Ahh the Emmy's.  Can I be honest and say I watched about 5 minutes of it before I almost died of boredom.  But the dresses, oh my the dresses!  So beautiful and the colors, they made me proud!  There were a few I have to say that I was like, what like, what the heck? Here are my picks for Best of the Emmy's Red Carpet Sofia Vergara - Love it!! Julia Stiles - Beautiful Kate Winslet - Simply stunning! Martha Plimpton - Fabulous Claire Danes - She looks radiant Nina Dobrev - So fancy! Julie Bowen - love that the dress isn't just black Sarah Hyland - so...

Hey Fashionistas, Wow Fashion Week was a blur and all the stars and wannabes were out in full force.  Alexa Chung ummm I am not quite sure what kind of look she was going for here, so I will just say what a style miss she is.  Sorry bout it! Olivia Munn on the other hand, who I just saw in I Don't Know How She Does It, is stunning.  Love it!!  My style hit! What do you think?  Hit me up @KaraAllan on Twitter Kara@KaraAllan.com KaraAllan.com Ciao, Kara...

I ventured out to Fair Oaks to pick up some makeup from MAC and sat down in the seating area behind Starbucks for a bite to eat and what did I see!  A vision of style sitting across from me.  Michelle was having a conversation with Kim, her District Manager from one of my style favorites, Michael Kors.  I love, love, love her look! Clean, crisp and sophisticated! Bertha is a mom of two boys and I love that she is not in jeans, sweats or some other sloppy mom gear.  She looks chic and comfortable.  Love it! Her boys were...

So here I am again, the fashion stalker at the quarterly lunch at INOX restaurant in Tyson's corner, checking out the styles in between bites while enjoying Hulya Aksu's, Founding Publisher of I Am Modern magazine's talk. Erika is on the left and wearing BCBG, and Eileen is on the right wearing Diane Von Furstenburg, (wow Ms. F. sure is popular this season.)  I love how they are wearing complimentary colors!  Both ladies jewelry is divine! Hulya is far left, wearing Banana Republic, I love the pink! Claire is smoking in a turquoise number from Muse, Heidi looks darling in a navy...

I am always alert to great style, do in my daily travels I love to add ladies, and men who look great.  Below are three ladies I thought fit the bill. Cynthia know her body type and dresses it well!  She always looks chic and ready to show anywhere be it the Tower Club, The White House, or jet setting to her next destination. Go Cynthia! You just never know where you are going to see great style.  I was in target looking crazy just coming from the gym when I ran into this lovely lady sporting a...

Besides my business, I am a full-time student at George Mason University so of course I am always on the look out for students that are well put together.  I was leaving my IT class on Tuesday and one of my classmates had walked out in front of me with the cutest coat!  It went so well with her outfit  and immediately I was intrigued.  Where did she score this fashion find? I approached her and complimented her on it and asked her if I could take her picture.  Her name is Diana and she proceeded to tell me how...

I was wandering around in Ikea at Potomac Mills in search of storage bins for my kids messy rooms when I stumbled upon a very stylish woman in the picture aisle.  It is rare to find great style, rarer still to find on a random day in Ikea. I love love love the neutral palette but the shoes were what captured my heart.  She said she got them from New York, which figures. Unfortunately we are hard pressed to find gems like that around here. This woman had what I call Sprezzatura which means is an Italian word originating from Castiglione’s...

Believe it or not, when I was young  I was a tomboy.  I climbed trees, ran through creeks and played in the woods.  It wasn't until I was a tween, that I really became interested in makeup and clothes.  In my late teens, I started working in retail and really began being interested in helping people to choose outfits that were flattering on them, not just making a sale. After I had my first child, I felt a little lost.  I had a little trouble getting back to my pre baby weight and didn't feel very pretty.                                       It wasn't fun feeling...
