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 of the Best

Ready for quick and easy shopping? Only the absolute MOST beloved items I am putting on my clients are listed here.

Best Skirted Swimsuit

This is one of the few skirted swimsuits that is actually flattering AND stylish! It is amazing for a busty body. It has the right amount of support and fits the bust beautifully — there’s no armpit fat overflow, cutting in, or pinching.

Material: 82% recycled nylon, 18% elastane

Sizing: 8-24

Available at: Nordstrom ($169.95)

Best Affordable Puffer Jacket

This lightweight and packable puffer jacket works for every single woman under 5’10”. It is shocking how warm something so lightweight can be — but it’s not overly warm. Perfect for layering.

Material: Face: 100% nylon; Filling: 90% down; Back: 100% nylon; Pocket lining: 100% polyester

Sizing: Runs ever so slightly small. You may want to size up if you want to layer it on top of sweaters or if you’re in between sizes.

Available at: Uniqlo ($79.90)

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)
