How to Love and Highlight Your Assets

Self-Care is such a buzz phrase these days. I’ll agree…it’s so important to take care of yourself and perhaps even more important love yourself just as much as others love you! (I thought Valentine’s Day was a perfect excuse to talk about love.) Recently I’ve heard so many women say, “It’s all about camouflage!” As a Denver image and wardrobe consultant and personal stylist, I couldn’t disagree more!

And just to be even more transparent, I shopped a lot when I was single. (I guess I was hoping to meet prince charming at the mall, lol!) I’d walk into a store, browse [..] read more

Plan a Wardrobe for your Lifestyle

As a wardrobe consultant, I have a few questions for you…When you’re getting ready to go somewhere, do you look in your closet in a panic wondering what in the world to wear? Does this panic often turn to apathy, telling yourself it just doesn’t matter? (You know it matters when you get to your destination and you’re just not happy with your outfit.) Or lastly, do you end up panic shopping, hitting the stores quickly buying something you’re not really sure about or don’t really love…just to go home with something? It doesn’t have to be like this!

Look 2 the Color Wheel

If you want to add more color to your wardrobe, but just one pop of color isn’t enough for you, let’s talk about opposites attracting. I’m talking about opposite colors, or complementary colors, on the color wheel. Putting opposite colors together is one of the most basic, yet fun ways of producing a color scheme to your outfit. For the sake of ease today, we’ll concentrate on tops. So you don’t feel like Rainbow Bright all of a sudden, ground any of your outfits with a neutral skirt or pant. I know what you’re thinking as you’re looking at this [..] read more
