Tips To Find A Bathing Suit

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.

For more Tips To Find A Bathing Suit, read this blog I wrote a few years ago.

The Only Trend You Should Wear

Here’s the top 2022 fashion trend, but know I hate trends for my clients.
There I said it.

Trends are designed to make you buy new clothes.

New clothes are wonderful as long as they look good on you, and when a trend doesn’t look good on you, neither will your new clothes.

There are tons of clothing style choices these days that don’t look ridiculously trendy but do slim us down and elevate our style.

But, I do have one exception.

The hottest trend for this year is…Dopamine Dressing!!

Dopamine Dressing involves dressing with the intention of boosting your mood, and when you wear clothes that make you look and feel slimmer, confident, approachable, and put-together, you’ll be boosted every single day of the year!

Here’s a bit more of my thoughts on fashion trends and dressing to look and feel happy:

Clothes Shopping Mistake

Clothes Shopping Mistake

It’s time for you to stop making this very common
clothes shopping mistake.

Stop buying more of what you already own.

When it comes to buying clothes, you are likely drawn to what you’re used to wearing, even if it might not be your most flattering look or fit.

And then, you buy it over and over. Be it another pair of black pants, leggings, a top you have in multiple colors, etc.

Break your habit, and try on something you’ve never worn before. Hey, even I need to do this sometimes.

I promise you’ll be happily surprised when a totally different style, fit and color looks very good on you, and then your closet won’t be filled with clothes that all look the same and you won’t be bored like this woman was.

Tiny tweaks make big differences in how we look, and when you know the ones perfect for your unique features and life, you will stop feeling bad when you go out and start feeling and looking like the fabulous woman you are.

Here is another one of my tips for you to use starting today..

When you’re ready to stop feeling less than and turning down invitations and other opportunities, book a complimentary Know What To Wear Call with me and find out how to get outfits that will get you excited to go out and be seen.

 

 

How To Look Better In Jeans

How To Look Better In Jeans

Who else has spent hours, days, or years trying to find jeans that fit and flatter?

Let’s face it, finding a pair of jeans that we can get into and zipped, is as frustrating as trying on bathing suits.

Actually, worse because we can sit by the pool not wearing a bathing suit.

We could wear jeans…

and now we’re right back at struggling to find a pair that make our tush and tummy look good.

Today I’m going to share tips on how to look better in jeans & where to find them.

The search began for me decades ago, and as my body, designs, and fabrications have changed, so have the jeans that look good on me and likely you as well.

How To Look Better In JeansHow To Look Better In Jeans

Watch my video below to see why rolling up or shortening
your jeans can be
a thumbs up or down, and so much more.

NOTE: I still love skinny-legged jeans, which is what I’m wearing in the above photos, despite the current trend of more baggy-shaped jeans being pushed on us.
Skinny/narrow styles can make your legs look longer and leaner when worn with longer tops, and if this shape isn’t right for you because it truly isn’t flattering on everyone, try straight-legged jeans.
Straight-legged have a bit more wiggle room, without adding unnecessary width to your body.

Grab all my jean suggestions below.

Here are my current favorite jeans for you to try.

90% Of New Year's Resolution Fail

90% Of New Year’s Resolutions Fail

This means 90% of the women who tell me they want to lose weight before they work with me end up calling me exactly one year later and usually are not thinner.

Why?

Because for many, losing weight wasn’t that easy, and sometimes even more weight was gained. Yeah, that happens a lot and I’ve been there myself.

Don’t beat yourself up, if you are not successful with a resolution.

Instead, of trying to change your body, how about you change your clothes?

If your clothes are wrong for you, losing weight isn’t going to be the solution. Often, my clients lose weight after learning how to dress the body they have.

When you like what you see, it changes how you feel and that’s the best motivator of all.

Instead of letting another new year go by feeling low in self-confidence about what you wear and the message you are sending with your clothes, go here to pick one of the few remaining spots I have left in January for a complimentary Know What To Wear call. Find out what you need to change about changing your clothes.

 

Or, you could let another year go by.

But, why?

How To Add Sparkle To Your Holiday Outfit

Every closet I’ve been in either virtually or in person, has the “oh this is what I wear for Christmas” top or pant.

Put away that red sweater you’ve worn for the last 10 years and those ornament printed velvet pants, and get inspired with these simple tips that turn a basic outfit into a party one with some sparkle to brighten up your gathering.

Ever see another person wear something that you love, and run out to buy it with great enthusiasm only to put it on and realize it doesn’t look as great on you as it did on her?
