I have a real treat for you today! I’m joined on Sew & Tell by two real-life “What Not To Wear”-style wardrobe warriors: Jenny Wilensky Zalkan and Kimberly Sussman Bridges. These two Miami beauties are professional style consultants, offering not just pro-level makeovers, but genuine fashion therapy. Their business, Istylie, is an online haven for any woman who doesn’t quite know what to do when she opens her closet (and which of us hasn’t been there before?!) Check out a great Daily Candy feature on Jenny and Kimmie here!

On today’s show, Jenny and Kimmie talk about the origin of Istylie, their custom-tailored therapeutic approach, a few of their own treasured wardrobe pieces, and a quick trick to achieving a polished look in under 10 minutes.

Plus, we have new music today from some great female singer-songwriters like Jenna Nicholls and Maria Taylor, as well as a set of vintage surfer-tinged rock just in time for late summer. Even though it’s hard to believe that fall is around the corner, Jenny, Kimmie, and BreakThru Radio are here to help you get ready…
