When you experience a closet edit with me or even just shop with me, you will quickly learn that I am all about balanced style.
So what does “balanced style” mean you might ask?
Well, here is what I think it means (since I just decided to call it that). It’s when one wants to dress well, they don’t have to spend a fortune. Simple as that!
You just need to know what to splurge on and then what to not spend so much of your hard earned money on.
It’s kind of like, when you go to the grocery store, you may splurge on the top shelf brand of chocolate but then you buy the generic brand ice cream. Or perhaps, you purchase the name brand paper towels and then the no name brand Windex because you know that when you buy these brands, you know what you are getting, they don’t tear up easily and they will last you the time you plan to use them. Am I making sense?
So when I am putting together my own outfits or creating a new wardrobe for my clients, I first work with the existing wardrobe and then fill in the “gaps” so to speak, with clothes and accessories that best suit their lifestyle and budget.
When you hire me, you will not feel like you have to shop at majority high end stores to get your best look. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love me some Saks (that’s where I got my start actually), then Nordstrom, of course, who doesn’t love them! And then the amazing local boutiques here, in Nashville area. I will speak about my favs later.
So I appreciate good quality brands…
My point in this is helping you find a balance, and showing you how you can mix the best of both worlds.
As you see here, I have my BP and Target brand button down, Merona mules, styled with my favorite Nickel and Suede earrings, Korkease booties, Paige jeans and Old Navy clutch.Perfect example of balanced style without breaking the bank.
To add another layer, because it’s a tad chilly here in Nashville, and I just like layers, I added my new favorite sweater vest by A New Day. A new brand at Target.
Again, you don’ have to spend a fortune to look put together and most importantly feel great. You just have to know what to look for in the quality of fabric as well as the price.
Another fun Tuesday Target Fashion find was this white v neck. See all the different ways I have already styled it? Pretty simple, I know, but easy, fun and stylish. Again, I have a lot of high end things here and then less than high end.
For instance, I have my Stella and Dot jewelry (call my friend Angela), my Daniel Wellington watch, Madewell cuff bracelet (I love a good cuff bracelet) Gap jeans I have had forever, Fabrik classic black blazer (everyone needs one),
Old Navy pleather jacket, leopard print clutch and then there is my sweater vest from Target (or Tar-jey) I just purchased.
When I am shopping for myself, my goal is to invest in more classic style or things I use very often like shoes, accessories, and nice, good fitting pants or jeans.
For some people, it may be important for them to invest in a nice dress. Every one is different in shape and lifestyle so everyone may have a different priority list. This just happens to be mine right now!
When we work together, we can talk about what your goals are and what you want to learn to invest in and what you may or may not want to spend on right now.
So I hope you will check out my different styling packages here and really consider me helping you create a more balanced and refined style.
I promise we will have tons of fun and you will walk away feeling your best inside and out.
