Hello there, I’m Rebecca! I am the moonlighting fashion blogger over at Three Things Great where I share my outfits and thoughts on the fashion industry. For my day job I work as a wardrobe stylist for an eCommerce company, which I absolutely love. I spend my days looking at & learning about beautiful clothes, helping women to feel good about themselves & the clothing they wear, with a splash of travel thrown in here & there (perfection!). When the opportunity came to join Shaped by Style I jumped on it because I love being surrounded by intelligent & fashionable women!
When I am not styling or blogging I am taking care of my two year old daughter, hanging out with my family, walking my dog, reading or working out. Here are some more fun facts about me:
-I live on a ranch & my favorite animals are cows (they like to photobomb my outfit photos)
-I was in the front row of a Jack White concert, while pregnant
-I co owned an Indian food truck & was studying veterinary medicine before I changed careers
Like many of the other women in this group I have had a wide variety of shapes & sizes from toned to not so toned. Since this group is about dressing different body types & healthy body image I thought I would share photos of all my different body types and then I’ll share all the amazing things my body could do at each stage!
Pre pregnancy/ Pregnant/ Post pregnancy
Pre Pregnancy: Size 8/10. Ran 3-6 miles 3x/week, completed Insanity & karate class 2x/week

To me style has always been more about how I feel about myself & my body in my clothing and what I am capable of doing in the clothes I choose to wear than the actual clothes themselves. My goal when I am styling a woman (myself included) is to remind her that her clothes are an extension of her amazing body & personality, not the focus. Follow Shaped by Style as we introduce you to more gorgeous clothes worn by dynamic women.
