Beware Pop-Up Ads

Beware Pop-Up Ads

Raise your hand if you’ve ever fallen head over heels for a dress, shirt, or pair of pants while scrolling through your social media feed, or casually browsing online?

Oh, those vibrant colors, perfectly draped fabrics, and models looking like they’ve just stepped out of a fashion fairytale – it’s like a siren’s song luring us into a sea of shopping temptation. 

But here’s the twist: what arrives at your door might resemble what you saw in the ad about as much as flip-flops do to stilettos.

Beware Pop-Up Ads

It’s the classic tale of the bait and switch – the dress that looked like it was spun from dreams turns out to be spun from something that feels like plastic wrap, the color that seemed so alive on your screen is now closer to a distant cousin of its former self, and the fit that was supposed to be tailored perfection ends up making you look more like a makeover before than an after. 

Now, let’s talk about quality – or lack thereof. Remember the promise of a luxurious fabric that caresses your skin like a soft summer breeze? Well, brace yourself for something that might feel more like sandpaper in comparison. 

It’s not uncommon to discover that the “finely crafted” seams are unraveling at the sight of a gentle tug, or that the buttons have decided to take a leap of freedom just when you’re about to head out the door.

Before you get carried away, take a moment to peek behind the curtain – read reviews, and do a little detective work on the brand’s reputation. 

Make sure to share your own stories of successes and letdowns in a review, adding a dash of honesty and clarity to the enchanting mix of online shopping.

If you can hold yourself back, instead of buying from those pop-up ads, try shopping from more traditional retailers and designers. 

I’ve made a few mistakes myself, and don’t want you to do so as well. It was a humbling reminder that not all that glitters online turns out to be gold in reality.

True Story

A  dear friend ordered a wild and wacky outfit for a party and brought his purchase over to my house for me to share his experience with you. HERE it is. 

Note: the reason you can’t see how extreme the blurriness was like we could, is because the iPhone automatically corrected it.

Ladies, it’s time to shop smarter and say goodbye to fashion regrets! Book a Zoom call with me and find out how I’ll find the perfect clothes for YOU.

There must be something in my client’s water, as lately so many of them are sharing jewelry designers they’ve met and want me to meet as well.

NOTE: If you make a purchase on Amy Kanarek, tell her Scarlett sent you.

But, Is It Really On Sale? Shopping Tips

Since I am a personal shopper, who is always looking to save money, I know a deal when I see one and I love to share shopping tips with my clients and subscribers.

I also know when a sale, is anything but a deal.

I love to check out the clothes and shoes in the TJMaxx name brand section, called The Runway. Often TJMaxx has lots of brands that I see when shopping for my clients in stores and online. Occasionally I find a great deal, but mostly enjoy the hunt for hidden treasures in all of the stores’ departments.

Take a look at the price tags on these Giorgio Armani pants, I found on the clearance rack of The Runway department in my local TJMaxx. Do you see what I saw?

Shopping Tips

Shopping Tips

Looks like these $795 pants, marked down to $149.99. What a deal, right?

Now look at the original price tag from the store that had these pants before TJMaxx received them.  That store had reduced them all the way down to $99. And still they didn’t sell? Makes one slightly suspicious, but I digress.

Shopping Tips

Be careful when shopping sales racks, and don’t get taken in by false deals.

“I had an upcoming conference with NO time nor desire to shop for a new wardrobe. I called Scarlett after reading her blog for many months and she saved the day. She came, spent a few hours with me going through my closet and helped me create a series of perfect outfits. The best part, at the conference a colleague complimented me and told me what I was wearing was a great look. Funny thing was, I had everything in my closet all along but had never added the boots, scarf and earrings”. –Cathi Nelson President l APPO

Be sure to click on the video to learn: How To Make Your Waist Look Smaller

We all, well at least 99% of women, yearn for a smaller waistline. Many women are also tired of being frustrated with lackluster results from dieting and exercise. All we want is a smaller waistline, to be a size 6, 5’7″ tall, to have perky breasts, smooth skin, and hair that never needs coloring! Is that really too much to ask for?

Well, apparently it is too much to ask for, but that is where I come in. I know lots of ways to create the illusion of smaller waists and make a woman look taller. However, there is nothing I can do about hair coloring. I am not that kind of stylist!

So watch my video to find out How To Make Your Waist Look Smaller, and learn a few of my styling tips.

How To Make Your Waist Look Smaller

“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 lookbook. I NEVER have to think, “What will I wear today?” I simply consult my lookbook and get dressed. I know I’ve saved time and money using Scarlett’s invaluable service.” Jane Pollak

Clothes Shopping Tips For Women To Stop Wasting Your Money

 Shopping Tips For Women
Shopping Tips For Women

Do all your clothes look the same?

As a savvy and creative personal shopper, I help you save money when shopping for clothes, and you can as well when you follow my shopping tips for women.
Do you find yourself buying the same thing over and over? Are you always buying black pants, even though you already have more than 3 pairs? Another pair of black shoes and/or a handbag?
And really, how many white shirts do any of us really need? If you answered yes, then you are guilty of overspending money on your clothes and as a personal shopper, I can show you how to stop wasting money on clothes you probably don’t need.

  Duplicates in your closet?

If you see duplicates in your closet, then you have spent money on items you really did not need and did not buy the clothes and accessories that would have truly expanded your wardrobe. As a personal shopper, I select clothes for my clients that are unlike what they already own, and will expand their abilities to create more outfits than they ever thought possible.
Many women tend to reach for the clothes they are familiar with when they go shopping. The trouble with that, is they then limit how many new outfits can be created with what they already own.
Next time you hit the stores, resist the urge to buy what you already own, and buy something you don’t!

4 Instant Makeover tips for Spring and Summer

instant makeover tips

Finally, the warmer weather is here, the daffodils are popping up and you too are ready to spring up and out with a new image.

So here are 4 instant makeover tips for you, that you can easily and without any expense, start implementing right now to update your looks.

#1. Wear your top out and not tucked into your waist. This will instantly make you appear thinner and taller and will also take a few years off your look.

#2. Change your hairstyle. Try bangs, change the side you part your hair, pull it back or wear your hair loose. Just try to wear it differently than you usually do, and next time you are due for a cut and or color, let the stylist make a suggestion rather than you telling him or her what you want. Hair grows back, so be open to experimenting a bit, and embrace change for a change.

#3. Don’t wear the same outfit over and over again. Instead of grabbing the same top and bottom that you always do, combine pieces that you normally don’t put together. Try wearing a nicer than ‘everyday’ top with your jeans, to update your look. or wearing another pair of shoes. And when you go shopping, DO NOT buy something you already have. Odds are you already have the black pants and white shirt! Right?

#4. Finally, the easiest and most effective wardrobe change that you can do, is to roll or push up your sleeves. This is one of the most important tips I give my clients, as by utilizing this simple styling tip, you will be amazed at what a difference it will make to your image.

Give all or any of these instant makeover tips a try, and let me know which are your favorite.

Pssst…Overheard In The Dressing Room

“I highly recommend hiring Scarlett! She helped me purge the out-of-date and unattractive clothes from my closet, showed me new ways to wear my existing clothes & accessories to highlight my face and figure, and emailed me almost 50 pictures that evening of all of the outfits she put together. In addition, Scarlett made a list of the items I needed to purchase and can be hired to shop with me to make sure I make the best decisions. No more wasting time and money buying the wrong clothing items. She was a pleasure to work with and I had a great time in the process.” Denise Baliotti

what to wear“Scarlett is a God send. I was wearing the same outfits repeatedly and couldn’t decide how to dress better. Scarlett came to my house and in one session efficiently figured out the colors and style that looked best on me. Than she went to my closet and created coordinated outfits including shoes and jewelry and photographed everything so I have a personal file of outfits I can wear. The wardrobe stylist transformation has been lasting and significant. I have a new sense of myself.”
