Bringing You Some EXTRA LOVE

Happy Happy Valentine’s Day to YOU!!

This day brings some extra love that I always hope it carries out throughout the year. But come on, telling people you adore just how much they mean to you…doesn’t get any better!  That being said… THANK YOU for being so incredible. It’s a joy to work with you. I truly mean it!  Sending you so much L O V E today (& always).

I included a cheesy picture to show my this love :o)

Also! I’ve had inquiries on how I distress denim at my parties and I want to share the wealth through a video tutorial. I really hope it helps if you’ve been wanting to distress your own denim!

 Painting, patches, and beads are also something so great to do with old denim.  It’s therapeutic, anything goes (there is no right way),  AND you will have denim that no one else will have – a total bonus!

Enjoy and have such a lovely day.

Much Love,
Annie

Curious About A New Style or Look?

Chicago Personal Stylist

 

Have you been wondering about a new style or look? Do you see things on Pinterest and wonder how it would look? Go ahead, be BRAVE, give it a whirl.  It is good to try new things in life.  You will never know how it is going to look unless you try out that new style or look. Today, I am trying out the Bohemian feels (along with chills in this Chicago winter without a coat).  Go try on something edgy or a color you have never worn.  You may hear the compliments roll in, or just feel amazing knowing you’ve found something new to wear.   If it does work, you found something new to wear.  So go out and have fun.  Try something new today in this New Incredible 2018.  Happy Happy New Years to YOU!!

 

I love seeing people have fun with fashion and trying new styles.  Did you try something totally new and out of the norm? Tag me on Facebook and share your new style.  You can find me HERE!

How Do You Tie Your Scarves?

Clients often ask “how do you tie your scarves?” So I thought I should share with you all the best ways I like to tie mine.  A scarf can add quite a bit of flavor to an outfit without much effort!  Go floral, bright, neutral, striped, textured…whichever feels best with your look.  I hope this helps:

 

 

A Great To Piece To Have In Your Closet

Chicago Personal StylistCapes……such an easy “throw on and go” piece.  It’s cozy with such ease that it works over jeans, skirts, and even workout pants!  This is just one of those pieces that gives you a put-together look without much effort.

 

You can go with color or a more subdued sort of Ralph Lauren-esque look.  Below are some of my favorites.  Enjoy!!

My Tips On Getting Ready For Date Night

Date nights are incredible and never seem to happen enough.  But when one arises, you want to be ready for it (and feel sassy as well!).

They always seem to sneak up or you try to fit it in quickly right after work. With the rush of it all, even if it’s on a weekend, it’s still tough to “just throw something on & add lipstick” …and still feel beautiful. Here is a quick run-down of ideas/my thoughts on how to feel fun and pulled together for the date nights with your partner (or your gals).

Great essentials for any style are:
A silk blouse  (white or patterned)
Jazzy earrings
Your favorite hair product that is travel size
Black sleeveless turtleneck
A pencil skirt (floral or black)
And of course Lipstick
A black suede booty

Jean Hems For Fall

Jean Hems For Fall:

Denim is such a go-to and designers and brands have “stepped it up” with making simple jeans have a bit of a twist. Distressed hems can be found anywhere from Target, to Anthropologie, to Mother.  
I think these bottoms give your look an instant edge. I love booties, sneakers, and heels with these raw and cut ends.
If you’d like to take this trend one step more, you could try the button-fly. This is more of a 70’s vibe that is coming back for this Fall.  Try a new pair or make your own jean bottom to jazz up your jeans this season.

Beautiful Silk Scarves

Argaman and Defiance

One of my favorite parts of my job is shopping local, meeting new designers, working with Boutiques, and simply making connections.  One I want to rave about is the designer of the incredibly beautiful, fun and funky brand, Argaman and Defiance.

The best part is I have already found that no matter my clients’ style – their scarves can be tied into any look.  I got a chance to visit the studio and it has an aura of creative awesomeness (if that is even a description?!).  Here is the link to check it out for yourself.  Shop local and still be stylish? A total win-win.

Upping Your Style With A Pop Of Color

When you open your closet, do you notice a sea of neutral basic colors like black, white, grey or brown? Did you know you can change the look of your outfit with a simple, quick trick?   One of my favorite ways for upping my style is with a POP OF COLOR. Take a basic look and make a statement with COLOR. Get ready to set yourself apart from everyone else with these easy color style tips.

  • Throw on your Favorite shade of Lipstick.  (My favorite brand is Mac.)
  • Add on a colorful Necklace or earrings
  • Put on a skirt or pants with fun colors (Got these great pants for a client from Anthropologie)
  • Don’t forget the purse, this can be a great source of color.
  • Turn up the color by making a statement with a colorful dress.
  • Opt for a pair of shoes with character and a splash of color.

Don’t be afraid to add life into your outfits. Upping your style has never been easier.  If you are going out or staying in, you can add POP OF COLOR  in simple ways.

 

 

 

 

 

A Store To Know About

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!
