It is so easy to get caught up in today’s world of fashion. With all the fashion magazines, ‘reality’ TV shows, and celebrity sightings we come across, how do we not get caught up?! Society doesn’t allow us not to! That is why we must be stronger than ever ladies. And I believe we can do this! How, you ask? By being true to yourself and letting that shine through with everything you do including getting dressed. This may come easily to some, but when you see all the hype about the top trends each season, how do you figure out which ones are for you?? Keep reading and hopefully you will soon be able to determine this for yourself.
I am a stylist. I have been in the retail and fashion world for 18 years and I am here to tell you that just because something is a trend and you happen to love it, it’s not necessarily meant for you. Take for example, the skinny jean. The skinny jean has been such a popular trend in the fashion world since the beginning of last fall. They are here to stay for 2010, but not everyone is going to be able to wear this trend well. Some of you will make the skinny jean work for you. They key is all in the STYLING. You don’t have to be a little skinny girl to wear them. You just have to know that you might need to wear a heel with the skinny jean to make them work for your body. Or you may need to wear a tunic style top with or without a belt to get your most flattering look. Some of you know right of the bat that the skinny jean is not for you. I hope you at least try them and experiment. Fashion is fun and it’s all about being YOU. Don’t try to copy anyone. Buy fashion magazines strictly for inspiration. Don’t feel like you have to own everything you see. Be picky, very picky, no matter what the item costs. Make sure it’s YOU, and make sure you keep in mind what is already hanging in your closet. Shopping my closet is one of my favorite things to do! I find many treasures in there. And they all look like new clothes because of the way I STYLE them. This is one of the reasons why I adore shopping at resale boutiques. They are closets full of treasures! You never know what you are going to find.

You know what they say, one WOmans trash is another WOmans treasure! I truly believe in that!
