Push Your Sleeves Up

How To Push Your Sleeves Up!

Push Your Sleeves Up

For all the women who have worked with me and/or attended my presentations, you know how much I say… “don’t forget to push your sleeves up.”

Why?

Because an outfit looks much, much better when you push your sleeves up.

Before I was known as the stylist who helps women stop stressing about dressing, I wanted to be known as the Push Your Sleeves Up Stylist…that’s how much I love the look of sleeves pushed up.

But sleeves don’t always cooperate, so check out this sleeve saving gadget.

It’s called CuffedUp, and it has me pumped up!

No more sleeves falling down, getting in your food or making short arms look even shorter.

AND you can use it on pants hem too!!!

Men will love CuffedUp too.

When your sleeves are pushed up, your outfit will look considerably more stylish and polished.

Plus it makes you look thinner and taller.

Don’t believe me? Just go in front of a mirror and push one sleeve up and you’ll
see exactly what I mean.

The video below shows how the CuffedUp works.

How To Organize Handbags

How To Organize Handbags In Your Closet

 

 

As the temps get cooler, you’re going to need to start finding and wearing the clothes that will keep you warm and cozy. But just because the leaves are dropping doesn’t mean our clothes and bags need to be falling too.

Here’s where I’m going with this…

Recently I looked into my closet and said to myself, enough is enough!

My bags, not just the ones under my eyes, were floppy and dingy and the clothes on my shelves looked like the back of my elbows. Wrinkled and in rough shape.

I figured out that the solution was to inject fillers, but not the ones you get at a spa or doctor’s office.

Step one: Injecting myself with determination and energy to get the job done.

No more saying one day, when I have time, or have nothing else to do, because we all know how one day often turns into no day, no way, no how.

We need to decide that one day is today and that is just what I did in just a few hours to make my closet look young and fresh again.

You can too when you follow these easy to do tips.

Inject Fillers Into Your Floppy Handbags

Step two: Dumped out all my handbags onto my bed, and yes I do have quite a few of them, so I can see which needed more plumping up.

Most of them are loosely structured and need stuffing to stop flopping around on my closet’s shelves.

The solution is to inject fillers into the bags by stuffing them with bubble wrap, paper, or even the t-shirts you’re no longer wearing.

Just like your hair, they need some body to look good.

Once filled and stuffed, the bags will stand up straight and keep their original shape.

Gee, I wish it was that easy for our shapes.

Tip: I put them back by color, and used a clear magazine holder for the little pouches, extra straps, etc. Think of it as Spanx for holding in all your loose pieces.

FYI most of my handbags are from MZ Wallace. I’m quite a fan of their bags.

All of my leggings are by Lysse. I’m a devoted fan of their bottoms too.

Nope, I’m a BIG fan.

Then I tackled the clothes and shawls/ponchos I have folded on my shelves, or you may have them in drawers.

I folded each one neatly, so that not only can I clearly see what each piece is, but also to make it easier to decide which one to wear or pack when traveling.

To me, they look so much prettier now too, and yes I’ll keep them this way.

I do have lots of leggings and jeans which I actually wear, so I organized them by color and made one pile for those in a larger size because let’s face it…we all have those days, or weeks, or months…you get what I mean.

P.S. Not sure you noticed, but nothing from above was about which clothes I had to keep or toss.

Why do you ask?

Well, that’s because I stopped having an unhealthy relationship with my clothes, many, many years ago. Knowing when and how to say bye-bye to the clothes that are doing you wrong is life-changing and you’ll have less mess in your closet too.
