As you all know (or maybe you don’t), we are two women whose business revolves around one’s image. Naturally, because we are women, we gravitate towards helping other women. Although we love our male clients too, we get more pride out of helping other women look and feel their best, get them organized in the home and office, and basically, help improve their overall image. We have been working on a blog post about young professional women but since the recent election, we felt the need to expand and reach out to all women.
Now this post is not about the election or its results but more about some behaviors we have seen during the election and after its results.
No matter what the results were of the election, it does not mean that as women, we are doomed. Sure, Trump said some awful comments about women but we are not going to let that stop us from being smart, successful women. Hillary could have been the first female President of the United States but she too, was flawed. So we are going to move on, put our 100% support behind our President for the better of our great country, and wait for the right woman to come along to be the first female President of the United States.
Here’s how you do that: FIGHT BACK. And not by holding up a sign while marching down the street or crying defeat in the camera, but by fighting back in a strong and classy way. We know that it is our right to protest; however, we are just not convinced that type of protest actually makes a difference. The type of protest that does make a difference is education. So educate yourselves. Get up every day, and work hard towards your goals. Never give up. If you are offended by what a man (or anyone) says then prove them wrong. Do not give them more ammo.
If we as women want to be treated the same as men in the workplace then we have to “be” men in the workplace. Now we know that this statement may strike some nerves but we stand behind it. Just hear us out. Lets toughen up ladies. Do not dish it out, if you cannot take it. Remember when you’re Mom told you as a child that if someone said something mean to you, you should say back to them, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”? Well, that still applies even as adults except you don’t literally say that out loud to someone but we highly recommend saying it to yourself in your head....over and over. Words are words. Sure they hurt, and yes, mean things should not be said but unfortunately, that will never change.
There will always be mean people that say and do mean things. What will set you apart is how you REACT to these situations. You can kick and scream or you can prove them wrong. We will tell you the latter is much more becoming. We actually saw a video of a lady defecating on the street and then pick it up and smear it on a Trump sign. Ewww, ewww and ewww....We can PROMISE this kind of behavior will get us women nowhere!
So please, ladies, whether you are a stay-at-home Mom or the CEO of a major corporation, you must be strong, bold and beautiful. In order to be these, we have to be educated, humble and healthy. Read as much as you can, take a walk, ENJOY your children, bond with your pets, work hard, indulge in a hobby, learn from your experiences and others, love your significant other, volunteer your time to charity, SUPPORT EACH OTHER….live your life to the fullest. Now, that is an image that all women can be proud of. Always be a fighter. Always a survivor. Who knows...maybe YOU will be the first female President of the United States of America. THAT is inspiring!

We wanted to share some photos of our fall photo shoot we styled a couple months back. We had so much fun doing this shoot with our amazing model Katie Johns, photographer Caleb Shane and hair and makeup by Taylor Barr. It's very inspiring when you are working with such talent as this group of people. Fall is full of texture, rich colors, and of course, luxurious fabrics. We are totally ON BOARD!

It's becoming more and more common for us to see plus size models gracing the covers of big name magazines, and for women with curves to be celebrated across all avenues of the fashion and beauty industry. The image of the teeny weeny model is not a reality for all, and the public is demanding some diversity. And we think that's great! We celebrate all body types: straight and curvy and everything in between; however, you cannot find a ton of information on how to dress the plus size body. Well, that's what we are going to do in this blog. We'll give you some tips on what looks best, and how to pair items up to compliment your God given beauty.

When we are dressing a plus size client, we almost always go fitted. When you have a larger bust size or a curvy hip, then wearing a fitted dress will give you that hourglass shape that is super sexy. If this makes you a little self conscious, then add a wrap around your shoulders for some extra coverage. And we are completely in love with this look that famous plus size model, Ashley Graham, put together. Casually draping a blazer over her shoulders still allows you to see her curvy figure but gives her the extra coverage over her shoulders and arms. Perfecto!

Here we have put a fitted textured skirt with an asymmetrical hemline with a fitted lace sleeve blouse. These two items together will again show off those curves that are so amazing about your figure. We paired this with a longer length menswear vest which gives the rump a little extra coverage but also sends this look into trend worthy headlines! This whole outfit suggests confidence and playfulness and those two put together exudes a strong and powerful woman.
The BIGGEST SECRET to pulling off any look beautifully is, of course, your under garments. You must go with seamless and you must go with comfort. There are lots of different brands out there that are great for both. Please, if you have not already, go get fitted professionally for you bras. This will make a huge difference just in itself. If you have not been fitted professionally, then we can pretty much promise you, you are wearing the incorrect size. We will link some under garments that we like as well as some more plus size options for your clothing!
