black chicConfession: l LOVE to wear chic black (leather) pieces even though I have a closet full of color!  You?


This is what I created to wear to the Matt Talbot Center auction on Monday….I started out with color and then quickly fell back in love with these understated tailored pieces that just fit my shape to fit and flatter:  leather pencil skirt + leather shell + ponte knit off white novelty jacket to keep the Seattle chill off!

My brand and personal style is definitely anchored in classic “with a twist”.  That twist can be:  chic, edgy, feminine, trendy, sporty, or _______, but it begins with (tailored) classic!


Tell me about your style!!!  Do you like neutrals or fashion color?  What’s your statement of style for auctions and other fundraisers? …And how do you feel about leather?


TOP 3 TIPS for Leather

1.  Reserve leather dresses/skirts for (mostly) standing occasions.  Leather stretches quickly out of shape when sitting for periods of time.

2.  NEVER put adhesive name tags on your leather or suede  🙂 – think networking functions!

3.  If you have broad shoulders or are curvy, look for soft fluid leather pieces that drape well on your frame.


Happy Fashion Friday folks!
