I have been keeping something from you…..

 

Hi Hi!

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!!!

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!!

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:

 

 

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

Look Beautiful And Put Together The Easy Way

No matter the time of year, dresses are just an easy way to have a “put together look” .

The only difference now is needing to put tights underneath to keep warm.

Use tights/ hose to your advantage to edge up the look or keep it sleek.

Wear a black dress with navy tights & black, or a brown dress with black tights & brown booties, (toss on a necklace or scarf if it feels right!).

If you’d like to just throw on a dress, these are great for a bootie, riding boot or great loafer.

Since the dresses are so bold, just toss on black tights & you’re good to go!

It’s all about getting dressed with ease!

 

 

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.
