Packing for Brazil!

Here are a few pics from my wardrobe appointment with Luzia T. We pulled pieces from her wardrobe for her visit to Brazil, her home country.

It’s important to choose a simple color palette when packing for a trip. This will maximize the versatility of the items you’re bringing. For Luzia’s trip, we chose a simple palette of navy & white. I would normally suggest to Luzia a pop of color to go with a neutral palette, but I trust Luzia will probably accentuate her travel wardrobe with colorful accessories she picks up in Brazil.

What is your color palette of choice when you travel? I’d love to hear from you!

Until next time…Class dismissed!


Suit Shopping with Lashon J.

I went suit shopping with my client Lashon J. last Saturday morning. We had a great time shopping for suits at Macy’s for her GE conference and looked at some “wish list” accessories as well.

I decided that a classic Calvin Klein suit was best because Macy’s sells suit separates in various colors (black, gray, navy, etc). I encouraged Lashon to purchase the gray suit (blazer, pants, & pencil skirt) due to the color’s versatility. Lashon liked the suit so much that she purchased another 3-piece in black along with blouses in purple & turquoise.

Next, we bought a classic pair of black pumps by Nine West to accompany her new suit as well as an Anne Klein watch that Lashon saw in a mailed ad.

Always on the quest for the perfect purse in Lashon’s favorite color (purple), we finally found her Holy Grail in the Coach department. If only it were on sale…

Until next time…Class dismissed!!


Say Goodbye to Summer Polishes

With Labor Day in the rear view mirror, it’s time to get ready for fall. Before I pack them away, here are the nail polishes that I’ve loved this summer. The two on the left were new additions to the collection. What were some of your summer favorites?
