What Is Your Favorite Go To Item In Your Closet - My black bell bottoms and also my little black dress. Every woman needs to own a little black dress says Stephanie. "If there is one thing that your wardrobe needs, regardless of what you do for work and how old you are, is a black dress. The little black dress is one of the hardest working items in any closet, as it can be worn for work, for nights out, and for casual weekends".

What Was Your Most Recent Clothing Purchase - A Dress. "Everyone should have a go-to dress," says Stephanie. "Whether it is the one you always toss in your suitcase for every trip or your husband's favorite. A dress is something I cannot live without. Once you discover the style that looks best on you, stick with it and you will always feel comfortable and confident", says Stephanie.
