The head-to-toe denim look is huge right now! With this look you’re matching, but in an effortless way; mixing and matching denim washes is a great way to be comfortable, casual, and classy all in one. You can never wear too much denim.

This look matches on a smaller scale using similar colored leather shoes and belt; this strategy will give you more flexibility with the rest of your outfit like a different color blazer. Throwing in a lighter shade of the color used to match is great way to tie in the color scheme, but not make it obvious that you were trying to match.

Last, but not least, wearing all black is by far the easiest way to match.  Head-to-toe black gives off the appearance of being dressed up, but is the most effortless way to look nice. All black will make you look classy, and really, who doesn’t own black?

Which look would you feel most comfortable wearing?

What’s In My Bag: Kennedy’s Edition

Kennedy Bag

Being a full-time creative writing student at Arizona State and working for Klury three days out of the week leaves me wanting to just carry around the items I absolutely need. I switch bags a lot, so I try to keep what I carry at a minimum to make switching quicker and easier.

What are my essentials?

Well it is my opinion that everyone should carry around a planner, you never know when you are going to need to schedule an appointment or make a “to-do” list; planners are a great way to stay organized and if you’re a student and employed, like me, we have our hands full constantly! My journal is always with me no matter where I go, being a creative writing major I need to be able to jot down any ideas that pop into my head (which is frequently) and a pen, of course, is a must as well. Living in Arizona my skin goes dry all the time, so carrying around a bottle of lotion is a life saver; the Ed Hardy lotion I use smells amazing. Since social media never sleeps I bring my iPhone and Mac with me to stay up-to-date and contribute to the buzz of photos being uploaded to Instagram, snapping a photo of my outfit of the day or a delicious meal keeps me entertained. Don’t ever be caught with a dead phone, bring your charger with you so you can always stay in touch with your friends!

What are your essentials? Do you use the same bag everyday, or switch it up?

6 Clothes Cleaning Secrets

6 clothes cleaning secrets | Klury.com

With the amount of pre-owned clothing, shoes, and accessories we sort through on a daily basis, we have become quite the experts when it comes to cleaning and refreshing wardrobe pieces. Sometimes a simple trip to the dry cleaner or rinse cycle won’t do the trick, so these are 6 of our secret tools to conquer stains and wear.

1) Pantyhose: The weave of pantyhose removes residue from lotions and deodorants.

Use on Clothing.

3) Baby Wipes:Whether trying to remove a denim stain from a light-colored leather handbag or spruce up a dirty pair of shoes, baby wipes are a life saver. The gentle wipes help us tackle the biggest of problems.

Use on Shoes and Handbags.

3) Dryer Sheets: Have a clingy dress or a musky handbag? Rubbing a dryer sheet on the inside of a dress will help remove static. Or, store your handbag with a dryer sheet inside to remove any odors.

Use on Shoes, Clothing, Handbags.

4) Masking Tape: Cleaning the inside of a handbag? Roll a pice of masking tape and press inside hard to reach pockets and crevices to remove any dirt or crumbs.

Use on Handbags.

5) Lint Rollers: Lint rollers are a universal clothing cleaner. A quick swipe across the sole of shoes removes dirt and residue. On clothing, lint rollers remove pet hair and fuzz.

Use on Shoes and Clothing.

6) Nursery Air Freshener Pods: Arm & Hammer’s air freshener pods not only neutralize dirty diaper pails, but also make a great odor neutralizer for shoes. Slip a pod in each shoe or boot to keep your footwear smelling great.

Use on shoes.

Are there any household items you use to keep your wardrobe clean and fresh?

A Closet Edit Recap

If there’s one thing I am passionate about, it is making people feel confidant in what they wear. A few Saturday’s ago, I had the pleasure of helping a local, busy professional tackle her closet. As a mom, wife, and successful business owner, Mrs. P was feeling overwhelmed and frustrated trying to get ready in the mornings.

The Klury Edit

We spent a full Saturday (12 hours!) tackling 25 years of closet build up and giving her the tools for easy dressing. When I left that Saturday night, we had cleared out 250+ pounds of clothes, shoes, and bags to donate and sell. Mrs. P is now armed with the tools for no-stress dressing and a style guide to help her maintain her wardrobe.

The Klury Edit

 

I must admit, I am a bit jealous of her new streamlined closet, complete with chandelier!

The Klury EditWe are a few short weeks away from launching an exciting new division to Klury. This post will give you a hint at what’s in store. We’re ready to take a innovative approach to editing, styling, and organizing your wardrobes!

What’s in My Bag: Work Edition + A Vlog

What's in my bag | Klury.com Work Bag

When it comes to bags, I am of the belief that the bigger the better! On a typical day, I am running around town from the park for fitness bootcamp, to client’s homes for wardrobe edits, to the office to work on my to-do lists. Finding a chic bag large enough to fit my planner, laptop, and other necessities is never an easy task. This Phillip Lim for Target tote has been a lifesaver over the past few months. Not only does it have room to hold my day-to-day essentials, but it also makes for a great travel bag.

Want more details on how I use the contents of my bag? Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel and watch my vlog here.

Do you prefer large totes or small purses?
