I enjoy traveling with my family, it’s always a good time, but the bad part is the packing rests solely on my shoulders! This is not fun, especially when I have to pack for myself, husband (sometimes) and kids. One very handy tip I have discovered is how to pack your clothes in a wrinkle free way. Don’t fold them, which will crease and then wrinkle your clothes. You need to roll your items. Simply roll it from end to end so it is in a long tube shape, and then place in your bag. Remember to strap your clothes inside your bag to keep items in place. But if clothes are jostled a bit, the roll will protect it from any wrinkling. Genius right?

Flowy Button Front Blouse – Get the Look RightJanuary 15th, 2014
A loose and flowy button up is a fun option to have in your wardrobe, but how do you wear it so it compliments your figure? There a some key ways to ensure your look is spot-on when sporting a silky button front blouse:
- The perfect silky blouse is loose, not at all tight, so make sure that when you purchase one of these blouses it does not pull or hug you too tight.
- For a more professional look, tuck it in and pull it out a little bit so you have a subtle billow at the bottom. Choose a pencil skirt, ankle pants or straight leg trousers to pair with it. Since it is loose on top you want your bottoms to be tailored, not loose. Keeping the bottoms tighter will be prevent a voluminous look that is unflattering.
- For a casual vibe, do not tuck and add a shell or tank top underneath. Leave the top half of the shirts buttons open, showing the layer underneath. Wear with skinny jeans or straight leg jeans to keep the look flattering for your silhouette.
- Accessorize with layers of longer necklaces or a shorter necklace that fits under the collar. A structured bag will keep the look fresh!

We have been busy bees for the last month, prepping for the opening of our Cedar Rapids location. So much to do, so little time, but I think we have it “client ready” for our opening on Monday!
We are ready to do Colors, Body Type Analysis and Style Analysis, plus we have a great dressing room for in-office Closet Audits and for our Retainer Shopping clients. Retainer Shopping is a great service aimed at saving you time – we will buy your clothes – complete outfits for you to try on – all you do is show up at our office, try on the items, we review to decide what’s best and then you leave with your outfits! We do the returns! A no fuss way to shop!
