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.

I haven’t worn this dress in ages. Honestly, there is one major reason why, I couldn’t fit it. Until recently this scenario was the story of my closet. You know that relationship I spoke about back in January? Well I gave it, 4 years of love and it gave me 60 pounds. I know, I don’t juge me. Relationship weight as I call it, is REAL! As women we know that not being able to fit things in your closet can suck! But we all have those, “I’ll be able to fit this again one day” items in our closet. Yes, even as a stylist I’m not perfect, I break some of the rules sometimes too… I’m human. In fact, I was going to sell this dress, I thought it had run its course in my closet (only have worn it once or twice). Then I saw a magazine article and got inspired. I immediately called my bestie and makeup artist B aka Just B Beautiful and voila, I was dressed to impress. Continue reading

Brand Collaboration: SM & Abbey Post

Recently I was asked by Abbey Post.com what are my fashion recommendations for women with Athletic body shapes ( inverted triangle). As you know its my passion to help women dress for the lives they want, so I was so excited to work with them. Here’s a sneak peak at the article.

Stylist Karima Renee of Skinny Minority suggests that you “try dresses with fuller skirts to create balance between the shoulders, bust, and hips.” Cynthia Schames agrees, “The key to inverted triangles wearing an A-line well is that you must belt it! The Kelly dress is a great choice, as it has a fit & flare silhouette that’s ultra-flattering.”
