Spring/Summer 2018 Fashion Colors

Trends! So far we’ve talked about fashion trends and shoe trends. Today, let’s discover color trends for spring/summer 2018. Each year, Pantone, the international leader in color forecasting, releases its color predictions for the season. I have to admit—I love this season’s palette! There’s something for everyone: brights, pastels, neutrals, warm color and cool colors. While the shades I’m showing and talking about seem extra specific, in the stores and fashion, you’ll be able to find a lot of variations on the general themes. Here is my take on several of the spring colors and some ideas of how you [..] read more

It’s a Jean Thing!

Jeans are absolutely perfect for “Springtime in the Rockies” when you don’t know what the weather will be from minute to minute. Sure, every Colorado girl I know, and every one of my Denver wardrobe-consulting clients has at least one pair of jeans. This post isn’t about your basic, everyday jeans.

I’m so happy to have had “Bustform Betty” come into my life that I just had to take some pictures of her right away!

I am not super huge on rules, as I think it can completely stifle creativity, so the only real guidelines I’d say to follow are: [..] read more

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”!

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
