THIS… Is Why I Hired You!

We are in the season of weddings and I know you want to look good too, as the Mother of the Bride or Groom.  It is important for you to be able to enjoy the day and the lead up, with comfort and ease, knowing you look and feel great. You don’t have to be worrying about your outfit because… WE have put it together, together!

This is exactly what happened the other day. I took a client shopping for a dress for her son’s wedding. She knew she wanted elegance, not too fussy since it is at their farm, and she wanted to be able to move and dance in it. In other words, to look beautiful and still be comfortable.

The first step was covered… we know her colour palette. I know her body type and features.  Our saleslady was wonderful and so helpful, however, she kept showing my client styles that SHE liked. Finally, I said, just try it on and let’s see.

One, the fabric was too heavy. A satin that didn’t have movement. Yes, it was elegant but it had a fish tail at the bottom and was too tight on the legs. My client would never be able to dance, twirl and party in this!  Two, this dress had a smooth sheen to it. My client has curly hair, somewhat athletic features and the dress didn’t repeat that.

My client knew something wasn’t quite right (the dress did fit) and as soon as I explained the WHY it did not suit her, she got it!  In fact, she turned to me and said,” THIS is why I wanted you with me today! I knew you would give me honest opinions and know what would and wouldn’t work.”

Then, VOILA, a dress with shirring on the top that mimicked the texture in her hair, a stunning colour to match her vibrant personality (and blended with the wedding party colours), and best of all she could move in it. It was elegant, simple, she could vary the sleeves to cover her shoulders, the tightness in the bodice made her look slimmer and the crystal embellishment at the waist was a perfect touch.  After simple alterations of letting the bodice out a little and hemming the dress, she is set!

I know she is stepping out to fully enjoy the day.

Are you needing to buy a dress for a special occasion? Call me I am happy to guide you through the overwhelm.

I want to give a shout out to the dress shop: EDITH’S 1113 Finch Ave. West, Toronto,  opens at 10 am.  Our saleslady was Mahnaz, truly a lovely person, and a great help. Mahnaz also was right on when she said that some of the dresses we picked out would be too old looking.  She saved us time!

Camouflage Your BBQ Calories!!

How did you do with planning your weekend outfits? What did you do on the weekend? Did it involve patio dinners? BBQ’s? Margueritas? Or my favourite… Cosmopolitan martinis?

Along with summer comes BBQ’s, socializing with friends, which always includes food, and even a stop for ice cream.

I can attest to all of the above after a week with family!

Unfortunately, along with the food and socializing, comes a few extra pounds too.

But wait… don’t get upset with yourself. I have some solutions for you!

**Here are your solutions:  3 Secrets to Looking 5- 10 pounds Slimmer… Instantly!

Now you can relax and totally enjoy summer without being negative toward yourself.

I want you to enjoy our summer season to the fullest and LOOK GOOD doing it!

Enjoy the read while sipping a frozen Marguerita!

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.

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

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 Guilty of Doing This?

Are you a closet fantasizer? A MAYBE, SOMEDAY kinda girl?

You are frustrated with all the items taking up space in your closet and yet when you take out something you haven’t worn in 5 years… at least… you stop and fantasize about where you could wear it?

I hear this all the time from friends and clients. Hey… I can admit even I have done it!

Well, I COULD wear this on Hallowe’en sometime.

Or… this could be cute for a party on a cruise ship, if they have a theme party that is.

If I hold on to this…

  1. I might go to New York for lunch.
  2. I might be able to wear this to a New Years party, even though it is out of style and I freeze in it.
  3. I might wear it at the beach, cleaning the car, painting.
  4. I had better hold on… this … MIGHT happen!

If you are being a someday, what if, kind of person, I am breaking the news to you. If it hasn’t happened now, there is a strong chance it never will.

And, wouldn’t you prefer looking up to date, and happy in what suits you now?

Time to l-e-t- it go!! Tug, tug… actually, I am here to hold your hand and gently help you to step out of your scarcity, what if, frame of mind.

Join me in my next class, From Closet Chaos to Wardrobe Bliss. It is on Tuesday May 23 @ 8pm, from the comfort of your own home!

5 Invaluable Questions For Anyone With Too Many Clothes

Are you one of those women with too many clothes and still nothing to wear?

Why do you think you continue to buy clothes when you have so many?

Is your closet so crammed that you just can’t see in your” forest” of clothes, what can go with what?

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?

4.    Does it flatter me? In colour? For my body type?

5.    Is it functional for my lifestyle?

I am offering an online class called From Closet Chaos to Wardrobe Bliss and would love to have you join me!
