Red, White and Blue…A Look that’s all YOU!

Red, White and Blue…A Look that’s all YOU!

Celebrating freedom in this country came at a price – I like to remember and appreciate…as I know you probably do as well. Knowing that all worthy causes and achievements come at a price, it inspires me to press on ~ to a high calling – to live out my passion, to go for dreams that I don’t see the probability of coming true, to swim againgst the currents, and to stretch to become better, bolder, and braver. I rest more on faith and possibilities than calculations. I guess it’s because of that, that I feel comfortable making a statement as opposed to blending in. Some people are more comfortable being neutral and yet some have colorful styles waiting to be exposed, they simply don’t know how to pull it all together for knockout class. Here’s a secret: You don’t always have to be classy to look like a class act! There’s help…that’s why there’s coaches of all sorts today – even the professional athletes hire a speciality coach to help them perfect their skills. How about you? Do you think a “tweak to get you more chic” would benefit? If so, fill out the form HERE and get more information about my summer/fall classes and image coaching services.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA – thanks for those that served…including my father in the army for 20 years! God bless our freedom to use our time, talents, resources and speech to honor Him!

ps ~ I love the blue polka dot shoes below – how about you?

That doesn’t mean you can’t look classy and stunning too, however.

Here are some basic guidelines to help you make the right decision:

  • Do wear floral prints, pastels, or festive colors. Read more »

Man, You’re the Best!

Are you a businessman that networks with others? A speaker, whose success depends on making a fast and fabulous connection with your audience?

A Mother’s Reflection… in my own words

Happy Mother’s Day…Happy Valentine’s Day…Happy Father’s Day…Happy? Really? NOT if you aren’t married, in a loving relationship, or a parent!
