5 Easy Updates You Need In Your Wardrobe RN

via Reitmans on Instagram

Originally posted in The Fashion Scoop

The mid-Feb struggle is real. Everyone is going on vacay, the weather is all over the map and you are so, SO sick of wearing snowboots every day. Your feet are desperate for a pedi but what's the point? Unless you're lucky enough to be headed somewhere tropical, your toes won't see the sunlight for another few months anyway. So what's one to do? Why, shop, of course!

Clear out your closet of anything that doesn't fit, doesn't flatter and doesn't make you feel amazeballs. It's the Family Day long weekend so you have an extra day to do some early spring cleaning. Okay, done? Now, it's time for a few updates. Here are 5 easy ways to upgrade your wardrobe right now...

SEEING STARS | 39 Reasons We Want Stars on Everything RN

Day or night, they are everywhere. Stars. Stars on errthang. Turn on Netflix and it's all about the Gilmore Girls and Stars Hollow. Apple Music? We get it The Weeknd: you're a starboy, starboy. Before I launch into this post, let me just remind you of the ridiculous lyrics to Starboy:

I'm tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
Milli point two just to hurt you, ah
All red Lamb’ just to tease you, ah
None of these toys on lease too, ah
Made your whole year in a week too, yah
Main b*$%@ out your league too, ah
Side b*$%@  out of your league too, ah

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby

I don't get it. Just me? Why is his girlfriend cleaning a piano with her face? Does anybody else get these lyrics? Like, love you The Weeknd but.... Le Petit Prince is a legit, OG starboy. I guess Chris Hadfield could call himself a starboy if he really wanted to. Like I said, I don't understand what makes the Weeknd a starboy or why he'd ever want anyone to call him one.

Back to stars, though: I'm obsessed.  From Valentino and Alexander McQueen's starry fall frocks, to the street, where every fashion girl is currently going galactic, stars make everything look so much cooler. Whether you go dainty with a sweet silver star charm necklace or dare to rock stars all over with a metallic starry dress, forego every other print this season and reach for the stars. I don't know about you but I can't get enough. 

I've rounded up 39 starry finds I'm loving right now, perfect for adding a bit of celestial charm to your wardrobe this winter. Happy shopping!

FÊTE SET | Our Holiday Party Fashion Edit

Here's the thing about mid-November: we know what's about to hit us. We know that before too long (if we're lucky), our calendars will start to overflow (if they haven't already). We know that between coordinating family and friends and co-workers, managing recitals and get-togethers and dinners, and somehow fitting the joy of the season in there somewhere, the next month is guaranteed to be cray.  

While flying by the seat of one's snowpants is highly encouraged this time of year, a wardrobe that's ready to party will stylishly set you up for whatever invites might come your way. Pick up a proper topper now and that Baileys and Sleigh Ride soirée will be one for the books. You can't control what Betty in accounting does on the dance floor, but a perfect party dress will guarantee you Best Dressed at your corporate Christmas party. Sequined pants will go swimmingly with your Ugly Christmas Sweater while festive red kicks will look all kinds of lovely at your family Christmas dinner. 

And, should you prefer to decline the invites and opt instead for a shopping party for one, this list should come in handy, too. After all, party invite or not, who doesn't need a sparkly sequin box clutch, amirite?

WHAT'S GOOD | Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo

When Carine Roitfeld tells you what to wear, you listen. The former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris and world-renowned style-setter has perfected 'I Don't Give AF' with her just-rolled-out-of-my-boudoir hair, her I-didn't-bother-taking-my-makeup-off-last-night smoky eyes and a parade of neutral street style looks that makes women half her age constantly question their own coolness.  

Roitfeld was inspired by her own wardrobe (naturellement) to create her latest collection for Uniqlo. On-trend fur bombers, as well as updated classics, like tweed blazers, wool and shearling coats, textured pencil skirts and merino sweaters mash up in a capsule that would make a killer wardrobe for any wannabe Parisienne. And if you don't like it, you guessed it: she does not give AF. 

The collection hits Uniqlo stores today.

SOLE MATES | These 50 Fall Shoes Are Goals

Speaking of goals...via Stuart Weitzman

Originally posted in The CLOSET

Summer was so amazing, so beautiful, so fun - just SO. But while I loved every minute of the ice cream and the excess, my body now has to deal with the fall-out from all that fun. Trying on jeans the other day, I was reminded of exactly how much fun was had. Sigh. 

As I slowly work my way back to fighting form, all the while trying to embrace my summer curves, trying to figure out how to keep some and not others (too much to ask?), I always find comfort in that one place where things always fit, where size doesn't matter, where I can be lifted up (literally), where I can stand taller (see where I'm going with this?), the place that understands my soul (and my soles): the shoe aisle. Thank goodness for shoes. Like Evan and Carly, we just get each other. We accept one another as we are. I know that if I invest in them, my shoes will always give back. And I know that once I find the one (okay, ones), I can stop looking. Well, at least until I see another pair that catches my eye. Luckily shoes have no feelings. It's a beautiful thing.

While I love to score good deals, I've learned over the years that good shoes are always worth it, even if you have to pay full price. I'd rather invest in one really amazing pair of boots than pick up 2 average pairs that will fall apart by next season. Okay fine,  2 really amazing pairs of boots instead of 4 average pairs. I mean, you can't expect me to pick just one, with pink block heel ankle boots to maje merlot midi boots to over-the-knee stunners vying for my affection. And don't even get me started on the flats - do we do the grey Puma Fierce kicks or the platform loafers? I can't even. For now, let's just stare at these 50 beautiful pairs and dream a little. Zero guilt. No regrets. Deal?
