We met in 2007, when I hired her to be the Fashion & Beauty Editor of the magazine I edit.
|This is the staff on a team building trip to Zambales.|

photo of Nikki "wearing" something not chica!

|We did the rounds of TV shows taking about celebrity style.|
After two years in the magazine world, Nikki left to take over the family business. Though she's now the best dressed CEO in the world, she hasn't entirely left the magazine industry.
|Here she is at the staff shoot in 2009.|
|She worked as a stylist (in heels no less!) for our staff shoot.|
|She's also a beauty columnist.|

And when there's not enough projects and events we attend, we plan our Wine Nights so we can get together with the entire fashionable gang.
|Or we do dinners and lunches at each other's homes.|
At her wedding in 2010, she created the most elegant and stylish wedding I've ever attended.

As you may have guessed from all the photos above, Nikki's a woman of many talents. One of those talents is her unerring knack to put together a completely stylish look. Everywhere Nikki goes--whether it's to a gala, a TV show, a lunch meeting or a dinner at home, she looks absolutely amazing. Not a hair out of place and always flawless. And she makes it look so effortless, too!
So we've been entreating, begging, nagging and pushing her to put up her own style blog. She's been giving us shopping, style and beauty advice for years and her tips are always unbelievably easy! I think my outfits drastically improved when we became friends to be honest. So wouldn't it be nice if she did the same for you?
Well, she finally agreed. Meet The Picky Dresser. In her words, she's "living life one outfit at a time!"
Update, Sept 12, 2012: Nikki shut down her blog =(
