How often do you wonder WHAT TO WEAR?  When you look at your closet, do you feel like nothing in your wardrobe matches the REAL you?

You are not alone.

Did you check out Christi’s  Style Makeover? Christi is in the middle of reinventing herself. Part of that is thinking about WHO she is on the inside, and matching that to who she is showing the world she is on the outside. After talking with Christi, we determined her current style wasn’t delivering the right message about her personality.

What is YOUR style saying about you? Wonder if the clothing you wear matches your personality, goals and perceived image? Take THIS QUIZ to see if it might be time for a Style Makeover!

Goodwill Style Makeover – Christi

This month’s Style Makeover winner is Christi. Christi is a mom to a college-aged daughter. Like most moms with adult children, she found herself wondering who she was and felt ready to reinvent herself. We helped her define her fashion style to match who she is on the inside.

For some tips on how you can start to match who you are on the inside with the clothing you are wearing on the outside, check back in a few weeks!  I’ll post a FREE DOWNLOAD tool to help you determine YOUR personal style!

How to Dress when you are Expecting!

In our last Style Makeover, you met Lisa. She was wondering what to wear during the holidays…and she is pregnant! In the blog post, I promised to give you some tips on how to Dress when you are Expecting.

Some things to keep in mind: 


Know when something doesn’t fit – there will come a time (probably in the first trimester) when you will need to admit your “regular” clothes just aren’t working. If something becomes uncomfortable, don’t force yourself to wear it.
Stick with What you like – You know YOUR style, don’t try to become someone else just because you are pregnant. Embrace YOUR PERSONAL style…as a beautiful expectant mommy!
Look for fabrics like Lycra and jersey – anything that is stretchy is your new best friend. Avoid things like satin or heavy fabrics.
Opt for muted colors – being mindful of your best colors and sticking to muted neutrals is a good idea, especially during that first trimester.
Keep prints simple – prints can be tricky for mommys-to-be. Prints tend to bring attention to various areas of your silhouette – a smaller simple print is a safe option.
Invest in a few key pieces – no one wants to spend a ton of money on a wardrobe you will only wear for 6-8 months. If you invest in a few key pieces, you will be able to create many different looks while looking stylist and being comfortable. 

    • Good denim – base your wardrobe around a great pair of maternity jeans. Look for something in a straight leg or boot cut in a dark wash color
    • A stylish wrap dress- this is something that you will be able to wear at all the phases of pregnancy. Pair with boots in cooler months, and then transition to flip flops for warmer days. Layer over tank tops and under sweaters.

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!
