Oprah is cleaning out her closet and giving fashionable fans, first dibs on her designer duds – via eBay!  In this next chapter, Oprah will be cleaning out her soon-to-be demolished Harpo Studios in Chicago and donating hundreds of pieces from the last 25 years of her tv closet on eBay.

Standing in her 19-by-26-foot closet, she had tons of help from her bestie Gayle King and her creative director, Adam Glassman came to supervise. Fashion editor Jenny Capitain and stylist Kelly Hurliman were on hand to organize the pieces Oprah wants to keep and the pieces she’s letting go of.


Oprah eBay Auction


“You know, Adam [Glassman was] the one who made me realize I was holding on to clothes that were all about a dream I had for myself, said Oprah. “I chose them for this idea I’d gotten into my head of how someone like me was supposed to live, but they had nothing to do with my actual life. And that changed me!”


Oprah eBay Auction


The Oprah eBay auction is slated to be filled with designer shoes, handbags, coats, jackets, dresses and more.

Lady O pulled out this bright coral blazer and said, “I just don’t need all this intense color, the embellishment, the heels anymore. When you’re in front of TV cameras every day, you have to stand out, but I’m in a different place now, and those things no longer serve me.”

#StyleHack – The Modern Girl’s Guide To Thrifted Style With Dryel

January 15th, 2016 by Christen

As a busy woman on the go,  managing clients, deadlines all while looking cute doing so the pressure (and struggle) can get real, real quick.  There are times, we could all use a few life hacks or reset buttons for an edge up on everyday life.  Lucky for me, I got the chance to upgrade the way I keep clean with the ultimate style hack for anyone with a busier than normal lifestyle.  Discover how to find affordable style with Dryel and how it’s changed the way I keep my style so fresh and so clean below.


Style With Dryel – A Thrifter’s Asset

If you’ve ever rummaged through racks and racks of coats, dresses or shirts at a vintage shop, then you know there’s a certain aroma that most thrifted items can’t help but have.  I can’t begin to share the countless times that I’ve gone into thrifting boutiques and found one-of-a-kind pieces that I wanted to wear the same day.  While there are some dry cleaners that offer same day service, you’d be hard pressed to find one with nearly convenient hours as your in-home dryer machine. With Dryel, your next thrifted find is as good as new and ready to wear after a few minutes in your dryer.
style with Dryel
Throughout the years, I’ve learned the best way to keep evolving your style is to know the trends, but also know what works for you.  My style fluctuates from diva glam to sporty chic on any given day, from my favorite vintage Roberto Cavalli mink coat and leather Yankee ball cap, to my vintage inspired H&M jacket and thrifted fur collar — I love mixing it up every chance I get.  (The funny thing about my style is that I typically get the most compliments on a look that I barely invested much effort into!  #EasyChic). No matter what, the one thing that never changes is just how good Dryel’s at home cleaning system comes through in the clutch!
style with Dryel

A meeting that turns into a late night gala invitation?  Dryel handled it.  A thrifted Buffalo plaid smock perfect for a last minute girls day out? One quick cleaning later, instant style with Dryel handled it.  With Dryel’s easy to use cleaning system, I’m able to spend less time and money making trips to the dry cleaners and more time enjoying the things and people I love.  Dryel is more than a modern girl’s style hack, it’s a money-saving and time-saving hack that has changed my life!
Dryel is easy to use, cost effective and it extends the life of your closet – what more could you ask for? Clothes look newer, longer, with no fading, shrinking or stretching.  You’ve seen how I keep my winter, spring and summer style chic without breaking the bank with Dryel, now how about you?  You can find Dryel At-Home Dry Cleaner at retailers like Walmart and Target or get social and connect with Dryel on Facebook and Pinterest today.

A Chic Holiday Gift For Him That Jimmy Fallon And J. Crew Approves!

November 20th, 2015 by Tech Staff

If you’re looking for a quirky stocking stuffer gift to take your man’s style to the next level, J. Crew has the perfect gift for you.

Jimmy Fallon, the host of “The Tonight Show,” had a vision for something that would take his style to the next level, so he whipped up a prototype and approached J. Crew with an idea: an iPhone case and a pocket square in one.

Pocket Dial


And thus the limited-edition Pocket Dial was born —because carrying your phone in your pants is so 2014. And since one pocket square is never enough, J. Crew even created interchangeable extras (the Pocket Redial) in classic patterns that are at home in any suit pocket. But you won’t just look good, you’ll feel good too: All of the net proceeds benefit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a Kenya-based charity that protects Africa’s elephants from ivory poaching and extinction.



How does the man in your life balance his tech and style?  Would this be a new gift you’d like to give this season?  Share your thoughts below!

I Found The Perfect Winter Boots For Me And Him At Simon Premium Outlets

November 16th, 2015 by Christen

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Simon Premium Outlets through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about Simon Premium Outlets, all opinions are my own.


simon premium outlets


It’s no secret the Simon Premium Outlets have an amazing selection of stores like Michael Kors, Kate Spade New York, Coach, J.Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, Polo Ralph Lauren, Under Armour, Nike, Burberry, Vera Bradley, The North Face and more – but did you know that there are over 65 locations housing hundreds of premium stores throughout the US?


This past week, I traveled to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in search of the perfect gift for my brother. He’s one of my closest siblings and with his birthday coming up, he really deserves a nice gift.  I know that he’s had his eyes on a pair of exclusive Timbaland boots that were released and sold out almost immediately – so the challenge was to find these limited-edition winter boots just for him.  After searching high and low throughout a few different stores, I finally located the Timberland boots perfect for him.



The exclusive Timberland boots are crafted with premium Quartz leather and organic dyes. They’re the most creatively designed and chic Timberland boots to date. Over the last couple of weeks the Internet has gone nuts over the new wing boots by Timberland officially called the Icon 6” Waterproof Brogue Boot. I actually discovered the Brogue boot for the first time on Facebook and immediately fell in love with the color, intricate design and silhouette of the boot.




There’s just something about the wingtip on a chestnut-colored Timberland boot that looks and feels just right.  I fell so in love with his gift that now I wanted a pair of my own! But first, I had to enlist the shopping help of my Facebook friends.  Who says chic Timberland men’s boots aren’t for girls?  After an overwhelming response to my tom-boy Timberlands – I definitely had to grab a pair for myself!  They say it’s better to give than to receive – but I think giving a gift and buying a gift for yourself is a win-win for everyone!



Find the perfect gift this season for a loved one (or for yourself) at the closest Simon Premium Outlets location near you.  Want to score a sneak peek of VIP exclusive coupons and sales? Get social by following Simon Premium Outlets on Facebook and Twitter or visit online today.
