Today, March 15th, at 10:45 a.m., Just Call Kara made a guest appearance on Fox 2 News, Detroit.  The segment, Style File, featured my approach to transitioning  bulky winter clothes to colorful Spring style.  With my props, jewelry, outfits, and wonderful models, Julia, Maren, and Sara, I headed to the news station.  Upon arrival, we were escorted to the green room where we mentally prepared for the five minute segment.  Butterflies? Nerves?  Some, but after a few deep breaths I was able to regroup and was ready to roll.  My models were assuredly going to rock on camera.

With anything planned, there is always a chance that something may not go as anticipated.  As we entered the building, I was told that the Winter clothing photos that I had planned to “split screen” with the updated Spring fashions could not be implemented this late in the game.  Without the time necessary to change, we were told that each model would only have enough time to show one look.  Disappointed that the transition focus of the segment would be lost, we strategized to make it work.  A fast and furious “change” had to occur and that is exactly what we did.



Maren started the segment by changing from a wintery scarf and dark boot cut jeans to trend forward printed Skinny jeans and colorful jewelry from Target.  Julia transitioned a winter work look by swapping a wool A-line for a colorful abstract dress from Burlington Coat Factory.  Last but not least, Sara traded her black puffy coat and heavy wool scarf for a bright green trench coat from Macy’s and a colorful neck circle from Just Call Kara, inside the Skin Boutique in Birmingham.  Winter to Spring was achieved by changing one garment and a few accessories and because my girls were fast, we were able to show everything we had planned.


In addition to the model’s spring styling, I was able to discuss some of Springs “must haves” including bright espadrille wedges, green Kate Spade kitten heels, intensely colored small leather goods and totes, cross body bags and colorful jewelry.  It was fun to surprise Anqunette Jamison with the great deals I had found when purchasing the featured accessories at TJ Maxx and Loehmanns.  When you are in the stores 5 to 7 days a week, you find deals regularly!



Thank you to my models, my mentor Amy, my intern, Abby, and my daughter, Abby, who came along for the ride and was a huge help.  Thank you to Fox 2 News for having me as a guest.  I hope I am able to contribute again.  The experience made a dreary Friday morning completely delightful.

As I write this, the rain has turned to snow.  Although the weather is still far from mild, do not be afraid to transition some of your tired winter clothes to some brighter spring options.  Small changes, moving in the right direction, baby steps.  Who knows, maybe Mother Nature will take note!
