The end of every Summer, I stand in front of my wardrobe with one mission in mind – transition! It’s time to bid a fond farewell to my sundresses and shift my closet to Fall. I am never ready for this pivotal seasonal shift. It is much easier to transition from Spring to Summer. But Summer to Fall – that is a different story!

But alas, August turns to September and by Labor Day out come the sweaters and boots. [Read more…] about Timeless Tips to Transition Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall
I am proud to share this wonderful, heart-felt testimonial I just received from Debbi:
Thank you so much I feel like a new Woman, a beautiful Woman!! Over the last few years a lot has gone on in my life and as a result I have gained some weight. I have not felt comfortable in the clothes I have been getting for myself. With your guidance and support doing the hardest thing for me – clothes shopping, I know what to look for now and it feels so Amazing!! You have helped me change my life and words cannot express how grateful I am for you!!
Can you relate to Debbi? I know I can. I think at some point in our lives, we all can. My message: embrace who you are today! Don’t hold on to who you were. Holding on to the jeans that fit 10 lbs. ago or buying sizes that constricts your breathing or exposes way too much skin will only enhance those very areas you are least proud of. Conversely, wearing overly bulky clothes will only make you appear bigger. [Read more…] about Don’t Let Size ‘Weight’ You Down

“The only rule is don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in.” Paris Hilton
I love the concept of this statement. Now, for a woman 30+, this does not mean wear frilly cocktail dresses to the supermarket. It means, dress each day as if you were going to a special luncheon or event. Put aside the comfy sweats and yoga pants and slip on those fabulous jeans, sweater and stylish shoes. Don’t forget to accessorize! [Read more…] about Accessories! Five Magical Ideas to Dress Up or Down Your Look
For many, our closet is a representation of our history, containing dresses, pants or even shoes that hold emotional memories. Often those memories evoke a sense of nostalgia; reminiscing over that purple dress that was worn to a class reunion or those chunky heeled black shoes that looked so “Goth” at The CURE concert.
Then there are those items that had to be purchased because they were “on sale!” Who can resist a bargain? All those bargains add up to a stocked wardrobe containing ill-fitting items or better yet, clothing with the tags still on them! Can you relate?

Wisdom from a “Beauty”ful Grandma!
Grandma Belle was a resilient and memorable woman. At 51 her husband of just over 30 years passed away. The mother of 6, with ages ranging from 27 down to 5, had to learn very quickly how to muster up the courage to move on to the next phase of her life: “single-motherhood.”
Grandma was no stranger to sales. Before selling make-up, she sold Encyclopedias. She also hailed as a local journalist and Teacher at her Temple religious school. Whether it was educating her clients on the benefits of the encyclopedia collection, educating her students or parting wisdom in her articles, the essence of education was always an inspiration to Grandma Belle.
