I thought it would be interesting to perform a colour analysis on someone famous, so i chose Jessica Szohr. She is most know for playing Vanessa on Gossip Girl. I think that she is gorgeous! She has an exotic look with olive skin, dark hair (with a red hint to it in the sun) and bright blue/green eyes. Szohr fall's into the Winter Homebase category. Winter's are lucky because they are the only ones that have jet black and pure white in there colour palette. Intense & high contrast colours such as blood red, jewel tones and many shades of purple and green work best. Yellow based colours should be avoided.
These two pictures are perfect examples of what work's best...
Green jewel tones work so well on Jessica Szohr. They look perfect against her dark complexion and make her bright blue/green eyes stand out.
Not many people can get away with wearing bright red. Jessica has the perfect skin tone for it though. It's really flattering.

I love these leather biker jackets that are in fashion at the moment. The big question is, how much should i spend on such a trend based piece? Personally i think that it is better to buy a cheaper version, that still looks expensive. Unless leather and studs are always apart of your personal style every season. It is tricky because it's a piece that may not necessarily still be in next year. Plain leather jackets are another story though. It is safe to spend more on a simple cut leather jacket in either black or tan. It is a seasonal piece that you will always be able to work in with your everyday personal style. So... it is safe to say that you should save your money and splurge on a classic piece that will last you for many years. Personally, i like the cheaper one from General Pants, rather than the more expensive Bess version. The one from General Pants looks more feminine.

If you have ever wondered what clothes you should be wearing for your body shape, what colour's suit you best or just simply how to put outfits together you could more than likely benefit from a stylist. Everyone has the potential to develop a great personal style, although it comes easier to some than to others. I think the problem with alot of women these days is getting lost in trends. There are so many different looks out there and at times fashion may become somewhat hard to follow and keep track of. There is no use wearing a certain trend if it doesn't feel right.
On a typical morning i get dressed and change into something else approximately three times.I think the worst thing is leaving the house and wishing that you had chosen a different outfit to wear.
I'm one that dresses for my mood...
The key is determining what works best for you and then working from there.
I believe that everyone can look good no matter what there size or budget is.
