead of your usual blazer. A pretty floral print dress worn with a belted sweater or jacket is also perfection!

Sweater Girl. Pair a gorgeous cardigan in a soft sherbet shade with your tweed or wool trousers for a sassy spring look. You've been wearing heavy sweaters all winter long, so choose something a little more lightweight, like a tissue cashmere or a soft silk knit. So many great styles — like the cropped-sleeve cardigan and the wrap cardigan, and a veritable smorgasbord of colors!

Ruffle things up. Nothing adds a more feminine flair than ruffles. We're not talking Shirley Temple ruffles, but gorgeous textured ruffles on knits and sweaters, skirts and dresses, even shoes! Just remember: less is more when it comes to ruffles, so limit this trend to just one piece.

Accessory Accents. Every fashionista worth her Louboutins knows that the best way to give an ensemble a little oomph is with great accessories! And the best thing about it is that accessories can be mixed and matched with so many different outfits that suddenly the possibilities are endless! That's why I like to treat my accessories as investments. Excellent quality handbags and shoes, a classic and stylish watch, simple yet elegant fine jewelry and totally fun fashion jewelry. Accessories are like frosting on the cake, and let's face it, a cake without frosting isn't worth the time or the calories.

Well darling girls, I'd better get crack-a-lackin' if I'm going to get my winter wardrobe spruced up in time for Valentine's Day! Happy shopping!

xoxo,

The patented 2-in-1 bottle offers a brilliant, vivid base shade perfectly paired with a superior clear protein nail treatment top coat to provide long lasting wear and healthy nails. 


Footzyrolls!! The Perfect Little Valentine!

After years of strutting in stilettos, and complaints from boyfriends about their early departures from special events due to aching feet, sisters Jenifer and Sarah Caplan recognized the need for a portable, street walkable flat and Footzyrolls were born. They designed the smallest "rollable shoe" that can be folded up and tucked into a clutch, so when your feet are throbbing after a long day or night in heels, you can have immediate relief and do a quick shoe change right on the street. They've designed chic ballet flats that sell for only $25 - $30 a pair. The soles of the shoes are street-walkable, so they can be used over and over again, and they provide the comfort and relief of a slipper.

Available in a variety of colors and finishes to match every outfit, Footzyrolls retail from $25 - $30 and are available at www.footzyrolls.com.
