It is a wide-held belief that celebrities have an innate sense of style, a sneak peek into the fashion world. They are, many would say, inherently trendy and voguish.

I disagree. Celebrities are, of course, usually at the forefront of fashion. But not necessarily because of their obvious good taste. Instead, I propose that they look perpetually stylish because of the size of their wallets rather than their keen knowledge of aesthetics.

In fact, I would argue that a majority of people would be deemed equally as fashion-forward if they could shop in the best stores with no qualms about money - and a personal stylist to boot!

I agree. When you have alot of money, you have a much broader selection open to you. However, even on a shoestring budget you can find a few things that are fashionable.

It is definitely true that celebrities do not have the best sense of style or fashion!
They might be around it more than the mainstream, hard-working American, but many of them work with personal stylists and have oodles of money to spend at Saks, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, etc.

If you are not rich nor famous, no need to stress! I am a Personal Wardrobe Stylist that works with individuals in San Diego. I work within many different budgets, including my own as a newlywed!!

Ladies, please remind yourselves that even though we may not have the unlimited budget they do, this does not mean that the rest of us need to settle for boring, frumpy, & stuck in the past looks!

One of your most inexpensive and best weapons, in the war of style, is a good tailor!
Find the best one in your city and take old pieces to him. They can even change the shape to create you a completely different looking piece!

Remember also that color goes a long way! Make it an '08 resolution to band black most days! Reserve black for formal events or special dates and indulge yourself in the world of color!

Keep it classic
Keep it feminine
Be Beautiful!
