Wardrobe and Image Makeover You know what makes me the happiest? When I show a woman how to Shop in Her Closet © and dress for the body she is in today. She gazes at her reflection in the mirror with the widest smile and says, “I never thought that I would look good in this.” Yes, that makes me want to do a happy dance. Here are just some of the benefits of working with me, your San Diego Wardrobe and Image Consultant: • Save money – by creating new outfits from your current wardrobe and how to accessorize them. • Enhance your body type – by learning which styles, cuts, patterns, textures and colors are right styles for the body you are in today. • Elevate your self confidence – in the way that you present yourself in personal and professional environments. Let’s look at a few examples of how some of my clients used to limit their views of themselves and their wardrobe possibilities… Shirley’s story: We were organizing clothing to determine which ones she might keep and which she would let go of. Shirley thought that the leather pants that she wore when she was first married were no longer “appropriate” for her to wear. After all, she was now the mother of two children and her body was changed. As a Wardrobe and Image Consultant it is my responsibility to allow the client to see possibilities that enable her to make the decision comfortably. I asked Shirley to try on the pants…they fit perfectly and I think that she was surprised.

Wardrobe Consulting Tips | How To Create Outfits As a Wardrobe and Image Consultant I share tips for how to expand your wardrobe by creating “new” outfits from the same basic pieces. Wardrobe Consulting Tip #1: Just because you bought a suit doesn’t mean that you always have to wear the top and bottom together. You can wear them as separates and mix them with other pieces. By doing this you can make a business or dressy outfit more casual and therefore, get more wear out of it. Wardrobe Consulting Tip #2: Wear a jean jacket with a dress or skirt to transform the entire outfit and give it a more casual look. Add a suit jacket or silk blouse to a dress jean and you are date-ready! Be creative and mix fabrics, textures, and patterns. Wardrobe Consulting Tip #3: Mix neutrals! That’s right, go beyond black and white. For example, these combinations look fabulous: black with brown, navy with grey, grey with black. Some of these ideas may be radical for you but trust me, you will love the results simply by changing pieces and wearing different accessories. Let’s look at how I did this with a lovely red dress, for example. In a previous post I accessorized the same dress for an evening event. This time I want to show you how you can “casual-ize” it and wear it in a completely different way! Here’s my Wardrobe Consultant magic at work… Step 1: Your basic gorgeous dress. Step 2: Go casual with a black leather jacket. Step 3: Add a pair of great knee high boots. Step 4: Accessorize with an edgier look. Step 5: A tote bag finishes this evening to day look.
