Over the last three months, I’ve noticed a disconcerting trend among my 5’3 and under clients, one that I now must address. I don’t know exactly when stores unleashed ‘petites’ (my guess would be the 80s when most everything was excessive and useless), but they are obsolete at best, detrimental at worst. Now don’t get… [Cont.]

With Spring on the horizon, most women know that they should clean out their closets; very few actually will. For one thing, it’s a massive undertaking. Even if you’re among the fortunate few who know what should stay and what should go, you then have to answer the call to get rid of things you… [Cont.]

It’s never fun to tell a client when they have to spend a lot of money. Currently, I’m helping create a style concept for a client’s new home and source the best pieces for the least amount of money (the Mile High Style special, so to speak). I recently had to give the splurge speech,… [Cont.]

briefcase

When it comes to carrying around their things & stuff, modern men have many options. The basic backpack is big in casual Boulder, the man purse (or ‘murse’), i.e. the messenger bag is more a ‘New York thing’, and some daring gentleman go retro with the briefcase. Thanks to the popularity of ‘Mad Men’, mid-century… [Cont.]
