This room screams for an outfit to be designed around it. Coral, pink, tan, blue, green and splashes of black and white. How delicious is this? I could live in this room all day long. The wall color is so romantic and casts beautiful lighting. Yet the furniture has a masculine flair. It strikes a nice balance.

CoralTanBlueGreenSetting the foundation for our outfit is this Vivienne Westwood striped dress, perfect for the spring season. Shoes are a great way to add in gorgeous color, by way of Jason Wu with these blue satin strappy embellished sandals. Keeping it simple, but impactful, add in a blush quilted clutch, black chandelier earrings and a white enamel bangle. Hmmmm, harmony. 

Just like the room above.

wintertospring13Seasonal transition is tough.

We've been teased plenty. To the point of allergies. Yet, it's still 40-50 degrees outside.

Spring, when do you plan on arriving?

I find the easiest pieces to wear are simple — jeans + layered tee under sweater. Perhaps to the point of falling back on it too much. However, it's climate controlled and practical.

While there are many options, if you're looking for a no-brainer, this one will get you through. You could substitute the sweater for a structured jacket, too. Or, perhaps go for a tunic under skinny jeans. 

And if you are up for the task, mix print on print!

It is such an honor to have the opportunity to dress women from coast to coast, for various occasions. While my preference is always to work in person, distance and time sometimes prevents that. However, that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice a thing, as I have you covered from head to toe. Not a detail left out. 

Nothing makes me happier than experiencing the giddiness alongside (virtually, albeit) my client when she sees the whole look pulled together. Vision turned reality. And it's always magical — for us both.

stillcoldwearWhile we've had some teaser temps, it's still cold outside.

The problem with yo-yo temperatures — when the weather is actually in the normal zone it feels twice as cold. So don't put away those sweaters and fuzzy coats just yet.

After viewing the FW13 runway shows, I'm diggin' neutrals. Starting with light colored jeans. Stir in attitude with this gray Markus Lupfer sequins lip embellished sweater, taupe suede booties and high collar lamb fur coat. Cozy goodness.

Accessorize with a simple structured bag, fabulous watch, a bangle or three and dark hoop earrings.

You are set for a day full of adventure, on the casual side of course!

Awww, clean white. Light. Airy.

I am a big fan of wearing all white. Now more than ever, it's all I want to wear. For the past week, with clients and without, I'm adding more lightness into the closet. There is something so pure and inviting about white. And the fact that the black and white combo is making the most impact this spring, layering crispness into your wardrobe is even more appealing.

Chloé's spring 2013 collection couldn't be more in line with my emotions for the upcoming season. And now that I'm a redhead, these lights looks even better on me!
