The Way to Revive Your Closet In This Recession

As the economy slows, many savvy shoppers are cutting corners at their favorite department stores in favor of sales racks. In such financially lean times, it is no wonder everyone loves to brag about that “great deal” they got the other day while shopping.

According to Janet Wood, style expert and founder of Fashion Fit Formula, “a sale is a retail store’s way of flirting with you. They are saying to you, ‘come into the store and see the bargains!’ It is a very temping thing to do, especially when you are trying to supplement your wardrobe.”

Is It Really a Sale?

Many times the higher end stores bring in sale clothing that is not up to the quality that of their non-sale items. According to Janet, “they are loss-leaders. Clothing sold at almost no profit to attract buyers into the location where they will then see the high profit clothing.”

This is how it works: the sale garment isn’t as nice as their other merchandise but its cost while lower, isn’t that much lower. Just a few steps a way is a rack with obviously better quality clothing and while the price is higher, it’s not that much higher. The buyer rationalizes for just $30 to $40 more, I can get this out fit and it looks so much more expensive. That’s true, but you have just blown your clothing budget.

Are they still a bargain? Sometimes yes, but most often they are not.

Check the quality of the fabric? Is the weave tight or loose?
Look at the zipper; are there any puckers in the seams holding it in place? Does the bottom of the zipper area buckle?
Also make sure to check any stress seams (areas where the clothing will have additional wear). They are usually sleeves and front and back seams on pants, shorts or capris.

Where Can I Find a “True Bargain”?

According to Janet, true bargains can be found as the seasons change and unsold items are reduced in cost. Evaluate the items you may choose to purchase carefully.

Is it a basic staple of your wardrobe?

Do you the necessary accessories to make this new blend of colors work?
Is this color or style going to be “out” in a year?

Janet says, “unless your lifestyle revolves around dressing in evening clothing and going out frequently, only purchase dressy clothes when necessary. It’s important to think about cost per wearing. If you blow your budget on a “must have outfit” that you only wear once – it was very expensive indeed.” A far better choice would be to invest that money in an article of clothing that you will wear twenty times a season. Evening separates have made it possible to significantly reduce the cost of this look by adding a new top and wearing with evening pants or long skirt.

To battle the long-known dilemma of “it doesn’t fit quite right, but it’s on sale!” Janet invented the Fashion Fit Formula, which is a mathematical system based on 12 vertical measurements of a woman’s body. Once your personal measurements have been entered into the Fashion Fit Formula, you get a specific plan detailing how to tailor your existing wardrobe to be the most flattering on your unique body. Janet says that the Fashion Fit Formula helps women avoid “closet guilt” and can turn those sale items you never wear into your next great outfit.

Review: I've been coveting this line since they were featured on a favorite online store of mine, Urban Outfitters. I had the opportunity to review my favorite design (and location), Venice Shower Curtain ($26.50). I anticipated on it's arrival in the mail. When it finally did arrive, I was able to bid farewell to the Hello Kitty design and modernize my bathroom with this sophisticated design. Not only I was in awe of the breathtaking design, but I was impressed with how surprisingly sturdy that this shower curtain is. It is refreshing to see that are more options for shower curtains. You will not find too many shower curtains that are this beautiful and made with such fine quality at a reasonable price.

placemats, candles, tea towels, bed sets, aprons, etc.

Della Designed Interview and Giveaway



What made you start Della Designed?
I had been successfully selling bags by another designer and decided that I could and would design my own bags out of good quality leather and make them affordable. I've always loved handbags and knew that I could combine fashion and function for some really fabulous bags. I had some ideas and had been listening to my customers about what they were looking for in a handbag.

Did you decide on your own, or did someone convince you that you could do it?
The decision was mine but I'm fortunate to have a lot of encouragement from my husband, family, and friends.

Why did you choose for your designer bags to be at an affordable price
- under $200?

I know that this is an immense appreciation for women
to be able to afford fabulous, leather, designer bags.

I had that price point in my mind because I knew that most women would love a beautiful, leather, designer handbag that was affordable. This is in Canadian dollars, so because the U.S. dollar is worth about 20% more, the cost of one of my bags is under $160 U.S. I'm hoping to keep them at a reasonable cost, so that they are accessible to all women. I call them an affordable splurge.

Do you remember your very first sale?
The day my handbags came in, I had two friends come over. They were so excited! One friend bought one and the other bought two. I knew they weren't just being polite!

Which handbag are you most excited about right now?
I am really excited about my spring collection that should be coming in a few weeks. Along with a brand new tote and handbag, I have the Holly and Susan coming in new colours for spring. I will also have a laptop bag (airport security friendly) and wallets soon! The first bag from my collection I carried was the Leah. They're like my children, I love them all!

How do you unwind after a long day?


I love eating out and going to movies. I also play soccer, tennis, and golf. I spend a lot of time online checking out other designers and looking for inspiration.



One winner will receive a Crimson Red Heather Tote (a $199 value) from Della Designed.

Answer the following question: What other design from Della Designed do you like?

Post about it on the comment widget along with name and email address on the comment widget above instead of replying to the post (less hassle that way). All of your information will be hidden. You can enter this contest once a day.



The crimson red Heather is a vibrant red, all leather, tote for ladies who want to be noticed. The lining is 100% cotton. Inside, you will find a cell phone and PDA pocket and a zippered compartment. A fashionable lock will keep your belongings safe or just making a statement.

The giveaway will conclude March 23rd.

Twisted Silver Giveaway





One winner will receive a Rule Breaker necklace in Matte Silver ~or~ Brass (a $40 value) from Twisted Silver.

Answer the following question: What Twisted Rule Breaker would you find yourself wearing?

Post about it on the comment widget along with name and email address on the comment widget above instead of replying to the post (less hassle that way). All of your information will be hidden. You can enter this contest once a day.



"Rule Breakers" are designs that don't quite play by the rules but are not so brash so they somehow WORK anyway! Clasp in the front ~gasp~, asymmetrical design ~shudder~, tarnished base metals mixed with plated metal ~say it isn't so~ dainty mixed with edgy! And yet, Rule Breakers just seem to go with everything you wear. They grow on you, and you find yourself stacking them with other pieces or wearing them solo. You find yourself wearing them all the time and people start commenting on your original style. Rule Breakers walk the line beautifully: feminine, yet edgy, traditional and contemporary.

The Chic necklaces definitely qualify as Rule Breakers. Light, simple, original for any occasion and every-day wear. They will be $40 when they launch on March 24, or free for the lucky winner who can wear it before anyone else!

The giveaway will conclude March 13th.

Nikita Lynn Giveaway




One winner will receive the Anna Handbag in Paprika (a $119 value) from Nikita Lynn.

Answer the following question: What is your favorite item at Nikita Lynn?

Post about it on the comment widget along with name and email address on the comment widget above instead of replying to the post (less hassle that way). All of your information will be hidden. You can enter this contest once a day.

These are all words to describe Nikita Lynn Design's individualistic flair. Nikita developed an addiction for vintage handbags at the age of 21, at a thrift store in Gainesville, Florida. There, on the shelf, calling to her, was a kitschy little bag from the 1960's priced at $20.00. From the moment she laid eyes on that tiny piece of handbag history, she knew it was love at first sight. And so the dream of designing her very own line of bags began!

Two years ago, while enjoying a martini with a friend, she decided to stop dreaming, and turn her passion for purses into a reality. She risked everything, quit her "Corporate American" job, went to India, and plunged head first into the world of handbag havoc. It was then, that Nikita Lynn Design was created, and concepts were turned into clutches, totes, and hobos.




Flawlessly in-vogue. The Anna is a seamless fusion of authenticity and metropolitan chic. With their signature, hand-blocked motif print, the Anna is sure to be the center of attention.

The giveaway will conclude March 14th.
