Bringing You Some EXTRA LOVE

Chicago Personal Stylist

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

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


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

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
