I have run myself ragged catering to all my clients' needs this season. Truly, this has been my busiest December in my seven years as a personal stylist with two to three clients every day. Between vacations, present shopping, events and travels to colder areas, it seemed every client expressed a need for an appointment now versus later. I felt like I was running a political campaign with my attitude, "No client is left behind!" To their satisfaction, and mine, I was able to prepare everyone for their holiday season. 

A big ticket item for my clients this season was cold weather outerwear. Many clients needed true snow jackets for their trips back east and north, but most clients requested a lighter winter cover-up that could do well with the San Diego rain and wind. I placed various jackets on numerous backs, but I found the Laundry by Shelli Segal quilted zip-up jacket in sardinia blue ($99) to fit the bill perfectly while flattering numerous body types and skin tones. The lean silhouette implies proportioned curves for all shapes including petite and plus size, while the teal color brings out the stunning eyes of a blond mother of two client and makes the skin glow of an African American client. This color is also extremely versatile. Teal will go with earth tones as well as blacks. This is the most fabulous rain proof goodie I have seen in ages.
