Taking Flight

One of my favorite quotes is…

“What if I Fall? Oh but my darling what if you fly?”

It’s all about taking chances in life. I constantly think about this with my business. As scary as failure is, you have to try something in order to succeed. A fashion risk is a less risky chance to take. The worse that can happen is you look back and hate an outfit you wore a year ago.

So instead of playing it safe, try flying with two trends this season: the feather skirt and the cape (my Express one is now 40% off!). I went with an all black look for a slimming effect, lengthening my torso with a sleeveless turtleneck. Red lips and gold accents make the look party ready for the holidays.
