Here's the scoop, I love fashion and I am so excited to be here to share a few things about fashion with you.  But first I would like to start off and tell you a little bit about myself.  I was raised in a small town in Florida and I have had a dream of being in fashion since I was a girl.  I have been styling my friends and sisters since I can remember.  I always tried to stay on top of fashion and drooled over my mom's Vogue magazines and even her Speigal and Neiman Marcus catalogs thinking about how I would piece items together.  I got married at 19 to an Army Aviator and my dream to live in NYC and work as a stylist at Bergdorf Goodman or Sak's Firth Avenue kind of flew out the window. but I will save all of that for a future show.  Let's start talking about today's discussion.

Stripes Don't Make You Look Fat!!!  Everyone comes into my boutique and are completely against horizontal stripes.  They always say, "Oh no way am I putting those on my body".  Over and over again I must explain that stripes can actually distract the eye from looking at your problem area.  What would you rather do put on vertical stripes which will expand in your thicker areas?  Stripes are beautiful and 100% classic.  Don't be afraid of them!   Sorry to tell you, but stripes aren't going anywhere.  Check out some of our best striped looks at our online store.  http://www.shopmaggieb.com or follow us on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/shopmaggieb
