No Barbie for me…

No Barbie for me…

It’s Barbie mania out there!

Ah, those Barbie-less wonder years!

Growing up, I was the envy of all the other girls in the neighborhood because I never had a Barbie doll.


Oh, my mother was quite the rebel, marching to the beat of her own drum! While everyone else was swooning over those impossibly proportioned dolls, my mom had a different plan for me. She believed in individuality and uniqueness, and she made it her mission to ensure I never felt pressured to conform to societal norms.

Instead of Barbie, she bought me wholesome Tammy and her sister Pepper.

Did you even know those two existed???

It was tough being the one with the different doll, but also educational.

Why be like everyone else?

My mom encouraged me to explore the world of creativity, adventure, and imagination by not copying others. No disappearing into the crowd for me.

When I wanted white Go-Go boots, she bought me orange ones.


OK, she took it too far that time, but you get her intention.

Thanks to my mother, I’ve become a personal wardrobe stylist who loves to be unique, and creative.

Looking back, I’m incredibly grateful for my mom’s unconventional approach because it instilled in me a deep appreciation for being different and thinking outside the box.

Speaking of boxes, here I am in a Barbie box at the premier of the Barbie movie at The Prospector Theater where my son works.
Definitely check it out.

Here’s to being different!!!

Note: The Prospector Theater is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to providing competitive and inclusive employment to people with disabilities through the operation of a first-run movie theater and online popcorn business.

Just like Barbie, we all have our own style magic! 🎀 Now, it’s time to embrace what makes you special. Are you ready to transform your style and love the clothes you wear? Book a Zoom call with me to find out how to work with me in person or virtually so you can finally love the clothes you wear and how you look in them.

Strangers Could Compliment You Too

Strangers Could Compliment You Too

You know what’s awesome? When you wear an outfit that gets compliments.

Or when you contribute to a conversation, and people thank you for your two cents.

It always makes you smile – inside and out.

Compliments come in many forms, but when someone says, “Hey, you look great!”, it’s like a round of applause for your day!

Let’s be real, those compliments make you feel like you’re on top of the world, kind of like that day you get your hair done feeling.

When we dress in a way that makes us feel confident and gets those compliments rolling in, it’s a transformative experience that impacts you on multiple levels and I might add, is infectious.

You deserve to feel confident, appreciated, and downright fabulous! So please put on an outfit that gives you those feelings, even if your only place to go today is the supermarket.

And then she said…

Much to her delight, and mine, one of my wonderful clients is getting complimented about her outfits so often, she asked me to mail her my business cards for her to pass out.

Another cherished long-time client simply responds with “Thank you, it’s Scarlett” when people compliment her outfits.

Considering how much I strive to assure my clients get compliments not only from themselves but others as well, these experiences are one of my favorite compliments to receive. ❤️🤗❤️🤗

What’s your favorite compliment to get or give?

These are the business cards I mailed to my client, in a note card titled Applause. 🙂

Time for you to be noticed and receive the compliments you deserve, Book a Zoom call 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.

Are You Also Fed Up With Body Shaming?

 body shaming
Body Shaming is wrong!


I never knew how much Jennifer Aniston and I had in common.

Oh, not that the paparazzi follows me around and is endlessly commenting on my looks, or because I am a celebrity and the world just can’t get enough of me.

But on how we both are fed up with the unrealistic, unfair and unkind judgements women are subjected to over and over again. We share the belief that Body Shaming has got to stop, and speaking up is one way to make that happen.

Women are constantly getting the message from magazine and TV celebrity profiles, that anything resembling a ‘normal’ body shape should be labeled as fat or pregnant.

Yeah people, we ladies have tummies, fatty deposits all over our bodies and skin not a tight as it once was, which in all honesty is NORMAL!

I love what Jennifer Aniston wrote for the Huffington Post:

“For the record, I am not pregnant,”.  “What I am is fed up.”

“I resent being made to feel ‘less than’ because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: ‘pregnant’ or ‘fat,’ ” she continued to write.

So let me tell you how I really do have something in common with the rightfully fed up actress.

When I was in my 20’s, I booked a massage as a treat, after a long and grueling 3 day business retreat.

Keeping in mind that I weighed about 20 pounds less than I do now, my body shape was pretty darn close to Jennifer Aniston’s.

Upon entering the spa, my masseuse asked me, “do you know if you are having a boy or a girl?”

Once I collected myself, I responded with “I’m having a burger with fries.”

Body Shaming

See, I told you Jennifer Anniston and I had a lot in common.

FYI We also attended both attended The Performing Arts High School, as in the 1980 film Fame, just not at the same time. Her acting career went just a bit further than mine.

styling tips & tricks

“Scarlett has provided me with a completely new vision for how I dress. After working with her remotely, I was armed with the knowledge I needed to let go of clothes and accessories that didn’t serve (or flatter) me any longer. I have transformed from the person who walks out of stores empty handed or worse with the wrong silhouettes and colors purchased, into someone who has a clear vision for what works and what I need to pull together outfits. Scarlett is a joy to work with and her recommendations were spot on.”

Above is what a virtual styling client said after working with me.

Imagine how great your benefit will be, working with me in person on 9/16/16.

More Ways To Cover Up Your Upper Arms

Tired Of Sleeveless Clothes?

More Ways To Cover Up Your Upper Arms

Check out these arm cover ups in the online newsletter, which I am a contributor to, The Three Tomatoes. They use fabulous Helen Mirren as a perfect example of how a woman maintains a high level of class and glamour, yet always has her upper arms covered.

I even made a video a couple of years ago on the subject of our, less than pageant ready, upper arms.

More Ways To Cover Up Your Upper Arms

It’s not you – it’s your clothes…because you never learned the specifics that will allow you to transform what you choose to wear and  buy.

Stress no more, because now you can get what to wear advice that you can easily follow, while laughing as you learn in my recently published book, Stop Stressing About Dressing. Get your copy here on Amazon.

I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read on how to look and feel great every day. I’m a protege of Scarlett’s and find her tips and explanations invaluable in this slim volume. “That’s why I should wear more ruffles!” is one small reminder of why particular textures, colors and necklines flatter some and not others. Scarlett is a genius in this arena and generously shares her fashion secrets with us mere mortals. I highly recommend Stop Stressing About Dressing to all women, particularly those of us over 50.

Are You Mustard Or Ketchup?

what to wear advice for women

There they go again, telling us what colors we must wear to look ‘in style’ for the next season.

The color Guru Pantone has named Oak Bluff as one of the must wear colors for fall.what to wear advice for women

Looks like mustard to me, and I must add that it is an extremely difficult color to wear near the face for most women, especially brunettes.

So if you must add mustard, oh I mean Oak Bluff to your wardrobe, please do so from the waist down. I just can’t give what to wear advice for women, without also giving what not to wear suggestions.

Me, and I’m not bluffing, will be sticking with ketchup…oops, I mean red. Why? Well, red is a color that works for me, and won’t make me look like a condiment.

what to wear advice for women“For eight years, I worked as a freelancer, and dressed either for at-home comfort or for events. Now I was embarking on a corporate job that required a new wardrobe. Or so I thought. Scarlett put together my existing separates into creative, stylish looks; she helped me donate the pieces and suits that were a là mode when I last worked in an office, and identified colors, looks and pieces to fit my figure and fill in the gaps.” Jennifer M. Brown, V-P and Publisher, Knopf Books for Young Readers
