Crystal Cave is a stylist who specializes in “not so skinny style”. Whether or not you identify as “not so skinny”, most of us have some kind of body hangups, and this show helps with that.
We cover how to love your body for whatever it looks like right now, how to handle other peoples’ judgments, and style tips for both men and women. It’s a fun episode!
Not-so-skinny can be oh-so-stylish.
After years of styling celebrities & big brands from Taylor Swift, Mercedes Benz, and the Billboard Music Awards, I’ve discovered something surprising about great style.
Nobody has the same body. Crazy, right?!
It’s not about being a size 2, having skeleton arms, or wearing the latest trends. It’s all about knowing how to dress for your body type.
After years of self-study, I learned how to dress my body. I become the in-house stylist to my college friends. They would go shopping in my closet and become “Crystal-ified”.
Then, after getting trained in Style School and as a personal stylist, I stepped out as an industry insider. In addition to Taylor Swift, I got to glam up Kate Upton, Usher, and Willam DaFoe for a Mercedes commercial, accessorize Debi Mazar from Entourage, get a cast member of Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 red-carpet ready, and more.
Not only did I learn that great style had nothing to do with size, I also learned the insider tricks to setting up your closet for easy and effortless dressing…every day.
I realized that these insider shopping & organizing tricks could be translated to any woman’s closet. So I branched out on my own to show women how to dress their not-so-skinny-bodies — while actually having FUN in the process.
Because, truly… Impeccable style has no size. Let me show you how.
