Style Blog

Hi I’m Alexandra, author + personal stylist since 2001.
Welcome to my blog where I write everything (except for the press pieces).

FASHION BS,
DO WE HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN LOOKING GOOD AND FEELING GOOD?
They say you must suffer for fashion. However I don’t believe fashion is the answer for real women today. Style however is the answer. There is nothing worse than looking great in a great outfit, but not feeling well inside. It’s almost like the compliments don’t sink in. And then what about feeling great? Maybe […]

DO YOU MAKE SOLVING THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR LIFE A PRIORITY?
For over 10 years, Laura dreamed of hiring a personal stylist. She worked hard and had a very full home life as a mother and wife.

POWER OF KINDNESS
With all that is going on in the world this week I felt like I could NOT address human challenge. While at the wellness retreat I had a few challenging moments. I would call them meltdowns.

Why Style Subscription Box ‘STYLISTS’ Could Hurt Your Style
I was at a weekend speaker summit where one of the speakers kept tugging down at her gorgeous embroidered top. There was no doubt that this was one of the most bad ass tops I had ever seen. But it was making her pull it down repeatedly. When she sat, the top rode up even more. […]

The 5 Layers of COMFORT How to be Comfortable and Chic
I would say one of the top words that comes up when talking with my clients about their desired style is COMFORTABLE. They put comfort above all else. Yes they want to look elegant, chic, sophisticated, but most of all be comfortable. While comfort seems like a simple enough request there are many different levels […]

Style Esteem,
Are you still waiting for that special someone to give you jewelry to die for?
Around the time I was turning 29 it became alarmingly clear that I didn’t have a husband on the horizon. I was a bit frustrated with that, but I decided to not let it stop me from traveling, shopping, or living in a way that lights me up inside. It was a pact I made with […]
