Don’t Let This One Slip You By

Sometimes it seems that clothes are getting sheerer and sheerer, while we are looking to show less and less.

Occasionally a dress needs a slip, but they are no longer a standard item in lingerie stores. If you still have one from 20 years ago, you know it is a bit old-fashioned, and not very comfortable as it probably has little or no stretch.

 I found the perfect solution hidden in the June 2015 issue of The Oprah magazine, the Bumbrella.

This panty and slip combination is perfect under sheer dresses and skirts, as well as offering added protection for when you bend over.

Perhaps if Marilyn Monroe had worn one of these under that infamous white dress, her then-husband Joe DiMaggio, wouldn’t have gotten so mad. They divorced shortly thereafter.

“As a client of Scarlett’s, I’ve been lucky enough to take advantage of her online shopping service. Once I let her know what I was looking for, she took off, quickly sending me a long list of links to specific clothing that she knew I’d like, along with comments on sizing and her opinion. I wound up with all the pieces I needed, plus a few I didn’t even think about, but loved when I got them. Scarlett makes it easy, stress-free and super-convenient. I’m a life-long client.”

3 Ways For Women Over 40 To wear Skinny Pants.

Back a few years ago, I would not wear skinny pants simply because I looked terrible in them. Tops were typically designed to be cropped and the skinny pants were made so tight, that tools were practically required to pry my body in or out of them.

But then fashion designers heard the cries of women all over the world, as they wiggled their way out of their skinny pants, and added lycra to them so women would no longer need to go to extremes to get in and out of their skinny pants.

Around the same time, cropped tops were being replaced with longer tops. Perhaps designers actually noticed that most women over the age of 30 were tired of pulling down their shirts so as not to expose their belly buttons.

Now, I knew how to wear skinny pants and now many of my clients how to do so as well.

Here are some of my tips on how to wear skinny pants, no matter what age or size a woman may be:

1. Curvy, hippy or wider in the middle shaped women should wear tops that stop just below the widest part of your hips.

2. Straight body shapes can wear tops that meet the waistline or all the way down to to the hips. See below, how one of my clients looks fabulous in the right pair of skinny pants in one of the before and after pictures below.

3. Skinny pants can be worn tucked into boots, with flats or heels. Personally, I love wearing skinny pants with boots.

The photos on the top of this post are from a How To Wear skinny jeans feature, with great tips by Adam Glassman, in an issue of Oprah magazine.

“I ordered the dress we talked about; it is a knock out! I would never have chosen that for myself, and I think it’s the one I’ll wear to both the wedding and the ceremony for my friend the following week. Can’t believe it only cost $60! I greatly appreciated your keen and objective eye to help me know what might look good on me, and I found your knowledge of the stores merchandise invaluable. I just don’t have the time or patience to shop, and you knew exactly what to suggest at three or four stores I like. I will happily recommend you to my friends and I’d love to delegate my shopping entirely to you!” – Boston, Ma.—Mari Brennan Barrera

 

When Do You Feel Best About Your Body?

When Do You Feel Best About Your Body?

The result of a poll of 4,000 Oprah magazine readers is very telling and quite relatable.

 

When Do You Feel Best About Your Body?

 

The numbers that stuck out the most to me, after all, I am a wardrobe stylist and personal shopper, were the answers to the following poll question:

When do you feel best about your body?

10%  When I catch someone checking me out

14%  When someone compliments me

14%  When I’m killing it at the gym

30%  Other

32%  When I’m wearing a fabulous new outfit

What a woman wears wins!!

Yet why then do so many women put off discovering the clothes that will allow them to love choosing what to wear?

STOP the madness!!

Don’t let weight struggles or guilt, keep you from looking and feeling good about yourself now.
Size, age, stress, budget or time should never keep a woman from taking care of and feeling good about herself.

Please tell me in the comment box below, When Do You Feel Best About Your Body? If anyone chooses Other, could you let me know what other is?

Pssst…Overheard In The Dressing Room

Take a look and listen to one of my clients in the video below talk about her first shopping experience with me.
P.S. YEARS went by till she finally made a personal shopping appointment with me and it looks like she won’t wait that long again.
