    1) Choose a color and go with a monochromatic scheme, various shades of one color,  instead of trying to have every family member wear the same color, which can be very difficult to do.
    2) Choose a analogous scheme, 3 consecutive colors on the color wheel in different tints or shades to create more interest.
    3) Choose a complimentary scheme, direct opposites on the color wheel, this is the safe way to choose the perfect color combination.

    Winter Coats

    Coat Check

    Winter is here and we seem to have completely skipped Fall!  You need a fabulous coat to start the season in style!  You will not go wrong with any combination of the options listed below.

    Coat Check List

    Winter Boots

    Another Part of Me

    Shoes are an extension of you.  They allow you to be nice or naughty, serious or playful, easy or complicated, open or closed, calm or turned up!  This winter let your boots spark the conversation.  It’s up to you to figure out what you want them to say!

    Winter Hats

    The Way She Wears It

    When a woman walks out in a brim you can’t help but notice her……the way it may tilt to one side with ease and attitude.   How mysterious she appears because you can’t see her eyes due to a wide brim.  You can’t help but wonder, who is she???  What you do know for sure is…….”she is wearing that hat.”

    Winter Sweaters

    Let it Snow

    So the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful and since there are places to go wear an oversize sweater in the cold!  Try an oversize sweater with leggings and booties hanging out with friends.  A slouchy deep v sweater worn on or off the shoulders with a boyfriend jean and heels is super sexy for day or evening.  Last but not least, try a cable knit with a short or mid length skirt, tights, and booties for play or work.  Stay warm!

    Hair Talk

    Hair color can brighten up your complexion, make your eyes stand out, and can take years off of your life……in just a few hours!  To go along with the right hair color you need the right hairstyle.  Your hairstyle should frame your face, express your personality, and should ALWAYS remain current to this day and time.

    Change Frames

    Think of your glasses as another accessory to go along with your outfit.  Choose a frame with an interesting color that complements your skin tone and adds balance to the shape of your face.  You also can purchase multiple frames so that you can have a collection to choose from based on your mood and outfit for the day.

    Brow Beat

    Perfect brows are an instant face lift.  They open up and soften your face.  If you do not have any brows, seek out the best Brow Expert to create natural looking brows.  If you do not have brows because you shave them off………STOP, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW AND I AM READING YOU YOUR RIGHTS!  You have the right to put down the tool you have selected to shave your brows off.  You have the right to seek out a professional MUA (make-up artist) or Brow Expert to get immediate counsel.

    Just like it is important to work hard at progressing your career, it is equally important to maintain your appearance.  Invest in a MUA to learn new techniques on how to apply make-up that works for your lifestyle, or visit a make-up counter to find out what products best suit your needs.

    Jean Proof

    Go buy a new pair of jeans to give you a new attitude so you can feel good from your head to your toes!  Everyone owns a pair of jeans, the question is do you own the right pair???  A fabulous pair of jeans should elongate your legs, accentuate your curves, and show off your derrière.

    Fall Coats

    Select a  COAT that makes a statement for the Fall. Choose a color or print that expresses your style or personality, the bolder or brighter the better. It is important to bring some sunshine to those dreary and cold days.


    Fall Boots

    Find a  BOOT  that is FASHIONABLE YET FUNCTIONAL. It may be time consuming and require you to go to multiple stores or to surf the internet but do not give up. It is important to still look fabulous while walking through the snow and on ice.


    Fall Gloves

    Do not forget about your GLOVES. They add a touch of sophistication that makes one take notice. Like what a pocket square does for a man’s suit. All men do not wear them but those who do, we all know who they are!


    Fall Hats

    Purchase the perfect HAT to rock with your statement coat. Try a fedora or wide brim floppy hat, you know you have selected the right one when you walk with a little more sass!

    So ladies here are your tips to make sure you Fall in Love with Fashion. Can’t wait to see pictures of your Fall finds!

    Leggings and tights are another avenue to add style to personalize your ensemble.  Pair a sleek pencil skirt with a chevron pattern tight to wear to work.  Wear a mini skirt with a floral print legging on the weekends.  Try a bold color tight with a printed dress for an evening out.  This Fall be bold be bright!
