How to Refresh Your Plus Size Wardrobe

How to Refresh Your Plus Size Wardrobe for 2020 and Beyond

Do you stare at your closet morning after morning and think “I have nothing to wear,” while looking at dozens of pieces of clothing? How about walking into work, not feeling as confident as you can because you’ve become bored and uninspired with your wardrobe and didn’t want to put much effort into getting ready? It happens to everyone.

Clothing is a form of self-expression and it says a lot more about us than we think. According to the book that’s been called “the psychology of fashion”, You Are What You Wear, by Jennifer Baumgartner. Clothing and personal style are also things that plus size women turn to in order to cultivate more confidence within themselves. So when our wardrobe doesn’t speak to us, other things in our life like confidence, inspiration, motivation and drive fall to the wayside.

That’s why everyone, at some point—and sometimes more than a couple of times a year—needs to conduct a closet refresh. A plus size wardrobe refresh could either mean investing in new, strategic pieces to help your wardrobe feel current and fresh, or reorganizing your closet to give old pieces a new opportunity to spark confidence and joy for you.

No matter what your next step is to revamp your wardrobe, follow these suggestions to help set you on the right path and get your style game back on point in as little as an hour.

How to Refresh Your Plus Size Wardrobe

Take Inventory

Usually when we lose inspiration or trust in our wardrobe, it’s because we feel like we are missing something–for example, a sharp blazer, a pair of dark wash skinny jeans or a basic white V–neck shirt. We let this idea that we don’t have the right clothing convince us that we will never be able to create the perfect outfit. Before we rip our closet to shreds, it’s important to take inventory of the things we have, the things we need and the things we would like to have.

  1. Write down a list of pieces that you would like to have in your wardrobe that you don’t think you have currently.
  2. Also write down the pieces you love and wear every day that fit you perfectly. If you have time and you’re feeling inspired, think about or write down what it is about these clothes that makes them so special. What characteristics do they possess?

How to Refresh Your Plus Size Wardrobe

Reorganize and Restructure

Before you spend a dime on a new wardrobe, you can rediscover pieces you had previously forgotten about by reorganizing and cleaning out your closet. So let’s get started! If you can, empty everything that is hanging in your closet, but keep these items close by. We are going to go through every item of clothing, so make sure to block out about an hour or two of your time to do this. After this process is complete, you should have a much better idea of exactly which garments are in your closet, and you may find yourself feeling more inspired as you uncover lost items, clothing that still has the tags on it or other pieces that might be old but have a new use in your style. As you go through your closet, make sure you are adding to your inventory list when you realize that you may need to replace damaged clothes or invest in strategic pieces.

  1. Pick a color, like black, and start hanging up all of your black items on one of the far sides of the closet.
  2. As you hang these items up, ask yourself, “Have I worn this within the past three months?” If not, do you plan on wearing it again? If yes, keep the garment and hang it up in the closet. If not, consider donating it. If you don’t like the idea of parting with clothes, place it in a box and if you go 30 days without touching it, donate it. If you go into the box to retrieve it, it’s earned a second chance at life in your closet.
  3. As you hang up clothing by color, start to also organize it by types of garments. Your closet should look something like this: [Black: Dresses | Blouses | Sweaters | Blazers | Pants]; [White: Dresses | Blouses | Sweaters | Blazers | Pants], etc. The reason we are hanging up your clothes by color and then by garment type is so you can get ready faster in the morning, and if things are categorized, you’ll be able to see most things in your closet as you sift through them every day to find the perfect color and garment, rather than have things scattered and get lost.
  4. When you come across seasonal garments that may be good for summer but not winter—like plus size off the shoulder tops – think about how you could style them for the off-season instead of packing them away until next year. Bringing in an off-season piece to an outfit could make a cool addition to one of your favorite looks.
  5. While you are hanging garments up, if you notice that you have a piece of clothing you have been wanting, but forgot you had—like a sharp blazer—cross it off your “need to buy” list we created in the first step.

How to Refresh Your Plus Size Wardrobe

Invest in the Pieces You Need

Now that you have a color- and garment-coordinated wardrobe, you should have a clear vision of the types of pieces you need to invest in to really make your wardrobe pop. Here is some advice to keep in mind while shopping for new additions to your closet.

  1. Stock Up on the Basics – You can never have too many foundational pieces because they are so versatile and are also worn a lot more than statement pieces. Plus size tunics can be a staple in any look and almost every season so don’t be afraid to stock up on them.
  2. Don’t Be Afraid to Indulge in Accessories – Accessories have a lot more power than we give them. They can make or break an outfit, as well as take it from one style to the next. If you notice you’re running low on accessories that could diversify some of the basic items you have in your closet, think about what pieces you may need and prioritize spending for those as well.
  3. Keep Quality in Mind – While we may always be on the hunt for the best bargain, the greatest value for you is within the longevity of your clothing. Invest in high-quality plus size jeans that fit you well, feel comfortable and will last. If you need to splurge on a high-quality item, make sure that it’s something that can be worn for many different occasions and with different outfits. For example, you’ll definitely want to purchase a pair of dark wash skinny jeans rather than velvet plaid leggings because the jeans are classic, and they will carry you through many seasons and multiple years. Whereas the leggings will be trendy for a season and then they will just collect dust in your closet.

Now that you have an organized closet that is easy and efficient to navigate and you have identified the pieces you need to enhance your plus size wardrobe, you should be feeling inspired and ready to dress to the nines.

Crown Royal XR Bespoke “sipping” blazer

Crown Royal Releases Limited Edition Bespoke Sipping Blazer

When you think of whiskey, you likely picture someone sitting by a cozy fire, sipping a glass filled with the dark liquor and perusing their favorite novel. Whiskey has always held an old-world charm and now it has become even more elevated with a limited-edition product from one of the most renowned whiskey brands in the world.

Crown Royal, the blended Canadian whiskey brand, has recently released the Crown Royal Blazer. It is a made-to-measure sipping blazer and draws inspiration from Crown Royal XR Extra Rare, the rarest of the brand’s rare whiskey series. This rare whiskey is expected to run out of stock very soon, much like the blazer itself.

 Crown Royal XR Bespoke “sipping” blazer

The exclusive blazer is meant to be a celebrated collector’s item for the modern, luxury-loving individual. Not only does the blazer’s luxuriousness come from its exclusivity, but from its high-quality design as well. Renowned celebrity designer ALBA partnered with Crown Royal to make the blazer and the designer’s style of luxury tailoring certainly carries through. The blazer is a rich navy in color and features a gold embroidered Crown Royal XR crown on the breast pocket. The jacket’s interior is a gold silk lining with a pattern of Crown Royal XR crowns and patches.

Crown Royal XR Bespoke “sipping” blazerCrown Royal XR Bespoke “sipping” blazer

The gold accents continue in the interior of the top welt pocket, which is designed as a gold silk pull out pocket square. Flap bottom pockets on the jacket also feature gold silk interiors. Buttons on the waterfall cuff are gold-plated as well and engraved with more Crown Royal XR crowns. The blazer’s lapel features a contrasting plush velvet on the collar and trim.

CRXR Bespoke “sipping” blazer

All of this luxury comes for a price. A single blazer costs $1,924 on the whiskey brand’s website. While the price may be a bit steep for the average consumer, this blazer is truly like no other. Whether you’re climbing into a car service’s three-passenger Sedan on your next business trip or you’re attending an exclusive soiree with your family and friends, the Crown Royal blazer is sure to complete your classy look. If you want to welcome this high-quality blazer into your wardrobe, be sure to snap up one of the blazers sooner rather than later.

2019 Holiday Gift Guide - 12 Spirits to Gift This Holiday Season

Booker’s Batch 2019- 04 “Beaten Biscuits” ($79.99) is the newest and final release of 2019. This deep chestnut-colored bourbon is named after the small, cracker-like biscuits 6th Generation Master Distiller Booker Noe loved to make. It bears hints of the oak barrel through the sweetness, much like the scent of caramel icing for a cake. The finish is medium and very flavorful.

Canadian Club 42-yr Old Whisky ($299.95) – The second release within the premium expression series, CC Chronicles/MC. Batched and barrelled more than four decades ago, this limited-edition expression is masterfully blended. It showcases its robust rye spice, delicate notes of brown sugar and baking spices that creates its exceptionally rich, smooth taste.

Bakers Bourbon ($59.99)  – Re-emerged as a single barrel product in October 2019 with a new bottle design to celebrate the individual characteristics inside each and every Baker’s Bourbon barrel, while delivering the smooth, medium-bodied bourbon fans enjoy.

Knob Creek Quarter Oak ($49.99) is the newest limited-time bourbon to join Knob Creek’s award-winning portfolio. The expression has been aged in quarter cask barrels; this adds a layer of richer notes of oak, balanced with Knob Creek’s traditional sweet flavor. Quarter Oak is here just in time to add to your collection or gift to friends and family this season.

The Balvenie Fifty: Marriage 0197 ($38,000) – The second in a coveted series of unique expressions of exceptional quality that continue the distillery’s rich history of aged variants. Showcasing Malt Master David Stewart’s unique skill and knowledge, the bottling is comprised of highly rare liquids aged 50 years or over. This bottling has been selected from American Oak casks in the oldest sections of TheBalvenie’s stocks. This single malt Scotch whisky is rich and deep with an abundance of oak tannins, dark fruits, bitter chocolate, and intense spice. The taste encompasses big and bold character; indulge in its malty sweetness and a spicy outburst, hints of honey and dark chocolate balance the oak tannins while the finish is a rich and spicy mouth coating with a luscious oak sweetness.

Highclere Castle Gin ($48.99) – The latest offering from the 800-year-old Highclere Castle estate that will forever be the iconic Grantham home on Downton Abbey. The gin is made with botanicals inspired by the castle’s herb gardens; these gardens were originally planted in the ninth century by the Bishops of Winchester. The grounds boast an ancient underground water source which enhances the crisp yet smooth gin. It also integrates Highclere’s acclaimed estate-grown oats into the blend to add a unique smoothness and a long, memorable finish.

2019 Holiday Gift Guide - 12 Spirits to Gift This Holiday Season

BACARDÍ Coquito ($17.99) – Nothing says bring on the holiday season like the famous Puerto Rican holiday drink, Coquito! Thanks to Bacardi, there are no more waits for someone’s tío or Abuela to “hook you up” with a bottle. The new ready-to-drink coquito is made with the signature BACARDÍ Superior white rum, toasted spices, coconut cream, vanilla, and cinnamon. Now you can fully indulge in the heritage-filled libation in two easy steps – open bottle and pour over ice.

Four Roses 2019 Limited Edition Small Batch ($140.00) – The first Four Roses limited-quantity bottle to feature a 21-year-old Bourbon from the distillery’s OBSV recipe. Non-chill filtered and bottled at a 112.6 proof, the 2019 Limited Edition Small Batch offers elegant aromas of oak, honey, red raspberries, and vanilla. The Bourbon is complemented by flavors of bright, sweet fruits, cinnamon, baking spices, and mellow barrel flavors leading to a
rich, soft and lasting finish. This limited edition release will also feature a 15-year-old OESK, 15-year-old OESV and 11-year-old OESV.

Little Book Chapter 3: “The Road Home” ($99.99) – A one-of-a-kind blend and features specialty aged liquid streams, representing each of the original Small Batch Bourbon Collection brands in honor of Freddie’s grandad, Booker Noe.

Basil Hayden’s X Wildsam’s “Points of Interest” Bourbon ($39.99) – For the travel addict or collector on your list, this limited edition bottle from Basil Hayden’s Bourbon and must-have travel guide company, Wildsam Field Guides is a must. The two brands have teamed up to create a limited-edition gift featuring the best of Brooklyn. The new release, “Points of Interest,” features a bottle of Basil Hayden’s Bourbon wrapped in a Wildsam Field Guide. The guide includes exclusive facts, hidden spots, and drink recipes that only pertain to your city. This bespoke conversation guide is the perfect conversation starter and perfect for discovering something new right in your background.

Laphroaig 16 Year Old Whisky ($89.99) – An exceptional expression that has been matured in ex-bourbon barrels. Over time, the whisky’s smoky flavor softens on the senses; it is beautifully married with sweet vanilla notes, enhanced by aging in American Oak barrels. The result is a long-lasting, smoky, sweet and rich flavor. We find it’s best to enjoy this 16-yr old neat or with a drop of water.

Black Momma Chai Tea Vodka ($4.75 Mini 50ml bottle) – Tea lovers will swoon over this gluten-free and kosher vodka infused with natural tea leaves and chai spices. Handcrafted in small batches, this 5X distilled and 5X filtered, tea-flavored vodka will warm you up from your toes up.

Holiday Gift Guide: Give the Gift of Great Eyewear This Holiday Season

For some reason, there’s a misconception that you’re only supposed to wear sunglasses during the summer; as if the sun doesn’t shine during the other three seasons. We all know it does plus the winter season also bring sun glare. Because the sun doesn’t rise quite as high as it does in the summer, the low winter sun can cause glare when driving or walking. Indoors, we stare at computer and phone screens all day, causing eye strain. In other words, there’s always a need to protect your eyes year’ round. Just because we’re heading into the winter season, doesn’t mean we should stop wearing protective eyewear. Aside from their obvious cool factor and variety of frames for men and women, these great eyewear brands feature many attributes that help protect your eyes.

Give the Gift of Great Eyewear This Holiday Season

Whether you’re looking for regular sun protection, stylish frames, blue light blockers, or color blindness correction, these eyewear brands should be your first and perhaps only stop. We’re featuring favorite sunnies from JORD, Eagle Eyes, Enchroma, and Pixel Eyewear.

[block]1[/block]JORD EYEWEAR

JORD SUNGLASSES

We love JORD for many stylish reasons. First the incorporation of real wood into their products (they have gorgeous wood watches); a great example of this is their round-framed Louie Sunglasses which boasts finished African Padauk. These must-haves features ultra-light polarized lenses, a reinforced nickel, and copper alloy frame, flex spring hinges for improved comfort and reduction in breakability, and wood from Central and Tropical West Africa. The round-framed Louie Sunglasses feature polarized lenses; a high impact, and water-resistant, thermal plastic frame made from natural cotton linter and wood pulp, reinforced with a beta titanium alloy. These modern and feminine take on the classic aviators boasts walnut wood from Eastern Europe. The best part, JORD has a huge holiday sale going on right now, so both of these are available for less than the usual retail.

[block]4[/block]

EAGLE EYES SUNGLASSES

As our daily lives continue to be completely overrun with computer and smartphone screens, our exposure to harmful blue light increases. Eagle Eyes Eyewear is helping to combat that issue with its cutting-edge range of sunglasses that uses NASA-certified technology. They offer a wide variety of men’s and women’s sunglasses, low light, night, and computer eyewear. Eagle Eye’s TriLenium® Polarized Sunglasses protect your eyes, blocking blue light and 99.9% of harmful solar radiation. Get ready to say goodbye to eye strain and eye fatigue. We love the cool oversized styles like the Astin and Carina sunglasses. But there’s plenty of options available like rimless, foldable, aviator, active, etc.

[block]7[/block]PIXEL EYEWEAR

Pixel Computer Glasses

Continuing the Computer eyewear category, we present Pixel Eyewear, the clearest computer glasses engineered to protect your eyes from blue light.

Its lenses also contain nanotechnology that reduces smudges and repels water and dust. For comfort, each lens has an anti-reflective coating, eliminating computer glare and reducing the stress on your eyes. Along with clear computer glasses, Pixel also offers premium polarized sunglasses, and a range of stronger Amber-hued glasses, which filter more blue light. The amber glasses are designed for heavy-users, gamers, and night shift workers.

Color Blindness Correction Sunglasses

Last but certainly not least, we’ve all seen and cried along with the videos for this brand. People who have gone their entire lives being color blind, finally see the world as colorfully as we do every day. Although it’s difficult to imagine, seeing the grey world “lit up” in color is a gift many thought they’d never experience until Enchroma Sunglasses. Whether you’re looking for indoor (mild, moderate Protan color blindness) or outdoor (most types of color blindness) color blindness correction glasses, all Enchroma eyewear is 100% UV Protection and Rx compatible. This holiday season, you can save $50 off classic wayfarer styles like the Ellis, aviators like the Atlas, and square frames like the Grant. Along with color correction, all the Enchroma eyewear block 100% of the UVA and UVB radiation components in sunlight.

USPS Operation Santa Online

USPS Unveils New Way to Donate to a Hundred-Year Cause

The holidays are officially upon us and now, more than ever, Americans are concerned about their finances.

As of June 2019, consumer debt across the United States reached $4.1 trillion. Now that the holidays are closing in and last-minute shopping has begun, these debts are more stressful on the millions of families across the country with lower annual incomes.

If you want to support a family in need, now is your chance. Since 1912, the U.S. Postal Service has allowed people to adopt letters that families address to Santa. The USPS Operation Santa® program allows the public to read these letters and even “adopt” a family.

USPS Operation Santa Online

Many of these letters are from families in need with requests for necessities; many need a new pair of shoes or a warmer coat for the winter. An estimated 80% of children have untreated anxiety disorders and these feelings of worry can compound during the holidays. The USPS allows their letters written to Santa to be read by the public in order to gather donations. In the past, this has only been done on paper.

This year, those letters will be available online for the first time.

Letters are stored on the program’s new site, USPSOperationSanta.com. Here, you can read letters from individuals and families in need and shop for the items on their wishlist. All you need to do is wrap the gifts before bringing them to a participating post office before December 21st. That way, the families can receive your donation by the time Christmas is here.

But don’t worry: the names and addresses of the families involved are kept safe from the public. The USPS staff redact their information and provide accompanying coded labels to ensure the right gifts are sent to the right locations.

You can even adopt as a team if you want to get your entire family or workplace involved. Since these donations are tax-deductible, you can rest assured that your gift will help everyone who takes part in this great cause. While you don’t need to shell out the big bucks for Invisalign treatments or new gaming systems, just about everyone in your circle can contribute gloves, coats, and a new pair of shoes for someone in need.

If you don’t want to go out and buy gifts on top of the other last-minute holiday shopping you have to do, you can also make a monetary donation that goes right to the families in need. The average U.S. household with a credit card carries an average of $8,284 in credit card debt; this hardly scratches the surface in some cases. Never easier during the holiday season, there’s a chance to help spread holiday cheer to families who need it most.

With help from the U.S. post office — and from advancing technology — anyone across the country will have a chance to make someone’s Christmas a bit merrier.
