Are You Stuck In The 90’s?


Today I am shopping for a client who happily admits (YIKES) she still dresses like she’s in the 90’s (which is why she hired me thankfully). Even her co-workers agree. And I do too. What makes it so fashionably obvious she’s still in the 90’s, is she’s matching them with the styles of today!

Are You Stuck In The 90’s?

Today I am shopping for a client who happily (YIKES) admits she still dresses like she’s in the 90’s (which is why she hired me thankfully). Even her co-workers agree. And I do too. Interestingly, she is a Human Resources manager for a prominent company. Being ‘out of style’ and being in HR is not a good combination. What makes it so unfashionably obvious she’s still in the 90’s, is she’s [...]
Is SHABBY Worth Keeping? (No…but we do it anyway)

Is SHABBY Worth Keeping? (No…but we do it anyway)

This is a sweater I found folded in a client’s closet. She told me she only wore it to the grocery store. Huh. Apparently she rolls up the sleeves to hide the holes.

And best of all…it’s comfortable AND stylish! [...]

“Anything I cannot transform into something marvelous, I let go.” – Anais Nin

Lately I have been looking at my own wardrobe a little more closely. I desire two things: 1. to look stylish 2. to feel marvelous wearing it. These days, I have been mindfully selecting pieces I haven’t worn for some time which has been both refreshing as well as daunting. Believe it or not I have found I own clothes I don’t feel good wearing! Maybe I felt it looked good last year, but [...]
The Best Layering Shirt (I have 6) & 20% Off

The Best Layering Shirt (I have 6) & 20% Off

This is my favorite layering undergarment t-shirt and thru the 15th they are having 20% off on everything! I have blogged about AMB Boutique’s tops before but wanted to make sure you got in on the deal! They are very thin and flattering for a smooth silhouette. Many times I have worn this shirt under a sleeveless dress or top that you have only thought to wear under a jacket or sweater. For example, [...]
