Stylists Are Not Just for Famous People

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

Are You a Seasonal Slob?

Some of the nicest people I know are! Happy day, dear reader! I know a woman who calls herself a Seasonal Slob. She is a summer-loving lady, even when that means 95 degree heat and 95% humidity. She does better in the warm weather and hates to be cold. If you met her in the… Continue reading Are You a Seasonal Slob?
