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...

I just love the ladies below, they always show up looking fab!  Kevin Liles and his lovely Bride to be, Erika Jones, get double points!   [caption id="attachment_211" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Elizabeth Hurley"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_212" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Reese Witherspoon"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_214" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Charlize Theron"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_213" align="alignleft" width="209" caption="Kevin Liles and Erika Jones"][/caption]...

As I stated before, I am loving when I see great style so I am putting those ladies and men on display.

What is beauty?  Where does our idea of beauty come from?  For most of us, the media and the magazines give us our ideas about beauty and the standards that we can't possibly measure up to.  The part they leave out if how important a part your inner beauty plays into the core of your very being.  Our beliefs about ourselves usually starts when we are young from our parents, our fathers in particular.  My father would tell me how pretty I was, but for whatever reason, I didn't believe him. He spoke the words but it didn't resonate in...

I am really beginning to like casual style.  All my life I have been a girly, dress up kind of woman, but I am really digging Kelly's look here. She's casual but still looks like a movie star!

I am loving Victoria Beckham's new line for Spring 2010.  I think that Victoria has such grace and style.  I love that some of these dresses has a 50's style Grace Kelly look to them. The black dress with the zipper is my favorite! Bravo Victoria!
