Wardrobe Utilization

'Merry Christmas' By Andrea Olivo For Vanity Fair Italia December 27,...



The holidays can be hard on everyone… I find them especially challenging when all I want to do is spend time and money on gifts for myself… 



…And while my mother practices the motto every once in a while, “Everyone deserves to give a gift to themselves” 
I excessively exercised this way of thinking and ran with it

Meanwhile, sales and deals  can be tempting especially with email promotions. 

Purchasing  a few items can help 
update your wardrobe, 
reduce your guilt, 
increase your savings, 
and still make you want to spin around in that skater skirt as if you were donning a brand new look from head to toe.

The wardrobe basics and foundations come into play, through accessorizing a look can be changed so drastically your co-workers may not even notice if you come in wearing the same piece twice in one week…
