personal stylist Vanessa Valiente

Hi Beauty!

I am Vanessa Valiente, wardrobe stylist extraordinaire. I have been a dresser at The Old Globe, styled many a commercial, and been a costumer for TV shows.

But my real claim to fame is as San Diego’s #1 personal stylist. As a personal stylist, I am a maniac for practical glamour and functional fabulosity. I have dressed over 500 clients, working with every body type and personal style you can imagine.

Each week I find items that are just too yummy to keep between my clients and me. This fashion blog is my way of sharing those amazing goodies with all the over-scheduled women of the world who would love to delegate their personal shopping.

so let’s get to it...

Best Off-White Sneakers EVER

I cannot rave enough about these off white (courtside) squishy bendy foot covering comfort! They are strong, but so soft. So soft in fact, I never wear socks with them. And the design is just so “cooooool”.

Material: Knit from Rothy’s signature thread, which is spun from plastic bottles. Learn more. It took about 22 plastic bottles to knit this pair of shoes.

Sizing: Runs large. Order a ½ size down if between sizes.

Available at: Rothy’s ($149)

Best Wide Leg Pants

Hands down the best wide leg pants right now. Insanely comfortable and flattering. Machine washable, but dry cleaning keeps it crisp.
