DC FASHON EVENT RECAP: Lloyd Boston Takes Over Macy's

Style Guru and Jones New York Style Expert, Lloyd Boston launched the Jones New York Style tour at Macy's Tysons Corner Center last Saturday. He was very down-to-earth and definitely made the women in the crowd feel like he was a good friend just trying to help a girl figure out her wardrobe.

She was so surprised when her name was called but I am sure that secretly she was hoping her name was called. I know I would have been hoping. Who doesn't love to get pampered and to get new clothes for free?

What do you really want women to know?
I want women to know that trends are options not must haves. You don't have to wear trends in order to look great. I love the classics. It's okay to pepper in a few trends with your classic pieces.

How would you describe your personal style?
