Last days of summer, Getting the Most out of your Wardrobe

[ 36 ] September 17, 2014 |

Are you getting the most out of your wardrobe?

Last days of Summer


The Chief Blonde is wearing:

Shoes -Dr. Scholl’s Milestone Wedges (Sold Out, Similar)

Jacket – Loft White Denim (Sold Out, Similar)

Peacock Belt (Vintage 80s baby!)

Sundress (Elle for Kohls, Similar)

I never seem to want to stop wearing summer clothes and I certainly am not in a rush for summer to disappear. During these final days of summer, I like to wear some of my favorite pieces just one more time. I call this “Getting the most out of your wardrobe.” As it’s getting a little cooler in Michigan, I might have to throw on a jacket or a sweater, but it’s a great way of extending your summer shoes and dresses just a few more weeks, don’t you think?

Making the most of your wardrobe



There is a new internet site that I found that has used designer clothes. I picked up a silk jacket, a black jacket with embellishments, a Lauren denim vest, and a pair of leather Nine West Shoes all for $36 from the sales section. I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE PRICES. Everything was in like new or very good condition. BONUS? A majority of the proceeds go to charity! For example, out of my $36 that I spent?  $19 goes to the charity designated by the owner that donated the clothes. This can’t miss site is called FASHION PROJECT.  GO THERE NOW! (before I buy all the good stuff!)

How do you extend your summer wardrobe fun?

[ 12 ] September 7, 2014 |

The dress style for everyone

Blog Note: Whoot! I was provided a classic Karina Dresses Jenny for this Triple Jenny Post. 

Karina Dresses Jenny

The Chief Blonde is wearing Karina Dresses Jenny in Neutral Ovals Print ($88), Vintage Shell Pin (similar), Gold Hoop Greek Key Earrings (similar), Stuart Weitzman Sandal  (Old, similar), Monroe and Main Shawl Color Jacket (old, similar), Michael Kors Multifunctional tote–my favorite bag ATM ($298 via and worth every penny). 

Belt it, sweater it, coat it…you still can’t hide how great this Karina Dresses Jenny looks

In May’s blog post Poppies! Beautiful Poppies! on the Jenny by Karina Dresses, I featured a gorgeous black and red dress sprinkled with poppies. In July, I featured the same Karina Dresses Jenny but choose the hibiscus print and paired it with a sweater. Once again this month, I am wearing the same dress style but you’d never know it. Just change the print and add wear a little jacket with it and BAHM, the Jenny is a whole new dress, isn’t it?

Karina Dresses Jenny

 The Jenny Karina Dresses

Jenny is named for our pal Jennifer from, who works hard, plays hard & loves hard…she faces every challenge with a smile and she inspires us.The Jenny dress features a sweetheart v-neckline that is slightly crossed in the front for nice coverage and swings at the bottom to define the waist at knee length. It’s a great cut for women who have hourglass figures like me. I also like how the dress is slightly shorter in the front and longer in the back.

Karina Dresses Jenny

Like all Karina dresses, the Jenny is made right in the USA in Brooklyn, NY! All Karina Dresses are machine washable and wrinkle-free (perfect for fall vacations). It was not as fitted around the breast area as many of the Karina styles are. You can find this dress right now in this print and various other prints. But hurry, the fabrics are limited and when they are gone they are gone.

Laura Mercier crème smooth lip colour Mango

In this outfit post, the Chief Blonde is wearing Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour ($27) in mango. While summer still lingers on, this mango color is just the reminder you may need to remember a few weeks still remain. A luxurious lipstick that gives lips the ultimate in color, texture, and finish. In one smoothing swipe, the crème formula envelops lips in rich color with a semi-lustrous finish. I like it because the Mango color is particularly pleasing with my skin, the texture is wonderful, and it doesn’t have a glossy finish.  





Now that you have seen it three times, WHY aren’t you wearing the Jenny Dress?
