The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to set new goals for yourself and begin to cross off those “I’ve always wanted to do that” items off your list. If one of those goals is to revamp your wardrobe, learn how to dress for your body type, and add some investment pieces into your closet, hiring a personal fashion stylist might just be what you need to kick-start the process. I’ve been a fashion stylist for over eight years and this time of year is always very busy for me because lots of guys and gals are wanting a fresh start in the wardrobe department. My clients range from working professionals who are simply too busy to shop, to stay-at-home moms who are stuck in a style rut. I understand that it can be intimidating if you’ve never worked with a stylist before, so I’ve outlined three major reasons why you should just go for it!

  1. A fashion stylist will save you time. One of the major reasons people hire me is because they simply don’t have the time to shop. Your time is valuable, so why not leave your shopping to the professionals? I offer at-home shopping sessions to save you time and money. This is when I bring items to your house so that you never have to step foot in a crowed mall again. You keep what you love and I take back what you don’t. This is an easy way to update your wardrobe without ever having to get out of your yoga pants!
  2.  We know what looks good on your body type. It can be really frustrating when you have to wonder if the clothes you’re wearing are flattering to your body. As a fashion stylist, it’s my job to know what types of silhouettes look good on my clients and which don’t. One of my goals is to always educate my clients on which shapes, cuts and brands suit their unique body type. Uncomfortable with that extra weight you gained over the holidays? Think nothing fits you because you’re 5’1 and have no boobs? Not to worry! We’ve seen it all and can help you find the perfect fit to flatter your figure.
  3. We can save you money. The biggest misconception about fashion styling is that is costs a lot of money. However, investing in a stylist can actually save you money in the long run. Just think about it. How much cash have you spent on pieces of clothing you only wear once or twice because you weren’t thrilled about them in the first place? How much time do you spend wandering through the department stores, only to come out with a gift for your kid and nothing for yourself? When you have an expert guiding you through the shopping experience, you begin to learn how to invest in clothing that you will love for years to come and begin to find what works for your unique body shape, lifestyle, and budget.

If you’re thinking about hiring a fashion stylist, now is a great time to get started. Be sure to set up a pre-shopping consultation to make sure that you feel comfortable with the stylist you choose to hire and check out their website to get a feel for their personal style. If you’re in the Orange County, Los Angeles or San Diego areas, email me at info@sophiemaestyle.com for a complimentary style consultation via phone. I look forward to being apart of your style journey!

Happy 2016 everyone! I apologize for the delay in publishing this post. I was traveling all week and then caught a horrible cold, so I’ve been in bed for the past four days trying to get better. Not the most exciting way to start the New Year, I know, but I’m rolling with it! January is one of my favorite times of year because I love the idea of beginning anew with fresh dreams and goals.

This year, I created a video where I share my top five style/lifestyle resolutions for 2016. My list includes everything from maximizing my wardrobe to getting out of my comfort zone and traveling more. I think it’s important to share your goals with others so they can encourage you achieve them. I would love to hear about your New Years resolutions as well!

As for my New Years Eve outfit, I was feeling the 1960’s vibe this year. While most gals want to bare as much skin as possible, I’m all about the “less is more” sensibility. This Elizabeth and James fridge dress is perfect for cocktails and dancing the night away. I paired the dress with a metallic Jimmy Choo clutch because I just love the rich combination of black and gold. The heels are Charles David. I’ve had them for ages, but they never fail to get lots of compliments.

I hope you all had a safe and fun New Years and I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings!

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and is enjoying the four day weekend! The hubs and I are headed to Colorado to visit friends (bring on the down jackets!), but I thought I would post my January giveaway a little early. This month, it’s all about Rocksbox. I’ve been raving about this service for months because I think it’s just so smart! Rocksbox is like Netflix for your jewelry. When you sign up, you’ll get three pieces of designer jewels sent to your mailbox each month. You can wear them, buy them at a discount, or simply send them back to get three more pieces. I mean, how cool is that??

I created a video on my YouTube channel so you can check out the pieces I got this month. PLUS, the video contains a special giveaway that you won’t want to miss, so be sure to watch until the end! Want a free month of Rockbox on me? Simply use promo code sophiebff41 when you sign up!

Best of luck!
