From her pink pumps, marble flooring, and crystal chandelier lighting this closet is a “glamorous dream.”

Mariah gave us a glimpse into her fashionable world when she shared photos of her wardrobe.  I think every woman aspires to have a beautifully, well organized closet simply because it allows us to find our items, mix and match, and care for our precious clothing.



This closet is amazing and the photos (in this post) prove: all that glitters is gold!

The Coveteur features Style Icon Rachel Zoe’s Personal Closet: New Year Inspiration

While catching up on one of my favorite fashion blogs The Coveteur I ran across style icon Rachel Zoe’s personal closet.

If you’re fashion obsessed such as myself, you generally love anything that’s associated with the “Zoe” brand.

Rachel Zoe is not only witty but she’s super talented and surrounds herself with a dedicated team.  I think there’s something to be learned (from her) by anyone who’s aspiring to work in the fashion industry.


Because we are bringing in a New Year with fresh goals and aspirations, this is the perfect time to organize our closets.  Come on ladies, it’s time to let go of that old sweater and suede boots from three years ago!

In honor of fashion girls who are bringing in the new year with style, I want to feature a few of our favorite celebrity closets.  Hopefully the photos will inspire us all to get “get rid of old clutter!”

How to Clean Shearling Boots: A Winter Must Do!

I was doing my usual drop off at the dry cleaners when I noticed a sign stating, “We clean Ugg boots.”  This sign stood out to me because I own a pair of shearling boots and after last year’s “wear and tear” there was a big stain on the top of my boots.

As a frugal person, I had no plans of getting rid of my favorite winter boots.  But most importantly, my boots are super comfortable and perfect for running errands with my boys.  I decided (at that moment) to drop off my boots at the local dry cleaners.


The guy at the dry cleaners explained the process for how they are cleaned.  He stated, “we send them out…they get cleaned…and they’re repainted.”  I felt like it was worth trying because ultimately, my boots needed to be cleaned and I was looking forward to wearing them.  After two weeks, I picked up my boots and they looked pretty good.

The dry cleaners even placed them in a white shoe box and stuffed them with pink tissue paper (which made me smile.)  I wanted to share my experience because how many times have we purchased a pair of shearling boots and never have them cleaned.

I also found an article on Pinterest giving us steps on how to clean them at home; the steps listed below are originally from

1. Use cold water to lightly moisten the outside of the boots only. Do not submerge them in water.

2. Dilute a cleaner appropriate for leather to form a solution of one part cleaner and one part water.

3. Apply solution to a wet sponge and gently clean boots’ outer surface. Rinse with clean sponge dipped in cold water.

4. Stuff boots with paper towels or newspaper to hold shape and dry out of direct sunlight or direct heat. Direct sunlight or heat will cause shrinkage.

5. Brush boots with a suede brush or lint-free towel to restore the nap.

I encourage anyone, before you decide to discard your favorite boots, take them to the dry cleaners or remove the stain yourself.  After all, they’re comfortable, cute, and well worth the extra care!

Trench coats, leather, winter white, red lipstick, big Texas hair, over the knee and thigh high boots.  Winter is known to be a Fabulous girls favorite season (besides fall) because you can layer which keeps you warm and you can also play with different prints which will always keep you fashionable and unique in style.

Street regal, high fashion, heavy glam and polished. Lipstick, lip gloss, BANGLES and chunky gold jewelry…. They’re my weaknesses! And my “Crowned Q” signature earrings.

The purpose of this month’s box, is to “kick out old conventions and celebrate you.”  How perfect is that as we celebrate the New Year.

It’s really important during the winter months to take care of yourself and keep your skin hydrated.

I look forward to using every product but my absolute favorite is the Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion because I suffer from dry skin.  I even caught my husband carrying my new lotion in his coat pocket!

Tai Beauchamp Interview: Hair, Product, and Style Tips for Enjoying The Holiday Season

Style Life Fashion had the opportunity to chat with beauty and style expert, Tai Beauchamp.  She shared with us a few hair, product, and style tips for women during the holiday season.

I enjoyed speaking with Tai and listening to her suggestions! Our initial conversation started as an interview but concluded with a “girlfriends” chat about things we love: such as metallic shoes, statement necklaces, and the importance of maintaining healthy hair.

Tai’s not only a stylista but she’s also a Celebrity Ambassador for Target’s ” A Bullseye View” campaign; helping women look and feel their best this holiday season. We hope that you enjoy, like, and use the tips provided through the interview shown below!

What are some tips that women can use to look their best this holiday season?

Number one, this is a good time to try something new! Go out with a bang because you want to start the new year…with a bang. A great suggestion is to switch up your hair but women can also dress up their little black dress by adding statement jewels. By wearing statement jewels, this is a great way to save money on your wardrobe.

When we talk about hair, jazz it up by going from texture to straight, or vice versa. During the winter months, it’s important to keep the hair hydrated and conditioned. Some really great products to use are Mixed Chicks, Leave In Conditioner (at Target.) It’s a lightweight conditioner for all textures. Lastly, don’t forget to try Hair Rules product for hydrating your hair.

What are some style trends that we should know when preparing for a Holiday Party?

Anything that’s metallic is one of the hottest trends whether for the holiday or upcoming spring season. Also, we can’t leave out anything with studs, whether it’s dresses, skirts, sweaters, metal chains are very hot. In addition, consider buying a metallic blouse or metallic pumps (shoes are big) and pumps are back! They are hot, hot, hot, for the holiday season because they make a look appear pulled together.

Can you provide a list of products that women of all hair types can use to maintain their tresses during the holiday rush?

Mixed Chicks, Leave In Conditioner and Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner. The holiday season is also a time to do something new and to also treat yourself. While you’re relaxing in a long bath this is the perfect time to deep conditioner your hair. Use Shea Moisture products and let it sit there.  For relaxed hair and problems with “fly aways” the Twisting Butter from Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter helps to create textures. Another fabulous trick you can do at home is to give yourself a deep conditioning with Olive Oil right from your pantry.  The foundation for gorgeous hair is healthy hair and hair gets drier in the winter months.

Are there any additional tips that you want to leave with us?

The key to enjoying the holiday season is to celebrate life; when we talk about celebrating you want to make sure your hair is fabulous, outfit fierce, perspective’s centered around love, friendship, and family.  No one thing stands alone but most importantly have a fabulous attitude!
