My 5 style rules to live by...

1. Shoes set the tone for your outfit.

2. The key to great personal style is FIT.

3. Less is more. (Less makeup, less clothes, less fuss, less options can be so freeing!)

4. When you get dressed in the morning, ask yourself this one question, "Do I look elevated?"

5. Buy the best that you can afford (don't be fooled by sales) and don't wait for special occasions to use what you have!
