What’s YOUR Style Personality

What’s YOUR Style Personality? Do you know what defines a style personality?  Can you pick which of these images might be who YOU are?  Your style personality is defined in the clothes you wear.  Sometimes we forget who we are and just ‘go for it’….buy what’s styled on the mannequin.  Then we don’t wear these […]

Look Sharp in a Pencil Skirt

Pencil Skirt

I love a pencil skirt.  It’s chic, it’s smart and versatile and so on trend right now.  Not all pencil skirts like me though.  I have a triangular body shape so try as I might, not all of them fit me in just the right places.  What’s a woman to do?  Any  body can wear […]

Shoe Trends Spring 2011

Shoe Trends

“Sofie” recently received a question about shoes and trends. “When are we going to be free from this heavy strap that wraps around your foot and cuts your legs off visually shoe/sandal style!?!!  We’ve been seeing it for what feels like 3 or 4 seasons now!” First of all, I wanted to congratulate her on […]

Trend, Fashion or Style?

Julianne Moore

You’ve heard me say it before….I’ll say it again….Just because it is on trend or the latest “fashion” doesn’t mean it should be adapted or worn by you.  As a matter of fact, sometimes it just SHOULDN’T be either! There are so many things wrong with this outfit they are almost too many to count, […]

Particularly with jeans you MUST KNOW what goes into the production […]

InVESTment into Fall

Coldwater Creek Vest

I have been doing a lot of shopping and updating my client’s casual wardrobes lately.  It’s been interesting to create fun, new looks with what is in the market. I find the attitude and styling we’ve come to expect in the market over past several seasons has given way to a more subdued, somber look […]

Watch Your Crops

Cold Water Creek Travel Crop

Women love cropped pants. Most men DON’T! I love them not only because they are comfortable, but also because they hide my veins and giggly legs! I inherited my mother’s legs, which she always called “piano legs”. (big at the top and narrow at the bottom). Needless to say, they are no longer a feature […]

Living on the Wedge


Shoes play a significant role in your finished look.  Wedges over the past several seasons have moved from mod to mainstream and this fall wedges, booties and flats are an important trend. I’m loving the softer, sleeker looks of wedges and booties for fall trends.  In the past it’s been all about the gladiator and […]

Style Doesn’t Have a Size

“Look for the woman in the dress.   If there is not woman, there is no dress” -Coco Chanel This quote from Coco Chanel says it all.  When I read this I thought of a woman wearing a sack to hide her body.  The reality is that the baggier we wear our clothes the bigger we […]
