As a fashion blogger and marketing manager in Austin, Texas, my top fashion tip for 2015…Do you! Sure, winter whites, chunky knits and fabulous capes are “in,” but you won’t be able to pull off any of those looks without inner confidence and your own personal touches.
As you’ll see in my blog, I mix affordable outfits with luxurious pieces – then top it all off with a signature piece or two.
Trends come and go, but your style is original and should be seen in all that you do, especially your great #OOTY (Outfits of the Year ;)!

It is all about the layers baby!
Take your point of destination into consideration when you’re dressing. The outfit has to be right for the occasion. So when walking in the city layers adds to your overall look. It gives you depth and flow. In winter we can get extremely cold but this does not mean to get sloppy when we are choosing to stay warm.
Fashion needs to be applied in layers so that your over look is well thought out and well put together. Every item has to be coordinated. The jacket, bag sunglasses, shoes, and of course the hair! It all has to tell a story.
Look at this picture. Now you are in the know.

A simple yet significant style is always the way to go. Hoo-Kong jewelry adds that significant touch to your ensemble. I love an all black outfit with a signature piece of Hoo-Kong jewelry.
1. Keep it simple (Don’t over-think your outfit)
2. An all black look is ALWAYS in style.
3. Compliment your outfit with a bold statement piece.
4. Most importantly wear what makes YOU feel and look good…simple.

2015 The Year of Being Fearless!
Forget about Orange being the New Black!!! In 2015, Cobalt Blue is the New Black. From winter to summer cobalt blue will work in every season. Because of its brighter shades of cool hues this color will work with all ethnicities light to brown shades.
Dare to be different this year!!!! Make it your business to set a trend this year, not just following the ones given to you.

You may have cheated on your new year’s resolutions by now but one resolution you should definitely keep is whipping your closet into shape.
Get Organized – Sort through your tops, bottoms, and accessories. Group them together. You could even color code and sort pieces by type; meaning all short-sleeved tops together, denim together and so on. If that’s much too OCD for you, start gradually and at least sort like-minded pieces together. That’s a sensible way to see what you have and it makes getting dressed in the morning simpler and less stressful.
Hang it Up- Purge and toss the wire dry cleaner hangers and upgrade to sturdier ones that match in style and color. Hang your heavier pieces like cardigans, blazers and sweaters on strong hangers like wood or velvet. Hang your trousers on grip clip ones so they hang without the risk of the permanent crease.
Since I’m a Maxxinista, I tend to shop T.J. Maxx for quick organization ideas and reasonably priced bundled hangers. Other shops like The Container Store, Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond have wonderful organization and storage solutions too!
