Yesterday’s Fall Haul; Check Out What I’ll Be Accessorizing With in the Coming Months!

Yesterday's Fall Haul!

I’m in DIRE need of new handbags.  I know all fashionistas feel this way, pretty much at all times.  But it was an emergency.  I have one bag that I’ve been using as a go-to…ONE!  And a quilted black purse that I use for the evenings.  It was getting embarrassing and increasingly difficult to call myself a stylist and fashion blogger while maintaining a straight face.  But have no fear, this has been remedied!  It’s my advice to always have a good brown/neutral bag in your wardrobe along with a black bag and a trendy  statement purse.  So I restocked on all three last night and added an emerald statement necklace (two trends in one!), a chunky gold bracelet and a LOVE necklace to my wardrobe.  My grand-total…wait for it…$85!!! And that’s including shipping and handling!  This leaves room in my budget for a pair of black biker boots next!  Until then, you can find me obsessively stalking my UPS tracking number until this pretty little package arrives at my doorstep.

In regards to the elements, do I really need a long black sweater today?  Nooo….but I  want it to be Fall already, and it’s just cloudy enough to pull off this look without looking insane.  Although looking insane has never bothered me too much.  Today I’m rocking my camo pants, cuffed because I like to play with proportions.  I’m wearing then with a champagne collared button up and my gemstone statement necklace.  I was going to wear this with neutral ankle booties, but when I added the black sweater my instincts said to add more black.   So midnight platform pumps it is.  Some fall trends to watch for that I encompassed here are camouflage and  statement necklaces!  Happy Hump Day (in my camel voice)!

WG Offers Personal Styling Services…Will Travel!

Good Saturday to you fine ladies and gentlemen.  I hope this post finds you in happy spirits and sexy shoes!  I am personally walking fine on cloud 9 after a great lunch with esteemed Image Consultant Elizabeth Rouprich of Visually Appealing LLC and am excited to announce that Whimsington Gardens will be sitting down to pick her well-coiffed brain next week for some Q&A!  I’ll be bringing you up close and personal information from a seasoned industry vet along with some great tips to incorporate into your own repertoire.  In keeping with the the theme of consultation, I’d like to remind you guys that I also offer personal styling services in a variety of packages.  Check out my selection here.  I’m located in Charlotte, NC currently but can and will happily travel!

Did someone say trends?  It’s no big surprise that denim is going to be hot for fall as I’m pretty sure it has been since Mr.Strauss himself hit the trouser lotto, but I was actually impressed with the more refined version of wide-legged jeans that are popping up in fashion reports from around the globe.  I’ll be copping mine and pairing them with body suits, platform boots and modernly minimalist makeup for fall.

This pair is by MiH jeans.  Keep your eyes “wide” open for this one.  Stay fab, guys and gals.  Until next time…xoxo, KatieG

Versace Fashion Face-Off (Soundtrack Included)

Versace Fashion Face-Off (Soundtrack Included)

I’m willing to bet this 3peat caused some major embarrassment for the fellas at last Sunday’s BET awards. DJ Drama, Brandon T. Jackson and J Cole all graced the red carpet in the same Versace sweatshirt…at the same event! If it were me, I’d have stripped down to my undershirt immediately and called it fashion forward. Now all that’s left for us to do is to decide..who rocked it best? My vote is for J Cole (in the middle)…I like his shoes and chain the best. DJ Drama (left) took it a little to casual with his jeans, sneakers and cap. On the other end of the spectrum, Brandon (far right) was too dressy in his church shoes. J Cole struck the right balance and gets the WG stamp of approval! Now it’s your turn, sexy readers…vote up.

Oh, and make sure to play this new track by Drake while you deliberate your tough decision. An ode to Versace…I’d make it these 3’s ringtone.
