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)
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!
Happy day, dear reader! Who hires an Image and Wardrobe Coach or possibly a Stylist? Not just famous people! There are as many reasons for hiring a professional as there are clients. The reasons generally fall into "fish for me" and "learn to fish" categories. Neither is better than the other! They are just different.… Continue reading Stylists Are Not Just for Famous People
Dear reader, Years ago, my mother-in-law and I were out shopping. We were looking at an overpriced and flat-out ugly item. Her comment was that is was for someone with "more dollars than sense."

We identify ourselves on legal documents by our written signature, and others identify us by our style signature, or signatures. Even a "flaw" can be a signature. Think about Cindy Crawford and her beauty mark. Iris Apfel's enormous round glasses are… Continue reading What’s Your Style Signature?
Back in December, a reporter from our local paper asked me for three tips to look more stylish without leaving the house.

One of the most frequent questions I am asked when people find out that I am an Image and Wardrobe Coach is “Well, how’d I do?” accompanied by a head to toe waving gesture of the hands pointing out their sartorial selection. My answer is usually “That depends… What did you want to say?” A… Continue reading Did I Say That Out Loud?
I dress the way I do because it makes me happy. Some days are "dressier" than others.
