    • Some Advice from Stacy

      Stacy's biggest fashion pet peeve is anything Jennifer Lopez or Pink is wearing.

      A common fashion blunder:

      Clothes that don't fit properly. Whatever you are trying to hide by wearing a feed sack only looks worse than it actually is.

      A quick fashion fix:

      A great pair of high heels; a good shade of lipstick; a stiff drink.

      A personal fashion confession:

      I wore sweater dresses with tube socks in seventh grade, and I had a hair cut that made me look like Robert Smith — the lead singer of The Cure. No, it was not a pretty time in my life.

      Favorite rule of thumb:

      If it doesn't match anything you own, don't buy it. It will never match anything you own.

      Favorite accessory:

      Fantastic vintage jewelry; sunglasses; moisturizer; a cute boy styled by me.

      Favorite splurge item:

      Shoes from Christian Louboutin. A girl will just never truly know what it means to be a flirt without them. They are pure sex on a stiletto.

      Favorite budget item:

      Cetaphil for the face; Pantene for the hair. Why spend more when this is all you'll ever need?

      Favorite part of WNTW:

      Watching the participants when we take them shopping and putting them in their first outfit. They all look so surprised that they look so good — as if we expect any less.

      Funniest moment while filming WNTW:

      Watching a participant make antlers with her hair in front of a mirror. We are usually bubbly and chatty and always ready with a comeback, but we stood there completely dumbfounded.

  • Quotes

    • Stacy: (speaking of her father)We don't see eye to eye on that much politically, he did instill a certain sense of propriety and right and wrong in me, which plays into my fashion sensibility.

    • Stacy: You can't fit your clothes well and look your best if you don't know what you're working with.

    • Stacy: Don't get hung up on the size. If you feel bad about yourself because a 12 is what fits, take a Sharpie, and write '6' on the label.

  • Help me help my Mom come back

    Family death has taken such a toll on my mom, Katrina took her mother and in 2010 her father in law and brother in law.. followed by her father on April 16 and her sister on April 17 in 2010.
