Ami was satisfied with the spring looks I helped her put together, so she asked me back into her closet for fall. Sadly, she’ll have to put her hot denim, bell bottom romper away for the time being and bust out her booties because halter top weather is officially over.
The focus of our session for fall was how to work the few new pieces she purchased into her existing wardrobe in a way that was edgy and unique, but still wearable. Last season she livened things up, now she wants to push the fashion envelope a bit farther … but without venturing into Lady Gaga territory. I advised her to pick out a few statement pieces and buy at least one piece that she loved, but didn’t think she could wear. Keeping all this in mind, click through to check out the outfits I came up with.

When Ami asked me to give her styling tips on how to work new spring trends into her wardrobe, I was excited to play dress up with her. The focus of our session was on how to work the few new pieces she purchased into her existing wardrobe and how to subtly incorporate spring trends without going over the top. Since Ami is on a strict shopping budget, as many of us are, it’s important for her to know which pieces to save on and which to splurge on. Ami is 33 (she gave me permission to reveal her age) and as much as she loves keeping up with new fashions, she also acknowledges that she needs to keep her style more classic and chic, only adding trendy touches to her wardrobe when she wants to liven things up. As her official stylist, I advised her to pick up trendier pieces at the more affordable stores, while investing in the timeless basics. I also happen to know that Ami’s fashion muse is Stevie Nicks,and although she’s not about to start wearing capes, I made sure to incorporate hints of bohemian chic and free-spirited ’70s child into her spring looks.

Earlier this week stylist Stefany Mohebban raided my closet and helped me find some hot, new looks hiding in my existing wardrobe. While she was working magic on my wardrobe, I asked her to take a peek and tell me what I was missing. I always try to shop for stuff I need, but I get confused, lose steam and end up buying more of what I already have. Does that happen to anyone else? Go shopping for a skirt, come home with another pair of skinny jeans. How? Once and for all, I wanted to know what I really need to buy. From a professional. Click through to see Stefany’s picks for me. I see a shopping trip in my future! Or at least an online one.
