Style Statement - creative open love

Our goal is to ensure that Kathy feels creative, excited, loving and enthusiastic.  The foundation of this goal is comfort, both physical and emotional.  The aim is to create outfits that fit beautifully but feel like jammies- this will lay our foundation and allow us to embellish with great accessories.

style inspiration - CREATIVE OPEN LOVE

The key with Kathy is to slim the top half of her body and create shape with jackets and vests. Skirts and dresses are GREAT for Kathy’s body shape.  They allow the top to be fitted and comfortable while creating shape and volume at the bottom.  We want Kathy’s outfits to emulate her creative spirit and the best way we can do this is to ensure the foundation of the outfit fits her perfectly and then we add accessories in her soft autumn color palette.  Carrying a beautiful handbag such as this Zac Posen will be great.  We recommend that Kathy shop at Lastcall.com,  saksoff5th.com, and Nordstrom.  Quality fit and fabric will build confidence and allow us to build a sustainable wardrobe.   Outfit One We want Kathy to be super comfortable.  These leggings have incredible reviews and with the skirted overlay we get coverage and bottom-half width. The knit blouse will create a nice slim palette while the vest will be the finishing piece to elongate and slim.  Kathy - do not shy away from drawing attention to your beautiful round face.  Look for earrings that are longer than they are wide.  We love this boot and will be the perfect finishing piece to ensure her top half appears in good proportion to the bottom.  The necklace is key here- it will create a vertical line and connect the amber earring with the beautiful cognac boot.   Outfit Two Again, the dress accomplishes the same aforementioned objectives.  The jacket creates shape and waistline.  We recommend adding a sheer tight with a control top if the weather is chilly.  Spanx hosiery is great.  The necklace will elongate and add waist definition.  The bootie will complete the look and look especially great with tights.   Outfit Three We really love this outfit for Kathy.  Again the amazing jacket is going to slim while the striped tunic will create dimension adding to the slimming effect.  The pendant necklace will help create a waist.  Skinny leg pants, such as legging, are not ideal so the bootcut jean will balance kathy’s proportions.  The cut and color of this denim will accomplish this nicely.  It’s super important that the bag  has structure- we need to create defined lines whenever we can.  I love this bag for Kathy’s shape, height and color palette.   Outfit Four Comfort, comfort, comfort.  The shape of this dress will feel like Kathy’s favorite outfit, a tee and sweats, even when paired with a nice shaping tight.  The vest will create a long vertical line and add comfort.  Every outfit will flatter Kathy’s beautiful soft autumn color palette and show her the comfort and a defined style are not mutually exclusive.
