Happy day, dear reader! One of the most common questions I get is about whether items "match" or not. "Can I wear this dress with these shoes?" "Does this shirt go with these pants?" There are various aspects to "matching" that have to do with color. (If you want to find out more about color… Continue reading Leveling Up or Down
Happy day, dear reader! A client texted me the other day with a dressing room selfie, asking what I thought. (Yes, this is something I do for my clients, although I can't always answer right away!) She was trying on a top that was not her everyday style. It suited her coloring, and body shape,… Continue reading Style It Three Ways!
Happy day, dear reader! I hope your day has been full of only pleasant surprises! Over the weekend, I had an unpleasant surprise of my own doing. Sometimes we make planning mistakes. Even when we (think) we know ourselves, we don't always remember our quirks... In my case: Especially when it's been more than six… Continue reading Lesson Learned
Happy day, dear reader! I hope you are well. Spring has officially sprung for us here! This past week I was at a local consignment shop picking up some unsold items at the end of their run.

One of my favorite things is when a client goes "Aaah, I get it!" because that means they see something they didn't see before. Often, they have bought a look right off… Continue reading Tips to Make a Look Yours (Customizing Inspiration!)
Hello dear reader, It is a time-consuming labor of love creating content and visuals three days a week for a blog. Just over a week ago it was made even harder by the buy-out and closure of Polyvore, a platform used by bloggers galore, and tens of thousands of other creative people around the world… Continue reading RIP Polyvore
Happy day, dear reader! Each Sunday night, I post a Sunday Night Reminder & Monday Morning Outfit Inspiration for my FB business page followers. One woman mentioned to me that she loves the ideas, but never sets her clothes out the night before because she doesn't know what kind of mood she'll be in the… Continue reading Mood Dressing (Take 2)
Happy day, dearest reader! It's April and I am just over a month into this 80/20 Spring Capsule experiment, so it's time to take a step back and see how it is working... For those of you new to my blog, the 80/20 is my capsule wardrobe version of the Pareto Principle; I chose 20… Continue reading 80/20 Capsule Update (One Month In)
Hello, dear reader! Aging is no reason to loose your style groove. Women (and men!) in middle-age (or above) complain that it is hard to find clothing that doesn't feel frumpy. I get it. About 50 years ago, fashion became the playground of the young. It was not always that way. As a child, I remember… Continue reading Stay Stylish!
