Today marks the beginning of the Fall series of Fashionista Fridays! For the next 5 weeks we’ll be bringing you coordinating fashions from GAP and Old Navy – but really, these ideas will translate to any stores. It’s all about coordinating colors, not the actual clothing items themselves. Learning to mix colors and blending in a single color palette so that YOU are the focus of your family portrait and not your clothing  – it’s an art and a science and I’m here to help.

Using the palette boxes on the left, you can see exactly what colors to use for accessories and be sure to keep bottoms very simple. Brown, khaki, black, navy, or denim. TADA!

While our nation remembered the 8th anniversary of the tragedies in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC on September 11, 2009, the friends and family of  R.P. celebrated her investiture as a cantor at Sun Lakes All Faith Chapel in Phoenix. For all in attendance, perhaps especially the Jewish war veterans, something good and light on such a dark day raised spirits even more than usual.
