• shoes/boots

    It’s that time of year again, and thankfully we have people like McKenzie to show us how to wear boots in the sometimes awkward in-between weather that takes place in the transition of summer to fall.  How do you dress for 40 degrees in the morning, but 80′s in the […]

  • silhouettes/A-line

    The high waisted everything has made a come back.  And I absolutely love it.  Why?  Because the high waist makes such a great silhouette.  You can wear it form-fittingly, in a pencil skirt or skinny jeans, or like this, with the A-line shaping the skirt. True, not all of these […]

  • styles/the young professional

    This is the first of a new series on young professionals highlighting unique ways to dress for the office while pushing the limits on classic cuts, colors, and textures. I spotted Brin in one of the best outfits I have ever seen her wear the other day.  Her ruffled white […]

    Neutrals are in. Big time. Have I mentioned that yet? Gabrielle gets it- hence the dark brown leather jacket and dark tan pumps with the wood heel.  This rich color in the shoe is a great alternative for the nude colored heel you are seeing in most every store now […]

  • colors/red

    Sometimes we are inspired by a piece that is out of the ordinary.  When Brenna woke up this day, she decided it was a kind of day that needed bright red lipstick. That red then inspired the rest of her outfit- complementing it with the small red/white polka dots, the […]

  • how to/bargain shop

    Ross & Jordan emailed me last night with these pictures.  They were so proud of their thrifting treasures they had found.  Ross’ sport jacket he got for $2.50, and Jordan’s dress she found for $8.  Both are classic pieces that they can wear for a long time to come, and […]

  • texturess/embroidery

    Bonny Jean wears clothes with such ease and grace, no matter if it’s a large sweater and tights, or if it’s a perfectly proportioned dress with a bodice.  This dress was her grandmother’s.  From Switzerland.  That is simply the quaintest. It has the curves built into it to give her […]
