Are Your Clothes Bringing You Down?

Are Your Clothes Bringing You Down?

Are your clothes bringing you down? Have way too many? Nothing you love to wear?

Don’t think there is something wrong with you when it comes to your clothes.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…it’s the clothes that need fixing, not you!!

The reason you have lots of clothes in your closet, and “nothing to wear” is that you keep

buying and wearing clothes that are not right for your shape, age, personality, and proportions.

Not because you are not thinner, taller, or younger.

Watch my 2nd episode on Better Than Gossip TV which airs on Binge Networks TV, and

learn how to shop more successfully for clothes, and why shopping alone is a really great idea.

 

Are Your Clothes Bringing You Down?

 

And then, my wonderful virtual styling client said…

 

Are Your Clothes Bringing You Down?

Working with Scarlett De Bease hasn’t been “work.” It’s been a joy. Like many women, over time I’ve transitioned through wardrobe and physical changes. Scarlett helped me not only clear the clutter from my closet but also my inner critic. My sense of what colors, shapes, and styles look best on me feels sharper. I have confidence as I shop online or in person for what’s right for me, and what I can leave on the rack. (In the past, many of those items would have come home and remained on a hanger or consigned). Today I browsed in a favorite store and noticed many items aren’t for me, but I also let the manager know what I’m looking for and she’ll set them aside for me. It creates sustainable habits for my wallet and the planet. Win-win. Let Scarlett get into your head and wardrobe and you’ll find yourself winning, too! KATHY KOENIG

Why Your Clothes Don’t Fit.

This tiny detail is one of the many reasons why your clothes don’t fit and why you might

not have any idea why something is wrong with your outfit, but you can’t quite put your finger on it.

Take a look at my video on YouTube and see what’s in your closet that fits this common fit problem.

Until you can identify all the different styling details, and there are a lot, you will always wonder why your clothes don’t fit the way you think they should.

Pay attention to details in the clothes you wear and buy, and you’ll end up saving money and walking into a room looking and feeling confident, instead of feeling like you can’t quite get it right.

Here’s how I can show you how to be the best-dressed woman in any room.

I did not look up the dating score in case my husband reads my blog. 😂😂😂😂

Go see what your photo is saying to your audience, and see if it is what you intended.

Do you deny, resist, and ignore your problems?

Do you deny, resist, and ignore your what-to-wear problems?

I hear it all the time from women, who wish they hadn’t wished for years pretending there wasn’t a problem hiding in their closet.

The video below explains what I’m talking about, and if you are ready to be confident when you walk into the room, send me a message with the subject line ME.

Here are a few telltale signs you are tired of guessing what you should wear:

  • You have lots of price tags in your closet from clothes you bought but have never actually worn.
  • When heading to an event you give yourself a little fashion show and end up so disappointed that you consider not going.
  • You’re hanging on to old clothes you used to love in the hopes that someday you’ll “fit into them again”.
  • You feel like clothes shopping is stressful and a big waste of your time.
  • You dream of being able to open your closet and easily pick something to wear you know you’ll look fabulous in without being embarrassed bumping into someone you know.

Sounds like you?
Then we should talk. Contact me for a complimentary Be the Best Dressed Woman In The Room session, and let’s see if we’d be a good fit for working together, and getting you the best-fitting and looking clothes to increase your income, impact, and influence.

Tips To Avoid Buying The Wrong Clothes.

When you know the tips to avoid buying the wrong clothes, you’ll find yourself getting less
frustrated looking into your closet and seeing all the money you’ve wasted on clothes.

Step 1: Look both ways when trying on clothes.
Add a third way never hurts by looking behind yourself too.

Tips To Avoid Buying The Wrong Clothes.

Here I am trying on a top that is a twist, kinda literally, on a basic white top.

From the front, I’m loving the waist-defining feature of the tie front.

Step 2: From the side, oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Heck no. Like, so not happening/buying.
Tips to avoid buying the wrong clothes

You likely have a few, or yikes many, pieces in your closet that don’t look great on you from one or more angles, and you’re so tired of wasting money on those clothes.

Very tired.

I get it. I know it’s frustrating that you think you should be able to choose the right clothes to wear and buy, but year after year you still don’t.

That’s why I’m here.

That’s why I created my personal wardrobe styling service.

If you relate to the women I speak about in this video below, write ME in an email to Scarlett@ScarlettImage.com.

Note: The gathering along my bustline was also a no, and the pants I was trying on were a thumbs-down for sure.

Stephen Colbert gave me styling advice!

Yes, it’s true: Stephen Colbert gave me styling advice!

Stephen Colbert gave me styling advice

Yup, that’s my husband and me as VIP guests at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

No, we didn’t plan our outfits but isn’t it weird how couples tend to match without even trying?

As a VIP guest, you have the opportunity to go on stage and ask Stephen questions off camera, and being one who never shies away from an opportunity, I quickly raised my hand and he picked me to ask away.

Here’s what I asked, and as a personal stylist I simply couldn’t resist:

“What is the first thing you take off and put on when you get home after work?”

Without a moment’s hesitation, he told me the first thing he puts on before he walks through the door is a smile for his wife.

I mean come on, how wonderful is that????

And he’s right. The best accessory is a smile, and when you’re wearing clothes that make you look and feel confident and attractive, smiling is so, so much easier. It’s automatic.

Speaking of smiling, here is an unsolicited testimonial a client gave me, that made me smile and tear up. I’d be crazy not to share it with you.

“My experience with Scarlett was a wonderful internal and external journey. I not only experience joy getting dressed every day, but was reminded that it’s okay to wait for something I actually like.

Moving to Southern California from San Francisco, I noticed that if I wasn’t wearing athletic clothes,  I was often asked,  “Why are you so dressed up.”  This was even if I was wearing jeans.  Eventually, my San Francisco clothes got old, and my style became frumpy and drab.

Scarlett’s online closet, where I saw all my worn and over-washed clothes, helped me see that I have really neglected my esthetics for some time.

As a psychotherapist, it has been an illuminating internal journey.  

Being the 3rd sister growing up, I was used to oversized hand-me-downs, which were clothes I never liked but accepted. As an adult, I often settled for colors and styles that were just mediocre.

What I appreciate about Scarlett is that she was not offended if I didn’t like what she picked out and assured me she was not the designer and was fine with it.  

She did a great job learning my style and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to refresh their wardrobe. 

I now have new shoes, jeans, belts, dresses, and great workout clothes.  I loved it!  An excellent project of self-love and self-respect.  I highly recommend Scarlett to help you find your inner queen again.”

If you’re ready to stop guessing what clothes are right for you and instead learn which are perfect for you to wear, pick a time here and I’ll tell you how you’d be smiling every day too.

 

Are you making excuses?

There have been many times a new client confessed that prior to working with me, she often did this when invited to events.

It pains me to hear these stories and the fun that was missed.

Watch my brief video below, and please don’t let this happen to you.

You deserve to be happy and confident about what you wear, and never think that you can’t.

 

 

 

Tips To Find A Bathing Suit That Fits

It takes only 2 to find a well-fitting bathing suit.

2 is the magic number.

Do not and I mean do not try a bathing suit on in your clothing size.

I have no idea why the swimsuit and wedding dress designers chose to size their designs differently than clothes, but they did. 

And they make women feel big and unhappy.

You should try on suits in 1 to 2 sizes up from your clothing size, and if you don’t you’re destined for a miserable, ego-deflating shopping experience because the swimsuit will be too tight and short on you.

Go up and you’ll look and feel like you went down a size or two.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
