About Me:

I am Yolanda Keil. I'm a blogger and a freelance social media & market strategist. I am also a former shopaholic who loves the beauty of creativity that is often displayed in fashion and culture. I started blogging to combine my love of artistic craftsmanship with my image consulting and marketing background.



About Fashion & True Style:

This blog is where I share my secrets (beauty, fashion & lifestyle) and celebrate The Next Level of Creativity via Fab Finds, My Deconstructed & Reworked Styling Projects and Insider Access.

I express my individuality and test my creative vision with my deconstructed and reworked styling projects ... where I convert rarely/never-worn designer styles into fab pieces that:
    1. Fit & flatter my figure.
    2. Are functional and worry-free (with no need to tug or adjust anything). 
    3. Reflect my personal style; slightly dramatic with a touch of avant garde edge.


The Added Bonus:

My deconstructed and reworked projects start with shopping my closet ... I created a striking, up-cycled wardrobe without buying clothes in over a year.

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. 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.
