Pumpkin spice lattes are back and all the fall decor has hit the shelves! I’m so excited about the temperature cooling down soon, all of the fun fall activities, and mostly, the fall fashion! I’ve loved seeing the street styles from NYFW, too. There’s nothing like a fall fit to get you inspired. Ready to […]
My friends, fall is almost upon us! (Well, maybe you wouldn’t know that if you’re still feeling the heat like we are in the DMV!) But that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for those temps to go down! I love fall fashion because there are endless options – especially because you can layer! Let’s talk […]
Recently, I had the immense pleasure of being a guest on The DMV Business Show, hosted by Otto Sevilla! Otto interviews successful business owners and industry leaders local to the greater DC area. And you know that includes yours truly! We had a delightful conversation. I got to share my journey, my philosophy, and my […]
If you had told me years ago that I would have a successful 13-year career traveling the world as a corporate fashion executive, I would have never believed you! But I’ve done it. Hundreds of my clients over the last 15 years have done it. And you can, too! Everything that led me here came […]
My Polished clients are all high-achieving professional women, and they don’t have the time to worry about what they’re going to wear! It can be time consuming and stressful to make that decision every day. That’s especially true if we have big events coming up, recently started a new job, or our bodies have changed. […]
My friends, I couldn’t be more excited to share this blog with you! It’s a big part of my job to stay on top of trends and always understand the direction that fashion is moving towards. So I’ve spent many hours reviewing all of the Fall 2023 fashion shows in all of the major cities […]
My friend, I am sorry to see the summer go! Are you? While I love the cozier time of year, I always feel a little sad when this season ends. I love everything about it: the trends, the activities, the weather… and while I haven’t been a student in years, there’s always that “whomp-whomp” back […]
When my clients ask how they can achieve great personal style, you might be surprised with what I tell them to avoid! Why? Well, they’re not the cliches that most women are used to hearing! (“Don’t wear white after Labor Day!” “Don’t over-accessorize!” “Don’t wear socks with sandals!”) The mistakes I tell the Polished Woman […]
My friend, we have all been in a tough spot with our closets. Sometimes we’re wishing that we had that one specific item to complete an outfit. But then sometimes we want to start over completely! And while every woman probably needs both at some point in her life, chances are that you simply need […]
“What exactly is my brand?” As an executive image consultant, I hear this question weekly from my clients at various professional levels and industries. Branding has become quite the buzz word, and even if you’re not exactly sure what a brand is, it’s clear that brands aren’t just for big businesses and designer labels! Your […]
My friend, if you’re here – my guess is that you already know what Polished is about! In here, we are all about investing in ourselves. We care about our appearances. We know that first impressions matter more than anything. And we know that what we wear should reflect what we bring to the table. […]
Believe me – I know there’s nothing worse than feeling like you can’t rise up to the occasion because of your style. Or feeling like you don’t want to leave the house because your closet isn’t updated. But you know I’m all about giving you the facts and that good boost of confidence, my friend. […]
