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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!

Navy is a great substitute for black. I took this navy blue suit and added a printed shell underneath in chocolate brown and rust for visual interest, along with an animal print belt to define the waist. I chose the shell and belt in the same color family so the prints compliment one another instead of compete, which is important for you to look” pulled together” rather than “thrown together”. Pointy toe pumps in navy below for simplicity due to my prints up top and a chocolate brown eel skin bag to add texture. Business professional attire does not have to be boring and plain. Color, prints, and texture add personal style and flair to your wardrobe. The next time you get dressed I challenge you to add visual interest through an accessory piece (belt, shoes, handbag, hosiery, or jewelry). Happy shopping ladies!
Give your colleagues a treat when you enter the office with interesting wardrobe selections like this sage green ruffle blouse, multi-colored straight skirt, burgundy and rust leather snake skin print belt, and brown leather designer zip portfolio.
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to tuck your favorite pieces away. Layering is a great way to transition your summer pieces into your fall wardrobe.
Live on the edge and pair your neutrals with bold colors like this lime green tank and grape accessories.
A few weeks ago, I officially debuted MONIQUE E4S, a bold ready-to-wear women’s collection that embodies the essence of today’s multicultural, multidimensional woman; SEXY, CONFIDENT, and SECURE. The debut collection features vivid graphics in regal fabrics and colors that will excite the senses through silhouettes that represent spring in all of it’s glory. Take a look at some of the photos from the “The LOOK Houston 2012″ FASHION FOR A CAUSE event.

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!
