Has Any of These Ever Been Your Why?

Makeovers for women

The top 3 reasons you may be sick and tired of trying to figure out what to wear:


Weight – You do not have to change before making a change.

Money – What has buying the wrong clothes and/or not feeling confident about yourself really cost you?

Fear – Of going out of your comfort zone and/or letting someone in to transform your image & confidence.

Below you can hear my solutions to the top 3 “I don’t know what to wear” reasons you may be struggling with, in a bonus call to Inner Circle members of Sandy Weiner’s Last First Date dating coaching service.

Makeovers for women

Loved how one participant changed what she was going to wear to a large event the next day while listening to my presentation. I typically change a woman’s struggles with her wardrobe and self image in less than 3 hours, but she did it in less than 30 minutes! You can actually hear in her voice how excited she when she chose to wear something totally different, than before she heard my tips. She made me very proud.

Note: The before and after photos I refer to in this recording can be seen here.

Makeovers for women“Scarlett has a true talent for pulling disparate items of clothing, shoes and accessories from your closet and turning them into amazing new outfits! She is so professional, warm and respectful. If you have fallen into the trap of wearing the same four outfits over and over again then it’s time to hire Scarlett. I feel as if I have a new business wardrobe, something I really needed!”  Julie Jansen Professional Speaker, Coach and Author

What Not To Wear From Weddings To Work

Wedding Dress, Worn Once By Mistake



I was recently at a party and told the story of the best for sale ad I have ever read. For Sale: Wedding Dress Worn Once By Mistake. Recalling this creative, funny and telling advertisement, gave me the idea to ask if you ever wore something by mistake too?

I must admit, that I also once wore a wedding dress by mistake a few decades ago, but enough about me.

Sandy Weiner of Last first Date, forwarded me a great blog post titled What Not To Wear by Arielle Ford on her blog, The Soulmate Secret.

Ms. Ford shared that she received a great life lesson years ago about choosing to always look her best by only wearing clothes that made her look and feel great. She was once asked if she has A, B, and C clothes, with A being her favorite and what she looked and felt great in. Her advisor suggested she should only wear A clothes, so as to not just look good, but feel good.

What you choose to wear totally effects how you and others see yourself, let alone the major boost to ones’s self-esteem. My clients,  Stop Stressing About Dressing workshop and speaking presentation attendees, know that I always stress to be dressed in flattering and confidence boosting clothes, so they are prepared for any opportunity anywhere and at anytime.

You can meet your next best client, employer, friend, true love, you name it, when you least expect it. So why not look and feel as fantastic as possible?

About 6 years ago, I attended a women’s business luncheon because Jane Pollak was the speaker. I had heard her speak on  a tele-seminar for professional image consultants, and I just had to hear more of her business advice for entrepreneurs and hopefully get to meet her as well.

I found Jane before she was to speak, and introduced myself to her and naturally bought her book,  Soul Proprietor: 101 Lessons from a Lifestyle Entrepreneur.

Jane hired me about one month later as she loved what I was wearing, and I cannot even count the number of clients she has referred to me since our first wardrobe styling and shopping days.

Here is the jacket I wore, that to this day Jane still remembers. This was a photo shoot for my first website, back in 2006 when I was only providing makeup application services..

Please share below, what you may have worn by mistake, or better yet: what you wore when you met a person that changed your life for the better.

Jane Pollak“I’m the first one to tell people, when they compliment me on how I look, that I have a secret weapon: Wardrobe Stylist Scarlett Debease. I’ve worked with Scarlett for years now and recommend her heartily to family, friends and colleagues. She not only shops with me for beautiful pieces to add to my wardrobe, but she also comes to my home and coordinates the new purchases with the rest of my wardrobe, then photographs the outfits to create my own personal look-book. I NEVER have to think, “What will I wear today?” I simply consult my look-book and get dressed. I know I’ve saved time and money using Scarlett’s invaluable service.” Leading Remarkable Women To Uncommon Success

A Real Before and After Makeover


                                 Before and After Makeover.

Ever wonder why most of the TV makeovers take a woman in jeans and then put her in a cocktail dress as part of her makeover?

Let’s not forget, she is also placed in heels she can barely walk in, and the TV stylists often remove her glasses so, sadly, she cannot even clearly see what she now looks like.

That kind of makeover drives me crazy because the women’s lifestyle, budget, and needs were not considered for her makeover. These are made-for-TV makeovers and not for real women like you and my clients.

You rarely need to wear a cocktail dress, but you do need to know what and how to wear what you already own and what you should buy to expand your wardrobe and make it easy for you to figure out what to wear for the 300-plus other days of the year.

You likely want to know what to wear to the grocery store, a date, or to meet a client or friend. You know, all that real-life kind of stuff.

Here are a few before and after makeovers for you to see.

Each client told me these music to my ears words: “I never would have put these pieces together”.

Personal styling consultations allow you to learn which colors, cuts, and styles will be the most flattering on you with what you already own and should buy.

Imagine how successful you’d be shopping for new clothes when you’ve learned what works best for you.

Imagine getting excited to get dressed and go out, instead of being stressed and unsure of how you look in your clothes.

And then she said…

“Scarlett’s warmth and kindness immediately put me at ease as soon as she stepped in the door. She came to help me put together an outfit for the most important moment of my career, giving my first TEDx talk! I was working through my stage fright, and I knew that if I looked great on stage, I would feel much more confident on the big day.
Scarlett helped me choose the right colors for my skin and hair, and ended up not only choosing a fabulous outfit for the TEDx talk, but she also put together many more outfits for my professional life. I would never have thought of combining that blouse with that jacket and skirt. It was like getting five new outfits without spending a penny on clothes.”
