What you select out of your closet every day determines how people perceive you.  You make lots of first impressions, whether you know it or not.  Every person you pass on the street, in a store, at work, in a restaurant, at a coffee shop – they are all noticing what you are wearing and based on this, make an impression of you.  How you are perceived in that first impression is up to you.  Are your clothes stained? Torn? Outdated? Ill-fitting?  Sleeves too long?  Are you swimming in that shirt because you have broad shoulders? Are you wearing the correct undergarments?  Are your clothes properly tailored?  Shoes polished and worn heels repaired/replaced?

We see lots of people every day and whether we realize it or not, we have an opinion about that person, even if we never utter a word!  How do you want to be perceived?  What do your clothes say about you?  How you dress has a definite effect on how people perceive you and how you feel about yourself.  If you are dressed for the day and know that you look good, you exude confidence, which shows in your demeanor, posture and attitude.

It’s Fall, so it’s time to go through your closet and sort it out in 4 piles: Keep, Consign, Donate & Throw Away.  People only wear about 20% of the clothes in their closet, so why keep it?  Get rid of clothes that do not fit you NOW!  Dress for today, not for the weight you are going to gain or lose in the next year!  You need to feel confident about yourself, no matter your size or shape and the way to do that is to dress your shape NOW.

Most clothes off the rack do not fit women properly.  We are all different shapes and sizes so to find the proper fit when buying clothes, fit the largest part of the body you are shopping for (i.e. broad shoulders), but you have a small waist and chest so a size Large fits your shoulders, but it is huge everywhere else – FIND A TAILOR!!!  Almost every dry cleaners has a tailor so find one and get those clothes tailored to your body! Whether it is getting waistlines taken in, sleeves shortened, skirts and pants hemmed, waistbands taken in, etc.  Proper fit makes the difference of looking pulled together and someone thinking you are wearing your Mom’s or Aunt’s hand me downs!

The woman below looks like she lost 25-30 lbs just by wearing properly proportioned and fitting clothes – who wouldn’t want that?????  Don’t settle for fitting right off the rack and ill fitting clothes – FIND A TAILOR!

It was a beautiful sunny and stylish morning last Saturday, at Gillette Stadium where we met celebrity stylist for the NFL, Phillip Bloch.  It was an event to showcase the latest trends in ladies NFL apparel.  Ladies NFL apparel has certainly come a long way, it’s not about wearing your husbands hoodie on game day or any day, any longer. It’s a trend called athleisure that has taken the runways by storm and the NFL is all over it! Today’s woman wants comfort and style and if your love your sports, you are going to love all of the choices available for your favorite team.

Phillip reviewed the top trends behind the fashions found at the NFL shop. Feminine skirts, leathers and mixed media jackets all look great paired with a great color block t-shirt or fitted sweatshirt. Your personal style, your brand, it’s all about incorporating your favorite pieces into outfits that you LOVE to wear. The sporty look is sleek, minimal and even luxurious. It was great to see many of the NFL women pairing the newest tees with current pieces that showed off their personal styles.

It’s time to wear tights and women everywhere are celebrating! Tights and trouser socks are style staples that are so simple to wear and allow women to expand their wardrobes for the season. It doesn’t matter what shape you are today, from petite to plus size, tights and stockings shape your legs, cover your flaws and enhance your confidence in clothing. The skirt, tights, tall boot combination is a fall favorite, works for every body shape and takes you from work to weekend.

It’s early in the season, time to purge and prepare to look and feel your best everyday. It’s my mantra, dress for every moment because every moment matters. This season stands out as one of the best confident building seasons of all. Layering and legwear help to enhance your figure by giving you the coverage you need to feel fabulous.

Begin with building the basics, let’s look at your legs to start. You need a wardrobe of stockings that work with all outfits, moods and weather.

Today, we are going undercover to emphasize the importance of wearing the right undergarments. Tis the season for lightweight fabrics and colors that need the proper pairings in order to look their best on you. If you follow me, you know that my dream as a stylist is that women everywhere get dressed with intention everyday. Looking your best and feeling your best for the magical day that lies ahead, will bring you heightened good energy and abundance. Beginning each day with this heightened level of confidence that you deserve, will greatly enhance the abundance that you draw into your life, an abundance of love, happiness, and opportunities for your beautiful life.

 

Beating the heat can be beautiful when wearing this wonderful undershirt that will keep you cool and confident this season. If you have every worried about sweating or leaving stains on your pretty blouses, worry no more thanks to Nudy Patooty.

-Feel fresh and keep your clothes clean all day
-Super soft bamboo fabric regulates your body temperature, is anti-odor and wicks and absorbs moisture away from your body
-Gentle stretch in the fabric smooth’s your figure
-Reinforcement in the underarm prevents perspiration and antiperspirant from staining clothes
-Reduce the frequency and cost of dry cleaning
When it comes to the color of your undergarments this summer keep it nude. This skin tone color is camouflaged under all of your summer wardrobe choices and makes it much easier to get dressed with confidence. Getting dressed with intention is easy and effortless when you start with the right pieces.
Bottoms UP!
Another favorite of mine are the vanishing edge panties found at Soma Intimates.
soma
These panties stay in place, give you the appropriate coverage for your shape and they virtually disappear under your clothing. Say goodbye to VPL (visible panty lines) forever.
Wearing the right undergarments sets the foundation for your clothing. Good undergarments make your clothes look even better on you. Getting dressed with purpose and intention is easy when you purge what isn’t working and you bring in the pieces that serve you best.
Dress for every moment because every moment matters in your beautiful life.
Yours in style,
Debbie

Summer is a season that everyone loves. This is the season of warmth, extended sunshine, and happiness. It’s also a time when your style can go horribly wrong or beautifully right. You need options and there are plenty of new and exciting styles, shapes and products to keep you cool and your look HOT!  I found great pieces that are easy to wear, easy to pack and will give you instant fashion and style. This summer, be that girl that everyone is drawn to because you have it all going on. You make looking good, look easy.

The Legacy Skirted Legging

This brilliant, one-piece fashion combination is an instant boost of confidence, covering you in all the right places! It looks great with a t-shirt or tank for a casual walk with the dog, or yoga class. I love its versatility because it can also be styled differently throughout your day for all of your activities. Pair it with a blouse, dress up your tee with a scarf, and denim jacket or wear it with a blazer to give it a chic, European flair. You are that woman who is appropriately dressed for your life but takes it up a notch without even trying. Choose the right pieces and show your friends how easy it can be to look fabulous EVERY SINGLE DAY.

The Romper

The romper has returned from the eighties. I remember wearing these in terrycloth as a kid! Today, they are modern and fun but you definitely do not need to spend a lot of money on a piece that may just be here for a season.  Check out FandF Clothing, a British store bringing us their fabulous and on trend looks at affordable prices. The first two stores in Holyoke, Massachusetts and Trumbull, CT with many, more stores to come.

As a stylist who has dressed women for almost 3 decades, I believe that women deserve to look and feel their best everyday and it’s easier than you think. I want you to enhance your look because it will enhance your life!

Dress for every moment because every moment matters.

Remember when you covertly shopped at consignment shops and were embarrassed to tell somewhere where you got your great designer top? Not any more!!! Show off those awesome finds!  Brag about that great buy!  Consignment shopping is IN!!!!  People are now boasting about consignment shopping! Whether it’s just a single piece, an accessory or an entire outfit, where else can you shop for multiple brands & designers for a FRACTION of the original cost under one roof?  You can afford name brands & designers! 

A few tips – don’t look for something specific – i.e. white jeans, create an entire outfit – we call it Make Your Own Mannequin!, ask for assistance – the store personnel KNOW their inventory!, try on multiple sizes because all designers are not created equal.

Here are a few examples of great items we found.  Consignment is COOL!!!!

It’s been quite some time since my last blog and it feels great to be back! I really enjoy connecting with you, sharing stories, tips and information to help you dress for every moment because every moment matters.  You deserve to look and feel your best every single day and in order to do this you need a closet of clothes that flatter your shape and your life at this moment.   You need pieces you can count on, to grab and go, pieces that are stylish and comfortable. Today’s fashion is defined by what looks good on you and what gives you, that boost of confidence.  I am always reminding women that you can feel great wearing your clothes everyday, not just on special occasions.  I believe having great style is about making the connection with who you are on the inside so that you can approach each beautiful day, happier and with higher confidence.  It only feels appropriate to re-launch my blog with some great tips on how to get control of your closet and to highlight some great new pieces that fit you and your life perfectly!

Here are a few tips on how to build a closet full of clothes you love.

 

  1. Spring closet cleanse – clean the clutter and free up space to make room for the new you, the new pieces that accentuate the positive features of your shape and that enhance your eye color and skin tone. This year, approach your closet with an honest and open heart. Evaluate each piece and ask yourself, how do I feel when I wear this item?  Feeling the positive emotions from your clothing evokes positive feelings while wearing the garment. If you feel good, you look good and your day is bright. Connect with how your clothes make you feel and purge the items that don’t fit this good vibe. Get rid of the items that no longer serve you and donate or consign them, they may be a better fit for someone else.
  2.  Begin to replace your clothes with new items that you LOVE! When I say LOVE, I mean be choosy, make the choices that flatter your shape and fit your life.  By eliminating impulse purchases you avoid clutter, confusion and self-doubt and you can truly begin wearing daily outfits that you LOVE while staying focused on the goals for your wardrobe.   It is easier than you think to build a closet full of clothes you really enjoy wearing and it’s ok for it to take some time, your worth it.
  3. Look in the mirror and smile, rule #3 is one of the most important steps in this process of re-building your closet with you in mind. Smiling at your reflection may take some practice, smile and give yourself a compliment, it’s much more powerful than looking in the mirror focusing on your flaws. You are perfectly imperfect.  If you begin transitioning your mindset away from a negative, self-defeating mind into a complimentary, beautiful and healthy perspective a wonderful shift in your life will occur. I have seen this happen time and time again, be kind to yourself and great things will come. Those pesky five pounds will finally come off, you will begin making healthier and more beautiful choices for your life, because it all begins with self-respect and admiration for your unique being.
  4. Shop EVERYWHERE, don’t limit yourself by becoming a shopper of sameness. Open your closet doors and your mind to finding pieces you love on-line, at consignment and thrift stores as well as your favorite department store.

 

Here are a few of my favorite shopping sites.

http://www.qvc.com/ – for great values and unique pieces – check out the Legacy brands!

http://www.shopstyle.com/- shop by category – dresses-shoes etc.

http://www.ebay.com/- for your designer favorites.

 

Have a beautiful weekend!
