Sneakers and Dresses.

Dress – New York and Company // Sneakers – Converse (Chuck Taylors)

Hey there!  Did you spring forward this morning?  I spent most of my morning working with a wonderful photographer, Nichole Alex. As a newbie in front of the camera, she made my experience a wonderful one!  Check her out. Photos from our collaboration are coming soon!

Y’all know I love a pretty dress.  But how about wearing a pretty dress with sneaks?  The beautiful thing about style is that it is individual, and we should own it.  As style architects we shape and mold. Most of us can even point out a time or a person who influenced  a facet of our personal style.

Many years ago, I saw an older woman (I was very young at the time) in a flowing midi skirt with a pair of brightly colored, high top Chuck Taylors.  She was definitely dressed edgy,  with a t-shirt, bolero denim jacket, fashionable tortoise shell eyeglasses and a neat pixie hair cut.  Her image is still etched in my mind. I appreciated the risk she took, because some fashion experts might see this type of pairing as a faux paus. However, I knew from the moment I laid eyes on her, tennis shoes and dresses would be a part of my style arsenal.  I’m 50 plus and counting, and it’s still with me.

Stylistas, do you have a outfit combo you’re afraid to rock?  Need some help putting it together?  Give me a call, and I’ll be happy to assist.  For more details, please click the “styling services” tab.

Until next time, love and light!
