In order for me to let go of my Birkentstock Gizeh sandals you would have to pry them from my cold, dead hands.  I am not kidding.  They are, hands down, my absolute favorite summer sandals.

Introduction

Bridgette Raes brings out the styles of celebrities, CEO’s and regular women everyday.  She is the president of Bridgette Raes Style Group and author of the bookStyle Rx: Dressing the Body You Have to Create the Body You Want. Her witty, down-to-earth advice has made her a sought-after writer, spokesperson and style expert for countless media outlets worldwide.

Bridgette’s style expertise is regularly featured in People StyleWatchReal Simple Magazine, The Boston Globe, StyleList.com, MSN.com, iVillage.com, and more. Hertelevision appearances regularly include CNN, The Daily Buzz, Good Morning America and well as over 100 appearances on local networks from coast to coast. .

In her 20 years in fashion, Bridgette has worked in every area of the industry. She worked in retail fashion while getting her design degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology and spent nearly a decade designing every type of clothing price point and product. In 2002, she decided that her expertise would be put to better use showing women how to wear clothing that brings out their own unique style, rather than simply designing it. It was this revelation that inspired her to start Bridgette Raes Style Group.

Bridgette’s book, Style Rx: Dressing the Body You Have to Create the Body You Want (Perigee/Penguin 2008) was written to relate to the “everyday woman”, including realistic advice and over 250 photos of real women with real bodies, not professional models.
