{Consumerism}: It is a topic that I have been trying to find my place in since walking away from the advertising world as a freelance wardrobe/prop stylist. The work I was doing seemed to clash with this newly emerging, deep connection I was feeling towards living a sustainable life. I remember clearly & distinctly, looking around on set one day & having one of those moments where I realized I was an orchestrator in the madness of consumption. A key player in creating the illusion, the illusion of needing more “stuff.” This turning point left me adrift, confused & questioning my place in this corporate industrialized society in which we live. Where will this new path lead me, I will make sure to share it along the way!

I like that I am the kind of human being whose heart races when she sees images on the internet of  “The {Dressing} Room.” It inspires & stimulates my Virgo brain to see the endless ways that one can organize ones life,  to simplify & create ease in ones day-to-day living.  At times I can feel a bit overwhelmed when I  put on My Stylist’s Cap & venture out into this mad, industrialized, consuming world that we are all a part of.  You see, I really… really try to be a  thoughtful human when being a consumer of goods and in certain moments like to ask-  “Where was this made?” Who made it? What is it made of…” and then try to make the best decision possible, the lesser of all the consumer evils so to speak.  As a Personal Shopper & Stylist, I like trying to make the best decision possible when out in the market place… for my clients, the planet & our communities.

I have always had an affinity towards a Splash of {rustic} alongside a dash of {modern} in the home, especially in the kitchen area.  It makes for an environment that one can feel relaxed in, take root & hang for a while. So, when it comes to creating a charming rustic look in your home, don’t be afraid to paint your floorboards white, consider adding plate racks & open cabinetry in the kitchen and for window treatments add shutters, they are a fantastic way to add rustic flair to any country cottage! Most of all have fun collecting & designing…and if the task at hand seems a bit daunting, call in the forces for a bit of assistance {ME}!

So… here we are, only weeks away from another Summer. Time to riffle through the closet and assess, take a good hard look at what hangs in the Summer fashion trenches. Out with the old & perhaps in with the new- a few quality key pieces that add a spark of freshness to the tired, old, dress routine of Summer’s past. The question is though…”Which direction do we lean to find that inspiration?” Calling in a Shopping Expert -{ME}- just might be the answer that you are looking for. Confucius says- “Hire Me To Create Ease In Your Day-To-Day Dressing Dilemmas!”

I had the opportunity to Work/Play this weekend with a great client. Each time I go out & shop alongside a client, I always suggest a “digestion period” afterwards & then request a meeting of the minds down the road to see where we are at, with budget, our goals etc. I always enjoy this time of reflection & revel in what bubbles up to the surface. You see, I have been tuned into the sociological aspect of life ever since I can remember- “What makes people tick & how the actions of one affects the other.” So, each time I go out into my communities I have a chance to be a paid observer, to see what is out there, how it was made and observe the shopping habits of my client’s & what they are drawn to. I love using my Stylist Soap Box Wisdom out in the field because this is when I have the opportunity to witness the knowledge that I have to share -stick- and it saves them time & money!

Success can be claimed! 

I love the many creative hats that I put on & how they are supported by individuals who see value in the creativity & trust what it is that I have to share with them. I am most grateful for each opportunity.

Thank You!! xoxo

I Just Might Have To Travel To Ireland To Find That White Cable Knit That I Dream Of Finding

I Just Might Have To Travel To Ireland To Find That White Cable Knit That I Dream Of Finding

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK…so let’s see here…where were we before I missed the last two days? December, to say the least, has had its challenges but I guess it is in these moments we realize how resilient the body truly is and the depth of our will to get over life’s hurdles. At least this is what I  tell myself anyways, just getting over food poisoning, the worst cold in 10 years and an inflammation in my left foot. So, I am left here sitting  & questioning whether there is truly time for me to pull off all of the commitments that I have made Between NOW & Jan 13th. {Feeling a tad bit behind that bloody 8-ball!} When ever my mind wishes to overwhelm my spirit, it seems my thoughts always wander in the direction of something that I read many years ago & love to ponder; ” Time is an illusion, something created by man.” For some reason when these words pop into my head, I can’t explain it, but I always feel this sense of relief. Like a semi-large exhale! In certain moments I feel I completely understand the concept of, “time is an illusion,” but let’s face it, in reality it feels almost inescapable at times. When reality bites, I remind myself that I can only live one moment at a time.  Just one little moment.  I guess, my tired, sore, overwhelmed body and spirit just needs a reminder every once in awhile.

I semi-exhale and I remind myself about the things that truly matter in this life & the plate that seems like it is stacked too high, well, I decide that before the plate topples over, it might be best to take a few things off. I want to {WEAR Happy} through this holiday season.

To all of my lovely readers…Take ONE Thing Off Your Plate, Right Now!  I Give You Permission! I therefore give myself permission. My plate is being made lighter by letting go of my Monday-Friday Routine with The Blog through the holiday season.

Ahh….semi-exhale…Now, where is that To-Do List!!!

I believe that I can reach back as far as 9 or 10 years of age, with the memory of dragging furniture around my room and then stepping back & taking it all in.  I loved doing this & would work on arranging and re-arranging for hours. Visual arts are certainly in my DNA. I found out through experimentation that I was one of the lucky ones who could walk into an interior space and envision 5 different ways to design it.  {I thought everyone could do that!?}

I have always been the type of individual that once I decide to do something or create something in my work, the process of figuring out the pieces to the puzzle begin. You see there is no road map once you decide to live Your Own Creative Voice, you must possess the courage to figure it out as you go! Tread in waters of the unknown and have tremendous faith.

In 1992 I began taking those first steps into the world of interior design,  selling my creative talents as a Freelance Interior Color Consultant & Faux Painter. I have this thing that I do, I pay attention to my creative passions in this life, then become consumed with wanting to fill my day with such activities, so the next logical step is…”How can I create revenue around the things that I love doing!” So, I say; “Adjust the sails accordingly & have the courage, to take the steps necessary towards creating passion in your life’s work!”

From time to time, I like to go back through the blog and read what was written. Sometimes I read & think, “Well, that wasn’t half bad” & other times, I am completely mortified, at the typos, sentence construction or content. I gently remind myself why I chose to make a commitment to this platform of communication in the first place; To become better at writing, to articulate in an understandable fashion what I find to be inspirational in this life. A connection to & sharing of, the many art forms that continue to nourish my creative soul. So, I am brave and carry on. Who knows where it might lead us? Right!?

Casual {Tuesday} :: Draw Inspiration

I believe it is true, that the best way to conquer your fear is to face the bastard head on. Go do that which you feel you are unable & it builds strength & character, right!? Drawing is one of those things in life that I use to do for hours as a child, an activity that I remember completely loosing myself in. As I matured, I started listening to the chatter in my head, “That’s not good enough.” “It is not perfect!” Whatever I was working on at the moment, would get ripped to shreds & I would walk away feeling defeated. It was so painful in those moments that eventually it made me cease drawing all together.

In the past few years, I have found myself wanting to revisit this thing called sketching/drawing. So, I have begun to dabble, determined this time around to create an experience that will be a learning one, to break the old behavior pattern of defeat and allow myself to enjoy the creative experience! I’ve adopted a cardinal rule- “I am NOT allowed to rip anything to shreds. I must find peace with what lays on those pages!”

RITUALS :: {WEAR}  Change

9ce1f371afceac015413871b72c0dd67

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For two days now, I have felt a bit giddy. The reason being, this time of year I feel this energy in the air & it always has a cord of excitement attached to it. It always feels to me like a time filled with great change. Winter Solstice is the holiday that I create rituals around, it is the one that I have claimed to be, “My Holiday!” You see, I cherish rituals, around many things in this life. SO, it only makes sense that each Winter Solstice I make a commitment to myself to change something.

The cord of curiosity becomes sparked, followed by the commitment & discipline, then next thing you know you are on your merry little way to educating yourself on  topic. It becomes a year long experiment, to see where each conscious or unconscious step, takes you.

One year, I wanted to take certain habits out of my lifestyle {i.e. nicotine}. Take the drug away from the junkie & you learn a plethora of things about oneself. It seemed almost too uncomfortable at times. I have found a safe place to land with this nasty disgusting filthy habit.

Another year, was all about eliminating meat out of my diet. When this thought first came up as a year long commitment, I realized I had never thought about practicing a non-meat eating diet. Then I became very curious about what that kind of lifestyle would be like, to build meals with out that staple of meat. I learned much about myself & the choices that work best for me, as far as the consumption of animal products. {These I can share at a later date.}

This year, was all about plastics and from what I have observed, we as a people need to come together & create healthier life style habits & eliminate as much plastic out of our lives, as is humanely possible. We live in a convenience driven society & it is robbing us of our health & resources.  I believe, the will to change needs to begin with-in each one of our consuming lives. One+One+One… and the next thing you know great change has taken place and we are afforded the opportunity, to pass the torch to the next generation, with a little sliver of “Collective Ignorance” shaven off.

Here’s what I have found…Once you start going down some of these Winter Solstice Rabbit Holes, you feel like you can never go back. I feel like I have created positive change, not only in my life but also for the community of people around me. I find that most times, when discipline around something is practiced for a year, change happens & it ends up being change that sticks.

All I feel I can do is continue building on the day before, educating myself & implementing what I learn. So, the last two days I have been excited about…”What topic would I like to put energy towards, to create healthy positive change in 2014!!?

to be continued…..

Holiday Season :: {Grace & Aplomb}

MY HERO :: Patti Smith :: She Told Me She Liked My Pants Once

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jealous Curator :: alexandra ethell

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, as we turn ourselves straight into the belly of the beast {The Holiday Season}, I take out my survival kit from the year before. I dust it off, undo the latch, take a peak & think…how can surviving the holidays be fine-tuned from the year before? How can I respond to the inner stress of that endless To Do List differently? The stress that steers you in that direction of wanting to talk to those you love… in that certain tone! 

On Another Topic…what about that stress called {CAR}!  You know that stress cord that sparks inside you this time of year, that makes you feel as if you could  -totally loose your shit-  behind the wheel of a car! {Some may experience this symptom of stress on a chronic level.} What is our strategy in the months of Nov. & Dec., to dodge all of the stresses & come out unscathed? I find it definitely takes more effort to stay grounded & truly connected to our day when the pace starts accelerating. Am I alone here? {I Think Not! } Taking the time towards eating right & getting enough rest are also crucial, we must take care of ourselves!

I made a vow out loud to a friend on friday- “I am going to communicate, these next few months, with out feeling like I need to take gigantic breathes as I am talking!” {The Voice of An Overwhelming Nature}. To slow it down a bit & be connected to the words I am saying.  I will sail straight through The Belly of The Beast, and finish up the rest of 2013, with aplomb & grace. Yes, that’s right….I will be a ship on calm seas. One that only speaks from a tone of kindness & judges not, when she thinks. {Some days are a bit more mind over matter!}

Eating right, getting enough sleep, to be in tune with my breathing, to take judgment out of the thought process, to speak from a place of kindness….I guess, I will start with that formula this holiday season & see where it takes me. To Be Cont.

All things led me to this NYTimes article recently- Faye TooGood: A Well Composed Life, it was littered with beautiful images of her artistic talent. Faye is a designer that I had heard of over the years & knew of, only in the manner of her product design. I knew little about the actual designer, herself. I explored a bit & I have decided, that she is going to be my “new favorito.”  I felt inspired by her quirky aesthetics & what appears to be broad forward thinking, outside that conventional b o x.

Take a visit to her studio. Her Client List is exciting! I want to go work alongside her & her team {Did you hear that Faye?}.  You see I am bit curious,  what does it feel like to work alongside Vivienne Westwood!!? {I wanna’ know!} I would certainly have to remind myself to breathe while in a room with such amazing artistic talent! {Keep Breathing!!}

Womens{Wear} Wednesday :: Regurgitation vs. Style

Fall Fashion

So, we are in the midst of my favorite time of year to dress & I believe it is by far the most stylish of seasons! I get excited for all of those different layers of warmth that can be created through the use of our basic layering pieces, our statement pieces & all of the fall accessories at our disposal. {Confession- I am a scarf junkie!} To say the least, it can be a bit dizzying when trying to put all of the components of style together for a new season.

We begin by digging back into our fall/winter bag of tricks and then take steps towards the process of fine tuning our layering chops from the year before. To weed through, sift & land in a spot of putting outfits together that look & feel fresh, while keeping us warm. I grew up in Upstate New York, The Land of Cold. When I was a teen-age girl I would practice my layering, tirelessly, in front of a mirror, until I got it… Just Right!  In my opinion, the key thing to impeccable dressing this time of year, is being able to layer properly. Although it is not rocket science, this is not an easy task for most. Once the rules of layering are understood, it gives one a wider range of artistic freedom with their dress. It takes practice though, spending time with yourself to see what looks & feels right.  You see, it is easy for me to guide you towards a certain style of dress {knowledge is wisdom} but I feel it is up to you to take what I share with you & some how make it your own.  I can’t do that for you! {I wish I could.}  I am your {style-mate} that tries to keep you from  the perils of regurgitation.  For style is all about the individual, it is that unique creative voice that dwells inside all of us, wanting to use dress as a form of expression.

For most, these words sound like a daunting task & this is where I come in to your fashion rescue!  Sharing my expertise on layering techniques, being that sounding board you have always wanted! Someone to ask you, “How do you feel about that!?” or say “That sweater is not your friend, I give you permission to let it go!”  After all is said & done, I set you out on the fashion-straight & narrow & we find those key pieces that will fill in the gaps.  Are there garments missing in your fall-fashion-repetoire or perhaps you are the type that has no idea what you are missing? I am here to help & this is where you can find me- allison@allisonjonesdesign.com.

I have been working with a client who found me on the internet. I was hired on by Client #2171, to assist her in cleaning out her closet & to work alongside her to reach her goal. The goal of finding stylish clothing with the proper fit. I adore her {she gets “it!”} She listens &  learns from what I say and is applying it to her life. {Listen, Learn & Apply!} She has great fashion sense and has that sparkle & twinkle of  Style! I can tell the only thing that will be needed is a slight nudge & a push of the fashion envelope & she will be a full blown “Stylista,” in no time!

Each client that I have the opportunity to work with teaches me things about life & human nature. The reasons behind; Why we shop, why we think & feel the way we do about our bodies, what drives us as a consumer, human attachment to materialistic objects and the list goes on & on.  Each one of you gives me the opportunity to get up to bat, swing and find a greater understanding of what makes us tick as consumers! {I say, Thank you! I love what I do!} Part of my craft is teaching individuals how to shop consciously & not waste hard earned money, time & resources. I take my clients on a journey, to move past this thing called Fashion & start moving toward this thing called STYLE!  I come home & mention my day, to My-Lovely-Side-Kick & he says; “You sound like a clothing shrink!?” I guess, in some ways I am. I know from experience, that what gets talked about during a 3 hour closet renovation, is not always “just about the clothes!” But don’t you worrry your pretty little head off, this business platform moves from a certain code of ethics, where one never spills the beans. Zipped Lips! {A stylish zipper, of course!}

Well,  this is the first post since Oct. 22nd. On the 23rd I was unable to log into the admin page or have the blog load. Next day…same thing. The day after that, the same. You see, I hardly {ever-never} have the mental power to deal with technology.  When it is not operating at its optimum, I usually end up just walking away.  {Which I did.} Checking in from time to time {nothing}. When this contraption doesn’t do what it is suppose to do, I feel this cord of restlessness and find myself having to dig a bit deeper to find that place of patience. You see, I realized through this whole 3 week experience…that I am not a techie, nor will I ever be a techie & it is a language that I have absolutely no interest in learning. {Good things to know about oneself}. When it is working properly, I am as happy as a lark! I get to  cruise around, wander & see the many visual, virtual ways to be inspired. The right arm that felt like it was missing for a few weeks has been sewn back on. It feels grand! I talk to the gods & say; “In My Next Life, No Technology Please!”

Let’s see where this experiment take us {again}…

OK…so, I guess it feels like it is officially Fall, the cottage is freezing at 4:30 a.m.{ couldn’t sleep}. The plentiful blaze of color on the trees this past week is the dead give away that Summer has passed, Fall is here & Winter is just round the bend.  Some of us are still in denial, {me}, I have yet to pull out any of my Winter {Wears} from downstairs. Which has me thinking…”What ever is going to be my Uniform for the Fall of 2013?” I’ll be honest, it has been so long since I shopped for myself, that I would not know where to begin?  The last thing I want to do sometimes is shop for {myself} but I feel the need for a bit of tidying up over here. Going through, tossing out and finding my SAUCY again. I think it is on a shelf in the back corner of my closet?? I know one thing that has been missing in this life is {yoga}. I need to really feel my body, I miss it! – S T R E T C H ! On that pretty note, I am out of here at 6:06 a.m. Top of the day to ya’!

OK…Let’s talk Cable Knit for a little minute. I have been obsessed for 2 yrs. now in scoring that perfect cable knit sweater. You know the one…the one that looks like the knitter was channeling their Irish Grandma. That almost men’s size cut that you just toss on with a few layers for warmth underneath, a pair of black leggings, motorcycle boots & you can almost call it good!  Almost Good…. because you haven’t accessorized yet! Toss on a stylish cap {Dayna Pinkham}, big bulky scarf, fingerless gloves….and man, you are good to go! One of those no-brainer outfits that you go to and put on and just know you look & feel great!  Anyways, back to the cable knit; I have had in my { fashion-mind’s-eye} for 2 years… a thick, roomy cut, “white” cable knit sweater. I have been witness to several from $400.00 to $40.00, they just haven’t been  the perfect one!  I have adopted this shopping mantra lately-  “Let’s Score This Piece At The Consignment Shop For $80 Bucks!” I’ll keep you posted.  This woman is on fire & determined this year!

Love This Artists Work :: Must Track Down Who It Is

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, this morning I was miling about in cyber space & a thread led me to Lisa Congdon’s Blog. {again}  There I saw;  “My Art Was Stolen for Profit (and How You Can Help).” It got me thinking, about this word that keeps coming my way lately- originality. Originality- the ability to think independently and creatively. I thought of Orginality in relationship to Cody Foster.  It wasn’t the first time I had seen their name mentioned & in not such great light.

In my opinion, Cody Foster is {UN}original, {UN}imaginative, for the only formula they can come up with to make money is to “steal” from other business people {Artists}. The Globe buys their mass produced crap and supports their crude business ethics- {willingly} or from a place of not knowing.  Ignorance. {I use this word from a place of love. I too, am ignorant & put forth constant effort towards learning!}  Educate Yourself.  Begin having deeper relationships with the things you own…”otherwise they start owning you!” Senseless buying has been proven to reek havoc on The Earth. I say; Put Strong Limits On Buying Mass Produced Crap!!  Be An Original! Keep your money with-in a certain radius of where you live, this creates communities. Most everything does not need to be acquired on-line.  I don’t know, these are ideas that I think about often. Each day I {try} to build on the day before, to create a life{style} that has meaning. One that has a foundation of sustainability. Lasting Power. I am all for that! Aren’t YOU!?

This morning I booked my first art show for the month of November. As I have mentioned before,  after a year of meeting myself self each day at the art table to make collage/assemblage work & feed my paper addiction…I finally have enough pieces to hang 2 shows.  I went and looked at the space this morning where it will hang for a month & my creative mind started {styling} & arranging how I was going to hang the show. These thoughts led me to the place of how I am just A Stylist. Period. End of sentence. A stylist of many things- From hanging my own art work, to hanging 34 pieces of art for a client last week in her home. To creating interior & commercial spaces, to styling out private residences & shopping for home furnishments. {phew} We haven’t even made it to the clothes, your closet & how I love creating wardrobes that work & make sense. One that makes YOU look & feel like a million bucks.

I get in there & stomp around in the {style} trenches & have success making- “a visually appealing, easy flowing, pretty life,” for my clients & myself. I {Wear} many different hats these days & I could not be happier.  Today’s Dress :: {WEAR} Art Clothes. Grey leggings, an oversized men’s white button down with paint splatters, a black wool unity scarf & under the knee, Army Green, front lace Wellington’s.

I am off to the trenches, with Wellington’s laced, to figure out the details of this life. Magic Is In The Air! Fall truly has magic in it.

It’s Monday :: The Things We {ASK} Ourselves

tumblr_mf33htUIo71r9reudo1_500

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These questions stumbled my way this morning on the internet & it is something that I continually revisit in my life; ” If you could have anything, time and money aside, what would it be? What did you dream of when you were younger? Could you make that happen now?” As you know, two years ago I embarked on a different path, one of finding my own creative voice.  I had asked myself those very questions after being stuck in a profession that was highly stressful & no longer fulfilling. {YOU know the feeling!} It led me to a place of … “Try Collage Art!” {Among other things.}  As a young girl I made collage art endlessly. I found myself eager to explore, to test the waters to see if this was something that could re-ignite my creative soul. I made a pact with myself last year to show up each day at my design table & do something, anything. After a years time of dedication, I have created a rather nice body of work and  have nourished my creative spirit in the process. I finally have enough pieces to do a show, only a few more tweaks and things to finish up  & soon I will peddle my wares to see who finds them worthy to hang. So, today I encourage you to {WEAR} a questioning mind & always keep perseverance by your creative side!

Wander in this direction, this blog is where it all began {Again} for me today!

Creating harmonious spaces is a challenge for most {Not Me!}  & for some of us it just seems to come naturally. It is as if we were born with a certain gene that others were not. {We all have our strong points!} I remember in my 20’s in NYC someone saying to me, “You are fortunate to be able to walk into a space and visualize 20 different ways to arrange it with flair.” I thought everyone had this god-given gift. On friday’s when I post House{WEARS},  I try to impart some of the wisdom that I have learned along the way. I hope that you find it helpful!

Design Tips For Well Designed Interior Spaces :: {#1} Function follows form in this case. Have a good grasp on what you wish to use the space for & then design accordingly. This will make the execution of your dream space into a reality much easier {#2} Next ask yourself how you want the room to feel. There are a few key elements that aid in the over-all feeling of a space. Color, in my opinion is the most important element, along with lighting & furniture arrangement. These are all important planning considerations when designing your space. {More on these last three next week!}

Call in a professional, if you are overwhelmed with all of the options. I can help make sense out of the chaos! {allison@allisonjonesdesign.com}

Much to say but little time to collect my thoughts this week. Life has unfolded this way…the death of one of my influential guru’s, a family member’s passing & the celebration of a father’s birthday who recently passed away last year.  We take these happenings in stride & move forward with as much grace & courage as we are able. Death does not scare me & when it happens around me, I feel it is time to celebrate. To celebrate the life of a person{s} who has touched your spirit in ways that are deep & profound. I bow & say from a place of gratitude…“Thank you!” Your spirits in this life are missed.

Ok…so, earlier in the week, I stumbled across this article & I found it to be FRESH!  Fresh in the sense that I have never thought of interior design as story-telling.  It totally makes sense, our homes are a story of our lives. As is the co-op grocery store were we buy our {Fresh} farm-to-table produce, right up to the independent boutiques that we shop at to support our local economies.  The structures that surround our lives are aspiring & inspiring, one’s that completely tell a story. What kind of story does your life tell!?

SO, the links at the end of this blurb got me thinking the other day…”At this stage in the work-game, what would my Ideal work-life look like !!?” For the past two years, I have been on a QUEST to add a feeling of excitement back to my work-day. I had arrived at that dreaded place where the cogs of the work-wheel,  “Just Turned!” {with very little excitement!} Something inside me just kept saying…”Find your own creative voice!” So, today I  step back & ask myself, “What would a woman {WEAR} that had found that creative voice & excitement again!?” Well, she would be dressed a little somethin’ like this;  I love being in my art clothes covered in paint & gel mediums, playing with paper… So, I am currently tailoring a life towards being in my “PLAY Clothes, ” {A LOT!} In the other part of this work-life, I am wearing  “SMART Clothes! ” {More on this STYLE later!} Here, I am dressed to do marketing & sales of my own creativity, creating a stir around two abstract artists & styling a world for YOU to live in!  After all of that is done on any given day, the remaining hours are designed to look like this…spending quality time with friends & family! {I advise reverting back to wearing “Play Clothes” here!! } Not A Bad Life, eh!?  It is a WIN-WIN for all! 

Here are those links… read this one & read that one. Gets a woman thinking now, doesn’t it!?

"I Feel Like  Just Another Number!"

“I Feel Like Just Another Number!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This weeks posts are inspirationally anchored in, “What Ever Strikes My Fancy!”  Today’s first select is that blue that needs to be in everyone’s home somewhere, anywhere. The second image has interest, for it made my thoughts wander in the direction of, “Conscious Consumerism.” Which is a favorite topic of mine around these parts. Perhaps more on this topic on thursday or maybe not- “I’m flying By The Seat Of My Pants This Week!”   It is a dash- in, dash-out… kind-of week for me. EEKS!

You know those days when you are tapping away on “this contraption” & all of a sudden you have landed on a link to a site & you have absolutely no idea how you got there? That’s what happened when I found The Vintaquarian {Link Below}. The over-all aesthetic was something very familiar & comfortable to me. A mix of this, a mix of that, the sum of the pieces that make up a home. Nothing show-roomy about its feel, eclectic, individual style. It takes more talent to pull this design aesthetic together than it does walking into a “Big Box” design store & purchasing all the pieces pulled together for the show room sample.  Don’t want to look like the big guys & everyone else on your block- pull {ME} in & I can create the magic. You won’t be disappointed & you will be the envy of all who enter through that front door of yours!

I PROMISE!

This morning I woke up & the air had a chill in it, you know…that chill that taps you gently on the shoulder and says ” Hey, that change of season is slowly happening.”  As I was cruising around looking at the images I had gathered  for you, I realized that even though I should begin posting for Fall, I am not QUITE ready to let Summer go yet….so one more blast of a few of my Summer favorites- Nautical Stripes & Summer Whites.

Birthdays & The {Secret} To Staying Youthful

17058163-vintage-retro-happy-birthday-card-with-fonts-grunge-frame-and-chevrons-seamless-background

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today is the day of my birth & the number seems to make some people squirm and others curious as to my feelings regarding this so-called “Monumental Birthday.” As I was telling a friend the other day when she asked how I felt about it, my answer was this;  ” When I was 17 I read the book “The Power of Positive Thinking” & in it I stumbled across this wisdom that has stuck with me ever since.  “Age Is Not A Matter of Years but A Matter Of Outlook!”  Age in a linear sense is just a number, 47, 48, 49 & many individuals get dragged down by this reality. With a sense of dread, the number begins to chisel away at ones life year after year & accelerates the impending truth that we will all face sooner or later. Bukowski said it best- ” You can’t beat death but you can beat death in life sometimes.”  I choose this;. I choose to have a good outlook while living this life & try each day to feel tremendously alive. Most days I can claim victory, others fall short. But here is the deal…we have to at-least try. Over & over & over again.

So, My Lovelies…The core of each of our spirits is ageless & always youthful. Keep polishing that spirit of yours every year & you carry with you the secret to staying forever young. You then have with you, the capacity to experience life with a certain  vibrancy & vitality, that others see & are drawn to. Then you, too, will be asked, “So, what is your secret!”

I am off to eat cake, lots of chocolate cake! For My 50th Birthday!!

Casual {Tuesday} :: Blogging Thing Part II

tumblr_mp8l7gkTOS1qzxf07o1_1280

Yesterday I shared this with you & today we will finish things up, as to -Why Am I Doing This {Blogging} Thing Anyways;

3rd ::  I have been on the quest for the past two years to find MY OWN CREATIVE VOICE.  Creativity that is not dictated by clients, art directors, photographers & you name it. Creation that comes from my own place of truth, a place where I loose track of time & life is no longer a linear experience. My poor burned out soul was yearning for it. When I started on the path I had no idea what this creative voice looked like or sounded like. I am slowly beginning to see it, hear it, & feel it in a way that I never have before. The discipline around doing the blog gives me the space to explore my own creative freedom & to see what all of you are up to. The opportunity for us to explore endless paths of inspiration together. It is really exciting.

4th ::  I wanted to refine my writing chops. It is an art form I believe I could become decent at and it takes practice. Lots of practice! So, between my time spent here and a few writing workshops, we will see what kind of magic I can make happen through the use of the written word. I have a long ways to go but we all start somewhere & I have the courage at this point in the game, to just put it out there. What do I have to loose, right?

So, this is it for today but down the blogging road I will share a few more treasures that have unfolded from creating a daily discipline with “What Would Allison Want Me To Wear! ” Today I say-  Wear A Smile & A Happy Heart!!!

Why Am I  Doing This {Blogging} Thing Anyways

This Image Is Trippy & Kool

This Image Is Trippy & Kool

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last Thursday I got to thinking- “Why am I doing this blogging thing, anyways?” I do truly believe that those cherished moments in life happen Off-Line! So, why did I decide this past May to start posting something daily, Monday through Friday. There are a number of reasons why I made such a decision;

1st :: This platform of communication gives us a place to land together, where we can share in the inspiration of the many things that are floating about on the internet. I love fashion. It is a passion that continues to ignite my soul, even after decades of being immersed in it. I love what I do, styling individuals and their homes. Each opportunity that I have to share the knowledge that I have gained over the years from being a stylist, provides the means to create a positive impact in someone’s life. Trust me, I feel honored & grateful for each & every one of you that takes the time to see what I have to share with the world.  You are valued here! Oh & for those of you who have never read my Declaration, I suggest you do so now!

2nd :: Discipline. I am kind-of a discipline junkie. I felt that creating a discipline around the blog  & being dedicated to daily postings, Monday-thru-Friday, would be beneficial. It would assist me in developing Step #3 & Step #4. Which I will be sharing with you tomorrow on Casual {Tuesday}. I don’t like to make my blog posts too long-winded. I assume you are like me… you like to get in & get the heck out!? See you tomorrow for Part Two!

Diane Von Furstenberg & Anna Wintour have been so-called “fashion bed fellows” driving the trends of the apparel industry for decades. I always follow DVF, I find many of her garments to be wearable and at the same time fashion forward. Her design aesthetic falls right in step with my creed for personal shopping – “Quality Over Quantity & The Art of Creating A  Self -Contained Wardrobe.

DVF’s Spring Collection was called Oasis- ” An ode to inner beauty, the collection encouraged women to be their own oasis. In graphic black and white prints with pops of red, flowing chiffon, and jet-set ready tunics. Part desert oasis, part safari, and part jungle adventure, think chic, effortless silhouettes that are up for any of the above. As Diane described it, “You can fit all 38 pieces in your petite valise and hop on a plane to Paris or anywhere.” {Her clothes are easy, one of the many things I have always loved about her design work! Keep It Up Diane! The Fashion World Needs You!} Note To Self :: I should research how the companies clothes are manufactured.

I continue to {RE}Learn that it takes effort, energy & discipline to be healthy, in mind & body. At times it feels like it takes a tremendous amount of energy to keep showing up for the type of lifestyle I have chosen, the life of making the right choices that lead me to experiencing vibrancy & vitality in my day to day. To stay committed to a practice of eating the right foods, yoga, meditation, finding time for community, working, playing & the list goes on. So, when I am feeling a bit off-centered & weary… I just step back and dive deep into a good dose of solitude to {RE}Charge my spirit.  Think about it…What is it that you do to {RE}Boot that spirit of yours? If you can not remember, chances are it is time for you to come up with a plan! {More on this topic down the road.}  Happy {Quiet} Monday Everyone!

Look {Learn} & Apply ::  I used to have collections in every corner of my home but you know the cardinal rule that I live by because I shared it with you here. So, keeping this in mind, here are a few additional rules to consider when creating “Organized Clutter. ” Rule #1 :: “Think containers.” Since I like to {Recycle & Re-Use} & keep as much plastic out of my life as possible, I scour vintage & second hand stores for interesting pieces to store items in.  This creates efficiency when needing to find things that get used for a particular task, such as art supplies, sundries, office staples etc. It also, allows you to be creative & carve out spaces that have visual appeal with how the containers look & the manner in which they are arranged.  Rule #2 :: Make sure everything has a place to live, a home. As a Virgo, I organize “like” things together, it seems to make the most sense for me & creates ease when trying to find things.

Now..Refer Back To “My Cardinal Rule,” Rule #1- “Think containers” and when organizing those containers remember to place “like” things together.  {Is It All Starting To Make A Bit More Sense?} So, there is the wisdom I wish to share with you today to get you going & if you need to call in the forces to help you make sense of your living spaces…well, I am The Queen of Organized Clutter &  The Options Lady- Contact Me- allison@allisonjonesdesign.com. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

As a young girl, in a very small town in Upstate New York, fashion magazines provided the inspiration & a gateway to a much larger world than the one that existed around me. I would study & scrutinize my fashion magazines, tear out & pin to the wall the pictures that made my heart race & pour over these pages like they were gold. It is how I learned about fashion, flipping through those pages & this blog is a chronicle of the images that I stumble upon on the internet, that light the fashion spark & keep me inspired. It could be observing something as simple as how a models arm candy is stacked, the way a garment gets tucked in or the particular footwear that gets paired with the length of a hem. I have always turned to “Those Frenchies” for inspiration…to Look {Learn} & Apply & then add to my fashion sense.  The Buddhists say- “To Be Able To Observe Is Wisdom.”  So…Let’s All Be WISE Fashionistas together!? Shall We!? If you are interested in a consultation on “How To Pull It All Together” from your tear sheets…give me a ring {971.212.6447} …I would love to help! {Oh & next week…I will share with you another french line of clothng that I think you will love!} Toodles!

The above image is what we have to aspire to Ladies. I mean, really, I feel like I just get better & better as I age. I wouldn’t trade my age now, in for my 20’s, if my life depended on it. There is a certain something that comes from living a textured life, that makes a person an individual. I have been saying this quote since reading it at age 17- “Age is not a matter of years, it is a matter of outlook.” The quality of ones life is a matter of perspective {outlook} & a deep connection to ones spirit. I believe that this is what keeps one looking youthful {& Stylish!}

Things like moving after 10 years, getting settled in a new city, a hand injury that needed to heal, some health issues & next thing you know you are reflecting on a whole YEAR. {GOD- how did that happen!?} The solitude afforded me the opportunity to observe that I had a bit of that  “EgoThing” attached to my practice. I arrived at the conclusion that when the time comes to get my certification, that i do not want any “extra’s” attached to the teachings. I will teach yoga as a healing art & not some westernized athletic sport where the guru’s get showered in press & attitude. I am not judging; to each their own & what ever works for you but I am realizing that it is not my scene. I have this quote on my refrigerator & it has been there all year reminding me- “Yoga is the practice of tolerating the consequences of being ourselves.” Thank you solitude for affording me greater insight into how this woman ticks, good-bye “Ego Thing” & hello to the inner Yoga Junkie{AGAIN}.   {I’ll keep you posted on the progress! Perhaps we can help motivate & inspire one another along the way!! wink wink}

today everything is being typed in lower case {except for Jane’s name, out of respect}….let’s see if i can make sense of my thoughts. i have not been well for sometime. i have tried to figure it out but to no avail. it feels like intestinal issues but then i am not a trained physician.  i recently made a visit over to my natural-path who put me on high levels of probiotics, a liver supplement, artic cod liver oil {yuck!} & apple cider vinegar before each meal {double yuck!}. i was then instructed to write down everything that goes into {& out} of my body for the next 3 weeks until my next appointment. we are into week 3 and week 2 about kicked my ass. i hold faith that what i am doing is ridding my body of all that it should not be hosting. that i will once again feel the vitality that life offers up because I am not feeling it lately. which is a very strange feeling for me….

me feeling the way that i am feeling, it only seemed likely that i would stumble across an article about a woman who wrote her own obituary. the woman above was a seattle-based author and editor, by the name of Jane Catherine Lotter. i read the huffington post article & it sparked something in me, along with some tears. the things that stuck were the way she defined her success, thanking  mrs. senour her 1st grade teacher for teaching her how to read, bobby m. i love you up to the sky… along with, may you every day connect with the brilliancy of your own spirit & last, but certainly not least, the words that resonate the most for me, “may you always remember that obstacles in the path are not obstacles, they ARE the path.”  for this is what i am learning lately, so, i thank Jane Catherine Lotter for imparting her wisdom because guess what, those words stuck in this woman’s life. may we all {WEAR} courage and practice grace & kindness when the maker comes knocking on our door to say, “hey, it is time. i am taking you with me.” i know for a fact after reading this article, that i will not trust the pen to another hand, to write the obituary of this woman’s life. there is no one who could articulate the nuances and delicacies of this life quite in the same manner as i could. how could they, for i am the only one who has lived it!!  i tip my head to the heaven’s & say from the heart- thank you for the inspiration Jane.

** stay tuned for a new page of 365 daily posting called “things that I am learning.” it kicks-off september 18th, 2013- the day of my birth. a practice & daily ritual for a year, that i give to myself & in turn, share with you. happy day!

The design teams aesthetic is Clean {Fresh} & Simple with an uncluttered, breathable feeling to the spaces they create. This resonates for me, for I will share with you my cardinal rule that keeps my home stream lined & uncluttered, ” Before I buy something new & bring it into the home, I MUST GET RID OF SOMETHING!” It works, trust me. Take it out on a test spin for a year & see what kind of breathing room you can create in your environments. If you need help making sense of the clutter you already have, this is where I come in …To help organize & work alongside you to create that sanctuary, in the spaces, you call home. {Phew…Gotta Go! }

How many people do you know that can be dragged by the media wolves for a cocaine scandal and end up making more revenue after the outing, than before!  Right on Kate, keep it up! Oh & if you need an extra dose of Kate imagery, take a stroll over here or in this direction.

How To Wear A {Smart} Looking Hat 101

TIPS :: {This Is What I Have Learned}- {1}When selecting a brim hat, make sure the scale of the brim is in proportion to your face & body {2} Style your hat by leaving bangs or wisps of hair showing, this will create a soft, feminine look {3} The hat is an accessory that demands attention when worn. Keep the rest of the ensemble simple & clean {4} “A hat should Compliment an outfit & Never save it.”

As a little girl, this style is how I remember the White House looking in pictures when Jackie O. was First Lady. She worked alongside the design duo of  Sister Parish & Albert Hadley, whose aesthetic I have long been a fan of over the years. That larger than life,  old school New England, over the top chintz, that you can’t help but admire, Right?

This weeks “Blog Crush” is aligned with Dust Jacket Attic, it is a return crush for me. I tend to weave in & out of crush land with certain blogs and this one seems to be a class favorite.  The “about” reads- ” Welcome to DustJacket … a place that I can share with you all that inspires me, photography, fashion, interior design, delicious food & dreamy travel destinations xx Debra.” So, it has a little bit of all the right things that I turn to for inspiration on a daily basis…take a wander & see for yourself.

Womenswear {Wednesday} :: Getting Dressed

Look {LEARN} Apply

This weeks theme is Look {LEARN} & Apply. I know I have said this before & I say this often to individuals who feel challenged by what hangs in their closets.  One way to cultivate & develop your own personal style is look around you and observe what looks good on other people.  Purchase some of your favorite fashion magazines, watch television for trends and styles that catch your eye or visit a place with alot of foot traffic, such as a coffee shop. Nestle in, sit back, then LOOK & {LEARN}, observe what people are wearing and take note of the fashions you like. If you still find getting dressed in the morning a challenge or are having a difficult time finding inspiration-  Ask For Help!  Find a personal shopper whose style that you admire and ask him or her to work alongside you to iron out those fashion kinks. If money is on the tight side, visit a department store or boutique that carries fashions you like and ask a salesperson to help you assemble a stylish look that’s right for you.

Above all else, once you find “that look-” Be Yourself! The most important thing about where you land with all of your Looking {LEARNING} & Applying, is that your new look makes you feel great.  After-all, creating a personal style is really about tapping into that essence that is YOU, sometimes you just need a trained, professional style master to get you on track!  Contact Me, I Would Love To Help- allison@allisonjonesdesign.com

There was an inevitability to Banksy’s invasion into Los Angeles with the show “Barely Legal” in September 2006. “Hollywood,” he once said, “is a town where they honor their heroes by writing their names on the pavement to be walked on by fat people and peed on by dogs. It seemed like a great place to come and be ambitious.” I ask- How can you NOT love a man who has such wit!? The exhibition centerpiece was an 8,000-pound live elephant, slathered in red paint and overlaid with a fleur-de-lis pattern.  Fliers distributed to the glittering crowd made the point that “There’s an elephant in the room…20 billion people live below the poverty line.”

Once he told the New Yorker by e-mail: “I give away thousands of paintings for free. I don’t think it’s possible to make art about world poverty and trouser all the cash.” On his website, he provides high-resolution images of his work for free downloading. I love his mind, humor, wit and artistic sensibility! Don’t you?

I have a new Blog Crush! This week has just been full of them & as time unfolds they will be shared.  This week I have fallen smitten to a wonderful blog by the name of 79 ideas…take the time & wander in that direction, I trust that you will not be disappointed.  After-all this is what Radostina Boseva has to say about her inter-web world- ” Every day I see so many pretty things on the Internet – interiors, art, fashion, styling, decoration … so I’ve decided to create “79 ideas” as a place to collect all these lovely things which I discover. And that’s why one day after many many years my blog will be the most beautiful blog in the world :)” From the pictures above, she just might be right about that statement….she is certainly someone to keep on your radar for inspiration from time to time.

Accent Colors & Placement 101

Here Is What I Know From Experience ::  Accent walls are used to enhance the overall appearance of an interior space.  They add a focal point of interest & excitiment to a room. It is best to pick a wall that has an  architectural element of interest like a fireplace or one with a fantastic view. Creating this area of distiction will create the focal point to draw the viewer in.  A PERK :: Accent walls do not require a tremendous amount of work  in the execution, so many homeowners opt for this inexpensive design element to add spark to an already existing interior.  HOW TO PROCEED :: Play off the color pallete that you have already established & choose an accent color that will compliment your flooring & furninshing. Stuck on which direction to go for a color to place on that accent wall- pull in a professional. { allison@allsionjonesdesign.com }

Wearing one color head to toe was a big trend on the  spring runways  and even spilled over into fall 2013. Monochromatic dressing in all-white, black, navy, camel or grey is the easiest route to go and be leery of putting together any wilder color combinations, for they can be tricky. Monochromatic styling can create a sleeker, slimmer look, one color in multiple shades  is both elegant and classy. Add a little splash of this or that through your accessories, Et Voila….You are good to go!

I recently watched {Exit Through The Gift Shop}, a highly recommended flick on Street Art by Banksy. I miss those days milling about NYC & San Francisco and being inspired at {almost} every turn by the street artists there. In the North West, the cities are not amiable to Street Art, they cover it up before it even has a chance to dry. SO, I take it where I can living here; through movies, art books & travel…and the occasional passing train that has that punch of POW that brings me back. Today I feature- Shepard Fairey’s  work, it is political & inspiring! For those of you who don’t {think} you know his workyou more than likely do. One could not escape this image, for it was every where in NYC when I lived there in 1989! Happy Tuesday Everyone!

What I Read :: “Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism.” So, this said…yellow would be great used in an office space, for it may help you get S#%@ done & apply its use in other areas of the home such as the kitchen, gym or dining room. It sounds like it may help burn calories!? Can someone put this to a test & get back to me please! {allison@allisonjonesdesign.com} What I Know :: The Damask Gold that graced the walls & front door of the old farm house that I lived in for years, was the most amazing color to come home to! Bright, cheerful & vibrant…it made me feel happiness each time I arrived at that place I called home! What You Should Do ::  The world of color selection can be VERY overwhelming! I’ve seen the strongest of people crumble into dust when trying to select the right color for the interior of their homes. Bring in a professional, someone who can be your sounding board in the process, who is familiar with how color and lighting interact with your space & furnishings. After all, don’t you want to land on just the RIGHT shade. This woman knows the person you should contact…ME!

Tips From The {MASTER} Packer

I am the woman who traipsed across Europe {& then back again} for 3 1/2 months with a small back pack. Yes, I consider myself a master at packing & you know you want to learn how to travel light!! Right!? Pay Close Attention!  Here we go- a few tips to get you started- Outfits- Think about the number of outfits you need & subtract one. You still won’t wear everything you pack ::  Shoes- Pack rolled socks into your shoes (saves space, keeps shoes shaped). Separate shoes in bags and line them along the sides of the suitcase :: Accessorize- Unless you know you are going to be causal, pack something small that can make any outfit smarter. You never know when you’ll need to look sharp & leave pricey jewelry at home. Just Remember- “Less Is More!”  This sage advice can be found on this site .  It aligned with my packing aesthetic & I could not have said it better myself, so, I had to share.  If you are in need of a guru to assist you with packing wisely for those trips this Summer….look me up- allison@allisonjonesdesign.com

The Style Rut :: Spinning The {Style} Wheels 

A few things to consider when we get to that stagnant place in life, where we find ourselves just going through the motions,  wearing the same ‘ole thing over & over.

This is how I get myself out of emotional ruts –  TRY NEW THINGS – and I would bet that it could be applied to fashion ruts as well. Venture out and move in a different direction, go people watching in a section of a city that you don’t frequent often, pick up cues from what the passerby’s are wearing. LOOK, LEARN & APPLY! Doing the same things over & over again may make one proficient but it is healthy & refreshing to mix it up a bit. Be brave & wear that “look” you have always wanted.   Try many things and find what works for you. Here are some words to live by- “When was the last time you tried something for the first time?” Always seek higher mountains for a brand new perspective of the world at large. Climb to new fashion heights- What Do You Have To Loose?

Christy Turlington’s Take On Beauty ::

#1 Yoga – “I have been practicing yoga for nearly twenty years and nothing makes me feel as centered as this mental, spiritual and physical practice.”

#2 Juice Cleanse- “I like to do seasonal juice cleanses to give my digestive system a break after a long winter and especially at the end of summer.”

#3 Strength- “Beauty is so much more than what’s physical. Strength is beautiful to me. When I see a woman that’s empowered, she has a radiance and self-possession that every woman should be lucky enough to have.”

Harmony In The {Artistic} Process

Cezanne stated, “When paintings are done right, harmony appears by itself. The more numerous and varied they are, the more the effect is obtained and agreeable to the eye.” The same goes for the spaces that we arrange & edit, to be creative in. A pleasing arrangement of certain elements or parts, helps in creating the whole. As in the creation of a painting, all the paints, lines & colors seem to work together effortlessly & in a pleasing order. We step back and assess & feel it in our souls when it is right! In this moment it is a knowing that the time has come to let go, put down the brush, walk away & feel joy that our creation is DONE!  Our spaces are created in much the same manner, no need to over analyze, just move with what the spaces is telling you & if you need assistance…well, you know where to find me. Happy Creating!!

All messed up with the Up Do :: Nothing says Summer like an “Up Do!”  Those who know me, know that I have had a short cropped hair style since 1989. I followed step alongside Linda Evangalista when she got her mane chopped off & made it all the rage to have a saucy short hair style. I keep asking those I trust if I need a make-over! You know like those women, where they pop up encapsulated in a tube on that Reality TV show & get judged ruthlessly by strangers!  Judged because they are  still dressed in the same garb, wearing the same hair styles that were hot in the 80’s but maybe not so hot now! My friends assure me that this is not the case, I have to trust them, right?  Anyways, I dream of long hair at times…hair long enough to wear a messy Up Do or an impeccable twist on my head like Audrey from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. These are just daydreams for this woman, for I neither have the time or the patience to make that happen. So, I will live vicariously through these images…at least for today! Here is a toast to the mess of it all & for you with the long locks, may it be an inspiration to try something a little new & shall we say…MESSY!

Let’s ponder the day MONDAY, shall we? This day means different things to different people, to me this day is the same as TGIF and the rest of the week. A day is a day… is a day… is a day. I just try to marvel in each delicious second, that any given moment has to offer. The moments that make up the minutes, that add up the hours, that “X” that day off  from the calendar of our lives.  Approaching each moment with a level of dedication in trying to NEVER take it for granted!  So, as we drag our asses out of bed from a place of tiredness or for some, who just lay there with dread….that it is a Monday…remember the DELICIOUS side of life! If your life doesn’t make you want to SPRING out of bed with enthusiasm most days, then CREATE one that does.  It is as simple as that & it is all up to YOU! What are you gonna do when Tuesday rolls around!?

The Glow & Punch of {Summer}

Let’s Talk...about make-up just for a moment, shall we!  I am by no means an expert in this field, but I am graced by many who are! I wanted to share with you two tips that were shared with me recently to liven up my Summer look.  A bright lip is a no-brainer for most of us, even transitioning our makeup from Fall into Summer. If it is too hot to wear full makeup, wearing only a bright lip color can still make you look polished and pulled together. I am a huge fan of this all year long,  I believe that it looks chic & sophisticated!

The Experts say- “Wear a brighter cheek color to look healthy during the Summer months.”  As skin tones darken, blush colors should get brighter not deeper.  Another secret- Opting to pop a vibrant hue of powder or cream blush onto the apples of the cheeks to bring out a glowing tan, can add a healthy flush to the face.  How’s that for a few tips? Whenever in doubt hit up the cosmetics professionals at your favorite make-up counter Or contact me & I can steer you in the proper direction! Happy Glow Of Summer Everyone….

When we talk about modern day contemporary, interior design, most think of  the restrained use of  color.  Modern designers have always embraced what is referred to as pure color- blacks, whites and neutral color palettes {We have used the many shades of grey here, as an example}. Those neutral color palettes when paired alongside vibrant, bold contrasting colors such as crimson reds, sea life greens & bittersweet oranges- take on a whole new color story. The use of these accent colors can be used as a splash with your home furnishing or on a wall to create an interesting architectural backdrop.

** The Color Grey – “A neutral or achromatic color, meaning literally a color “without color.”  It is the color of a cloud-covered sky, of ash and of lead.”  I just loved that description on Wikipedia. SO, I had to share

Don’t Fear {Sheer} 

Many Fear Sheer… for obvious reasons, they can be tricky to wear. We have seen this sexy, feminine garment worn many times- The Wrong Way!  So, below are a few tips to help you navigate the waters on how to wear this piece with style & grace.

More Coverage :: Sheer tops with prints or textures add more coverage. If you still feel a bit too sheer, add a blazer. Remember that sheer tops are fantastic layering pieces! Consider the sheer shirt your opportunity to show off a dress with an interesting back. Take that tank dress that has attractive design elements, such as a racer back cut & show it off in a subtle fashion. It is also a friendly layering piece for those ladies who are self conscious about showing off their arms. {You know who you are!} 

Opaque ::  Create an opaque look with two sheer pieces in the same color range, layering one garment over the other.

Keep The Cut Loose ::  Opt for sheer tops that are loose and blousy to subtley show or avoid showing, your undergarment. In my opinion, there is nothing more unflattering than a tight, sheer blouse. Remember that you want the blouse to have a relaxed, comfortable fit.

When In Doubt ::  Go With Black! Sheer blouses come in a variety of colors but we find black to be the most sophisticated & subtle shade.

SO…. Sheer Blouses work well with shorts, flowing over a pair of well tailored jeans or slacks, tucked into high waisted pants {for they do not create bulk} and after all is said & done…when worn properly you can get away with wearing a little SEXY underneath! Have FUN ….&  if it isn’t fun, well…you know where to find me!

Summer Lovin’ Part Deux

Don't Be Blue When Swim Suit Shopping

Don’t Be Blue When Swim Suit Shopping

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK…Let’s get down to business with Rule #2 – a guide to purchasing the proper swim suit. Last week I dished up  Rule # 1- Know your body type. Today I will touch on – Selecting The Right Cut that either maximizes or minimizes the areas we want to enhance or detract attention from. Here Is A Quick Run Down….

BIKINI STYLE SWIMWEAR 

Tops ::  To make small breasts look bigger opt for bright colors or white. One should gravitate towards swimwear that has slight embellishments, such as ruffles because these will add the appearance of volume. Halter and/or bandeau tops look fantastic on small breasted women.  If your frame tips towards the other end of the spectrum & you are large breasted, wear dark colors such as black. Small patterns are OK but steer clear of stripes & large patterns. Avoid buying any swim suit that does not have the proper support, such as an underwire, for this will create a more flattering figure.

Bottoms :: When selecting the proper bottoms, it is not only about how it makes your derriere look but also how certain cuts accentuate the leg.  Some of the same rules apply for selecting the proper bottoms, as did for selecting the proper top. {This isn’t rocket science!  Even though it feels like it in the dressing room!} Women with small shaped bottoms should select & wear light colors or white, also select a suit with design details such as ruffles, for this will accentuate & create the illusion of fullness.  A high-cut style that rounds the hip bone will make the legs look lean & longer. You are also one of the few that can look stunning in a pair of boy shorts.  To make your butt look smaller, wear dark colors & lean towards high-cut bottoms or ones that tie.  If you wish to minimize the waist,  find a suit that is shirred or has ruched fabric around the stomach. Next- Mix & match your tops & bottoms or keep it all the same, this is where you get to express your own creativity in the swimwear department.

THE ONE PIECE

The one-piece swim suit is not something we wear when we are no longer youthful enough to wear a bikini. One-piece  suits can be very sexy, especially when you choose the most flattering cuts and colors for your body. Similar tips overlap & apply when shopping for that bikini or one-piece suit.  Here is a quick video that can assist us in tying it all up.

Always RememberThe secret to a good swimsuit is drawing attention to the most flattering parts of our figure!!  When all else fails as far as coming to some kind of understanding of which suit to buy, you have two options  ::  I can provide expert knowledge on where to go and moral support through the shopping process {Contact me here- allison@allisonjonesdesign.com } or try this link for more details on the net. { I am much more FUN though! }
