How to hang up your clothes.

As promised, here are a few ways to hang your clothes up the right & wrong way….
Because sometimes going the extra mile with taking care of your clothes, will benefit you in the long run….

image

RIGHT WAY: you want your pants to lay as flat as possible against the hanger, this simple step causes less wrinkles which causes less ironing. Woohoo!

image

WRONG WAY: Hanging up your pants this way, will in fact cause wrinkles. Plus, it will take up much needed closet space…

image

RIGHT WAY: Folding your sweaters this way, where you fold your sweater in half lengthwise and then with fold it over the hanger. This will decrease the amount of wrinkles and also it help with the shoulders in the sweater not stretch out.

image

WRONG WAY: shoulders have been compromised… They do stretch when you just hang them like you do a shirt. (But the great thing is, they usually bounce back when washed.) So make sure to fold your sweaters instead.

image

RIGHT WAY: I usually button the first button to make sure the collar is standing up. Probably should button the whole placket, but I don’t.

image

RIGHT WAY: These hangers are perfect for hanging up your skirts and culottes. It decreases wrinkles, just by hanging it up by the waist band. Plus, it’s great on not taking up too much space.

image

RIGHT WAY: These velvet hangers are perfect for boatneck, v-neck, u-neck and t-shirts in general. Keeps them nicely in place.

So there you have it, a few tips and how to’s to get you closet in tip top shape!

Just hangin’ out…

Let’s talk about hangers, shall we?!
I bet most of you use the wire hangers you get free from the dry cleaners right? I pretty much despise that style of hanger as it misshapens my knits, they get bent out of shape easily, and if you step on the hook, it’s worse than stepping on a lego. Ouch. But there are so many hangers out there to purchase and use, you may be like, “Um, how should I even choose?” “How do I know what’s a good hanger to use?!”, Let tell you I’ve used them all, and I can totally tell you which ones are worth it and those that just need to be thrown out with the garbage…

Let’s go through the plethora of hangers… At least the ones that are pictured. (Left to Right)

Velvet Huggable Hangers: These are actually my favorite. As they are velvety, almost every material stays put when hung, they are thin, so you can pile in a lot of hangers in a tight space. Drawback would be, that they break easily… If stepped on or loaded down with clothing.

Wire Hangers. As I said before, this are crappy hangers. They’re not very reliable in terms of keeping your closet organized and neat. Nor are they great for using for hanging sweaters or even t-shirts. But they are extremely cheap.

Padded Hangers. These are great for display and lingerie. For much else, not really. They’re impractical for my closet as it would take up too much precious space. Plus, clothes just slip off easily. Not cool!

Plastic Hangers With Foam Sleeve. These are OK. They are still pretty thick for your closet, but they’re great for hanging up dresses and strappy items such as; camisoles, tanks, spegetti straps, etc. once you take off the foam sleeve. And they are durable, so that’s fantastic.

Plastic Hangers. These are great for hanging up pants. They’re super great for being neat/organized in your closet, and they bring extra fun color. Plus, these are pretty cheap, so that’s a bonus. And pretty durable.

Metal Utility Hangers. These are great and super duper durable! But again, not very practical, as clothing with slip off easily. But for looks, this get an A+ from me. I love how utilitarian it looks. I will use these for display any day! But, I will say these are a bit pricey…

Rubber Coated Hangers. These are okay. They do hold tops and blouses quite well, they do slip off occasionally. But, for taking up space, these are thin enough. And the durability is pretty great too!

I’m thinking tomorrow I’ll show you how to hang up your clothes. As it will benefit your clothes just as much as it will benefit you!
Hope you enjoyed, thanks for reading!

A slimming OOTD

image

TEE | SWEATER; SIMILAR | JEANS | SHOES; SIMILAR | BAG | NECKLACES: HERE: SIMILAR & HERE
Can we just say that an upper angle is sooooo slimming! Ugh! Love it! Not to mention, this outfit itself is slimming.

Black skinny jeans, are probably one of the most versatile items you can own in your wardrobe. I usually have 2-3 pair in my closet. Because, I can pair them with anything! And because I can dress them up or I can dress them down.

I’m all about tees. And this tee is a slim fitting tee, which shows off more curves than I usually do. But buy some tees that skim your body, not so tight that, you look like you’re wearing a sausage casing. Not cool! Both Madewell & J.crew have amazing tees…and soft too!

Why this outfit works so well, is because everything flows nicely. It may not have to match perfectly. But it does need to flow well together. For instance, my shoes + cami goes well with my sweater and tee. And my jeans are a neutral and acts as an anchor to my outfit. You csn totally wear color, bit you have to be strategic. You can’t wear every color of the rainbow in one outfit(not talking about dresses, mostly separates) an expect it to look good. You’ll be a walking rainbow. But if you use neutrals to help, then you’re getting somewhere. We’ll get to that in another post!

Midi length

SKIRT; Similar | Shirt | Shoes | Sunnies

I love this outfit. I saw it on Pinterest, and I can’t get it out of my head. I want it in my closet, like yesterday… And I don’t even wear skirts that often! I just love the length, awww tea length. Given my size and frame, I feel as if this would flatter me well.

Also, the vertical stripes in the shirt help lengthen as do the pointed toe pumps. Anything that makes you appear taller is a good things!

You do see some ripples across where her front (hip to hip) and granted the skirt could be a hair bit looser. But only about half an inch. But this fit doesn’t make me cringe as do some where it’s obviously stretching across, pulling at the seams and it was terribly hard to get into. Those skirts are just terrible to look at when others wear them! 

I really think this outfit will work on curvy girls, just as well as stick straight girls. It’s just the proportions you need to worry about, that length won’t work on a 5’4″ woman, but 6″-9″ shorter would. Never forget tge power of a pencil skirt!

A pivotal pair of jeans

Oldnavy rockstar black skinny jeans one of my favorites…

pivotal 
piv·ot·al  (pĭv′ə-tl)
adj.
1. Of, relating to, or serving as a pivot.
* 2. Being of vital or central importance; crucial: a decision that was pivotal to our success.

It is pivotal to have black skinny jeans or pants in one’s closet. A key piece, much like a white V-neck tee.

I know that that is one heck of a statement. But it’s all the more true. It’s a true blue statement… Well, in this case it’s black.

Let me tell you why it’s so important to own one or several pair of black skinnies.
• Black skinnies can define one’s physique. • It can make one’s legs appear waaay longer than any denim could do. • It can make you look and feel your thinnest. • Cut the right way, and the length just right can make you feel like a million bucks. • You can dress them up or down, just by the clothes & accessories you pair with them. • And the more faded they become, the more they become well loved jeans! • you can pair so much with black denim. • black skinnies look great on almost any body shape. • many places have black skinnies to purchase.

Here are few ways I’ve styled black denim, as you can see, I really like to wear neutrals…

So, if you’re debating on whether or not to purchase a pair of black skinnies, let me answer for you, YES A THOUSAND TIMES YES! You need them in your life!

3 outfit ideas for She is…

She is fearfully and wonderfully made. She is without spot or blemish. She is far more precious than diamonds or rubies.

I strive to be all of those things. Not to mention she is strong, courageous, fierce, loyal, humorous, enticing, lovely and beautiful.

She is beautiful. In this day and age beauty has so many connotations. Positive + Negative views on what beauty is. Outward + inward expressions of what beauty is. Matters of the heart vs only skin deep forms of beauty. I wish I could tell every woman how beautiful she really is. That smile tells a story. And she speaks what is embedded in her heart.

Have you heard of She Is clothing?
I love this company. This is the epitome of what ever beautiful + strong woman is. And she should wear that badge proudly.

I was so kindly sent a couple items from their range and I love both. The message and the quality. You know I’m a stickler about how well something’s made. And their tees are so super soft. It’s like wearing a warm hug.

I paired this shirt 3 ways to show you just how versital a graphic tee actually can be.
{In case you’re wondering Elle est forte means She is Strong}

image

1st look: I’m all about a blazer, boyfriend jeans, heels and a cool graphic tee with some awesome jewelry to go out in. Whether your going out on a date or a GNO. You’ll be covered!

image

2nd look: To rock the message at the gym when you’re getting your strong on is the perfect time to remind yourself that strong is beautiful. Grab your colorful workout pants, your sneakers and your graphic tee and just see how leg day treats you!

image

3rd look: Last but definitely not least, wear this to the farmers market, to meet clients or to a concert in the park… Wherever you choose to wear it, just know that you can never go wrong with a midi skirt, field jacket, ankle boots, bucket bag and a floral scarf to welcome the graphic tee into the mix!

With these suggestions, you can rock any occasion with a graphic tee. Especially one from She Is Clothing! You need this company in your life!
