Winter Coat Trend – Capes

Pea coats and parkas are nice, but if you're looking to perk up your winter wardrobe, make a statement with a cape! Capes are a big trend this season, appearing on runways and in fashion magazine, but I'd argue that they are a timeless piece that is worth the investment. Keep Your Cape Stylish and Balanced The key to wearing a cape is balance. Capes add volume to the top half of your body, so pair them with skinny jeans, pencil skirts, leggings, and tall boots to elongate the legs. If you're interested in a classic cape that you can wear for seasons to come, look for wool or flannel capes in gray, navy, black, or camel, just like you would a pea coat. - Ultimate Military Cape by Top Shop $190 - Modern Capelet by White House Black Market $188 - Crusade Cape by French Connection … [Read more...]

My favorite part of the holidays? The glitz and glam and opportunity to wear sequin and sparkle in the name of holiday cheer. This year, I'm particularly smitten with gold sequin.

Although I am only 9 weeks pregnant, because my body has done this quite a few times before, I'm already experiencing some of these challenges, and I wanted to share my top 3 favorite must-have accessories with you: isABelt – the original fashion "fix-it" belt I am not exaggerating when I tell you that I have no idea how I made it through three pregnancies without one of these!

How Clothes Should Fit

How your garments should fit The most common clothing issue I see with women is poorly fitting clothing.My goal with most of my clients is to simply get them into clothing that fits properly.In doing that, they will instantly look thinner, stand a little taller, exude confidence – and of course, be accepting tons of compliments. Clothing that doesn’t fit properly will add bulk, bring attention to problem areas, and completely camouflage the best aspects of your figure.It can make you look older, give your appearance a dowdy edge, and make you look like you’ve gained weight! TOPS Long sleeved garments should hit just below the wrist bone with just a little ease (shouldn't be too tight or loose) Shoulders of any jacket, blouse or tee should be AT the shoulder – right where your … [Read more...]
