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).

These gifts will help you to make getting dressed much easier and faster.

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!

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!

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!

Are You Sabotaging Yourself?

Join me Tuesday Feb. 7 at 11 a.m. or Wednesday Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. for my webinar called G.O.A.L.S.

Have you ever found yourself excited to set your goals and then 3 to 5 days into it, you make excuses and stop?  Then, it’s a never ending conversation of negativity in your head, beating yourself up because you didn’t continue.

Do you know that changing your appearance or at least tweaking some things can assist you in sticking to your goals?

Let’s take daily exercise for an example. If you put your exercise clothes out the night before, so you can easily jump into them in the morning, your brain knows these clothes can allow movement and your body feels more energetic in them.
When you do this daily, it sets a routine in your mind and body as well as with yourself.

Would you like to save money this year to go on vacation?  Once you learn how to shop your closet and buy according to your colour and personality style, you will think twice and save more!

I am surrounded with beautiful friends who desire to attract in romance this year. Are you one of them?  Perhaps you have a significant other in your life and you want to rekindle the romance spark. YES!  You can do that in many ways… register to find out! It’s FREE!

Where do you want to be in 2017?
In this webinar I teach you some ‘Fashion Fixes’ to help you get to the next level in what you would like to attract in this year.

You can register at my websitewww.imageconnections.ca or click on the link here:http://imageconnections.ca/goals-webinar/

Wishing you all the best in 2017!

Who Do You Love Mama…Who Do You Love?

Welcome to February, the month of love. I am super excited because I totally love astrology and Mars, the fiery male planet, and Venus, the female planet of love, are merging together in Aries!!  Too much non-sense information?

Well not if I want to bring more love into your life… and I always do. I want you to fall in love with the person in the mirror.

Do you remember what  it feels like to be in love, in the beginning? The buoyant feeling you have. The excitement and the smiles. Wondering … what will I wear when we go out?  We actually spent time fussing over ourselves and putting outfits together. What happened?

Well you might say, menopause hit, I got divorced, my partner passed away, I became ill, I retired or I became a grandparent.  Whatever “The Life” happened to you, I am here to get you back on the self-love track.

Let’s start with what you have, your body.

In my last 2 videos, I talked about how negative women can be to themselves. Our self talk is a litany of “Don’t likes.”  We compare ourselves to other women and… often to younger women!

This month, in fact, today, I want you to highlight a feature about yourself that you LOVE.  Maybe it’s your décolleté. Are you wearing pieces that flatter your chest? Start wearing blouses with necklines that are flattering. Or add a statement necklace to your simple rounded neck top.

 

Perhaps you have long legs that you love. Wear pants in all kinds of fabrics like, velvet, jacquard and the new denim that is surfacing this spring.  Bring some loving attention to your body and highlight areas that make you feel like a ten!

 

 

It IS possible and I am here to help. Call me and we will work on this together.

BIG news for February:

To start you on your way to Spring fashion, I have 2 great FREE on-line events coming up.

  1. G.O.A.L.S  webinar. Discover some Fashion Fixes that you can implement right away and start attracting in goals you may have set this year. Goals like, lose weight, eat healthier, finding love, attracting in clients and saving money.
  2. Step Into Style 101… a 21 Day Style Challenge. Here is where you get a sneak peek into how I work one to one with clients. Jump into some of the questions and see what you discover. Try taking some baby steps into change. I will be right beside you because I am offering a private facebook group where I can answer questions and give more tips.

Both of these are FREE!! So register today!
Here is the link for the G.O.A.L.S. webinar, Step Into Style 101 will follow, so watch for it.

Thank you for sharing and liking my videos and remember I am also on Facebook LIVE on Sundays at 7 pm, EST. My show is called STYLIN SUNDAYS.

 

3 More Style Recipes to Let Your Personality Shine

Yes, it is dress-up and party time! And… time to let your STYLE personality come out!.

Enter… YOU! Your personality deserves to shine and what a better way than wearing an outfit that matches who you are.

In my last blog, I gave 3 style recipes, a dramatic, a feminine and a funky. Here are 3 more to choose from.

  • Go for a Classic vibe. Black and white items like to play together. It could be a black pleated skirt and a white satin blouse, or a column of black under a white wool coat.  If you are a warm palette, you may want to try a buttery cream column of colour under a brown or navy jacket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Are you a Minimalist? You could wear a black turtleneck, cigarette pants, and pointy toed kitten heels. In my case, I would choose a column of grey and grey snakeskin look shoes. If you are a warm palette, try all brown or deep eggplant. In this case less is more.

  • How about Glamorous for the New Year? Think movie star glamour and pull out you faux fur cape or jacket to wear over your red hot dress. Add a shade of red that blends with but doesn’t match your red dress.  Wear nude coloured pumps to keep the attention closer to your face. You will be turning heads!

Wishing you Prosperity, Good Health and Joy in 2017! Now… go get your GLAM on!

What is Your Festive STYLE Personality?

Well the season is upon us and whether it’s for a holiday party, a special occasion, or a last minute “Want to meet for drinks?” invitation, you don’t want to waste time fussing over your outfit.

You WANT to be able to open your closet and create a memorable outfit that matches your style personality!  Then all you need to do is take care of the hair and make-up. Well what is that you ask? Let me help!

Here are 3 fancy, festive style recipes I have whipped up for you.

  • Try on a Dramatic look. From your closet choose the brightest, boldest tunic top you have. Pair it with a leather jegging or a dark denim ankle jean. Throw on some sexy shoes and call it party time… Forget something? Yes, a true dramatic would be wearing bold accessories as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • How about a soft Feminine vibe?  Opposite from the dramatic…Wear separates in soft, blush tones. Try mixing up your fabrics to combine shiny surfaces and matte. Add your vintage diamonds (circonias) and you will be irresistible.

 

  • Try a Funky outfit. Dress up your dark, slim jeans with patterned or colourful pumps. Add a silky blouse, open at the neck where your blingy, statement necklace will be dancing with the light.  You will be dancing too with the excitement of knowing you look so great!

I am full of creative ideas for STYLE recipes! I love mixing and matching outfits to my clients’ personalities and occasions. Give me a call 905-775-7486 or email Karen@imageconnections.ca

This is a perfect time to be party ready.
