It’s All In The Details

When I do anything, and I mean any thing, I think about all the details.  Honestly, it’s how I function in my life.  From my house, to planning a party, working with clients, and especially what I wear, I do think about every tiny detail.  I’m in my head saying, ‘nope that’s not right’ or ‘oh that’s it’, ‘ok now that changes this’…so everything becomes a process.

What I know is that I’m really good at taking into account all the details.  I don’t look at most rooms as being ‘done’ as our styles are constantly changing and evolving.  I do the same process with my outfits.  I don’t usually wear the same outfit in the same way.  I like to mix it up to stay on trend, for fun and fitting into the occasion.

Here is my example of taking ‘the details’ into account.

A Denim & Diamond Fundraiser

Layered sparkly necklaces

Silver skirt becomes a neutral

Nude heels to elongate

Top had embellishments but more for me!

Made my own belt and held together with a pin

Hair needed sparkle as well

DIY gold nails

My brightest clutch

DKNY denim topped off the look

This outfit was a big success at the event and I got a lot of attention for taking some chances and paying attention to the details.

I promise you if you pay attention and take time with how you’re wearing clothing and go the extra mile with your accessories and hair, you’ll look fabulous and enjoy yourself so much more!!  Go ahead, what are you waiting for, start working it girl!

Fall Style

Fall is when we pile on the layers.  When shopping for Fall clothing,  take into account your Basics and the Trends.  Basics are those staples that you already own: jeans, leggings, sweaters, scarves, button downs, boots and coats.  Trends are items that make your basics more specific: what kind of cuts, and popular colors & fabrics found on the runway.  Some items are timeless and will never change, the classics:  black leggings, jean shirts, trench coats, white button downs, ballerina flats and boots.  Rule of thumb, stick with the basics, always have the classics and add a couple trendy items.  Most trends come around sooner or later, so if you buy an expensive trendy item, hold on to it!

How to Find Your Style

e8e324dbfddb195cd76d1f9757b7c5c1

Our personal style is always changing and hopefully evolving, but if you feel like you don’t know what our style is, what to wear, what looks goods, then you’re normal!

The first thing I do when working with any client is ask questions.  What do you want to look like?  Where are you shopping now?  Once those questions are discussed I’ll have a good idea of what your “style image” is.  Next, it’s time to go through all clothing and accessories.  This is how to determine what is working for your body and towards your “style image” goal.

From there it’s easy to create a check list of items to buy.  The next step is the actual shopping.  Lastly, I coach my clients on how to put their outfits together.

Finding your style like everything else is a process.  My job is to make the process easy, manageable and fun!

Working together normally takes two or three, 2 hour sessions to accomplish the task of ‘finding your style’.  My current “Finding Your Style” session is going for $200 (normally $300).  This is a limited special.  To book your session, e-mail me at d.jacobsohn@zoho.com !

Spring Layers

Spring has arrived and I love the lighter layers paired with open toed shoes and light colors.  It’s all so refreshing, careless and cool.  Stripes never looked so good with this seasons hottest shoe, a sporty sneaker.  Matchy matchy is out- add a shoe with color for that added interest.  Dig out those shorts as they go with everything from dressy to tomboy casual.  The key is the balance of the outfit.  If you have baggy shorts then wear a tighter tank with a loose white blouse button up and eye catching sandals.  We all know spring temps are unpredictable so go with lighter layers that you can wrap around your waist or shoulders.  Don’t forget to lighten your make up and hair can be more casual and fun!

Now this is a garden display like none other!

Shoot your look before you decide

When it comes to any outfit that I put together I always make sure that it’s working for me, but when it comes to getting ‘dressed up’ I snap a photo first.  If you take a photo it will show if the clothing is accentuating or exaggerating your flaws.  A photo can reveal if the length is flattering, or if the color is too much for your skin.  Make sure to try on various accessories to see how they work or don’t with your outfit.  Remember accessories can make or break an outfit as its the icing on the cake.

I liked how this dress fell on by body.  I added a long pearl necklace doubled up or could have gone with a simple pendant necklace.

If the skirt was a bit shorter this would have looked a bit more flattering, but too business looking for the event I was attending.

I tried to skip the jacket and go for a vest to show a little skin.

I put on a lace Ralph Lauren blouse that was pretty with the lace skirt.  The shoes and necklace added a little more glam to the entire look.

The Burberry lace skirt came with this lace camisole but the top didn’t add any shape to my body.  I decided to go with the first white outfit.

This process takes a lot of time, but you can see how creative you can get with just a few pieces.  I like looking at how the clothes look on the camera as it gives me an idea of what other people see.  Planning what your going to wear is key to looking your best.  Don’t just stop at ‘buying the outfit’ but go all the way with experimenting with your shoes, handbags and jewelry.

Sneaker Ball

Attending fundraisers is always a pleasure.  I really enjoy supporting local causes and especially when they benefit children.  There is nothing more heartwarming than knowing you can do something to make a difference in a child’s life.

The Sneaker Ball was a benefit to raise money for Jaden’s Ladder and their “Ballers to Scholars” Program.  This ball took place at the beautiful Empire Restaurant & Lounge in Boston.

This time of the year we have plenty of snow and temperatures ranging in the 40’s and lower in the evening.  So deciding what to wear wasn’t hard, but keeping warm was!!  You know me, I’ll practically wear anything for fashion, so I wore my shorts!

When wearing sneakers I don’t normally think of dresses, but plenty of ladies rocked this look.  I like to be sporty when I can, so shorts and a tank worked perfectly with my wedge sneakers!
