This is the best time of the year to find wardrobe essential price drops. Designer retailers are restructuring and updating their storefronts and early September is the best time to shop for outstanding deals. I find incredible steals at stores like Burberry, Club Monaco, Ted Baker, and Nordstroms to name a few. So if you have been eyeing that Marc Jacobs accessory or those Jimmy Choos for a while now would be a good time to plan a shopping trip or send your stylist to find the most incredible deals of the season for you.
Julie is one of my favorite collaborators. She is spunky, fun and always glamorous. She became a friend after a live one-on-one interview I did with her for a Fashion runway show about her Eco-Chic clothing creations. I asked her about her inspirations and how she got started designing. During our interview we burst into laughter and had to re-record our session several times but it turned out extremely fun and educational. Lol. Since then we collaborated on several photo shoots to showcase hew design works.

The Lyrics of the song for Project Elevate runway and video:
Free your mind
We're standing still
I'm traveling in stillness
Elevate your thoughts
Elevate your thoughts
Has been raised up
We're standing still in time
Elevate your thoughts
Free your mind, free your soul
Elevate your thoughts
Across the universe
Working at Maggies as a Boutique Stylist has been such a treasure. Learning from Mary, owner of the small boutique in Multnomah, has been very eye opening for me. Mary has been in the industry for over 40 years, and started out her career as a Nordstrom Manager. I gained a profound understanding of a woman's form and what wardrobe essentials will last for years to come. One of my favorite garment orders was always by the brand COMFY. We put together several looks for fall together including some comfy accessory scarves.
