Drawers Too Tight for Tights?

Tailored Tuesday:


Kate Bosworth’s Closet ❤

Today, instead of using my Tailored Tuesday post to rave about my latest shoe obsession, I’m going to address an issue that every girl had dealt with sometime in her fashion-obsessed life: Too Many Clothes, Too Little Room.  My biggest difficulty in this area is managing my love for crazy tights!


Here’s a little background on my tights obsession (nylons, stockings, support tights, pantyhose…You choose).  When I was a sophomore in high school The CW came out with the hit new drama Gossip Girl (need I say more?) and of course my favorite character was Blair Waldorf.


I know that I’ve spent other posts raving about her marvelous style, ingenious scheming skills, and bittersweet attitude but never once have I focused in on my favorite part about her wardrobe – Her tights!  Being a high school girl in a “well-developed” neighborhood I instantly inherited a love for crazy tights paired with heels and high-waisted skirts.


Luckily, tights are not a staple that’s going to break the bank so by the end of the year I ended up with almost 30 pairs of tights in every hue, fabric, and texture!


Until recently, I simply dealt with the fact that they’re unmanageable from an organization perspective, and let them free-float around my drawer like a million crazy octopuses.  Let’s be real.  You can’t fold tights.  You can’t pull out one pair without 5 others coming along for the ride.  And every black pair looks the same in a dark drawer whether or not the lace is patterned or solid.  The above (and following) photo(s) are real – This chaos had to stop!


So while laying awake in bed the other night (pondering about completely random things) I came up with the exceptionally simple idea of placing each pair in a plastic baggie, labeling it with the color/style of the pair, and squeezing the air out to create space.   Boom – DONE!  After sifting through every pair in the drawer (and recognizing that I’m an adult now so I don’t need so many ridiculous pairs of tights) I limited myself to 10 essentials and let the organizing begin.




After being amazed by how much extra room I had in my drawer after bagging each pair, I decided to throw my belts in bags as well, then even had room for my clutches!  Perfect!




Do you have an organization hack that’s simple yet effective?  I would love to hear it!


Dear Diary: My Love for Wedges

Tailored Tuesday:


Dear Diary,

I understand that most all girls love shoes, but my case is different.  You see, I have a slight obsession with wedged heels and I don’t see this obsession ever ceasing.  They’re just so comfortable for the amazing lift and height they give me.  It’s unheard of that I can go all day in 5″ heels and never get a blister, pain, or twisted ankle.  In other words, this shoe design is a God sent.  And I’m not about to stop.

Love, Adrien

JustFab Wedge Front

When I came across the KIRA design during my weekly JustFab search I instantly fell in love.  Not only are these shoes wedged, but they also have a dual strap across the toe as well as around the ankle making them extra comfortable.  Do you know that feeling of your heel constantly sliding up and down?  Yup – That won’t happen with this well designed, full circle ankle strap.

Although I’m going crazy over the Mint color, this shoe also comes in Red, Black, and Multi-Colored.  The Red shoe would look amazing with a black and white patterned dress for a night out, the classic Black would look stunning with skinny jeans and loose fitting, bright colored blouse, and the Multi-Colored pair could not be stopped with a LBD.  But since this winter has been so long and dreary, I’m ready for some sexy pastel shoes to brighten up my closet 🙂

These canvas shoes also have a slight shimmer on the wedge giving the heel some dimension and style without being too gaudy.  I adore the little bit of fabric that covers the wedge too because it creates depth and adds more color.  The heel height is approximately 5.5″ and the wedge is a whopping 1.5″ (which is pretty standard for most of JustFab’s designs).  Also, so far everyone who has reviewed this shoe has given it 100%!


Something I love about JustFab’s website is that they also provide you with some celebrity inspiration while shoe browsing.  The Kira shoes were inspired by a pair worn by Eva Marcille who paired a pair of multi-colored wedges with a solid grey dress and looked phenomenal!


Do you have a shoe style that you just can’t get enough of?  Maybe stilettos or flats, peep toes or pointed, oxford or flip flops?

Wear Your Heart on Your…Back?!

Tailored Tuesday:


One style that I have been OBSESSED with the passed couple years are cut outs.  The dilemma, as with most of women’s clothing, is that you pay more money for less fabric.  But no worries, it’s worth it!


When I came across this Heart&Bow Dress on Love Culture I just had to share.  Now, you don’t have to know me well to know that there are few fashion trends I love more than bows, hearts, & pearls, and this dress contains 2 of these right off the bat (and it’s oh-so-easy to add a string of pearls, too).


The open heart cutout gives this mint colored dress a flirty edge, but the adorable (and removable) bow belt adds a sweet touch at the same time.  Being petite, I love the “skater dress” cut because I believe it looks great on everyone, and the textured knit fabric will be comfortable yet structured for long-wear days.

Pair this timeless dress with Rhinestone Ankle Strap Heels and a Large Pearl Necklace and you’re good to go!
