I'm alive! And bright! by Kari

Wednesday, November 30, 2011
I'm alive!  I made it across the country in one piece!  I still cannot believe we're living in NYC.  It's been almost 2 months since quitting our jobs, selling most of our possessions, and driving across the country in pursuit of a dream.  That's why most people come to New York City, isn't it?  We're such cliches.  But, I am here and happy to report that we are finally getting settled into our new lives.  Fall in NYC is such a beautiful time of year.  Our neighborhood in Brooklyn has the prettiest tree lined streets filled with leaves of every color.  It's such a big change from L.A.  Seasons!  Who knew?  The weather has been pretty mild so I haven't had to layer up as much as I thought I would.  I wore this little outfit last week to church.  Elaine asked me if she thought my style would change when I moved to New York.  I definitely feel like I have picked up a couple pieces that are more utilitarian and completely essential but for the most part I still feel like me and that wearing more than one bright color in an outfit is completely acceptable despite the sea of all black outfits that are prevalent here.


I think it was the bright yellow leaves everywhere that inspired me to bust out this skirt this week.  I love this color and it looks so good when paired with neutrals, but, of course, I couldn't resist and added blue tights.  I do apologize for all the wrinkles but you gotta cut me some slack.  Who's going to iron all their things after they've just moved across the country?  Come on!  Pops of gold accessories to match the studs in my shoes bring the outfit together for me.


I'm wearing an H&M black and white blazer, black Gap button up shirt, yellow J.Crew skirt, blue tights (can't remember from where!), Delman studded flats (via Gilt warehouse sale), Timex leopard watch, gold House of Harlow necklace (Gilt), and Missoni for Target clutch.

P.S. We were walking Chloe when we snapped these pics so never mind the bright red leash in the first picture!

How to Style Your Hair in a French Twist by Kristina

Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Yep...that's me sporting my hair in it's most natural state of fuzziness. I never, ever, ever try this hairstyle on freshly washed hair...my hair is just too bouncy, so this hair style is reserved for a couple days after a shampoo when the ends are at their frizziest and there's just nothing else to do with it except pull it back (or wash it again), but who doesn't want to get one more day out of their product, huh?

Extra Long Ties Giveaway (CLOSED)

Tuesday, November 29, 2011
So I know you probably read the title and thought, "This does not pertain to me. IGNORE." And you're right. It doesn't -- unless you're a very tall man who reads a women's fashion blog...or you are a woman who has a tall man in her life. And then it totally pertains to you. I have a tall and skinny man. We have a doubly hard time finding clothes that fit him without making it look like I starve him. (I feed him! I swear!) Lucky for us (and maybe you?), there is an online store that sells extra long ties! Instead of you having to search all over the Internet for longer ties, they did all of that for you. They have a bajillion ties (don't quote me on that) all for under $20 each WITH free shipping. The free shipping should be enough to entice you!! With Christmas just around the corner (I haven't even started on my shopping yet!!!), this would make a great gift for that tall man in your life. Don't know one? I'll let you enter for my husband. (Just don't tell him. He doesn't read this anyway so I think we're good.)

Feel free to use the coupon code CLOTHEDMUCH5 for $5 off. That's $15 ties, ladies!!

Sequins in the RIGHT!

thrifted sequin sweater ($5), secondhand choker necklace ($5), maxi skirt made from a thrifted IKEA curtain ($3)

Okay, despite last week's sequin outfit mishap, THIS I loved wearing. It looks simple because it is. The colors are all in the same family:  cream, gold, dark green. There is pattern-mixing along with some sequin and bling. I think I was trying too hard last time. I feel more myself when it's simple. So I think this means I should resort to t-shirt and jeans for the rest of my life.

What To Wear This Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 23, 2011
I don't know about you but when I am creating an outfit, besides factoring in weather, the setting, and the people I'd encounter/interact with that day, I also factor in FOOD. Does that make me a pig? ..because I am. SO, for tomorrow you bet I'm busting out my Thanksgiving pants a la Joey. But, that wouldn't be very fashion-blogger of me. To keep me in check, I've compiled a few choice outfits and tips to help me get dressed tomorrow, and just maybe it will help you too if you're a pig like me.

No jeans. It's too restricting in the waistband area if you're going to eat five turkeys. But if that's not your goal, go for the skinny jeans -- the skinniest you can find, really.

Think leggings with an over-sized t-shirt or tunic and boots like Diana here.


Or consider loose pants with a loose shirt on top.


If you're going to wear a skirt, wear an A-line or full skirt. Belt it to show a defined waist!! Exaggerate it!


If your Thanksgiving dinner is more fancy, consider a sheath dress with no defined waist. Embrace the shapelessness! ..and then pile on the jewels.



After all that, I'll probably wear the leggings + oversized tee + boots combo. What will you guys be wearing tomorrow??




Oh.... and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

When sequins feel wrong..

thrifted sequin sweater ($5), vintage skirt ($5), JCPenney broach (free), Ros Hommerson oxfords ($26), vintage bag ($15)

This outfit looked good in my mind when I picked it out in the morning but as the day went on, I didn't like it! I don't know what my problem's been lately but on the days I get my pictures taken, I end up not liking my outfits and the days I let Chase sleep for 5 extra minutes, I like the outfit! I think this is why I took my pictures every day -- to hate all my outfits equally. I promise I have some good ones coming up. (I think. I actually don't remember.) No more of this Debbie Downer! My name's not even Debbie!

To Splurge or Not To Splurge by B

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Burberry scarf (graduation gift), J.Crew Outlet sweater

Hello! I'm B from the style blog With Love From Michigan. Being a new, part-time teacher, I can definitely relate to the need to look good but keep the price point manageable. One of the ways I do that is to only buy classic pieces from the nice stores that I know will last me more than one season (e.g., pencil skirts, dress pants, LBDs, shoes, etc.) and buy the trendier items that won't be in style for as long at cheaper stores such as Forever 21, Target, or thrift them if possible.


Here are some items that I consider splurge-worthy and would be willing to part with extra money for. I believe that every wardrobe needs the following:

I rely heavily on Fossil for watches, statement jewelry and leather bags. I find all of their products to be high quality and they have great customer service.

J.Crew is my go-to for a winter coat, statement scarf, and chambray shirt. Three years ago I purchased a winter coat at J.Crew and it still looks brand new. I'm very satisfied with the purchase! I also like J.Crew because if you show your student ID, they will give you 15% off.

Last, but not least, I usually buy my pencil skirts at Express because they often run deals on their office basics.

How do I determine if an item is worth it? I factor a few things into my decision-making process. The first is cost-per-wear. If I can come up with at least five different ways to wear the item when I'm standing in the store, using things I already own (That's the key!), then I consider it to be a worthwhile purchase. I also consider if the item is a trend that will soon go out of style. If that's the case, I will usually look for something similar at Target or Forever 21. All of the items pictured above are classic pieces that can easily be incorporated into any outfit and will never go out of style.

How about now?

This is one of those outfits where I got it "right" on the first try and I loved it all day. But now that I look back on it a week or two later I realize it's "eh." Not the best, not the worst but at least I felt good in it while I wore it! What I'd do differently next time is switch the jeans and scarf and maybe do my hair. Longer legs would be nice too while we're on that subject!!

Pretty Ways to Mix Patterns by Kristine

Friday, November 18, 2011
Hi there! My name is Kristine and I blog over at Kristine or Polly. I'm thrilled to be a contributor on Clothed Much! If you read my blog, you'll know that I am obsessed with mixing patterns. I love how funky and eclectic it can look! Here are a few guidelines I've come up with to mix patterns... but remember, just have fun with it!


1. Try incorporating subtle pops with accessories
IMG_5137

You don't have to wear two big crazy patterned pieces to make a statement. If you want an easy pattern-mixing challenge to start you off, try using patterned accessories. Above, I wore a simple black and white striped dress with a polka dot headband. Accessories are a really easy way to mix patterns, whether it's a headband, a scarf, or tights!

2. Create distance between prints
IMG_3147
If you want to play it safe with your pattern mixing, try distancing the patterned pieces from each other. In this outfit, I wore a printed floral scarf with polka dot tights. Clashing is minimized because of how far away they are from each other!

3. Wear contrasting patterns
IMG_3763
To make sure your ensemble isn't an offensive cluster of prints, there should be some sort of distinction between two adjacent patterns. One way to do that is to wear completely different patterns. Here, I've paired stripes with florals to create a quirky ensemble! 

4. Scale
IMG_5172
Another way to create separation between two adjacent prints is to play with the scale of the patterns. For example, in the outfit above, the pattern on my sweater is much larger than the the pattern on my skirt.

I hope these tips inspired you to have some more fun with your closet this winter! Good luck mixing patterns and have fun! 

Shop My Closet!

Friday, November 18, 2011
Like I mentioned in my birthday giveaway post, I did a closet clean-out and listed everything on Smashion. Everything is under $11! And that is only one item! I know money is tight for a lot of people so I tried to make it as cheap as possible. Most of the items are XS-M with a few accessories as well. Shop away! Let me know if you have any questions! I am also open to trades or swaps! But only if they're cool. If they're lame, move along.

How to Style Your Maxi for Cooler Weather by Kristina

Thursday, November 17, 2011
Maxi skirts are the iconic sort of pieces generally associated with warm, sunny days and breezy walks along the beach. I love pencil skirts as much as the next girl, but it seems a certain sort of luxury to have that extra fabric swishing around your ankles. I'm such a fan of long skirts, so of course, I'm always looking for ways to take my billowy chiffon skirts into cooler weather. This season's version of the maxi are hardly to be restricted to the bohemian looks with which we associate them. This year they are smart, chic, and utterly feminine. Here are just a few ways I'll be working my maxis this autumn over at my blog, Kristina J.

Downtown Edge


A maxi skirt is super girly, so pairing a boxy striped sweater on top is the perfect balance of tomboy and feminine. It looks completely pulled together without being at all fussy. Plus, the pattern play is beyond visually interesting.

Surplus Chic


Take your cues from outside the city limits and incorporate an army-inspired jacket into your look. The rustic elements of a military jacket will hardly seem out of place when thrown over a sequined tee and cinched with a glittery belt.

Weekend Wear


Yeah, you could just throw on a sweatshirt, but why would you, huh? Wearing a light-weight sweater under a cropped jacket will ensure you're on point whether running errands or pleasure shopping...and if the afternoon gets too warm, simply shed the jacket.

Working Girl


You're sure to stand out in a sea of corporate business suits when you pair your maxi with well-structured layering pieces. The end result is professional while unexpected colors and the smallest of skinny belts maintain your individual flare.

Lunch Date


A chambray shirt knotted at the waist is as easy-breezy as the wind blowing through the trees. Set if off with a utilitarian leather bag and you're good to go.

Maxi skirts can feel more dressy and formal than their knee-length counterparts. A great maxi skirt has a lot of personality, so one skirt in an eye-popping color and another constructed out of a multi-hued print will give you tons of mileage for fall, bringing their own dramatic impact to your wardrobe. When in doubt, dress them down with more casual pieces to ensure your look is modern and fun.

Shoes on the (Birthday) Brain...

Wednesday, November 16, 2011
I try not to post too many wishlist items because it just reminds me that I can't afford them. But it's my birthday today and my oyster is the world!!!! Ever since my trusty $8 thrifted brown boots died, there's been a void in my life (and closet). I've kept my eye out while thrifting to find another pair by miracle but no luck yet. Stupid warm L.A. weather! (JK. I love the weather here.)

With brown boots on the mind and it being my birthday and all, I've been doing some "window" shopping and found two comfortable, durable pairs that should last me a while. Both are +$200 so, unfortunately, only one can be an option... Even then it shouldn't be an option but we're just going to ignore that part. :)

First option is the Ugg Channing. I'm so glad Ugg has more options than their typical boots because although they are an eye-sore, they are pretty comf. I'm still wary about these boots because besides the fact that they are almost $300 (cringe), I'm not sure how their shoe widths are. I have pretty wide feet and some brands accommodate in their regular widths and others don't so it's always a guessing game.




The other option is the Tsubo Galvani. I LOVE Tsubo shoes. I have two pairs:  Kiho boots and Deba heels. They're super comf. They have a bit of an alien-foreign look to them that can be a bit off-putting sometimes so I was very surprised and happy when I saw these brown ankle boots. I can definitely get on board these. And they are $100 less than the Channing boots! $200!


Which boots are more your style?


Update:  I probably won't get them. :( Chase just checked our bank accounts. Eat to survive or shoes? Food or shoes.... I hate decisions!!!!!

Birthday Giveaway (CLOSED)

Wednesday, November 16, 2011
Today I turn 24. (Pause for birthday congratulations.) In honor of my day of birth, I wanted to give back in some way to the CM community. I did a recent closet clean-out and found this jacket hidden in the back. I haven't worn it in a while and I don't like knowing it's sitting there alone in the dark :(. So I want to give it to one of you! It's listed as a size small but it can easily fit a medium. If that is not your size, win it for someone you know! It's been lightly worn. They'll never know ;)...just don't tell them.. hahah


Florals and Stripes FTW

When I received this floral top, I knew I had to pair it with my striped skirt. Florals and stripes FTW!!! I still can't get enough of this combo. If you consider how little there is of floral-anything in my closet, it is kind of sad.. But stripes? OBSESSED!!! Do you lean more towards florals or stripes?

P.S. Does my skin look ashy to anybody else? I look like a zombie...

Spots and Dots by Joanna

Tuesday, November 15, 2011
Hi! I'm Joanna:  an actor, TV host, mom, and lover of all things fashion. Over at ModaMama, I share my daily forays into the world of clothes along with my misadventures in Mommyhood, acting, and the hilarity that is my life!

I love polka dots -- pretty much always have. But they're especially hot right now for fall. And though they can add whimsy and play to an outfit, they can also be daunting. The challenge is to keep them elegant enough and to not wind up looking like the next aspiring Minnie Mouse.

Small polka dots I find are the easiest to play with. Because it's a subtle pattern, you can do almost anything with it – mix it with other patterns, add it in accessories, dress it up or down. They're very elegant head-to-toe on a dress and really easy to to mix and match because of their simple geometric nature.


The small print is especially great for an office setting where you want to show your personality and individuality in a conservative environment. You may not want to play with anything bold or in-your-face and you want to be taken seriously. If your office is less formal or if you're trying to put together a more casual look, polka dots are great on another fall trend, the breezy, loose chiffon shirt. For cooler weather it can be layered over vests or cardigans. A nice chunky knit works really well too!


A place where polka dots hardly ever make an appearance is in evening wear. I like to stand out but not by baring too much or by shocking, so by wearing a whimsical pattern I set myself apart from the crowd in a simple and understated way. Polka dots are drastically underrated for formal and semi-formal affairs. You'll definitely stand out in a sea of LBDs with a fun polka dot pattern!


I also try to stick to a simple color palette – especially if I'm mixing patterns. When the outfit is composed of neutrals, it's easy to go bolder in terms of the polka dot size.


Next on my list is to mix polka dots with biker boots and a leather jacket – something very on trend for fall.

MAN. I look tired in these pictures. Besides that, I loved this outfit! Ping-pong-friendly AND stylin' (after I took my necklace off, of course). I got this down. This outfit is actually quite similar to this one...at least, the colors are very similar. Does that mean I get double brownie points? How about just brownies instead?

My JCPenney loot a year later and what I think

Thursday, November 10, 2011
Last summer I won $1,500 to JCPenney from College Fashion + $50 from Kansas Couture recently and I finally spent it all. I thought I'd show you all the things I spent it on and then list the rest of it to see how far I stretched it or didn't.

The clothes you've seen on the blog...



I spent some on work-out clothes and bras. I HATE bra shopping -- a necessary evil. But I did find one at JCP that I love right now. I bought two. That should cover me for another year, I think.


Then Chase and I had to be adults or something and get towels! and a doormat! and frying pans! Boo to responsibilities!


Besides all that, we bought Chase a pair of shoes that were coming apart after a week and a few pairs of jeans; we bought my brother new clothes when he got off his mission; sold some gift card money on eBay; bought presents for people... I think that's it.

So really I didn't buy much for myself like I wanted. Mostly because JCPenney doesn't cater to people my size AKA smaller than a size 4/6. ALL of their clothes were too big on me so when I did find something that fit, it was almost exciting, which is why I focused most of my credit on accessories and shoes. After all that, I'm still not a fan of JCPenney clothing. It's sub-par quality and they use cheap fabrics and materials that will either get stretched out or worn out after a few washes so it was probably a good thing most of their clothes didn't fit me. The quality of their accessories and shoes aren't that great either. (Remember my sob story about my nude platforms?) Most of my jewelry feel cheap and some of the stones have come off one of my necklaces that I had to glue back on. What I am happy with are my towels. They seem to be doing their job so far. And the frying pans seem to be pretty sturdy. I'm kind of excited to use them. I guess I'm an adult now.

Anyway, that's my two cents about JCPenney. Not to say I'm not grateful that I won both giveaways. Of course, I am! I love free stuff!!! It's just if I had real money, JCPenney would not be the first place I would think of to go shopping...for anything. One thing I regret is not buying a pair of sneakers. I actually put it off a couple times because sneaker shopping is one of the worst right next to bra-shopping and jean-shopping. K, now I'm stepping off my soapbox.

Mom Jeans?

Mink Pink blouse (c/o KODI Boutique), DownEast Basics undertee (gift), JCPenney necklace (free), thrifted and skinnied high-waist jeans ($8), Target clogs (gift), vintage bag ($15)

I've been wanting a pair of high-waist jeans since I realized they came back in style, which was like last week. I finally found a pair at the thrift store...and it was wide-legged! Double yay! Then I tried them on and realized it was only a couple inches too long for my shorty legs. Boo! It would've been fine if it were one inch or three inches longer but, no.... It was at that awkward length where you couldn't wear flats or heels without it dragging or looking too short. So I skinnied them...at 1 o'clock in the morning. And they are my new favorite skinnies...even if I'm not sure if it looks too mom-ish. What do you think? Are you onboard the high-waist jeans?

Modest Clothing Stores, you're getting warmer..

Wednesday, November 09, 2011
Warning:  This post is all MY opinion....and advanced apologies if my sarcasm is too great.

I have a prejudice when it comes to Utah's take on modest fashion:  over-the-top frills and ruffles, fabric flowers, tacky fabrics, gem-encrusted flared denim, beehive blonde hair, spider mascara, and the over-use of undertees. I'm determined that amidst this fashion faux pas epidemic there IS some fashion sense somewhere in Utah!!! With the upsurge of Mormon modest fashion bloggers, I'm going to assume you guys know at least some of us have a style unmediated by the Mormon capital and its residents. (Me.)

Despite what I consider a faux pas, Utah modest clothing stores (and their fashion) are on the rise. Some better than others. Since this is a modest fashion blog, I'm going to review and showcase some of the best modest clothes from these stores. Please note:  I'm not getting paid for this. I wish. My opinions are free and you can't set a price on that. (Yes, you can. Contact me for more info.)

The first store I want to review is modbod. Not a fan of the store name, not a fan of the site, not a fan of the pictures, not a fan of the models. Everything about it screams "catalog" and "Utah." ....except this Mandarin top. Maybe the little ounce of fashion in me has been dulled by the rest of the mediocre items so this top stuck out to me like a diamond in the rough. Perhaps it is the styling? (Love everything except the stilettos.) Either way, I applaud modbod for providing ONE good item. What do you think (about this product and my new mission)? Let's discuss.

Mandarin top, $32

Can I get a do-over?
