People have asked me, “How do you dare to tell other people what to wear?” An easy answer, I dare because I care. And it’s OK for you to care too. I know first-hand the positive difference discovering your personal style in dress can make in your everyday life. As I tell my clients, the clothing you wear affects the way you think, the way you feel, the way you act, and then the way others react or respond to you. Nothing vain or superficial about that!
With the start of a new school year and the change in seasons coming up, it’s a fine time to take time to care for yourself. You’ve likely been giving a lot of time and attention to others all summer, perhaps even so much of yourself there’s hardly anything left for you. It’s time to get in touch with yourself and your spirit, to renew how you think of yourself–your values, personality, and goals for the next few months. Then give some thought to how you might reflect those aspects of yourself through your clothes and accessories.
Making little changes in what you wear can add up to a big transformation in how you see yourself and how others see and respond to you. Yes, you can do this yourself, or you could join us for our 5 day Style For Life Retreat and speed up the process.

When contemplating a dress or skirt purchase, consider the width of the skirt in relation to its length. Attractiveness is a matter of achieving good balance and proportions. Generally straight skirts may be shorter to the knee and flared or fuller skirts may be longer from the knee. Flared skirts are generally flattering to most women. Short full or bouffant skirts worn by adult women “of a certain age,” tend to look childish, silly, and out of proportion, being too wide for their shorter length. The dress to the left begins to look more like a ballet tutu.
For a slimmer look, straight skirts in larger sizes can be tapered slightly, about a half to one inch on each side from waist to hem. Tightly gathered, straight-hanging dirndl skirts are most attractive hemmed below the calf to balance the width.
Tuesday, January 14, 2014, the Expressive Image Therapy Association was organized, creating the foundation for a new field of study, counseling, and treatment of many mental health disorders.
Acting as the association’s first president is Judith Rasband, Kathryn Wolters as vice president, and Dani Slaugh as secretary. Charter members include Sarita Singh, Dawn Nieto, Rebecca S. Boles, Leslie Anne Jeanfreaw, Kathleen M. Doctor, Cristina C. Johnson, and Ann Johnson.
What is Expressive Image Therapy?
Expressive image therapy is the use of the elements of image—dress, grooming, and body language—to facilitate non-image treatment goals. It is a creative collaboration between the client and the therapist. In essence, it is a clinical collaboration of art and science. The role of image therapy within a multi-disciplinary treatment program is to complement and enhance the clinical work being done in individual, group, and family therapy; the role of the image therapist is to have a comprehensive understanding of individual treatment goals and progress in order to support this within the context of individual or group image therapy sessions.
Expressive image therapy is a mental health profession in which clients, guided by the image therapist, use clothing and accessories, grooming, and body language to:
A major goal in image therapy is to improve or restore a client’s ability to function effectively and his or her sense of personal well-being. Image therapy requires knowledge of visual design in dress and grooming including the reactive process. It requires knowledge of human development, physiology and anatomy, psychological and sociological aspects of image, as well as psychological counseling theories and techniques.
Conselle is proud to be a supporter of this innovative approach to expressive therapy! For those who want to know more about this new professional field call 801-224-1207 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Michael J. Fox rocked the denim look in Back to the Future. Not only is Fox back on the screen but so is the denim look he made so popular in the film. And just in time too. Is anyone else tired of looking at motley, ripped up jeans fresh from a knife fight or vampire brawl?
Take it from the Fox, and try this alternative to the vampire slayer trend. Look for decorative stitching at the knee, reminiscent of jodhpurs (pronounced \ˈjäd-(ˌ)pər\), riding pants, or moto jeans. Keep in mind that the eye is drawn to contrast. While this style is generally fitted, the stitching at the knee draws attention to the narrow part of the legs. If you find that the hip area pops or looks unbalanced, try wearing a tunic that flows smoothly over the hips.
A word of caution. This trend is youthful, fun, and playful. Everything Michael J. Fox represented in his classic film. Before you wear these jeans out in public, make sure the relaxed style fits the occasion.
