Tips for Olympic Style Shopping

With the Olympics going strong, I’ve been watching a lot of sports lately and got to thinking… I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m not what you’d call athletic. I’ve certainly never been accepted onto any team. Although I’m a pretty fearless skier, the U.S. Olympic Committee definitely isn’t calling. On the other hand, I know that if shopping were ever a sanctioned Olympic sport, I’d be the captain of the team. Well, the U.S. team anyway. And we’d have the most stylish uniforms ever, lol! Now I know what you’re thinking, “This woman must be crazy! Shopping isn’t [..] read more

5 Ways to Make Finding Pants a Breeze

“I love to shop for pants!”…said NO ONE ever! Seriously, I ask my clients what their hardest item to shop for, and I haven’t actually counted, but I’d guess over 80% answer “pants.” And even if it’s your second or third hardest on your shopping list, you probaby still don’t love shopping for pants.

A few weeks ago, I told you all about how I have to say goodbye to an old friend, my white linen safari jacket I purchased in Paris.

How to choose a dress for a wedding that you’ll actually wear again

Sure, everyone thinks of June as “wedding month,” but as a Denver wardrobe consultant, I’ve been talking to scores of women lately who have weddings to attend in August and September. And sure we all have (or should have) some good basic dresses in our closets that will suffice for a wedding. But it’s hard to resist a new frock, something special for your friend or loved one’s special day. On the other hand, I know it can be a mental or pocketbook struggle to justify a new dress when there are no other weddings or dressy events on your [..] read more
