white lace ponchoI’m not really sure there is much to say about this poncho. It’s just so stinkin cute and it looks great with everything. Lovely with distressed denim, a pencil skirt, white pants, black pants, shorts, etc. I grabbed this off the sale rack at Macy’s, but for a similar poncho visit anthropologie.com. All sale items are an extra 20% off, so it’s a steal! Jeans are available at Macys.com.lace ponchowhite lacy poncho

Do you shop consignment stores?

Do you shop consignment stores?

I have to thank this frient for introducing me to an amazing consignment store here in Salt Lake. Before shopping with her, I hadn’t spent much time in consignment stores. I have never been opposed to buying second hand items, I just didn’t think that a consignment store would have much variety. Well, Name Droppers has certainly proven me wrong. They have two locations and an easy to navigate website (www.shopnamedroppers.com) with a wonderful assortment of clothing, shoes, and accessories. We found this moto vest there and paired it with some distressed denim jeans from Zara (click here). I know, this frient could make a paper bag look stylish, but wow, what a knock-out!

Are you really breaking up with J.Crew?

The article “J.Crew, We’ve Grown Apart” published in The Wall Street Journal on May 27, 2015 reports that J.Crew has recently let women down. It maintains that J.Crew has been a disappointment to women this year due to its  poor fabric quality, inconsistent sizing and bewildering styling. The article notes that many former J.Crew devotees are fairly upset by the changes made to this much loved brand. Read more

Tuesday Toss or Treasure

Tuesday Toss or Treasure

toss or treasure

A frient of mine found this sweater in the back of her closet and was wondering if she should toss it, or treasure it. She bought it more than 5 years ago at Anthropologie and was wondering if it looked dated.

Does this happen to you? Do you have something in your closet that you adored years ago, but are now having a hard time looking at objectively? Well, send me a photo! My email is ckgstyling@yahoo.com. I’ll advise as to whether it’s a “toss” or “treasure”. If it’s a treasure, I’ll also give you ideas on how to style it. If it’s a toss, I promise I’ll be kind!

A Cargo Jacket that Drapes Beautifully

A Cargo Jacket that Drapes Beautifully

Somehow this has become spring jacket week. I guess that’s appropriate because it is spring, and I’ve been wearing jackets. I like this one from Loft because it’s pretty light, but still keeps you warm on windy spring days. The fabric isn’t too stiff. Hmmm, that’s probably why Loft named it the Drapey Cargo Jacket.

Honestly, there is no good reason for me to be sitting in the flower bed. Except, those are spring flowers and I am wearing a spring jacket.
