2018 Style Goals

January-the month of resolutions, vision boards and goal setting. We set goals for income, our businesses and weight loss/fitness. Why not do some reflecting upon your style, image and wardrobe for the year, and set goals in this area? I mean…you are the CEO of your closet, aren’t you? If you already have some ideas for your 2018 style goals,* looking back at your past year will help to ensure they are truly in line with your priorities and values. Take your time reflecting and reviewing, and try to do it a few days in advance of goal setting. Enjoy [..] read more

Top 10 Blog Posts of 2017

I rarely copy-cat other bloggers, but almost every blog I read has had a “Year in Review”, “Best/Worst of 2017” or “Top 10 Blog Posts” so I thought, for once, I’d jump on the bandwagon. I also know how busy everyone is and even though I read my daily blogs pretty religiously, I still miss (or forget about) some. #1 is the most popular blog post of 2017 (and possibly ever,) so I urge you to read all the way to the end.

A Few of My Favorite Things

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season! Even though I love the holidays and am enjoying these last days of celebrating, I’m excited for the New Year. But before we move onto “what’s next,” I thought I’d reflect a little on “what is” and share a few of my favorite things. I’ve been a fan of these things for a long time and can’t imagine changing any of them! I’ve often been described as “fussy”. I prefer to think of myself as “choosy”! And why not be choosy about products and fashion items I’m going to spend [..] read more

The Little Not-So-Black Dress

Last Saturday when I asked a client if she wanted an LBD (little black dress) she said, “Yes, but not the B part.” She loved the idea of such an adaptable dress for going out, but she didn’t want to get lost in the sea of black dresses she sees everywhere. I totally agreed with her and assured her she didn’t have to wear black to get the versatility she’s looking for. One of the reasons the little black dress (and black in general) is so popular is that it’s easy and not completely memorable like some other colors. But [..] read more

The Biggest Fashion Trend for 2018

Pantone recently announced its color palette for spring of 2018 (very exciting…to me, anyway) and the fashion world is touting BRIGHT COLORS as the biggest trend for the year. I gotta admit…I like my summer wardrobe so much better than my winter wardrobe. The reason? Spring/summer colors are so much brighter and feel happier than fall/winters dark subdued shades. So why can’t we wear brights in the winter? I can’t think of any reason whatsoever! And I’m planning on experimenting a bit with the brights in my closet. Maybe, just maybe I won’t even pair them with neutrals. Today, I plan [..] read more
