Inquiring Minds Want to Know...

Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a great week so far - it's Thursday! Whoohoo! I love Thursdays because they're so close to Friday, which means it's nearly the weekend. It's nice to have something to look forward to, don't you think?

So, for the late Thursday night/Friday post, we're going to do something different. We'll be conducting an interview with Kelly McPheters, Personal Stylist for Nordstrom and will be posting it right here. We're super excited about this, but we also want to know, what would you like to know? Do you have any questions you'd like us to ask Kelly? Are there any style conundrums you've been wanting to get addressed? Any services you want the fine print on? Or maybe you're curious about what the life of a Personal Stylist is like? If you've got a question let us know. Our interview is scheduled to take place at about 12:30 PM PST, so if there is something you'd like to ask, leave us a comment by then.

Here's Kathryn's OOTD, in one of the happiest places on earth:

Dress: Anthropologie "Maeshowe Dress" by Moulinette Soeurs
Tights: Frenchi Ribbed Sweater Tights in Heather Grey
Belt: Snakebite Belt
Boots: Frye
Earrings: Oh, Hello Friend
Castle: Sleeping Beauty, Disneyland, Anaheim, CA

Kathryn here - I just wanted to add a little note about the Maeshowe dress. When Carol showed me this dress over instant messenger back in the Fall of 2009, I honestly didn't think too much of it at the time. (what with my fear of prints and all...) But then she happened to be wearing it when we met up with Kelly for Customer Appreciation Night, and I couldn't take my eyes off the dress. This was the dress that inspired me to try wearing prints again, and I get tons of compliments whenever I wear it. It's so much prettier on than it is on the hanger. I've styled it here very much like how Carol was wearing it that December day - with grey tights, boots and a belt.) It was a little tough, walking around Disneyland in this outfit...but I actually didn't know I'd be going to Disneyland after work. Haha! But hey, what a fun place to take an OOTD photo, eh? Anyway, all that to say...I love this dress!

  1. I love that dress. I just purchased the Rainforest version in green and LOVE it. Sorry I missed out on this color combo, but the style is still the same and it looks super cute with boots. I hope to wear it next week when it's warm enough for short sleeve, but not for full on bare legs :)

  2. I'm curious about the hours of a personal stylist- do they work as a stylist full time? How do they acquire clients? Does the store they work for attract clients for them or do they seek clients on their own?
    Thanks- looking forward to the interview!

  3. What a great dress - I wanted it for the longest time but held out for the sale. And of course, when it finally went on sale, my size range was gone in a hurry. It looks great with the boots and tights combo.

  4. I have that dress and wore it for the first time a couple of weeks ago when weather got warm enough for short sleeves. I loved it on the model in the catalog, but I love prints. In person I wasn't too sure until I tried it on.

  5. Love that dress! How does it fit? Did Carol get it in a petite size?

  6. This dress is a super easy dress to wear. I actually got it in a size 4, because at the time I bought it, I was still just a few months out from having given birth to Kate, and was still carrying a bit of my pregnancy weight. It's a little big on me now, but I think it can still work - this is one of those dresses that look weird when it's on the smaller side (I remember that from when I was trying it on before purchase at the store. It's better to go a little big with it, than to go too small. That being said, I think that if I am successful at losing the few pounds of baby-weight that I'm carrying, I'll probably need to find a way to have it taken in a bit, because then it'll be too baggy.
