If it has anything to do with looking put together & being comfortable with the minimal effort needed on any occasion,
I'M YOUR GIRL
Personal Stylist & Professional Image Consultant
IT TAKES MORE THAN JUST CLOTHES...
IF YOU DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO PAIR THEM,
YOU'LL BE UNHAPPY ON HOW YOU LOOK!
In a blink of an eye,(or at least it seems that way) your body, career, or maybe even your marital status changed, and so does your lifestyle.
Whatever used to work before doesn't make sense now.
You feel like there is a fashion hole that you have fallen into-- clothing is not made with your age group in mind, you say.
The clothing you’d like to wear is made for a younger age group
( ..nice top. Wait. Nevermind is cropped- sounds familiar?), and the clothes that are offered for you, look boring and boxy.
Your solution...You buy from the same stores and risk looking like the store billboard.
Let’s face it, the 40s, 50s + isn’t what it was when we were growing up.
That is when I come into the room
( Kramer from Seinfeld style)
...no, I’m not being conceited, seriously that's my nickname..short for Fabiana
Now imagine being called with my latte order at Starbucks ☕️
They must say- who does this lady think she is...
One more fun fact, did you noticed my last name?
Totoli - which makes me TOTALLY FAB?!
Wow! ...Hokay...now I'm being obnoxious!
MY THOUGHTS ON STYLE
I’m inspired by my Milanese effortless elegance background, and the expertise I gained with over the two decades in the fashion industry, of course, has a big influence on how I get dressed, but mainly I ground myself in expressing how I feel, and what I am, not impressing of how in fashion I am!
Living by this mantra is freeing and I’m able to use my clothes to show my creativity, values, and personality, without worry about the judgment of others.
Fashion has been my career even before I went to Law school, and what I’ve always been known for, you can say it runs in my veins.
After 16yrs building and running a successful jewelry + accessories business, I decided to venture beyond accessories, and help women over 40 with their personal style and professional image.
YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT
I’m not your average stylist
I do things differently, I believe in simplifying things, teaching viable strategies and tactics that you can start to use right away, because, if you’re anything like me, you need results fast and that work for you - not on paper, fashion should be fun -
And since I’m being candid... I don't believe in making you dependent on my services, once you learn, you’ll be able to adapt to your future needs, and I bet you’ll share my name with all the people that compliment you, right?
IT ALL STARTED WITH A PROBLEM
You see, most women dress to hide their flaws, forgetting to give a focal point (your assets) that you want people to look at -and that is not only sad but makes getting dressed boring and hard to keep up.
I like to focus on using your natural traits found in your body, lifestyle, values, and personality and mimic them in your clothes. Which will almost instantly make sense once you learn the strategy and the know-how.
Because when you highlight something you like, you focus on the positive and these so-called "flaws" are not the first things you will see
This is my favorite part...I love the reactions I get… "oh, that’s why I like to wear this blouse” or “that’s why these pants don't look good on me, I get it now!”
I live for that!
I don't say that rules are made to be broken, per se, but there’s sure nothing wrong with bending them a bit - at least when it comes to fashion!
I ask “why” a lot, especially when I know things could’ve been done in a simpler and easier way without sacrificing the results - it needs to get grounded by my European style philosophy:
Effortless + Versatile + Comfortable + Practical
I believe in creating a versatile wardrobe with pieces that can take you from Trader Joes to last-minute dinners with friends, solving the “I have nothing to wear” issues once and for all.
It's never about quantity, it's about maximizing what you have and being creative.
My methodology and strategists work, even if you think you have no idea of what is in Fashion, or how to combine colors.
I'm obsessed with figuring out how to help women over 40 - feel good while looking good.
I want to help you feel comfortable while looking amazing.
