I Embody Grace and Frankie

Have you watched the Grace & Frankie series on Netflix? If not, I encourage you to do so.
It is so funny and I so relate to them… hot flashes, online dating, ex-husbands, adult children and friendship.

I feel I am Grace on the outside and Frankie on the inside. Let me explain… as you know I am an Image Consultant.
What you may not know is that I am a Reiki Master and Healer. I heal women using the tools of Image Consulting to build confidence, self-love and style discovery.
I use Reiki, meditation, Angel cards and life experience to release energy blocks that are keeping women STUCK and unable to move forward in business, life and love.
I have taken classes in Aboriginal ways & teachings, so I can relate to Frankie when she is smudging, shaking rattles or drumming.
Yet I can easily pull out my inner Grace when I dress for networking, presentations and videos.
Do you have a Grace & Frankie in you?

I am excited to offer a set of classes called 7 Steps to Confidence & Success with Style. They will begin in December.
In them you will uncover your personality style and will learn what really does call to you in style. I even will share my formula for curing the morning closet crisis. Those are just 2 of the classes.
I am offering a VERY SPECIAL deal on Black Friday, Nov. 24.
If you worked with me one to one, these 7 classes would cost you $1750. In group workshops the investment is $700 and online I previously offered them for $397.
On BLACK FRIDAY, I am offering the classes for $147!!
I suggest you jump in and register when the webpage opens for purchasing!
I have limited spaces in order for me to best serve those who register.

Remove Yourself From the Chaos With Comfort Clothes

I am not a person who watches the news or reads newspapers. However, when I log into my email, headlines pop up on the screen.
The other morning as I waited at Canadian Tire for some car work, news of more hurricanes and destruction was playing.
I do believe the chaos in the weather patterns, is a reflection of the human chaos in the world at large.
Being a Reiki practitioner, I often sit in meditation and send love to the world and hold my small space of light.

We can start sending calm and love to the world by first beginning with ourself.
Self-love is so important and world -love, begins with us. One person at a time.

What do you do to give back to yourself?
How do you give self-love back to you?

I saw this pair of cozy, knit fleece pants at Walmart and they called to me saying, “Cozy, warm, relaxing. Let me hug you.”

I know I will thoroughly enjoy them on cold mornings this winter or curling up to read in the evenings.

What kind of clothing gives you a hug? What do you relax in?
I would love to receive your comments.

Weekend Warrioress Outfits! = WWO

What are YOU doing this weekend? I am in Thunder Bay and exploring the city. Or… walking at Mission Marsh or Centennial Park, all with the Grandkids and maybe a Grand-dog too.

This means comfortable shoes and layers since we usually start out in the morning and it heats up by afternoon.

(LOL… maybe! It is Thunder Bay!)

I used my Wardrobe Module Chart to help me plan and pack for the week I am here.

You TOO can get this when you register for my Master Class,” GET THE MOST… out of the clothes you already have!”

** Register here

Why is this class $97.00? It is a Master Class. It is one of the foundational components you will use over and over again. In other words… IT IS WORTH IT AND MORE!

Here are some comments from after the class.

“I want to get into my closet NOW! I am so excited to put things together.”

“It’s so simple. Why didn’t I think of that before?”

“You de-mystified mixing and matching for me. I am impressed.”

I hope you follow me on Facebook too since I often do a Facebook live from various places when I travel. If you get the chance to visit Thunder Bay, you can try out some of my favourite places. The International House of Tea, The Mystic Garden, The Madhouse Restaurant (for Fish tacos!!) and many more. Watch my videos!

Happy Fri Yeah! Gifts For YOU!!

I noticed some of you have not downloaded my offering of 21 Ways to Say Good-bye.

Well I have another gift waiting for you as well. It is a recording of the webinar, 3 Golden Closet Rules.

This webinar gives you 3 important tips on what to keep in your closet so it makes your editing decisions much easier.

** Get your gift here

As I was perusing through my summer wardrobe, I thought I would try mixing up some new with older pieces, to make outfits for the weekend.

I plan to be entertaining grand kids and here are 2 outfits that I feel I can wear to enjoy time in the park with them. Plus, I like my clothes to give me energy if I need them too (that is by adding WOOD energy from Fashion Feng Shui) and wearing clothes with stretch and ease of movement does that!

Here is what I plan to wear:

  1. White knit capris from Nygard. Floral, flowy top from Nygard collection.
  2. Denim capris from HUE. Navy and white striped top from Old Navy.
  3. And of course a comfortable pair of sandals by Sketcher, in navy.

Take time to make the most of wearing what is in your closet. What do you want the outfit for? Attending a BBQ? Driving to explore a scenic town? Walks in the park?

You won’t know what is in your closet, if you don’t spend some time giving it TLC.

It’s Not Too Late!

Well here we are heading into July already and even thought the weather has been sporadically sunny, the general energy is that of slowing down to enjoy summer.

This may free up some time for you to do some editing in your closet.

This Spring, I offered a complimentary download called, “Wave Good-bye! 21 Reasons to Let Go!”

Many women say they can’t get started, the job is too big, or they can’t let go of things. This download gives you 21 baby steps to take so you don’t have to tackle it all at once unless you want to.

** Download it here!

It isn’t too late to de-clutter your closet. In fact, it’s never too late!

Perhaps you will discover a new way to wear an item. For example, how about pairing your jean jacket over a dress or summer skirt?

Maybe you will find a treasure in your jewelry box, like a statement necklace, that will update a t-shirt or top.

** Click here for your GIFT of Wave Good-bye. 21 Reasons to Let Go.

And… if you are kicking back on a rainy day, watch my webinar 3 Golden Closet Rules.

You will be inspired even more!

From PREDICTABLE to PDA!

I just had a wonderful conversation with a woman, explaining what it is I do, since she was over to interview me before signing me up to speak at their store. Our conversation gave me the idea for this story.

I was so happy to know she loves wearing colour and therefore really stands out in her family.

She is sad that her sister lives in black and yoga pants. And… she said that now her Mother has retired, she has given up!

“She is PREDICTABLE and BORING. All she does is throw on a pair of pants and a t-shirt! She has lost a reason to dress with some interest since she says she is ONLY at home.”

”What message is her Mother sending to herself, her husband, her family and her friends?” I ask.

“I have given up.” is her look!

Is that you? Are you predictable, plain and boring to yourself and your family?

I am here to hold your hand and take you out of that rut! Have some FUN in your life and in your closet!

How to Make Summer Event Wardrobe Worries Disappear

Summer is fast approaching and with it comes weddings, BBQ parties, pool parties etc.

As a fashion and wardrobe coach, I hear from my clients about the things that stress them out and getting dressed for summer events is one of them.

I want you to feel at ease with yourself and stress-free. Let’s see if I can help you do that!

“I’m worried about looking appropriate for an upcoming event.”

Events can be a bit tricky, as you’re not only dressing for the event; you’re dressing for the venue, the people, and the weather. The first thing to do when starting to plan your look for an event is to study the invitation. Does it have a dress code on it alerting you to the type of outfit you should be wearing? Is the invitation design formal or informal? Every invitation holds clues for you.

The next thing you can do is research the location of the event. Google is your friend here. Look up what the weather will be like during the days you’ll be there or how the weather normally behaves during that time of year. What will also help is to look at the venue’s website for photos of previous events held at this location. Even though you may be attending an event in a barn, you may see by the photos that elegant parties are the norm.

By researching these different factors, you can more confidently figure out an outfit that you’d feel comfortable in and one that would be appropriate for the setting as well.

Of course, if you have been following me, you know I will recommend that you wear outfits that compliment your skin undertone and your body shape. Those alone will help boost your confidence.

Need help putting outfits together? Call me. I would love to assist you! 905-775-7486

How would you like to have style input every day? For less than buying a cup of coffee?

STYLE For Your SOUL membership site is coming soon. You will have:

  • access to videos
  • fashion templates
  • a private community of other Style Soulistas
  • FREE style webinars
  • Style training
  • Monthly Q&A calls
  • A roadmap of systems and practices because style is a journey of self-discovery

If you follow my videos on Facebook, I would love it if you would comment and share the ones that strike your fancy! www.facebook.com/KarendorlandImageConnections

 

 

Too Hot For Capris or Jeans?

What Are You Wearing This Holiday Weekend?

It is the May long weekend here in Ontario and the weather is finally matching the date!

Are you traveling to a cottage? Visiting friends? Maybe sightseeing?

Here in Barrie, it is beautiful to walk at the waterfront and the restaurants with their street patios are pulsing with energy.

What do you wear to enjoy a weekend or dinner outside at your local restaurant?

Are you already finding it a challenge to know what to wear in the heat and still feel comfortable and in style?

I am going to share my “go to” dresses with you! I really enjoy wearing longer dresses. They fall nicely to cover my tummy area, and cover my legs. So I look dressy, yet relaxed.

Yes, being only 5’0, can sometimes pose a problem with finding long dresses, however, they are out there!

For a cool evening, you can pair your dress with the popular look of a jean jacket.

Does Your Closet Support Your Superwoman Life?

Wouldn’t it be great to stand in your closet, twirl around and ZAP! You are in your desired outfit of the day!

Or, feel like you can conquer or save the world, because the outfit you are wearing makes you feel so confident!

How do you want to feel in your clothes?

Are you able to reach in and grab an outfit that you know supports your colouring, body type and role for that day?

Do you have mix and match items that are easy to see?

We are in a society of multi-tasking and really are Superwomen; running a home, making meals, working a business, maybe raising children, learning technology and being in relationship.

When your closet supports you…you can quickly and easily have clothes ready for the day. It is organized and… holds only the items that fit you, are clean and mended and are for the current season for the time of year.

When your clothing supports you… the colour is flattering on you, the items suit your body shape and your personality. YOU shine as the SUPER woman that you are!

It takes little time, no stress and you smile as you look in the mirror, before flying off to be the heroine of the day!

To make your life easier consider this:
