Obsession: Rachel Zoe

14 Sep

"Style is sort of the best way to say who you are without having to speak."-R.Z.

The season premiere of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project brought a lot more than outrageous furs, big-framed sunglasses and the periodic “uh-mazing”s of celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe.  It gave fans an inside look to Zoe’s new fashion line.  I pretty much screamed, not just because of the clothes, but because the fit model was my high school friend Jordan.  It was crazy seeing her on TV with such an influential stylist.  She may have been the original reason why I tuned in that night, but Rachel herself is the reason why I will keep watching and have been obsessing about everything Zoe; including comedian Amy Phillips impersonation videos.

 

Not only am I obsessed with her line (available at major retailers like Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus) but I am completely in love with her.  I think she is AMAZING with her work ethic and passion for what she does and I only hope to one day love my job as much as she loves hers.

Professional Style: How to dress professionally without losing your sense of style

22 May
As my school year comes to an end and my internship with Nordstrom is starting in early June I have to start thinking about ditching my jeans and tennis shoes for pencil skirts and heels.  Just because I am supposed to dress more professionally does not mean that I need to give up my style.  I started thinking about what I would wear to work and wanted to put some ideas together.  I like the idea of mixing standard “professional” pieces like pencil skirts and blazers with feminine touches like ruffled tops and dresses.  Adding trendy accessories like neutral earrings and classic Mary Jane heels, which I am obsessed with, keep professional wear youthful.  I think clothes are an expression of ourselves, and we shouldn’t stifle that just because we are expected to dress professionally and conservatively.  You can still play and have fun with patterns, jewelery and feminine touches.  Look out world, here I come!
