I’ve been a self-proclaimed stylist for years. I’ve styled photo shoots and revamped closets and offered unsolicited advice on my friends’ clothing choices, but until very recently, I’d never made it official. Enter The Stylist Online. When my friend/social media adviser Darlynn Nangano mentioned that the company was looking for stylists, in our area, I was thrilled. I wasn’t aware, until later, that there was a local connection, and that the founder/CEO Amy Brown Wister was an Ormond Beach native.

Crew, Bloomingdale’s and Anthropologie, and emerged with heavy bags and light wallets. Here, a few of the items we picked up:
