STYLIST DIARIES: GO GLAM
When dressing to the nines, the alluring show-off side of style is to go overboard on the glamorous elements. MORE sparkle, MORE textures, MORE pieces. Because it shows that you have more to show. Congratulations.
Honestly, anyone can matchy-matchy pile a crap ton of fancy things in one look. Even if the look is compiled of expensive pieces, if all together, YOU don’t shine, then you’ve missed the point.
YOU wear the clothes. The clothes don’t wear you.
We had so many fun accessories to gussy up this killer dress, but when it came down to it, the vintage dress is a great piece and we didn’t want to clutter up the image. Strategic skin and a dress that works with & for your shape beat over-accessorizing 10 to 1.
To quote Coco Chanel, “I always take off at least one piece of jewelry
before I leave the house…to ensure that I am not overdoing it.”

When dressing for a party, it’s not just the dress & accessories
that should shine. Remember that strategic skin we mentioned? During
winter and party season, your skin can take a hit and look dull & dry.
A few simple tips for glowing show-stopper skin:
To again quote Coco Chanel: ” It’s all about how you wear it….on whether it looks real or not. It’s about how you carry yourself and who you are as a person. It’s about being a lady.”
Whatever you wear, whatever you do tonight to ring in the new year, pledge to start off 2016 with the best, most self-loving version of YOU, not anyone else. We love you all, and have been so blessed this year to be a part of your lives, closets and community.
Here’s to another incredible year!
