I came across this video of uber stylist Lori Goldstein and thought I would share in case you have not seen it. She has a definitive style - Schlumpy Chic - is what she coins it but whether you like her style or not take what she says to heart. Be an individual, express yourself, let what you wear reflect who you are. More practical styling tips, buy what you love, buy quality and then mix it with low end pieces that can stand up well against the high end. Though for the sake of your wallets you may want to ignore the whole Birkin obsession thing - I personally just closed ny eyes when the camera panned across the shelves of those lovely, lovely little objects de art!
