That was just a corny peek into our 'pre-courtship' and why 'Scared of Stripes' immediately came to mind as I started this post :)
I've heard the age old 'style rule' uttered by many of my clients that they shouldn't wear stripes because it makes them look bigger. There is some logic to this of course, as the eyes do follow certain lines and shapes, so it is in fact an overall 'artistic' principle. Despite such, I do urge my clients not to be afraid of stripes, but rather to have fun with it! Since it doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon, you can truly style it to your heart's content. This was just my take on a simple black and white striped dress, which I plan to re-style for the warmer months, but works perfectly for layering season!

I am no slave to any brand, nor do I only shop in 'certain' stores. I'm an equal opportunity kinda gal when it comes to a good sale, quality or a bargain! I love mixing my brands, retailers and price points to stay in budget and get the most out of my very functional wardrobe.
I love finding a bargain, and it is quite literally my job to get the best for my clients; both of the products I find, and my service. Finding your style need not break the bank, so schedule a quick consultation with me (i.e. skype or coffee date!), and let's find an ImaGen package that can work for you. You can call me "The Bargain Whisperer" ;)
