     Everyone has their own style. A way to express who they are through their clothes.  I call this "style self". Some play it up and enhance it, while others are afraid to step outside the box.  Having fabulous style doesn't mean you have to spend a fortune or need to be label driven to achieve the look you want.  If you know where to shop and make what you already have work for you, you can be on trend and not break the bank.  You also have to be willing to take fashion risks in order to find your style.  Remember, even the best dressed celebs end up on the worst dressed list from time to time.  No pain, no gain. 
     The first step to finding your style self is BEING YOU. Sing it LOUD and sing it PROUD.  Start by singing in the car like no one is watching (If you ever see me on the freeway you would think I was nuts). Don't worry about what others think of you because those who talk behind your back, are behind you for a reason!
     Dress for yourself. I love putting an outfit together, doing my hair and makeup, and heading out the door feeling put together.  I know we are all busy with work/children/families/other obligations but when you take the time (even an extra 5 minutes) to nurture your style self, people will stop to notice.  They will of course notice your fabulous duds but, your confidence and smile will be your greatest accessory! 
     Above I put together some of my favorite must have staples for this season: the faux leather legging, faux fur snood, blazer, black blouse, pumps, fabulous bag, and of course the jewels.  Because of the different textures (i.e., faux leatha and fur), I chose to take the pop of color right to my feet.  A pop of color adds visual interest to your outfit but doesn't seem like color overkill.  That little bit of fuschia adds a lot of pizzaz to the look.  
Now go out there and find your "style self"! 
Thanks for stopping by!
