Introducing Joon + Co., High End Style With a Conscience

Style Logic has been a huge part of my life these past few years, starting as a simple creative outlet and ending as a local style hub for West Michiganders. While it has been fun and definitely educational, I'm sad to say it's going to get put on the side burner for a bit. Joon+Co., the new, online shop I'm opening early Fall 2017 will sell a beautiful array of high end ethically made and responsibly sourced items with a clean, modern aesthetic.

Lee & Birch: A West Michigan Leader in Style, Selection, and Service

In West Michigan, there are just some must-visit places that you need to see. Founders for the beer lovers, Lake Michigan for the water lovers, and Lee & Birch for the fashion lovers. From their fun fashion shows and gorgeous photo shoots to their frequent participation in charity events and local collaborations, this is a boutique serves as an inspiration and leader to the style community in West Michigan. They are well known, well respected, and their selection is one of the best I've seen in the area.

Leigh's: A Luxury Fashion Haven Nestled in Breton Village

There comes a point in every girl's life when you just need a little luxury. Enter: Leigh's. Whether it's the touch of a luxe wool, breathtakingly elegant formalwear, or the impeccable service, when you enter the store, located in the ever-growing Breton Village near the corner of Breton and Burton, you can't help but feel a bit pampered. You could easily spend a few hours just browsing the upscale selection they provide. The whole team involved in the shoot was in awe of the amount of items in the store, and how nice everything was. It truly was an amazing day getting to style looks from such a beautiful and luxurious store. We hope you like the looks!

Introducing Personal Styling from Style Logic

I've always loved fashion, the materials, designs, models, trends, everything about it. I get the same rush shopping for designer handbags that I think some people get from extreme sports, and instead of playing outside or hanging out with friends, I spent a lot of my childhood drawing "the girl" in various outfits. I just love the self-expression you achieve by dressing a certain way and how when you combine beauty, clothing, accessories and attitude, you can create a work of art.

Mia's: Eastown's Most Glamorously Eclectic Boutique

First of all, Happy Halloween everyone! If you grew up like me, playing dress up for hours, sometimes days on end, you should definitely hear over to Mia's Dress Boutique on Wealthy st. in Grand Rapids. This shoot was a tough one to style in the time given, simply because of how many fun and unique pieces they carry. They have everything from formal dresses and sets to casual separates and novelty accessories, so when it came time to narrow my selection down to 3 or 4 looks, it was really tough. I hope you love these looks as much as I do!

Alyssa Ferguson: On Turning Dahlias, Determination and Dreams into Reality

Let me tell you ladies and gents, I am not an easily impressed person. I hold my friends, family and myself to very high standards and have a low tolerance for laziness and complacency. I realize how few of you reading this are now getting in line to be my next BFF, but the result is a group of amazingly kind, loyal and dedicated people. I hold kindness above all other traits and consider passion a pre-requisite before investing much time in a person, professionally. When I came in contact with Alyssa Ferguson (pronounced Ah-Lee-Sah), she checked both of those boxes instantly, and I was impressed. I was also very excited to meet another person who wrote as thorough and as detailed emails as me. We were introduced through a mutual contact and ended up collaborating on the Shop Local photoshoot at Jade. She provided the beautiful florals including living succulent accessories and a gorgeous flower crown, and helped style the looks in our most recent Shop Local with Mia's photo shoot, post coming soon. She is quite the "jane" of all trades, with some serious skills in floral design. Read on to learn more about this incredibly hard working and creative woman. Prepare to be inspired.

Jade: Rockford's Beautifully Boho-Chic Boutique

I've always considered myself a city girl. I don't like grass, dirt, insects or just being outdoors in general, so in 2014 when my husband and I moved up to Rockford, MI, somewhere known for its bike trails and farms, people were a bit surprised. To be honest, I really enjoyed seeing green again after living in an apartment in downtown Grand Rapids for the previous year. Our current home and neighborhood in Rockford are so beautiful and we feel very blessed to be here. When I started doing the Shop Local series for the blog, I wanted to feature some of the great boutiques up here in downtown Rockford since we actually have a pretty great selection. I also wanted to do something in a different style than the previous shoots at Denym and Humanity Boutique. That is when I thought of Jade, one of the most popular boutiques in the area, that has a very unique, modern yet bohemian style selection.

Erick Gerson: Meet the Man Behind the Makeup

Back in 2012 when my hubby and I were getting hitched, I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted a makeup artist or not. I was pretty good at doing my own makeup, proud, in fact, for how far I'd come since my Drew Carey Show, Mimi days. Then, I came across Erick Gerson. He came highly recommended and was very responsive to emails and questions that I had, which is and was important me. I checked out his website and portfolio and I was very impressed with his work, so I booked him, and as you can guess, this is where our story begins. Let me introduce you all to the man, the legend and the makeup that is Erick Gerson Rodriguez

The Daily Look Experience: Part 2

I am happy to say that my Daily Look Elite Box was a grand improvement over the Stitch Fix box I received. The clothes were higher quality, much more on-trend and my style, and really just a tad bit more than the Stitch Fix selections. They actually have their own label, which they don't make very obvious, especially when you order the Elite Box, but you can browse their own label here from their Shop page. It's a little irritating that they keep this somewhat hidden because, just like Stitch Fix's exclusive labels, you have no way to compare the prices. 

Humanity Boutique: A Local Style Gem that's Making a Difference

Humanity Boutique has everything from flared jeans and kimonos to wedding guest attire and one-of-a kind statement pieces. The small but style packed boutique also carries a wide variety of beautiful jewelry and accessories along with a small selection of plus size styles. They also have an online store where you can shop what's in-store and some online exclusives. They offer free shipping on orders over $75, so if you're like me and would rather shop in your pjs, you can still support a local business without having to actually get dressed. #winning

The DAILYLOOK Experience: Part 1

This is the second of many posts that I will do, personally evaluating and walking through various personal shopping subscriptions, so stay tuned for more. If you missed the first shopping service featured in this series, The Stitch Fix Experience, check out Part 1 where I walk you through step by step what it takes to get started with your first box, and Part 2, a detailed review of what my stylist picked out for me. While the service wasn't terrible, this time around, I wanted something with a bit more luxury and more on trend that was still approachable by the low maintenance working gal. So, let's all cross our fingers and see what happens next with DAILYLOOK.

The Stitch Fix Experience: Part 2

Well, I did it. I let somebody else shop for me <shudders>. How was it, you ask? Well, if everybody's boxes were as off-the-mark, low quality and quickly thrown together as mine, then I'm honestly not sure how Stitch Fix has become so popular. I'm thinking that either the efficiancy of the service makes up for the lack of quality or that my case is an exception. I know so many people who use this shopping service and love it that this can't be the norm. Once I scheduled my fix I got the typical confirmation email with links to communicate things to my stylist, and about 4 days after that, I got another email letting me know that my stylist was about to start styling my box for me and letting me edit the note that I didn't leave for my stylist. I was going to mention that this was for a blog post, but thought it'd be more interesting to see how they do without knowing that.

Denym: The Grand Rapids Authority on Premium Denim and Casual Chic

If you haven't stopped by downtown Grand Rapids' West side lately, you need to. The area, which used to be pretty run down and desolate, is now flourishing.

Among them is the men's and women's casual-chic boutique, Denym.
