I’m Abby!.
I'm a certified & published fashion stylist located in Silicon Valley with speciality in personal styling, color analysis and runway, commercial, and editorial styling.

Lines not only help reshape the body and help accent our best features, but they also can convey moods.  

Horizontal lines can appear to be visually calming, steady, & strong. Take a look at the picture below.

Vertical lines imply height, reach, & slenderness. Can you tell?
