My Fashion Story →
I know I’m late to the game but I’m completely in love with my new Chambray shirt and Ombre hair (not a good shot of the hair, I know). I also have a new love for DIY after making my blogger bag with Miss Me Jeans (I won the contest-more to come on that and a giveaway) at Lucky Fabb. Also, my fave Seattle blogger and friend, Jess Estrada from FreshJess.com - she’s fabulous! ...

A YEAR WITH TWITTER
Photo Credit: Business Of Fashion. Click it to read the story that started it all. Until January of last year, I associated DKNY with outdated rhinestone baseball caps and baby tees (think Bebe-esque logo). Why? Because that’s the kind of brand that DKNY still was? Absolutely not! It was only because I had not really been exposed to the brand since those items were “in”...
I am a sucker for anything that combines fashion and learning! I can’t get enough of the conferences, classes and seminars, I always leave with new friends and a notebook full of new ideas. So naturally when I heard of the Simply Stylist seminar at the W Hotel in Hollywood (which in itself is a fabulous enough reason to go) I knew it was an event not to be missed. Black and yellow...
Personal Styling 101
After taking Class 1 with School Of Style and learning the business of styling (see my experience here) I decided to take it a step further and learn the ropes of being a personal stylist. This class was held in the “Darkroom” at smashbox studios, Hollywood and taught by the fabulous, Lauren Messiah. Chic, no? Lauren is not only an experienced personal stylist, she is also an...
It's A Brad Brad World
This picture says it all! Brad was seriously one of the most laid back, goofy, sweet and well dressed people I have ever met! When I found out that he would be doing a book signing and Q&A at The Grove in LA, I knew I had to be there. Basic black would not work for this event so I decided to step up my color and pattern mixing game. Out of my comfort zone but I think it worked well! ...
Behind The Scenes: E! Fashion Police
When my bestie came to visit me in LA, finding a television show taping to attend was priority! And what better than Fashion Police? I mean really, Joan is the funniest person alive, I love Giuliana for a million reasons, George is just too sweet, and I have been wanting to see Kelly’s hair in person… like forever. Which by the way is GORGEOUS on her, I judge no more. Girl can rock...

Styld.by WHO WHAT WEAR at Gap
A gorgeous night at The Grove in LA was just the start of a fabulous night hosted by two of my favorite ladies in fashion. Nail art, lemon drops, and candy colored hair… who wouldn’t have fun? Say Fromage! Goofing around in the smile booth with fellow bloggers. A packed party. Everyone came styled in brights, spring fever has set in! My must have from Gap this...

Olivia Palermo has my favorite celeb style. Not only does her style rock, but she styles herself!
Getting Schooled In Style
Above: My School Of Style Workbook and Coffee I have read every book that I could get my hands on written by stylists, every blog, conference, live streaming… you name it. The last book I read, Secrets Of A Stylist by Sasha Charnin was by far the most helpful and insightful tool of all. I took notes on that book like it was my job! But really I had no job, what was the next step to...

Dreams Are Hard To Hold Onto
Next week is is February already, almost a month has passed since we decided that 2012 would be the year for situations to change, goals to be reached, and dreams to come true. There’s nothing like a fresh start, new beginnings hold so many promises. Or do they? Yes and no. New beginnings don’t only come around on January first. Fresh starts aren’t only for Monday. Each day is a...
Life Is What You Make It
Each day brings with it a plethora of emotions, a to do list (whether large or small), and opportunities. One might say that the day not only brings opportunities but also obstacles. This depends on how you choose to look at it. I choose to see each obstacle as an opportunity. One door closed only means another will open. Unless you fight it, complain about it, and settle for it. C’est la...
Chinese New Year In Miami
Oh how I love twitter! I follow @LorenRidinger (and you should too) and when she tweeted about a contest for a trip to Miami, I not only instantly entered but I tweeted it to my friend Amber @AMBitiousPRGirl and told her to enter too. Having forgotten all about it, I was walking by her desk several days later and she yells, ” I WON”. What? No way? Yes, she did and we were Miami bound!...

Red Carpet Stylists: Unsung Heros or Masters of...
Although the actual show itself was quite a bore, the red carpet coverage was quite entertaining. Seeing who wore what, who looked good, who looked terrible, and who was setting next seasons trends. Fashion is a funny business, isn’t it? The black dress is too boring but taking a risk will usually land one on the worst dressed list. We so often hear that fashion is fun, don’t take yourself too...
