Welcome to the September issue. Our Cover star, Berry is the epitome of  beauty. Alex Tatar, Our contributing beauty Editor opted to cleanse the skin first with Bioderm Sensibio Micellar Water, mist with Caudalie Beauty Elixir    for tightening pores and providing an instant burst of radiance to your complexion. For moisturizer, she chose Orlane Paris Super- Moisturizing Light   ,massage into the skin for a beautiful perfect hydrated skin.

HOW TO ADD AN EXTRA DOSE OF STYE TO YOUR SHOE THIS FALL.

How to Add an Extra Dose of Style to Your Shoe This Fall WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE! In our efforts to be relevant and in trying to inform our viewers on how to make little bits of their wardrobe a little more special, we’re writing a series of posts on How To’s. In our last editorial, we were compelled to make the foot as interesting as what was going on in the clothes. Yet, in shooting fashion stories, we sometimes run into issues with acquiring really beautiful shoes that are not just your typical black stiletto or bootie. As a stylist, I’m constantly buying things to keep for use at a later date. Socks are one of them. These plain, black stilettos and booties...

WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE!

Welcome to Beautiful Fall: September Will Never Be the Same! WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE. We’re overjoyed with all the melanin popping on the covers of BRITISH VOGUE, AMERICAN VOGUE, ELLE, GLAMOUR, MARIE CLAIRE, and of course TWOmuchSTYLE. Our cover star, @Iamberry, comes to us via MP Management and is a newbie to the modeling world, a mere few months. We are thrilled to be her first major editorial and cover. The first thing I said to her upon meeting is, “You know you’re going to be big.” I don’t think she understands that she has the look of the moment, and this will take her to the runways of Paris and beyond. Remember, “You saw her here, first.” In researching for this month’s fashion...

SUMMER TWEED THIS WEEKEND!

HAPPY FRIDAY !! We hate to bust your bubble of sunshine, warmth , beaches and this thing call SUMMER. Fall is on its way and with it comes new silhouettes, new layers of wool and cashmere and of course falling temperatures. We are in love with this summer tweed pump we saw at Blake and at Saks Fifth Avenue. Tweed is synonymous with Chanel. We consider it a classic, therefore stride into the new Fall season with Balenciaga's Tweed Pump. We photographed this story at Jayson Home and Garden against a graphic backdrop of a striped coffee table and Balenciaga's charm bag. Tweed is one of the top trends for the fall season. Get an early start.Get it here: Balenciaga Tweed pump at...

JENNY BIRD JEWELRY. WHAT WE LOVE , RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

HAPPY MONDAY! WHAT WE LOVE RIGHT NOW! I was in Element's, the eponymous shop here in Chicago, a few weeks back, and spotted these fantastic pin's and had to orchestrate a shoot. I absolutely adore the photographer Richard Avedon. This image remind's me of his work. I really try to do a story within a story when styling a shoot. I want to invite the reader to think and process the image outside the fashion box. The pins were from the designer Jenny Bird. I think they are quite genius, a bit Salvador Dali muddled with a bit of Jean Cocteau. Jenny Bird's jewelry is available at Elements.

HOW TO SHOP LIKE A STYLIST….

I've always been asked this question. How do you do what you do so easily? This is my answer. I absolutely love what I do. Great style is actually not about the clothes at all, but about how you wear it, how you walk, how you enter a room and about how one feels when being dressed quite well. So many bloggers pile on the logos and labels and don't quite understand the pleasure of being well dressed.The sale season is upon us and now is the time to shop the major pieces you wanted, at a discount , of course. I suggest, the perfect leather bomber, candy colored cashmere, the perfect white shirts, embellished or not and the shoes you...

WE LOVE ANYTHING SHEER AT THIS MOMENT

Staying Elegant While Being Bold in the Summer Heat We’re in the midst of this summer’s first heat wave; it’s one hundred degrees today here, in Chicago. At TWOmuchSTYLE, we have the perfect fashion cure for that: sheer! Sheer – as in see through, diaphanous, and cooling; it’s what we recommend for a hot summer evening. In today’s post, we photographed Rebecca Bailey in an Oscar De La Renta’s silk, tulle embroidered dress with leaf applique worn with a Saint Laurent feather, wrap sandal. A little leg baring look to inspire you to be daring this summer. Stay cool, let the air in. IT’S SUMMER.
