Contrary to popular belief, celeb stylists aren’t competitive with each other. In fact, we’re all pretty good friends and support one another in this chaotic job we have.
Recently I learned my friend and blogger extraordinaire ElShane was behind Carly Rae Jepsen’s fresh and stylish tour looks.
ElShane and I met years ago while she was a fabulous NYC publicist for DVF and I was a baby editor at Elle. She’s now living in LA and tapping stars like Carly with her fashion magic wand. So I asked her to share the inside scoop on how to get Carly’s look.
Annie Ladino: How did you meet Carly Rae Jepsen?
ElShane: Pure electronic fate! Her manager had been following my blog and thought we’d be a perfect fit. With my eye for candy-colored, edgy-inspired looks, and Carly’s innately fun and fresh vibe, we joined forces to create epic greatness!
Annie: She’s been compared to Joni Mitchell and Janis Joplin and I can see a little of that in her wardrobe. Do you have any influences when putting together her tour looks?
El: The best part of working with Carly is that she looks amazing in everything! We love mixing bright pop hues with hints of her whimsical, bohemian nature; it allows her to dive into her most creative, powerful self on stage.
Annie: What are your favorite designers for Carly?
El: Carly is the queen of street style; she can rock highs and lows effortlessly, creating looks her fans to aspire to wear. Brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, and TopShop are the perfect mix of feminine and rocker chic. We’ve also been experimenting with incredibly on-trend Australian brands like Finders Keepers and Zimmermann.
Annie: Most people don’t see the behind-the-scenes part of styling and are only exposed to the end product. I’m curious to know if there have been any wardrobe malfunctions or last-minute switches?
El: The job is never over until the final note is sung! With the introduction of chains, lace, and paillettes into performance looks, it’s pretty much a sure bet that something will go wrong right before stage time. Thankfully double-stick tape, safety pins, and miniature sewing kits are my three best friends.
Annie: From your blog we can all see how bold and fashion forward you are with your personal style. Personally, I admire how adventurous you are. Is there anything you shy away from on the red carpet with Carly or any of your clients?
El: Absolutely! For myself, I love experimenting with volume. Since I’m not in the spotlight, I can control what angles I’m shot from. A voluminous dress on the red carpet can be an instant fashion disaster if shot from the wrong angle. I do everything I can to keep pieces that are not 360-degree-angle friendly off of my clients!
Annie: Anything Carly’s exposed you to?
El: She taught me everything about personal character. Nice girls always finish first. She’s the real deal…
Annie: Anything in your prop kit you can’t live without?
El: My sewing kit. For a gal who majored in Journalism and History, I’ve pricked myself more times than not. But I can make a mean last minute hemline…
Annie: We know you’re a Shop It To Me girl, what’s been in your Salemail that you’d snap up for Carly Rae?
El: Check out my picks for Carly Rae below:

Looking for something great to wear to that summer party? Better squeeze in your shopping BEFORE you head off to Fourth of July fireworks because some of the best sales end Wednesday!
The Independence Day holiday is a good time for sales. It trumped Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2011, with average discounts of 43.5% off — although it did lag behind Labor Day’s average of 48% off, according to our data.
For the best deals, shop early. There are many more pre-holiday (now through Wednesday) than post-holiday sales offered by online retailers.
For example, Ralph Lauren, Timberland, Tory Burch, Jones New York, Reiss, Bloomingdale’s, Avenue and Shoes.com, are offering deep discounts on summer apparel now through Wednesday, July 4. A few retailers – including Kate Spade and Brooks Brothers – will end their sales Tuesday, July 3.
Start and end dates vary, so follow Shop It To Me on Twitter (@shopittome) for the latest. And, be sure your Salemail preferences are up to date, so you won’t miss out on those perfect summer sandals and flirty sundresses when they go on sale in your size.
In other news you can use, our data shows July is a good time to buy boy’s and girl’s clothes online because these categories are more discounted than in other months. It’s also a slightly better than average time for women’s shoe sales (cue fireworks!)

We hope you’re ready for a wake-up call, because Kathryn Eisman’s talking money with Suze Orman in this week’s Secrets to Your Success. You’ll love this clip for Suze’s no-holds-barred advice on how to be your best financial freedom fighter.
Smartypants that she is, Kathryn knew better than to show up in an ensemble for which she paid full price. Instead, she opted for this fiscally fabulous outfit purchased all on sale through Shop It To Me.
3.1 Phillip Lim Play Suit and Sergio Rossi pumps ($299.94)
To rock a similarly rich look, try some of these on for size (all found via Shop It To Me):
