How to Wednesday! Finger Free Fashions!

Three little shop girls lost their mittens and they began to cry....

Oh, BTF dear, we sadly fear that we have lost our mittens"....
....What? Lost you're mittens? Well, we are glad we have a shop nearby!

Fingerless gloves are all the rave. Why you may say? There is a method to the madness:

1. Finger Free! Let the phone RING!
While the temps are cold outside, I find it hard to pull off the gloves every time I need to send a quick text or make a phone call. Fingerless gloves provide a toasty way of keeping those fingertips free!

2. A Splash of Color!
Wearing nothin but neutrals!? What a perfect way to add a touch of color & perfect way to highlight an outfit! Or flip flop it with the white above when your outfit carries the color!


3. Fashion Forward!
Leg warmers and fingerless gloves do serve great purpose, but of course they are also fashionable and add new flare! Try layering with arm warmers or pull into an outfit...Make people turn their heads. You are a fashion diva....own it! I adore these new mittens with a bow.

What!? Found your mittens?.......now, you shall have some pie!

ENJOY LADIES! ALL MITTENS ARE ONLY $12!!!!!

How To Wednesday! Rock those leg warmers!

The most commonly asked question this season at Bags That Fit is: How do I wear these leg warmers?? Well ladies...NEVER FEAR! BTF shop girls are HERE!



Welcome back leg warmers! Here are a few rules to keep you stylin and comfy cozy this winter.

Rule 1: NO NEON. The 80's were fun and though leg warmers have made a come back remember to keep it fashion forward. When choosing a leg warmer stick with neutrals and warm colors: Black, grey, brown, cream, warm red, plum & blue. Also, make sure the texture isnt too bulky. This is also extremely important if you want to minimize your calves. Bright colors are fun but have been known to make your calves look bigger. Esp. when wearing with a skinny jean. They are more bulky then tights and leggings so neutrals are ideal.

***Important Tip*** When tucking into boots... DO NOT choose a heavy texture and the rule is to let them peak out 2-6 inches.
Rule 2: Wear with tights & leggings. For those of you that love to wear skirts and dresses this is a great option to keep your legs toasty. Make sure they are below your knee and you pull partly over the heel of your shoe....also OK to wear with flats. Rule 3: If you are going to wear over your shoes with skinnies....DO NOT wear a tall boot! Wear an ankle boot. OR
You will risk looking like this! Notice how bulky...and how those bright bold colors are just a little too much!
Rule 4: For something a little less casual and more sophisticated you'll love our lace boot socks. Great with skirts, over leggings....
or over denim....

Rule 5: Have fun with your own personal style! Trust yourself, add your own twist and you can never go wrong!

How To Wednesday.....say "cheers" in style. Holiday must haves.

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style....the streets are rockin holiday fashion and so should you!

Must Have Basics:

1. Neutrals and Sparkle! My favorite place this time of year is NYC. The smell of candy nuts, the hustle and bustle and best of all the holiday windows! This year windows were not full of bright red and green holiday wear but robust with neutrals! Nude shear colors are perfect on skin tones and easy to mix with a pop of color! Keep in mind: gold, silver, winter white and blush. Below is a great top with just enough sparkle. Sparkle is important...but be careful of not too much. Keep it simple!


***Bonus Tip*** RECYCLE! Remember that hot black blazer in your closet? Before shopping check your closet first! You may already have a great basic!

2. A Fabulous Dress, Cardi & Bling! Though a basic black cocktail dress is classic, switch it up with lace and your new neutral flare! Throw on a cute cardi for a pop of color, and as always dress it up with pearls or sparkly jewels.
3. A Great Coat. A little mustard anyone!? A coat with a bold color will always turn some heads.

4. Whimsical Scarf. A scarf not only keeps you comfy and warm...it also serves as a wonderful accessory. Grab a scarf with flare! It can turn a dull sweater into a fantastic top! It also eliminates the need to wear other accessories. A perfect way to make a statement!

5. Fantastic Fingerless Gloves. Now these, for me, are a MUST HAVE! I love how they keep my hands toasty but I still have the ability to text on my iPhone! Great for those of you who have touch screens!

We hope these tips help lessen your wardrobe worries this holiday season. Our shop girls at BTF are always happy to help put together something perfect just for you. But remember your beautiful face is really what your friends and family want to see!

Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season!

Much Love,

The Girls at Bags That Fit

HOW TO tips and tricks to organize your closet

How to have an organized closet? I'm so glad you asked!
Let's get right down to business, shall we?!

Often overlooked but definitely the most important "how to" of the "how to" is the hanger. Wooden hangers are the most kind to your clothing, plus it makes your closet look just a tid bit prettier. Throw out all those wire and cheap plastic hangers!
Oh the ever pressing question of how to store your favorite pair of boots. Well, ladies I've found the solution. Grab your favorite 2liter bottle and shove it, in your boot. This helps them stand up and you can line all your boots up in a row. No more will your boots be laying down and taking up so much room in your closet!

What to do with all those extra buttons? Find a cute container and keep it in your closet. Then when you get an extra button you have a place to store it and when you loose a button from your favorite top, you know where to find it.

Now you've found that missing button, what do you do? Sew it back on! Put together a mini sewing kit that is stored in your closet. This makes repairing clothing or sewing a button back on, a snap.
Purchase a small ironing board like this one (I found it at Ikea) with a hanger. It takes up minimal space and makes for a fast ironing job.
In a rush and don't have time to break out the iron? Your flat iron will work in a pinch! I've used it for many a ruffle and a much needed pressed hem.
What to do with all your handbags? A pursehanger of course! This little beauty frees up so much shelf space in my closet. Find yours at simplysarahshaw.com. It's great for scarves and belts too!
Speaking of belts and scarves...I like to use a panthanger. I found this one at Target and it's a great space saver! I can see all my belts and scarves which makes them so much easier to find, then if they were thrown in a basket or drawer.
Try these few tips and see how much more organized your closet can become! Do you have a favorite tip? Oh, please do share!

Color Blocking Fashion Tips

We've all heard about The color blocking Trend...
what is it and how do I wear it?
Good question! Here are a few hints and tips.
Simply put, color blocking is wearing more than one bright color at a time. It's not a trend that most women embrace for fear that they won't be able to pull it off or they are unsure how to wear it and how to combine the colors. One wrong move can put you in either box, so you must be careful. It's about colors that complement your eye color and/or skin tone.

Pick colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel like yellow, orange-yellow, and orange, or for a more subtle contrast try aqua and blue. If you're more adventurous, you can try bolder mixes, like orange and blue.
Color blocking combines the use of two or more blocks of colour in an ensemble. This could be for a top, bottom, tunic, a dress and even a handbag or shoes. Simply it means – creating an outfit by putting areas or blocks of solid color next to each other. It can include monotone, bright colours, muted colors, contrasting and complimentary colors. Clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories can all feature color block designs or can make up different blocks of color to be put together for a color block outfit.
By staying on the same side of the color wheel, pink and orange together are at the same time contrasting and stunning.

In this photo yellow and blue are a bolder choice color scheme. If you're not daring enough to pull off the entire outfit, start out with a bright contrasting handbag or shoe. You don't have to jump in completely, start with baby steps until you understand how to blend the colors together.

Hopefully, with these tips you'll be wearing this popular trend in no time. What are your favorite ways to wear the color blocking trend?

How to layer a top 3 different ways

Worn by itself, the dusty pink top is darling, but here we show you how to layer and add texture and color.

Dusty pink top is adorable by itself. We layered a basic layering tee under it for more coverage and added a vintage owl pocket watch for a touch of detail. The dark wash kensie denim is perfect for fall.

Want to add another layer? Top off the Dusty pink top with our adorable ruffle cardigan in grey.
Finally spruce it up with a bright pop of color belt. The belt helps to bring out the colors in the top.
