Get it DONE...

Dear Diary,

"Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!"
- Andrew Carnegie

Tis’ the season of graduations…I think I’m gathering a fashionable concept to turn that gown (frown) upside-down and into a stylish-chic’ arrangement. It’s just too frumpy for me….nevertheless, the show must go on. Congratulations to those crossing the marker of success this month. Read on to learn about one of the most positive individuals on my team from a recent interview of my impeccable stylist

Your are known as the stylist for Joli'....tell us how you got your start in the styling business and how your consulting firm- Glamourotti has helped you achieve such greatness...
"I knew styling was for me from participating in various internships related to fashion. I tried design, merchandising and styling---styling was the avenue that gave me the most joy and it just came naturally! I did a summer styling internship in New York then came back to Houston and began interning with JONES magazine. I was happy to work where needed with the magazine, they eventually saw my passion for styling and offered me an opportunity to style some photoshoots. When you work for clients you have to purvey the image they ask of you, I knew I was talented in that avenue so I launched a name for my styling company and parlayed that into other opportunities to style for music videos, personal consultations and now here I am with Diary of Joli'!"

What's "in" for you this season? As a stylist, tell our readers what you plan to rock this summer...
"This summer I'm so excited because I love color and that's the hot trend! Color blocking by layering your shorts, skirts or pants with cool tee's or oxford shirts and a nice light-weight blazer. Dresses are of course in for the summer and are classic. Jersey fabric dresses are in but the key is in the draping and ruffles! Of course cotton dresses with patterns are key and statement making as well!"

What are some quirky (individualistic) things that people may or may not know about you...
"I hate planning what to wear say the night before a full day! I'm better at dressing on a whim, it helps me stay creative, spontaneous and true to how I feel at that moment! I love music and what I call car karaoke! In my mind when I'm in the car I'm the best songstress that ever lived! I do runs, hit high notes, the works! But on a serious tip music also helps me stay creative with fashion and style. Certain musical tunes or lyrics ignite styles and looks in my's crazy how it happens but when it does i have to jot it down or try and sketch it out. I also hate gum!!!! I seriously despise it! Why would I want to constantly chew on something for hours nonstop?!...unladylike in my book!"

Time to do a shout-out....Do you have a favorite designer/stylist? If so, who is it and why...
"My fav stylist is most definitely Patricia Field! Her work on Sex and the City is genius. She's parlayed that into her own line and store. She's definitely a creative mind that I look up to for inspiration and credit as a ground breaking individual.
My favorite designer was and forever will be the late Lee Alexander McQueen. His eye for detail, patterns, and construction was breathtaking. He was a true artist and the epitome of the what the definition of designer should be."

P.S. By far, my favorite piece from the Premiere of Sex and the City 2....GENIUS work Valentino!
