My Example

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

I am trying to teach my daughter about viewing her body in a positive way.  She’s two.  You might think that’s too young, but I’ve realized I actually need to teach myself before I can expect her to learn.  I had this thought when she was first born…What if my daughter was able to grow up and look back on her childhood and not remember hearing me talk poorly about my body.  I know, you just scoffed or rolled your eyes!  The truth is, I might not be excited about the current state of my shape, but why does that need to be something I speak out and draw attention to?  

If I want my daughter to grow up to be a confident and secure women, I figure I can start with some of the things that will form her thinking right now.  She will learn to talk about her body based on the example I give.  The words we use are powerful, so choose them wisely!

Denim

Friday, October 11th, 2013

As seasons and wardrobes are transitioning, I’ve had several clients over the last couple months ask about denim. Denim is the backbone to a great fall wardrobe and can often be overlooked because it usually is playing the “supporting role” in an outfit as opposed to being the statement piece. Before you get adventurous with your denim selections, it is important that you have in your wardrobe a pair of jeans that fit awesome and are a dark wash. The “cut” of the denim is your preference, but the fit is exceedingly important. Here are a few guidelines that might assist you in your search for denim:

The petite girl…
A standard straight leg jean is an excellent “go to.” Boot-cut jeans can make the length of your leg look shorter.

The busty girl…
Many (not all) busty females will have slender legs causing them to want to show off their slenderness with skinny jeans. Although I LOVE a great pair of skinnies, to achieve a balanced and proportionate look, have a pair of jeans that have a wider leg (understand me, I am NOT saying to wear bell bottoms) that can add the necessary volume to balance a larger chest.

The extra curvy girl…
If you have some height and are well proportioned throughout the leg, boot-cut jeans can play up your curves. If you are petite, your best guidelines are a combination of the two from above. You want to use the width of the leg to bring balance to your look as a whole.

2013 Spring/Summer: Black & White Color Combination

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

Black and white.  This high contrast color combination is very popular this season.  It is in color blocking, pattern, on shirts, skirts, dresses, even pants (proceed with caution)!  When wearing these two colors together, you can add a pop of another color or just leave the two colors to stand alone.  There isn’t too much to this trend, pretty straight forward…black…and white!

THE TAKE-AWAY:  This “trend” is easy.  Odds are, most of you have some combination of black and white already in your wardrobe.  So, be intentional and give this one a try!
