Flirty and Fun White Dress

Lace is a huge trend this season and it adds a delicate feminine touch. Teacher of the Year, Kiwonda never wears white, unbeknownst to me, but looks fabulous.  Just in time for spring and appropriate for several occasions and event, from weddings to work! The bell sleeves add a fun vibe to look and minimal accessories to complete the look.

Don’t be afraid to add a touch of color with heels…nude or black cold work, but these red Valentino inspired heels from her closet pair well.

Nicole Dillon

Nicole Dillon was Teacher of the Year at Oglethorpe Charter School. Nicole is definitely the “Do-It-All” woman. She has an enormous heart and oozes a joyous personality.  I captured her personality for the night in a bold Calvin Klein dress from Roz and Ali and all of her gifted accessories from Dillards.

Nicole is a gem, so bright gemstone colors are beautiful against her chocolate skin. This was a perfect look for an evening of recognition, but can be worn on a date night, church or any of her speaking engagements!

Happy New Year!  I haven’t posted since before Christmas…lots of family time, rest and thankfulness.  Of course, i’ve been busy thrifting :).

I’ve been trying to get into Mad Men…and Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks character) is probably my favorite…I love her style. This look reminds me of portraying…being a high powered woman. Especially in this Giorgio Armani pencil skirt.

It’s chilly outside, so there are a few layers with the leather coat and scarf, all thrifted. This look is perfect for the office, conference, doctors, lawyers…anyone. It’s tailored, chic and gives off expensive vibes.

All items, except heels are thrifted/consigned.

Solid Work Dress

I’ve seen many women make a simple (and drab) mistake of pulling a dress out the closet without any thought.  No thought means, its too simple…simplistic without thought.

Summer Styling, Melissa

Over the last week, i’ve had the pleasure of styling a Psychologist, mom and wife.  Needless to say, she leads a VERY busy life and had very little time, patience or passion for shopping or styling herself.  She enlisted me for my services to personal shop, based on the simple fact that I can do it on a budget while remaining trendy and classic.
