What a Freakin Fabulous #StyleChat with Clinton Kelly

Macy’s at Lenox Mall recently hosted a #stylechat with Clinton Kelly and it was freakin fabulous.  I attended the event with my mother and I was looking forward to get a few style tips. My mother already has fabulous style but she wanted to learn more about the trends for this Fall.

One thing I wasn’t expecting to get from the #stylechat was a good laugh.  I never realized that Clinton Kelly was so funny.  From the beginning of the event to the end he had  the ladies in the audience laughing.

Clinton had lots of style tips for women on fall trends, the importance of wearing proper fitting pieces as well some big no no’s in fashion.  The biggest no no in fashion that he mentioned was that if you have thick ankles that you shouldn’t wear shoes with straps around the ankle because it only makes ankles and legs appear bigger.  He recommends that if you want a shoe to look sexy, sleek and chic you should wear a shoe with a color that is very close to your skin tone.

The holidays are coming and that means lots of parties.  Clinton says remember that the holidays are all about fun, so remember to stand out and shine. What better way to shine then SEQUINS, SEQUINS, SEQUINS.  So find a dress, blouse or bag with lots of SEQUINS and Shine baby!

Also remember to really amp up your jewelry, make sure that you wear a big statement piece on at least one part of your body.

I learned a lot at this event, and it’s given me a lot to think about when shopping and dressing for events.  If you needs some tips too, reach out to Clinton on twitter.

What a fun event! Macy's at Lenox is my favorite store in the city. Because it is such a high volume store everything goes on sale so fast.

Love Clinton Kelly! I met him at a Macy's event in April here locally! I got so many great style tips from him then, now if only he could personally me everyday!

As someone who really enjoys Clinton Kelly on The Chew, I would have LOVED to attend this. That tip about not wearing straps around the ankles is one that should be self explanatory but I've never thought of it!

I like sequins when I see them on other people yet my closet doesn't have any! I really need to remedy that...

I agree with the shoe and ankle advice. Of course I don't have the problem, as I can't find nice shoes that I like in my tug boat size.

I wish I had been able to attend this event! I totally agree with the thick ankles advice! Having big legs myself I'm always careful about that! And I'm always in the hunt for a pair of nude shoes that go with my skin tone!

I saw a few ladies tweeting this on Friday what a fun event. I knew he was funny too. Sequins I don't think are for me but hey never say never.
