Feminine With An Edge

I'm currently in the process of editing down my wardrobe.  I read somewhere that most people only wear twenty percent of their clothes, eighty percent of the time...I know that this is probably true for me. As I sift through piles of unworn sweaters and stacks of shoe boxes, I'm keeping the modern, clean style of Vogue market editor, Jessica Sailer, in mind.  I've saved these images of her "5 looks, 1 girl" (my favorite feature) for several months. Jessica's streamlined use of accessories and classic American style is exactly where my head is at these days.  Masculine, chunky watches, signet rings and skinny jeans paired with monogram necklaces and bold, flirty blouses will all make the cut in my closet this spring...sometimes it just feels so good to pare down belongings...(almost as good as shopping).

Scroll to see more looks inspired by Jessica's style, here:

  2. It is so easy really to make a look a bit more feminine, with a great lipstick, a scarf, super earrings etc!

    Love Jessica's style!

  3. So agree, Sue. I have so many outfits I used to love hanging in my closet. Hanging. No need for them the way life is now. I'm gaining courage from your post. xx's

  4. Thats a great idea if only I didnt talk myself out of getting rid of everything!

  5. Fabulous! I love that thin bracelet in the first pic!

  6. So cute! As someone who needs to clean out her closet again (so much purging!) I really need this. And I love that watch. Oh my!

  7. Great post! I have to really go through my things and edit them down too. Thanks for the reminder. Have a wonderful day. -Al

  8. Love the layered necklace look.

  9. I have been editing my closet for the last 3 months and its true most of the things people have in their closets, they don't wear. I have either never worn it or it's rarely been worn.

  10. Love your blog, fashion and decoration all in one!
