Macys Working Women Fashion Event 2013 (5)This is one of the many fashion shows I style and commentate for my client Macy’s. This one was at its historical flagship store in New York City, Herald Square.  The show was focused on “How To Be Stylish in the Workplace”.  My guest co-host for the show was the remarkable Helene Lerner, author of In Your Power, which is about women finding their voice in the workplace. She is also an independent public television host, Emmy Award-winning executive producer and Fortune 500 workplace consultant.  She covers a wide array of women’s issues—from breaking barriers and work-life balance, to health and wellness, to relationships and building self-esteem which we discussed as key points to climbing the ladder of success in addition to just LOOKING the part.

I styled Helene for the event that day and we got along so well she has asked me to
do a monthly fashion post on her blog and newsletter. I have been her fashion writer for several months now and the response has been fantastic! I discuss how to look your best, how to keep your chic without losing your respect in the office and tips on trends and what’s coming up next in hot collections to look out for all workplace approved. Helene and I was definitely an odd couple but awesome knows awesome and so the partnership began. She is an
awesome woman and with a huge following and I am happy to be a part of a movement promoting women being  their best and looking their best while doing it!  We all need support emotionally, mentally and physically to be that intelligent, strong and focused individual in a male dominated world.  Check it out my posts and all the other wonderful experts on the blog at

My first photo session Keith Major (76)I’m still so used to being behind the camera it still feels weird being in front of it. Here are some clips of the making of my  shoot. Lucky me, I had the best celebrity glam squad on the planet: Celebrity Photographer Keith Major , Celebrity Makeup Artist Monifa Mortis-Simons , Celebrity Hairstylist Dana Gibbs of dansalofthair and my wardrobe support team (Nchimunya Wolf/Via Black/Traceye Smith). You know how they say a doctor is one of the worst patients? I can know understand why, I might have micromanaged…. a little <clearing my throat>. LOL!

Sometimes in the midst of my stresses juggling LIFE I wonder “why did I go back into these early stages of mommyhood?”  Then when I feel like I can’t catch a break and start to get overwhelmed, my sweet 10 year old steps in to save the day. Like when I am trying to get breakfast on before I have to leave for work and the baby decides to eat on the floor instead of out of the bowl I provided….THANK GOD I keep clean floors!  Gosh, the things you let go of with kid #2. I would have NEVER let this be ok with my first child. Don’t judge me!
