Okay, so I’m deviating this week from my style resolution of more color in my life, but I tend to gravitate towards looks like these that are one part chic + one part edgy. There’s something about walking around wearing some skulls and studs that make you feel like you can take on the world.
STYLIST TIP: Avoid looking like you just stepped out of your mall’s Hot Topic but adding subtle edgy hints and mixing them with some more feminine, polished pieces like a tailored blazer or heels.
p.s. If you haven’t checked it out yet, the etc… online shop is finally up-and-running so you can rock some of your own arm candy—even in NEON for a limited time!
Rag and Bone mens shirt (c/o my hubby) / Madewell jeans (sold out, but similar style here) / Aerosoles shoes (only $30 at Marshalls, similar here) / EKammeyer headband worn as a necklace / vintage Coach bag (c/o my mother-in-law) / Warby Parker glasses / Kiel Mead ring / all other jewelry, vintage.
Every now and then I get sick of my wardrobe (believe it or not) and turn to the other side of my closet to swipe one of my hubby’s shirts to try something new. I love the challenge of taking something 3 times too large and making it look flattering. I guess that’s why I am a stylist.
STYLIST TIP: The key to wearing menswear inspired pieces—or in this case, actual menswear—is to mix it with feminine silhouettes like a curvy jean or a sexy wedge.
STYLIST TIP: No time to take out the ironing board to press your button down? No excuses. Use your flat iron (or your girlfriend’s) like my go-to Chi to at least press your collar, cuffs, and placket, staying clear of the buttons.
Okay, so it’s only Wednesday, but I’ve been working non-stop for the past week, so I’m ready to recap my week for you. It’s been a busy one with a lot of fun things to look at.

This was a gorgeous location to shoot a catalog in NYC. Too bad it was so windy on the roof that the poor model almost toppled over in her heels.

I took fashion to the playground with my nephews and friends while prepping for a photoshoot in Boston.
I spotted Manolo Blahnik shoes that are to die for while prepping at Neiman Marcus in Copley Center. Not sure where I’d wear these to though…
More realistically, I would love to own this House of Harlow 1960 clutch from Neiman Marcus (similar online).
Styling in action.
More of me in action. Glamorous, I know.
This dress had the most amazing texture, from my favorite shot from one of the shoots that I worked on that will be published in June. Be sure to check back from the actual scenes to the behind the scenes.

My gorgeous (and also stylish) art director friend, Sara, and I felt a bit out of place the other day while strolling through Peekskill, New York.
We were definitely overdressed to pick up iced coffees at the Peekskill Coffee Shop, but it was a necessary trip with the time we had to kill between our friends’ wedding ceremony and reception. It sparked a lot of turned heads and cat calling, as we were pretty dolled up for a Saturday afternoon in the ‘burbs.
I love being able to dress up and my physically demanding job rarely gives me the opportunity to. It was so fun to feel like a scene from Sex & The City, with our cocktail dresses and heels, grabbing coffee. If only every day were that glamorous!
