Stylist San Francisco
Nothing like a chop to make you feel like a new girl!

Writing this is a bit like awkwardly running in to a friend I haven’t called back in months…Ohhhh, heeeyyyy….I bet you thought I forgot you, Foxes. Quite the contrary, you’ve been on my mind a lot. And, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I’ve been busy styling away since my last post (in July!!!).

At the risk of turning a style blog into a therapy session, I’ve been MIA here because life majorly kicked my ass the second part of 2013. My family’s been facing a serious illness. Though I am healthy, the fight’s affected and demanded a lot from me. Other than lots of great clients who completely made me feel normal (THANK YOU!), I retreated from almost everything else last year, including you. I’m sorry for disappearing without explanation.

My family’s fight for health continues, but taking on 2014, I’m (mostly) harder, better, faster, stronger and excited to get back to sharing with you. Still, it doesn’t seem right to move ahead without taking a moment to look back at all you missed. Here’s what I was up to while life fell apart. (Scroll/click on the photos for descriptions of the action.) Happy to be back at it, Foxes.

Making it Work at Work

What happens in the dressing room, stays in the dressing room. Still, I couldn’t help snapping photos of memorable moments and perfectly arranged clothes during appointments.

Men of Style

A lot of people ask, “do you style men?” Of course! Guys want to look great too. I worked with some seriously dapper dudes the past few months.

Fashion Styling

In addition to working one-on-one with personal styling clients, I’ve been on-set for quite a few runways and editorial and commercial shoots since we chatted. Turns out, I’ve got a knack with a steamer.

You Can Never Have Too Many Shoes

As I reviewed the hundreds (I mean HUNDREDS) of photos I’ve taken in the past six months, I noticed shoes are overly represented in the mix. Kinda like in my closet.

Me Time

In the midst of the stress, I found time to have some fun with family and friends (not to mention obsess over my cutie nephew, B).

Finally, Friday

It’s kind of appropriate that the first and last projects I did since writing were styling for my friend Kellee‘s awesome children’s clothing line Good Boy Friday.  We shot the Spring/Summer ’14 lookbook last July and wrapped the Fall ’14/Winter ’15 last week.
