Are you weary of your work clothes?

Are you weary of your work clothes?

Even if you work in a very conservative environment, work clothes needn’t be boring. Check out this elegant frient who is modeling professional-looking stylish clothing. And, yes, the phrase “professional-looking stylish clothing” is not an oxymoron! If you aren’t required to wear a jacket, I think cardigans are a great option. And, by now you should know how I feel about stripes (in case you don’t, I LOVE THEM!). I’m also pretty crazy for this blouse with a bow, it’s feminine and refreshing. Doesn’t she look stunning?

Do you shop consignment stores?

Do you shop consignment stores?

I have to thank this frient for introducing me to an amazing consignment store here in Salt Lake. Before shopping with her, I hadn’t spent much time in consignment stores. I have never been opposed to buying second hand items, I just didn’t think that a consignment store would have much variety. Well, Name Droppers has certainly proven me wrong. They have two locations and an easy to navigate website (www.shopnamedroppers.com) with a wonderful assortment of clothing, shoes, and accessories. We found this moto vest there and paired it with some distressed denim jeans from Zara (click here). I know, this frient could make a paper bag look stylish, but wow, what a knock-out!

And, Another Fabulous Frient

And, Another Fabulous Frient

banana republic wrap dressI promise I don’t seek out only beautiful women to style. That said, today’s post does feature another stunning frient. Clearly she’s attractive, fit, and wears clothes very well. But, she wanted a little help expanding her wardrobe, and enhancing her current look. I found this faux wrap dress at Banana Republic and I knew it would be perfect for her. We’ve paired it with espadrilles and I think it’s a great choice for a casual summer party. So, my new frient, enjoy your next summer BBQ, you look smashing!
