Do you ever just stop and think, “Hey – everything is pretty good right now!” I’ve kind of been feeling that way lately but am almost a little scared to actually say it out loud. Some how saying it out loud makes me look over my shoulder for something bad to happen. That’s kind of sad actually! But things have been good lately. Work is good and I really love my clients. Fashion Week SA is really flourishing and it has been such a joy to be on the team. Luke and Daddy Russ are my besties and we are such an awesome trio. Just good. And I like good! Here’s a look at my Instagram lately so you can see all this goodness!

Little Black Dress

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

The LBD isn’t revolutionary but it is a must in every women’s closet. I like to think that a little black dress is the canvas to accessorize! Throw on a hot shoe and statement necklace and you’re good to go! Here are a few looks from fabulous¬† bloggers showing you that a LBD can be worn on every occasion!

By now you know about my girl crush on Blair from Atlantic-Pacific. She outdoes herself with this look. For me… it’s all about these Pierre Hardy shoes! To die for! They are a pretty penny though.

The famous Courtney Kerr in Dallas takes a simple black dress, adds some killer heels and a bright bag!

Now this is a WOWZER inducing look on Amber Venz! And that necklace exemplifies making a statement!


I showed you this little black dress from Project Gravitas earlier in the summer. I wear it all the time!

Black + White

Monday, September 8, 2014

The classic color combination of black and white keeps coming back for more! It really is THE unbreakable combo and you can trust that you are always doing right by it. Brands like Christian Dior, Celine and Lanvin all favored the duo in their Fall 2014 runway shows.

I paired some rocker faux leather pants and a graphic tee (both from Topshop at Nordstrom) and added a bright red bag for a color pop. And don’t forget about these shoes!! Seriously…stunners! Every time I wear these I get tons of compliments. Scroll to the bottom of the post to purchase any of these pieces for yourself!

Dark Lips.

Friday, September 5, 2014

No more mundane makeup this fall! Women are going to be embracing strong beauty with dark lips in deep plums, reds and mauves. I’ve included some of my faves below in case you’d like to join in on the fun. If you’ve never tried a Tom Ford lipstick I HIGHLY recommend trying it. It’s currently my favorite brand for lips and it’s amazing! A couple tips for wearing dark lipstick:

1: Always use a lip pencil to keep the color from bleeding.

2: Exfoliate and moisturize your lips before application. If you have chapped lips the color will crack and flake off.

3: Don’t forget to check your teeth!
