Thirty-Something Fashion :: Chic Blog of the Week

I’ve loved Thirty Something Fashion for awhile now. Carly is not only just the sweetest thing in real life, but she is a fashionista even among fashionistas!! Carly worked for premiere retailers like Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Nicole Miller Philadelphia – she’s styled high profile clients,  produced live runway shows and gave fashion tips on local newstations. “After a fulfilling year of fashion blogging, I found myself wanting more and my personal shopping and styling business was born. Trained to know luxury apparel, but equally smitten with affordable boutique brands, my signature is mixing high and low designs.  My greatest fashion pleasures are sharing my finds, styling ideas and helping women find a perfect look that enables them to feel their absolute best.”

1.  How do you describe your style?
Classic with a modern twist.  Over the years I have learned what looks good on me and what doesn’t, but I also enjoy trying new trends.  So, I stick to the classics and infuse some “of the moment” pieces.

2.  What is your favorite thing in your closet? 
My practical side says my SAVA Chocolate Brown Blazer. I reach for it most often and it never disappoints.  My impractical side says my Nicole Miller skinny leather pants.  I have worn them only twice and they were pricey but I feel like I can take on the world when I wear them.

3.  What is your “best buy” story? 
Most of my designer shoes are extremely generous gifts from my husband.  I have scored on my own, ONCE, with a pair of sandal/bootie hybrids (sound hideous but are fabulous) from Last Call Neiman Marcus.  They were originally $700 and I got them for $150.  SCORE!!!!

4.  What are your favorite stores to shop? 
As you can tell from my blog, I am a TOTAL boutique shopper.  I adore the brands/labels that you won’t see everywhere on everyone.  I shop at local Jersey Shore boutiques like Lola’s and D. Monaco in Point Pleasant, Katherine’s in Manasquan and when I am in Philadelphia I shop at SAVA, Third Street Habit and Nicole Miller.  Of course I shop national brands as well for convenience.  My favorites are Old Navy, JCPenney and Banana Republic.

5.  My most valuable tool in my makeup/skincare bag:
This is a tie between my Clarasonic and Arbonne Liquid Foundation. I am officially obsessed with both!
