11 Wardrobe Basics You Won’t Want to Live Without

Recently a potential client told me that even though she said she had a closet full of new clothes, she felt like she didn’t have a thing to wear. She realized she hadn’t shopped with a plan. Knowing she wants start over, I suggested she probably needs some good basics, so I shared my post 11 Wardrobe Basics to Upgrade Your Personal Style with her. I was surprised to see I’d written it in 2015 and decided to update it. But you know what? The basics haven’t really changed! Nevertheless, I’ll sharpen and shorten the concepts for you to digest quicker. [..] read more

How to Dress for 4 Seasons in One Day

I saw the meme below and got inspired to revisit a post from 2010 titled Dressing for Four Seasons in One Day. I grew up in St. Louis where it was fall from September through November.

How To Wear Yellow If You Think You “Can’t” Wear Yellow

Recently when I asked readers about their most burning style challenge, here’s what one fab lady had to say, “I struggle with finding appropriate clothes for work. I have lots of clothes and not very many I like or wear. I feel like I should look professional since I am advising people on their finances but my preference is for casual clothes.

How to Wear High Waisted Pants & Skirts if You’re Short Waisted

If you’re short waisted (other wise known as a short torso) and you’ve been shopping for jeans, skirts, or pants lately, perhaps you’ve gone home in tears! You scoured the racks to find these bottoms in your size that you like…only to try them on and find out they were high waisted…and you couldn’t wait to tear said styles off!!! I KNOW! It’s happened to ME! Unfortunately, I have some bad news. It doesn’t look like these high waisted styles are going away any time soon.
