It’s All About YOU Not Me

April 26th, 2012

 

Why choose me as your Image Consultant?

My job is to be honest with you about how something looks on you and I ask that you be honest with me about your likes and dislikes.  I don’t make commission from clothes you purchase and we can go to several stores rather than be tied to one store or one brand.  If you choose not to buy anything it doesn’t bother me.

We discuss your wardrobe needs and put together clothes and accessories currently in your closet to mesh your looks rather than purchase an entire wardrobe if you so choose.  I help you put together different looks with pieces of clothing at the best value for you.  The new image for you will be one that represents you as a unique person and clothes that you feel comfortable in.

Do I want you to be my client on a regular basis?  Absolutely!  But I want you to learn to feel confident dressing for yourself and enhancing your personal image.

That’s my job to make you shine.  It is all about you, not me.

 

 

Eyelashes Right Before Your Very Eyes

April 18th, 2012

 

I have short eyelashes so I’m always looking for the latest and greatest way to get long luxurious lashes. Long and luxurious was not what awaited me, but it was closer to the zillions of mascaras I’d tried before. The first mascara I tried is ‘They’re Real!’ by Benefit Cosmetics. They’re designed to lengthen, separate, and dramatically curl your lashes. They truly did lengthen and separate and I did get some curl. I had to apply more than one coat. I’d give it kudos since I really noticed a true difference. I purchased my mascara at Sephora for $22 and if you don’t have a Sephora near by, you can purchase it on line at benefitcosmetics.com.

Another one I’ve heard about, but not tried is called ‘Better Than False Lashes’ by Too Faced Cosmetics. They use unique flexistretch nylon fibers; the coats melt and seal together, building out lashes that are long, glossy, and sleek. You can purchase this at Sephora or Sephora.com for $35.

Since I always want to be ready and out the door in 20 minutes to enjoy life I want to try “Cry Baby” mascara. However it has to be applied at a salon by a professional. It’s a semi-permanent lash-coating process and can last up to two weeks with volume, curl and color as opposed to traditional tints. It’s for women who don’t want to take the time to apply mascara daily or have trouble wearing mascara with contact lens. It’s cost is $25 & up. Check out the CryBabyMascara.com website for salon locations.

I’m going to try all 3, but I’ll take it “one lash at a time.” Let me know what you think.

 

 

 

 

I Have The Best Job EVER! I’m an “Epistemologist”

April 11th, 2012

 

If I could do it for free I would (the operative word is “if” so don’t think I am doing it for free unless I hit the lottery)!  I work with brilliant people from Moms to Executives to Professors all having different jobs and views of the world.  My last client, a woman who has a PHD and is soon speaking in Washington DC, went shopping for her upcoming event.  Later, after we were worn out from shopping, we had a drink and a great deal of discussion about my Image Consultant career and her career. She works with the science of saving the environment, internationally.  We talked about how ALL jobs are important no matter your background and it all comes down to your intent.

What is interesting is that my diverse clients hire me for the same reason- to reinvent themselves in different ways.  They come from different walks of life but the intent is the same-reinvention.

She had a scientific name for me, an “Epistemologist,” (hmmmm it sounds like the study of bugs or a pretty serious title for an Image Consultant)! Definition: the branch of philosophy that studies the nature of knowledge, its presuppositions and foundations, and its extent and validity.

I had no idea that I could be labeled in a scientific way.

I ask a lot of questions (ask my husband & kids) to understand who my client is and what they want.  I want my clients to answer it from within rather than me deciding for them.  I can offer suggestions and ask them to open up to new ideas, but they are the one in charge.  I don’t make commission from clothing sales so I can be totally honest.  I want the very best for my clients in their personal journey for reinvention.

The Heat IS ON

April 7th, 2012

 

I have a week of meetings with social events in the evening, where do I start with what to wear?  I have no time to shop.  I have a busy schedule and I need to be ready.

Here’s how:

Create a table with columns as seen below.  Check your closet and list the outfits you can wear accordingly to the events in the columns from bottom to top along with accessories.  List all that you need for the event such as accessories, shoes, etc so you pack everything.  Know the weather as well.

Then make a list of your needed items and shop for them.  Call me, we’ll work on it together!

 

Day Event Day Wear Evening Wear
Monday Presentation Brown suit w/taupe blouse,nude shoes
Party Silver Satin Dress
Tuesday Sightseeing Shorts, red top, Sandals, Earrings
Casual Night Jeans & orange top
