As a stylist, I am constantly making sure my clients are outfitted with attire suitable to their needs and what I feel would look great on them and most importantly make them feel comfortable. To maximize their number of outfits without making them spend tons of money, I always suggest to them these five staple pieces that they should never go without.
Navy suit / BlazerFirst, is a navy suit. It can be worn as formally or as casually as you want it. It will allow for you to wear it to a wedding or on a night out on the town. I always suggest a navy suit over a black suit because a black suit should only be worn to black tie affairs or in a professional setting. If you don't want to go for the whole suit, a navy blazer is a nice alternative. Remember, fit is key. If the suit is fitted nicely and tailored to the nines, your confidence will be through the roof.

Today, I am going to share with you my very first VoxBox from Influenster - of you aren't signed up, you should! This is the Speed Stick Gear VoxBox. Included is two full sized sticks of deodorant one being a fresh scent and the other a clean scent. I have never used Speed Stick (Degree Clinical is my go-to). But, I gave it a try... So lets see how it went.
|Here's the box|
The Speed Stick contains a chemical called Aluminum zirconium which is a used to obstruct the pores under the arms and prevent sweating. BUT this chemical is known to cause clothing stains if worn for a long time. This one fortunately didn't from my test run. So to be on the safe side, only apply a generous amount.
|My favorite scent out of the two!|
Verdict: While this seems like a great product, I will not be switching my deodorants. If you want to try something new, give this a go.
FTC: I received these products for review from Influenster

|Michael Maccari - Creative Director of Perry Ellis|
Mr. Maccari joins the brand from Giorgio Armani SPA, where he served as the Fashion Director and Senior Vice President of Design for Armani Exchange. Maccari plans to lead the brand in a new direction - A modern take on sportswear that the modern man would wear.
“Michael’s reputation is well known,” said Oscar Feldenkreis, President and Chief Operating Officer. “He’s an experienced designer who brings a proven ability to guide lifestyle brands through their design needs. We are thrilled to have him spearheading the design team here as he interprets the legacy of Perry Ellis.”
“Perry Ellis, the man and the brand, mean a lot to me,” says Maccari. “Perry’s collections always went beyond the rules of fashion. I hope to capture that spirit in my work with the brand.”
The brand hasn't presented in two-seasons - spring 2015 will be Maccari's first collection with the brand and will debut September 2014.
I can't describe how excited I am for Perry Ellis to present at Fashion Week again. With a new creative director, I am sure there will be a fresh new look that still adheres to the original Perry Ellis brand.

Seeing as I am single as a mug this Valentine's Day, I have decided to write about a movie I recently saw, Diana. The movie discusses the captivating love story surrounding the late Princess Diana beginning two years before her untimely death. *If you do not want any spoilers please do not read this review.
Diana, starts off two years before the Princess' death. The first scene shows her standing in her hotel room, the Ritz Paris to be exact. She looks disheveled, as her former lover Hasnat Khan has not returned her call, a plea for him to take her back. Seeing as he has not answered her calls, she decides it is time for her to leave and just let him go, something she never probably did. Diana leaves the phone on the bathroom sink and walks out of the room. Diana then proceeds to walk towards the elevator and suddenly, she dramatically pauses; waiting to hear the phone ring. It never does.
From here, the movie progresses, the life of the Princess is shown in a flashback. Her quest for love, acceptance, normalcy and philanthropy. The princess wanted to have it all. This is at the time of her divorce in 1995 from Prince Charles. Prince William and Harry, Charles and Diana's sons together, split their time between Kensington Palace, and their mother's home Althorp. Based upon the films perspective, Diana was a heart broken woman. Her husband cheated on her, gained custody of her children and seemed to get away with it.
