No White After Labor Day? Tell’em boy bye. I’ll wear what I want when I want. Truth be told I wanted to wear this amazing suede jacket back in July but that would have been just crazy.  I’m an 80s baby (1984 to be exact)  but the 70’s are back in full effect. But I’m not a trend person. I teach women my professional style philosophy…

Style is personal. You have to find what works for you. Don’t force it. Don’t follow trends.  Know your bra size, wear shapewear and follow your heart

So when I saw this coat I knew this would be my gateway to 70s style for Fall 2016. If your new to the to the 1970s trend think, fringe, baby blue eyeshadow, platforms and flare jeans. 

Stylist Tips For Incorporating This Trend

  • Start with Accessories: an earring or shoe is a great place to start. Its small enough to wear to work but punchy enough to make an impact. 
  • Pick Neutral Colors: I choose brown so that I may wear this with many things for different occasions. 
  •  Wear Classic Shapes: Wearing trending pieces in modern shapes and silhouettes so that will stand the test of time in your closet, no matter how much you paid for the item. 




The Perfect White Jeans For Curvy Girls



“White makes you look bigger, so why would I want to put white on these hips and thighs?” I can’t tell you how often I hear this, still in 2014. You would think with all the technology and advances in the world  that women would have put this notion to rest by now. Unfortunately not. However, even as a stylist I realize the struggle is real. Finding the right pair of jeans can be a headache and finding white jeans can be equivalent to a migraine.  Last year I tried several brands and came up short. Not Your Daughters Jeans didn’t work, Gap Curvy didn’t work, Levis didn’t have my size (perviously a size 18/16), Old Navy didn’t have enough stretch and Torrid didn’t have any white jeans in the store.

Glory be to fashion a few weeks ago on an impluse shopping trip I found the perfect white jeans for curvy girls! You can thank me now!
