Hi, all! So, I’m pretty excited, today. I’ve been wanting to do this for quite some time, but just never sat down to think it all through until right now…. during the busiest time of year, of course! I have such impeccable timing.
So. Some backstory:
Many of you know I’m a personal stylist, and have owned and managed an online personal styling team across the U.S. + U.K. for the past few years, but I temporarily closed my website earlier this year to lighten my life load for the time being. I do plan to re-open in the near-ish future, but have never stopped styling my own clients. My client roster is still currently full, which is great, but makes me feel terrible when I have to turn people down, because I really love what I do! I wish I had enough time in my life to style every sweet dear that comes my way! I genuinely love to help women with any style sitch, and lend some inspo when needed, which is why I came up with this idea….
I thought it would be fun, and hopefully helpful, to use my blog to offer my personal styling services to you by lending day-to-day style inspiration, as well as interactive personal shopping, by blogging lookbooks – which is exactly how I style my clients! One thing that’s been frustrating to me over the years is that when I find something I love, I order it, then often wait up to a week to get it, and then another week, or several, pass before I get a chance to photograph it for the blog, and by then, what I bought is frequently sold out! The perfect solution for this? Blogging and linking my finds as soon as I scout them, and showing you in lookbook form (as seen below) how I might wear them, and various ways you could style them, yourself! I also plan to blog and link daily outfit ideas, appropriate to the season, along with specific event categories (weekend casual, date night, work, tropical vacay, wedding, holiday party, etc…), and would LOVE your input! Feel free to comment, or email me your suggestions! I’d love to know what categories you’re interested in, and would be more than happy to shop and style them in this format. You could think of this as your own, personal, interactive, magical Style Magazine, where everything on the pages can be adapted by your preferences, and bought by your little fingertips….
That said, here’s the first lookbook! Just a really great, casual, holiday look I recently pulled. If you need to take it up several notches, just swap out the jeans for a sexy pair of leather-like skinnies (I absolutely love these by AG). It’s got everything – plushy velvet, a li’l sparkle and shine, sleek, clean satin, and an alluring, dark-red lip.
PS. If you love the jeans, you can get them 20%-30% off with code: SPLURGE, right now!
Lemme know whatcha think! And what you’d like to see!

I added another velvet blazer option (30% off with code: PRESENTS) + several glitter pump options, below, too.
