Summer Fashion Essentials...

I am often asked what some of my favorites' are for every season and I am careful to respond as they might not work for everyone…but this season, I am loving the fashions and I wanted to share a few of my personal summer essentials.  I would love to help you with all of your image and fashion needs…From fashion to make-up and hair help, I can point you in the right direction according to your personal and professional goals as well as needs.  You will save oodles of money and precious time when you know what your brand is, what lines work best for your body and how to shop your closet.  Please call or email today to set up a complimentary consultation!

Let's start with shoes!  Regardless of what I am wearing or what event I am attending, I choose a pair of shoes that have something special...this season, the choices are endless.  As many of you already know I have a 16 month old little girl - this means, days at the park chasing her around in the sandbox, pushing her in her pink princess cozy coupe, days at the zoo and playdates galore - as a mom I want to look chic, but comfort is my first goal...Here are a few of my choices for my 'mom' days...or grocery store shopping trips, errand running etc - you get the picture!  Embellished sandals are all the rage this season and I love them - stones, braids, bright colors and metallics; you can't go wrong.  Even if you are simply wearing a white (hopefully fitted) t-shirt and a pair of shorts, a beautiful embellished sandal will make you look and feel like a fashionista!

One of my new favorite brands is Isola seen below.  (Found exclusively at the Cool Springs Dillard's.  They are made by Sofft - these amazingly comfortable shoes are as fashion forward as it gets...from flats to heels, they are worth a try!)


Sunglasses are my next essential - find a pair that fits your face.  A great pair of glasses is a worthy investment - they are something you wear every single day and you will get your money's worth out of them!  I personally love the always in style aviator for my face shape...Take some time to play around with different shapes - invest in a neutral that will take you from casual to sophisticated.  (Chanel glasses on the left are available at Nordstrom.com)













My next staple is a fabulous summer tote...Mine is big enough to make even Mary Poppins proud, but a mid-size tote is a great investment...I always invest in neutrals as they will last from season to season and go with absolutely anything.  All of the beautiful bags below are available at Nordstrom.com!               

 

 

MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Julian - Large' Python Embossed Shoulder Tote MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Lilly - Medium' Straw ToteMICHAEL Michael Kors 'Knox - Large' Croc Embossed Satchel COACH MADISON PYTHON EMBOSSED LARGE MARIELLE DRAWSTRING 

OK, back to shoes...Wedges are definitely in and are more comfortable than you may think!  The platform underneath the ball of your foot gives you a bit of a lift and makes the heel not so tall.  One of the best advantages of a wedge, they give a bit of boost (You know what I mean ladies) and they look great with capris, shorts, dresses and skirts! (All option below are available at Dillards.com).
 

One of the most daunting aspects of summer is the bathing suit...can I get an AMEN?!  So, I will forgo the bathing suit advice for today and go with something we all need...the coverup!  Whether I am hanging with my teenage girls or chasing Sophia around in her Huggies swimmers...I am wearing a coverup...I LOVE the one below by Trina Turk, and if you live in my neighborhood - you will see it quite a bit this summer...Go with fun, bright colors!  If you feel more comfortable wearing a more demure pattern for the actual bathing suit, pick a cover up that says fun, sexy and comfortable - yes, it is possible to get all three! Here are a few of my choices available at Nordstrom.com.

Trina Turk 'French Riviera' Tunic Cover-Up  Robin Piccone Tie Dye Cover-Up Dress  Ella Moss 'Electra' Paillette Dress

If you would like to spice up your summer wardrobe whether for work and/or personal needs, I would absolutely LOVE to help you!  Call or e-mail today to set up a complimentary consultation to see what we might be able to do together!  I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Happy Shopping!

April 2011 Newsletter - Your Temple, Your Image and Fashion...
clear


Your Temple, Your Image and Fashion...

I think every client I have -male or female, starts off with one question…What can you do for me?  The most interesting part of my work is helping clients define WHO they are and what they want to say about themselves.  The real TRUTH in life is about knowing why you were created and from who do we get our desire to live.  Fashion and looking great are all extensions from those two points. Those truths determine the direction for your life and your look.  I believe fashion and defining your "Personal Brand" are more than an expression of yourself…I have seen time and time again the changes that fashion can create in a person as a resurrection, not an evolution.
We are bringing the real you back to life and getting rid of the old you that got lost in a busy schedule, work and years of neglect.  Our body is a temple and we have the free will to decide who resides in our temple and how we will treat our temple.  Clothing and fashion is the adornment of your temple and fashion really defines and tells the world how you feel about yourself.  

Professionally, I think your temple, your body and your fashion, should provide an expression that is exciting, inviting, intelligent and says you care about yourself.  Clothing alone cannot turn your fashion into a positive statement about you without first making certain your temple, the body, is feeling wonderful.

Every now and then we need to purge this temple of ours; we need to exercise and diet, to drink juices and water, to cleanse the inside before we start to decorate the outside.  When it comes to fashion, your look is determined by ALL OF YOU, not just the clothes you wear.  Your social and emotional well being is a part of fashion, your mental attitude and aptitude is part of fashion and your physical health is a part of your fashion.  All of these areas are a part of the temple and deal with the inside as much as the outside.  Fashion and image can boost the feelings you have on the inside…so when we get the right look, the right fit and the right fashion we are half way there to resurrecting the YOU that you have always been.  Blessed and created for a purpose!  

Start with a smile, start with plenty of rest, start with a positive outlook and start with a goal that will improve your complete life - not just how you look.  Once we have helped establish all of these points, then we are ready to take your temple and dress it up.

So this spring, think about some personal spring cleaning.  Let's start on the inside and work towards the outside…then we can finish up our time redoing your closets and refocusing you on your personal and professional goals.  Then we can celebrate a new you that shines from the inside out.  We can bring color, joy, excitement and a new energy to your life!!!

So allow me to leave you with this question…who resides in your temple?  What do you want to say about YOU and what is important in your life?  Fashion is an expression of one's thoughts, values and goals, and I hope I can help you turn your closet and your image into your personal work of art that says, "Here I am, I believe in myself, I value my temple and I am ready to make a difference in this world!"

May God bless you this spring and I look forward to hearing from you!

The perfect gift for any occasion...
clear

Moms are the ultimate fashion queens.  They start putting us together as soon as we take our first breath and they keep offering advice until they take their last breath.  Thank God for the mothers who patiently got us dressed and got us out the door for school.  Thank God for the mothers who dressed us in our special dress and turned our first school dance into a fashion statement that we still laugh about when we see the pictures.  Thank God for the mothers who bandaged our knees, and told us no when we wanted that most amazing outfit that everyone was wearing at school and she was to nice to say IT JUST DOES NOT LOOK GOOD ON YOU.  Thank God for the mothers who helped us find the right dress for our weddings.  Thank God for the mothers who now offers us insight into our own little girls.  

Give your Mother a gift that lasts a lifetime - some time with MODA Image Consulting.  Let us be the one that helps mom look her best and feel LIKE THE SPECIAL WOMAN THAT SHE IS.  To the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day and may God Bless you!  

Whether it is Mother's Day, a birthday or anniversary, the gift of MODA is perfect for any occasion.
