Take a Bite

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.

Tastefully Bare:

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!



Yummy Colors:

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?FullSizeRender(9)

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 !

Summer Love

Hello Glam & Sassy loves! Summer is, without a doubt, my favorite season.  I live in southern California where we enjoy summer almost year round and I purposely landed on the coast when I moved here. Give me sun, give me water, give me seventy degrees every day and I am one happy camper…or “glamper” since these well manicured hands have never pitched a tent. The best thing about summer fashion is one piece dressing. It is easy and effortless the way it should be when something is right.  Here are three of my must have outfits for this season that I love.

A Quick Romp:

The romper is the rebel sister of the sundress. It is bold, fun, flirty and sexy…sounds like the perfect catch to me. And let’s talk summer color, shall we?  Nothing is better than a bright burst of hot pink!  It just seems to scream “let’s party!”As I am writing this, I realized I just described myself, so I think I better buy this one from Adelyn Rae at my happy place, Nordstrom! It is so me and it is so perfect for an afternoon summer soirée !

Hands on Skin:

This wouldn’t be the sexiest season of the year if we didn’t bare our bodies. That’s the reason for hitting the gym on the reg so slip into a sundress that shows off those shoulders, girl.  Lucky for us, Off the Shoulder is trending now and it is trending hard.  I love this dee elle dress and would style it for both day and evening  by changing up the heel and adding some sparkle.  You will stay cool and look chic at the same time. This flowy fabric begs to be touched.  The only thing softer than the material is your skin so expect to be caressed in this dress.

Dress a Mesh on the Floor:

What other time of year can you wear mesh as a dress besides summer? This style from W by Worth is actually two dresses in one.  Here is your Glam & Sassy clothing budget lesson for the day…take the price and divide it by two and you’ll realize that you can’t afford NOT to get it! This shift dress can be worn alone or with the mesh overlay. The mesh dress can also be worn separately as a bathing suit cover up.  I can picture it now and I hope you can too. It is as hot as summer itself…and very Glam & Sassy!

Worth It

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.


So what do you think? Which outfits are your fave?  Feel free to leave it in the comments. Click here for information on where to shop these looks. Please check out my Instagram @glamandsassy for more pics and outfit inspirations! W by Worth has everything I am looking for this spring. Fabulous fabrics,  beautiful color palettes and  body skimming silhouettes that make any woman feel Glam & Sassy, of course!

Make a Move

With my vast years of life experience, let’s just say 32 and be done with it haha, I have found that if I want something bad enough, I have to go after it. Life is not about sitting around and waiting for things you hope will happen to happen. Recently, I have been in the process of changing the direction of my business and focusing on blogging about all that is Glam & Sassy. Thank you for reading and engaging BTW! That said, my current town of La Jolla, as beautiful as it is, may no longer be the right place for me.  I am spending more time in LA and enjoying all of the fabulous energy and fashion in the City of Angels. Here are some of the places I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying and some great pieces we should all have in our closets no matter where we live and love.

History Repeating:

One of the most iconic hotels for old and new Hollywood glam is the Beverly Hills Hotel. It is known as the “Pink Palace”. I can’t think of anything more Glam & Sassy than that!  I chose a casual but stylish outfit to wear while strolling around the grounds and you know I had to stop and enjoy a glass of champs at the Cabana Café. I love this super cute Vince dress that you can get on sale at Nordstrom.com. This relaxed shirtdress style is perfect for dining al fresco, yet chic enough to be seen inside the resort browsing and making new friends which is a trait we Glam & Sassy girls all share 🙂

 Reoccurring Feelings:

Some things in life can spark such a thrill! Remember the excitement of a first kiss, a new car, and, well, every time you go shopping ?!?  There are many great shopping venues but there is nothing like the feeling of strolling down Rodeo Drive.  For an afternoon of shopping till you drop, I prefer the very on trend flare jean paired with a striped tunic. Have you ever tried to try on tops when you are in a dress and realize you really need to have pants on to appreciate how it is going to look and make sure it doesn’t cover your best ASSet? No? Just me? Awkward….

Body and Soul Connection:

Working out is a must. And there is nothing better than new workout clothes to motivate you to move.  As a member of one of the hottest health clubs, Equinox, looking good is as important as feeling good. But no matter where you choose to burn off some calories, do so in something comfortable and functional. (I think functionable should be a word. You guys would know what I meant, right?) It is worth the splurge on athletic pants that accentuate and whisk away moisture aka sweat. Black is best because I can mix and match different colored tops. Besides, if I am spending this much on “yoga” pants. you can be sure I will also be wearing them running errands in my new town…and still look Glam & Sassy.

Stand Out

We can basically categorize people into two groups. Those that stand out and those that blend in. Since you are taking the time to read this ever so entertaining blog, I am going to assume you are the former and not the latter.  Perfect. So am I. That does not mean I have to be the center of attention EVERYWHERE I go (there is a time and a place and as long as I know I am the queen in all situations, then that is really all that matters). It does mean, however, that whether in a crowded club, a hot new restaurant, a sky full of stars, or just to my man when I walk in the room, I want to be noticed.  Shocked? Don’t be. There is nothing wrong with feeling this way or admitting it.  Don’t judge. Bottom line, if you put in any effort at all into getting ready, then you want to be noticed too.  Just be sure you are getting noticed for good reasons.  Here are a few style suggestions to get you the double take you deserve.

Half of It is I: Coupled up? Nothing is sexier than arriving with your guy and you are both looking stylish and put together.  Reference Kimye . I am sure a Glam & Sassy girl such as yourself landed a handsome and classy guy but it is ok to upstage him once in a while or, you know, all the time.  Make the effort to look like you did the first time you went out.  This includes, but is not limited to, a to die for dress that is revealing but not slutty (we are Glam & Sassy, not Glam & Trashy), bold accessories, sultry makeup and sexy heels. Having a hard time rallying after a long day at the office? Put on your fave music, turn it up loud, now louder, and get ready wearing only your lingerie while you prance around your apartment.  It will feel like playing dress up and you will be energized for an unforgettable night as the It Couple. Take lots of pics to relive how hot you are later.

Dancing Queens: Got a fun night planned with the girls? Awesome! Do not feel bad if you are the hottest of all of your hottie friends. They actually benefit from your level of gorgeous simply by association. You’re welcome. For a GNO, play up your best assets and experiment with bold colors and lots of bling. There is room for only one queen and that’s you.  Make sure your shoes are somewhat comfortable though. No dancing queen can be caught sitting down before 2am.

Table for One: No BF and your BFF has other plans? That is no reason to stay home in your Lulu’s and order take out and Netflix.  Get off your cute and well toned booty, slip on (or jump into) your fave jeans and fabulous top and take yourself out! If you look this good, you will not be alone for long.  Put your phone down and be approachable. You are only allowed to pick it up to check out his IG account when he goes to the restroom to make a quick assessment of his claim to be single. Then, relax, have fun, and know that it was worth putting the finishing touches on your perfection so that you could feel glam tonight, and of course, sassy.

Here we are three weeks into 2014.  The celebrations and resolutions are almost long forgotten, but every year at this time, I crave something new…whether that is a new accomplishment, relationship or experience,  just to make sure the current year far surpasses the previous one.  It’s a crazy cycle,  but one that keeps me moving forward and progressing, so it’s actually a good thing

The same goes for my wardrobe.  I have many pieces that I love to wear, cannot wait to wear, and feel oh-so-fabulous when I wear, but isn’t there always room for something to out do even those favorite looks?  As a stylist and owner of Glam & Sassy, I realize I have an unfair advantage as I get my retail therapy in the form of a legit business buying trip (aka SHOPPING), but the good news is, my clients also benefit from it too!    These are the newest items I added to my assortment of goodies in order to get my fix for something new this January.  A word of advice to my clients…hurry and get them now before they ALL end up in MY closet!
