This week is all about ruffles!

I'm going to show you two ways to wear this new spring/summer Zara jumpsuit for both the day and night. Today is all about daytime wears. Check out how a pair of fashionable sneakers and a cute jacket can switch up your look and make this "girly" trend a little edgier.

I'm bringing back my Edie's Closet Courtyard Chronicles!

If you have been following the blog or have checked out some of my past style posts, you'll notice most of them are in my courtyard. Its a quiet, easy space with great brick so it works well with most of my lewks! This edition is featuring my favorite velvet grey dress, layered up for the daytime.

Valentine's Day is tomorrow and to get into the ROMANTIC spirit I'm spotlighting the extraordinary artist, Kerry James Marshall. I was lucky enough to make his latest exhibition - MASTRY at the Met Breuer that ended last month.  




All of Marshall's work is powerful, vibrant and hits on many social and racial topics, which are all thought provoking and honestly beautiful to look at but his images of #BlackLove are really what kept my eye.




Especially this image of Harriet Tubman's wedding photo. This latest exhibit at the MET Breuer in NYC ended on January 29th but you can catch Mastry at it's next stop -- Art Muse Los Angeles starting April 8th. If you have seen the exhibit or have any favorite Kerry James Marshall pieces let me know below.

Until next time lovers!!

I'm all about texture and color so when I found these Impo stretch blue velvet booties at DSW I couldn't walk away. They are the perfect pop of color that can easily blend into any look and I can rock during any season.


Another reason I LOVE these boots, they are super affordable! There are many options out there but some of these velvet booties put some pressure on the purse strings and if you're like me and shopping on a budget these Impo boots are perfect for you.



These boots were made for walking and that's literally what I did while doing this shoot so I can give a fair and unbiased opinion on comfort. Let me know below your thoughts and any of your favorite boots for the season.

It's coming up roses!!

I have scoured the internet, Googled top face creams and masks, read both beauty editor's and Sephora reviews trying to find the right beauty products and you know where it got me? Even more confused than when I started. The truth is there are so many different products out there and everyone's skin type is so different the options will drive you crazy! But after many samples and a truck load of trial and error I think I've found the perfect regimen and hopefully this is helpful to you too.

It all came down to ROSES. No really! Roses have had major beauty benefits for thousands of years. What I already knew: This delicate flower is the epitome of luxury. What I didn't know is how beneficial it is for my skin from toning, soothing (anti-inflammatory), moisturizing and of course nice and fragrant. Also it pretty much works for all skin tones.


So I ended up getting a gorgeous bottle of Measurable Difference Rose Hip Oil that is filled with vitamin E and C that I absolutely love using every morning. It's a great scent and it keeps my face, neck and shoulders moisturized all day.


Now side note: I have oily skin ESPECIALLY in the summer. My face literally melts so I wear close to nothing during the warm months.


A quick tip to others in my boat you can totally still use oils they are amazing moisturizers, cleansers, etc but just avoid the T-Zone (the forehead and bridge of your nose). Also you don't need a lot, I use up to three drops for everything.




I've upgraded and updated the site! I realized that Edie's Closet needed to come into 2017 with a new look and attitude. So thanks to pipdig I was able to give her a cute face lift!

Keep checking back for new surprises!



I'm taking over the USA! Well, not really but I am all about visiting different places and somehow Texas was on that list. I have a friend who recently relocated there for work so I thought there's no better time to cross Houston off my bucket list!
