Starting the New Year off with a Capsule Wardrobe
New Year resolutions are starting to roll in. It is no surprise that at the top of the list this year is decluttering. This seems like a standing resolution, but after spending a significant amount of time at home this year, we have all become more aware of all of the “extra” we have in our lives. We have also gone through a significant shift in our daily style needs and expectations. With lounge sets on the rise, and softer fabrics becoming more of a staple, we have really paved the way for a fresh look at our own personal style. I want you to know, that it is ok to embrace that shift in style and move forward with a more streamlined approach to wardrobing.
The 10/30 Capsule Wardrobe is my Signature Capsule Wardrobe. Simplistically, the 10/30 means 10 items of clothing that make at least 30 outfits. This all began in 1998, when I started creating travel wardrobes for celebrities. Something light to travel with, but would...

The feeling was a cumulation of more than 2 decades of consulting experience with clients. I have to stay ahead of the trends for my clients, they are on television, and many people see them. And just like every other trend that flies in...
The True Cost of Effortless Beauty
This message has been on my heart for quite some time now. I feel and see so many women chasing the image of effortless beauty every day. We want it, at least a piece of it for ourselves. The thought that I could just roll out of bed, pull my hair tie out and perfectly beautiful waves of golden hair would just fall out drenching my face with the glow of much needed highlights. Throw on a pair of well broken-in jeans, maybe a thermal on a morning like today, and just be, well, effortless. It sounds so freeing, so captivating, and yet so realistic. What does Effortless Beauty actual entail?
We see the fashion blogger that seems to have everything together. Her hair perfectly coiffed and her eyebrows on point. Doing nothing really, just floating along the sidewalk looking off into the distance like she could take on the world, and she does. Effortlessly.
We see a mom on Instagram that has a perfectly simple...
