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 so much love to you and your family!
I love and adore these pieces and now they’re on sale – so I had to share the love! Links for each item below.
My fave things on sale at Anthro!
I hope this holiday season has been an absolute delight!
Happy New Year,
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 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!!
I am diving into each style for the fall season and this week’s emphasis is on the military trend that is seen on the streets and on the shelves of North Shore Exchange, a shop I just adore!
The store carries some beautiful pieces, and I’ve focused on a few of my favorite looks! Their recent reduced prices have made these items irresistible to pass up. (Did I tell you that you can now make purchases online?!) Check them out!
This name first came about as a tagline stating that “I don’t JUST style.” The more I began to say and write it, the phrase began to stick. I don’t JUST style. I work with individuals to create an all-around image. I see each client as a blank canvas with their own style, own look, and own personality. I combine my styling and psychology backgrounds to help my clients feel great about themselves inside and out (of your closet). My hope is that all my clients will exude confidence in the workplace, out on the town, or on a weekend getaway becausee of their wardrobe.
