Having worked in fashion and magazines for the past decade,  I have spent my entire career helping women get dressed and look and feel their best. I started this blog as way to help real women dress for the lives they want to live and to end the what to wear struggle for good. Like many of you, I’ve always had a “closetful of clothes” and nothing to wear. I want to end this struggle that plagues so many of us by helping women to shop smarter, get creative with their closets, and learn the style secrets that the stylish editors and bloggers I work with know. I was tired of seeing so many bloggers and magazines show beautiful style inspiration that while amazing, was completely impractical for my life as a busy working professional on a budget. As the blog grew, so did my family, and now as a working mom, I’ve found myself with a whole new set of needs, style and otherwise. And what started as just a fashion blog aimed to help women get dressed has morphed into a lifestyle blog covering everything I’ve learned about beauty, life, decorating, motherhood, fertility, and more, but haven’t been able to find. In addition to my mission to help women shop smarter and dress for the lives they want to lead, I’m also sharing all the advice, recommendations and guides to the things my mom friends and I are constantly texting about, from traveling with a toddler to the cutest places to shop for baby clothes and even my struggle with infertility. I believe that our clothes are the armor we put on to conquer the world, and I know firsthand that the right outfit can give you the confidence to take on the world (while an ill-fitting outfit or a bad hair day even, can deflate your confidence). My goal is to help you dress and shop smarter so you never stare at closetful of clothes and have nothing to wear. Now with a family of my own, I know how important it is to design a space that helps you bond and how important my mom tribe has been in navigating pregnancy and parenthood and I hope this blog can also be a source of answers, support and help as you navigate the motherhood journey as well. I aim to address all the questions I couldn’t find answers to and the wisdom and experience of the amazing tribe of women I work with and get to call my friends and family.  My hope is to show the truth about motherhood, life, work, getting dressed and ready for your day and trying to create a stylish, functional and chaotic life that’s full, challenging and as real as they come.  Thank you for joining me on this journey!

I Hello I just saw the post from Julia above and I have to completely disagree with her. Olivia Palermo as a style icon and style forward dresser is a daily masterclass in how to get it right. You don’t have to agree with her politics, nor her personality etc. Just look and observe- nothing more if that’s how you feel….We can learn from the looks she creates and adapt them to the places you like to shop in….

Your shoes and boots all have such high heels. Soon into my working career I shucked those bad boys in favor of being comfortable while I got my work done. How can you tolerate those heels day in and day out?

Admittedly, I still salivate over heels. But my mind is aware there were 500 years of Chinese foot binding, and years past retirement my body appreciates a good, comfortable shoe more than ever. Yet the struggle between looks good and feels good continues….
