Shaving Tips for Smooth Summer Legs!

I definitely don’t profess to be a beauty tips guru, and for the most part, I’m fairly pretty low maintenance on the beauty front. BUT I recently found a leg shaving routine that has been life changing!! Have you heard of Tree Hut? I recently found out about them from my adorable blogger friend Caitlin, and tried their shaving products. Seriously life changing! (Don’t worry, Elements of Image isn’t turning into a beauty blog, lol!) I’ve been shaving my legs since I was 6! (Not really, but I did try shaving at that age…many band aids!) So maybe not age [..] read more

How to Dress When You’re in Between Sizes

Does this scenario sound familiar? You’re in the fitting room trying on an item in your typical size, and it’s too small.  Then you try the next size up, and it’s too big?

How to Edit Your Closet

Recently when I asked what your most burning question around your wardrobe is, the most common answer I received revolved around how to edit your closet. Editing closets, including my own has become second nature to me, but before I actually started my image consulting career and training, it never occurred to me to go through my closet. I had a lot of clothes, many things I loved, but getting dressed was hard! And I didn’t mix and match as much as I could have if my closet were well edited and my wardrobe made sense. So today we go [..] read more

How to Pack for a 5 Day Business Trip

Recently my client, Julia, asked me to help her pack for a 5-day business trip, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity for a blog post about an unusual packing situation. Because Julia works from home and has a very casual lifestyle, she doesn’t get many opportunities to wear her beautiful clothes. So even though she works in the uber-casual IT industry, Julia takes advantage of her business trip as an excuse to “pack heavy.” In other words, she’s not all about packing light. She’s not interested in mix and match! On the other hand, Julia is a bit [..] read more
