Business Meeting Chic in HOT Weather!

I know that my version of what one must be dressed like for a business meeting is definitely varied from that of the “normal” workforce, but that’s why God invented styling!:)

Yesterday I went to a meeting with a production company (not for my own show, at least not yet:), and knew that I had to look stylish, professional, fun, trendy and overall, hot. This leaves an interesting mix of adjectives that would make most people’s heads hurt. Luckily, I had just the dress!

Here in NYC (I believe they have a few others on the east coast and in LA), we have a great store called Zara. You really should check it out. It has reasonable prices for trendy yet fun and professional clothing. Weren’t these three of the words I used in my description? I got this dress last year, not because I went to the store, but because it didn’t fit a client I had bought it for. This is yet another danger of my job because I think everything I buy is cute, no matter who it is for, if it doesn’t fit them I sometimes end up owning it. Oops.

This light, linen, jean colored dress hit all of my descriptive notes on how I wanted to woo the production company with my awesome ensemble. The ’50s throwback with the silhouette hit my trendy mark. Think Donna Reed and funk her out 2009 style. The classic, simple ring on my left hand kept it office appropriate by not overdoing it with jewelry (something I tend to lean toward:). What you can’t see if that I do have on a large, thick pair of ornate gold hoops so that I still put my stamp on the whole look! Now, I do have on sandals (studded for that matter!), but this is an informal meeting that took place in my friends office and I am selling myself as a fashion stylist. I am not trying to be a lawyer here! The point is, sandals may be inappropriate for most meetings, but not for this one.

Overall, this dress would be appropriate for any office. My client that I bought it for was actually a lawyer! Add a waist-length cardigan and a cute pair of flats and you would be good to go. I love looking fabulous all of the time and so should you!

I had to do it. I fought it. I kicked and I screamed. And yet, I caved. Yes folks, it is time to Twitter.

Alas, I always aim to be different and truly entertaining/useful in this world. So, there will be no Tweets about drinking coffee or telling you what my sandwich consists of, no, these Tweets will do nothing more than help your stylish wardrobe. As I roam the streets of NYC everyday, I always stop and wish I could tell the world about the fabulously dressed people I meet, or the amazing ensemble I am wearing that day. Or even shout from the rooftops about the crazy sale going on at a well-known store. Well now I can! And it benefits all of my readers, you too will now be in the fashion loop. You too can be the first to know about the cheap and chic deals going on all over town. You too can learn about the amazing outfits that would look oh so great on your back (copying is the greatest form of flattery:).

So without further adieu, sign up to follow me at Sass N Style on Twitter. And my dear followers, it is time to spread the word about everything Sass N Style! From Twitter to the blog to the episodes themselves, I recruit you to help Amy Salinger get that TV show you all want me to have! Imagine a full half hour of Salinger styling tips. I know, it is too exciting for words:)

Filming Sass N Style

So I know that all of you are dying to know about the glamorous behind the scenes stories from Sass N Style! Well here it is…. My awesome bedroom, Nate (my awesome film guy), my model and me. Super glamorous.

I took all of your fabulous suggestions for Sass N Style episodes and had to put together six shows immediately! Both myself and my awesome film guy, Nate, are going away for the summer. Coming up with that many episode ideas at once would definitely have hurt my brain. Nate and I joke that we are doing the jobs of a full team, location scout, hair/make-up, styling, filming, editing… You get the picture. Hopefully we hide it well with the finished product!:)

This particular episode is for the “Over 40 and Fabulous!” crowd. I was generously approached by Cathy, my model, to appear in Sass N Style. I know I always have girls that are in their late 20’s and early 30’s because they are all my friends! I am tying to recruit a more well-rounded model base so I can appeal to all types of men and women! Again, another hat I wear:)

Hope you enjoy all of the upcoming episodes and be sure the spread the word about Sass N Style! Go big or go home.

Cake Not Coke: Another Blog to Love!

I always find fabulous new blogs about everything fabulous along my travels and I feel it is my civic duty to introduce you to them. So without further a due, my I introduce CakenotCoke.com!

Cake Not Coke is the witty answer Hillary created to a question that she was consistently asked: “Hillary, you’re tall and beautiful, why don’t you model?”

Her Reply:

“Because I like cake not coke!”

We’re not saying that all models are on coke or anything narrow minded and ignorant like that. But it was simply a humorous explanation to why she never pursued modeling after high school.

During high school, Hillary was 5′11, 135lbs (and 36C cup!); tone long legs, flat tummy and large perky breasts. Yet agents and managers consistently told her to loose 15-20 lbs, which would have left her beyond rail thin. Life goes on, and she moved on.

Recently, after responding to the same modeling question with the same cute little answer she’s always used forever, Hillary decided to make good use of her slogan. With a bit of a tweak on the original meaning…

“I knew I couldn’t be the only one who doesn’t stress the little things and chooses to enjoy life. CakeNotCoke is about enjoying life and all of the delicious and chic things the world has to offer.

To be honest, I sometimes wonder, how my life would have been if, I had skipped dessert and possibly became a fierce model?

But then again…Why skip dessert or pass on the 2nd glass of wine, when you can be fierce in size six!” –Hill
