October 2014
A Message from Mary Lou Andre

mla fall2012 150X186Fall is well underway here at Organization By Design, Inc. Our consultants are busy working with their private clients to organize and enhance their wardrobes and personal style, and our fall workshop and speaking schedule is in high gear. A warm welcome to all of our new email subscribers whom we have met on the road (and in various closets!) this past September.

Our popular Top Ten fall fashion picks for women is our featured article this month. For men, the October Q&A addresses some handy tips to review before shopping for dress shirts. We hope that a few of our tips will resonate with you and make it easy to add some fresh style to your wardrobe.

From all of us at Organization By Design, Inc., here's to Dressing Well. We look forward to an opportunity to work with you.

  Top Ten Fall Fashion Picks for Women

  #1 Shades of Gray
Always a cool weather favorite. Pair your grays with navy, camel and chocolate for a fresh twist.


#2 Green with Envy
Pop your wardrobe with this cool primary color. It's a standout way to update your look.


#3 The Sophisticated Track Pant
Kick the bottom half of your wardrobe up a notch with this stylish silhouette. Pointed-toe heels and flats ground the look nicely.

#4 The Modern Jumpsuit
Every age group can celebrate this retro throw back. It makes dressing easy and just plain fun.


#5 Fall Florals
Think big and bold to balance out pairing them with heavier fabrics and footwear.

Forgiving, stylish and warm. Pair with boots, booties, tights and a variety of belts and jewelry for signature style.

#7 Open-Toe Booties
Upgrade your boot collection with this transitional weather footwear choice. Add tights when it gets cold!


#8 The Crop Top
A repeat from spring that is still going strong! Layer camis, shirts and tees underneath when you don't want to be overexposed.

  crop tops  

#9 The Bare Neckline
Let an interesting neckline on a garment be your accessory. Enhance the effect with a strong earring, bracelet and/or belt.

#10 The Bucket Bag
For those that already have a good assortment of totes, clutches, shoulder and string bags! It's an "A list" item that can still be found at a variety of price points.
