For my latest Style Sense piece, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kate McComb. I stumbled across her website one night and was pretty stoked to find another writer in our great city of Toledo. Even more exciting is that Kate’s a fashion blogger. You can check out her fabulosity at Fashionably Kate.

Kate’s style is always classy, sometimes trendy, and positively attainable. If I had her wardrobe, I’d definitely turn one of my bedrooms into a closet. I’d light candles, drink some wine, and play dress-up all day. It would be my own boutique, from the comfort of my home… plus, did I mention wine?

What I really love about Kate’s style is how she mixes high and low items to create her outfits. For her moodboard, I chose a room-turned-closet inspired by her high/low formula. Many of the items are from IKEA, while others are a little more expensive but still within a decent budget.

No extra room for a closet? No problem! These items can be used for a walk-in closet as well, or you could just pick a few items to use in a small closet. If you can only afford a few items, go with those that pack the most punch like a beautiful paint and good lighting.

Kate’s style is also reflected in the Marilyn Monroe print I chose, as Ms. Monroe is her fashion icon. I selected this image since it’s one we’re not used to seeing of Marilyn—plus the pop of bubble gum pink is the room’s accent color. Navy blue and pink=instant chic. The paint color is Symphony Blue by Benjamin Moore.

Her love of leopard print accessories was also an influence, so I chose a rug to highlight this. The rug isn’t the golden hue you often see, so it pairs nicely with the other elements of the room. Since the closet will be full of other colors and patterns, it’s good to choose sleek, not-too-busy decor.

You can also find additional items and colors I selected on my fashionista’s closet Pinterest board here.
