Emily's Top 5

1.  Check out these gorgeous earrings from my friend Amanda of Amanda Sterett Jewelry Design! Amanda is offering a 20% discount from August 15 to September 15 on online orders.  All you have to do is pick out your favorites and submit the code: emily2011 at check-out.

Livvy Earring

Livvy- $275 ($220 with discount)

2.  I cannot get over this gorgeous deep teal color for the fall! Look into this top from Anthropologie to incorporate this trendy color into your closet.

3.   A fall staple for me is s pair of jeans in dark denim.  My favorite is James Jeans Reboot Jewel Blue.  You can order these online or shop them at Tootsies.

4.   I've been dying to get my hands on a Missoni piece- their prints are so identifiable and the zig-zag pattern has definitely proved its longevity. Luckily, Target will be releasing their new line of Missoni products on September 13, so be sure to rush to the stores and grab your favorite pieces once they come out!
Missoni Sneak Peek

5.   I love darkening my nail polish when fall rolls around and right now I am obsessing over OPI Miami Beet! Be sure to look for this color next time you're getting a mani/pedi.

News from Rebecca

We are in full swing of scheduling clients for Fall.  Please contact us soon - even if you want to wait until October.  We don't want you to miss out on the the best picks of the season- especially if you are a hard fit.


I am super excited about the line up of Fall color coming in.  The jewel tones always make me feel happy - Watch out for the bell, butterfly and fly away sleeves in the stores.  Make sure the tops give you shape and don't make you look like an umpa-lumpa!


Let's hope all of this Fall clothing will usher in cooler weather with it!


"While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her self-confidence - which, I believe, does make the woman."
