by Renae Virata | So if you hadn’t read my previous post, I am on a “shopping my closet” kick! I realize that there are outfits just WAITING to be made that I have yet to discover. No more staring at my closet with “nothing to wear”! I just wore this summer semi-formal to a boho-chic bar on a VERY chilly and VERY windy night with some great success. See how I breathed new three-season, three-occasion life into this old-wedding-dress oldie but goodie!

by Renae Virata | In a desperate effort to keep myself from overshopping after the holidays (I just love giving gifts!), I decided that it was time to do a different kind of shopping…in my own closet! How painful is it to stare at a closet (or two) full of clothes and feel like you have “nothing to wear”? Sooo frustrating. So I’ve put together some looks that are great for transitioning from winter to spring with just a few layer adjustments here and there that I hope will inspire you to do the same. Check out my first two looks from one piece! (And a great way to practice planning for a versatile trip wardrobe!)
by Renae Virata | I have a very fashionable friend from Kentucky who inspired this post with her forward-thinking selection of a very chic kimono that she found in LA last summer. No matter where you go this summer, snatch one up for probably one of the most versatile spring/summer pieces in your wardrobe this year!
by Renae Virata | I don’t know about you, but just about my least favorite part about packing is being unprepared or overpacking.

The answer: Trout Rainwear!

Here’s a fun way to transition between winter and spring: layered scarves. Mixing textures, colors, and weights is an effortless way to up your scarf look a notch for easy, casual chic.
One of the easiest ways that I have found to update any look is a fabulous belt! The variety of colors, widths, textures, even closures can do take a simple look from work to happy to night in a flash. Below are some picks to help get your fall belt collection started. All belts are from Linea Pelle who has some of the most unique belt selections online! Read the rest of this entry »
American Apparel has done it again! The purveyor of multi-use style has a fabulous cotton/spandex skirt that can bring tons of mileage to any trip or everyday wardrobe. I was lucky to be able to snag one from American Apparel to try out. At just $36 and in 20 delicious colors, it is probably one of the best additions to your wardrobe this season.
I was fortunate to find Ellie at the Indianapolis International Airport when I landed at midnight from Phoenix. For such a late night, she was super cute in her totally together travel get-up. Read the rest of this entry »

Samantha Jones (Sex and the City) is on the hunt to prove that she is right, that Richard is cheating on her. Like every good woman on a secret mission she does it with style, wearing a beautiful trench coat and a Raquel Welch wig. Girls you know what episode I am talking about. The point of this is not about the cheating or the wig, which was adorable, but the coat. The cinematic, must have, perfect for any season essential to every woman’s wardrobe: the trench coat.
