You can get all the trendy items from my wishlist at Rosegal.com (website with free shipping worldwide)
I simply love what is happening in fashion this fall and winter! I don’t know if this is just my point of view but I feel lots of confidence and much more extravagance in the latest trends. The trendy pieces are chic and perfectly wearable at the same time. My closet basics for the cold season are mostly neutrals so I just add a pop of new trendy colors to them and new combinations are born. You might wonder if it’s worth investing in trends. Well, my advice of a fashionista and personal stylist who loves experimenting and combining classics with some hot stuff is: You don’t need to spend too much for fast fashion. I spotted some great deals and I am sharing them in my wishlist. (more…)
To prepare your closet for another season might be an uneasy task sometimes, especially if you operate with a limited space, like me. I have both a small closet and a small space for storage. As a personal fashion stylist, I do closet cleanout service and have already seen a lot of closets, most of them really big – and yes, by ‘big’ I mean the special closet rooms full of clothes and fashion accessories which a lot of girls dream of, not actually realizing that the more you have, the less organized it gets. Having a big closet = more options but also more work! The more pieces you own, the lower ability to memorize all of them you have. So the chance to find something in a huge amount of items and to combine an outfit lowers.náročné, ale i stresující.

If you invest time in your closet, it can work very well for you and the more time you literally spend in it, the higher chance you have to master dressing perfectly within seconds. What do I mean with ‘spending time in your closet’? A regular closet cleanout – before and after every spring – summer season, minimally!
Now, with spring in its bloom, it is necessary to sort the winter and summer stuff. No way I am saying that you are supposed to divide your closet into a summer and winter part! The magic is in mixing fabrics and you would miss that cashmere sweater during your night summer walks, as well as you would miss the chiffon blouse showing its collar, sleeves and bottom under your sweaters in winter.
What I am definitely sorting out from my winter stuff is the following: winter coats and jackets, high boots with fur inside, fur coats, wool accessories such as gloves and caps, knit turtleneck sweaters, nordic pattern clothing, winter sports clothes and equipment… Well, it suddenly has piled up!!!

Where am I going to store the winter stuff now after I’ve bought some pretty new spring clothing and shoes? Need some closet solution for small spaces! I am googling some storage closet ideas or tips on how to make an extra space in a small room. And I have found MakeSpace storage experts – a service which picks up your stuff and stores it for you. When you need it again, they simply bring it back to you. Depends on how much stuff you want to store, you pay a montly rent. MakeSpace is in the process of opening new locations, be on the lookout for MakeSpace coming to your area!
One of the investments that is really worth is a cashmere sweater. However, there might not be much to choose from in the nearest chain stores, I am afraid. Secondly, quality might differ plus you know what terrible things customers do with clothes when taking it off a rag or just trying on with make-up on etc. And you probably want this soft new purchase to be perfect. I suggest relying on quality brands. Depends what you can afford, from 100% cashmere to wool/cashmere combination. Here is my selection of soft fleecy cuddling sweaters and scarves:
I would like to share a great experience with you. It is a huge closet cleanout, a kind of styling service, I provided to my friend client Eve during the Easter holidays. This particular closet cleanout experience was comparable to a marathon since we started on Friday and finished by Sunday facing Easter Monday fashion editorial shooting for Chic Cocktail!
However, back to the closet cleanout… in the following pictures you can see the hundreds of clothes we were getting through and the piles of items in trash bags we sorted out during the procedure. We had a great fun though and I would like to send many thanks to my dear Eva for having me as her personal stylist.
