Looking Longer & Leaner

February 23rd, 2011

When was the last time you were measured buy an expert for a bra?  Many women assume they are the same size since high school or even a year ago so they don’t bother to get refitted. Wearing the correct size bra can make you look taller and leaner by creating room in your torso. Some women complain about their back hurting or their straps digging in.  A great bra will make your clothes lay nicer too. A few stores to get fitted by an expert are Nordstroms, Dillard’s or right here in Austin Petticoat Fair Intimate Apparel.

3 Minute Rule

February 16th, 2011

Haven’t we all spotted an item of clothing in the store that we just have to have?  Whether it’s the latest trend or a color we love to wear. After you get home you hang it in your closet and wait for the right time to wear it.  Possibly when you do wear it you feel awkward or you just don’t know what to wear it with.  One piece of advice I give my clients is “when trying on clothing in the store and if you take more than 3 minutes to talk yourself into purchasing, it’s most likely going to stay in your closet or you’ll wear it only once”.   Try this advice, it works!


Everyone is selling themselves in the workplace.

Part of my presentations to companies address dos and don’ts for the workplace.     Even if your job title is not  “salesperson” you are continually selling yourself and your company.  It’s gaining respect from clients as well as managers, subordinates & peers.  Non-verbal communication and appearance are both significant communicators!

Color Analysis

February 2nd, 2011

Have you ever had a color analysis of your skin to understand which undertone you are?  As part of the analysis you’d receive a packet of warm or cool color swatches to help choose the appropriate colors for your wardrobe.  It’s difficult to find clothes that fit style-wise let alone color-wise.  Even the color black,  as easy as people think it is to wear, can swallow one,  yet enhance another.  I feel the right combination has more to do with the correct hair color and make-up.  Part of my job is to choose colors that look best on you.  If you love a certain color and it doesn’t enhance your face,  I’ll be honest with you so we can add that dash of color as an accessory.
