Are you able to Strike A Power Pose?

Are You Able To Strike A Power Pose?

Strike A Power Pose

Have you heard about the power of a power pose?

In addition to what a woman says, her non-verbal body language, often speaks louder than her words and it also changes how we you see yourself.

What we say to ourself matters, and way too often we don’t talk nicely  to ourselves.

So, STOP it!

Time to, as Madonna once sang: Strike A Pose…Strike A Power Pose.

When you put your hands on your hips, in the now named wonder Woman Pose, you send messages to your brain and to other that you have confidence, power and strength.

You’ll get respect and self confidence, and the proof about how body language affects how others see us, can be seen in the TedTalk: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are by social psychologist Amy Cuddy in her 2012. She shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

 

Her Ted Talk is getting close to 36 million views!!!

But, Horrors, Power Posing Can’t Work For Some Women, If:

  • Clothes don’t fit well, as her hands will be busy pulling and tugging at herself.
  • Her shoes hurt…OUCH.
  • She hates how she looks in her clothes.
  • Keeps wearing the same outfit, over, and over, and over, and get the picture?
  • Lacks the skills to take steps to increase self-confidence.

How you hold and pose your body, transforms the message you are sending to the room and to your inner confidence.

 

In her talk, Amy Cuddy states that “Tiny Tweaks Can Make Big Changes”.

I would like to tweak her statement and ask:

What’s stopping you from tweaking your wardrobe?

 

I’m really, really good at tweaking, not to be confused with twerking, which I cannot and will not do.

Virtually or personally, I’m here to help you to stylishly strike a power pose and represent your business and career the way you should be seen and heard.

So go ahead, no-one is looking: go Strike A Power Pose.

Strike A Power Pose

Before I worked with Scarlett I had a closet full of clothes and no idea how to put them together. After just a few hours of working with me in my home, my closet was organized, all the clothes that didn’t work were gone and I had lots of outfits pulled together, that make me feel great when I walk out the door. She went though my bags, my jewelry and without me buying one new thing I feel, based on all the compliments I get, like a million bucks. Belinda Wasser

Hanger Bumps

How To Get Rid Of Hanger Bumps

Don’t you hate how some clothes look like they have bumps in them and stick up and out on your shoulders?

Follow these tips to rid yourself of hanger bumps.

Hanger Bumps

The temps will start to dip soon and you will find some of your clothes a bit lumpy on the shoulders if they were not hung properly.

Now is the perfect time to get your tops, jackets and sweaters that you have on hangers and re-hang using one or both of the following tips.

Sweaters should either be folded or hung as in this ingenious method I found for you on a cool site called SnapGuide.com. So clever and smart.

Hanger BumpsThis shoulder shaper from Ikea, will fit over the slim hangers I recommend in my closet organizing guide, despite Ikea saying they are for their hangers. Professional organizer Betsy Krobot found them for my client, who I found had some clothes that badly needed  padded hangers.

These shoulder shapers will also be great for your coats and jackets, which sadly we will all be wearing soon…too soon and hopefully without hanger bumps

Tired Of Sleeveless Clothes?

More Ways To Cover Up Your Upper Arms

Check out these arm cover ups in the online newsletter, which I am a contributor to, The Three Tomatoes. They use fabulous Helen Mirren as a perfect example of how a woman maintains a high level of class and glamour, yet always has her upper arms covered.

I even made a video a couple of years ago on the subject of our, less than pageant ready, upper arms.

More Ways To Cover Up Your Upper Arms

It’s not you – it’s your clothes…because you never learned the specifics that will allow you to transform what you choose to wear and  buy.

Stress no more, because now you can get what to wear advice that you can easily follow, while laughing as you learn in my recently published book, Stop Stressing About Dressing. Get your copy here on Amazon.

I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read on how to look and feel great every day. I’m a protege of Scarlett’s and find her tips and explanations invaluable in this slim volume. “That’s why I should wear more ruffles!” is one small reminder of why particular textures, colors and necklines flatter some and not others. Scarlett is a genius in this arena and generously shares her fashion secrets with us mere mortals. I highly recommend Stop Stressing About Dressing to all women, particularly those of us over 50.

Are You Mustard Or Ketchup?

what to wear advice for women

There they go again, telling us what colors we must wear to look ‘in style’ for the next season.

The color Guru Pantone has named Oak Bluff as one of the must wear colors for fall.what to wear advice for women

Looks like mustard to me, and I must add that it is an extremely difficult color to wear near the face for most women, especially brunettes.

So if you must add mustard, oh I mean Oak Bluff to your wardrobe, please do so from the waist down. I just can’t give what to wear advice for women, without also giving what not to wear suggestions.

Me, and I’m not bluffing, will be sticking with ketchup…oops, I mean red. Why? Well, red is a color that works for me, and won’t make me look like a condiment.

what to wear advice for women“For eight years, I worked as a freelancer, and dressed either for at-home comfort or for events. Now I was embarking on a corporate job that required a new wardrobe. Or so I thought. Scarlett put together my existing separates into creative, stylish looks; she helped me donate the pieces and suits that were a là mode when I last worked in an office, and identified colors, looks and pieces to fit my figure and fill in the gaps.” Jennifer M. Brown, V-P and Publisher, Knopf Books for Young Readers
