Happy Wednesday! Below is another amazing blog post by my Fashion-Guest Blogger Christine! We have all had those days where we look in our jam-packed closet and say…”I don’t have anything to wear,” or “nothing fits me right.” Well this is exactly what happend to Christine, so she decided to write about it to help everyone out there that has the same problem! 🙂

Style On Ladies and Gents!

Last weekend was one of those nothing fits me, nothing feels cute kind of weekends so I busted out the tried and true t-shirt and jeans, my ‘go-to’ casual outfit.

Selling real estate means lots of driving, standing, walking, crouching (for lockboxes) and sometimes scaling a wall. (I’ve done that twice now) It means walking through dirt, gravel, being in homes with no AC and sometimes digging up pavers to reset them to pass an FHA home inspection (I’ve done that, luckily only once).

When I have those nothing fits me, nothing feels cute kind of days when I have to meet clients I have a few ‘go-to’ styles that always do the trick… and I apparently have a ‘go-to’ color too. Blue, who knew?


Left to right//
\\Button up and denim. I like my button ups loose and I typically tuck in the front to elongate my little shrimp legs. Jeans: Express Button up: H&M Shoes: Nine West

\\Fit & Flare. Anthropologie has this style down to a science, I can walk in grab any fit and flare in my size and I know it will always fit perfectly and ALWAYS makes me feel super cute, especially for my body type. Anything cinched at the waist and with a bit of flare makes me less concerned about my Sir Mix-a-Lot lovin’ backside. I’ve made a few Fit & Flare dresses myself, both fitted with a zipper or with an elastic waist, I’m working on perfecting it so I don’t go completely broke thanks to Anthro. Blue Dress: Anthropologie. Heels: Express

\\Black Peplum. Again, cinched and flared, peplum makes me feel girly and cute. I have a difficult time wearing pencil skirts, they always shift upwards as I walk and I have tried MANY sizes and styles…nothing seems to want to stay put. That’s what I love about this dress, I get to have the look of a pencil skirt without it riding up and the peplum flare grazes that bit of my bum that I feel needs to be hidden, at least when I’m with clients. Black Peplum dress: Anthropologie Black Heels: Aldo

\\Circle skirt and loose fitting top. Like the Fit and Flare dress, a circle skirt is something I can toss on and it instantly lifts my spirits, but you have to be careful because depending on the weather, a gust of wind can really lift your skirt! Blue Skirt: Target Top: Ann Taylor LOFT Shoes: Nine West

\\Button up and denim, take 2. This look I straight up stole from the Duchess of Cambridge. I saw her wearing a similar outfit a couple of years ago and I still wear this look all the time. Jeans: Express Button Up: Old Navy Shoes: Express

Everyone has their favorite pair of shoes, favorite blazer that they try to pair with everything in their closet and their favorite shade of lipstick that is perfect for the season! Below are my favorites at the moment!


My first fav is a new primer from Benefit called “Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer.” The difference between this primer and other primers out there, is that this primer is more like a balm. So you will first wash your face, moisturize, apply the primer balm and then apply your foundation or compact and POOF! You have a great 15 hour stay.


These glosses are oldies but goodies NYX! I love that they have a matte finish to them and the lip color lasts for about 6 hours without re-applying 🙂 Another plus is that these babies are only $6 a pop at Ulta! My favorite color at the moment is “Sydney,” it is a pale pink color that is perfect for summer!


Love this black fringe bag from H&M and for only $30 I get a lot of use out of it and it’s also big enough to hold my laptop! I don’t know what it is about fringe this summer but I am seeing it everywhere!


I love a statement piece that can be paired with various looks in my closet. The crystal color stone earrings from J.Crew go with just about everything. I would wear the earrings with almost every color (black, nude, brown, plum purple, turquoise, lime green and coral).


I love to wear maxi dresses! They are so comfortable and easy to wear in the summer time! This maxi is from Privity Boutique in Gilbert. I also like to pair this maxi with a light denim vest or jacket. Another fav at the moment is this gold head-piece. I bought mine at Forever 21 a few months ago and I just love it because I don’t have to accessorize too much because it’s a statement piece within itself 🙂 I always make sure to piece my hair down the middle and lay the t-shaped head piece down the middle of my head. I wear this look when I have straight hair because the head-piece seems to stay in place.


Last but not least is this black jumpsuit I bought at Bebe! It is simple, yet elegant. I recently wore this beauty to a cocktail party with one of my beautiful girlfriends! It was a very comfortable look that I paired with a bright necklace.

It’s that time again! Mani Monday! I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend! The picture above is my nails and the picture below was my inspiration! Hope you like it!


Style On Ladies and Gents!



Simplicity and elegance define his brand and his looks are both sexy and sophisticated. I had the privilege of working with the talented Khanh Nguyen, owner and designer of, “Envy By Khanh.” From a young age, Khanh’s interests and skills prepared him to become a global fashion designer.


His passion for fashion, paired with a finesse for drawing and sketching, led him to aspirations of becoming a designer that could inspire future generations. Khanh is inspired by designers such as Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and Vera Wang. Bold Lines, bold colors and bold geometric shapes make Envy By Khanh immediately recognizable.

Sketch 2

His looks are typically seen on the runway; so I thought it would be fun to shoot his looks on “real women,” in Arizona. I had the pleasure of working with photographer Jolene Eder with Lemon Heart Photography and make up artist/ stylist Janae Shields (that is a part of my style team). Also special thanks to Jenna Michelle for her hair styling touch! (Below is a shot of the amazing team the day of the shoot!


My vision for this shoot was fun and flirty but at the same time can be transitioned for day or night with just a simple jacket or boyfriend blazer as a layering piece. Every piece from Khanh’s collection has amazing color-blocking and shaping. It makes any and every woman feel beautiful and sexy the moment they slip one of his dresses on. Below are various dresses from his collection that were my favorites! Please make sure to also check out his video below!

I love how just adding a jacket can change the whole look of the dress.

Style On Ladies and Gentlemen!


I look forward to my Monday evenings because I usually get my nails and toes done; it puts a happy spin on my Mondays! I have been going to Azul Day Spa for the past couple months and I have fallen in love! There are so many fun designs and nail art to choose from that I thought it would be fun to post some nail art that will hopefully inspire you to use! All of these designs are with gel nail polish or gel coats (if you’re looking for a manicure that lasts longer than your usual week, consider a gel polish manicure as a substitute for the original manicure. Not only will you be potentially protecting your nails from the repeated wear of original manicures, you’ll also be coating your nail in a protective case of gel and vitamin E).

The picture on the left corner is from Pinterest and the picture in the right top corner is my nails done by Azul Day Spa! I didn’t want to have glitter on every single nail because I thought it was too busy for me since the glitter was very chunky; so I decided just to try one nail on each hand and “POOF” a fun new design!

Fun ombre look with a cool summer color!

Another great color for the summer or even spring!

This is one of my favorite colors because I feel that it goes with everything!

This is a very popular shaped nail that I have been seeing a lot of in various fashion magazines!

I love this simple yet fun nail design. You can do this with almost any color underneath the glitter!

From the looks of it…I am picking a lot of nail colors that I would wear during the summer time! This is one of them! I love the different ombre colors intertwined together. It is a perfect touch for summer!

What girl doesn’t LOVE glitter?

This reminds me of spring-time in San Diego (I have no idea why?)

I hope I inspired you to try something new next time you get your nails done <3

Style On Ladies and Gentelmen!



The best part of being a personal stylist is seeing your client glow, when they walk out of the dressing room in a new look (that they wouldn’t usually pick for themself). I had to share these pictures because I had so much fun with a new client last week!


This client was looking for new work wear looks as; well as casual weekend looks! We shopped at various stores in Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall and had so much fun doing it. If you are looking for a unique gift for the person that has everything, a personal shopper is the way to go! Some of my clients like to come to the mall and try the items on and some like me to purchase the clothing and take it to their home; it truly all depends on the clients needs! 🙂

Happy Friday and Style On Ladies and Gentlemen!


Over the weekend I was reading various fashion blogs from around the world; written by men and women of all ages. It was fun to see the different styles from various age groups. I like to think that I have a wide variety of style from fun and girly to business casual and then to bohemian sheek…. but then what about the other styles out there?! So I thought it would be a great idea to have a Fashion-Guest Blogger on Ro’s Style Blog.


So please email me at and send me your topic ideas for the blog along with a picture of yourself! I will be picking the Fashion-Guest Blogger on Saturday, June 22!

Can’t wait to hear from all of you!

Style on Ladies and Gentlemen <3
