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.” –

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.

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.

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.

NOT!

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.

How To Avoid A Wardrobe Malfunction

How To Avoid A Wardrobe Malfunction

The best stories come from either my clients or the women who want to work with me.

I’ll share one with you a few sentences from here, but first…

We’ve all had the experience of something in our outfit either busting open or barely
fitting properly, and one way to avoid wearing an outfit that will make you very uncomfortable is to sit it out.

Yup, I mean sit down.

I encourage you to sit down when you put an outfit on or try on a new piece of clothing.

If…

  • You feel constricted, hear a strain, or a pop, don’t wear it, and definitely don’t buy it.
  • It is uncomfortable, don’t wear it, and definitely don’t buy it.
  • You tell yourself you’ll lose weight first, don’t wear it, and definitely don’t buy it. 
  • You can’t sit down without feeling miserable or potentially embarrassed,
    don’t wear it, and definitely don’t buy it.

So, here’s the story from a woman I spoke to this week, who wants my help getting her
closet filled with outfits that will fit, and flatter her.

All she simply wants and will get, are clothes that she can’t wait to wear. Sound familiar?

She wants to replace the mistakes hanging in her closet and showed me one of
her expensive examples.

It was a very pretty 3-piece pant set that a salesperson talked her into buying
for her daughter’s wedding a couple of years ago.

The jacket and pants were nice, but the sleeveless tank was much shorter than what I would have picked out for her. It simply wasn’t long enough to fully cover her stomach.

The tailor she took the outfit too, offered a solution. He would add snaps to connect the tank to her pants. 🤔

That looked great when she was standing, but at the wedding and reception, she was seated.

So what do you think happened when she sat?

Yes, you guessed it…SNAP, SNAP, SNAP!

But, if she had done the sit test, or, even better, had known me back a few years, she would never

have been so self-conscious and uncomfortable on such an important day in her and her daughter’s life.

Take a seat when trying on outfits, and you will know how to avoid a wardrobe malfunction that will ruin your day or night.

I’ve never heard of attaching snaps from a top to a pair of pants, and for good reason. It’s a VERY bad idea.

PS. If you find yourself standing in your PJs each morning, staring into your closet hoping that today’s the day you’ll find an outfit that fits you perfectly…stay tuned for a new and quick way to have a closet full of clothes that makes you confidently happy and stylish!

Why Your Clothes Don’t Fit.

This tiny detail is one of the many reasons why your clothes don’t fit and why you might not have any idea why something is wrong with your outfit, but you can’t quite put your finger on it.

Take a look at my video on YouTube and see what’s in your closet that fits this common fit problem.

Until you can identify all the different styling details, and there are a lot, you will always wonder why your clothes don’t fit the way you think they should.

Pay attention to details in the clothes you wear and buy, and you’ll end up saving money and walking into a room looking and feeling confident, instead of feeling like you can’t quite get it right.

Here’s how I can show you how to be the best-dressed woman in any room, because YOU deserve to love how you look!
