The seasonal projects I enjoy most are working with client & friends to navigate the overwhelming task of wardrobe shopping.  My job as a Personal Stylist is to evaluate my client's style aesthetic, garment & accessory needs, then assist to make the right choices in the store & in ones closet.  Now is the time to evaluate what is in your boudoir, (or what isn't) and start preparing for Spring!

My friend, Barbara has had a pretty crazy year: she completed a Master's in Learning Science, Northwestern University in Dec., 2011. In March of 2012, doctors discovered that she had a non-cancerous tumor in her brain. Last year, called for two surgeries, six weeks of radiation, followed by monthly chemo treatments.  

Now doing much better, with the end of treatments in sight; it's an important part of her healing process to have some fun new outfits, showing friends & family that she is feeling well!  Barbara has courage & strength beyond comparison, and I admire her greatly. 

When on a budget, what better place to go, then Trends resale Boutique in Oak Park?  As my friends at Trends are saying right now: "put a little SPRING into your step" and come shop the Spring Debut, Friday March 15th.

Have a look at the cute separates we found for Barbara.  Everyone need a little leopard, I do frequently say - and this cute, stretchy peplum top from 'Sweet Pea' is perfect under a jacket or quite flattering on its own.  How about the Diesel denim jacket, a great basic - paired with a floral pink t-shirt, and her own black cropped trousers.  We found a dynamic print dress, cute jewelry, & two pair of amazing pumps, too!  

I hope we have inspired you to get out there and grab a few key pieces, or a whole new wardrobe for a fashionable new Season!  If you crave more fashion news and advice, follow me on Twitter and Facebook, and subscribe to my Styling Newsletter: you can sign up by visiting my website:
