It is the first Monday in May. Otherwise known as the Met Gala. One of the few days of the year that the Met Museum is closed to the public, in order to host the Met Gala fundraiser for the museum’s Costume Institute. The Costume Institute is critical for preserving and celebrating the history of fashion.
There has always been a debate of whether fashion should be considered art, and often fashion is not included in art museums. This started to change in 2011 when the Met hosted the exhibit Savage Beauty which celebrated the work of the late Alexander McQueen. I had the privilege of attending the exhibit, and it was one of my most inspired days as a designer. McQueen was a true artist. His clothing told stories in the most stunning fashion.
Warm weather is finally here, and it’s time to pull out your best spring looks. If you need a dose of inspiration to pull together outfits, look no further! Here are 6 chic outfits that will have you looking on trend this spring.
My biggest style secret is that I scrub my favorite brands’ clearance sections looking for the best deals. It takes some work, but I think it’s pretty fun. Most of the clothes that I buy are 70% of retail (or more). Here is today’s best of sale round up– shop soon while it’s still available!
Last month, I re-subscribed to the Rent the Runway monthly update. Our Minnesota winter has gone on far too long, and I’ve exhausted my winter wardrobe. Instead of investing in more sweaters and jackets, I thought it would be cheaper (and more fun) to get back on Rent the Runway.
As I reviewed before, I’m torn between really liking the subscription but also just wanting to buy my own clothes. I have so many summer skirts and dresses, so I will probably stop once the weather gets warm enough to wear them. For now, it’s nice to have access to more cold-weather options!
Although I love to shop, I always try to be frugal with my money and how I spend it. I almost never pay full price for shoes or clothing, and most of my wardrobe is bought at 75% off or more from retail price! One of my top secrets is to make the most of loyalty programs—even at places you shop a few times a year. Here are some of my favorite loyalty programs to score a deal:
If you feel like you’re one of those people who will never be “stylish”, there is hope! A lot of times it’s not the clothes that you have, but the unique way that you wear them that makes your stylish look. Here are 6 tips to pulling together an outfit that will make you feel like a style pro.
If you struggle with style, stick to the basics. Dark skinny jeans, button up blouses, simple cozy sweaters, and classic cut dresses won’t go out of style, and are the easiest way to look polished every day. Start with basics and add pops through statement shoes, jewelry, or a bold lip color.
