Lipstick Wardrobe

Most Starlets would feel naked without lipstick.  Most glamour girls have a signature lip color they love, but it’s important to have a lipstick wardrobe so that you are prepared for any occasion.

First, we have the essentials…

Starlet Closet: Organizing

This is the final week of our Starlet Closet project (here are Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3 if you’d like to start from scratch).  Last week we went shopping.  So this week we focus on how to organize our fabulous wardrobe in our closet.  I will admit that right now I do not have my dream closet.  I am currently living with my parents and my childhood bedroom has morphed into a closet.  Someday I hope to have a whole room that I can convert into a glamorous Starlet dressing room.  But for now, here are some of my top tips for organizing your closet…

Use all the same hangers.  I fought this for the longest time.  I couldn’t justify buying hangers when there were so many around the house.  Some came with the clothes, some were from the dry cleaner, and others… well, I don’t know where they came from.  But I recently broke down and bought these thin felt hangers, and they not only look great, but they take up less space, hold the clothes better, and just make the whole closet look less cluttered.

Be sure to have some shelf space.  Shelves are perfect for folding sweaters (don’t hang knits, it will stretch them out), keeping pretty hat boxes with hats or accessories, and keeping a box of personal stylist kit supplies. (more…)

Starlet Closet: Shopping

It’s week 3 of our Starlet Closet cleanout, and this week we talk about shopping.  If you followed the steps from week 1 and week 2 you should have a list of basics that you need.  Add to that list a few fun trendy items that you’d love to add to your wardrobe and that suits your style.

Now go shopping.  Pick your favorite stores, online or in person, and start trying stuff on.

You can go high end or low end depending on your budget, but don’t automatically rule out one or the other.  Here are some shopping guidelines: (more…)

Silver Screen Style: Pal Joey

It’s rare to have two Bombshells in one film, let alone two Bombshells and a Sinatra… but Pal Joey is a film that fits the bill.  It has classic songs, beautiful dancing…. And then there’s the fashion.  No other film gives tribute to the classic sweater/pencil skirt combo like Kim Novak in this musical.  That, combined with Rita Hayworth as a rich socialite, and you have wardrobe inspiration that can even be worn today…

Starlet Closet: Cleaning

September is fashion month on Everyday Starlet, so I thought this would be the perfect time to clean out my closet.  The whole month I will be posting fashion related content, but every Tuesday I will be posting closet tips.  I’d like to invite you to follow along with me and by the end of the month we will all have (or be closer to) a perfect Starlet wardrobe.  This week is all about cleaning out your closet.

Closet Before

Take everything out and try it on (ideally with the proper undergarments) and see what fits you.  I know a lot of closet gurus will tell you to get rid of anything that doesn’t fit you right now…. However, I fluctuate weight frequently, so I keep a few various sizes of clothing for thin and thick days.  But if you have clothes that are several sizes too big or too small, you may want to consider letting them go.

Glamorous Starlet Swimsuit Wardrobe

It’s no surprise that Starlets love the beach…. and she needs to keep her aura of glamour even in the sand.  Most Starlets spend so much time on the beach… and getting photographed there… that she has a collection of swimsuits that make her feel like a Gorgeous Glamour Goddess.  Here are a Starlet’s bathing suit wardrobe basics….
