My Style Transformation


I have loved makeup and style since I was 12 and I have been helping women and men get dressed for a long time now.  But there was a time when I wasn’t so stylish.  Just after I had my first daughter at 21 , I was floundering in my style and my happy!  Jeez check the glasses and the hair, just terrible! While motherhood was such a blessing and I loved my baby girl, Katana, I was a little lost as to who I was anymore. I started on my style journey soon after.

I started working at a law firm and at 90 pounds was having a hard time finding anything that fit me that was even remotely stylish.  Soon after Katana came my second daughter Kaela.  I was off for another three months and I went back to work again.  Eventually I ended up temping at Pepco where under the mentorship of my boss Barbara Williams, I found some inspiration.  She was sooooo cool, the woman didn’t walk, she glided.  And she shopped at Ann Taylor, which I in no way could afford at the time, but it gave me a baseline.  I began buying pieces that I could afford and experimenting with my makeup and hair. My son Anthony, came along in 2000 to complete my little tribe. I dress him on a regular basis even though he complains non-stop.  My girls have their own sense of style and I just monitor them a bit to make sure there’s nothing scandalous going on!!

In 2002, I started my style business with my business partner and I knew it was what I was meant to do. Over the years, I trained with different Image Consultants like Carla Mathis and Stacy London.  I realized in looking at all these pictures how much my style evolved over the years and still continues to evolve everyday.  I hope my style journey gives you a bit of inspiration, like it’s given to me!  How has your style evolved over the years?  Send me some pictures!

Cuckoo for Coco Rae!


I had the pleasure of sampling a fantastic nail polish today from Coco Rae which was developed by Courtney Vines. The name Coco Rae came from her nickname Coco and her daughter’s middle name “Rae Anna. ” The color I have on below is called “Red-y” for you. The nail lacquers are “4-Free” of the toxic chemicals Toluene, Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), and camphor and are all long-lasting! Coco Rae Cosmetics is manufactured in the United States, yay!! There are 12 fantastic colors in the collection that are trendy and fashionable.  Check out the polish and Courtney here.  Let me know what you think! @KaraAllan
