Style Stars – these ladies know all about what it takes to look good.

Here are a few tips from them on getting a look that simply works!

Susannah Lowery – Wife & “MumS Lowery

How would you describe your personal style? Classic and simple.

Style Motto:: Less is more!!!!!

Where are your favorite places to shop?

I shop at Nordstrom a lot! I particularly love the fact you can walk in there and get an entire outfit top to toe. Whether I’m in a lace wearing mood, or feeling it’s a jeans day with a tailored jacket, I can usually find it there.

One must-have item for you::

My must have right now is my new pair of Rag & Bone booties. They are classic with a rustic edge and perfect with skinny jeans or skirts.

A tip to getting dressed daily::

My biggest tip (and generally this helps me) is to always wear clothes you feel really comfortable in. Whether its a flowy skirt or skin tight shorts -whatever you feel good in you will rock! I personally have a curvier figure so I feel best when I accentuate my waist or legs. Try and dress for your body type and you can never go wrong.



T EllisTara Ellis –TEK Systems Account Manager

How would you describe your personal style? I would describe my personal style as Classic Chic. I love clean lines and simple, polished looks that are comfortable. I like to pair t-shirts and jeans with heels or a fun accessory to give a basic look a twist.

Style Motto:: Keep it simple and dress for yourself! My Granny always told me “just because it’s IN style doesn’t mean it’s YOUR style”. I think of her every time I get an urge to buy highwaisted pants!!

A tip to getting dressed daily:: I always double check for potential wardrobe malfunctions. There are few things worse than having a rip in your sweater, regretting not wearing a tank under a shirt that’s a bit too sheer, or the wrong color undies.

One must-have item for you:: I absolutely LOVE scarves… even in the summer I wear lightweight linen scarves to make a ordinary outfit stand out.

Where are your favorite places to shop? Banana Republic, J.Crew and BCBG’s clearance racks and of course, Target.

What new trend are you incorporating into your wardrobe for 2014? Leather moto leggings are at the top of my list for this winter.

A SmithAmanda Smith – Educator and Learning Leader at Byars Dowdy Elementary

Style Motto:: Something old, something new…a vintage/modern mix, with of course, comfort being the key!

Where are your favorite places to shop?

The Dressing Room, CAbi and Francesca’s but TJMaxx is my “go to” place to find a piece of fun.

A tip to getting dressed daily::

To me getting dressed is like me creating a piece of art…a little of this, a splash of that, and accessories for the finishing touch.

What new trend are you incorporating into your wardrobe for 2014? To me, 2014 is about layers and pops of color.

One must-have item for you:: My must-have is a great pair of boots!



N BellNecole Bell – Makeup Artist/Owner of Beauty Boutique Salon, Spa & Apparel

Style Motto:: I wear the clothes; the clothes don’t wear me. There is nothing like getting out to dinner and realizing that the outfit you have on really wasn’t meant for you. In turn, I don’t make major fashion decisions with my girlfriends, because when I do, I tend to come home with what THEY should have bought!

One must-have item for you:: My must have is a great fitting pair of jeans…even if you have just one great pair. I have mine tailored just a little long so that I can wear them with heels or cuff them to wear with flats. Honestly, I think a great pair of jeans will take you just about anywhere.

What new trend are you incorporating into your wardrobe for 2014? I recently got married and in the move I somehow lost my old leather jacket. At this point, I’m not really sure if it was the style Gods or just bad luck, but my jacket didn’t make the move. I’m thinking that it somehow made it in the Goodwill pile… (Hmmm or did my husband do that as a payback for all his clothes that have mysteriously disappeared?) LOL. I was forced to invest in a new leather jacket. It’s Veda. I love it! Feels like I’ve had it for years. It’s easy and versatile and can be dressed up or down. This time I will keep a tight hold on it…no more hastily packed boxes to Goodwill!!


J BadgerJoyce Badger – Former Curriculum Supervisor for Lebanon School District

How would you describe your personal style?

Simple and casual overall… I do like to make a basic outfit a little fun and funky with my accessories from boot, to belt, to necklace.

One must-have item for you::

Jewelry…I collect an absolute boatload of jewelry!

Style Motto::

I used to worry about wearing the right thing. Now I know once you find a great item that works, just continue to wear it time and time again.

Where to shop::

In the past, I would drive all the way to Nashville to find great pieces for my closet. I liked perusing small boutiques, like when Coco would have a great sale. Now, I really enjoy staying within Wilson County, shopping places on the Lebanon Square like Crystal Couture and Lulus…and also browsing Providence for great finds. I mix my more expensive old pieces with the new to make my classic items seem fresh again!
