3 Reasons Personal Style Is Important

In this age of women’s empowerment and the notion that we’ve come so far, it could be so easy to dismiss personal style. Should our style, image, or how we look matter to our success? Absolutely! And quite honestly, personal style, image and first impressions aren’t limited to women. Men are in this game of presenting themselves with style just as much as women are! So back to the question of why image and style are important…there are far more reasons than you have time to read about today, so I’ll just concentrate on my top 3. 3 Reasons Personal [..] read more

Pearls, professional dress and fun facts

As I discussed at great length in this post on the pearl jewelry trend for 2016, not only are pearls versatile and great for professional dress, they’re also the birthstone for June. If you’re a not a real pearl girl, I encourage you to read this post and the prior post, as the current trend isn’t grandma’s pearls anymore.

Personal branding from the inside out

How to Look Youthful, Not Young

“Youthful” is a common ingredient in many of my clients’ personal style recipes. While most women want to appear youthful, they don’t want to appear young, or too young. What’s the difference, you may ask? “Youthful” connotes being fresh, up to date and vivacious, while “young” (unless you really are young,) can be perceived as unsophisticated, immature and trying too hard.

Always voracious for more style education and new viewpoints, I recently purchased [..] read more
