Did You Know…The Greatest Fear For Women Over 50+?

We are given to believe most women just worry about ageing and getting wrinkles and lines.

However, most women over 50 toss and turn worrying about how they will survive financially in their later years. We are living longer and with divorce so prevalent and more widowed women, it does lend cause for concern.

What does this have to do with fashion and style?

I am here to remind you that your clothing choices can support you in looking smart, savvy and relevant!

Are you looking to keep your current job?

Are you being interviewed for a job?

Do you own a business?  Are you in network marketing and are building a team?

I can help you dress to attract in clients and therefore more success. I can help you dress to build your confidence so you can step into your possibilities.

Confidence, self-esteem and looking current means you are not dismissed because of your ‘age.’

Here are several steps to begin:

  1. Sign up for my newsletter and receive tips and ideas.
  2. Book a complimentary “Discover Your Style” call.  We can get to know your needs and situation better. You can ask me questions.
  3. Visit my website www.imageconnections.ca and download all my free offerings. There are many ideas for you to build on.
  4. Purchase my e-book “From Closet Chaos to Wardrobe Bliss.” It is full of ideas and questions to walk you through a closet edit and makes you think before you buy! $9.97
  5. Register for the master class,”GET THE MOST… from the clothes you already have.”

You will discover how to make wardrobe modules that will simplify getting dressed each day. I show you how to build professional modules for work too. You receive templates and the Key to 3 on how to look pulled together. You will refer to this class over and over again!

I too have wondered where I will be when I am 70. It is good to speak with a financial advisor and voice your concerns. Let your family know how you feel too. The last thing to do is think you are alone.

Yours In Style,

Karen

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?

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.

To get started on discovering styles for the summer, I invite you to join me in a closet edit, so you know what is hiding in there!

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:

Here are some questions to write down on a card and post in your closet. Or… print this off and have it ready.

Then each time you reach in and take out something that makes you go “ummm?” Ask yourself these…

1.    Does it fit me? NOW?

2.    Have I worn it in the past year?

3.    If I saw it in a store, would I buy it again?

3 Closet Cleaning Tips You May NOT Know!

Is your closet out of control?

Do you experience stress each time you open the doors?

Do you waste precious time and energy each morning trying to choose an outfit?

Do you feel overwhelmed at the thought of de-cluttering your closet and sorting through all the years of memories, poor purchases and body changes and sizes?

Here are 3 ways to help you navigate without getting over stressed and … to help you stay on track.

  1. Backwards: Everytime you wear something, hang it up with the hangar facing backwards. This way you will be able to see what you have worn. The trick is NOT to wear it again until you have gone through most of the clothes in your closet, that you wear often. Then, you can see what hasn’t been touched.
  2. Out of sight, out of mind: Try on clothes and those that don’t fit or are out of style, can  be put in a garbage bag and placed in the back of your closet or in a storage area. If you haven’t opened that bag in a year, then promise yourself to toss it. You probably won’t even miss what is in there!
  3. Limit your hangars: Have only a certain amount of hangars in your closet holding the clothes that fit you NOW!! When you buy something new, you have to get rid of something before you can hang the new item in your closet. This is wonderful if you have limited closet space.

Fire and Wood…How Do You Show up?

We show up wherever we are! Yes, that is true.

Your personality and how you do things shows up in your closet, in your purse, in your actions, your communications, your appearance and even in your personal features.

I am beginning to add my Fashion Feng Shui expertise into my work with clients… especially as I have been taking a face reading course with Michelle Butt. Check out her site here www.michellebutt.com.

The face reading goes hand in hand with my Fashion Feng Shui (FFS) and I get so excited so see the co-relation.

Let me demonstrate in my story of my last client. I went to help her clean out her closet and create new outfits from what she already had.

I knew from her curly hair and dimples that she had FIRE energy and the fact she is an ever- ready energizer bunny, I knew her second essence is Wood.

That showed up BIG TIME, when she time after time would toss a filmy, floaty top onto the give away pile and say,” That is so not me. Don’t know why I bought it.”

 

They were representative of WATER energy and is deep and flowing. She wouldn’t feel in control wearing these. So, they didn’t resonate with them.

Having my background in FFS, plus now, the face reading, I understand. I could put together outfits to represent her personality, her colouring and the textures
in her features.

In fact, she was shocked at some things I suggested and although a little resistant at first, she tried them, laughed and said,” I would NEVER have thought of this, but I like it.” Those words are music to my ears!!

Next… I asked where she wanted to take her business. Well, she wants to be seen more. AAAh… then we add more FIRE with colour. Plus, she wants to look organized, detailed (which she is but we need it to show in her appearance) and she wants to earn more money!! Then METAL is definitely going to be added to her wardrobe.

She will need some grounding as well and the EARTH element will help with that.

I want to acknowledge my dear friend and client, Tammy for this story.

If you are in business as an MLM leader, a coach or in wellness, then I highly encourage you to book a FREE consultation with me to know what you need added to your life to take you where you want to be.

Or… if you are interested in wanting more energy, fun or money in your life… book your free consultation too!!

What’s LOVE Got To Do With It? 3 Ways to Bring Love into Your Wardrobe

Wouldn’t it be fun to wake up every day and put on something you love? Wouldn’t it brighten your day and make you feel happy?

That experience is absolutely possible.

I’ve got a few ways you can use that powerful love force and infuse your wardrobe with it so you’re happy to meet the day.

  1. Shop for what you love

In order to have a wardrobe that’s filled with what you love you may need to change up your shopping habits. If you’re shopping on the run, you may be grabbing “just any old thing” rather than allowing yourself the time to try things on, look in the mirror and ask yourself the question, “Do I love this?” Or if you are taking the time to try things on, are you settling for the same old thing instead of exploring new possibilities? The best thing to do is give yourself some time to explore and have fun with clothes. Don’t settle for “okay” when you could enjoy clothing pieces and accessories that put a smile on your face every time you wear it.

  1. Display what you love

People have collections of things they love. It could be figurines of specific animals. Maybe it’s a wall of framed horticultural prints. Some people fall in love with a city and want to be reminded of it all the time. You can take those subjects you love and look for them in prints. How about a blouse with your favorite flower or a knit sweater with the image of your favorite animal woven in? Or a scarf depicting your favorite city? Many people gain much pleasure when they adorn themselves in things they already love.

  1. Satisfy your love of details

Look at your wardrobe or look through a fashion magazine. Are there details that you just love? Maybe you love vintage details. You may fancy lace, ruffles, bows, tucks, appliqués. Maybe you love urban details like studs, fringe, or grommets. Indulge your love of details and look for new ways to have them in your wardrobe. If it’s studs you like, look for them in handbags, shoes or boots, or on the hemlines of skirts.

LOL… can you guess what I LOVE to collect as a pattern in my clothes?

My goal is to have every woman LOVE who she sees in the mirror!

If you need some help to find the love in your closet, call me I would LOVE to help!

How to Express Your Passions Through Fashion This 2017!

At the beginning of each New Year we focus on our goals for business, health, home and spiritual.

Sometimes we lose sight of ourselves in all the great plans.

In Fashion Feng Shui, we set an intention that we would like to bring out in our appearance. Fashion is an easy way to do that.

There is a plethora of styles and prints to choose from. So, let’s get personal with some prints that match your hobbies, interests or passions. Wear images that inspire you!

Love to write? Read?

You may carry a journal with you. Or, you have downloaded books that you can’t wait to get into this winter.

Wear clothing that bear messages. Appreciate your favourite font in a unique piece of clothing.

World Cultures & Travel?

You aren’t satisfied on a seven block radius in your neighborhood. Your goals include figuring out how to make a living writing a travel blog. Bring out your travel enthusiasm by wearing African prints, Asian inspired kimonos and dresses influenced by the rich colours of India.

Pictures of flower gardens dance in your head?

Your library is filled with botanical picture books. You have visited Monet’s gardens and you are pouring over seed catalogues for the spring.

Choose to wear florals in small or large bloom scale. Cardigans, dresses and tops can show off your passion for all things floral.

Love animals?

Your goal includes a trip to Africa next year. Or maybe you are headed to the rain forest? Stay inspired by wearing leggings in a zebra print. Or try an animal print scarf with your coat. There is an abundance of prints out there to wear during the day or silky pyjamas by night.

5 Fashion Tips to Take You into Spring

It’s that time of year: the weather’s unpredictable, allergies are acting up, and spring fashions are just coming in… but THIS WEATHER!! It jumps from warm to cold so quickly, how can one be prepared? Here’s a little study guide to help you take baby steps toward warm weather fashion.

Cardigans can move into springIMG_1308

Cashmere sweaters or cardigans can be a great choice heading into spring, even summer, especially when they are in lighter colors and/or are lightweight. Reach for them as great layering pieces for when days are flip flopping between warm and cold.

Boots keep on giving

Not only are boots great for the fall/winter fashion season, but they also march right into spring months. Boots, especially in lighter colors, make great companions to skirts and dresses. Ankle booties are sweet with rolled up jeans or when worn with a knit skirt and a chambray top.

Scarves and ponchos may be your go to accessoryIMG_1309

A great way to add spring colours to your wardrobe for a small investment is a colourful print scarf. Keep wearing wool ones if they don’t look too heavy or too dark. It might be time to shift to scarves in silk, cotton, or linen. I love to wear a poncho or wrap at this time of year. It adds a layer of warmth over my spring jacket and if it gets too warm by afternoon, all I need is the poncho.

Outsmart the weather with layers

When the weather can jump 20 degrees in spring days, you have to dress smart. Smart layering is the answer. Be sure your outfit looks cute with or without that outer layer because you could be taking it on and off a few times in a single day. Look for cardigans or crocheted sweaters, and of course a poncho or wrap. My other find this year are vests. Down-filled over a sweater, or a cosy fuzzy one will add a little extra warmth.

Black is forever green… what Karen?

Your black clothing items do not have to hibernate in the spring and summer months. They are great year round and can be part of your outfit…. When worn as a bottom piece. Help black shift into spring by adding a spot of colour in an accessory. Or do some colour blocking by wearing a black pant with a geranium red or turquoise top.
