Nashville Premier Shopping Destination
clear

Green Hills is really a grand destination for the fashion savvy.   There is a mix of every kind of clothing and style available.  I was excited when Nordstrom told me they were coming to Nashville, and their plans for having a larger store here versus the smaller b or c size stores that exist in other markets.  I actually grew up shopping at a Nordy's' in California it was less than a mile from my high school - seriously.  Needless to say, I have grown up with the store and am very familiar with the brands they carry, the service they provide and most associates in numerous markets.  I have shopped in Nordstrom for my clients from San Francisco, San Diego, Atlanta, North Carolina and Virginia to name a few.   We are lucky to have them add to our already amazing department stores!

Ladies, there is more to Nordstrom than just women's fashions and the ambiance. The company has a great men's department as well!  Every retailer has a particular niche and there really is no reason in the world to travel all over the world to find great fashion at a great value for everyone in your life.  We have incredible jewels, amazing cosmetic counters, and fabulous racks of high end designers, superior private label brands and enough shoes to make the largest closet full from floor to ceiling.  

The key to building an amazing wardrobe is to shop intelligently, build a wardrobe, and understand what the clothing you are buying really says about your body and your image. 

Right now we all can bask in the new openings and exclusive brands in the Nashville market and no one needs to say "Let's go globetrotting to find what I can wear since Nashville just doesn't have what I need."  I have shopped for fashion and style for my clients all over America; and Nashville is right beside all the other major markets in fashion and style.  San Francisco, New York, Atlanta and Dallas all have the great points, but we have a great selection in fashion and styling right here at home.  The best part for us is that those great cities are missing something; they don't get to call Tennessee home.  

We can all get dressed up and look great, but nothing beats great Southern Hospitality.  Trust me, I should know, I have purchased tens of thousands of dollars of clothing over the last 10 years and I still miss home when I leave - along with the friendly smiles of the incredible people RIGHT HERE in Tennessee.

Fashion is about more than just your clothes.  Fashion encompasses all of your look, language and living. Fashion starts at your head and ends at your toes.  Fashion is just one mode for your personal expression, it is a way of acting and it is a way of communicating.  Fashion is your advertisement about who you are, what you believe and what you want to share with the world. Fashion is not based on income, but it does reflect your character.  Fashion is all about style, dress, conduct and your verbal and non-verbal expressions.  

Does your fashion help you to stand out in a crowd - is your personal image/brand easily recognizable and distinguishable? Fashion is your mirror to the world.  When the world looks at you, what do you reflect to them?  Fashion is not sexist at all; fashion is for men and women, young and old and exists all over the world.  Fashion crosses all racial and national barriers while allowing for the expression of cultural pride and history.  Fashion is about the clothes you wear, the jewelry and accessories that bring purpose and flavor to your visual recipe and the cologne or perfumes you use to create an aroma of attraction or fragrance of excitement.  Your skin, your eyes, your clothing, your language, your manners, your jewels, your hair and your smile are all a part of your fashion.  

MODA Image Consulting is all about giving your fashion a boost - or for some, a start.  We can help your fashion grow, change, better reflect who you are and who you want to be.  We can bring pizzazz to a romance, a raise at the office, and a WOW at the home.  Fashion is always making a statement. 
 

  • Is your statement improving every year or are you just keeping the status quo? 
  • Are you blending in with everything else like a black and white picture?
  • Is your fashion improving or disintegrating?  
  • Do you have an energy that makes you pleasant to be around, or has fear of fashion led you down the road of dull and stale?

There is no time than better than the present to define your fashion, reignite your closet, open up your wardrobe and create new looks, invest in a new statement, improve how you see yourself and influence how others see you.  MODA is here from head to toe...from comb to shoes...from inner conflict to outer reflection.   Make fashion work for you.  People will say it's just clothing, it's not important or it's shallow.  For me, fashion is an expression of who you are, what you believe and what you want your legacy to be.  Fashion is a tool of expression and a means for communicating with everyone that sees you, even when you do not see them.  

So here are a few great ideas for late summer and early fall.  Men, you can express who you are and add some freshness to your fashion' and image with a new cologne, watch or casual clothing.   We tend to get confused with casual you can still be comfortable, fashionable AND casual.  There is more to casual than jeans and tennis shoes.  Here are a few ideas for late summer looks that are great.  (All looks below available at Nordstrom.com).


Women, let's not get stuck in the heat and Indian summers without some color and changes.  Accessories and easy versatile pieces are the keys to a unique wardrobe! (All items below available at Nordstrom.com).


 




Here is a sneak peak of fall colors - and a few examples of these vibrant shades from Oscar's fall line...Enjoy!

Bamboo, a surprising fall hue, brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season.

Radiant Emberglow, a traditional autumnal tone, emanates the warmth of a glowing fire - the perfect panacea to the crisp air of fall.

Offering a sense of continuity from spring, dynamic Honeysuckle adds a bold punctuation point.

Phlox, a magical, deep purple with a hint of mystery, is an outstanding statement when worn on its own.

Cedar is a versatile, mid-tone neutral green. It is a natural with Deep Teal, and  sophisticated and timeless with Phlox or Orchid Hush.

Deep Teal, a strong, blue-toned green, suggests ocean depths and the color of the sky as daylight descends into darkness.

Rich, decadent Coffee Liqueúr brings a sense of elegance to fall, and is a savory alternative to basic black.

Nougat is tastefully embellished by Phlox, Emberglow or Honeysuckle.

Orchid Hush, a unique tone of gray with complex orchid undertones, blends well with any other color in the palette.

Quarry, a reliable medium gray, remains, as always, a practical, dependable staple.

(All looks from the fall 2011 Oscar de la Renta runway show!)

 
 
TIPS TO REMEMBER:

  • You don't have to look like big bird to enjoy the lemon or bamboo color - mix only small accents of it with your neutrals like grey, black and white by using belts, shirts, pins, shoes or only one simple piece like a shirt.
  • Everyone can wear a shade of red - YES YOU CAN!  There is a tone out there that will work for your skin coloring, I promise.  Don't miss out on this exquisite color.
  • Burgundy is the epitomy of class and elegance.
  • Your neutral shoes that you bought this spring - THEY ARE STILL IN.
  • Black opaque panty hose are IN.  YES I SAID IN.  (The trick with hose is to make sure you aren't wearing 'suntan' if your face is white).  Accent yourself in basic NUDES and shades of grey and black.  For those women who aren't keen on showing your knees or legs for some reason - you are allowed to wear hose but be careful.  You can immediately look OUT OF DATE if done incorrectly.


Don't miss the latest blogs - they are full of great information, sometimes controversial and always a good read!

Oscar de la Renta...and me! As you can imagine, meeting one of my fashion icons would be an amazing event even if I only had the opportunity to shake his hand so you can understand my excitement as I found myself alone with him, his beautiful step daughter, Eliza,who is the vice-president of the $250 million licensing department, and her husband, Alex Bolen, who is the company's CEO.

Generations of Fashion and MALE LEADERSHIP
You are the role model for the people you love and even people who you rarely see or know.  When you take the time to make certain that your appearance is clean, strong, matching and pressed, you are sending out a message that says "I care about how I look and I want to be the best I can be."  It doesn't matter if your uniform is a pair of casual pants and a t-shirt, a suit with ties and dress shoes, a baker's uniform or matching pants and shirts that designate you to a particular task or company.  You can always look great.  Click here to read the entire story and be inspired!
