Every now and then the technology world makes life a little bit easier for us. Well, in this case they’ve helped take the stress out of getting dressed! StyleBook has become my new obsession. So, what is it? StyleBook is basically a virtual wardrobe, it allows you to organize your clothes, style looks, create packing guides, and add outfits to a calendar – all using pieces you already own. Stylebook is extremely user-friendly and available on your iphone or ipad. Here’s the rundown of how to use it and what it does for you!
-Take pictures of items you own i.e. clothing and accessories that you would want to use in outfits (works best if taken on all white background, a white sheet works well)
-The app automatically edits and outlines the pictures, then all you have to do is organize them according to your preferred category (tops, pants, shoes)
-Next you can create complete outfits by using the pieces you’ve uploaded and organized–you can even categorize the looks based on your life roles i.e. work, saturday night, luncheons etc.
-Some great extra features of this app include the packing guide (great to add looks to and helps you avoid over packing), the calendar (add looks you wore or will wear to the calendar to help you remember and not wear the same outfits with the same people, the app will also keep stats for you) and the ability to add inspiration pictures you may come across!
Stylebook is truly revolutionary and one of the best tools to take the stress out of getting dressed (next to hiring me, of course:))))
Have any of you tried StyleBook? Would you? We want to know!
Stop the presses! Finding a proportionally balanced cropped cardigan for dresses and skirts is nothing short of a treasure hunt but we’ve found a great option not to mention its only $15.00!!! Old Navy’s cropped rib-knit cardi comes in over 10 colors/prints and ranges in sizes from XS to XXL. It’s available online and in store. At $15 a piece I would recommend getting a few in different colors and maybe doubles in the basic colors like black, white, or oatmeal. Don’t miss out!
Here is a fab find that’s sure to help with budget, convenience, and sure to keep the compliments coming! Now, introducing the “Blow Dry Club”! For a limited time, the lovely stylists of Lavish Color Salon offer UNLIMITED blow dry’s for just $65 a month! I personally am part of the club and had to share this great offer. Good hair days here I come!!!
At Hallie Headquarters we got a hot tip — That the Old Navy Rockstar jeans look and fit similar to the much pricier Rag and Bone Skinnies.
And the tip (thank you informant!) was right on. I not just bought one pair. I bought two for $70 bucks (although I think the dark wash fit more like my J Brand than Rag and Bone, but whatever – a win’s a win:). They look great tucked into boots as well as with booties and they come in every color imaginable (cords too). Plus, when my son spilled nacho cheese all over them at the OSU football game – I didn’t even flinch – $34.99 vs. $200 for a pair of jeans, keeps things totally in perspective.
When working with my clients I will shop anywhere from Target to Chanel, I’m a firm believer of your wardrobe combining a high-low mix. Although it may sound too good to be true, imagine getting some of your favorite designer brands at an H&M price point! My friends this may be the FAB FIND of the year! NCJW’s Designer Dress Days is hosting their 44th annual event not only to provide the public with a unique shopping experience, but more importantly to aid their programs for women, children, and families. You will have access to a selection of new or gently used items at a fraction of their original sale price, and quite frankly much lower than the current selling value! Case and point this St. John Jacket (see below) is selling for $100, it retailed close to $1000 and is in excellent condition! This is just one example of the amazing merchandise on dozens of racks! I mentioned firmly believing in a high-low mix for a well-rounded wardrobe and am equally enthusiastic about having those one-of-a-kind pieces integrated to add that extra umph! There is plenty of umph here at this event just waiting to be given a new life. I will be attending on the special preview day, this Friday from 10am-4pm styling on the spot. I anticipate lots of fun creating new outfits with these pieces! Meet me there!
