Your Style Challenges Tackled! Day 6: What to Wear When You’re Not Your Ideal Weight

Shopping Tips


Our second last challenge comes from a lovely lady who struggles with what to wear when you’re not your ideal weight, other than tights (or leggings). The answer to this, or the way to tackle this challenge, is probably not what you think it might be. It’s this – dress for the body you have, not the one you had, and not the one you’re going to have. Let me explain…   Challenge 6: What to Wear When You’re Not Your Ideal Weight   As a Stylist, I work with a number of women who aren’t their ideal weight.

Your Style Challenges Tackled! Day 1: Shortening a Shopping Trip

Shopping Tips


In case you missed it (or if you’re not on Instagram), last week I sent out a question in my Stories asking for everyone’s biggest Style Challenge.   So I’ve taken the first seven responses, and for the next seven days I’ll be tackling one challenge daily (in chronological order) (cuz it only seems fair).   Challenge 1: Shortening a Shopping Trip   Ok I get it.

Wardrobe


I had great plans for my I’m-back-but-I-haven’t-REALLY-been-gone post, but a potential client asked me a question that I often get, so I thought I’d share my answer, with the hope that it might help you as well, and now this is the longest run-on sentence I’ve ever written.   THE QUESTION How Much Money Should I Set Aside for a New Wardrobe?   THE ANSWER It Depends (keep reading)   When you’re interested in revamping your closet or creating a whole new wardrobe, there are certain factors that determine how much money you should set aside (or save) to do so.   1.
