Beating the Karan Clock

Fashion designer, Donna Karan once said something to the effect of, if you spend more than 10 minutes staring into your closet for something to wear; there isn’t something wrong with your clothes, but rather something wrong with you. Her voice rings in my head each time I am confounded by my closet (and its contents). I am not proud to admit, for a variety of reasons, that most Saturdays and Sundays I spend more than the prescribed amount of time noodling over what to wear. To me, a casual weekend look has always proven more elusive than that of a buttoned-up weekday one.

To squelch my closet confusion, sure, I could just throw on something from Lululemon. However, choosing to wear black easy-on, pull-up athletic pants with no plans to sweat at best feels disingenuous and at worst, like a fashion copout. This fall I endeavor to beat the “Karan Clock”. If I can incorporate some of this fall’s most wearable trends into my wardrobe, I just might have a chance of getting dressed in under 10 minutes. Since time is of the essence I decided to shop the one place I know produces slick weekend wear: J.Crew. Here are just a few of their clock-beating pieces.

After a long, hard labor, I am proud to announce the birth of my first book,  Fashion Dues & Duen’ts; a Stylist’s Guide to Fashionably Embracing Your Baby Bump (Know Act Be Books, 2014).

About the Guide

As a longtime fashion stylist, I thought I knew everything about dressing stylishly. That was before I got pregnant. My first pregnancy really threw me for a fashion loop until I came to realize that my personal style didn’t have to change along with my physique. Whew!

Conceived from this reality comes my newest project Fashion Dues & Duen’ts; a Stylist’s Guide to Fashionably Embracing Your Baby Bump (Know Act Be Books, 2014). It’s a cheeky how-to style guide for pregnancy that assists you, the mom-to-be reader, through your nine months, in style, by offering the fashion dues (dos) and duen’ts (don’ts) on where to shop, what to wear, how to wear, and how much to spend. Between its covers you will…

  • Learn how to carry cute 
  • Tweak your maternity clothes from  f a t t e r i n g to flattering
  • Categorize your personal style
  • Single-out the maternity wear posers in your closet
  • Diminish the dreaded baby bump tag-alongs with the right maternity shapewear
  • Get the scoop on the tried, tested, & approved maternity must-dues
  • Avoid a personal style pregnant pause

Benefit from the dressing tricks I have gleaned from my two pregnancies along with the styling secrets and shopping tips I provide for my pregnant clients. Fashion Dues & Duen’ts makes “showing” with style easy by offering you the simple style tools needed to ultimately become your own bump stylist.
