    the Essentials: H is for ‘hoop’sters

    closet redis: gettin’ my grrrr on

     i’ve discovered two things while doing my closet inventory:  i have a thing for animal print – particularly leopard; and animal print accessories (belts, scarves, handbags and shoes) are a great way to add interest to an outfit for work.  so if you think wearing a leopard print dress might be a bit overkill for your cube try to rock an animal print scarf , belt or shoe.   what’s in my closet:   Handbag – Gap      Handbag – Banana Republic     Shoes – Kenneth Cole Reaction   Belts – Aldo, Gap, Jacob  Scarves me
