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.



Start simple.  Go to a paint store.  Look at the wide range of color chips and identify colors that make your heart sing or make you want to get moving.  Pull your favorite paint chips for future reference and pick just one to work with now.  With this color in mind, shop for a top in that color and wear it with clothes you already own.  Shop for an accessory in that this color. Give yourself a chance to make friends with a new color.  When you feel more adventurous, pair this color with one of your personal body colors–your hair, eyes, skin, or blush color–and shop for a patterned piece of clothing containing both colors, making you part of the color scheme with your clothes.


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.

  • Take charge of the way you see yourself and others see you
  • Discover, define, and develop your own personal style
  • Zero in on strategies for dressing slim and a fabulous fit
  • Improve your self-presentation
  • Enhance self-image
  • Increase self-confidence
  • Never be a fashion victim again!

Join us at the legendary and luxurious Little America hotel in Salt Lake City, November 17-22, 2014, and discover a New You!  GET MORE INFORMATION HERE or call Kathy at 801-224-1207.

Little did young Levi Strauss know when he came west during the California gold rush, that he would be responsible for creating one of the longest-lasting and most distinctive American contributions to the world of fashion.  He brought with him a wagonload of denim fabric to be made into tents for the miners, but he met with little success at tent making.  A very clever fellow, he then decided to make pants for the miners out of his very sturdy cotton material.  Copper rivets were added at points of stress to strengthen the pockets and enable miners to carry ore samples.  The so-called “Levis” were an immediate success and caught on elsewhere because of their durability and suitability to the rugged lifestyle of the Western United States.

A new name was needed to identify the pant style when made by manufacturers other than the Levi Strauss Co.  And so they became known as “jeans,” a logical adaptation for the name of the cloth from which they are made.  According to Webster, “Jeans” is a durable cotton cloth in a twill weave, used for work clothes.  The fabric was first made in Genoa (Genes), Italy and used for trousers or overalls in solid colors and stripes.  It was similar to Levi’s denim, a serge or twill seave cloth, made in Nimes, France – hence, deNimes, or denim.

Today, jeans may be seen not only in the mines, but in the backyard, in the classroom, the shopping malls, in restaurants and in theaters.  They are worn by people all over the world.  And last time I checked, most of those people are not wearing them to work hard labor.  No, we’re not panning for gold in the river, so why do we want to look like we are?   Jeans were great for their original purpose, but now that we have cleaner living conditions, it may be time to reconsider the jeans uniform that we all wear.  So many of us would benefit from more variety in our wardrobes. In reality, jeans fit few bodies, get stuck in the crotch, and bag in the bottom.  Our closets are full of enough unwearable jeans that most of us could make our own tent.  Maybe it’s time to consider the fashion statement we’re really making.  Read our June Newsletter for a young woman’s take on jeans in the closet.

Just because a makeover gets good media exposure doesn’t mean the results and information are equally good.  During a recent TV makeover, the “expert” declared, “Get rid of the all taupe outfit.  It’s BO-RING!”

That pronouncement is extreme and doesn’t help anyone.

The expert’s actual makeover outfit, in an attempt to avoid boring was equally extreme.  The taupe-colored shirt was paired with a big, bold orange colored white and navy-blue print shirt that visually clashed with the mood of the skirt.  The overall look for the mediocre makeover was just cheap.

So let’s start over.  An all taupe outfit can be absolutely gorgeous – elegant if put together with an eye to clothing as an art form.  First of all, the taupe color needs to repeat the ash blonde or light ash brown hair color.  The monochromatic ‘repetition’ will make the wearer part of a harmonious color scheme with the clothes.  Next, the taupe needs to be presented in a variety of textures.  Interesting textures transform boring to beautiful!  Picture a silky taupe shirt with taupe colored wool or linen slacks, depending on the climate, topped with a great cable knit or rib knit sweater and a mix of metallic brass or taupe ceramic jewelry.

Taupe Monochromatic Set

Now that’s an “Ah Ha” outfit!  Taupe can be beautiful.  It’s not only what you wear, it’s how you wear it!

A New Year, A New You! Photo c/o dailymakeover.com

It is a new year, and a new you may be waiting just around the corner.  Perhaps 2010 is the year to upgrade your appearance.  Maybe you’d like a new way of wearing your hair, an improved way of applying a little makeup, or a plan for a winning wardrobe. 

Achieving an improvement in personal appearance is one of the fastest, most effective ways I know to boost self-esteem.  When you like yourself, it’s a lot easier to pick yourself up when the going gets rough and do whatever has to be done in your day.

Break overwhelmingly large projects into smaller and more manageable steps to be completed one by one.  With each small goal achieved, you’ll feel the joy of victory. 

One such victory was won by a woman whose time and budget were devoted to her family.  She had dreamed of a total make-over for herself, but there never seemed enough time or funds to work on such an enormous project. 

Look at the difference eyebrows can make! Photo c/o oprah.com

Look forward to the marvelous sense of accomplishment that awaits you.  Think of how great you’ll feel when you look in the mirror and see a revitalized you!

Commitment to the task is vital.  Put it on your calendar so it becomes a real part of your life.  Many people are spurred to action when they’ve got a target day to aim for.  “Today I am determined to improve my appearance,” is the promise one busy bread-winner makes to herself. 

So I ask you, what one small improvement in your looks have you wanted to make for a long time?  The new year holds the promise for a more attractive appearance for those who have decided that the time is now.  Have a Happy Near Year!

Skin Care Tips for Healthy and Radiant Skin. Photo c/o discovery.com

With January upon us, it’s time to take stock of your image.  We will explore different elements of your image including your skin care, hair care, body image, clothing and more.

Today we’ll evaluate several skin care tips for healthy and radiant skin in 2010.

  • Skin Care Tip #1: Ladies, don’t go to bed for the night with makeup on as it will clog your pores and can cause skin irritation and breakouts.  Do use makeup remover, then proceed with your face cleansing routine to remove the cosmetic residue.
  • Skin Care Tip #2: Male or female, when washing your face, rinse several times, then lather the palms of your hands with mild soap.  Use your lathered palms to wash your face, then rinse with warm water.
  • Skin Care Tip #3: Do apply a light coating of moisturizer to replace natural surface oils removed during cleaning and to help retain natural body moisture.
  • Skin Care Tip #4: After you climb out of the shower, dry off partially, then apply moisturizer to your body while it’s still somewhat moist.  This will help your skin to retain its moisture throughout the day.
  • Skin Care Tip #5: If you live in a dry climate, do use a humidifier in your home.  Your skin needs this additional moisture and care, especially during the winter when your skin is exposed to subzero temperatures and blasting heat inside.

Stay tuned for hair care tomorrow!
