What we wear – our personal style – is so much a part of who we are, what we say to the world, and an image of how we feel. As we grow and change in life, so does our style. Often in this fast-paced world, we lose sight of what our style is and how to get it back. As a mother of three, I understand how chaotic life can be and how your style can take a backseat as we drive through life.” – Elizabeth Gumb, personal stylist
