Ask ROSEystyle...

Recently my BFF, Sandy Sloan, Independent Stella and Dot Stylist was awarded the honor of a New York City trip with Stella and Dot.  As part of this trip she will be ringing the closing bell at the NASDAQ!  What's a stylish girl that loves to be on trend to wear?!!!  

Here was Sandy's Dilemma: 

"Here's the skinny: I'm a jeans girl, but when told an upcoming important event next Friday would be a sans jeans event AND would be photographed and televised, I panicked! What's a girl to wear in NYC that would be chic, be considered business casual, keep out the chill, and represent the colors and trends of the season?"

 We found her a FABULOUS look that says it all! Stylish and chic with just the right mix of fun and sophistication.   The only decision left is which Stella and Dot piece should she wear? Should it be the Bianca Tassel or the Festival of Dawn necklace? 

 Let us know which has you vote by commenting below or visiting her Facebook page at! 

ROSEystyle Recommends:

Dress: Eliza J ; Coat:  Anthropologie; Shoes: Stuart Weitzman; Necklace's: Stella and Dot
Festival 'til Dawn and Bianca Tassel; Bag: Mui Mui

If you are in the Bay Area contact me to book an appointment to help solve your wardrobe dilemmas, or ask me your questions and see what ROSEystyle, recommends at Ask ROSEystyle!

Spring into a Whole New You!

Today's post is NOT about the hottest spring fashion trends. (that's for later). Instead, today I am letting you in on another way to update your personal style. This time from the inside.

ROSEYstyle Recommends:
 This week is the launch of the new book, Change Starts at Home: Simple Changes to Create the Life You Want, which is filled with inspiration and practical tools to help you easily improve all the key areas of your life. All week, best-selling authors, thought leaders and coaches are offering free gifts with purchase of the book – in paperback and Kindle

One part of the book that I really identified with was the section on how to view your life as your own movie, which author (and friend ), Laura Rose, shares with us here!

Read on, contact me for an appointment to style you for your "starring role", and get ready to “Spring into a Whole New You!”
Live Your Own Movie
An excerpt from Change Starts at Home: Simple Changes to Create the Life You Want by Laura Rose

My mother taught me something very powerful when I was young. She said, “Laura, your life is your own personal movie. You get to write it, cast it, direct it, and best of all, star in it. And remember, if you don’t like how some of the characters behave, you have the ability to write them out of the script altogether.”

When you see your life this way, you begin to realize how quickly you can create the life you want to live. Seeing it from an outside perspective, gives you the ability to step back and look objectively at what behaviors, relationships or other situations you want to change and what you would rather have them be.

What I’ve learned through the years is that you get to choose what the genre is as well. You get to decide if it is a comedy, a drama, a tragedy or an action film. Anything you can dream up, you can create.

As you consider what type of movie you want to live, ask yourself some questions. Do you want to laugh through life, feel intense passion and drama, or be wildly adventurous? You can create the life you want by simply deciding to write the storyline that way. It doesn’t always have to be the same. You can decide that this year is going to be an action film and next year is going to be a comedy.

Think about what you want your life to look like and how you want it to play out. What does the star act like? What does she wear? How does she live her life? Is she courageous, funny, vivacious, beautiful?

Your life is yours alone to enjoy. No one else has the right to direct it. You get to make your own decisions based on the story and the ending you want to create.

And remember, you do the casting, too. If someone isn’t treating you the way you want to be treated, write him or her out of the script, even if it is just for a few scenes so that you can get a break from them. You can always write them back in later (if you feel like it).

The point is that this movie is all about you and what you want. When you begin to live in this way, you tap into your creative power and your deepest desires. If you can dream it, you can become it. While you’re dreaming make sure it’s a box office hit, not a “straight to DVD” quality film.

Lights! Camera! Action!

1.     Imagine your life as a movie. What would the genre be?
2.     How would the main character act, look, think and feel?
3.     What would a happy ending look like?

Pick up your copy of Change Starts at Home: Simple Changes to Create the Life You Want on Amazon and email your receipt number to for your free digital gifts. For more details about the launch and more tips on improving your life, visit

Forty +, Fabulous and Pregnant?!!!

Bet you thought it was me right?! No not me! But my good friend Julie (and sometimes editor of this blog!)is, and isn't she fabulous?! The third time is definitely a charm for this gal.  Maternity fashion is so great now, there is no reason to be a frumpy dump, just cause you've got a baby bump(that was my ode to Dr. Seuss, it was his birthday after all). 

So, Watch out all of you celebrity mom's, us regular gals can do forty and pregnant as fashionably and fabulously as you!!!

Tangerine Dream

Will you be hopping on the tangerine trend for spring? I know I will, if only in some small way. You see, sometimes it's okay to skip a trend. Maybe "tangerine" isn't your fave color. I must admit it is not one of my faves! But it does look fresh and new to me. For me this trend will be more to add a bit of pop to white or denim. Maybe I'll add some fun accessories or jewelry to my wardrobe just to give it a small nod.

 How will you wear your tangerine? Let me know.

ROSEystyle  Recommends:
Taste of Tangerine

J Brand cotton capri pants, $230
Topshop, $70
J.Crew suede wedge heels, $228
MICHAEL Michael Kors michael kors flat, $89
Michael Kors leather shoulder handbag, $895
Polka dot jewelry, $49
Multi strand necklace
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture, $32
essie nail polish - tangerine
