    1. Thank you so much, Pam! I'm so glad to hear this and really encouraged. Thank you again for taking the time to write. Glad to hear this is helpful for you!

  2. Found you on Pinterest and it truly couldn't have came at a better time. I have been in a huge rut... Wearing jeans, v-neck t-shirts with a colored cami, with flip flops or slippers. I own almost every color of t-shirt and cami (they are safe and easy)... That's how bad it is. To make things worse I HATE shopping... In fact loathe is probably a better word. Especially for shoes. Ughhh... Just thinking about it. My sweet husband actually told me take some money out of our budget to go shopping. I need a wardrobe make over and your blog has helped me get inspired. Just wanted to say thanks!!

    Also, if you have any tips on breaking out of my very safe rut and especially my hatred towards shoes I could sure use them!

    1. Hey Janae! I'm not the blogger (or a blogger), but I'd love to help!

      What makes you hate shopping for shoes? Do you find that they fit strangely or no size choices or you just don't like the massive options? I have trouble with it because so many shoemakers seem to make shoes solely for looks when my feet need some support... cause y'know, they're actually physically important to me.

      (Hope I see your reply! If not, hit me up at @sehneju. :3 )

    2. Holy Jesus, I just replied to a year-old post. Let me to find a corner to die in. XD

  3. I love your blog!! It inspired me to go through my closet and be more creative and I'm shocked at how many cute outfits I was able to pull together when I thought I had very little to work with. Thank you!!

  4. I also stumbled across your blog on pinterest and I immediately sent your site link to my mom, sister, and friend! Your blog has given me so much inspiration. I am so dissatisfied with what I have in my closet that I've been less than enthusiastic about getting ready in the morning. I always end up with the same 'ol boring ensemble. I always stay safe. Anyways, I pulled out 10-12 pieces of clothes, plus all of my boots, scarves and belts and mixed and match to my hearts content. Then I took pictures of all my new outfits, using things I already have, and made an iphoto album on my computer that I can refer to when I can't think of what to wear. I've also decided my next wild and crazy purchase will be red skinny jeans - thanks to you! My husband will be so happy! When he saw me taking pictures of my clothes he said, "Why do you only have black and white things?" Red jeans will shock him! Anyways, this is the best blog I've ever come upon. You rock!

    1. Kristin, I'm so glad to hear all this! How cool that you made an iPhoto album. You should check out Go Chic or Go Home (link on the side column of the blog). It's basically an interface that helps you organize outfits--ones you've worn but more importantly, potential outfits. You can upload different pics of your individual clothes and mix and match virtually and create ensembles too. It's helpful so that you have less of a mess to clean up versus when we tear our our closets onto the bed. Also, if you have a smart phone, you can think of potential outfits even when you're away from your closet by using it on your phone!

  5. I just found your blog! It is so great. I am clueless when it comes to putting outfits together. I am learning so much. Thanks!

  6. Wow, I LOVE this blog. Normally fashion blogs get old fast, and feel a little.. Conceited, I guess. But this blog, man! It is totally helpful! I love the way you show the differences between outfits versus just saying "This necklace pulled the outfit together." Amazing. I'm about to graduate college and I've been trying to figure out how to look and feel more "womanly" and pulled together, and this is exactly what I needed to find. Kudos.

    So, with that said, I have a question. I feel like I have such issues with shoes. I don't know what looks good with certain outfits, what's mismatched, what types of shoes are too dressy for casual wear, everything. I don't know why I feel so clueless here, but when my fiance has a better grip on shoe fashions I think it's time for an intervention! ;)

  7. A friend who found your blog via Pinterest gave you glowing accolades on her FB page, and wallllla I've arrived to this fablous place called Puttingmetogether.com! Awesome blog! Your style is exactly where I aim to go.

    Can you do a special post on belts? How to select? What widths to wear with what?

    Everytime I attempt to add one to my outfit I yank it off at the last minute b/c I think it's too tight or too loose. Help!

  8. this is my new favorite blog!! i cant wait to go shopping! how can i ask style questions for you to answer?? i have a few!

    1. You can email me audrey [at] puttingmetogether [dot] com. :)

  9. This is what I have been looking for. I have been at home this week with an injury and have been watching a ton of what not to wear and it has not come close to being as valuable as this blog. This spells it all out beautifully, and is the most helpful fashion blog on the internet hands down!

  10. Hi Audrey! I'm so glad & thankful I found your blog after seeing an outfit of yours I pinned on pinterest :) I've been struggling with how to use the clothes I already have in my closet to make cute and stylish outfits, but after reading through your blog(I think I spent a total of 3 days), I have now found many ways to mix-n-match and make the most of what I have. I was also inspired to go out and find a few of your key pieces, which I was fortunate enough to find on sale/clearance at both Old Navy & Target! I adore your style and love how you keep things simple, functional, trendy, classic, and fun all at the same time. I would love to see or hear of any style tips/outfits you have on using "work slacks." Thank you for sharing and opening up your closet, wardrobe and style tips!

    1. How awesome that you have been able to mix and match your clothes! And even more awesome o find things on sale at Old Navy and Target. I don't really wear work slacks, so I don't have much to offer on the subject. But there are plenty of other blogs who do looks with that in my "Blog Love" section. Good luck!

  11. Have you written a post on closet organization? If not, could you do one?

  12. Zoology. Yesterday I put my reading to the test and I must say I felt very successful! I used a summer dress with blue tights and a gray and blue Cardigan.I created a whole new loom for the dress. I then rummage through my closet and played dress up for a while seeing my clothes differently. I am excited now. Thank you for being frank with your instructions.

  13. Love your blog and appreciate the tips.

    Just wondering if you or anyone here knows of a similar blog for plus sized (size 16+) women who are 5ft 3 or less?

  14. Dear Audrey,

    I love to see wht you wear.
    Do you have some advice on how to dress for a iob interview?
    Im currently inbewern jobs and have some interviews coming up. Mostly office jobs.

    Anyy advice?



  15. Hi Audrey,

    I am totally in love with your blog and your tips. I have been a nerd all my life, and it's just recently that I have started appreciating fashion and style. Your blog is my savior.

    If I may suggest, I would like you to do do a post on how to pair neutrals and colors(esp. neutral bottoms and colored tops and accessories), what combinations work and what don't.

    Also, a post on shoes and bags( I know I am asking for too much).

    Take care and keep blogging.

    Cheers from India,

  16. How about doing a series on scarves as belts?

  17. Audrey!
    I just stumbled on your blog and I'm in love!! I love that you include where you got each item, and you don't only shop at high price stores. Also I am trying to thin out and organize my closet as well, trying to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. Your blogs seem to be helping. Thanks so much for blogging, I feel like its a modern What not to wear for younger gals.

  18. Love your blog. As I am getting a bit older (but not old), I have struggled with how to dress. In my twenties I was a jeans and tshirt girl all the way, but now that I am in my early thirties I found it really hard to look "my age". I loooove all of your tips! Classic, Classy yet stylish, which is jusst the help I needed!

  19. Hi there! First off, I love this blog! I found you on Pinterest and ever since you have taught me some very valuable fashion lessons! I totally related to you when you admitted to being a "one-hit-wonder" victim of your closet. Excuse me, I have some shopping to do!

  20. I stumbled upon your blog a few months ago and now refer to it almost every day! I recently moved from a very small, very rural town where my entire wardrobe was jeans and t-shirts. My move took me to a larger city where I got a job working in a women's clothing store (gulp!) Not that I had no interest in fashion before, I just didn't need it. Going from having no wardrobe to needing to dress for work was like diving into the deep end. But your blog has saved me from drowning, thank you! Your information and tips on key pieces and building a (mixable) wardrobe from scratch are invaluable! Thank you again for sharing your journey and making mine a little easier going.

  21. i love this clothing tips. I feel people must know about apparel buying tips. The clothes they wear from any where; online or shops. It will really guide them:

  22. Thanks for great posts, Audrey! Your styling tricks really helped!

  23. hi audrey, can you provide tips on taking care (clean/store) of clothes and what kind of fabrics are easiest to maintain and don't require ironing, etc.
    thanks! great website!

  24. I am curious about buying accessories! i always feel like I need a million and then they end up in a drawer. HELP!!

  28. It is our responsibility to update the latest things for our lifestyle. I hope with the help of your post I updated.

  29. This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony i have ever
    seen..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF JUNE 2014,
    after my husband separated me and my marriage of 8 years was broken down
    and i was totally inconsolable and without hope because i have tried all
    means to get my husband back after much pleading and did everything
    possible to make sure that he comes back, but nothing worked out for me....
    And i saw a marvelous testimony with this email address
    drbabaspellalter@gmail.com of this powerful and great spell caster called
    Dr baba on the forum.. And i saw how Dr baba reunited a family and
    brought the Husband of a woman back to her in just 24 hours..I never
    believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about magic before..
    Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not
    until Dr baba did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me
    and brought my spouse back to me in the same 24 hours just as i read on the
    internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my husband came to my
    house and knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him
    back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to
    convey my appreciation to you Dr baba.. you are certainly a God sent to me
    and my entire life and family.. he did his work just as he guaranteed me in
    24 hours and it yielded an optimistic result to me and i was able to get my
    Husband back. right now my Husband has falling so much in love with me and
    my kids like never before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he
    opened up his eyes to see how much i love and wanted him, i really don't
    know how best to be grateful to you Dr baba for bringing happiness into
    my life and family, and now i am a joyful woman once again.. here is his
    Email: drbabaspellalter@gmail.com, or drbabaspellalter@hotmail.com connect him with these number +2348142705931 you can email me for more information mikejenni52@gmail.com

  30. Hi Audrey!
    I am so glad I found your blog. I feel you really represent the style I'd like to wear (and am slowly getting around to buying!) and being in the US now, I have the choice to buy some of the items you list!

    I just wanted your advice, and I know it may be a bit of an "it depends" but I'm looking at two pairs of heels, and picking between two colors right now. I'd rather not have two pairs of the same distinct styl.

    So if you had to pick between having a gray pointed pump or a taupe pump, which would you pick? I am looking at the Nine West Kramer (laser cut kitten heel) - you have the same in pink I think! I usually wear warm colors, so I am feeling the beige, yet I have quite a few tan shoes and I feel the gray might be more versatile in other areas. I also have a similar height black pair (like your HM low heels) Do you have a method of picking between two awesome colors of a unique looking item? I wish picking both was an option but it seems extravagant given my budget and their unique design but "similar" colour.

    Thanks :)

    1. Hi! I've personally gotten more wear out of my beige pair, but I tend to wear tan shoes. I'd go through your pants, skirts, and dress options you'd likely wear the shoes with and figure out which option fits better. If it's a tossup, go with your gut. Good luck!

  31. Hi, thank you for your tips, I have written an article on this topic too. Sometimes it seems like fashion bloggers have tons of clothes, I on the other hand have a lot of favourite pieces that I like to wear more than once but don´t want my readers to get bored, so I came up with some ideas how to do it.

  32. In your blog I was happy to see your article, better than last time, and have made great progress, I am very pleased. I am looking forward to your article will become better and better.

  33. Hi Audrey,

    I discovered your site yesterday and spent, oh, I'd say about 5 hours on it. You're brilliant with clothes, making everyday dressing seem like a walk in the park. I'm a total noob at the moment (mom-sweats-&-t-shirt uniform, haha, even though my kids are 11 & 14 now, lol), but hopefully I will be able to start applying your tricks and tips in the very near future!! I've already started my guidelines and questions to ask myself list in Paperless on my iPod.

    This being said, I'm a big fan of the belt. Except I only own ONE belt. Well, and two that came with outfits that I removed and hung somewhere in my closet. I wanted to know, how do you go about choosing a belt that is both remixable and efficient? For example, if I wanted to wear the belt around my waist over a top/cardigan/etc, it needs to be smaller than if I want to wear it around my hips to hold my pants up. Or should I buy two different sized belts for various uses?

    Another belt question I have is with regards to how you position it over clothes. Is there a rule of thumb to follow for different shaped women? Maybe I can Google that one. But, when you wear a belt with a skirt (in many of the images from the BARW series), are you belting it through the "loops"? Or over the skirt itself? And can you do that with a trouser that has no belt-loops?

    Thanks so much for any advice you can give! And thanks for all the time you invest in your blog, making it easier for noobs like me to pull it together!! :) :) xx
