It's a fascinating video to think about the construction of the jacket and how it is still a key staple in Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel today, but also at all your most affordable retail stores such as Club Monaco or Forever 21.
In 1954, Coco Chanel returned to her design house to design the tweed jacket, a core staple seen in all of Chanel's collections. I guess what surprises me is that Mademoiselle Chanel designed the tweed jacket at age 71. Seen in this time as free movement and very modern to otherwise restrictive clothing , the tweed jacket was considered revolutionary.
In this 3rd segment of Personal stylists Barbra Horowitz's day at the 85th Academy Awards. Barbra shares how dressing men and women whom go to major events is a piece of pie.. Even this pro shopper/stylist stresses. The stakes are high in how to pull yourself together but sometimes not every detail is as important. Big thank you to the wonderful lifestyle host-Gregory Zarian.
Your hair is done, the dress looks fabulous, but what are you going to do with that bag? Barbra shows you a few quick tips on how to look cool in the clutch at your next special event. Gratuitous pugs appearances by Barbra's Senior pugs-Buddha and Sabina.
Hussein Chalayan is so worth commenting on. This is the wave of the future of Fashion Design. The Jetson's era is now. Rip chording from a sheath to an evening gown is the exact thesis of my personal styling. One minute you are at work in a sheath dress...the next minute you are in evening wear or a fantastic elegant maxi with the rip of a chord! These designs are truly noble peace prize material and very exciting for the duality and the simplicity of all in one.

You can learn how to dress for your body, your age demo, your life.I couldn't believe the title of Ryan Murphy's (Glee) new show-The New Normal. I say that term all of the time! When working in your closet, I continually preach that what we are creating, at first seems so left field...in fact wrong, incorrect, crazy and weird. You see, your brain gets used to what you tell it. When you show it something different, at first your natural reaction is to hate it, think "it's crazy", "oh no, I could never". What we really are creating is YOUR NEW NORMAL. There isn't a client who doesn't go through some sort of panic when we are together. It's normal. Your brain is there to protect you from experiences that could be damaging. Sometimes your brain doesn't recognize good differently from bad.
Factor in that you could be working in a highly masculine profession and a super duper smarty pants (meaning your an academic). It takes your brain a moment to switch over, allowing these new concepts in.
As a culture of what I like to call "university of same", it's become increasingly harder with business casual to step out and forge ahead. Some of you opt for fitting in while some of you may work at home and it's only the kids and your dogs who will see you that entire day. So, you think, "why bother?"
Ultimately, you have to signal to yourself that every day is the very first day of the rest of your life. If you like who you are and what is in your closet, it damn well is going to be an easier day. Clothing is essential to covering your body, being interested is not.
Navigating your day in a way where you "got this"...who doesn't want that?!
As a culture, we accept or reject in a millisecond.
If you don't like what you are wearing, how's that going to bode for your day or those around you?
Clothing is truly your secret weapon. But if you don't know how to fire the gun, than perhaps you need to learn. :)
