Fashionable quotes

Hello all, it’s been a while I posted on here. However, I have been pretty active on Instagram (so make sure to follow @mystylepad for more of my style musings).

A couple weeks ago, I posted this quote on Instagram and it’s has gotten quite a lot of likes so I decided to post it on here. What comes to your mind when you see this quote?

Fashion rules

For me, when I first decided to get serious with my style, I really had to spend some time learning the rules and knowing the fashion game. But I quickly found that some of the rules could be broken. No fashion rule is universal and would not always work for everyone. So for me, this quote simply means…you have to know the rules to play the game, but winning at the game means some rules will have to be broken.

What does the quote mean to you? I really really want to know. Please sound off in the comments section below.

Building a tops closet

Have you ever looked through your closet and noticed all your tops/blouses look exactly alike – no variety. It seems you have the same style and shape in different colors. The reason for this is that most people fall into the trap of buying a good fitting shirt in all the colors they can find; because good-fitting tops are hard to come by these days.

However if your closet has similar tops, getting dressed everyday becomes really boring. Eventually, you will begin to feel like you don’t have enough clothes, even though you have tons of tops (all in the same style).

One of the ways to maximize your closet is to have a variety of tops that can each be paired with a variety of bottoms. And by tops I mean everything – blouses, shirts, t-shirts, camis, sweaters and the list goes on.

If you are re-building your closet like I did a couple years ago, here are a few basics you can start off with:
