Shop // Holiday Gift Guide!

Welcome to Black Friday, the day holiday shopping Officially Gets Real and the race to find The Perfect Gift For Everyone is ON. For me, the thought of pushing through stampeding hordes of wild-eyed shoppers after spending 20 minutes trying to find parking is my own personal hell. Like most sane people, I prefer to shop online from the comfort of my bed, usually while finishing off a pint of Haagen-Dazs dulce de leche around...

Work // Presents and Presentation

The December issue of Cincinnati Magazine is out! This one was a toughie--in addition to writing a few Best of the City spots, I put together a pretty darn extensive gift guide, a fun tabletop setting with plenty of party-worthy barware, and pulled massive amounts of jewelry for both the monthly and Wedding mag (coming soon) photo shoots! Fun Facts: I visited over 30 shops to find the best of the best  for the gift guide. If...

Do Stuff // New Event Calendar!

With Thanksgiving less than a  week away, we’re officially in the Holiday Season, which means lots of events poppin’ up everywhere. This time of year, “events” usually translates to parties and shopping--which is fine with me! There’s so much going on that it would be impossible to share everything without putting some sort of calendar in place, so guess what I did?  Added a calendar! There’s a short list in the sidebar, or you can...

Rebranded!

Well. That took longer than I expected. I foolishly thought I’d be able to get the redesign done in a weekend, but cascading style sheets got jokes! Big props to web designers and developers--the coding process is tedious and requires serious attention to detail. No wonder the healthcare.gov website is screwy. Either way, The Style Sample finally has a new look! I wanted to simplify a bit, and I like a lot of whitespace and contrast...

Let’s Do a Makeover!

So I’ve been thinking about rebranding for a while, but a few weeks ago I realized it’s been almost four years since I redesigned this site! As many fashion trends have come and gone since then, it’s definitely time for a makeover. You know, something to give me a sense of control in a world of chaos. It’s more than simple aesthetics, though--as a full-time editorial stylist, fashion is now technically my profession, not just a...

Work // Pants and Candy

The November issue of Cincinnati Magazine is on newsstands! Check out what I've been working on: Candy Crush Fun facts: I spent almost an hour picking out the prettiest pieces of candy from Jenco Brothers, all of which cost almost $40! There’s a lot of direction involved in editorial styling--I made a diagram of a hand showing the nail artist exactly how to do the manicure, and visited the salon to pick out the colors beforehand. Holding things doesn’t seem...

Muse-ings: Fancy Shopping Carts and Floral Headgear

1. I tend to vacillate between extreme shapes and go for either skin-tight pencil skirts or super-full circle skirts. Right now, I’m in a circle skirt state of mind. 2. If real shopping carts were this glamorous, picking up groceries in the company of 200 of your closest neighbor-strangers might not be such a tedious chore. 3. I’m in dire need of a vacation and need to go to WHEREVER THIS IS I DON’T CARE LET’S GO. 4....

DIY: Tulle Headpiece

I did it! I finally got it together and did a DIY project! Of course, it was because I only had 30 minutes to do it and I needed something to wear THAT NIGHT and of course I didn’t take pictures or anything because I had no real idea what I was doing, but ha! Triumph! Here's what I used: 3 yards of tulle 1/2 yard netting black felt & scissors twist ties or pipe cleaner needle and thread So all in...
