I am sure that you have a favorite pair of heels (or boots) you go to every Monday morning when you want to be comfortable. Or you bought a really expensive pair of leather shoes and don’t want to buy another pair right? Well if you could believe it that is what I used to do because I never really tried leather polish or taking them somewhere to get cleaned, I just simply threw them away (which is horrible I know and I will NEVER do it again unless there is a hole in my shoe lol).

I found the Kiwi shoe polish (in the color brown) at Target for $3.79. It was the best 4 bucks I EVER spent. Call me a dork I know! I cannot believe I have never used this product before and now that I think of it my dad used to polish his Red Wings when I was a kid and I used to think that it smelled like burnt rubber.

Hello all of my fashion friends. If you follow my site on a regular basis you would know that this is my first “fashion look post,” since October 20th. It has been a busy past couple of months with new styling clients, my brother-in-laws 30th birthday in Oregon, Thanksgiving, my god-daughter’s 2nd annual Holiday band concert (she plays the flute) and hosting our first Christmas Eve dinner at our house with our family.

What an amazing year it has been and I thank you all for being there for the ride with me and following/supporting me and my blog. I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions but I thought I would just make a promise to myself to blog at least once a week. It is a wonderful outlet and I love spreading the word on fashion tips and tricks that are easy to do in your home that I have learned on my own, from pintrest or from my clients.

If you live in Arizona you know how cold it has been the past couple of weeks, so this was the perfect outfit to wear yesterday in the cold! It was super comfy (I changed my booties to some black ballet flats). BCBG is running a sale in stores right now where almost everything in the store is 30% off original price and the sale rack is an additional discount as well. I believe the sale is only through today: January 4th, so call before you go!

Check out the first fashion tip of 2015 featuring the jewelry store Kendra Scott at the Scottsdale Quarter on Your Life A to Z.

I wanted to feature the Kendra Scott store because they are my “go to,” when I am looking for unique pieces to dress up my outfits. I broke-down the tips by specific accessories and the segment below features earrings because a lot of my clients ask me how they should be wearing their jewelry and if they are wearing too much or too little with their earrings. So this segment is for all of my clients out there that are standing in the mirror trying to decide which piece to wear with their outfit 😉

Tis the season for holiday parties. Since I was old enough to go to high school dances, I have always loved getting dressed up and decked out. This year was no different, in years prior I have gone gold, I have gone glitter; I’ve done a combo of both. So this year I was ready for something different. My “go to” color of the season is maroon, not just because it is my college color (Go Devils!) but because it goes with just about any skin tone and it looks fab with anything gold.

I was also lucky enough to be able to drive in style to the Go Daddy Holiday Party in this 2015 Toyota Highlander and this SUV was the perfect accessory for the night! It even was roomy enough for my 6 foot 4 husband that always has to scrunch up when he gets into a car. Stay tuned for a video tour of this sweet ride later this week! 🙂

I am always looking for new finds and ways to shop for my clients and for myself; whether it’s finding a new online shop or shopping off of pinterest. Higgle is a new way to do just that…SHOP! This online shopping experience is a cross between Priceline and Pinterest, it allows shoppers to name their price on products and share those offers with friends and other “Higgle” members and anyone can join with just an email.

It’s very easy to maneuver and find what you are looking for specifically, with just a click of a mouse. I am a huge online shopper because being a personal stylist means being out and about shopping at the mall, farmers markets, expo’s and sometimes I prefer to shop in the comfort of my own home (and in my p.j.’s). Below is what the site looks like when you sign on….in the top left corner is an explore button; there you will find different categories to search for ( active lifestyle, fashion, home and even the everyday guy). You are sure to find something that is perfect for you or as a gift for someone special!

Higgle

How it works: What’s cool is that you as the buyer can name your own price, then you share what you want to buy along with the price for others to see and want as well. You as the buyer can utilize your own social influence to get better prices on products anywhere from lamps to a quilted leather messenger bag.

So when you put an offer(s) in on the site and share that offer(s) with others, that is called a “Higgle.” You can follow people and categories to find amazing and fun products! I am a fashion shopper of course, so I had to follow the fashion and jewelry categories and when I log into Higgle, those categories/items are in my newsfeed so I don’t miss anything new. Below are some of my fav finds on Higgle:

P.S. I just noticed a re-occurring theme with all of my favorite finds…..I think I like gold a little too much 🙂

So make sure to check out and sign up on this cool new shopping site and name your price at www.higgle.com and make sure to follow me so we can “higgle,” together!

I always look forward to the 3rd week of every month…why you ask? That means my subscriptions to: Glamour, Baazar, Vogue, Elle and In Style come in the mail. I like to dissect each magazine from beginning to end on Saturday mornings (and take notes of course) on fun “do it yourself” ideas around the home, recipes and of course THE FASHION!

20130201-232341.jpg

Magazines like Baazar inspire me to dress in a way that expresses “Me!” I love bold prints with stripes and neon colors with nude but I can’t buy everything I see in the magazines (I don’t buy the name brands; I find everything at a discounted price). So my magazine dreamin, inspired me to write this blog post today! Must have in my closet and yours:

20130203-111020.jpg
1. A black boyfriend blazer is a must have in your closet! You can dress this blazer up or down. I pair up this blazer with skinny jeans and a cotton tee with some converse shoes for day wear and at night I switch the converse tennis with black pointy stilettos. I also like to wear my blazers going out with bandaged dresses or high waisted mini skirts, with boho tops tucked into the skirt.

2. A pair of dark denim skinny jeans are another essential of mine because they can be worn in any type of event; dressed up or dressed down. I like the fact that I can wear wedges, stilettos, booties and knee high boots with my skinny’s. You can also purchase skinny jeans almost anywhere; my favorite skinny’s are from:
-Wet Seal
-Guess By Marciano
-G By Guess
-Forever 21

3. A little black dress should have been #1 on my list because my little black dress has saved me at weddings, bachelorette parties, fancy dinners and cruises. Black is just an elegant color in my eyes and it can be worn at all of the events I listed above. There have been times that I just accessorized with a pair of diamond studs and my wedding ring and other times where I wore bangles and a statement piece necklace…that is all up to you!

4. A nude basic top can be worn for work or for play! I would wear this top, tucked into a high waist navy blue pencil skirt with nude pumps. Then for play I would wear pair this top with faux leather leggings with gold accessories.

20130203-114704.jpg
5. Faux Leather Leggings will never go out of style! I love this look because no matter what you pair with these leggings; I ensure you will look and feel fabulous! I would buy these faux leggings at:
-Forever 21
-G By Guess
-Guess By Marciano
-H & M (Seasonal)
-Lauren Conrad Collection (Kohls)

6. Peep Toe Stilettos are my most worn pair of shoes in my closet. They are very versatile for any look you are going for!

20130203-120528.jpg
7. A Gold Statement Necklace is an easy piece of jewelry that can complete your entire outfit. I would wear this necklace with any of the outfits I listed above. This necklace is $98 at Lucky.

And there you have it! The 7 essentials to a better looking closet that will make you feel fabulous!

Happy Sunday <3
