The Clothing Collective

Okay, so I have been majorly MIA for the past two weeks, but work was extra hectic and it sapped all energy and will to live out of me.

But now I'm back and excited to announce The Clothing Collective, a new project with my bestie Crystal (of Seoul Sold)!

Every week we are going to feature an outfit post that we feel best represents whatever theme for the week we've chosen (first up, an anniversary dinner date outfit!) and see what each other comes up with!

Here's our schedule for June:

Anniversary/ Date Night... June 2nd
Spring Garden Party... June 9th
Summer Fun... June 16th
Work-out wear... June 23rd
Beachwear... June 30th

Here's who we are:

My name is Crystal and until just a few years I was pretty much fashion challenged. I never knew what to wear and always felt like I was lost in a clothing store.

On top of being a complete fashion wreck I was also struggling with my weight and not knowing how to flatter my body with my clothing choices was hard. Well the fitness gods intervened and I got myself a brand-new body, but STILL no clue how to best accentuate it so I started to study up and I really began to see fashion in a whole new light.

Fashion stopped being my life's bane and became a thing that I enjoyed after I took the time to understand how to dress my shape. I believe that fashion should be a vehicle of self-expression and empowerment for women at every size, and I hope you like what I bring to The Clothing Collective, because I'll be bringing my A-game!

Hello again. I’m a fashion school drop-out turned journalist but I still love clothes and I love seeing what creative outfits other people come up with (particularly if they are daring as that is so not my style!).  My look would probably best be described as classic with a nod to current trends (ugh, how pretentious does that sound?). All I know is I absolutely think less is more and would rather have an understated look than be known for being over the top—but don’t get me wrong I love bold looks on other ladies! My clothes are rarely* designer because um, journalist, here, but I don’t see that as an impediment to creating really cute looks.

I’m excited to start this project with Crystal and see what we both come up!

*and by rarely, I mean never.
