I’m a stay at home mom/work from home, mother of three young children, and personal stylist. I studied Fashion Design and Merchandizing at Santa Monica College and hold a degree in Print Journalism from the University of Southern California. Gamine & Stripes started as a spin off from my first blog, Simple Everyday Style, when I saw how much traffic my Fashion Friday posts were gaining and the two different audiences the blog attracted. I love to help friends navigate the latest trends, update their wardrobe, and find those favorite clothes that make them look and feel great without breaking the bank!
Knowing and having confidence in your personal style will free you from being sucked into the consumeristic mentality of bigger, cuter, better. Honing in on your own style will keep you from being a trend tramp and cultivate true style by not only knowing what’s in, but wearing only what works for you. Style isn’t about flashing every hot new look, but mastering a style to make it your own-no matter what’s struttin’ down the runway! You can look cute, chic, sophisticated-everyday!
Stay. Get inspired. Don’t leave without getting connected to receive emails with styling tips, alerts to the latest trends, how to wear them, and join a community of fashionistas just like you. Hope to hear from you soon!
