Style Me Stunning: Spotlight On Eric Himel

I had the pleasure of working with Chicago-based, talent-drenched stylist Eric Himel on my last photo shoot – lucky me! With a style resume that includes such celebrities as Giuliana Rancic, Ali Later, Jillian Harris and Jenny McCarthy, how could a girl go wrong?



 Eric’s intuition is spot on. I felt flawless and celebrated in everything he put me in.

Can he just live in my closet and help me every day!?!

Check out his genius in action…

The simple silk top is a perfect complement to this retro-inspired ruffle skirt!

Sitting pretty.

Grey shimmer, light pink pattern and layered bead necklaces – balanced and beautiful!

Can I just live in this dress?

Feeling fancy in soft ruffles in this beautiful blush pink dress…

When Eric is not jet setting around bestowing his fashion wisdom, he offers a signature service called The Closet Purge.

It sounds daunting right? We all have a tough time letting go of our once adored pieces, but Eric guides you to let go and find your true style. The goal is to be able to pull anything out of your closet and feel confident in it – who doesn’t want that?

Check out Eric’s MUST HAVEs FOR HER


A WHITE JEAN: HIS FAVE – AG ‘Stilt Cigarette Skinny Jean’. WHY: With a bit of stretch to accommodate weight fluxuations and a mid-rise so people don’t think ‘crack is whack’, I like to think of this pant as the perfect 21st century pedal pusher.

THE PERFECT HOOP EARRING: HIS FAVE – MICHAEL KORS ‘Whisper’ Hoop Earrings. WHY: Light as a feather and chic with everything from jeans and a T to an LBD. AT $45 they won’t break the bank – so get them in gold and silver.

AN ASIAN –INSPIRED WEDGE: HIS FAVE – TOD’S WHY: The heel is so ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’, but the woman who wears this version is the one in control this time.

A 60s INSPIRED SUNGLASS: HIS FAVE – TOM FORD ‘Calgary’ Sunglass. WHY: Think Belle du Jour for the 21st century.

UNISEX FRAGRANCE: HIS FAVE – HERMÈS ‘Voyage’. WHY: Sophisticated, not pretentious. You can buy it for your man, and wear it too.

BEIGE NAIL COLOR: HIS FAVE – ESSIE ‘Case Study’. WHY: Make a statement with your personality instead.
