Goodwill Style Ambush Makeover – Pam!

We are thrilled to introduce you to Pam!  She is our latest Style Ambush Makeover winner!

Pam’s wardrobe frustrations were varied. We helped her determine where the root of her angst with her closet and outfit options was. Find out how we walked through the process with her, and what the key to a great outfit is!

Like Pam learned from our time together, wearing the right colors really is key to choosing a great outfit; the right colors for your skin tone, the right color combinations, and the right kind of prints can transform what you currently see as your wardrobe options. To learn more about how to wear the right colors, check back on this blog soon for a FREE downloadable worksheet to determine what colors YOU should be wearing!

Ambush Style Makeover – Sally

There seems to be a lot of buzz these days about this thing called a ‘Capsule Wardrobe‘. Apparently it is supposed to make your life infinitely easier. For those of you who have tried to implement this tactic into your wardrobe, you’ll agree it can cause more stress than ease!  
What is a Capsule Wardrobe? This is simply a method of building a wardrobe. Using the right color palate (where everything goes together), a specific number of pieces are added to create limitless looks. Ideally, a ‘Capsule Wardrobe” will have fewer number of clothes, with great number of outfits. 
When our fashion team met Sally, this was her dilemma. She wondered how to create a Capsule Wardrobe and never again worry about what to wear.  Check out this month’s winner of the Goodwill Ambush Style Makeover!
 
Our Head Fashion Guru, Kathy Friend has written several blog posts on this topic you might find helpful.

And HERE she talks about 10 pieces you need for a week long vacation.

Last week, you saw how Joni was able to figure out what her style was with her Ambush Style Makeover. We helped her think about what details in clothing and outfits she likes and matched that theme with her personality.

This is ‘THE’ thing that troubles so many women, and seems to be at the crux of the “I have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear” syndrome. How do you match what you LIKE in outfits, with clothing that really shows who you are? So many times our closet is filled with pieces we really don’t like, or pieces that don’t reflect who we are.

Why does this happen?  Well, I believe it is because as life goes on and changes, our shopping habits don’t change…but our taste in things does (and dare I say our personality changes as we mature). If we always seem to buy black pants and white tops, it’s hard for us to see (let alone try-on) anything but black pants and white tops. Defining WHAT you like is a good step in the right direction in helping you to notice all of the other options when you shop.

Seems easy enough, doesn’t it?  Well to help make it even easier for you, I’m offering a FREE download quiz that will help you FIND YOUR STYLE! Just click HERE to download your printable Style Quiz.

Let us know what YOUR style is!

 
p.s. Remember to take those things out of your closet that aren’t your style and donate them to your local Goodwill Store!

Ambush Style Makeover Winner – Joni!

Personal style is a funny thing. Once we think we have it all figured out, it changes. Why?

According to our Fashion Guru, Kathy Friend – wardrobe stylist and image consultant, it is because we (as women) are always changing! Our personal style is simply an outward look at who we are as individuals. Our clothes tell the story of who we are. As our lives change, our story changes. For so many of us, our story and the image of our story (our clothes) don’t always match.

This is that fork-in-the road our first winner of the Goodwill Ambush Style Makeover found herself. See Joni’s story below, and her amazing style transformation!

Goodwill Ambush Makeover – Rachel

Rachel is a typical 30-something Mom

She has spent so much time over the past few years being a Mom, she’s forgotten what her style is.

She wants to look cute and sassy, but it seems the things she adds to her wardrobe only add to the confusion. Random shopping has caused her to spend a lot of money, and end up with a closet full of clothes she doesn’t like.

We took Rachel through a very simple process of figuring out what her style is, and creating a great outfit at a Michiana Goodwill Storefor a fraction of the price she had been spending on new outfits!

See how we did it here!
