"Step One: Letting Go"
I’ve said before that when life has you down it’s okay to wear something that makes you comfortable above all else. And just so you know I practice what I preach, at least when it comes to fashion.  Recently I had some personal setbacks that brought me pretty low, but at the same time I found a company that makes the most comfortable, soft, and flattering sweats that I’ve ever seen or felt.  So if tears, ice cream, and listening to sad music are in your immediate future you might as well do it right.  These tiger print, blue and white, harem pants are made from cotton so soft it’s like velvet.  Paired with a matching, equally soft, blue and white pullover. It has a draping cowl neck, and varsity style, contrasting sleeves that gives the impression of layered separates in one easy package.  I may be ready to start putting my life back together but I really hate to leave this outfit behind.  I could seriously wear this forever.  Just don’t forget that a good, reliable friend is the best accessory!

Hi everyone, it’s Harriet again. This is my first attempt at writing a fashion blog.  I’m not sure how much I know about this stuff, but Emma’s taught me a lot and I’ve read all her blog posts, so I’ll do my best.
One thing Emma is always talking about is how your clothes can make you feel better. When we took these photos the other morning, she was feeling a bit off because we’d had a big event the night before and everyone got stressed out. She said her outfit made her think of a fresh start, and a new day, and everything getting better. It kind of didn’t work out that way, at least not yet, but I can see why this look would cheer her up.
I think Emma picked this top because pink is her favorite color, and it’s comfortable because of the loose fit.  I really love the back, kind of open with crisscrossing, drape-y straps, simple and elegant.  And I think the skirt is really interesting.  It’s a short white skirt that billows and floats like a dancer’s, and it has a cool multi-color geometric pattern.  If I stand back and unfocus my eyes it kind of pops out in front of me like one of those 3D images. And then Emma has this small, studded, pink clutch that matches the top and is super light.  I guess when you have a lot on your mind, the last thing you want is a heavy purse to carry around.

Calm Before The Storm
The biggest event we’ve ever handled is only days away and all my time is spent triple checking last minute details. So in my current state of mind I choose this fitted, knee length,patterned blue dress with tulip capped sleeves. The inverted pleats above and below the waist, and the tie in the back, create an intricate origami that flatters any figure in a perfectly planned way. And it’s intricate busy-ness looks the way my hectic schedule feels. I’ve also been thinking hard about presentation and representation. Logos, color palettes, and any product you associate with become part of your public image. So I found myself drawn to this beautiful blue, almost stately, print that reminds me of the patterns on traditional club ties. Then I bring out the dashes of orange, and the complicated pattern, with a structured, coral, snakeskin handbag and intricate white, retro heels. I keep reminding myself that If I just focus, and prioritize, then everything will get done in time.
