Hello Glam & Sassy loves! I just wrapped up showing the W by Worth Spring 2017 collection. I had so much fun styling my amazing clients in the hottest trends for the season. We were all ready, myself included, for a fresh start and new adventures. Changing of the seasons will do that to us Glam & Sassy girls and I absolutely embrace it! Once you get stuck in a rut, fashion or otherwise, the bravest thing you can do is decide to break away from it and take a chance on something new. Here are a few ways I suggest to make that happen.
Make a Clean Break:
Routines are nice and even necessary in some instances. However, fashion should never be mundane. You should change things up a bit from time to time. Don’t keep going back to an old standby just because it is what you are comfortable with. Have fun putting together outfits and add a few elements of surprise . A great way to do this is to mix textures and patterns. If you look at your clothes, and all you see are a bunch of solid colors (and I am going to guess mostly black) then there is no better time to add stripes and prints! Both are very on trend and very Glam & Sassy.
The Grass is Absolutely Greener:
Another way to reawaken your wardrobe is to add color to your closet. The palettes right now are as vibrant as the season itself… Heat Red, Malibu Blue and Grass Green. The amazing thing is everyone I styled in these shades could wear them no matter what hair color or skin tone. Not only does that make my job easier, it makes getting dressed so enticing. Discovering you can have something you didn’t think you could is a great euphoria. Go after it and enjoy it.
Everything is Replaceable:
Every well planned wardrobe consists of basics. Basic tees, denim and blouses. Take a look at your essentials every spring and decide what needs updating. A tell tale sign something no longer needs to be in your life is if it no longer excites you. I was thrilled to find the perfect button down that was an improved version of what I already had. Making the switch was a no brainer because I was definitely trading up! If you worry that you might regret letting something go, I can assure you, you won’t. In fact, you will love your new additions so much, there will be virtually zero memory of what once was. Now go out and flaunt your new looks and make everyone wish they were as Glam & Sassy as you!
Hello Glam & Sassy loves! Anyone who has been to New York knows the endless amount of fun and excitement that it offers. It is also the fashion capital of the world so that alone makes it one of my favorite cities. I worked many years in fashion in the Big Apple so I look forward to getting back as much as possible now that I live on the opposite coast. I actually just returned from a fabulous trip there to preview the W by Worth fall collection and I had no idea I could get so excited over a cool weather season in the middle of summer! As soon as I saw the versatile styles and felt the luxe fabrics, I was ready to come back to the 80 degree heat and start styling my clients for the months ahead. Since I am all about instant glamification, I thought it best to start with the buy-now-wear-now styles we can rock in July and straight into fall. Here are the styles you need not wait until September to enjoy.
During this sizzling season, we want to wear the least amount of clothing as possible…at least in public:) I found some sexy sleeveless tops that I am having fun with now and also later in the year as layering pieces. I am all about showing some skin but doing it with class. A cute little cami or a beautiful drapey cowl neck tank are both perfect picks. The fabrics are as soft as our summer skin and the styles are year round appropriate. I am putting my clients, and myself, in these right away to ensure maximum enjoyment and plenty of room to go back for seconds and thirds!
Summer is the season of color. The palettes may change every year, but it is always lip smacking and refreshing after a long winter. If you choose your colors right, you won’t be limited to wearing them just when the sun is out and the temps are high. Looking ahead to fall, we are seeing splashes of bold colors such as Chili and Royal Blue. I am loving dresses in these color pops because they are easy to style now with a beige heel and later with a black boot. Which one do you crave?
Unwrap and Enjoy:
For all the ladies who hustle in their careers and social lives like me, I found something I have been looking for for a long time. Check out this blouse that is professional for work, yet flirty enough for date night. It is a faux wrap so it stays perfectly in place with just the slightest hint of a peek. This unique combination of sophistication and sexiness is what makes this top, and all of us ladies, Glam & Sassy !
Hello Glam & Sassy loves! Are you counting down the days till spring like I am? Soon we will be able to start shedding heavy layers of clothing and wear shoes that don’t require socks! Whoo hoo! While seeking clothing lines to style my clients (and myself) this year, I was very excited to find W by Worth. W is a luxury, on-trend fashion brand with a design philosophy to empower women through style. Amazing and I instantly fell crazy in love! That doesn’t happen often in life so when it does, you’ve got to jump all in. So I did by playing dress up in all of the cute dresses and flirty tops. Check out these city chic looks from W by Worth that I had so much fun putting together for spring.
You want to look hot even in the cold. I love this cozy 3/4 sleeve sweater to layer over a tank top styled with dark denim jeans and accessorized with a printed scarf. You can swap the open toe heels for wedge booties if you still have snow on the ground where you are, and if you do, I am so sorry to hear that. No snow here in San Diego!
Who’s ready for color? That is a rhetorical question because by mid February, I am pretty sure we all are! This China Blue looks so good on everyone! It is my favorite go-to when a client needs to incorporate a pop of color to an almost all black wardrobe. I am craving this faux wrap top right now to dress up or down. Shine is on trend this season so wear it and dazzle day and night!
Nothing says I am fun and fabulous like a drawstring bubble dress with pockets so you can be as sassy as you wanna be! To avoid looking like an actual bubble, add a wide belt to show off your waistline. This piece is also cute worn open and styled like a jacket with jeans.
Are you already getting Save The Dates to spring wedding and events? Me too. Don’t people know that I want to spend my Memorial Day weekend at the beach and not with 250 of their friends, family, and co-workers doing the Cupid Shuffle??? Don’t let the panic of what to wear as you RSVP take up any of your mind space. You’ll need that focus when you are checking all of the gift registries. For occasions that require a dress that are not of the dancing- all- night- and -bottles- of- Grey -Goose- with- sparklers variety, I am a fan of this elegant style with a beautiful scallop neckline. I feel very sophisticated in this dress, but you will still find me line dancing with the rest of the party goers.

It is officially Spring! Time to shed heavy layers, open your windows, and be on the lookout for trees and flowers in bloom! Not quite there yet, east coast? Well, I am great at faking it and so can you! Lighten up your wardrobe…both fabrics and colors… and before you know it, you’ll have yourself believing spring has really come.
I LOVE buying for my Glam & Sassy collection and clients for this season. There is a plethora of pretty prints and flowy fabrics. Don’t be afraid to experiment with color! This is the perfect time to do it. Mix and match them too! You will look very trendy in sterling blue skinny jeans paired with a coral top so be bold and try something new! Find two colors that look great on you and then pull the look together with accessories in both colors. Now don’t you feel warmer already??? I’ll drink to that!
Have fun with fashion and always show your best sparkle!
