Monday Inspiration: Meet Jennifer from Style Your Life




Tell us about how you got into being a personal stylist?!
I have a B.S. in Fashion. I have 17 professional years of Fashion and Interiors experience. I have done everything from manage clothing stores to owning one to being a department store buyer. 

I have always loved clothing and decorating. As long as I can remember people have asked me where I get my clothes, and if I would take them shopping and help them.

So I figured why not get paid to do it? I have the BEST job in the world. It is so rewarding to help someone redo their wardrobe or home. It really has a big positive emotional impact on their life.

How do you stay on top of the fashion world?


This comes very naturally to me because I love it so much! I read a lot, go to the shows (LA Fashion week it coming up), watch TV and movies. You name it I am always watching and learning. 

Please tell us about your 5$ Virtual Outfits! I am fascinated...



Well I started this blog as a portfolio for local clients so I could show them what I do. It is very visual! Well then I started getting emails asking for help from people that didn't live near me, and this idea came to me!
Here is how it works: The virtual client pays $5 per set (through Paypal), I send them a questionnaire, then from their answers and body type lifestyle and needs I put together outfits for them from online stores! You can read all the details here.

Where do you want your business to be in a year (or 5 yrs)?
I 'd love to continue doing what I do, I truly love helping the average women look awesome! I have a couple other projects I am working on as well, but I can't let the cat out of the bag, yet. 

What are three current favorite shops you go to for fashion resources?
Anthropologie,  Target, J.Crew

Name three trends you see for the upcoming months that will hit wardrobes everywhere:
1) Wedge Sandals (since we are headed to spring summer)
2) Boyfriend Jeans will continue to be big.
3) I think leggings are going to stick around, so if you haven't already go buy them ;) 
4) Lace also started last fall but I think it is hitting mainstream fashion so everyone should  get a pretty off white lace blouse. I know that is four but I couldn't stop :)
