Radio silence last week because I was in Vegas and what happens there stays there (well except for the photo proof below and on Instagram). In truth, Vegas was full of wild days in a convention hall attending MAGIC, a fashion buying tradeshow, where I got a sneak peek at what we’ll see in stores soon (hint: lots of greens). It was inspirational both in the creative styling sense and also because I had the opportunity to meet fashion folks from all over.
These sort of events always make me reflect on what I can do different and better and I usually come up with a long list. This week, as I think about the list I made last week, I’m promising myself to also remember all of the ways I’m pretty awesome and staying true to them. Here’s wishing you the same, Foxes. Happy Monday! xo
P.S. Oscar Faves coming Wednesday!
Obligatory Vegas (& Harley?) sign selfie. It was super crowded as you can see– Anastajza and I were too impatient to wait for a clear shot!
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that champagne and shoes have played a (extra) big role in my life the past week. It was a fun-filled whirlwind helping a client get ready for a night at the Golden Globe awards. The importance of the perfect shoe for a special occasion is still fresh in my mind, so it’s no surprise today’s inspiration spoke to me.
Here’s hoping the week ahead gives you plenty of reasons to indulge in fab footwear and a glass of bubbles or two. Happy Monday, Foxes. xo
P.S. we are planning a best and worst dressed post…it’s coming on Wednesday.
Happy New Year, Foxes! If you’re like me, this particular Monday, the first of 2015, doesn’t just mark a beginning, it’s also the official end of holiday haze. On one hand, the New Year is extremely motivating. On the other, I just want to ignore it, sleep in and enjoy a little more holiday fun. It’s in this spirit that today’s inspiration spoke to me. Some Mondays, especially those after a lot of downtime, you just want to grab what you wore on Sunday Funday and carry the festivities into a new week (or year). It’s not just me, right?
Here’s to meeting the first Monday of the year ready to kill it, no matter what we’re wearing. xo
Feeling grateful one of my favorite holidays is so close, this Marc Jacobs’ nugget of wisdom seemed like the perfect way to start our Monday, Foxes. Whether it’s family time, Black Friday deal hunting or just lots of pumpkin pie, here’s wishing you loads of what you love this week. Happy Thanksgiving! xo
I’m not sure if you noticed while you were indulging in an extra hour of time-change fun, but the holidays arrived with a vengance this weekend. I mean Saturday morning I still had Halloween make-up on my eyes (so hard to get off!) when I passed a santa-at-the-mall snowscape on my way to being served a latte in a red Starbucks cup. Crazy.
Being someone who’s drawn to shiny objects, I’m making an effort not to be blinded by tinsely December decor before the Thanksgiving turkey even hits the table. One way I’m keeping focus: practicing gratitude for all the amazing people and opportunities in my life (you included, Foxes!). As the first week of November hits, do the same and make sure to appreciate all of the reasons (people!) behind your holiday planning. Happy Monday! xo
In addition to doing a lot of fall shopping for clients (and myself!) , I’m also speaking on style in front of a few groups of clients this month. I always feel a little bit of extra pressure to practice what I preach when I do group stylings— I mean it’s literally standing in front of an audience asking to be judged on what I’m supposedly an expert at. (Eeek!) I always try to wear something that’s equal parts fashion forward and accessible and that suits the group I’m in front of, whether an office of co-workers or a group on a mom’s night out. Most importantly, I always pick at least one undeniable piece that leaves no doubt I know style– it makes me feel a little bit invincible when I’m up for “judgement,” even if only in my head!
Truth is, every day is an opportunity for us all to attract admirers (or judges?!). Here’s to wearing at least one bit of undeniability that makes all of the people stare, in a good way. Happy Monday. xoxo
When trying on clothes, a question I always ask clients is “does it feel like you?” Sometimes clothes look amazing on you, but if they don’t express you or your style, they’re not for you. It’s always a happy moment when clients have a definitive answer to my question and even more exciting when they don’t. Working with a client to discover their personal style and and then seeing the happiness that comes when we find it is one of the best feelings a stylist can have.
The week (or two) ahead on Fawkeshunter is all about amping up your personal style. Well we’re always about that, but looking at the calendar, there will be even higher concentrations of it. Everything from what works and what doesn’t (VMA & Emmy’s Best and Worst Dressed!!) to fall trends to (of course) rulebreaking pieces that will make those trends your own. Get ready for the fun and have a happy Monday, Foxes. xo
