I recently worked as both an assistant for a fashion correspondent at a major news network and as a stylist for a luxury boutique. Working for the news was an absolute dream - picking gorgeous designer clothes to feature, dressing models, writing fashion articles, and even waking up at 5:00 am to be on set by 6:00 was thrilling. Working as a stylist (a glorified term for a salesgirl), however, was a different story. Let's be honest, when a customer walks into a store, the girls helping her are going to do their absolute best to sell her some clothing. And the thing is, you can't really blame them for trying. However, after months of watching the girls I worked with encourage trusting women to buy, say, a too-tight pair of Hudson jeans, or an ill-fitting silk Joie jersey top in an effort to get a bigger commission, I decided to create a space where women could come to get style advice without worrying about being misguided. That's where The Big Red Scarf comes in. I'm here to give you all of my styling tips, which you can be confident are my true and honest opinions.

Information about nutrition, fitness, cultural events, and the occasional miscellaneous tidbit. After all, this blog is called The Big Red Scarf (as opposed to The Little Black Dress) for a reason - every woman should be vibrant and unique in her own right, not an imprint of those around her. A fantastic wardrobe, (although fun), is not enough to make a woman stand out as she should. A happy, healthy, and educated lifestyle are key additions, and this blog is intended to help you on your way.
