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!

Here is the link to register for the course, “GET THE MOST… out of what you already have.”

Am I In Your Head?

I often hear this from clients and women from network events;

“When I got dressed this morning I could hear your voice saying wear a colour that suits you.”

“You are always in my head when I get dressed.”

“Your voice is in my head when I am shopping… now what would Karen choose?”

Am I in your head?

These comments are compliments to me because I am ALL about… teaching you to shop with intention, dressing to honour who you are and your body type and bringing awareness to the message you are sending.

Have you downloaded your GIFTS yet? Have you? Have you? Have you? (I feel like Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory).

14 Signs Your Wardrobe is in Great Shape

Spring wardrobeSpring is finally peeking through the rays of the sun and what does this mean? It means time to review what is in your closet and prepare for your summer wardrobe! Here are 14 signs that ensure your closet and wardrobe is in the best shape it can be.

1. Only clothing you can wear in the current season is in your closet. Clothes for the opposite season are stored away.

2. Nearly everything is visible when you open your closet doors. Clothes and accessories aren’t hidden away.

3. Shoes are on shoe racks and every single pair is in good condition.

4. Your dry-cleaning, alterations, shoe and handbag repairs aren’t buried in your closet somewhere. You’ve already dropped them off and they’re ready to be picked up this week.

5. You have outfit combinations that you’re 100% sure about.

6. Your accessories are easy to grab whether they’re in your closet or on a dressing table.

7. Handbags are organized on a shelf or hung on a rack. Stuffing is placed inside of them to help keep their original shape. You’ve recently reconditioned them with leather lotion.

8. All the hangers are the same color and design. No clothing items are being damaged by the use of wire hangers.

9. Clothing is organized in a way that makes sense to you—either by color, type of item or lifestyle category.

10. You have an outfit you could put on in five minutes for any occasion including dressy or casual parties, sporting events, girl’s night out, romantic dinners, interviews, festivals or funerals.

11. All the clothes in your closet are in colors that flatter you and complement your coloring.

12. Everything in your closet fits you now or within a five-pound fluctuation. Anything smaller or larger is stored away or given away.

13. Everything in your closet makes you happy. You’re not hanging on to clothes that don’t suit you or conjure up bad memories or make you feel bad about yourself.

14. You have your image consultant’s phone number on speed dial, and you don’t hesitate to call her when you need help!

Join me the last Wednesday of every month at 7 pm for my teleclass “Three Women With a View.’” The call in number is 1-661-673-8605 access code is: 814245#

This month’s call is “Swing Into Spring.”

My Image Series Presentations are back by popular demand AND at a special Sale into Spring price! When you register for all 6 classes you receive the special price of $49.97 per class. Please click here for more information.

I’d love your feedback. You can connect with me by phone or email, leave a comment right here on the site, or click the contact tab at the bottom of the screen if you are reading this post on the website.

Until next time,

Classic shopping list

  • The moto jacket never looked better and there are many versions to choose from. The one you buy this year will be in style for years to come.
  • Loafers in flats or heels look great with the menswear fabrics of this season plus they’re comfortable and stable compared to a high heel.
