My dear, you have consumed my life. I've been thinking quite a bit about your wishlist and what direction we are really going with your personal style. I've finally landed on Stevie Nicks meets Joan Jett on a trip to Finland. Believe it. The idea is to embrace your inner rockstar. You aren't just in the band, you are the front woman. Add in your love of bohemian style, fringe, prints and the like and elevate it all for a very stylish professional woman working at a large fashion retailer. Naturally, your body type and functionality of the pieces are front and center. Enough talk, let's get started. 

Because you have an inverted triangle body type, the best approach is to draw the eye downward to balance out your frame visually. However, we also discussed your desire for a bold coat, perhaps red, to show off your fearless style while out in the elements. This coat is everything. It's made for a very specific woman, and that woman is you. It has a luxurious bohemian style that is reminiscent of rock stars past and present and the length balances out your frame nicely. Ideally, you'll pair this with pants or jeans that balance out your frame or a skirt with eye catching shoes. You love to be comfortable and cozy and this coat does all that and more.

Basics don't need to be boring. This top from All Saints is flattering for your shape and has an effortless vibe. Toss it on with a mini skirt and flats or boots and head out the door. No need to struggle with whether or not to tuck in your shirt. Equally important, it won't overwhelm your frame. Also available in grey. You might want both.

Distressed jeans are just right for you. They draw attention to your lower half balancing out your frame and the finish communicates your edge. Showing off your ankles is another great way to maximize your assets and be comfortable. You have some super cool shoes on this list and that's just the beginning. It's time to really start highlighting your footwear.

Speaking of footwear, don't let your very specific needs discourage you from hunting for beautiful shoes that communicate your personal style. I love the idea of you in a chelsea boot. They are generally flat (or have a very low incline) and are referential to very hip individuals past and present. Right now, ankle boots are more current, so I'm opting to encourage you to go that route. You should be able to get these off and on easily and my hope is that they are light weight enough to be comfortable for you all day. (If not, let me know and we'll find something else.) This pair from Aquatalia are pricey, but the quality is there and they are waterproof which is ideal when you are running between buildings on especially rainy days. Brown or black will work, but I'm suggesting the brown as they are more interesting, draw the eye down and are in line with your personal style. This is a moment when the discount will be much appreciated.

You prefer signature pieces that you wear repeatedly and I love this approach for you. A mixed metal watch is sure to elevate any look and can tie together silver earrings and a gold bracelet, for instance. So, it further streamlines seemingly random pieces in your wardrobe. Nixon is a super hip and yet affordable brand and I like the clean lines on this watch. Feel free to choose any mixed metal watch that catches your eye at a price point that works for you long term.

Nixon Time Teller Bracelet Watch. Nordstrom. $100.

Cross body bags are ideal for your on the go lifestyle and it's helpful to be hands free when you are using your cane. This blue bag from baggu is just right. You don't feel like a super designer bag girl to me. I like the idea of discovering something that catches your eye from an unexpected location. Blue is unusual and still totally functional with your wardrobe. It's perfect with any of the coats on this list and will be easy to find when searching for your bag.

A leather or faux leather jacket is a must for you. Opt for a dark color that will balance out your frame and work nicely with an array of bold colors and prints. Below are two great options. First, the Free People jacket is a little harder with just the right amount of detail. However, there is no petite option. It's likely that tailoring will take a number of these pieces to the next level. Try the Nordstrom tailor or I can help you out with exceptional mobile tailoring from ZTailors. Alternatively, the Halogen jacket has nice clean lines and is flattering for your shape. Often times, employees are a little sensitive to the house brands, so I wanted to give you two options. This jacket, however, is available in petite.

Ahhh! Okay, I know it's a little crazy, but I can TOTALLY see you in this. All Saints does not carry petite, so we know the slit will be much lower on you, which is just right. Again, the tailor may need to be a part of this action. I love this dress with one of the leather jackets above or the black cardigan further down. A big part of your personal style is the way you embrace your cane (and potentially a brace). When planning your outfits, it's important that we don't try to camoflauge those aspects of your look and instead bring them into the mix. This dress can be worn with bare legs, leggings or tights, depending on where we end up with the length. It's the graphic prints you are drawn to and certainly not something everyone at the office will be wearing. However, it's also high quality and sophisticated enough for the Green Mile.

Few things have made me as happy as finding these shoes. Crazy comfortable and equally stylish, the ankle strap means that they won't slip off while you walk. Flats that are not boring in a style that is all you, this pair is on sale (before the discount!) and sure to be a staple in your wardrobe.

Bracelets, rings, and watches are the most flattering options for your body type. However, it's important to have some necklaces that communicate your personal style when you want them. I'm obsessed with 14th & Union's selection at the Rack online for just this reason. This delicate necklace is edgy, interesting and practically free. So, there's that. 

14th & Union Dual Row Geometric Necklace. Available in silver, gold. Nordstrom Rack. $12.

You love fringe and I wanted to find something that is modern, works with several of the pieces in your closet and is comfortable enough to wear on the regular. Welcome to the Paxon sleeveless coat from All Saints. Use the belt to close it up and stay warm or choose to keep it open. Either way, it's flattering, comfortable and sure to draw the right kind of attention. The neutral color means it will be easier to pair with the variety of colors in your current and future wardrobe. Again, it's not available in petite, so it's likely that it will need to be tailored. Try it over dresses, mini skirts, with leggings, jeans or trousers. The options are endless. It's also lovely with any of the shoes on this list and can be worn over the burgundy top above.

Leggings make you happy, so I want to respect that and offer you some alternatives to your usual black pair. These mix and match effortlessly with the entire list, will work well on your thin legs and with a brace. Plus, the colors and texture balance out your frame and communicate your edgy side. Love.

More shoes! Because they can be challenging to find, I am suggesting several pairs of shoes for you to choose from. This burgundy pair is eye catching and works well with the colors in your current and future wardrobe. A comfort brand flat, with ankle straps, they are supremely functional. And yet, they don't look like your standard "comfort shoe." While you've been able to work with non comfort brands in the past, it seems like it would be helpful to offer you the support you need in attractive shoes.

Free People! On Sale! At Nordstrom! This dress is so you I can't even believe it. The navy and white combo is ideal with your color palette. It's boho, but not super hippy. It's sophisticated without being stuffy AND it looks incredible under any of the jackets, vests and cardigans on this list. Try it with ankle boots or flats. Transform it into a skirt by tossing a pullover over top. Or, how about the burgundy top and the leather jacket with the burgundy or black flats. I die.

This vintage inspired piece balances out your frame, brings bold color into the mix and communicates your style. Try it with the All Saints tank, the burgundy top or any combination with navy.

Rainboots are great. I'm not sure if these will be easy for you to put on and take off. If so, they are hip, functional and flattering. And, of course they are especially affordable after your discount. Right now, Nordstrom is out of several colors, so I'm showing them from various retailers. But, I'm sure they'll come back in as these are really popular. Any of the colors below work well with your wardrobe (including the coat at the top of the list) and are flattering for your frame. Feel free to rock them with skirts like the yellow mini above and add tights to complete the look.

I've been saving this one because I know how much you'll love it. Wear this sweater three ways for maximum functionality. Great for travel, amazing with the leather leggings, this sweater somehow manages to be both cozy and sophisticated. It's also lovely with mini skirts to make your outfit feel more appropriate for the office.

This vintage inspired dress is flattering for your shape and insanely affordable. Try it with the cardigan above and the black flats for a sophisticated approach.

Red makes you happy and this petite skirt from Anthropologie is an ideal way to bring bold color into the mix while elevating your look and balancing out your frame. The zipper adds an edge that is all you. Love this with a striped tee, the tank above and especially under the navy coat below. So good. 

Petite Honorine Mini Skirt. Anthropolgie. $198.

Petite Honorine Mini Skirt. Anthropolgie. $198.

The first coat on the list makes me so happy! But, there are days when a print coat simply won't work with your ensemble. This navy option from Topshop solves that problem without sacrificing style. Modern, cozy and petite, it's a show stopper that allows you to highlight the rest of your outfit effortlessly.

Petite Belted Wool Blend Coat. Topshop. $170.

A big fan of 60's mod, I couldn't make a list without at least one dress that gives you the opportunity to communicate that aspect of your personal style. This petite swing dress from ASOS is unlike any other. Toss the long black cardigan over top if you are looking to tone it down. Alternatively, embrace the print with the leather jacket and in the summer, rock it with the Dr. Scholl's platform sandals. Indeed.

Yes, you are more silver than gold, but gold is all the rage right now and the mixed metallic watch means you can rock either. This pair of cuffs from Gorjana is so hip and looks amazing with the outfit below, among others, of course.

I have had a number of clients who have had great success with Pepperberry. They make clothing for women with larger busts, which makes this rainy day mac even more exciting. Flattering for your frame, this classic trench is sure to shield you from the rain for years to come. Navy!

Another piece from Pepperberry, this burgundy moto jacket is designed for larger busted women. A flattering cut in a color that is repeated throughout this list, this wine moto inspired jacket can be worn inside as an alternative to a cardigan. Try it with skirts, jeans, or open with leggings and a tunic.

This is so you and in a way that works for your frame. The dark purple is just right for your body type and this piece is incredible with the leather leggings on this list and a blazer or the black cardigan. Alternatively, try it with the trousers below, the burgundy jacket above (open, of course) and the black flats.

Love them with the detailed tops on this list to balance out your frame.

And there you have it. I included several more pieces than the usual 20-30, but because your style is so complex, it's vital that you have balance to hit all the elements of the authentic you. In order to do that, you need choices. Now, it's up to you to pick and choose your favorites. Keep me posted. I can't wait to hear how it goes!
