Behind The Brand: Introducing LoHo-Your New Favorite Tights

“I want to change the way women feel in tights, and feel about themselves.”

You know that feeling you get when you meet someone new and you know you just click? More related to this post is that feeling when you meet someone and know they are about to inspire you in ways you only dreamed.

Darrah Christel, CEO, Founder (and all around #GirlBoss) of Seattle-based Loho and I had been liking each other’s photos on Instagram and connecting over motivational quotes over the past few months. We met up at a Starbucks this past weekend and talked for over two hours. As soon as she approached me, I could  feel the good vibes radiating from her!

It was inspiring to simply listen to her open up about her struggles with body image, her relentless journey to find a product she whole-heartedly believes will change the way women feel about their curves, and her passion for instilling that self-confidence into others around her. Yeah, she’s the real deal. Read her post on Medium here.

She gave me the product to try out and guys…you know I am totally transparent in my product recommendations and please believe me when I say that these are the most comfortable damn tights I have EVER slid into. Yes, SLID because I effortlessly pulled these tights over my legs, hips, and waist. And guess what? They stayed there! After a few hours, the only time they came down was when I had to use the restroom. I have always been an avid tight wearer, especially in the colder months. Who doesn’t love a fabulous sweater dress, leather boots, and some fun tights in the fall? I’ve tried other brands like HUE and DKNY, but they have always snagged so easily forcing me to toss the whole pair in the trash. The secret is the patented lace waistband that flares out and away from your body and the genius silicone backing. The lace featured in mine is sample lace. 


“…when you find a pair of tights that aren’t designed to suck you in, and instead meet your body where it’s at, something crazy happens: you start to love your curves.”

LOHO™ is currently taking pre-orders through iFundWomen, a crowdfunding platform for women-led businesses. Their tights will be available for pre-order until October 31, so head over to her page and order yourself a pair, two, three, or simply donate if you would like to see Darrah’s project come to life. More styles and colors to come if we all help in reaching this goal! Thank you to Loho for sponsoring this post. All opinions are solely my own.



Introducing: Rebecca Minkoff x Stella & Dot!

One of the many fashion collaborations that I am incredibly excited for this fashion season (besdies The  Weeknd x H&M), is the Rebecca Minkoff x Stella & Dot 6-piece fall collection!

*I do want to disclose that I am a stylist for Stella & Dot in addition to my full-time job, so I am a little biased but it’s only because I absolutely adore and recommend!*

Rebecca Minkoff’s background as an entrepreneur and American businesswoman parallels Stella & Dot’s vision of affordable and chic accessories for the modern woman; it’s pretty much the perfect collaboration. Many magazines and press outlets are agreeing. You can read the story in US Magazine here or Brit+Co’s thoughts here.

Rebecca worked with our CCO Blythe Harris to create six unique jewelry pieces that are feminine and just the right touch of edgy.

We wanted to give a distinctive, feminine strength to the collection by juxtaposing the innate elegance of jewels against statement silhouettes.”

The best part may just be that they’re all priced between $49-$69! You can browse the gallery below and visit my stylist shop here!

1. Cameron Charm Choker – $59- Five hand-set pave charms perfectly spaced on a delicate shiny gold choker. My favorite is the little triangle! Such a fun layering piece.


2. Emory Pave Earring Set – $49 – Hand-set pave stones placed on subtly-stated silhouettes. Pave bars fit through pierced ears, and then line upwards on the lobes. Malleable ends make these beautiful bars stay in place. Add the X midi cuff by sliding up from the lobe to the middle part of your ear. How gorgeous are these? Such a unique way to make a statement.


3. Celestial Ear Climbers -$49 –  Shiny gold ear climbers line the earlobes with cascading celestial accents. I am a sucker for anything celestial with stars and moons, so I am all over this ear climber. Pair this with the celestial choker (available in gold and silver), a chunky knit sweater, and some thigh-high boots.


4. Pixie Studs – $49 A feminine medley of color fans out beneath a geometric setting. These statement studs add a subtle pop to any outfit. I love this style of earring because even with all of the different colors, it is still sitting so timeless on the ear. Incredibly classy.


5. Pixie Chandeliers – $59 –  Mixing glamorous sparkle with a chic waterfall. A feminine frame holds beautiful neutral and green tones with accents of vintage gold. I love chandelier earrings with a more rustic metal base because you can throw up your hair in a bun, apply some red lipstick, and you look so put-together with almost no effort!


6. Pixie Choker- $69 –  Make a modern statement with this double choker. Iridescent sparkle, set in vintage gold, sits closely to the neck while a geometric pendant nests seamlessly below.
