Breaking it down: Life, fashion, and styling

Life…fashion…styling… Three things that are pretty darn essential. That is, if you’re at all interested in making the most of what you’ve got here on planet Earth…

Life:

There’s living, and then there’s living. And let me just tell ya…L & F Clothing Boutique is all for living. Cute clothes are THE SHIZ, but this charming online shop is more than that. Jessica Shelter, the talented woman who runs this business, believes in giving back. She does work for boutiques aside from her own. She helps promote a non profit boutique just out of the goodness of her heart. That made me want to buy EVEN MORE items from her boutique.

(Like my dress?? Get it here.)

While we took pictures, it was scorching hot. I was sweating, and I know that Jessica was, too. Not even batting an eye, she stood there and snapped pictures until she got the one that she wanted (and that had the best lighting AND the most flattering angle). I must say, I may have come off as quite the wimp. And the worst part…we were in the shade! The performance that I saw yesterday was an example of working in a harsh condition. You’re a better person than I am, Jessica. Bravo.

We meandered around until we came to the perfect alley way. Not only was it in the shade and had phenomenal lighting, but it provided darling scenery for a darling photo.

Fashion:

All (ok, MOST) of us strive to make good fashion choices. Jessica works not only on her OWN fashion, but the fashion of others. How…sweet…is…that. I barely notice if my right shoe matches my left one.

I mean it when I say that L & F Boutique has something for everybody. Even for ME! I’m not an easy person to shop for…I’m 5’10 and half of my height is from my legs! Don’t get me wrong, a lot of the times I like my legs, but even MORE often, I wish I was just a pocket sized being like a lot of my friends. On the very first page of Jessica’s boutique, I found this dress. With this sucker, I don’t have to pull it down every 5 seconds or tug at it awkwardly when I sit down. Believe me when I say…that’s not something I easily come by…

Styling:

I met Jessica in my denim jacket. I said, “oh, sorry, I’ll take this off!” She said, “no, keep it on, we could do something cute with this!” Right away, she was helping style me. She’s good at it, and that’s why she made it her job.

Styling an outfit isn’t a talent that everyone has. Some people have the special touch (hey Jessica!!) and some people don’t. That’s where a boutique like this one (or if you’re really lucky, Jessica, herself 😆) comes in handy.

Check out her boutique, and start feeling great TODAY! You won’t regret it.
