Fall into my Favorites

photo 1

Fall is my favorite time of year, not because I get to cover up my least favorite body parts but because the fashion is so fun. I feel like having to wear more garments is nothing more than an opportunity to express myself with each piece. I am a girl who marches to the beat of her own drum when it comes to what I wear. I pay some attention to what is trendy and am mostly influenced by the music industry and my own creative thoughts when I’m getting dressed in the morning. I sat in my closet and threw together ten fashion rules that I will be following as the leaves begin to turn!

Pop that Color

Don’t be afraid to bring some color pop with you into the fall. The easiest way to do it is with a fun purse or tote! No more matching, be bold!

Give ’em the Boot

Booties are my absolute fav, I even sneak these in with shorts in the summer. I am in love with my Docs, they are timeless and I would wear them everyday if I could. Pair them with some fun socks for some added funk!

Be a Beanie Head

Beanies are awesome, not only do they keep your ears warm but they can make a statement. I love the beanies that the Supreme brand has to offer but also own some that I found for a couple of bucks at Target. I love pairing a beanie with some big hoop earrings.

Love the Crew

Crew necks are becoming. I have started a small collection, they are perfect with a pair of shorts on a fall day and can make a statement depending on what is printed on the front. These are an easy find at the thrift store, I recommend scoping out the men’s section. PacSun has an endless supply.

I will never stop wearing skippies. I found my favorite pair yet at H&M in iridescent for $12.95. These are also a great way to add some color pop, did I mention how comfy they are? Get them a size too big and wear them with some boot socks, you’ll be in love and stylish at the same time!

Be Bold with Gold

Gold is timeless and all that I wear. Add some umph to anything that you are wearing with a thick gold chain or a long chain with a charm. Check out your Grandma’s jewelry box or the jewelry case at the local thrift store and you will be surprised at the unique pieces that you will find.

Dream in Jean

Jean goes with everything, the only rule is to never wear a matching jean top and bottom. A dark jean jacket paired with a light pair of boyfriend jeans and your favorite T-shirt is super comfy and makes a statement. I have bought almost every jean shirt that I’ve laid eyes on! Rock a jean vest over a sweater for a super cool look.

Color Your Neck

Who doesn’t like scarves? Again, these are a great item to thrift. You can find tons for nearly nothing! If you are feeling super crafty, you can make your own by finding your favorite printed fabric at the nearest craft store and hemming the edges.

Warm Your Arms

Arm warmers are one of my favorite things to wear and help keep your arms super warm on chilly nights. If you don’t know where to find them, type in arm warmers in eBay…thank me later!

Smell like Leather

A good leather jacket is a must have! I recommend having a black one and a brown one to throw on over a sweater, crew neck or flannel. With a cute leather jacket, you can bring any outfit up a few notches.

Don’t be afraid to make your own rules, fashion is a creative outlet, USE IT!!!!


Speak Volumez

One of the keys to having a happy life is to surround yourself with those who are driven and those who inspire you. As I have gotten older, I have learned that quality really does trump quantity when it comes to every aspect of life, especially friendships. I met the owner and operator of Volumez Styling many years ago and her style itself speaks volumes! To me she has been a beaming light of confidence, flare, and style so I was stoked when she shared her plan to endeavor into the fashion business! She has taken her zesty New Jersey style, east coast charm, and bold fashion sense and decided to help others out by offering styling and providing personal shopping services. Her zest for life and spunky personality make the experience one of a kind. I took a few moments to get into this young entrepreneurs head with a quick Q &A sesh:

Q: What inspired you to begin your own business?

A: I’ve always known, I would one day run my own company. I’m very independent and driven when it comes to business. My family is a great source of inspiration, I only want to make them proud.

Q: How long have you been styling?

A: Professionally a little under year, however I’ve been styling myself since I was a teenager. The tender age of 11, my mother always allowed me to dress myself and where whatever hairstyle I wanted. Creative freedom allowed me to find my true passion in fashion.

Q: What influences your style?

A: I like to have a mixture of everything when I’m getting dressed. The Hip Hop culture has my attention with the big accessories, sweat shirts, baggy pants. On the other side I’m such a girlie girl, tutus make me happy, stilettos, bright colors and anything sparkly. My most recent obsession is tribal prints, African wear and statement necklaces. I’m in character whenever It’s time to get dressed, the question is always “who do you want to be today?”

Q: How much do you think geography plays into someone’s personal style?

A: You can definitely tell where someone is from by their style of dress. Meanwhile you have those misfits that don’t belong anywhere. Those are the people I look up to, their the fashion rebel with no apologies. I’m a risk taker when it comes to fashion, I don’t like looking like everyone else.

Q: Where do you see Volume Styling five years from now?

A: I see the company having at least two brick and mortar stores located between Tampa FL and Ohio. Thriving online and extending the brand, we providing styling and image consultations as this present time. However I would like to see what we can do for the big screen. I have a passion for editorial work and short films. You can be whoever you want to be in that setting. So this too is a goal of mines for the company.

Q: What type of services do you currently offer your clients?Are there other areas that you wish to grow into?

A: We offer personal shopping, image consultant and wardrobe styling. However we do carry accessories, handbags and women’s apparel. I do offer personal shopping services for both men and women and love to help find special pieces for special events!

Q: What were your favorite trends during the summer season?

A: Skater skirts, bandeau tops, boots with shorts and the must have Kimono jacket! We will be featuring these item on the website.

Q: How can prospective clients get in contact with you?

A: I’m very personal when it comes to business all calls come directly to me or I can be reached by email, either one is fine. No office hours, I work for you!
