When getting professional head shots, the general rule is, less is more.  The purpose of a headshot is to highlight YOU, so keep your look clean and simple.  Avoid busy patterns, statement jewelry, unnatural make up looks.  All of these things will detract from the central focus…YOU.  Avoid fashion choices that are too trendy to […]

Even with the dunks craze, some “girly girls” still don’t do sneakers.  This look is a casual solution for such women.  I put a Helmut Lang sweater (w/ sheer cut outs) with T by Alexander Wang sweat pants, Marc By Marc Jacobs color blocked wedges and a Milly color blocked satchel.  I love pairing sweats […]

These are my favorite picks from Tory Burch’s Spring 2013 Collection

As a personal stylist I have witnessed numerous women walk into fitting rooms, try on clothing, and walk away feeling like they need to change themselves. It’s time women realize what men have known for ages: It’s not you that needs to be altered, it’s the clothes. There are no universal cuts or sizes, so […]

Bermuda shorts are a hot trend for Spring/Summer 2013.  You will find them in an assortment of colors, prints and materials; from business suits to casual separates.  This season, “the look du jour” is pairing Bermuda shorts with heels or wedges that strap around the ankle or a high gladiator sandal. Caveat:  This look works […]

March 9th marks the anniversary of the death of Notorious B.I.G., arguably the greatest rapper of all time. Biggie, had as much influence on Hip Hop fashion as he had on the music. Not since Heavy D, had an over-sized rapper dared to be dapper. Although, people respected fun loving Heavy, they didn’t want to […]

I spotted a stylish Swedish tourist, at the mall, and had to capture her Doc Martens. The shoes have character and fit perfectly with her personal style. She obviously had these Docs since the 90’s (when the Grunge era first brought about the fashion trend) and preserved them well by moisturizing frequently. If you didn’t […]

Frugalistas!  Shopping cheap isn’t necessarily saving you money.  In most cases, you get what you pay for.  Short of amazing thrift and consignment finds, end of the season and going out of business sales, shopping cheap translates to purchasing disposable clothing.  Disposable clothing are those items that hold up for one or two washes or maybe a season, if […]

The Oscars is the biggest night in Hollywood fashion and this year the stars did not disappoint.  Big trends on the red carpet were nudes (and pale colors) and high splits for ladies.  Trends for men included three piece tuxes and beards/five o’clock shadows. When it comes to celebrity red carpets, “Best Dressed” is greater […]

The crown jewel of awards season–The Academy Awards–will be taking place this Sunday.  Everyone will be glued to the red carpet to see what the women of Hollywood will be wearing to the Oscars.  In honor of the men of Hollywood, who usually get far less fashion buzz than their counterparts, here is a look […]

Boyfriend jeans are a big trend this season.  One of my style clients recently asked the difference between boyfriend jeans, cropped jeans, and ankle jeans.  Cropped jeans usually stop mid calf or a noticeable distance above the ankle.  Ankle jeans stop at or just above the ankle.  Boyfriend jeans may be ankle jeans, cropped jeans […]

R&B star Keri Hilson, best known for the hit “Pretty Girl Rock”, celebrated her birthday in style at Vanquish nightclub in Atlanta.  Her outfit was impeccable. I love the wide legged tuxedo pants with the silk blouse and silk color-blocked blazer.  Going braless with the tiered gold chain added the birhtday girl wow factor.  The flipped collar, hair, and stiletto nails pay tribute […]
