I realize the irony of announcing a “holiday break” when it’s already been several weeks since my last blog post. Of course you are probably aware that blogging is not my business, but rather a fun way to share extra tidbits with my clients and readers. I so appreciate you tuning in week after week to see what I have to say here. As much as I enjoy blog writing, I need to step back and evaluate if it’s the best way to spend my time. I’m not sure if it’s been a supplement to my actual business of image consulting, or if it’s functioning as more of a distraction. I’d rather take time away from the Internet for now and devote it to connecting one-on-one with my clients. I’ll most likely be back in the New Year to post now and again, but in the meantime I’m planning to enjoy a nice, long holiday break from the blog.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to e-mail me. I will still be taking on image consulting work, so that is definitely not coming to a halt. I just want to forewarn you that there will not be regular posts here for a bit. I hope you understand and will let me know if you need anything in the meantime. I’m always happy to hear from you!
Please also take time out from your busy life to truly enjoy the holidays, connect with your loved ones, be thankful for your blessings, and give a little extra consideration to those in need. As always, thanks for reading. ♥
They’re baaaack! I know, I need to quit with the Halloween references. Although, in my defense, our state’s trick-or-treating has been postponed until tomorrow. So, I’m still hanging on to the final shreds of my favorite holiday. Here are a few other hot looks that refuse to quit. If you haven’t already picked up any of these key trends, it’s not too late! Some of past season’s favorites were back on the runways and will surely fit in well with your fall/winter wardrobe.

Head-to-toe prints were one of the most prominent prowlers on the fall ready-to-wear catwalks. Designers used bold stripes, geometric patterns, and had some fun mixing and matching. While you might think, at first glance, that these looks are too busy for you, there are an endless variety of ways that you can work pattern into your wardrobe this season. Use common sense (like remembering that horizontal stripes will widen your appearance) and choose prints that flatter both the curvature or angularity of your features as well as your overall taste and style. Here are a few examples of how you might work prints into your personal style:
Have some fun playing around with patterns! They’re a great way to express yourself and spice up your wardrobe. And be sure to check back sometime this weekend for a not-so-surprise bonus post! You might have thought this was the last of fall’s looks, but I still have a few more tips to come. Happy Friday!
