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?

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 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.

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!

 

 

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.
