Get the right shades for your face shape!
- Long Face – Aviators will create the illusion of a wider face which will create balance.
- Square Face – Round frames will soften angles.
- Round Face – Square frames will balance roundness.
- Heart Shape – A butterfly styled frame will break up width of eyes by dipping down on top of the frames.

Shoes need to strike a balance between comfort and style. A good quality shoe that will not kill your feet and looks great can be hard to find and hurt the sometimes be an investment, so it is worthwhile to know how to fit your shoes when making that important purchase.
- Wiggle your toes – you need to have some room in the toe box. If it is too tight it may cause a bunion or ingrown toenail, both extremely painful and not fun to have corrected.
• Make sure your shoes do not slip when you walk.
• If you are buying a sandal or slingback, make sure your heel does not hang off the back.
• Check that your toes do not hang off the front of your sandals, you need enough space for your toes to push forward as you walk. But you do not want too much, that means your shoes are a size too big.
• Take your shoes home to test out inside for a few days to make sure they will be comfortable for an all day event. There are a couple great stores I know that allow you to even wear them outside and return if they do not work – Scheels and Kohls. Yay for them!
A perfect outfit combination for a stylish dinner out. Simply choose a feminine blouse and belt it with a thin leather belt. Straight leg jeans lend sophistication while glints of gold on your bracelet and clutch add sparkle. Finish the look with a pair of leopard print flats and you are ready for a night out.
Need a little boost for your hair? Maybe some piecey texture? Or how about making your hair last another day between washings? The product that can give you results in all three of these areas is a good dry shampoo. I love to suggest this product to my clients who have thin or fine hair because of the instant lift your roots receive when you spray it on. And it really works miracles for anyone who has oily hair and does not want to wash it every day. The best way to use dry shampoo for either of these two reasons, is to first to divide hair at the spot you want lift or want the oil masked and spray at the roots. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rub it in with your fingers. If you are just looking for some piecey texture, you can not only apply to your roots but spray a little all over and piece out your hair with your hands. A really good brand of dry shampoo is Klorane, my personal favorite. You can find out more about their products at kloraneusa.com.
Suiting doesn’t have to be an ultra-formal matching skirt and blazer set. Instead, try a chic cropped blazer with an untucked shirt to create length, paired with a pencil skirt. Or swap out your standard pearls and pendants for a daring colorful necklace to add just the right “pop” to your outfit. A mix of shades in one hue in your jacket, bottoms and shirt will create a modern flair. Tired of your basic jacket? Change it up with a soft knit cardigan instead of your matching blazer. Add appeal to your ensemble with flattering nude heels. The ideas are endless when it comes to creating streamlined coordinated outfits that will step up your predictable office suits.
