Amazing Custom Cards

 

 

 

I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this product.  I would be doing a disservice if I didn’t give you ALL the details of why this will be my go-to card company

 

Do you have a Baby Shower, Graduation, Birthday party, or Birth Announcement coming up and need invitations?  I have recently found a company, Basic Invite, that has FANTASTIC options at a great price. Check this out…….

Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.

Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.  This is such a lifesaver!

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with envelopes as they are with the invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Address Capturing Service – Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.

Foil – Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

 

Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51

Closet Organizing Goodness

 Chicago Personal Stylist
Here is Step 1 of my 5-Step Closet Goodness guide. I had the amazing organizer, Carrie Kempler from Chicago Spaces In Order,  come into my house and it has whipped me into shape.  Although daunting, such a breath of fresh air to see areas of our place in a different (nicely organized way).  Chicago Personal Stylist
I’m not sure if it’s the “nesting” thing I have going on before the arrival of the new little bean, or simply just wanting to have everything looking fab.  (Perhaps  it’s both?!).
So this got me thinking…why not share one of my organizing tips that you can use in YOUR closet?!
 Chicago Personal Stylist
I really broke it down to make it doable (& in a timely manner)!  I hope it’s super helpful to you & the goal is to make getting dressed easier because you can see everything…and have tossed what is just not needed/worn!

I have been keeping something from you…..

I feel like I’ve been holding out on you with this tidbit of knowledge. And yes, as you can see the pictures below, I’m talking about something as simple as a tank top :o)

I typically like to show fun pieces,  tips on how trends should fit, or where to find a certain piece but have failed to share with you something so basic.

The MASSIVE benefits of this small item are this:

*If you wear your shirts and  holes are getting created right where your pant button rubs it. This will prevent that from happening.

*Try wearing a tank to elongate a top.  You may not be into the crop tops or even ones that skim your pants.  Add a tank underneath to change the look & feel more comfortable

 

*A tank (especially the lycra ones!!!!) seem to really hold us in. Whether or not you have anything to “hold in,” wearing something underneath (if your clothing allows) gives your top half a very smooth, beautiful look.

 

You may already have in your drawers and wear them, but just last night I had a client that didn’t realize all the tops she could wear when putting a tank underneath (which is what stemmed this email!).

You know I love to shop local, so in addition to the tanks you can order,  I have also included a link to a store here in Chicago that carries one of my favorites…..Handle With Care

 

Sending much love today!!!

Annie

Key Ingredients to “Put-Together” Looks.

Key Ingredients to “Put-Together” Looks…With Links to My Faves!

Some of the “pain points” my clients tell me they are struggling with:

-“I just want to look put-together”
– “I need clothing that allows me to be comfortable and cute”
-“A lot of bloggers are in heels and it’s just not me or doable”
-“I love how “so and so” always has a complete look”
-The list goes on…

My hope is to give you a tidbit of information to help you pick out your outfits confidently!
Like I always say, fit is everything and simply having pieces you love in your wardrobe.  (Toss what isn’t working, but a newsletter coming soon on that).

Here are my key pieces for easy day-to-day or weekend looks:
1. A striped tee or a tee with graphics or detail.
2. A jean that allows you to move and groove. Try a dark grey or color.
3. An outer layer that could be a sweater, jacket, or vest.
4. A scarf to bring color/depth to your look.  Or a long necklace.
5. A sneaker or bootie that is comfy
Bonus: a nice lip balm/gloss/lipstick  (bring a little color without needing makeup)

The pieces I’ve picked are to show you my fave items that I think makes a quick, easy, versatile look.  Mix and match is the name of the game!

Have a great rest of the day.

With Joy,
Annie

 

Support Local Businesses This Holiday Season

Support Local Businesses This Holiday Season


Chicago Personal Stylist

 

I hope you are able to spend some time shopping in local shops and boutiques this Holiday Season.  Shopping local keeps the money flowing through our communities, helps build the local economy and helps the community grow.   Usually, you will find that the shopping experience within a local shop is a more distinctive and personal.  There are such incredible boutiques with some of the nicest people running them!!   You never know what hidden gems you may find.  Take this blouse, for example,  it was a “shop local ” find from North Shore Exchange.

Mixing Giving Back With A Great Jeans Brand

Chicago Personal Stylist

 

Mixing giving back to feed those in need with a great brand (with the BEST jeans) is a match made in styling heaven!

Part of my mission in doing what I do as a stylist is to give back to our community. I love shopping at the local boutiques, volunteering at the soup kitchen with my husband, and helping out when I can.  So when the opportunity arises that I am able to style people while the money goes to a cause, I’m ALL in!

 

Join me at Madewell downtown, Tuesday the 21st, with my styling team!  Jenna, Lindsay, & I will be putting looks together, finding the best accessories for your outfits, and talking about what best fits your body.  A portion of the proceeds will go to Common Pantry, to help with providing on Thanksgiving.

No pressure to shop, but feel free to come on in and check out the store!  I would love, love to see you!!

 

 

When: November 21st 6-8pm

 

Where: 932 North Rush Street

Why: Early holiday shopping/ shopping just b/c and giving back
