Style Dish Fashion Makeover - 1 Item, 3 Looks with Christa

Style Makeover and Wardrobe "Stretch"
If your clothes could talk they'd probably complain of boredom and fatigue. The skinny jeans would say, "Please girl, not again, I just want to rest in the drawer awhile. Choose a dress for a change."  Time to reinvent your wardrobe, experiment with what you own and find multiple ways to wear one piece. I help women "shop" the rack in their own closet to cook up some new looks with just one new addition in the "Style Dish" fashion makeover series.
 
And Now In:
Style Dish - Episode 4 - Alison & Christa:

Meet Christa, a pretty girl who is also super sweet-a great combination! Christa has a job at a PR firm and since she's fairly new in the biz she neeed help building a wardrobe that didn't cost her whole paycheck.  She admitted she didn't know how to "stretch" her wardrobe and mix up what she already owned. As her Style Chef, check out how I took one key "ingredient"- a black lace mini skirt available at Macy's and styled it three ways in Christa's wardrobe for episode four of Style Dish.

 

MADE Fashion Week black lace mini-skirt for Impulse, $25 Macy's

Super simple way to style this skirt. I paired the large lace design mini skirt with a small lace design top and black blazer. Load up on some accessories and break up the black with red suede heels.

Christa challenged me to create a casual weekend look with this pretty mini. A plaid cotton shirt and fringed printed open cardigan does the trick. Now, the lace mini won't seem frou-frou when she heads to brunch with friends.

Ok, so the skirt is too short for a conservative office, but in a creative workplace environment this should be approved. Just be sure to keep the rest of yourself covered or wear tights.

 

My fashion philosophy is that every item you own should be working triple-duty in your wardrobe. Every piece has a purpose and at least three ways to wear it.  In each episode, I visit a new woman struggling with her style. I'll walk through her wardrobe, find out what she's got going on and what simply has to GO, and then bring her guest back to the Style Studio.  With just one new ingredient -- a dress, a top or the perfect skirt -- I "cook" up three different outfits, mixing the new item with pieces pulled from our guest's very own closet!

I show how to inventively mix-and-match pieces, how to wear it for work AND the weekend, and how to mix up black-tie or first date, cocktail party or concert. I'm serving up style here, boosting women's confidence and teaching them to be more inventive, creative and experimental with their wardrobe.

Your Go-To Black Heels

Black heels are the must-have classic staple in a gal's wardrobe. That's probably not news to you. You probably own a few pairs already, just like so many of us own several pairs of black pants. And while I always tell the clients I style that you need to mix in a neutral color heel, a metallic and a bright pop of color in your shoe wardrobe, the classic black heel lifts you up and always succeeds in looking chic, powerful and a little sexy. Here are my Friday Favorites for the must-have black heel so get yourself a new pair to strut your stuff.

Style Dish Fashion Makeover - 1 Item, 3 Looks

 
Fun Fashion Makeover and Reinvention
Your closet's calling me and it has A LOT to say. Those black pants and skinny jeans are crying for a much needed break and that dress you bought on sale says it's lonely and unworn. Time to reinvent your wardrobe, experiment with what you own and find multiple ways to wear one piece. I help women "shop" the rack in their own closet to cook up some new looks with just one new addition in the "Style Dish" fashion makeover series.
 
And Now In:
Style Dish - Episode 3 - Alison & Kimberly:
Meet Kimberly, simply said she's beautiful inside and out. She was in the Peace Corps and now works for Step Up Women's Network where I'm a Luminary Circle member. Kimberly needed my help mixing conservative pieces with her trendy purchases. She admitted she was choosing the same items over and over again in her closet. Since I am your Style Chef, check out how I took one key "ingredient"- a sleeveless printed a-line dress by Bar III available at Macy's and styled it three ways in Kimberly's wardrobe.

Style Dish Makeover - Alissa - One Item, Three Looks in Your Wardrobe

Fashion is Fun!
 
Time to reinvent your wardrobe, experiment with what you own and find multiple ways to wear one piece. You try on clothes in a department store, so think of your closet like one. Start "shopping" the rack, shelves and drawers in your own closet to cook up some new looks.
 
And Now In:
Style Dish - Episode 2 - Alison & Alissa:
Meet Alissa, she's a cool girl who works for Step Up Women's Network where I'm a Luminary Circle member. At SUWN, we help and mentor teenage girls to become confident, college-bound and career-ready. Alissa was already quite stylish, but she wanted some help with being more experimental with her fashion picks rather than make "safe" choices. Since I am your Style Chef, check out how I take one key "ingredient"- a chartreuse zipper moto jacket from RACHEL Rachel Roy available at Macy's and style it three ways in Alissa's wardrobe. (And we love to encourage other cool women to join us, so please take a moment and click on SUWN.org to learn how to help teen girls and network with genuinely lovely professional women in LA, NYC and Chicago.)

Lace shorts give a break between stripes on top and bottom.

I added an animal print skinny belt for a subtle edge to the look. White jeans are the perfect neutral to help other colors pop!

Style Dish Makeover - One Item, Three Looks in Your Wardrobe

Style Dish - Episode 1 - Alison & Val

Admit it, you stand in front of the clothes in your closet and claim you have nothing to wear; but in reality your wardrobe is packed full of impulsive choices, frustrating outfits and dresses that still have the tags on them.  What's that? You try to branch out? But then you gravitate back to the same items and styles you've been wearing day in and day out, and the rest of your wardrobe hangs unworn and unwanted. Check out how I style a fringe cardigan for Val's wardrobe in three different ways... from chic to a little more edgy!

Just like the Top Chefs that can make something delicious with a few items you have in the pantry, I am your Style Chef Du Jour. With Val, an amazing makeup artist in our first episode, I dish up the fashion, cook up some great new looks with what she's got in her closet and add that one key ingredient that will make her wardrobe sizzle!!

If the sparkle doesn't make you pop at your holiday party, the colors certainly will!

Drinks, anyone? My guests will be vying for a seat at the bar on one of these stylish stools.

My bar needed an update so I shopped for new bar stools. I was surprised to find the perfect mid-century style bar stools on LampsPlus.com. Sure they're known for lamps, shades and accessories, but you'll be pleased like me to find home decor like pillows, throws and just right for my bar makeover--barware.

Pandora ESSENCE COLLECTION

Check out Pandora's new ESSENCE COLLECTION. More reasons than ever to wear your dreams and inspiration on your wrist. I chose Joy.

Which charm best defines you?

    

Pandora launched their new ESSENCE COLLECTION with a party and fashion show in Hollywood recently.  Among the many attendees getting a sneak peek at the stylish charms were Mad Men actress Jessica Pare and stylist Christina Erlich.

While sipping signature drinks and dancing to the DJ's mix we watched a fashion show featuring the jewelry on each of the models wrists.

The ESSENCE COLLECTION's direction is defined by women to inspire women and for that they chose eight brand ambassadors to be the face of the collection. I met three of the brand ambassadors at the party. Each is far different from the other from a research scientist to a documentary film maker to a makeup artist who founded a pro-age cosmetics company and started modeling at 49.

The collection features 24 sterling silver charms featuring symbolic materials, colors and patterns and represents key values such as joy, trust, passion, confidence, courage, love, strength and wisdom.

The ESSENCE COLLECTION inspires women to express themselves through symbolic charms that emphasize inner values, hopes and desires in life.

 I think of the charms as storytellers or conversation starters on your wrist. Which charm best defines you? And which would you give as a gift? I chose Joy.
