Men’s Style and Why it Matters

Sol Reflection

Men, y’all have personal style too. So then why’s it so hard to find something that makes you feel both confident and stylish? Men tell me finding their personal style often looks like choosing between a button down and well…a button down.  As a man you want to impress a love interest, a group of … Read More

You’re So Vain

Sol Reflection

Last week, I had a conversation with girlfriends about whether or not we’d ever get cosmetic surgery. It was incredible because we got to talk openly about our fantasies related to things we would change or augment about our physical appearance. It was a FREEING, to say the least. No shame. No judgement (of self or others). … Read More

When Are You “Too Old” to Wear That?

Sol Reflection

I’m going to be honest with you about this, but before I am, repeat after me: I make the rules. Say it again for the people in the back. IIIIIIIIII MAKE THE RULES.  It’s true. When it comes to our own personal style, we each get to make our own, unique, personal rules. Yet I’m … Read More

DENIAL

Sol Reflection

These are my very favorite denim shorts, converted from Lucky Brand jeans after years of wear.

How to Conduct a Successful Closet Inventory

But until you’re ready to … Read More

The 80/20 Rule

Sol Reflection, Style

Happy Thanksgiving ALL! Want to know what a turkey & your personal style have in common?! They’re both classic! I have a serious opinion that a good personal style contains a certain percentage of classic pieces. 80% to be exact. I call it the 80/20 rule. 80% classic.* 20% fun, trendy, fluff.** The 80/20 rule … Read More

Letting Go to Make Space

Stretch Your Style, Style

Everyone has their favorite “go-to” clothes in their wardrobe. These are the clothes that you love the most – and wear the most – for a number of reasons that could include their uniqueness, how they look on you, the color / cut / style or some other similar reason. So, what happens with the … Read More
