Fashionable Friends – Meet Hilary!


FTF is as much about friends as it is about fashion.  So from time to time we are going to introduce you to some of our most fashionable friends and share their secrets to looking great!

Today, I’d like you to meet my dear friend, Hilary.  I met Hilary 20 years ago when we both lived in Baltimore.  She now resides in New Jersey, works in Manhattan while I call Chicago home.   We recently vacationed together and I was reminded of her great fashion sense.  Each day I looked forward to seeing what she would be wearing!

Hilary’s personal style demonstrates two good concepts.  The first is that you don’t need to go overboard with the season’s latest trends.  Buy a few things that you really love, look good on your body type and align with your personal taste.  Then mix them with the pieces you already own to create a great look.  This approach keeps you current without breaking the bank.  Hilary also knows how to mix and match pieces to create new outfits.  A great skill to have overall and especially when traveling.

The second thing Hilary does so well is accessorize.  She has a beautiful light weight bag.  It is perfect for carrying day trip necessities (bottle of water, scarf, sweater, and umbrella) or for toting a laptop to and from the office.  Hilary’s other daily accessories include a nice watch, sunglasses, cute belts and shoes, bracelets, pretty necklaces, rings, earrings and often scarfs.  She totally understands that accessories make the outfit!  Check out a few of the great looks she was sporting on our  trip!

        Kathy – Hilary bought the dress the online. The website is which was created by designer Johnnie Boden. I couldn’t find the exact dress but the site is a great find so I am so glad you asked! Johnnie Boden started out dressing UK’s yummy mummies and their children. I love this site! There are so many fun dresses, tops and coats! The prices are very reasonable and right now there are a ton of mark downs!
