Well over a month ago, the holiday event attire planning began. And it continues.

While this is a magical time of year, creating memorable ensembles for all your events can bring on unwanted stress. Enter: your wardrobe stylist.

Ditch the added pressure this year by hiring a professional. You'll sashay through the holiday season in high style.

I recently discovered Closed, an international denim-fashion brand with a fresh look at everyday life. Easy. Effortless. And exactly what I want to wear as we enter into fall weather.

was founded in 1978 in Italy and is currently based in Germany. The company is known for its harmonic mix of sportswear, denim, utility and fashion codes. It's one of those lines that, when you bring home your first piece, you can't wait to put it on. And then, you never want to take it off.

Visit your local boutique and ask for Closed. Be sure to check out the purple jeans and ecru puffer vest.


Closed is available at Our Place in Charlotte

There is so much that can be taken from our living spaces. Abstract or quite literal. And in keeping with my obsession of the dynamic duo — black and white — I couldn't resist showing an outfit inspiration.

You will notice the ease of these spaces. Major pieces placed in a casual way. The basic color combination is both inviting and intriguing.

Starting with this patchwork leather skirt, since this is the season of fabulous skirts, I let the leather lead the way. So much so, that I paired it with this 3.1 Phillip Lim wool and leather sweater, another staple for fall. And how beyond amazing are these Giuseppe Zanotti booties? Yum!

I top it off with three simple accessories — a calf hair crossbody bag, a bangle and geometric crystal stud earrings.

Simple luxe. Just like the rooms.

Oh Chanel.

You are yummy! And you are entirely responsible for the return of the skirt. Chic, sexy goodness — cuts, fabrics and every last detail. I want to spend every waking moment drenched in you. From head to toe.


Biker influences abound!

From pants to boots to jackets, I can barely stand waiting for fall.

I love a tough leather jacket. But in red, even more so! This quilted leather motorcycle jacket by Muubaa features two front zip pockets, leather tabs at each shoulder and a zip front closure. It's just as easy to pair with a chic sheath dress as it is jeans. Or, perhaps distressed denim shorts.

Hurry up, fall!
