Ways to incorporate simple luxury into your wardrobe

As a personal stylist I take great pleasure in adding simple luxuries into my clients’ wardrobes as well as my own. Shannon has showed us on this fabulous blog that simple luxuries don’t have to cost a fortune; it really is the small things in life that can make a huge difference.I would like to share with you several simple ways you can make your wardrobe feel more luxurious.


Proper Undergarments  

 Take the time to access your bra and underwear drawer. Do they make you feel glamorous? Support and complement your figure? If not, toss it! You should be buying the type of undergarments that make you feel good. Mix & match fun prints or lace. Don’t feel the need to scrimp or buy dull colors just because they are hiding under your clothes. You’ll start every day off on the right foot by adding this simple luxury.

A Great Pair of Shoes 

 Every gal should own a fun pair of heels (or flats, if heels are just not your thing). Personally, wearing a great pair of heels adds simple luxury to my day. They can be thrown on to take my outfit up a notch. Whatever the color or style, adding a great pair of shoes to your wardrobe will make a dull day at the office a little more exciting.

Signature Scent  

Whether it’s a lotion, body splash or perfume, find your signature scent and wear it daily. I loathe when people tell me they are saving their perfumes for a “special occasion”. EVERY DAY is a special occasion! There is nothing like catching a hint of your signature scent in the middle of the day to put a smile on your face.

Cozy, yet Chic Sleepwear 



There is nothing we look forward to more than throwing on our pajamas and getting under the covers after a long day. I bet 85% of you are wearing sweatpants and oversized T-shirts to bed. Why not treat yourself to a pair or two of comfortable flannel pajamas in a cute print? Or how about a chic pajama dress for the warmer months? When you look put together, you feel put together. I believe we should feel good about ourselves all the time, even if we are just going to bed.After reading this post I guarantee you will become more mindful of the pieces you keep or bring into your wardrobe.

{Not long into my venture of blogging I was fortunate to be introduced to personal stylist Tiffani Rogers of Accidental Chic and Living Chic.  Ever since I have enjoyed becoming more aware of a woman’s financial prowess, and how it cannot be separated from a stylish life. I also enjoy following her via Twitter as she takes in New York Fashion Weeks each season.  She is a woman who is passionate about fabulous style and shares her advice in a manner that is welcoming and enlightening to everyone whether you are a fashionista or simply want to look presentable. It is my pleasure to welcome her to The Simply Luxurious Life.}

Wow, those high heels hooes are the tallest I have ever seen.

I agree February 14, 2011

With a postive yes to the perfume suggestion. Why wait for that special day when everyday is special and you can remind yourself that this day is unique and blissful with your fragrant reminder.

Wink. Wink.

If only I had the money to splurge a little.

If you do not splurge on yourself you will never splurge.
