We ONLY have 24 seats available!!!
Cue the fireworks...*~POP!~* *~CRACKLE!~* *~BOOM!~* The secret is out :)
This idea has been living in a dreamy space in my head for 3 years...3 YEARS PEOPLE!!! Now, it is happening and it's better than I could ever have imagined. This trip is going to go above and beyond a typical Chicago shopping trip. My wonderful team and I have brainstormed EVERYTHING we could possibly think of to make this a fun, stress free, positive, and unforgettabe experience for all of the beautiful ladies that join us.
Mark your calendar for an all day event on Thursday August 7, 2014!!! I chose a Thursday to avoid the weekend crowds and get you out of work for a day ;) You're welcome.
The focus of this trip is to build YOUR essential items list for fall and help you successfully execute that list with ease on the Magnificent Mile (Michagan Ave.)!
How are we going to do this?
Long before we hop on that beautiful bus, we will be doing a lot of prep creating your customized shopping list.
After signing up, I will email you a survey to fill out. From the survey we will determine your list of essential items for Fall. You will receive the list of your personal Fall items, along with a list of "Krystle Approved" stores where I suggest you go to find those items. Of course, my suggestions will include information on the cuts and styles that will best accentuate your body shape, budget, and personal style.
For that extra tricky piece, you know...that one HUGELY annoying item that gives you trouble every time you go shopping for it...yeah...that's the one ;) You will have personalized help from me, my assistant stylist, and the staff at Nordstroms at your scheduled appointment to find that extra tricky piece. What?! Yes...you read correctly. I will be partnering with Nordstroms on Michigan Ave. on that wonderful day. In fact, that is where I will be housed all day pulling those specific pieces just for YOU!
To give you an idea of what to expect, here is the schedule for what the day will look like on 8/7/14:
P.S. Notice your 30 minute scheduled time to meet with Krystle and her team at Nordstroms. There you will get personalized attention along side a few other ladies. Since we will have determined the item you would like help finding ahead of time, Krystle will have options pulled and ready for you to try upon arrival.
The Amaze details:
With Mother's day right around the corner, I was thinking this would be a really killer gift! And it WOULD...so I started thinking...wouldn't this be fun with a friend, mother, sister, favorite co-worker...etc.? So I have a special price when you sign up in two's :) You and your bestie (sistie, momsie, co-worksie...) will save a total of $100 together!
How do I sign up?
With the limited 24 seats available, I encourage you to reserve your ticket(s) ASAP by selecting your ticket option below through Paypal. You can email me if you would prefer another form of payment.
We are going to have a beyond fantastic time together and I really want you there! Soon, after signing up, you will be receiving updates via email prompting the process of creating your customized shopping list and other fun details...
You knew I had a good reason for holding out on you, right!? This is going to be epic...
P.S. What are your thoughts about the BIG secret being revealed?!? Are you coming with me?? Tell me how you feel...
Note: We don't anticipate this being a problem, but there are a minimum number of seats we need to fill to give this trip the green light. So if there are others you would like on the trip, please forward this info to them! No refunds accepted. However, if we don't reach our minimum number for the trip, you will be re-embursed in full.
My Sick Obsession...and it's Local - Iona
So if you haven't heard me scream it from the rooftops in person, you have probably seen me plaster it all over my facebook page...
In the Emerson Neighborhood located at 807 E. Johnson St. there is a premier designer boutique called Iona that offers beautiful cutting edge pieces unlike anything else in Madison.
I am going to give you a proper introduction to this sweet little boutique and show you some of their items on my beautiful client Michele :)
With styles ranging from modern and edgy to bohemian and classic, they truly carry something for everyone. Pamela (right), the owner of Iona, brings each season’s carefully edited collections as well as quality basics, both from established designers we know and love and emerging ones in which she truly believes.
One of my guilty pleasures is learning from the fantastic staff (Shana, Gabrielle, and Stephanie) about the beauty behind the brands and the stories they have to tell.
These are quality pieces that you will love to wear time and time again. I preach quality over quantity to my clients and this is a great way to perfect your wardrobe AND support local. The perfect concoction...
Far more often than I'de like to admit, I shop at the "standard" chain stores for clients and I cannot tell you how refreshing it was to bring my beautiful client Michele with me on a trip to Iona to share in my latest addiction...
They have a fantastic collection of premium denim that is a must see, must touch, and must try...
Here I am furrowing my brow in disbelief over how beautiful this piece is...
Of course, we found some amazing items to put on Michele...
This gorgeous dress is a A.L.C (Andrea Lieberman Collection ) who was a celebrity stylist first before launching her line. The necklace is IOSSELLIANI a jewelry line out of Rome, Italy.
Love this Grey Helmut Lang sonar wool asymmetrical zip sweater, with a Raquel Allegra tie dye tank top underneath, MOTHER denim, and necklace is K/LLER collection.
Here is a hand dyed Raquel Allegra tie dye maxi dress with a IOSSELLIANI necklace.
Their jewelry selection is out of this world...
IOSSELLIANI necklace, Heather Gardner leather cuff, Gabriela Artigas gold bracelet
IOSSELLIANI fringe necklace
Do I have you drooling yet?! My absolute favorite tee (Velvet by Graham and Spencer) of all time was purchased from Iona and I want to literally wear it everyday and sleep in it every night. To find a tee that makes you feel like a million bucks is not easy, but in it I do. I feel like I can conquer my mile long to-do list and look hot doing it. I am actually wearing it in my "How to Wear a Scarf" video. Oh yeah, I also wore it with K/ller jewelry (also from Iona) in my Brava photo shoot (photo below). Maybe I do wear it everyday and every night...
I could go on for days about this boutique, so I think I need to stop gushing. Many thanks to my beautiful client Michele for letting me play dress up, the lovely Iona staff, and Friou Photography for taking these lovely images!
P.S. Have you been in yet?? Would you want to go with me...? A private Love, Krystle boutique tour of Iona is coming soon...
Your Top 10 "Must Haves" for Spring Part 2
On to the second part, which I think you will appreciate…
We are going to cover a few little extra things that I believe matter just as much as the clothes such as some great spring lipstick colors, sunglasses, and sandal ideas. Let's hop right in...
6. Round Sunglasses
For a quite a few years, we have been seeing the oversized square shape and even though I am and was a BIG fan, I am SOOOO excited to have a new option. These send me a 60's vibe that embodies glamour and sex appeal. So excited to get my hands on some...
7. The Short Suit
Although this may not meet all of the work dress code requirements, I think this look is so freaking amazing! You could wear it to spring/summer parties, brunch, a wedding, on a date...dress it up with a blouse and heels, dress it down with flats and a tee, wear the pieces separately...Endless options. BIG FAN!
8. Two Strap Heeled Sandals
These are NOT going anywhere anytime soon. This style is so flattering and classy looking. If you are worried about your legs looking shorter, go with a pair that keep the ankle open, like the pic on the right.
9. Lipstick in Bright Orange or Pastel Pink
Some of you know that I was a professional makeup artist previously to styling. It was and sometimes still is another avenue I like to use to help women embrace their unique beauty. I treat makeup as another step to completing the "look". It can really add that extra oomph, just like an accessory. In fact, that's how I think a little pop of color on the lips should be treated, like another fabulous accessory.
10. The Soft Shirt
The "Soft Shirt" is a camp style shirt that is made of silk or a silk/cotton blend. This makes it lightweight, blouse like, and super flattering. You can wear them with skirts, tie them up over a dress, or front tuck them with your denim pants or shorts...it is the perfect shirt for spring.
If you acquire most (if not all) of these 10 must have spring items, I can guarantee you will be set! For a refresher, you can refer back to the first 5 here Your Top 10 "Must Haves" for Spring Part 1
I hope this gave you some guidance...and now that the weather is FINALLY cooperating, let's rock out spring by looking good and feeling even better! Woot woot!
P.S. I am going to get my hands on BOTH of those lip colors. Anything you have on your mind that is your personal "I cannot live without it!" spring must have??? I'd love to know...xoxo
