Personal style. What is it? How do I discover it? Do I have one or multiple? These are common questions we have as we find ourselves among various pieces of fabric; hundreds of hues, patterns, and silhouettes. The options can feel overwhelming. I mention this concept because, I too, often ponder what my own style is. What I have come to understand, is that style often comes with mood, occasion and comfort. For instance, as I write this, the snow is blustering across t
What is it? Madden Girl floral velvet booties Where did you buy it? Nordstrom Rack How Much? On sale for $42.97 Why did you buy it? In the Fall I find myself drawn to the bootie section of the shoe stores. I tend to purchase a trendy pair each year. Last year, I purchased a black suede open-toe bootie by Manelli. I wore them a lot! This year, I've been drawn to velvet. How do you wear and pair? I will wear them with dresses and ankle pants (or rolled up distressed jeans)

I talk a lot to clients about small tweaks that make a huge difference with their style.

For this stylist Saturday, I went for something I consider tried and true of my style. Comfy jeans, interesting sweater/top, and flat detailed shoes. I was on my way to help a client in their closet, which typically consists of me sitting on someone's floor for 1+ hours so I like to be comfortable. I do however work as a stylist, so try to be on point with my outfits :) I didn't realize it when I was putting it together, but two of the pieces were from Optiz Outlet. Have y

DSW How much?
Why did you buy it?
I was looking for a pair of black loafers or flats to wear with jeans and leggings for the fall. I love that these are easy to slip on and off, the beauty of a mule shoe ( great for shopping and trying on clothes!)
