How To Find Your Signature Style



As a fashion consultant, my job is to help people learn how to dress for their body type and what looks best on them. But, we all have our own signature style that comes through. Some of us know what our signature look is at a young age and some develop it later in life. Here are some tips to help you find your signature look.

Accentuate your best assets. What is your favorite feature of your body? It can be long legs, flat stomach, muscular arms, nice booty or even your boobs! What ever it is, dress to show it off. One of my personal motto's is, if you've got it flaunt it!

Figure out your signature accessory. About 10 years ago I started wearing big earrings to make my ears look smaller. So my signature accessory that I always wear is big, statement earrings. Some women love pearls, so they wear either a pearl necklace, bracelet and/or earrings. If you haven't found your signature accessory yet, don't be afraid to experiment. Try on different jewelry pieces that you've never tried before.

Find your style muse. A style muse is someone who's personal style you admire. You can find it in a celebrity, a movie, a culture or a fashion designer. I love the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn. Even though the movie was made in 1960, the pieces she wore in the film are timeless and classy. I also love the fashion look of the Indian culture, the bright colors with gold are gorgeous. Like Breakfast at Tiffany's and India, I wear a lot of classy pieces with a colorful twist.

Find out what colors look good on you. Everyone has a color that makes them look absolutely gorgeous and we also have colors that make us look washed out. Figure out your skins undertone and play it up. There are several ways to find your undertone. First, look at your veins on your wrist. Do they look blue or green? If they are blue you have a cool undertone. If they are green you have a warm undertone. Cool toned women look better in blues, greens, pinks, and purples. While warm toned women look better in yellows, reds, oranges, and browns. To read more on finding your color check out Style Caster.

Make sure your clothes fit. A lot of women make the mistake of wearing the wrong size clothing. Either, they wear them too loose or they are skin tight. Either way is extremely unflattering. You don't want to look like you are wearing men's jeans out and you don't want to look like a biscuit popping out of a can. Also when it comes to length of pants or tops you don't want to go too short or too long. Don't be afraid to go to a tailor.

So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

H&M for kids

Both of my sons are very fashion forward. With that being said, before I had children I had no idea little boys are so concerned with their appearance. Or maybe they took after us, after all my husband and I put a lot of thought into what we wear. My oldest son Jackson is the worst. If he doesn't like what outfit I pick out for him, he makes sure to let me know. Jameson is the almost as bad, he has to have his hair fixed every time we leave the house. 

Like every other american, I love h&m. There clothes and accessories are super chic and very affordable. It wasn't until last week when I received an H&M catalog in the mail that I realized they sold little boys clothing(be still my beating heart). Like everything else from H&M, its super affordable(cha-ching)! 


These are my favorite looks for the spring collection for boys.


Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.
