This Week’s Most Coveted

Pantone has officially dubbed the sultry Marsala as the color of the year.  The red wine, burgundy-esque color evokes images of its earthy roots, while exuding a refined class and sophistication.  It blends well with muted tones, as well as bold and light neutrals, as it is a universally flattering color for fashion, beauty, and interiors.  The color is also appealing to men and women alike.  The color is both dramatic and grounding at the same time.  Check out the inspiration board for Pantone’s favorite color of 2015.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: DSquared2

Due to the ridiculous rather high number of LBD’s & LBH’s (Little Black Heels) in my closet(s), I started to get picky when adding any more of them to my wardrobe.  They have to really tickle my fancy, per se, or, sadly, they’ll just be taking up more coveted closet space.

(Side Note: Since I moved into a new apartment earlier this summer, I had to go from two walk-in closets to a tiny little one.  Needless to say, it’s been tough, but a learning experience in minimalism…  I’ve also taken to decorating my apartment with shoes as art to make up for storage (i.e. shoes intertwined with my books, in my living room, laundry room, etc.)…)

Take, for example, these beauties from DSquared2’s Fall-Winter 2015-16 collection.  They have just enough glitz and glam to make them stand out, and simply exude sex appeal.  I love how the fringe, metal zippers, and chains give them a rock’n’roll vibe, while the all-black color keeps the sandals from looking overdone.

Wear ’em with cuffed blue denim, or with a structured leather skirt and chiffon blouse for a sexy, edgy look.

How To Make The Most Out Of Your Closet Space

Creative Ways to Maximize the Space in Your Closet

Trends & Tribulations

Storage space is a hot commodity in most homes. That being said, even the smallest closet space can hold a lot if it is planned out well. Let’s look at some ways to get the most out of your closet space.

Straight and Narrow

Walk-in closets aren’t the only places for great storage and organization. A space saving reach in closet like this one can have just as much function when planned out properly. The drawers and shelving here really maximize the storage and the bright lighting is essential to keep things visible, even in the corners.

What’s Trending: Black & White

Black and white are my two favorite colors (besides pink…).  Why?  Because black encompasses all colors, and is a classic color that will never become outdated or be last season.  And white, because all colors are created from it, and, similarly, it will never go out of style.  I especially love how the combination works in clothing and interiors, and can be blended seamlessly and interchanged with any other hue to create an ultra chic look.
