Celebrities over forty and fabulous......
Recently I made a comment on women in their forties and how style is their own. A few celebrities come to mind to show how they lead in trend and attitude......

Jennifer Aniston-Simple, elegant never to flashy, her look fits her personality.
Courtney Cox-Once again, simple,elegant-never over done.
Nicole Kidman-From Tennesse to the red carpet, one word elegant.
Sarah Jessica Paker-Whimsical, very New York City fashion flair, you can tell she loves NYC!
Eva Longoria-Sassy, sometimes flashy, always has her groove on! Even in sweats, tank, and flip flops!!
Gwyneth Paltrow-I would say tastefully conservative, a natural beauty.
Julia Roberts-Another natural beauty. The one who took ME&RO to the top!
Halle Berry-Sexy! Only word to describe her!

These women take fashion and make it their own. I have watched them throughout the years, and they have never strayed to trend, always consistant with their individual look!

Sarah Jessica Parker
Gwyneth Paltrow
Julia Roberts

How To Transition Your Wardrobe Into Spring

Spring 2010 is right around the corner! Time to clean out those closets! So I have a few tips I give all my clients.

1)One rule I have is , if you have not worn an item in over a year....Pitch It! Unless it has sentimental is taking up space! 

2)Go through your basics,ex:tanks and tees....especially white, see what needs to be refreshed. 

3)Learn what consignment stores are around town. They are great for getting rid of items that are current but did not get much attention. This gives you cash flow for adding NEW to your wardrobe! 

4)Remember, transition means to start wearing brighter colors, lighter jackets, lighter weight leathers. If you are tired of boots and Uggs with your leggings and straight leg jeans....replace with flats and NO SOCKS! Suede ballerina flats or driving shoes still appropriate! 

5)Organize your closet by tops, bottoms,sweaters, coats,shoes, accessories...colorize light to dark. That way you can mix and match and maximize your wardrobe. 

6) Start changing your mani's and pedi's....use colors , still dark per trend, but hues of pinks,purples, blues , and greens. 

7)Update your accessories, add some color to your blacks and grays. 

8)Remember Spring/Summer fashion season goes by fast. If you have special occassions such as wedding, graduations, tropical March and April and get the best of what is NEW!

Happy Spring Everybody!

Flip Floppin Around

Today I spent some time shopping online to see what I could find in the world of flip flops! The one thing I love the most about spring/summer is the simplicity of throwing on my flops with whatever I have on....a dress, shorts, my jeans.....they go with everything! So here is what I got excited about......

I love love love Tori Burch's flip flops- Neiman Marcus has the logo rubber flip flops for $45.00, I also fell in love with the new Metallic Ornament Sandal ,$235, by Tori!

Saks Fifth Ave. has some great Gucci rubber flops for $195, I tend to love black, but the blue one's were super cute too!

Shop Bop also had some spectacular Tori's in Platinum., more of a flat flip......$195
I also found a oh so cute pair of sandals by Elizabeth & James....the Becky Toe Ring Cuff Sandal....sosososo cute!

My all time summer must haves are Havianna's, ultimate in comfort, flip flops! I am obsessed with them! Dini's Los Angeles adds flair with peace sign crystals which caters to my bohemian/hippie feel that I tend to trend towards.....personally. $48

Jcrew touches on the feminine side of summer , with their Blume flip flops, especially in neutrals.$24.50

So for today....this is my flip flop wisdom for an ol pro!!!
