Today’s pick

I thrifted this shirt the other day for 2$. I found it in the kids section so it was cheaper than the usual 4$ PLUS it was 25% off at Goodwill that day.The skirt was thrifted a few months ago for 4$ and the belt is from Calvin Klein.

Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Friday!!

I’m in love with pockets in a dress.

Feeling Blue

I am feeling blue today. I love doing the monochromatic thing with a slight pop of color (yellow heels!). Tailored blue jeans and a vintage hanky for a pocket square just make me smile. 
Yes, I said tailored blue jeans. 
No, they didn’t come that way. 
I recently had a conversation with a guy about the difficulties of jean shopping. Who knew that not only do women have a hard time but guys too! 
(What a relief.) 
I asked him if he got his pants tailored, and he, like most folks, gave me this bewildered look. 
Yes. You can get your jeans tailored. It is not weird. Every pair of pants that I own get tailored to some degree. I am not the tallest tree in the forest, so I almost always have to get them hemmed. 
I have a ‘weird’ shaped body (quads, no hips, small waist, a little bump in the back) so nothing fits off the rack. I almost  always have to get the waist taken in too.
I buy the jeans that fit my quads then get the waist taken in and Voila! A perfect pair of jeans. Some places, like Nordstrom, will even hem your pants for free! Just ask. 
Are you stuck in a fashion rut?
Desperate for a new spring look? 
Feel like there is no hope for your shape & size?
I would LOVE to help.

Style Staples

There are a few things that I almost always wear. 
1. jeans
2. cuff/bracelet
3. jacket/blazer/cardigan
These are my staples. Being stylish is not about doing crazy avant garde things on a daily basis (unless you are a crazy avant garde person). It is about knowing who are you and speaking that in the non-verbal form of communication which we call fashion. 
This is something learned over time and over some not so great fashion choices. It is about knowing your body and dressing it appropriately. I think most people wish something different for their body.  We can all point to our flaws (could someone please send me hips and height already!!) but having great style embraces these things. 
It wears cute wraps that give the illusion of hips and puts on a heel or makes her hair as spiky as possible to make herself a bit taller (it works!)
It starts though with knowing your body then playing up the strengths and minimizing those things that we aren’t so excited about. 
This is my job. This is what I get to help people do. I love being able to see someone literally come alive because they feel beautiful or like a GQ model. I would love to help you look as great on the outside as you are on the inside. (And if you aren’t great on the inside then we can work on that too 🙂
Have a great weekend!

What I wear running errands:

You will never catch me wearing sweats while running errands. I know some folks do and I am very saddened by this. It is just as easy to throw on a pair of boyfriend 1. I don’t have a boyfriend. 2. If I did, I doubt he would be my size jeans,  a 3/4 sleeve shirt and some loafers and not to mention it looks a lot better.
