What's In Her Bag with Blogger and Personal Stylist, Candace Read June 04, 2018 09:00

We are thrilled to feature one of our favorite fashion bloggers, Candace Read.  She's always on point, has great taste (refined, practical and pulls off a finished look), gorgeous (inside and out), and fun.  Her style is relatable, completely in touch with living life, wearing comfortable clothes and looking good while doing it.

I met Candace over a smoothie bowl at Zest at Easton Town Center. We chatted about her role at Wardrobe Therapy. She helps clients with personal shopping, wardrobe consulting, and closet restyling services. She brings her regular working girl style to her clients, and to readers of her blog. When not working or blogging, she's exploring Columbus with her husband.

Her bag reflects her life as a personal stylist, always on the go. Her items are functional and fun.

Candace typically carries a backpack or a satchel bag with a crossbody strap. Her  soft leather backpack shown is from GiGi New York.

She's a huge fan of Neutrogena's lip color stick. She also carries Pacifica underarm wipes. 

Her personalized field notes were a gift from A&F Challenge, a party hosted by Abercrombie and Fitch, benefitting a different non-profit each year. 

A fabric tape measurer, Tide to-go stick, iPhone and changer, cash (for meters), pins and business cards are essential to her work as a personal stylist.

She wears her Honey Rose & K vintage Italian compass pendant. Its symbolic to her since she just did a rebranding of her blog from "Live Love & Read" to "Candace Read". She's changing her direction to reflect a "more mature, refined and a million times more confident in who I am {perks of getting older}".

We are excited that Candace is taking her Honey Rose & K with her on this exciting journey of rebranding and a new direction.

What's In Her Bag With Paula Koontz Gilmour, $25M Dollar Club Realtor May 30, 2018 21:37

Paula Koontz-Gilmour is one of Central Ohio's premier realtors, holding awards from both Coldwell Banker King Thompson, Columbus Board of Realtors, and Ohio Association of Realtors.

Paula is from Upper Arlington and lives here with her husband and 2 children. She's not only an accomplished realtor, but she also is involved with many non-profit organizations in Central Ohio. You'll likely see Paula working, exercising (barre class, tennis or running), volunteering or shuttling her kids to and from activities.

In Paula's Louis Vuitton tote include tools to run her successful real estate business. 

Her iPhone and a spare battery charger because (really?), how can you run a business without a smart phone? 

Paula's business cards with her wearing hot pink, one of her signature colors. Her  Honey Rose & K hot pink drop earrings are a favorite, matching many dresses in her closet.

A few realtors tools she always has on hand: blue ink pens (for home closings) and a laser room measurer

She also has the essential makeup bag. She's always on the go, so no time to reapply at home!

Paula's favorite Honey Rose & K necklace (often found more on her neck than in her bag!). 

The Mott fruit snacks are a favorite go-to for between meetings snack.

Paula, thank you for letting us get to snoop around in your great bag!
