The 80th Edition – Fashion Flashback…

I hope you enjoy this little fashion flashback, as I was reflecting on prior editions of Style Sessions I realized there are certain pieces that just seem to work with everything, style staples I believe everyone needs in their wardrobe.

I absolutely love my Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag and Ray Ban aviator sunglasses, these Michael Kors black patent heels (the best heels ever, still can’t believe they’re under $100!), GiGi New York leather clutch (love the monogram!), YSL Lipstick in #13 Le Orange and these J.Brand denim jeans.

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m excited to introduce you to our Head Stylist, Rachel from Rachel The Hat! How perfect and light is this summer dress…

How would you describe your style?  I would describe my style as colorful! I love to mix colours in my outfits, pairing colours that perhaps people may not have thought to have tried. One thing I know is that my style is ever evolving and i don’t think I’ve found my ‘signature style’ just yet. I love to try new trends and remix old items with new pieces.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I recently bought my first Jumpsuit (here) and I am absolutely loving wearing this item. It’s just so easy to dress up with some statement jewelry and heels or style casual with some flat shoes and a scarf.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I wanted an outlet for my love for fashion, at the time I worked in a male predominant industry where nobody even cared what i wore each day. Starting the blog and finding like minded ladies to talk fashion with was just the outlet I needed.  I also had just had my son Neo and felt i needed a push to get out of my comfy sweats and back in to real clothes. It worked too,Ii started to look forward to getting dressed again and then sharing with the blogasphere!

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch (Touche Eclat equivalent) amazing for my tired eyes! Eyebrow pencil (I am severely eyebrow challenged after being an over zealous plucker in my teens.. plus it was the 80’s.. thin was in!) Maybelline BB cream. So great for evening out my skin tone and is a great spf too!

What is your best beauty trick? Red lipstick! Every time! I swear by it. If I have a business meeting or an appointment and I immediately want to look put together, red lipstick does the trick. It also makes me feel chic and ladylike!

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I’m a Travel agent by day so this changes quite often for me. I’m also quite fortunate to have been to some lovely places too. One of my dream holidays was Borneo to go to the baby orang-utan orphanage.. that would be awesome! But then on a different day I would probably say anywhere (or multiple stops would be even better!) in Italy. I love Italy very very much. The food, the culture, the fashion… it’s my favourite place.

Tell us something not many people know about you?   Um, well this is very new and hardly anybody knows, but I’m currently working on a a brand new venture.  Yosa, is my new online boutique launching soon selling statement jewelry and accessories. I’m so excited!
