Menswear for Women

I love getting to style my friends, and I especially love getting to style Promise Tangeman because the girl has a KILLER closet. Together, we came up with three outfits showing how to wear men's clothing as women's wear for the April issue of EMMA Magazine. Her hubby, Brian Wurzell, also has fabulous style. Are you surprised? NO! haha. So, with their closet powers combined, three looks came together showing how to wear a guy's t-shirt, boy friend jeans with suspenders and a button down chambray shirt. LOOK #1 Men's T

How to Wear Floral Pants

You may or may not be a fan of the floral pant trend. For some, it reminds them of the 80's and early 90's, and I guess that's a bad thing. For me, a lover of bright colored denim, I am ALL over this trend. In addition to buying these pretty pants from Target that are showcased in the February issue of EMMA Magazine, I just bought a pair of satin pants from Macy's for a grand total of $16.98. Let's hear it for this bargain hunter! WOOP WOOP! So, if you are not on board yet, check out the images below of the Target pants that I styled three ways. You can wear them causally with a tank, throw on some stripes, or dress them up with a peplum top. Have fun!

Being a Working Mom

Part of the reason why I started this blog was to share my journey in becoming a fashion stylist. And now that it has been three years since  my leap of faith into the fashion industry, this blog has served as a place for me to update you with career news in addition to fashion trends. Thus, I thought I would touch on what it has been like to be a working stylist and a mom at the same time. Screen Shot 2013-01-31 at 9.49.14 PM

Being an emotional person, it has shocked me that I haven't really cried very much throughout the journey of pregnancy and motherhood. I thought I would be a bit of a basket case, but instead, I've become incredibly calm and patient. I credit God for this new found sense of peace. However, this past December I think I spent a whole day teary-eyed and overwhelmed by the thought of possibly having to give up styling. Let's just say the cost of childcare pretty much negates what I earn through styling, and it's very hard to bring a baby with you and work.

Obviously, my family comes before work, but it's also important to spend time doing things that replenish your soul. For me, creating art is part of that process. So, I realized right now that just means doing less styling for a season, but it doesn't have to go completely away. I'll still be doing closet sessions, personal shopping and styling photo shoots, but I just wont be doing as many as I normally do.

You've heard me talk about EMMA Magazine a couple times before. This magazine was started by young moms like myself that completely understand the struggle of balancing motherhood, marriage and our art forms. Working for EMMA is definitely one place I can bring Elle and still do my craft. Here are some photos showing us with our babies on set.

If you're reading this and you are a mom or would love to one day be one, know that the transition in becoming a mom is hard and amazing at the same time. But it doesn't mean you need to completely say good-bye to your passion. It just will take a back seat to a new found joy - loving on a beautiful baby.

January Issue of EMMA Magazine

The first full issue of EMMA Magazine has been released. You may notice a familiar face and baby bump on the cover. =) Pregnancy definitely is a time of new beginnings, so inside the issue you'll find my top maternity style picks. You'll also see a beautiful photo shoot featuring fashions from a local boutique called Frances Vintage worn by popular style blogger, Chelsea Brown. Alejandra Vidal photographed the looks, Heather Wilson did the makeup and hair, and I styled Miss Chelsea. It was such a fun collaboration, and it made me want to own that Free People lace dress!

Check out the new issue, and definitely head on over to Frances if you're looking for unique jewelry and beautiful clothes.
