I have a closet jam packed full of clothes and nothing to wear -- how many times does this scenario play out in your boudoir?  I call this Monday Morning madness: (and it can happen any time of the week) frantically trying on an assortment of items only to see them end up on the floor.  Fact: we wear about 20% of our wardrobe, 80% of the time.  

Take heart my lovelies, for Today's Style tip I am featuring the timeless Wrap Dress from Croix, for $139.00   Made famous in the 1970's by Diane von Furstenburg, this piece is the essential wardrobe basic every woman should own.  Not only will it make you feel amazing, it flatters every body type. Yes!  Did I mention it's washable & packable?

Named after its amazing owner, the 'Miya' knit jersey wrap dress is designed and hand made by a team of seamstresses in their studio right above their shop!   There are many Eco - Fashion forward items to feast your eyes upon in this sunny, yellow stripped interior.   Including the patent leather skinny belts from Lodis, for $58.00 - paired together with tall boots, a pendant necklace and you have a great day time look. Add sparkled earrings, and wedge heeled or platform pumps, et viola: a dynamic evening ensemble. 

Helping you get dressed beautifully, quickly and locally is my goal.  Do you have a wardrobe basic you would like to share?  We wanna know!

I love that second dress and belt. Do you do wardrobe consulting? It would be great to have your professional help on a shopping trip!
