Here are top picks for the Best of 2011 from the world of Fabuliss. Enjoy and best wishes for a phenomenal 2012! Training with Clinton Kelly from What Not to Wear and The Chew I took a leap and got an opportunity to train with one of my style idols Clinton Kelly. After a day in New York City, I returned with a new appreciation for how clothes can fit even better with alterations. I recently wrapped up my brief stint as a stylist at his Mall of America store, Perfect Fit by Clinton Kelly, and...

What is a Style Board? If you struggle with how to answer “what’s your style” then a style board can be a great place to begin. When I did my first style boards, which admittedly were merely magazine pages I set aside, it was revealing to look through them and see themes.  My pile of pages helped me understand and begin to articulate what I was drawn to and helped me immensely when it came to shopping. Know that it is perfectly OK to create a new one...

This is hands down one of the most important books I have read regarding how women can close the wage gap.  All thanks to a remarkable friend and client whom I met by being a Best Buy Omega (Chapter 5).

Top Style Picks for the 2011 Academy Awards

Posted by on Feb 27, 2011 in Fashion World, Women's Style | 4 comments

WHAT STOOD OUT? There were four red carpet winners of the night.  From left to right, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Helen Mirren and Natalie Portman. Silhouette is a major part of why I selected these picks.  Each one looks like an hourglass, whether they are one or not.  The fact that they’re simulating that body type is incredibly appealing. The other reason these made the list is color.  While there could be a little improvement, overall they are on the right track. WHAT WOULD I DO...
