"There is no excuse to dress bad at any size"

“But I am losing weight…”

Category : Article · No Comments · by Oct 19th, 2012

This has been the statements of statements throughout my styling career. It stays true for women a size 2 (who used to be a size 0), to size 24!

Women are always trying to lose weight, but the fact of the matter is, we need to look good at every size. There is no need to buy something a little tighter (and not as well fitting) because you hope to take up yoga and Zumba on the weekends. Nor is it alright to by pass the investment suit that actually is what you need at your level in your career to wait and get one when you lose weight!

“There is only one chance to make a first impression”,

Better put your best foot forward at all times and weights.

I have had clients that tried to use that excuse with me, guess what, 5 to 6 years later, the majority are the SAME size!

Yes we can lose weight, but why sacrifice a great trend or out fit now? Our tailors need to be our best friends! For investment pieces you can usually take the item down 2-3 sizes without losing the integrity of the garment and shape. If you lose more than that, oh well! Yay to you and you probably want all new clothes any how!!!

I know I would…..


Outfit of the day!

Category : Outfit of the Day · No Comments · by Oct 19th, 2012

This was my outfit from yesterday. My black and white theme runs through this outfit with two prints. My Olivia moon blazer and my DV Dolce Vita pony hair bootie. I added color with a bight purple top and paired it with a Vince Camuto tube skirt (which comes in a plethora of colors!),and Vince Camuto leggings. The outfit was completed by a black and gold necklace and gold watch (Fossil).
