Blazers have suffered from PR attacks lately. They're so underrated. But that's not my wardrobe hero to share with you today. It's what goes under a blazer.
Tina, here. Neckerchiefs. Come again? Yes, neckerchiefs. They are a thing. And you'll be wanting to try it this spring. They are in fact a big spring trend. Neckerchiefs (baby scarves) are a fun accessory. But it's like wearing a hat; it takes some guts. I broke myself into the habit by wearing my bandana as [...]
Tina, here. Have you noticed? Everyone is breathing a little easier these days. That's because there's more room in our clothes. We literally have more breathing room. Sleeves are fluffier, waistlines are looser, skirts are longer and pants legs are fuller. WHAT IS HAPPENING? A revolution. Just like in the Shoe Kingdom, women (led by [...]
Tina, here. It was time. I got bored. I needed to try something I would not have a year ago. So I bit the bullet and bought a bomber jacket. Confession. Deidre saw it first. She showed it to me for her and I had to have it too. So now we have a friendship [...]
Today we're hearing from my friend and fashion editor, Cathi Aycock. She did a little piece on me this fall, and I am thrilled to have her here with us for a great how-to-wear post! We're taking a step off the holiday train for a little break and Cathi is showing us some ways to [...]
Quick PSA. Never show up to a party empty-handed. It's just not done. Your host has gone out of his or her way to clean, straighten, cook (or pull out the snacks he had on hand after reading this) and spent his money on new candles and wine and maybe even party gifts, and may [...]
I think I would be so stressed if I had to come with a new batch of teacher gifts every single year. Do the teachers compare their gifts? I couldn't take it. So here's a little peek inside our Holiday Shopping Gift Guide that Vault Insiders have been shopping for all their gifts already and [...]
It's a cornerstone of our philosophy here at Your Style Vault, buy pieces you can wear multiple ways in multiple seasons. And to many kinds of functions. A great dress can achieve this for you, and Tina's showing us how to wear one dress three ways this holiday season.
Tina, here. Time to get in the mood, dolls. The holidays are here. Admit it, when did you pull out your Amy Grant's Tender Tennessee Christmas album? October? It's ok, we all have our secrets. But today you can embrace carols and jingles, shame-free. These are some of my old faves, sans the Amy Grant [...]
My friends near and far, do you know how thankful I am for you, who are a part of this, our family at Your Style Vault? We've known some of you for the ten years you've been inviting us into your homes. Some of you are brand-spankin' new and we are so glad you're here. Everyone is welcome.
Just when you were wondering if it is time to retire lace from your trend rotation, I am here to tell you it is back this Fall. I know you are thinking: back? Yes, lace is re-inventing itself this season.
As a child of the 80’s when I heard Floral was in this season, I immediately flashed to Holly Hobby and Laura Ingalls Wilder. While I loved them as a child, I’ve grown up since then. I confess, I struggle with patterns.
I was intimidated by the over the knee look when it made its re-entry last winter. Over the knee, isn’t that for Julia Roberts character in Pretty Woman?
Years ago, I promised myself I would add one great Fall coat to my collection each season in order to build a coat collection. I have kept that promise to myself and must confess, I have an option for everything (and some to spare)! My coat collection is dominated with two styles in particular: fur [...]
As someone who is always feeling the need for instant gratification, I will be the first to admit how attached I am to my iPhone. Because of this tech-savvy world we live in, I'm sharing the top three ways to use wearable technology as a stylish accessory.
Football says Fall is here! Game Day outfits at the start of season are a great way to get a little more life out of your Spring/Summer pieces. Look at it as their last hoorah!
It's back to school time, and I'll be honest, I cannot bring myself to leave the house for pencils. Me, who loves to shop. But sometimes, it's necessary. Make yourself a margarita, grab those supply lists and join me. Just remember the “one for you, one for Mommy rule”.
My U.P.S. man brings my dogs treats. During the holidays I serve him coffee and granola. We have a close relationship. He enables me to shop for the best deal, complete my fall wardrobe at 1AM and freshen up my basics. Online shopping, how did I manage before its existence?
What’s the one thing that can take your mind off of the fact that summer is drawing to a close? FALL BOOTS! Only the sweet smell of leather and beautiful crafted styling of a boot can make a girl forget about summer. There is no reason to have the summertime blues! We are bringing you [...]
News Flash: I don't just buy trends. I know you have heard and read a million times "fill your wardrobe with basics and timeless pieces for versatility." What in the world, how BORING! No. Really, it's not. If you saw my closet you would be quite shocked. It is not as large as you might imagine. [...]
Tina, here. Are you sitting down? Are you ready for this? My lovely friends, we have some great news. The past couple weeks we've been introducing you to some super-stylish friends of mine who are joining our team to connect with you as real women, who are real sizes and are dedicated to living really [...]
Tina, here. Yes, it's Tina. Tina Adams, who doesn't wear graphic tees except to sleep in, on occasion. Like that one I found that said, "Being a human is hard. It's time to be a unicorn." But I have friends who seem to pull off this look with ease because they are cool. Way cooler [...]
It's the season of outdoor concerts and shows. Wardrobe nightmare. Let's address this now so you'll know what to wear to a summer concert to stay cool.
