Not Everything Is As It “Seams”: Rule #1 Try Everything On!

» Posted by on Aug 24, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments



This week one of my client tasks was to create a kicky little outfit for a fun event at a barn…While I’d pulled several viable options, I created this little number from the pieces I’d pulled and was absolutely in love with the vision of how it would be!

It was just right:

*The signature color of the event…an a-mazing color for the gal.

*Lightweight fabric, casual and flirty….Was going to pair it back to cowgirl boots, and add a fabulous necklace.

*Found the right statement belt to swap for the fabric one….and alas!  The “perfect” denim jacket to top it off!  Had just the right amount of feminine detail, right?




The jacket was overwhelming (think this line is doing some vanity sizing in this go around…) and because of the actual construction of the dress- once on, it too was overwhelming in volume….everywhere!


What Can We Learn?

*Always try everything on.

*Note that even while an outfit or ensemble looks great in a magazine or catalog, and it has the general line design for your frame, it might not translate that well to your individual shape.

*Don’t be discouraged – and don’t settle for anything less than an “8” on a scale of 1-10.  Just quickly keep trying the other options you’ve selected and ROCK the WINNER!…..That’s exactly what my gal did.

She looks absolutely stylish, pulled together, confident, and…..super fun to boot!  We created the same delicious look with the other pieces that I’d pre-shopped before her arrival.

Ladies and gent, it’s worth the investment to “know” what you really want, create your vision, and take action to bring that vision to reality. Whether it be in style, in your relationships, or in what’s next in your life…..refer back to rule #1, try everything on!  Not everything may be as it seems, but then you get to make mid course adjustments and obtain what you really want!

Here’s to you, get after it!
