Fashion Files: October 2011
From Rebecca

A cold front has FINALLY arrived and we've made it through another blistering summer in hot Houston.  Now you can really start to think about switching over your closet seasonally.  Be sure and check your Fall staples to see what we can help with. Your boots may need to go to the cobbler -- check the soles and heels for wear and ask for a little spit shine while they're there.


Start wearing your darker colors and put away all those florals and the white cropped pants.


Any lingering super summery sandals need to go up by Oct 15th!

Pull out your boots and buy some new socks - it's time for Fall!
What to Buy Right NOW! 
It seems like summer just ended, but NOW is the time to book your appointment for holiday photos and to plan what your group will be wearing.  We love Lis Purdy and she loves us back - she is offering our clients a special package. Don't wait!
