What To Wear In and After Zoom

Are you getting nervous or excited about knowing what to wear in and after Zoom and actually entering a room?

Dressing after Zoom, meaning from head to toe, doesn’t have to be stressful.

But, not knowing what to wear is self-destructive to your confidence and bank account.

Take a look at the video I made last week where I do a bit of ranting and introduce foreign items such as lipstick, shoes, pedicures, and BRAS!!!

Ohhh, and the free webinar I mention in the below video is set for
April 9, 2021 at 11am EST.

Why You Shouldn’t Close Your Buttons

Very often you may think that if you can’t close the buttons of your jacket or cardigan, you automatically think it doesn’t fit and so you don’t wear it.

You’re wrong, and I’m telling you that with love.

Note: Going forward, I refer to those as toppers.

Take a look at these two photos of me in my fitted blue topper and see the hourglass shape it gives me when open, which makes me look thinner.

Why You Shouldn't Close Your Buttons

If I chose to only wear it when closed… it looks like I’ve gained weight, had breast enlargement surgery, and am unable to close it. ūüė≥

Why You Shouldn't Close Your Buttons

Tip: When your topper is loose-fitting, try buttoning one or two buttons in the middle to give you a more defined waistline.

Watch the video below where I talk about the above outfit, ¬†and how it’s possible to use fewer clothes to make more outfits.

How To Quickly Make Your Closet Look Better

Q. Who wants to know how to quickly make your closet look better?
A. Everyone.

I’ve said it before and am saying it again.

One of the quickest ways to make your clothes and the closets they hang in look neater and more welcoming, is to put all your clothes on identical hangers.

You’ll also most likely will find a few pieces you’ve forgotten about and discover others that truly need to go.

These hangers below, not plastic, are the type you should use and will love. They’ll also keep your clothes in better shape and keep them from sliding off the hanger.

Trust me it’s worth the small amount of time to do this, and while you’re at it please take out all those nasty wire hangers and give them back to the dry-cleaners for recycling.

Here Comes The Bride…no, not me.

Recently a longtime and very stylish fellow member of a woman’s networking group, asked me if I would consider offering a group virtual color consultation for her daughter-in-law to be and bridesmaids. She¬†thought it would be a fun way to gather from all over the country, grand-mothers, moms, aunts and friends… it sure was.

How To Quickly Make Your Closet Look BetterFrom the bride herself:
“That was the perfect activity for a bridesmaids brunch!
Not only should it be something everyone is cognitive of when getting ready for events, but everyone learned something and it also worked as a fun way to break the ice”. Eva Maria

I wish I had thought of this fun service myself.

I showed the bride and bridesmaids what their best colors and necklines are, so that they will be even more gorgeous on next year’s wedding day.

Reply back to get the details on how your family can have this stylish wedding party fun too. It really was a blast!

 

 

Don’t Say I Didn’t Tell You

Galentine’s Day

Many and I mean many years ago, I was at a conference in California while working for a major cosmetic company.

After 2 days of non-stop presentations and lectures, we were all gifted a spa treatment to help us wind down.

I booked my first ever massage. This was an indulgence I never gave myself before, so I was really looking forward to it.

I had about 1 1/2 hours before my appointment, so I treated myself to a poolside burger with fries.

Bliss…right?

Then I hear my name being called, and into the massage cabana by the pool I go.

After a few polite exchanges, and as I was getting onto the table, the masseuse asked me: “how far along are you? Do you know what you’re having?”

I replied with the first thing that came into my mortified mind…”I’m having a burger and fries”.

I was startled and embarrassed. I knew my stomach got bloated after eating certain foods, but never thought much about it…until then.

What we eat can have all kinds of bad side effects, including making us blame our bodies about how clothes look on us.

And, now after almost a full year of Covid stress and being home a lot, your body, wardrobe, and mind might not be where you want them to be.

We’ve got you covered, because¬†Integrative Dietitian Esther Blum¬†and I are hosting a FREE, yes a free Galentine‚Äôs Day live event of fitness and fashion!

It’s is all about empowering you to become your best self and I don’t want you to ever say I didn’t tell you about it!

REGISTER HERE, tell a friend, mark your calendar, and be ready to take lots of notes! We can’t wait to spend time with you.

Buying More Clothes Isn’t What You Need

Jennifer Klepper, the author of Unbroken Threads, has a great 10-minute  WIPMondays Instagram show.

WIP stands for work in progress. Aren’t we all WIPers?

She asked me to be a guest a little over a month ago, and even I was amazed at how much can be shared in just a few minutes.

I gave a few tips and thoughts about what you already have in your closet and that buying more clothes isn’t what you need to get your closet to serve you well.

Why Buying More Clothes Isn't What You NeedHere’s what Jennifer wrote after my spot on her Monday 10-Minute Instagram show:

Full truth: My closet includes two embarrassingly large stacks of pants and skirts that don’t fit me anymore. I used to be thinner. So there. I’m going to take Scarlett’s advice: box them up and get them out of the closet. I know what looks good on me. Why keep the stuff that doesn’t?

After you watch my 10-minute spot, reply back with what you did, or plan on doing with some of the clothes in your closet. I love hearing from you.

Oh, and please ignore my Casper ūüĎĽ¬†like appearance. I have no idea why my iPad did that.


New year note:

Here we are at the end of a year we can’t wait to leave behind and to get started on a new year filled with much needed fresh starts….but are you ready for 2021?
If you’ve been hiding behind the excuse of “nobody sees me”, yet remain uncomfortable with what YOU see in the mirror after you get dressed, you are so not taking your career and well-being as seriously as you should.

YOU need to¬†address how you dress so you’ll feel better about yourself, which will get you more comfortable to do virtual speaking, networking, and help you make more money.

Speaking of money, you can save some before my prices increase. Choose one of my virtual styling services¬†or my online course Dress Without Stress, at my 2020 prices for you to use anytime after February 15 when my calendar opens up a bit, in 2021. The sooner you choose the service right for you, the earlier you can work with me, and the faster you’ll be feeling and looking put-together and successful in your career.
