Of course, the principle only applies if stripes are wide enough to see – not so tiny that they blend together from […] Read more…

Vancouver Fashion Week, SS17

We at the STYLetti were thrilled to be invited to attend Vancouver (Canada) Fashion Week this season. First of all, Vancouver is a global city. More than half of its residents have something other than English as their first language.

Dressing Your Body Shape With Color

Color clothing tricks

I used to have an eating disorder – well, actually two. In high school, I strived to maintain model-like proportions and became anorexic. In college, I developed bulimia, mainly because I couldn’t continue starving myself although I felt the need to keep my hips and butt in check. Happy to say that I am presently […] Read more…

My wonderful seamstress, Cheing, recently updated a pair of jeans – taking the hem of […] Read more…

From Stilettos to Sneakers, The Street Style that Made it Happen

Stilettos to sneakers

A dear reader recently suggested that I offer tips for women over 45 on how to look good. I believe that part of looking “good” at any age means having a dynamic look. When we interact with our surroundings by taking in an outside influence here or there – rather than setting in concrete a style that worked ages ago – we prove that we […] Read more…

She has a sense of what she’ll have fun wearing and a system for maintaining clothing – and especially shoes! – in beautiful condition upon arrival.
