Tailor And Stylist: A Poetic Closet from Yours Truly

Dec 8, 2012 by

I’m so excited to finally share with you a project that I’ve poured my heart and styling into, and now we are celebrating the grand opening!  Tailor and Stylist is an online boutique featuring a tightly edited collection of feminine, flattering, and nostalgic clothing.  As many of you know, I’ve worked as a photo stylist for the last eight years with credits in magazines, catalogs, and national ad campaigns, but what you may not know is that my husband was one of the youngest tailors to ever work on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, designing bespoke wardrobes for celebrities and even royalty.  Combining our love for fashion and nostalgia, we’ve teamed up to launch the aptly named Tailor and Stylist, which brings high-styled, well-tailored clothing to you – all at affordable prices.

I think you’ll see my vintage decor aesthetic throughout the collection, lookbook, and photos.  You might also recognize a few of the vintage decor stars from Poetic Home.  I’m so proud to share the Tailor and Stylist lookbook, which was inspired by my favorite poem, “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost.

Here are some of the fun “Poetic Home” inspired pictures that I styled for our website.  Oh, but of course I had to repurpose my library card catalog for those shopping the Tailor and Stylist “shoe catalog”.

And I couldn’t resist having some of my favorite pieces from my vintage typewriter collection enjoy a moment in the spotlight too.  Here’s a photo from our “Find Your Shoe Type” concept, starring an Olivetti Valentine and Red Royal Quiet De Luxe. I promise no typewriters were harmed in the production of the photos.  :)

And why would a girl need a purse when she could accessorize with an Olivetti Valentine?  I thought this iconic typewriter fit well with our Broadway Bound Jacket and Polka Dot Tights and Red Velvet Art Deco stilettos.  What do you think?

And here are some of my favorite looks from our in-studio shoot, including our adorable Take a Bow Peplum Dress, which is a modern take on the style of the roaring 1920s.

Our Kingston Glamour Dress is just waiting to make a memorable statement at any holiday party this year!

And last but not least, my version of 50 Shades of Grey featuring our Pure Elegant Pleated Maxi Skirt, which coincidentally or not, also happens to be the monochrome it color of the season.

And now the best part – exclusive coupon codes just for Poetic Home readers!  Use code DressPoetic for 20% off through December 17th.  And the first 10 Poetic Home friends will also get a free gift of our antiqued namesake tailor scissors necklace!

I would absolutely love to hear what you think, and if you would like to host a giveaway or coupon code on your blog, please just let me know.  I would deeply, sincerely appreciate my Poetic Home friends helping to spread the word about Tailor and Stylist, a poetic closet from yours truly.

    Hmm. The code isn’t working.
