Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all your amazing sweet emails and comments on Friday's post.
I loved reading each and everyone of them!
Did anyone watch the Academy Awards?
I was out until the very end, so I missed the red carpet but saw the last three awards.
I loved The Artist so I was happy they won Best Picture!
The Help was amazing too. Such an amazing book and movie!
What were your favorites?
I finished the Spring Look Book and sent it over to the Graphic Artist on Saturday.
I think you guys will really enjoy it, I am excited to share it with you all!
So on to the look of the day... Perfect for a casual play date, shopping, weekends, running errand.
I was inspired by this cheerful cardigan from everyone's favorite discount store...
Have some FUN with your wardrobe, add some color and playful touches!
Hey there everyone! It is Friday. I hope you have a fun weekend planned?
I am relieved this week is over it was a bit overwhelming for me I must admit.
I have really let the blog posts slide with all my other commitments both personal and business.
One of the areas I feel I severely lack in the whole blogging business is putting myself out there.
In "real life" I am a talker... people can't shut me up (seriously, ask anyone that knows me well).
But when I post on the blog I clam up, I don't know what to say or how to even start writing....
See...my degree is Fashion, not English, I am not a fabulous, funny or entertaining writer ;) .
I feel like I don't put myself out their in a way that you "know" the girl behind the blog.
So in a effort to improve this... I just updated my about me page and I thought I'd share it with you. Not that you even care to know the the girl behind the blog, just show me some cute outfits :), lady that is why I am here.
SO I have to ask you all a favor... Since I am going to try very hard to put myself out there more. Can you humor me and tell me something about you? I LOVE when you email me and tell me about yourself and that is the way I have gotten to "know" a few of you out there! Sometimes I forget people are even reading, so when I get one of your emails I am like oh wow! someone is reading :) . So just leave a little comment here or on Facebook, or email me , K?
I have two beautiful children and a very handsome, kind husband. I have lived in, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Colorado, Missouri, Kansas, Michigan, and California. I am a Kappa Kappa Gamma I get bored easily. I wish I liked to work-out but I don’t. I have met a lot of celebrities but my favorite people to meet are successful business owners. I have sewn since I was eight, when I got my first sewing machine. I am not a writer, I have a degree in fashion, sorry for all typos and grammatical errors. I am horrible at team sports. My office is a mess 99% of the time. I am the oldest in my family so I am really bossy (I am never wrong either). I have known I would be in fashion since 8th grade. I am turning 40 in October. I don’t like to cook. I am incredibly sarcastic. I don’t have a “favorite” store, I shop everywhere. I watch a lot of movies because I love the set and costume design.

This year I have added a new service called Virtual Wardrobes.
It includes wardrobe basics for YOU, your body type, your likes,your dislikes,your lifestyle and your budget.
I will select pieces from online stores, essential pieces, that I believe you should have in your wardrobe.
These pieces will be your foundation, your building blocks, so that you can add trends, or fun new pieces seasonally!
These are the pieces you will be able to wear for 10 years. They are classics and will be the go to piece you own.
A Virtual Wardrobe* includes:
YOUR personalized basic core wardrobe essentials, with links to all products.
These basic core items are clothing, shoes and accessories.
14 virtual outfits using these pieces. These outfits will get you through two typical weeks. Print these out and keep them in your closet for reference.
One hour phone call or Skype session with me.
Cost per virtual wardrobe is $250
(a small price to pay for the comfort to know you have all the right pieces, and look great everyday!!!)
Email me for waiting list firstname.lastname@example.org
*Virtual Wardrobes are good for ONE theme. For example, you cannot purchase a Virtual Wardrobe that works for corporate America AND a vacation to Brazil. That would be two separate wardrobes.
Here is an example of a Virtual Wardrobe.
1. Pencil Skirt
2. CZ/Diamon Studs
3. Pearl Necklace
4. Black Pump
8. Khaki Pants
9. Striped Tee
10. Dark Denim
13. Black Trousers
14. A touch of animal print
