Holiday Fashion Tip

Hooray for the holidays! Now that we're getting closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas, I wanted to share a little holiday fashion tip about sparkling your holiday-wear for upcoming parties....

Vary the degree of shine between items in an outfit. 
People should admire your style, not be blinded by it!

Explaination: Sequins and shine look classic and chic when layered in a balanced fashion.  To score a chic and sparkley holiday ensemble you must know a few ground rules.  For starters, you must select one high-shine piece and add subtle pieces around it.  For example, below, I chose a one-shoulder, mid-sheen dress. Not too shiny and not too dull. The low vibrancy allows us to pair one shiney accessory like these patent-leather pumps (below). I also picked a small black clutch with no sheen to serve as the perfect accent to the "attention-grabbing" shoes and dress.  It's important to let the shiniest piece have the spotlight so you're outfit looks balanced.  In fact, creating this balance, increases your style-factor.

It's easy to pull off a sparkley holiday look if you implement my holiday fashion tip, and balance out the level of shimmer and details.  Let the shiniest piece have all the attention.  Then add accessories or clothes to support its fabulosity - (as Kimora Lee Simmons says!) And, remember, a well styled outfit lets other people admire you instead of blinding them from seeing it! Wishing you a fabulous Thanksgiving, Fashionista!

How to Wear Tall Boots for Curves

A special reader of mine asked for advice on how a curvy woman (with an hourglass shape) can pick the right boot to wear with jeans {Thanks, Heather for the GREAT suggestion!}  I am a proud owner of my curvy body and have had quite a bit of experience in this area. :) I've tried  many boots with jeans to find that a successful combo is the result of the right cut of jean accentuated by height.  Much consideration for these two areas will put you on the right path to your perfect boot. So, here are my tips on how to wear tall boots for your curves!
The Best Type of Jeans to Wear With Tall Boots are Skinny, Jeggings and Straight Leg.  These cuts have less material to tuck inside boots, which make it ideal and most comfortable for you to wear. 

Fundamental Figure Rules: Tall boots in general emphasize the hip and thigh area of the figure.  First thing you'll want to do is wear jeans with a medium to dark denim wash.  This will not only create a glamourous and polished look, but it will minimize the curviness of the hip and thigh area.   You'll look slender and balanced.


To Embellish Or Not?  The goal is to keep a balanced figure. Anything with excessive amounts of fur, lacing on the side, buckles, chains or studs may be too distracting and may disrupt the balance of your figure.  Keeping embellishments to a minimum is always better.  

Heel vs. Flat....I must say both are equally fabulous and work well for curvy fashionistas.  A way to understand which boot is best for you depends on the occasion. Heels are considered a little more dressy.  Are you going to a holiday party? Heels work fantastically! Do you want a comfortable and chic look on the weekends, perhaps running errands? Go for the flats!

Color Counts....Black, Brown & Gray will be your best bet! Anything too bright, like, turquiose or green will throw off your outfit and offset your curves.  If you want to incorporate color into your overall outfit, wear a scarf or bright accessories.


Extra Style Tips: Short Fashionistas (5'-5" and below) shouldn't wear boots over the knee area.  Try going below the knee like these fabulous mid-calf boots pictured above.  Also, take advantage of pointy toe boots.  It has this fabulous power to lengthen your legs to make you appear taller.  {I, personally love this feature since I'm only 5'2!} 

Again, thank you, Heather for submitting your question and I hope this helps everyone determine which boot works best for your curves! I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Love,
Your Fashion Coach

My First Radio Interview!!

Good Morning Fashionista!

Last Friday was my first radio interview! I was a GUEST on Authentic-Self Radio with my fabulous Fashionista friend, Kimberly Englot.  Kimberly Englot is a brilliant Life Coach.  She mentors men and women in finding their purpose and passion in life through a process of uncovering - what she calls: your  'authentic self.'

I was thrilled (to say the least!) when Kimberly invited me to be a guest on her radio show- {I was -soo- doing the happy dance!}  We talked about fascinating topics such as: inner & outer beauty. I debunked the many Fashionista myths.  We had such a blast sharing our inner and outer beauty strengths, just as I know you possess, Fashionista! 

I invite you to check out the recorded version of the show! Authentic Self Blog Talk Radio: Beauty Inside & Out  Afterwards, think about your inner and outer beauty traits.  If you don't mind, share with me below. Let's remember to celebrate them, not hide them!
