Amy’s Ultimate Styling Tips: Part 2

What’s that you say??? You are ready for round 2 of my ULTIMATE STYLING TIPS? Not to worry, I’m here to save the fashion day. I’m passing on some of my most coveted styling tricks so every gal, far and wide, can have the stylish confidence they deserve. 

 

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE OUTFIT YOU HAVE EVER WORN?

This Alice and Olivia dress was my Carrie Bradshaw moment!  What grown woman doesn’t dream of wearing a tutu as an actual outfit?? I wore this on the red carpet for Million Dollar Shoppers. I pulled this look together literally 3 hours before the event! Every girl needs a totally over the top moment! Say yes to something that seems just a little too crazy for you…..

 

 

 

 


2. WHAT IS THE ONE PIECE OF FASHION ADVICE YOU LIVE BY?

Don’t emergency shop, you end up with things that you don’t love and spend too much.  

STATEMENTS TO AVOID!

I love it except it doesn’t quite fit right!

The shirt is so cute, but I’ve never loved the color.

It was on sale so I bought it because it was a good price.

Make a shopping list by going through your current seasonal wardrobe before even thinking of actually shopping. It may be slightly more tedious, but you WILL save time and money by buying what you actually need. Stop wasting money and filing your closet with things you don’t LOVE.

 

 


3. HOW DO YOU SHOP FOR YOURSELF VS. YOUR CLIENTS?

For my clients we stick to a very specific shopping list & typically go to merchandised department stores because everything is under one roof. It is efficient because they have most sizes and LOTS of styles.

The world is my oyster when it comes to shopping for myself. From boutiques, to flea markets all over the world, to designer discount, to department stores…. Basically everywhere.  I have one ongoing shopping list with long-standing pieces I am searching for and one small seasonal list just as I create for my clients based on current holes in my wardrobe. And of course,  if I find something I love I just buy it!

 

 

 

 

 

 


4. WHOSE STYLE DO YOU LOVE?

Jennifer Lopez, because she thinks of every detail. The hair, nails, makeup, perfect accessories, she doesn’t miss a beat. Don’t just buy a great cocktail dress and then throw your tote bag on with it. Remember, it is all a look, every piece matters!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


5. WHAT ACCESSORY DOES EVERY GIRL NEED?

The perfect everyday bag. Think about the function this bag serves before thinking about style. What do you carry everyday? Do you like to be hands-free and not actually holding the bag? Do you like compartments in your bag? Once you have determined the reality of your life, then pick your perfect style!  Spend money on this, it is a cost per wear item. You will be wearing it everyday. It is the cherry on top of the sundae of your look!!!

Amy’s Ultimate Styling Tips: Part 1

It’s time to stop being selfish and share all of my deep, dark styling secrets. I enlisted my assistant Sara to play fashion reporter to gather all of this incredibly important information. Here goes……From my brain to your closet, here goes a 2 part series of MY ULTIMATE STYLING TIPS!!!

 

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FASHION QUOTE?

 

 

I always look to Coco. You never want to look overdone, you go from great to tacky in an instant.

 


 

2. WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNERS?

I LOVE J Brand skinny, high waist skinny jeans. They come in 2 styles, the Alana style for petite women (no hemming!) and the Maria style for ladies over 5’3″. They feel like leggings. Warning: They stretch A LOT so buy a size smaller then you think you should. I swear, they will be falling off of you otherwise. You will thank me later.

 

Alana, for the petite ladies under 5’3″

 

Maria, for those who were blessed with height over 5’3″

 

Chiara Boni La Petite Robe is the most perfect LBD (little black dress). Their dresses are basically created like a body shaper undergarment so they hold everything in! They are also timeless so you will have it for years. It is a pain in the ass to get on, but totally worth it.

 

 

Stuart Weitzman is one of my favorite shoe designers. They are great quality for the price point and always have a range of styles from classic to funky. My favorite high heel of all time is the Nudist style! They come in tons of colors and 3 different heel heights. The ultimate option for styling potential is the nude color, heel height choice is based on your pain threshold. Legs for days…..

 

Etsy.com is my go to place to shop from local artisans and support small jewelry designers. I find the best pieces at the best prices while supporting other fellow entrepreneurs!

 

 

Veronica Beard does the best blazers in town. They are perfectly fitted and a great wardrobe staple no matter what your day to day looks like. They immediately bring some sass to any look! Fun fact: They are sister-in-laws both named Veronica who decided to build a fashion empire together.

 

 

 


 

3. WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO OUTFIT?

For fall I go for high waisted jeans, a body suit and layer on one of my many leather bombers. I choose accessories and shoes based on how my day looks. Simple, chic and easy is the best way to go no matter who your audience is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FASHION TREND?

Sneakers for everything! I believe function and fashion should be best friends. I truly love a high top because it will work from fall all the way until early spring.

 

 


 

5. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE FASHION TREND? 

Being uncomfortable! Your confidence level will plummet if you can’t breathe or your feet are killing you. Feeling good is your ultimate accessory, you can be stylish without having to suffer.
