You may not know my name, but it’s likely there are still items hanging in your closet or folded in your drawers that I had a hand in getting there.
In my 25+ years in the LA and NY garment industry, I’ve designed and merchandised for some your favorite labels in the juniors, contemporary, misses and mens markets. My designs have graced the racks of every major department store and specialty chain in the country as well as many high-end boutiques. I was Creative Director/Partner of the juniors label “With the Band" and I'm Creative Director/Owner of the mens label “BANDIT®”. My work has been featured in national and international publications and on the red-carpet. I’ve appeared as a fashion expert on Bravo, USA and E! and designed costumes for TV and film. These days, I’m styling, shopping and curating the closets of my personal and celebrity clients.
I started my website and blog because I’m at the tail-end of my 50’s and have a ton of information that can help the way you think about and wear your clothing. My passion is helping women look and feel confident no matter their age, shape or socioeconomic status. Sharing my tips and style-stories will guide you to an ageless and effortlessly-put-together look. I’ll show you how I “work-my-closet”; re-imagining the ways to wear what I already own and identifying the missing pieces that I need (ok, let’s be honest), WANT! You’ll see how I up-cycle my old favorites, combine high-end with “fast-fashion” and work vintage pieces into the mix for a fresh uptown/downtown style. My hope is to empower other women by sharing some of the things I’ve learned along the way to better develop and cultivate an ageless and timeless style.
My name is Felicia Arlin. I’m an LA girl, born and raised by two very fashionable parents.
