About Me:

I am Yolanda Keil. I'm a blogger and a freelance social media & market strategist. I started blogging to combine my love of fashion and craftsmanship with my image consulting and marketing background.

This blog has evolved into an outlet where I can celebrate The Next Level in Fab Finds, My Reworked Styling and Insider Access.

I often post the results of my deconstructed and reworked designer projects ... Where I turn my never/rarely-worn styles into fab pieces that do three things:

    1. Fits & flatters my figure.
    2. Are functional pieces. I don't to worry about hems rising, my girls falling out or splits/ruffles tripping me up. I want items that are wearable. 
    3. Reflects my style preference; a slightly dramatic with a touch of advant garde edge.

It's part of my goal to celebrate quality craftsmanship, creativity and my style. 

It is my hope that my projects will inspire you to celebrate the beauty of artistry and individuality.

A few of my reworked accessories

They say you are the first things you think of when you wake. I think of:
  • Creative, dynamic craftsmanship in fashion, art and interiors.
  • Reworking my rarely/never-worn past purchases ... Adding my distinct Next Level Style ... Turning those pieces into funky items that celebrate my true, individual style.
  • Doing my planned activities to be my best me and give my best to my clients.  
  • Making sure I share my discoveries via my blog.

I believe that we all want a little glam in our daily lives...

...It's all about the details

I love striking pieces ... I'm talking about sophisticated design with a little edge, unique detailing and a lush feel.

I describe my style as Next Level ... fab draping, lush fabric and striking details, taken to the next level. However, Next Level Style is more than just clothing. Decor, the arts, music, and dining are also part of the fabulous mix. It's more about a feeling and a desired lifestyle.

Global Influences ...

I studied for a semester in France and never quite recovered from the experience. It was a wonderful opportunity to see things beyond my little world. And I haven't stopped exploring since.

I strongly believe that knowledge & exposure to other cultures/influences enhances one's lifestyle, confidence and sophistication.

My Next Level Finds...

I have an eye for unique, covetable items ... The beautiful works of creativity that are sophisticated, fresh and a little edgy.

My posts reach those who take action; the shopper/influencer with disposable income. My Next Level Finds tend to sell out.

A Few Examples:

My product reviews are just that ... my reviews, which are always my opinions in my own words. Occasionally, I feature sponsored reviews (via free product and/or link fees). Sponsored reviews will include a referral link, to the website, at the end.
