Twin Cities residents, TONIGHT, Friday, November 9, I’ll be judging the Night Vision Trunk Show! Express Yourself Clothing, a local thrift store, partnered with 11 design students from St. Kates. Each designer chose three items from the store to create a whole new look. Come join the fun! It’s free!
I’ll be at the Edina Galleria EILEEN FISHER store TOMORROW, Saturday, November 10! Join me from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. when I’ll be reading from my book, talking about adapting trends for your body type, and offering personal wardrobing advice.
Next week, I’ll be speaking on a panel at Giant Steps, a conference for creative entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial creatives. The conference is in its third year, and has a reputation for being an incredible resource for artists and businesspeople. Other speakers include Dara Moskowitz-Grumdahl, Maren Kloppmann, and Jessy Greene among many others. It’s on November 16 at the Guthrie Theater, and you can register right here.
And this has little to do with me, but the Uptown Minneapolis Fluevog store is opening TOMORROW, Saturday, November 10, and there will be two Minneapolis-only styles for sale. Whoopeeeeee!

“If you were to make a caricature of Michael Kors, what would he be wearing? Probably a black tee shirt, jeans, maybe a black blazer and a pair of aviator sunglasses. How about Vera Wang? I’d put her in a tunic and leggings in shades of black and gray, a fresh yet bare face and sleek long hair parted in the middle.
