What I learned from Marcy

This is a tribute to my fabulous clients who are strong, intelligent, interesting, fun women and all have their own unique style that I am fortunate enough to channel. One client in particular suggested I put my tips on my blog. I said, "I can't even think of what they are because they are just a part of me". The next day I found, "What I learned from Marcy" in my inbox.

The following are not tips for spring; rather I used the Spring Collections 2010 to illustrate some of my eternal dictums because I thought it would be interesting and because spring is being shipped to stores now. We all know that many of the runway looks are rarely worn by real women but they serve to exaggerate my points and expand your imagination.

1. Having only one bold accessory, in this case the lip, is very modern and chic. Sunglasses are not an accessory in California but a necessity!

2. Navy & black go together.

3. Don't buy the label, buy what looks good on you, period. That said, there are some labels that should not be worn.

4. Take proportion into consideration. The voluminous and sheer (nipples were a runway trend) top is balanced by a rather narrow skirt.

5. Brown & black together is eternally chic.

6. Keep it simple so the emphasis is on YOU. Don't wear rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings all at the same time. It is not modern.

7. Keep it comfortable or you won't reach for it in the closet.
