My Bio

Hi, I’m Stylish Stepmom!
My two favorite things to do, well, three, depending on how you count them is being a stepmom to an adorable, heart melting, little boy…fashion and…shopping! Wait, I guess I can’t count, because I, also, really enjoy being a wife to my handsome hubby! But, you get where I’m going, right?
As I start a new phase in my life, I took some time to reflect on where I am RIGHT NOW and what I love the most….being a stepmom and keeping up on the latest fashion crazes, as well as being a total shopaholic! So, I combined my favorite things and created “Stylish Stepmom”!
Ever since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with fashion (which also includes SHOPPING)! I grew up in a small town in rural Minnesota, but because our town was so small, we had to shop in “bigger” towns…like Minneapolis/St. Paul, which was a REALLY BIG “town” to me at the time. I LOVED shopping in “the cities”! I always wanted the “latest and greatest”, knowing that I would probably stick out like a “sore thumb” in my hometown, but, I WANTED IT. Kids at school used to “name” my outfits, because they always stood out amongst the sweatshirts, tshirts, and jeans, that were clothing staples where I grew up. From there, I even managed to find a way where you could get a college degree from having a love for fashion by graduating with a B.S. in Fashion Merchandising and Business. How awesome is that!!!
I have spent my life in and out of the fashion/retail world that ranges from retail store level to the retail corporate buying level and everything in between. It has taken me to different cities and states throughout the U.S. I have past (as well as present) experience as a model, which brings me into the fashion world on a whole different level. I spent a few years, which included MANY hours throughout the days AND nights as a fashion/accessory model for ShopNBC, as well as various print, “live”, and commercial work. Throughout my life, no matter where I was living and what I was doing it was tied to the fashion/retail world.
My goal is to become your online “personal” fashion consultant. I want to help you take the “guess work” out of what to wear, how to wear it, new trends, sales, and savings. I hope you can take 5 minutes out of your day to read my blogs, learn something new, and, possibly, even have a laugh or two along the way.
Stylish Stepmom wants you staying stylish…one STEP at a time!

Consulting Services

Are you taking advantage of my online information, but, could use a little more guidance? Are you looking to enhance your own personal style? Provide a group/business with specific wardrobe information/guidelines? Need a “Girlfriend’s Get Together” where I will host an event for you and your friends? Are you a non-profit that is planning a women’s event and/or fashion show and don’t know where to start?

Take a look at my “outline” of services:

Closet Clean-Up
Do you have clothes in your closet with the price tags on them? Never worn, because you don’t know what to wear with that item. Do you have clothes that you insist on keeping, because you just “MIGHT” wear it again? Or do you have a ton of tops and bottoms, but have NO IDEA how to mix and match to gain additional wardrobe options? This is the service for you! I will work with you to “clean-up” your closet. Get rid of items that don’t fit properly and are out-of-date. Mix and match your current items to create “outfits” and expand your wardrobe opportunities.

Closet Clean-Up Plus
This would include the “Closet Clean-Up” service, as well as taking the “outfit creation” one step further by creating a photo album of outfits from your closet and/or information of how to mix and match your existing items.

Personal Shopper
Do you have a big job interview and have no idea what to wear? Or are you a bride-to-be and/or mother-of-the-bride and want additional help in finding the perfect dress? Maybe, you just don’t like to shop, but need to, and want a second opinion on what to buy, how to create a look, etc. Let me help you find the right pieces at the right places and save you time!

Girlfriend Get Togethers
Do you need some time with your girlfriend where you can kick back, have some fun, do a little shopping, and learn some new tips and tricks? Let me do all the work in “customizing” and hosting an informal event, at a location of your choice, for you and your girlfriends.

Man’s Meeting
Typically, fashion and shopping go hand in hand with women. BUT, there are men that are interested in enhancing their personal style (or SHOULD enhance their personal style? Sorry, guys!). If you are one of those men that would like to enhance their personal style, get some basic wardrobe tips for business and/or casual wear, as well as just have some fun developing your own personal style, then contact me!

Contact me for fashion/shopping/personal image content for your website, newspaper, magazine, or business/group newsletter! I would be happy to provide you with content that is helpful and entertaining to your readers!

Are you part of a group, association, and/or business that would be interested in hosting a workshop/seminar for all parties involved? Topics vary and can be customized to the specific needs of the group/business. Brown Bag Seminars (lunch) are a fun, informal way to present information without taking too much time away from the employee’s day!

Fashion Shows/Women’s Event
Are you an association, group, or non-profit organization looking to raise money, create awareness, or have a fun event for your members via a fashion show or women’s fashion/shopping/seminar event? Let me handle all the details of the fashion show/event for you, so you can focus on other priorities and when it is time for the fashion show/event, you can sit back, RELAX and ENJOY!

Please contact me for more information on my services, bookings, and rates. Give me the chance to customize my services to best fit your needs! I want to save you time and money WHILE staying stylish! Let’s have some fun!
