If you haven’t read Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, try and do it this week—before the movie hits the big screen. Why such a following for this book? It’s a story of discovery, or rediscovery, as you follow Gilbert as she eats, prays, and loves her way through Italy, India, and Bali.

This book may inspire you to “detox your wardrobe” by introducing going for the essentials!

The quintessential Little Black Dress
bamboo viscose "Energy Satin"

Fashion trends may come and go, but one item has been a staple of every woman's wardrobe - the cocktail dress.

So sublimely simple, this “energy satin” cocktail dress beguiles with its clean, uncomplicated silhouette. Luxurious and polished with sophisticated construction, this dress infuses a modern architectural simplicity for an instant classic. Think Jackie O, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn - invisible side seam zipper and wide sash tie removable belt. Designed to hit above the knee, pair it with fishnets and heels for a polished evening look. We dare you to find a place you won't want to wear this must have wardrobe addition, available at jonano.com.

The Perfect Shirtdress!

This highly tailored “energy satin” shirtdress is a unique option for trips to the office, Sunday brunches, and after work dinners, accentuating your great shape.

This version has a light ruffling at the elbow length sleeves flirts with femininity, while the double button mandarin font closure can be buttoned up or worn loose and open for versatile looks that will take you from day to evening. Layer it over jeans or wear it as a jacket. Double sash ties at the waist add just the right amount of unique detail without trying too hard. Pair it with your favorite heels for a polished look. or swap out the sash ties for your favorite chunky belt and cowboy boots for a chic and relaxed date night. I find the shirtdress another wardrobe must have also from Jonano!

It’s not just about what you remove from your wardrobe that helps “detox your wardrobe” and promote a healthier life long-term for you and for this planet we love. Making mindful choices is about making additions that are carefully chosen. Just as when we read labels as we go down the grocery isle, we can read labels in the clothing boutiques as well…it all adds up to positive benefits for our common Mother Earth. Life is long…yes I know that they say its short…but I must argue that its long and we all have so many opportunities to make a change and make a difference.
