Golden Globes Favorites

Hollywood royalty were in full glam tonight on the red carpet.  Here are our Golden Globes favorites.  There were several fashion fails from a few of our favorite fashionistas, but we decided not to mention them because we know that they will redeem themselves at the next star-studded spectacular.

Streamline Your Closet in 2017

Here’s how it works.

I challenge you to streamline your closet in 2017.  Pick a day that’s coming up soon that you’ll remember like New Years, Presidents’ Day, April Fool’s Day, or your birthday. When that day arrives, turn all your hangers backward in your closet. There, that’s it.

Well, not quite. Each time you wear something, hang it back up the right way – not backwards. And voila! After 12 months you can tell at a glance what you haven’t worn for a whole year. Look at all those backward hangers. Then be brutally honest. If you haven’t worn it the past year, do you really think you’ll wear it the next year? Probably not, so pass it along to your local charity and let someone in need enjoy it.

Of course, this doesn’t work with those few things that you need, but not often. For example, you might have a few party clothes such as an evening gown or a tuxedo. You know that you may wear only them once every few years, but they are handy to have when the need arises.

For the rest of your clothes, if the hanger is still backward after a full year, it’s a good bet that it’s time to pass the garment along. There, wasn’t that painless?

Friday Five With MODAGE Style

It’s no secret that we adore the cooler months, especially Fall.  Fall is the season for layering and truly makes any outfit more interesting. When the temperature drops, layering is the key to looking stylish.  A perfectly layered look will compliment your curves and create the illusion of a more proportional silhouette.  We’ve rounded up our Friday Five With MODAGE Style layered looks that we plan to recreate in the coming weeks.

The Genius New Way to Wear a Scarf This Fall via @WhoWhatWear:

Style Tip:  Keep the under layers fitted to ensure a slimming silhouette.

End of Summer Fun: Brooklyn Flea & AfroPunk

We took a mental break over the weekend for a little end of the summer fun at the Brooklyn Flea & AfroPunk in Brooklyn!  I spent a few hours at the Brooklyn Flea on Sunday and scored so many fabulous finds.  The flea market is held every Sunday in Dumbo and features quality vendors of furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles and antiques.  A few of my favorite vintage vendors who exhibit at the Manhattan Vintage Show exhibit at the Sunday Flea Market as well.  One in particular, had the most amazing vintage wide leg pantsuit that I scored for $40.  The pantsuit reminds me of something Willona Woods would have rocked on Good Times, yaaaas!

The highlight of my NYC solo weekend trip was finding these three vintage albums at the Brooklyn Flea. Jazz music, in particular John Coltrane soothes the soul.  Thrifting and vintage shopping in New York is our favorite pastime, and we are currently finalizing the logistics for the Modage Style Holiday Inspired Fashion Bus Tour right before Christmas!

While in Brooklyn, I was able to reserve the most immaculate brownstone compliments of Airbnb and my hostess Ms. Verna was the absolute best.

Prior to stopping by AfroPunk, I visited SoCo in Brooklyn for a quick bite and the food was delicious.  I opted for the Clinton Hill Omelette with White Cheddar Grits and a Hibiscus Margarita.  The vibe was chill, the music was amazing and the service was stellar.

This was my first Afro Punk experience and I definitely plan to return next year.  The personal style was truly on another level.

Fun times with my sister-in-fashion Selina Howard of Vainglorious Brides.

My entire look was snagged while resale shopping (except my sandals).

I adore my custom Ankh and Cowrie Shell rings by Enoch The Jeweler of Those Brothers Jewelry at AfroPunk.

Such an epic weekend and Janelle Monáe had the crowd groovin’.  This was the perfect end of summer fun and Brooklyn was such a great host.
