I believe that STYLE isn’t just defined by what you wear it’s how you live your life everyday.
From what you put on to feel great -- to where you put it on that feels great -- it’s your life and it should feel like you.
YOUR PERFECT DAY
Coffee is brewing and you walk to your closet and pull out one of your FAVORITE outfits just because it's Monday. No need to save it for a special occasion because you have plenty of outfits that inspire you for everyday happenings. Looking at your calendar for the busy week ahead you see that you have a huge meeting with the 'higher ups' on Thursday night and a hot date Friday after work. You pause and quickly go through your virtual lookbook and see that you have the perfect outfit for each event that week.
The confidence in having the perfect suit for the business dinner, and a look that you love for your date puts you at ease. You're dressed in record time and as you head out the door you don't stress about your space. It's the perfect reflection of your style, totally company-friendly and quite impressive.
THE REALITY IS...
You wake up in the morning and stand in front of your closet where you have TONS of clothing, but don't see a single thing you want to wear! You just grab the first thing you see (and trust it pairs well because that's what the personal shopper told you at the store) and call it a day.
You head to your living room for those notes you'd been up late working on, glance over the space shaking your head knowing it feels sad and lifeless. You've been meaning to finally get some 'nice furniture' and accent pieces that pull the space together but who has the time for that? You're running late to work and stressing over what you're going to wear to the huge meeting with the 'higher ups' on Thursday and that date you reluctantly agreed to be set up by a coworker Friday after work.
You try to follow EVERY fashion must read blog and 'influencer' on Instagram like @whowherewhywhenchampagneandallthatsparkles and @themustfollowmensweardapperguy.
You've worked with 'personal shoppers' in stores (that's why you have so many tags hanging in your closet that will never get worn). You've also tried every subscription service under the sun promising to help create the STYLE you want by answering just a few questions that will magically change your life.
When you're comfortable in your own skin and have a space that reflects who you are, it shows.
WHY ARE YOU STILL STUCK?
Shouldn't you be able to pull outfits together that you love and feel great in with ease?
Wouldn't you love to come home to a space that feels uniquely yours?
You crave synergy between your clothing and living space -- having a style & overall aesthetic that is unique to YOU.
Whether your concentration is on menswear, womenswear or the ever amazing ready-to-wear collection of the season -- you are ready to invest in something that will be life changing. If a stranger on the street compliments your jacket, don’t you immediately stand a little taller when you say ‘thank you’? Imagine feeling that way ALL the time. Imagine that!
The struggle is real, and YOU are NOT alone.
What if there was someone out there, who could help you achieve your style goals? Un-complicating what seems daunting and working with you, hands-on in your life....
I had spent a decade in the fashion industry and most of it was spent in the corporate design world. In the beginning that was great! Coming from a small private label company where I was picking buttons, linings and thread colors all day to being a part of a small but mighty division where I worked with almost every function to get the product from inspiration to inception. Towards the end (seven years in) I just didn’t want this life anymore. It was draining.
I’ll never forget the night I decided enough was enough. I looked out the window at the glow of Times Square while sitting in a dark cubicle with only the light coming from the elevator bank at eleven o'clock at night and thought “I am not dying here. I’m not going out this way.”
I wasn’t about to die in Times Square!
Not for that job.
A feeling of absolute certainty came over me at that moment. I stopped what I was doing, packed up my bag and started my new journey.
Every morning you have two choices.Continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them.
Now 4+ years into this new shiny life I get to see who I’m helping. I work with them and advocate for them DAILY. My clients are my heros and each and every one of them make what I do worth every ounce of work. Each late night that I spend working on something for a client is one million times more rewarding then re-coloring that print table or sourcing those buttons.
Now I get to help people one on one and actually make a difference in their lives.
I'm here to make fashion and design less intimidating and inspire you to be confident in your ability to take charge of your personal style. I’m not a ‘fashionista’. I just happen to be really good at solving problems. That’s my jam. Nothing about my life is highly glamorous except my collection of shoes. If I went broke tomorrow I would literally be the woman living on the corner with her dog and shoes!
