Inspiring closets

Our closet is probably one of the places that we spend much of our time. Although we may not think it, we are in our closets at least once a day. My closet is the place where I go not only to keep clothes, but to reflect on thoughts. My best ideas come out of being surrounded by what inspires and motivates me, my clothing. Let us look at where the celebs get their inspiration…

Olivia Palermo’s Closet– The City (not one of my favorite characters, but totally love that closet!)

2 inspirational designers & some fun facts

Juicy Couture

cf5ead34e32c32e1_JuicyCouture_Fall2007_2

Juicy Couture has been number one in my eyes for quite some time. Much of my wardrobe consists of Juicy, and I could never narrow down a favorite item because I love it all!

The styles of Gela (Wife of Duran Duran’s John Taylor) & Pamela (Love G&P) appeal to your some what younger crowd. Juicy’s style gives off a fun, contemporary feel. JC is noted for their signature velour tracksuits but also carry a variety of womens, mens & children’s clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, & cosmetics. Juicy Couture is owned by Liz Claiborne.

Tory Burch

I discovered Tory and her amazing flats two Christmas’s ago while shopping in NYC. I kept seeing women around the city with these ballet flats featuring Tory’s signature logo, displayed above. I did immediate research when I got home, finding out that the striking flats were by Tory Burch. I had to have a pair….

IMG_4208

I love my flats — I feel they are one of a kind, because most of her flats feature a gold logo, and are a solid color. These were made just for me :)

Tory is known for a bohemian chic style. Her bags are just as amazing as her shoes, I want all of her things! Tory was born in Valley Forge, PA and attended the University of Pennsylvania. What an inspiration knowing such talent can come from my home state of PA!

Great style @ any price

Do you ever see something that you would love to buy but you just cannot afford it? You should NEVER come across such an issue, since most of the time you could ALWAYS find the same item — at a much cheaper price! OR maybe your case is that you found a slightly cheaper piece that just doesn’t suit you. Almost always you could find the item at a higher price and better quality. Here is a few Fall pieces that are being worn RIGHT NOW. With a little time and effort you could always find what your looking for at the price you choose to pay.

Ankle Booties are very popular this Fall season. They could be paired with just about anything — jeans, leggings, skirts, & dresses.

The booties featured below can be found at Victoria’s Secret, by Colin Stewart. They are priced @ $89.00.

The next pair of booties are almost identical to those found at Victoria’s Secret. The only difference is in the price. The Target booties by Mossimo are priced at $29.00!

Along with the Fall comes exceptionally chilly weather. Therefore, we should never go out without a jacket let alone a stylish one. The new look these days is the “boyfriend” look. First there was the “boyfriend” tee, then the “boyfriend” jeans, now it’s time to show off the “boyfriend” blazer.

The blazer featured below could be found at Nordstrom’s and is ABS by Allen Schwartz. The blazer is priced @ $305.00.

The next blazer featured could also be found at Nordstrom’s and is by Necessary Objects.

I don’t think that one person could pick out the difference between the blazer above and below. However, there is a slight difference in price. The blazer below is priced @ $58.00.

Fashion seems to be rewinding back to the 80′s, and with the 80′s comes leggings. Leggings seem to be turning up every where, and in every color and pattern. I believe black is the classiest look, although it never hurts to have a little fun with patterns and color. If your mother didn’t save her leggings, then we have to go out and buy our own pair.

The leggings featured below can be found at Bloomingdales and are by Vince. They are priced @ $245.oo.

I appreciate every designer and am an avid fan of designer clothing. However, not all of us can always afford trendy items like those that I have featured above. In the end, it’s whatever gives you inspiration that matters. Fashion is how you express your self with the clothing that you wear not the price that you pay.
