It's happened to all of us. We put together a great outfit, and then it comes to our shoes. We look in our closet and well, there just isn't the right pair, no matter how many we might have! So, we wear whatever we think will work. But it doesn't. And we know it.  And as we walk out the door, now totally bummed about what was going to be a fabulous head-to-toe look... we vow to never let this happen again!

This weekend kicks off the beginning of summer! And many of us have been spending the past few months -- except for an occasional blizzard getting in the way -- planting flowers, putting in vegatable gardens, mowing lawns, watering, cleaning the grill, and getting the outdoor furniture ready to enjoy. And because of that, our lawns, yards and patios look fabulous!

Don't worry that you didn't make it to Coachella. It's almost summertime and that means concerts! So we thought we'd better start...oh yeah...putting together a roadmap for our fav summer concert outfit pieces and inspirations. Which won't be hard because this season's fashions have lots of Boho-Chic-I-Love-Music looks.

Gone are the days when Moms told their daughters to make sure their dresses or skirts always hit just below the knee or to never wear earrings with denim! No more! In celebration of Mother's Day we at My Style Genie wanted to share the fashion advise that the Modern Mom gives and hopes her daughter listens!

It's May 1st so please (!) can we safely say that Spring has finally sprung? Even though it's still a little frosty in parts of the US of A,  here at My Style Genie we say peel off the layers and start stepping into this season's amazing array of fashion styles and trends. Bold stripes, lush florals and hipster crochet.

Here at My Style Genie we're all about style and body shape dressing. (Of course.) But not just for apparel, meaning apparel isn't the only thing that body shape dressing is about. Don't forget accessories! It's super important that you're not just wearing the best dress, skirt or jacket for your body shape, but the right shoes, jewelry and handbags too!

Let's do a quick refresher! Last week we talked about shopping on a budget by looking at the benefits of buying both affordable and investment pieces for your wardrobe styling. This week, let's look at creative wardrobe management and how not to be "the outfit shopper" -- it's costly and chances are the "outfit" only gets worn once, sometimes never.

Style is an interesting word because it has so many meanings. It can mean the fashion of the moment, a particular fashion, a way of doing things, a type or sort, like "what type of shoes." And shopping for style, well, that's just as interesting because there are lots of motivations and consequences related to our process of shopping for style. Right? All we have to do is remember a few gi-normous "shopping for style spree" credit card bills to know this is totally true. Which is why we wanted to give youa few shopping tips.

We all know that once the first day of April hits that wedding season is right around the corner. Whether you're the bride, maid of honor, bridesmaid, mother, father-of-the-bride, or guest....“Yikes!” is usually in order.

Spring Fashion Trends for 2013 (via The Los Angeles Fashion)

In a few short weeks, the clocks will change, the snow will begin to melt, and the first signs of Spring will be imminent. In anticipation of a fresh new season, it’s fun to look ahead at the spring fashion trends that we get to enjoy this year. From bold prints to understated elegance, there’s…

There may have been a blizzard in New York but the fashionistas were out in full force. And fall fashion is looking pretty good. Here are the top fashion trends from New York Fall/Winter 2013.

Any true fashionista knows that ski resorts are only partially about skiing. The best part about a fab ski town (Vail, Sun Valley, Banff, Stowe) are the after parties. Resort towns are known to get fun and frisky after hours. But even if you are serious about skiing that’s no reason to look like a frump on the slopes. You can look stylish while you’re whizzing past everyone like the master ski bunny you are.

Winter can be moderately fun up until the holidays. After all you've got turkey, presents, and general festiveness to look forward to. But come January when it's 19 below (or an arctic 45 if you're in L.A. And yes we're jealous) chances are you just want to get away from the dreary weather. So cast off that giant bubble coat! What could be better than a beach vacay? Even if you don't live the coldest of climes, you still need a reason to shop the resort collections.

While the rest of us are still bundling into our woolly layers and fending off January’s cold snaps, spring/summer collections are rolling out and we couldn’t be more excited for the bright bursts of color to ward off the mid-winter blahs.

Beauty in 3 Minutes! In 2013 let’s resolve to spend an extra 3 minutes on beauty  EVERYDAY and taking care of ourselves.  All of us are going to set our alarms back 3 minutes.  Here is the caveat. The three minutes cannot be used for anything other than BEAUTY. No checking extra e-mails, no cleaning, organizing, or other stuff.

If you’re of a certain age, you may remember the Color Me Beautiful book (and craze) of the 1980s. Women and men flocked to this unique color analysis, holding scarves up to their faces to check their skin tone, hair and eye color against the shades associated with spring, summer, fall and winter.

Fit is “it”

No matter what the “next big thing” is, no matter the season or occasion, there’s just one basic fashion deal-maker (or breaker): the fit of the clothes.

You’re not still comparing yourself to those Photoshopped models in the fashion mags, are you?

Next week is a BIG week for My Style Genie. We're officially launching in private beta on January 11th AND we're debuting our retail solution at a National Retail Federation (NRF) insider's party on January 13th. We're SO excited. I thought it would be fun to use My Style Genie and create looks from the National Retailers and Leading brands that will be at the party and to have our members and fans vote on which look I should wear to the party. Check out the looks & VOTE now on Facebook!

The great thing about the “Can’t Live Without” Career Wardrobe is that so many of the pieces work all year round. Like the classic white button-down blouse or the black cotton/silk blend cardigan. But because we’ve just finished up with the gift giving holidays and shopping and shopping and shopping some more, it’s easy to forget that many of the major retailers – we just shopped, right?
