It's no secret that fall is most folks favorite time of year for many obvious reasons but it is absolutely my favorite season for dressing. So many extra layering options, cozy sweaters, warm jackets, and opportunities to mix and match old pieces in fresh ways.
We all go through seasons of feeling completely uninspired by the items in our own closets. Rather than immediately running out to go shopping, I have found it helpful to do a little shake-up of the pieces you already own.
Everyone has them in their closet...jeans and a t-shirt. I was recently back with my friends at KATU's Afternoon Live sharing creative and fun ways on how to style these classics in fresh ways. Check out the full segment...
The start of every new year brings with it a desire for all things new including fashion. Style trends, by definition can be very temporary and difficult to know which ones to pay attention to and which ones to steer clear of. That being said, I’m excited to share a few of my favorite style trends that were around last year and are still going strong in 2017! Hopefully this will bring some fresh inspiration and new focus for things you already have in your wardrobe.
We all have them in our closet, those items that are awesome on so many levels and yet something just seems...off. Maybe you were excited about certain aspects when you bought it and now you reach to put it on, look in the mirror and then take it off and hang it up again. I had many items in my own closet with that same story. So I decided to do something about it and, for a little money and bit of effort, I have a whole new selection of pieces I can't get enough of!! Let me tell you how I did it...
Working with Alison has changed my life in so many ways. That may sound silly but wearing clothes that accentuate who i am makes a difference in how i and others perceive me. People noticed the change immediately and 10 months later still make positive comments about my clothes and how i look. She has a great sense of style but also works to understand your style (or what you want it to be).
OMG! Alison is AMAZING. Seriously, EVERYONE should do this at least once in their life. I had just left a terrible relationship, was recovering from a chronic illness and my self esteem was in the toilet. I'd been living in sweat pants. I gave Alison the brief of wanting to look effortlessly chic - and she NAILED IT. I have an amazing wardrobe now full of clothes that I can easily piece together and it's all amazing quality stuff that will last me many many years. She even got me back into the skinny jeans that I missed so much! A friend commented the other day that I looked effortlessly stylish - more proof that Alison totally hit the look I was going for. Thank you Alison! I'll look forward to working with you again in Summer! :)
I loved trying on the clothes Alison selected as she pegged my taste so well, the try-on process was quick and focused and I came away with great clothes that I wear with pride and receive endless compliments. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone. They say if you force yourself to smile, you can end up feel happier even if you start out sad. What can I say - new clothes that made me look good made me happy!
As a singer-songwriter it is important for me to be current and look good on stage as well as in everyday life. Alison came alongside me and helped me evaluate my current closet as well as make recommendations for future purchases. She helped me put together great outfits that fit my body type and my personal style. She went shopping with me and helped me identify the items that would make the most impact on my wardrobe for the best value.
