I love clothes, obviously, right?  But what is it about them that makes my heart sing and makes me feel superb?  Well, it’s the way they come in so many colors and textures and I love when they feel just right.  I love patterns, even though I can feel overwhelmed by them, and especially love combining them by pairing colors and shapes in unique but elegant ways. I love when you notice what I did with an outfit especially.  To me, clothes are a smart way to attract attention and create art.

What about you?  If you’re reading this far, you too must have an affinity for clothes.  Something about them makes you feel beautiful and well-prepared for an adventure or a romance or they give you confidence to achieve a goal or they make you feel cool and groovy hanging out with a friend over coffee.  Luckily, since I’m a Stylist I know the questions to ask, so you too will know more about why you relish a superb look.
