Kyle Does a Tiny Edit of Lani’s Closet!

Although I have plenty of clothes I love (and, therefore, plenty to wear), I have been frustrated of late with how crowded my closet has become. I should also mention that I took great advantage of the January sales, which probably did not help matters. And then I read Courtney Carver‘s “10 Tiny Steps to Take Towards Your Tiny Wardrobe,” and I was like, “I must do something!” (Scroll down to read the steps and click through for the details on her website.) Yep, it was time to purge the personal stylist’s closet. So who does the stylist ask for …

Superdry, Superwarm, and Supercute!

I’d been on the hunt for a new winter coat for a while before I learned about the British brand Superdry. As warm as my lightweight down coat from The North Face is, it is also a size too big and my puppy poked several holes in it with her tiny teeth while she was going through her teething phase last winter. (What can you do?) Winter coats don’t come cheap, so I was struggling to find a quality coat that was both my style and in my budget. I was about to give up when my boyfriend (who was also …

May the Force of Fashion be with You

Who’s pumped for the new Star Wars movie? (*raises hand and bounces excitedly*) I was late to the Star Wars fandom.

In 2015, my boyfriend convinced me to watch the original Star Wars trilogy as preparation for the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens that year. While I had to giggle at the dated graphics and less-than-perfect acting skills of all but the fabulous Carrie Fisher …

Perfect Summer Sweaters

When RosaLovesDC tells me to go see a designer, I don’t ask questions, I make an appointment. The very first spring/summer collection from Virginia Blanca Arrisueño of DeNada Design hit the ball out of the park. Way out. Virginia has translated a traditionally fall/winter line made from Alpaca into cotton knits light and airy enough to wear in the swamp of DC but still stylish enough for the streets of any fashion capital. Usually when I meet a new designer, I need a little bit of time to sit with the line before pulling for clients. Not this time. I walked out …
