I'm Tonie - my hearts desire is to work with brides who are not afraid of stepping outside their comfort zone for a dance in the rain, a romp under a waterfall or a blustery day that might put wind in her hair!


“Closet Shopping” – Cutting Costs by Rediscovering Your Wardrobe by Tonie Christine – Session 1

Feb 20, 2014

Let me ask you a question.

Do you find yourself:
a. Stuck in a fashion rut
b. Wearing the same 2-3 outfits when you want to look really cute
c. Have a very full closet but do not wear nearly all of it

Well if you answered “Yes” to any of those then this “Closet Shopping – Cutting Costs by Rediscovering your Wardrobe” series is for you! I indeed LOVE clothes. I am not the most fashionable person out there, but I do like trends, good finds, great deals and feeling like I love the outfit I am in!  I have found that my closet is full of great items, but SO many that I purchased, wore once and then just did not wear again. So to solve this problem I thought I would take a little tour of my own Pinterest STYLE ME Board that I create for my photography clients and see if anything in my closet resembled anything I loved on Pinterest! Low and behold it did! Now, my outfits will usually be the “good deal” and not match perfectly to the photos, but I will do my best on this journey to accomplish these simple goals:

1. Dig deep in my closet to find the things I don’t wear as often

2. Branch out of my “comfort zone” and wear some new fun trends

3. I will “closet shop” before I spend money on new items

So, here is the first installment of Cloest Shopping with Tonie Christine. (hope it inspires you to find a new outfit in your closet!)


Loved this more casual look and throw on a coat and you are good to go! Now I did find a “What she is wearing” blog so I thought I would share that before I show you how I put this outfit together: Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 10.19.34 AM
