Kendra Scott Jewelry for Headshots

The Kendra Scott store in Dallas has generously loaned me tons of their great pieces for my upcoming headshots.  Here is the smattering of gems I will be wearing.  If you are interested in purchasing any of these pieces, please contact me for information on pricing and to schedule a pick-up/drop-off. 

Which piece is your favorite?  I love the giant, turquoise earrings.  Kendra’s earrings are fabulous, but I have always struggled to wear them because they are so heavy.  The Kendra Scott Dallas store recently introduced me to Lobe Wonders, a fabulous companion for their products that they are selling for $6 per box.  Lobe Wonders stick to that back of your ear lobes and support heavy earrings so that they don’t tug.  Fabulous!  Now my clients and I will be able to wearing Kendra’s lovely jewels everyday.

How To Get Winter Style Icon Elle Macpherson’s Look In North Texas

Layering is a big trend this winter season, and Elle Macpherson is one celebrity who knows how to play the layering game.  Her mixture of fur, leather and denim looks effortless and city-chic.  But, with all those layers, recreating Elle’s outfit could get pricey, fast!  I’ve managed to put it all together for under $200.  And with so many versatile layers, you are sure to add much than a $200 value to your winter wardrobe.

The outer layer of Elle’s outfit, and the main focal point, is her black fur vest. Now, wearing fur can be tricky as it starts looking bulking, especially over so many layers.  As I tell my clients, “You should always look like you are wearing your clothes, not like your clothes are wearing you!”  The key to keeping trim in these layers is to select a fur piece that is sleek and smooth so that it doesn’t add extra bulk to your waistline.  I like this faux fur vest from Dillard’s for $58.80 because it also has a knit back, which contours to the body instead of looking boxy.

Trench Coats: Basic is Better

This fall, I have been purchasing a lot of trench coat for my clients.  Much of this may be that with the heat still is full swing in Texas, no one wants to try on wool coats!  But when selecting a trench coat, it is important to look for one with very basic shape.  Many trenches are designed with a plethora of pockets, buttons and epaulets.  Basic is better when wearing a trench coat.  Here are my rules for perfection in your trench coat selection:

Leopard Trench Coat with Simple Structure

1) Opt for single breasted.  Double breasted trench coats typically widen your mid-section.  I don’t know a single lady who wants that!

2) Skip the pockets across the bust-line (unless you want to give the illusion of a fuller top half)!  Pockets can be tricky, as then can shorted and widen you. 

3) Shoulder epaulets are okay, as long as you are not broad-shouldered.  This will expand the shoulder-line.

4) Opt for pockets that are on a diagonal, rather than a horizontal.  Horizontal hip pockets will increase the hip-line.  Also not something most women want!

5) Select a trench in a super fun pattern or color.  Afterall, if you are going for basic construction, you definitely want your pattern/color to be visually intriguing.

 

Happy trench coat shopping!

Style Show for Neiman Marcus: Fall 2011

I love presenting style shows for Neiman Marcus, and this fall has been no exception.  It is always fun to hang out with my clients and talk fashion trends.  Oh course, it helps when the fashion trends you are talking about come from Neiman’s…their pieces are gorgeous!  My favorite find during the style show is a snake bangle by Alexis Bittar.  I really want it to come live with me.  Maybe around Christmas time???  Here are my photos of the event.  I got so busy speaking that I didn’t have anyone take photos of the models dressed in my “looks.”  I’ve noted this issue for next season!  Take a peak and think on your favorite trends for the season and how you would like to incorporate them into your fall wardrobe.  Happy shopping!

My two mannequins that provided the backdrop for the style show.  Aren’t they lovely?

Rachel Zoe jacket and hot pink blouse.

Alexis Bittar bangles.

70’s inspired medallion necklaces.

More bangles (my snake cuff is in the middle)!
