Oprah has stated in her bra revolution series that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra. In my own personal styling experiences, I would confidently state that every single woman I have dressed over a span of 20 years has been wearing the wrong bra size. Why do women wear the wrong bra? Your bra becomes that piece that you put on with an autopilot motion and it  stays in your drawer for years without a thought of updating. Young and old, slim or curvy, every single woman needs to go for a professional fitting every six months to ensure that you are wearing the right size and that you have proper coverage. Why do you need a new bra? It is one of  the most important foundation pieces to your wardrobe and you will instantly look better in your clothing. I have seen tears shed once women experience a proper fitting bra, it is life altering in the best way. There are few areas of your wardrobe that you really need to invest and undergarments should be where your start.


Where to begin. I recommend heading to Nordstrom or to Soma Intimates where the experts can measure and direct you to the right brand for your body. Begin building your bra wardrobe with a wear with everything nude, seamless bra that looks best under a simple white tee and beyond. Next, I would add a smooth, seamless black and then have some fun with something sexy and textured for those fun, evening outfits.

Next on your list is a body smoother, a must have for under all skirts and dresses. It will smooth and shape your belly and thighs giving you an instant boost of confidence. My favorites come from Assets, made by Spanx and found at Target, I recommend one in nude for under your lighter fabrics and one black for your darker bottoms. You will find a new found confidence when you smooth out your bottom half!


Begin your day putting on the best undergarments and I promise you will love your look.

Yours in style,

What is on your mind this month? Most likely, you are consciously reviewing what you eat, how much you exercise and how you look.  The start of a new year, and a new DECADE, brings with it a renewed mindset of  self-improvement, self-enhancement and self – acceptance.  I have heard 2010 referred to as the decade of the individualist!  My interpretation of this statement reminds me of the airplane analogy.  When the oxygen mask is released,  take care of yourself first. In daily life  be happy, feel confident,  BE YOUR BEST SELF every day and everyone around you will benefit and become better themselves. You will inspire and motivate, respect yourself first and the respect of others will naturally follow.  I ask you, reading this blog to look in the mirror today and smile! Select a feature or features about yourself that you LOVE (and you should LOVE several) focus on the positive and accept your natural beauty TODAY!  Congratulations, you have now begun the process of  embracing self-respect.  There is ONLY ONE OF YOU! Accept, be proud and OWN every bit of who you are inside and out. It is the only way to become the person you want to become.  Now, lets talk about STYLE and how to present your best self ! My personal favorite part of this process !

I want you all to also recognize that having GREAT STYLE doesn’t have to cost alot of money. Here are a few tips on how to begin styling your body and instantly feeling more confident.

  • Begin choosing color when looking a buying new tops and jackets. We can all relate to a time when we have received compliments based on the color we chose to wear that day.  If you LOVE your eyes, start selecting tops that flatter the color of your eyes, it adds an instant boost to your outfit.


  • Buy clothing that fits and flatters and isnt boxy in shape.  Choose styles of clothing that frame the body – that create an hourglass figure, regardless of your current shape. Buying clothing that is too big only makes you look bigger. STOP HIDING!


  • Take pride in yourself when you get dressed every morning. Wear those jeans that you feel great in, add an accessory that polishes your casual outfit, add a fun purse and feel good about who you ARE, YOU DESERVE TO !


Savers, a chain of thrift stores! They are a national chain with stores across the U.S. and Canada. They offer an amazing assortment of quality clothing at an AMAZING PRICE.  I admire and respect the neat and orderly conditions of the store, the friendly staff and the ENDLESS SELECTION of designer merchandise!  They also partner with charitable organizations across the country. It is truly a fashion treasure hunt. If you want to begin re-inventing your look or you simply want to add some new, fun and flattering pieces to your wardrobe, make this a new weekly habit! Stop in to your local Savers and see what is in store for you.  I recently spoke to a customer who shopped in the newest store in Orange, CT. She came back twice in one day and said the shopping experience at Savers was better than you know what ? HA

Here are some pictures that I took visiting the new store in Orange. You can see, I had a blast building outfits and dressing the shoppers.   HAPPY SHOPPING !
