Let Your Hair Choose What to Wear

Let Your Hair Choose What to Wear

Your head may now be spinning, wondering if you have been wearing the wrong colors and fabrics. In fact, your hair just might be standing up, wondering the same. What can Scarlett possibly say about my hair?

In a previous blog, we dealt with the texture of your skin and how it impacts the choice of fabrics to wear near your face. The texture of your hair also can influence what tops and scarves you can wear.

For example: If you have curly hair, try on a top or scarf that has ruffles. Notice how the curls are being duplicated, and how attractive this looks. Nobody will look at you and figure out what you have done to look so great in what you are wearing, but they will notice that you do look especially good.

If you were to wear a top that did not have the same texture as your hair, there would be nothing wrong, but you would be missing out on creating a subtle, but very flattering look. Straight hair is fine with a ruffled scarf, but even better with a straighter style.

No need to pull your hair out, trying to pick out clothes and accessories to go with your straight or curly hair.
Just by becoming more aware of which way your locks look, you will find yourself becoming more aware and creative with your wardrobe.

Clothes Shopping Mistake

Don’t make this common clothes shopping mistake!!!

Watch this short video to see how.

And then she said:

“I hired Scarlett, and my initial thought was,“What was I thinking?” It reminded me of the show “What Not to Wear.” But hiring her was the best decision and gift to me. I donated four bags of clothes that weren’t working for me, and Scarlett helped me update my wardrobe and taught me how to dress for my body type.
Ever since the wardrobe change, my social calendar has been busy.” –
Ann Chin

Closet Makeover Part 2

Closet Makeover Part 2

In my last blog, I gave you a sneak peek into how I re-organized and beautified my client’s closet in California.

Today, you’ll see more and yes, I know that she is very lucky to have a large closet.

Please know that everything I did in terms of organizing will also work in your own closet, no matter how small or big it may be.


I used the floor shoe rack for sneakers and hiking boots, tucked into a corner instead of where it was before under the window.

Tip 1 – Keep all your shoes in one place. In the photo above you can see she had some on the floor, upper shelves, and more in bins. This is very common, but not a good use of space.
Instead, keep them all together on the floor, or if you are lucky enough to have shelves, store them there. See the above-after photo.

Note: Donate or consign the shoes you no longer can, or will wear again.

Tip 2 – Use all the same hangers for your clothes. No plastic or wire ones…please!

Tip 3 – Use see-thru plastic boxes for shoes. It’s ok to use a regular cardboard box now and then too, or use the clear boxes for larger shoes/booties.

Tip 4 – Use a pretty laundry bin. Here’s the one I found for this closet makeover.

Tip 5 – Hang like with like. Sleeveless with sleeveless, short sleeves with shorts, etc.

Tip 6 – If you are fortunate enough to have room for a rug and chair or bench, then use it! I asked my client if she had an extra chair and rug, and much to my delight, she did!

You can transform your closet with tips 1 to 5 in a matter of hours, and find pieces you forgot you had, and recognize those you need to say goodbye to.

P.S. I redid another of her closets which I’ll share one day as well.

Tips For Stress-Free Shopping

Tips For Stress-Free Shopping

The photo below is of an actual warehouse sale I went to. 😳

It also is how most of my clients view shopping for clothes.

Overwhelming, confusing, and impossible. But, if you shop knowing what works best on you, then it’s soooo much easier to go through the racks and zero in on what you should try on, versus leaving empty-handed, depressed, and stressed.

Shopping is only stressful when it’s unsuccessful.

Note: I walked out with a pair of $230 Paige jeans for just $25.
That’s all I bought and no stress was involved.

On a completely other note, I dressed up my website, ScarlettImage.com, and would love for you to take a look and let me know what you think.

Is This Neckline Wrong For YOU Too?

The Secret to a Flattering Neckline

Sometimes the shape and width of a neckline can ruin your outfit.

And you might not even know it.

I love this top, see the above photo, but the neckline was too wide and showed more than it should.

Is This Neckline Wrong For YOU Too?

To solve this problem, I took a pin and slightly gathered the fabric, see photo below; voila, my neckline is no longer too wide for my features and my bra straps are no longer exposed.

Often it’s the little details that can make your clothes right or wrong for you. So when you put something on be a detective and do a little snooping around and pay attention to the details.

If you are looking for style transformation not just information,Β Book a Zoom callΒ to find out how to work with me in-person or virtually, and finally love the clothes you wear and how you look in them.

Raise your hand if you:

Want to make your waist/tummy look smaller?

OMG, that’s a lot of hands up!!!!! 😲😲😲

When you need or want, to distract from a wider middle and/or hips, you need to bring attention to your shoulders.

By bringing the eye up, the middle and bottom will be less noticeable.

Use color blocking, patterns, puffy or flouncy shoulders, scarves, and statement necklaces, not a thin strand of pearls or a small pendant-style piece, to bring the focus up and away from below.

The tops below, are examples of how color blocking and a flouncy sleeve can make small shoulders look broader, waists more defined, and take away attention from anything below you may wish was smaller.
