It is truly more important to be healthy and whole than to try to match some unhealthy worldly standard. My father used to say, “I’m pretty good for the shape I’m in.” That’s a good attitude. I remind us to appreciate our body and all it does for us. It’s the vehicle that gets us where we want to go-even if the pace is slow at times. Knowing your body type directs you to flattering clothing styles and coordination. To learn more, get yourself to my Style for Life Retreat. Be careful in all you do and make mindful dressing part of your everyday life.

Before you can hope to build serious momentum in your business, become the master of the product you are selling. Remember the book, The Little Engine That Could? The poor little train full of dolls, toys, and good things for the boys and girls on the other side of mountain is stranded. The big engines refuse to help. The “Little Engine That Could”, who had never even been over the mountain, comes to the rescue. With a positive “I think I can” mantra and some hard work, that little engine eventually gains the momentum to pull the stranded train up and over the mountain, bringing good things to the kids on the other side.
Mastering the image consulting industry is a huge challenge! It requires positive thinking, hard work, and a knowledge of psychological, social, physical and artistic aspects of image. That’s a big load to carry my little engines! Picture your clients, the wonderful people on the other side of mountain waiting for you to deliver them life transforming treasures. Oh how they want those treasures! To gain enough momentum to actually get to them, you need to master the material. Otherwise, you are not only disappointing your clients, but yourself and your own reputation…and potentially marring the image consulting profession in general. So if you really want to know your business, you best do your homework. AICI, Association of Image Consultants International, offers a list of reference materials as suggested reading for the certification exam. There are a number of references listed there. If you only read one book, read the book that will help you pass the exam, Wardrobe Strategies for Women by Judith Rasband. This book is not only listed 4 times by AICI, but the author also contributed to the AICI Key Terms of the image industry which are on the AICI exam. Wardrobe Strategies is the one comprehensive book that includes everything you need to know to pass the exam. Master this one book and you will gain the momentum to have a fabulous and fulfilling career as an image consultant. Or you may choose to learn directly from the author herself at the Conselle Institute of Image Consulting and be able to say “I knew I could!”
Find the list of Recommended References for the AICI exam under Appendix A here: http://c.ymcdn.com/sites/www.aici.org/resource/resmgr/AICI_Candidate_Handbook.pdf

Most people think that they should just naturally know how to dress well. Yet there are so many who would admit that they don’t. There’s no shame in this. Some people are naturally better at math and science, some better at the arts. If these skills don’t come naturally, does that mean we just give up and never learn math, science, art, etc.? Obviously not, or there would be hundreds of teachers standing in the unemployment line. Skills that don’t come naturally to some can be learned with the right teaching conditions.
Self presentation skills are no different. Unfortunately, this is subject that many people didn’t learn as children or teens. They need for an educated instructor to teach them how to look great in any and every situation as adults. Could that instructor be you? Does dressing well come easily to you? How about dressing other people well? Let’s go back to grade school again. Just because you’re a math wiz it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a fabulous math teacher. There must be a proper foundation, framework, content and methods to teach any subject. Lots of people teach what they “know intuitively” when it comes to image consulting, which may be confusing or may not apply to their clients unless they have learned relevant teaching methods.
Where do you find these methods? You could study blog posts that contradict each other with what’s hot today and not tomorrow. OR you could look into the longest established institute of image management in the country, with over 30 years experience in educating image consulting professionals.

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.

Taupe is a very hard color to wear. Not sure what color taupe is? Well if you can’t decide if the color is gray or brown, it’s probably taupe, a soft grayed brown. It’s a common personal body color, a muted wardrobe neutral, and tricky to work with. But for clothes to harmonize with light, medium, or dark taupe-colored hair, the degree of cool grayness in the taupe clothes must be the same as in the hair or they will fight or clash with one another. Taupe colored clothes and hair must repeat or match perfectly. This concept also applies to eye and skin coloration. Beyond direct repetition of a personal body color, you can wear warmer or cooler versions of nearly all other hues.
For personal color evaluation, Conselle works with a set of 300 personal colors in fabric tags for matching your clients’ personal body colors. To produce a full color fan, Conselle has a 1300 fabric tag set available. Call 801-224-1207 or email email@example.com for more information.
