I think most of my readers know how much I like to draw. I’ve been sketching girls in cute clothes since I was a child, and now I do it for a living. (Well, I design dolls. It’s close.) I want use more of my drawings here on The Style Confessions and I’ve been thinking about how to incorporate my fashion illustrations in a fun and unique way. My husband came up with the idea to have you, my readers, ask me style questions. Then my girlfriend Colleen suggested I do drawings to answer the questions. Voila! STYLE SKETCHES™ came to be.

I was planning a long post for today but I seem to having issues with tendonitis. A new keyboard is pending and will hopefully help the problem but in the meantime I thought I’d share a couple of things. First, I think I’ve found my summer pedicure color of choice.This bright coral color is called Club Havana and it’s by Wet n Wild. The stuff is cheap and tenacious. I love it!
Also in the post is a Pinterest challenge where you can win some new hair products. Next, people are always sending me infographics to share. Normally I don’t, but this one was really cute. Have a great weekend everyone! Continue Reading →
Window shopping is one of my favorite past times. Sometimes I just want to get out and be inspired, so I take a stroll through the local mall and gaze at the window displays. The spring trends for 2013 seemed boring when I saw them in the fashion shows and magazines, but I’m enamored of the new looks now that I see in store windows. The minimalism that walked down the runway has been transformed into something fun with bright colors. Meanwhile, classic navy stripes bring some seriousness to all the joyful prints and hot colors.

Although most of the time I only wear a simple gold wedding band I love looking at rings and ring designs. So many interesting details on such a small space! I’m especially enamored of colored stones, but like most women there’s a soft spot in my heart for diamonds too. Continue Reading →
Closets, they’re never big enough are they? I dream about having a large walk-in room like the ones on my closet inspiration Pinboard, but instead of getting larger my wardrobes keep getting smaller.
I spent years complaining about the 4 foot by 7 foot closet in my 1920′s bungalow, but since we’ve moved to our temporary home my new wardrbe is barely three feet deep and two feet wide. That’s a tiny closet! It makes the previous one seem like ample space for any woman’s collection of clothing. My new situation is really one step up from living out of a suitcase. It should be horrible, but oddly enough it’s actually easier to get dressed in the morning. All I brought to our temporary home are the spring and summer clothes I love the most. I was careful to pack my most versatile items and I also picked a color scheme of blues and greens. The end result is the wardrobe I’ve always wanted: the one where almost everything goes together and getting dressed is a breeze.
Still, I needed help setting up the closet which was just an empty space when we arrived. I needed to arrange purses, shoes, underthings and of course clothes in a way that made sense. I wanted a few tiny closet organization ideas, so I searched Google and my favorite blogs for inspiration and came up with these ten helpful links. Continue Reading →
