    1) Choose a color and go with a monochromatic scheme, various shades of one color,  instead of trying to have every family member wear the same color, which can be very difficult to do.
    2) Choose a analogous scheme, 3 consecutive colors on the color wheel in different tints or shades to create more interest.
    3) Choose a complimentary scheme, direct opposites on the color wheel, this is the safe way to choose the perfect color combination.

    Graphic Prints

     

    Color Block

     
    “Spring it On!” this season with vibrant colored botanicals, graphic prints, and color blocking.
     
    TIPS:
    1) Keep in mind your stature when choosing a garment with a print. You want to wear the print, not the print wear you.
    2) Try wearing color or a print, especially if you do not have any or very little in your existing wardrobe. Add some sunshine to your life! It will make you grow!
    3) What you wear is a representation of how you feel about yourself and what you want the world to know about you. What do your clothes say about you? This season spread some color and brighten up the world…….your world!

    Winter Coats


    Coat Check

    Winter is here and we seem to have completely skipped Fall!  You need a fabulous coat to start the season in style!  You will not go wrong with any combination of the options listed below.

    Coat Check List

    Winter Boots


    Another Part of Me

    Shoes are an extension of you.  They allow you to be nice or naughty, serious or playful, easy or complicated, open or closed, calm or turned up!  This winter let your boots spark the conversation.  It’s up to you to figure out what you want them to say!

    Winter Hats


    The Way She Wears It

    When a woman walks out in a brim you can’t help but notice her……the way it may tilt to one side with ease and attitude.   How mysterious she appears because you can’t see her eyes due to a wide brim.  You can’t help but wonder, who is she???  What you do know for sure is…….”she is wearing that hat.”

    Winter Sweaters


    Let it Snow

    So the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful and since there are places to go wear an oversize sweater in the cold!  Try an oversize sweater with leggings and booties hanging out with friends.  A slouchy deep v sweater worn on or off the shoulders with a boyfriend jean and heels is super sexy for day or evening.  Last but not least, try a cable knit with a short or mid length skirt, tights, and booties for play or work.  Stay warm!

    Hair Talk


    Hair color can brighten up your complexion, make your eyes stand out, and can take years off of your life……in just a few hours!  To go along with the right hair color you need the right hairstyle.  Your hairstyle should frame your face, express your personality, and should ALWAYS remain current to this day and time.

    Change Frames


    Think of your glasses as another accessory to go along with your outfit.  Choose a frame with an interesting color that complements your skin tone and adds balance to the shape of your face.  You also can purchase multiple frames so that you can have a collection to choose from based on your mood and outfit for the day.

    Brow Beat


    Perfect brows are an instant face lift.  They open up and soften your face.  If you do not have any brows, seek out the best Brow Expert to create natural looking brows.  If you do not have brows because you shave them off………STOP, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW AND I AM READING YOU YOUR RIGHTS!  You have the right to put down the tool you have selected to shave your brows off.  You have the right to seek out a professional MUA (make-up artist) or Brow Expert to get immediate counsel.
