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.

The Truth About Ordering Clothes In A Box

clothes in a box

No way can I count how many times I’ve been asked if I know about the companies that will ship you a variety of clothes in a box for you to try on.

Yes, way I know all about them and have seen quite a few sad expressions on my first time client’s faces when I ask about some of the unworn and/or unloved pieces in her closet?

So why the long faces?

Well, often it is because she imagined that by telling the online personal stylist whatever info they requested, that she would actually be getting pieces perfect for her.

Reality check time.

These services are NOT my competition, and no I don’t want to offer the clothes in a box service. I won’t change my business model from serving to selling as I’m motivated by seeing a woman looking and feeling confident, and not by making money.

I don’t believe in telling women to wear Spanx to fit into their clothes, so why should I squeeze myself to fit into someones else’s business mold? I hate constrictions of all kinds!!
 If I don’t let my clients be pushed and squeezed into the wrong clothes for their shape and lives, why should I squish myself into what doesn’t fit my own business and personality?



These clothes in a box companies mission are to make money by selling you more and more, not to help you have a wardrobe that can be mixed and matched.

More stuff doesn’t mean you have more to wear.
       But you probably already knew that.

You can make these online clothes in a box services work better for you, if you actually know what colors, patterns, styles, labels, and fabrics are the most flattering for you. And please request items that will give you the ability to make many more outfits vs just the one outfit they send you.

The best wardrobe is one that you can do lots of mixing and matching with, instead of clothes that don’t go with anything you already own.

It might be fun to try a service that sends you clothes in a box all wrapped up with a pretty ribbon, but based on the regrets I’ve seen on women’s faces or hanging in their closets, it doesn’t always work out and I don’t want you to think something is wrong with you or your body if the clothes don’t look that great on you.  

Remember, it’s not you. They simply were the wrong clothes for you.

“Want to feel “cuddling with baby goats” happy when you open your closet?

Then let me show you how to let go of the clothes you’ve been holding onto for all the wrong reasons and you’ll see that breaking up won’t be so hard, or messy, to do for FREE!!!

Are You A Fashion Coward Shopper?

Don’t let this happen to you!!! 

This week it’s all about having a laugh.

Thank you Saturday Night Live, or for us cool kids SNL, for making a hilarious video about how some women play it safe when shopping for clothes.

I tell all who’ll listen to me, that your immediate reaction is the one that counts, and if you agree you’ll love what happens in this video within 30 seconds of trying to talk yourself into buying something.

Maybe Next Time You’ll Volunteer Too

I thought you’d enjoy seeing how I gave this wonderful and funny audience volunteer some of my what colors to wear tips when I presented to NAPO, The National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals.
She was so much fun to have up on the stage with me, but I was taken aback when she told me what she was once told by a color consultant a few years earlier.

 

Hmmm, does my below Virtual Wardrobe Styling client look familiar?

“I was tired of looking in my closet and seeing clothes that I had spent money on but would never wear. I hate to think about how much money I have wasted buying clothes only to donate them never worn.
In the past, I thought that if I buy more expensive, but fewer clothes, I would have more I’d like to wear. But really, regardless of spending $5 or $100 on something, it still looked lousy on me so I didn’t wear it. Cheap versus expensive was not the issue; it was not knowing what worked for me.
Hiring Scarlett, as my personal Image Curator, I love saying that, gave me the guidance to know what to wear, buy, where to find it, and she is amazing at finding deals on quality items!
I am continuing to learn as I try more things and see ‘wow, I really see what she means, this style does NOT work on me!’
The truth is, that I feel better when I am wearing my ‘Scarlett’ outfits.”

Here’s An Easy Way To Make Your Neck Look longer

Wish you had Audrey Hepburn’s enviable long neck?

I do but I don’t.

But I do know how to not make my neck look shorter, therefore longer.

Do wear shorter earrings than long ones.

Don’t wear earrings longer than approximately your upper lip.

If you wear longer earrings, you’re going to make your neck look shorter and emphasize an already short neck.

Notice how the woman being used to model these earrings has a very, very long neck. Then imagine these earrings on a more average length neck…not so great, right?
