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.

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.

YOU Could Have This Too!

Hello from North Bay. I zipped up for three days to help my sister and of course to swim and visit. Also, it was to escape the extra hot, humid weather of the south.

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!!

Don’t Give Your Booties the Boot… 5 Tips on How to Wear Booties.

You’ve seen them in store windows and on women of all ages: booties or shoe boots as I call them.
They look cute on others but you aren’t sure if you can wear them.
You have doubts. I bet I can guess what you’re thinking. Am I too old to wear booties?
How do people wear booties with socks?
Should I get a slouchy one or a slim one?
What kind of pants do you wear booties?
Will they go out of style?

Lots of questions but lucky for you, I have lots of answers. Booties offer style solutions and they are not going out of style anytime soon!

  1. If you choose booties in a colour such as burgundy, teal or red, then connect the colour to your outfit in another piece of clothing or an accessory.
  2. Booties in light colours, such as sand or taupe can be worn with winter white or similar taupe colours.
  3. They also look great with darker denims or pants as a contrasting colour, especially if you are tall and can spare the height.
  4. Choose a bootie that relates to your hair colour, so it brings the eye of the observer up to your face and hair. This will tie almost any outfit together.
  5. Booties in metallic shades can add glitz or glamour or dressiness to any outfit.
  6. Ankle booties that are low cut in the vamp are great for slim over-the-knee pencil skirts. This bootie style elongates the leg.

Have some fun trying on various styles and wear an outfit you think you would like to pair them with.
Or… call me ! I am happy to go Bootie shopping with you!
