My Sister's Closet
This holiday season My Sister's Closet is showing how everyone's holiday staple - the LBD (Little Black Dress), can take you from a trip to the grocery store to a fabulous holiday party. It's one dress, five ways - the perfect way to be ready for any occasion this busy holiday season. This Blaque Label black dress, only $34.95 at My Sister's Closet, will take you anywhere.
Running Around Town
With the holiday season comes tons of shopping - from picking up groceries for a delicious meal to buying presents for your family, and of course stopping by My Sister's Closet for some amazing designer fashion finds.
Style it with an adorable knit sweater, like this Yaya Aflalo sweater for only $14.95, to stay warm in the mornings. Pair it with these comfortable Yohji Yamamoto red shoes for $195.00 (retailed for $400) that won't slow down a woman on the run and this STM cross body bag for $14.95 to hold all of your shopping lists and daily necessities.
Working Through the Day
For a busy career woman, this take on the LBD is great for the office or even if your job takes you away from your desk. In the mad rush to tie up loose ends before the end of the year and of course the excitement of time off for the holidays, this outfit is perfect for any woman on the go.
Layer a collared blouse, like this white Elizabeth and James top for $44.95, under your classic LBD to give it a more structured feel. Top it with a whimsical tie, like this Penguin tie for $14.95, to show off some personality and throw on a cute jacket, like this one from Babette for $99.95 (retailed for $495), to take off the chill from the winter weather. And for accessories? These Gucci black shoes for $145.00 (retailed for $550) keep the outfit comfortable, but classic. And off-set this classic look with a bright statement bag, like this Reed Krakoff handbag for $795.00 (retailed for $1,700).
Racing to the Holidays
Have Thanksgiving dinner with your family? Brunch on Christmas morning? A holiday get-together with friends? Holiday celebrations always provide a great reason to dress-up and show off your style.
Pull in the traditional holiday red to spice up an outfit that can easily take you from picking up a list minute gift to racing straight to a family gathering.
This great Moschino plaid jacket, only $44.95, is a great addition to your LBD and instantly makes the outfit perfect for the holidays, and show off your waist by adding a cute belt, like this Moschino one for $34.95.
Finish off the look with this beautiful red and black Love Moschino handbag for $99.95 (retailed for $1,000) and these Miu Miu pumps for $79.95 (retailed for $750).
Meeting Up with the Girls
Thanks to Arizona's warmer winter weather going sleeveless for the holidays isn't out of the question. For a night out with your girls keep it chic and monochromatic.
A great way to dress for fall in Arizona, this sleeveless turtleneck top by Malo for $44.95 adds a wintery edge to your LBD. Nip in your waist and accessorize all at the same time with this Ralph Lauren belt for $17.50. Add this beautiful Daniele Alessandrini handbag for $49.95 and Jeffrey Campbell booties for $39.95 to finish the look.
Don't forget the jewelry! Put on a cute cuff and a bowtie, like the ones pictured for only $14.95 and $12.50 to be the envy of all of your friends at happy hour.
Office parties, Christmas gatherings, New Year's - tis the season for parties!
Let the jewelry do the taking with this party look. Dress up your LBD with a statement necklace like these BeBe strands of pearls for $44.95 and add a fun cocktail ring like this one by KJL for $59.95.
Bring a small bag that holds only the essentials - lipstick, wallet and keys, like this one by Beverly Feldman for $34.95 and slip into a pair of strappy, patent shoes like these Ralph Lauren heels for $125.00.

Gnome for the Holidays
Minimalism is in - downsize and go miniature this year with your holiday decorations! These cute mini gnmoes and creatures create a magical, festive feel in any home! Keep it small and shop for a 4" to 12" mini Charlie Brown Christmas tree or old world greenery, perfect for any home! A Little DIY can take you a long way - find a cute container, empty paint can, shopping bag, coffee can or garden pot to plant your tiny tree.
Owl Be Home for Christmas
If you're feeling a little more glam than woodsy consider pastel feather trees. Display these fun trees on a coffee table or end table, they can even double as a centerpiece for dinner. Use faux snow blankets, gumballs or mini marshmallows to fill in the space around the tree for whimsical feel. A touch of moss and a tree topper help finish the look.
An Enchanted Christmas
A fun and easy alternative to the traditional wreath is to create a cute, custom sign for your front door. Make a quick trip to the hardware store, pick up a few cedar planks and you're on your way to a great looking, old world sign. Plus, the smell of cedar is a great way to welcome visitors coming to your home! Hang it up or prop it up on the side of the door with moss and pine cones. A fun family craft, let the kids do the letters to give it a loose, free and authentic feel.
Come up with text that can match your décor or is just fun: Enchanted Christmas, Gnome for the Holidays, Welcome to Our House, the list of possibilities is endless!
Perfect for a holiday party backdrop or to spruce up your entryway, create an enchanted forest right here in the desert. Wintertime evokes memories of skiing through tall aspen trees and blankets of white snow on the mountains. Recreate it yourself with an outdoor winter scene that doesn't require you to leave your home.
Use long, vertical pieces of plywood to paint a simple scene of aspen trees using black and white paint. Create several shades of gray for your trees by mixing different amounts of the paint. Paint the trees on using a 2" and 4" roller, and then add in detail with a small brush to create shading and detail.
Place white velvet or faux snow below the painted trees to complete the wintery scenes and if you're feeling extra festive you can drill holes into the plywood and insert mini lights to light up the scene.

When popular magazines talk about dressing for the summer heat, they probably aren't talking Arizona HOT. It is hot enough to bake delicious cookies in your car while at work and melt your favorite lipstick in minutes. When it tops 110 or higher it can be enough to make anyone question how to stay cool. Here at My Sister's Closet, Arizona's favorite Consignment shop, we have some tips/advice to dress in the heat for work/play/weekend:
ALL ABOUT THE DRESS: We love the idea of chic shirt dresses, they are super easy and professional. This Akris shirt dress for $59.95 is on point or this floral sleeveless one from Opening Ceremony for $59.95.
SHOW SOME SKIN: Unless you are working at a law office, in finance or another industry with a strict dress code, wearing a tasteful sleeveless top to work is totally appropriate. Be sure to always keep a sweater or jacket with you for that sometimes frigid A/C. This Kate Spade, size medium floral top for $59.95 is as cute as can be, or this simple orange top from Brunelli Cuccinelli works perfect.
FREE FLOW: Tight fitting clothing might look good other days of the year, but the sweat marks on your back won't look good any day of the year. This Chan Luu dress for $69.95 at our Scottsdale store is just perfect or this Lorenzo Antoniazzi green cotton dress for $89.95.
Lounging by the pool is a great way to stay cool. In July we shelter under the shade or just stay in the pool for hours on end. Make sure to have a hat and sunnies on hand at all times, that sun can be fierce.
This Emilio Pucci graphic one piece is just $69.95, paired with an open knit cover up from Kaktus for $12.50, sunglasses from Marc by Marc Jacobs for $39.95, Betsey Johnson hat for $12.50, Stuart Weitzman sandals for $24.95 and Kate Spade straw bag for $89.95. All at our Lincoln Village store: 480-443-4575.
WEAR SUNSCREEN/DRINK WATER: Seems like an obvious tip, but as chic as your summer wardrobe might be, sunscreen and water will keep you looking young and feeling great. We love tinted moisturizers such as Neutrogena's Healthy Skin tinted moisturizer And this Hydro Flask water bottle will keep your fluids cool all day long even in your hot car (seriously we tried it) and they come in lots of cute colors.

Ah, Coachella - the land of the free, home to the wanderers with flower crowns adorned on shiny golden locks, Woodstock-era clothing and festival-goers who want to get lost in the tunes. But what’s a festival without some fashion? We checked in on one of our employees, Stephanie. She is a Coachella alumni (she’s gone nine times!) and attended this year to experience the fashion, the music and everything in between. Check out some of her looks from Weekend 1 - all from My Sister’s Closet!
Despite the somewhat tricky weather, Stephanie rocked some adorable, distressed high-waisted shorts ($9.95) paired with a perforated Free People off the shoulder top ($24.95) - a trending favorite. She finished off the look with rugged Jeffrey Campbell boots ($49.95) and layers of her own jewelry.
On Sunday, she wanted to go for a more boho-comfy look and wore a bold Free People floral maxi skirt ($34.95) styled with a white Max Mara crop top ($34.95), delicate gold jewelry and topped it off with a Free People hat ($17.50). Finished off with this fab teal Rebecca Minkoff bag ($79.95)!

Fashion lovers rejoice - we’ve checked out the best trends from the spring runways that are practical enough for you to rock everyday, while incorporating your own personal flair. From oversized florals to statement-making 70’s style flares and bare shoulders here are the must-have styles you should try this spring.
Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu and Givenchy all showcased flirty, off the shoulder tops that make for the perfect Coachella-inspired ensemble. Not only did we see them on tops, but shirts, dresses and even coats - making it the perfect choice for transitioning from daytime to evening. Pair a ruffle off the shoulder top with a maxi skirt and some embellished booties for a killer ensemble.
Alright ladies, it’s time to stash away those skinnies and bust out the flares and wide-legs. Both Alice & Olivia and Coach showcased a 70’s revival with boho-looks straight from Woodstock - including the resurgence of denim flares. It’s the new silhouette of the season, so why not pair some wide leg jeans with a loose-fitted top and a blazer for a sophisticated, polished look.
Florals, florals, florals everywhere! This season we’re still ogling over Spanish-roused details like oversized florals done in a dreamy abstract way that we’re spotted on the runways in Milan - including, floor-length maxi dresses at Dolce & Gabbana and decadent pastels at Blumarine. Try pairing a matching floral blazer and cropped pants for a ladylike, tailored look.
