Wear Red! Here's how...

The color of the holidays and the color of love, a classic go-to we get stuck wearing the same way. This season, put away your red Christmas sweater and purchase a new red favorite to wear for the month of December.

1. Sexy Sleek


    It may sound cliche but mix black, red, and leopard print for a classic get-up. The trick to add a modern twist, integrate a tan piece to soften the bold look.

2. Lovely Leather 


    Think feminine rocker chick. A red leather piece can be worn with more than just jeans or black pants! Here is a combo with olive green skinny jeans and brown boots for an everyday comfortable look.

3. Bold Nautical


    Wear your favorite stripe sweater with layers and completely update that piece! Red pants are easy to integrate into your wardrobe if you typically wear neutrals. For an unexpected contrast throw on a pair of lace up heels.

Look For Less: Britney Spears

Top (Bodysuit) - Chiara £ 12.95, Skirt - JCPenney, Liz Claiborne $25, Belt - Make Me Chic  $8, Earrings - Forever 21 $4.80, Necklace - Nordstrom Dogeared $66

Lucky Magazine is getting a lot of attention for this cover photo of Britney Spears. But beyond the controversy, there is a common view about one thing - that is a cute outfit on the pop-princess. We re-created the look for you using affordable pieces found online or in a store near you.

The sheer polka-dot top is flirty without revealing too much. By adding a longer pencil skirt in the same fun red, this outfit can transition holiday party to work event with the addition of a blazer or cardigan. The pink bow belt is trendy and could easily be swapped out for a basic black or metallic belt. The jewelry is kept simple and understated.

Stand-out Outerwear

It seems the rainy season is here to stay. We had a beautiful extended Summer full of feminine outfits, but now it is time to bundle up to protect from the elements. However, in a city like Seattle, where we wear some sort of jacket 3/4 of year, we should embrace coats that are just as beautiful as the clothing underneath.

InStyle Magazine, Nov 2012
Wool-mohair emerald jacket, Diane von Furstenberg, $695

Emerald green is a bold color and such an eye catcher. 

InStyle Magazine, Nov 2012
Acrylic-Cotton-Wool coat, United Colors of Benetton, $275

This classic and cozy jacket is great for an everyday kind of look. Patterned coats make for an interesting, unique look. Don't worry so much about matching it with pieces beneath, no one will even notice!

Burberry Advertisement

For the woman who loves clean lines and a sexy, elegant look. A double breasted long trench is the perfect coat for work or evening. Don't forget your high heels when wearing this lean fitted style!

Fall Trend 2012: The Updated Pantsuit

The pantsuit is a timeless classic that can easily be worn as separates for a casual outing or worn together for an ultra put together look.

With an array of cuts and colors to pick from, there is a perfect suit to fancy your personality. I must it would not be a mistake to invest in good cut, you can literally wear this year round, from day to evening.


Vogue, September 2012

This suit above has the perfect ankle length pant for heels or flats. Don't shy away from sky blue, it can easily be worn with floral prints and neutrals.



Harper's Bazaar, September 2012

For the powerful sexy woman, burgundy will be a good color decision. The belted waist creates a feminine feel for the ladies with a straight figure.

What your mother won't tell you


-{A summer satchel will instantly add color to her day-to-day outfits}-

Women hold such an important role. We are in charge of taking care of the home, picking up after everyone else, and keeping everything together. Mother's day is a time to celebrate the support and love we receive from the one person who put our needs first. The best gift for such a giving person is purchasing a piece they wouldn't go out of their way to get for themselves. Spoil her with a piece she can treasure.
-{Don't be afraid to gift the color of tangerine, this can be worn with summer dress or rolled up jeans}-

-{Something she will wear over and over again}-

-{Women spend less on jewelry than they really should, instead of fine jewelry, get her a little something that she can wear without having to think about how to work it into her outfits}-

-{A little va-voom for a boost in confidence and a flirty piece for date nights}-

Love in the form of fashion


-{If you find yourself daydreaming and twirling when you try it on, it is defintley the dress}-

There is nothing sweeter than love, more romantic than a first kiss, or more royal than your wedding. During this season, I get a little nostalgic about my own wedding. I fall in love all over again, find inspiration in the most current chic flicks, and can't help but reach out at pieces that sparkle. Maybe I get so caught up in work during this time because I never got to experience a huge wedding like I always dreamed. My job is to search for every perfect piece to make the bride feel like the most important person in the world.

-{Wearing a skirt and a metallic mesh top is a perfectly fine alternative}-



-{The head piece to bring back a classic accessory to a modern look}-


-{A box clutch for a balance of structure to a overly flirty dress}-


-{The only gold shoe with just the right amount of sparkle}-

Calming colors for busy days

-{I've been searching for the perfect coin purse and finally found it!}-

Living to the extreme isn't always a good way to live. You don't want to overindulge in your favorite ice cream every day or go out with your girlfriends every night, you'd get sick and exhausted! I have reached my limit; the past few weeks have been over booked (not complaining but I am working on scheduling only a max. amount of clients a week), two new partnerships have been started, and I have been doing paperwork and answering emails any free time I have (including the middle of the night). There is nothing I would rather do than be a business owner and stylist, but I finally came to the realization that I need a more balanced life.
The pieces I have been drawn too lately are saturated in color. I have shied away from jewel tones, bright neons, and loud prints. Right now I am wearing and gravitating towards corals, pale yellows, more natural hues. Here's to a week of learning to manage my love for fashion and my life outside of work, trust me, it's not as easy as it sounds!

-{Colorful alternative to a nude heel is a pale yellow}-

-{Nothing I love more than a fabulous piece of jewelry}-

-{Summer layering? Check!}-


-{Inspired to write without distractions and focus on one task at a time}-
