Summer Accessories Trunk Show 
Saturday and Sunday,
July 27-28!


savvy chic boutique   
We just saw some of the great items we'll be receiving for our Summer Trunk Show - great swimsuit cover-ups and, of course, jewelry and handbags.  
 
I'll send you an invitation in a few weeks, but if you can plan now to carve out a little time to stop by (no appointment necessary) you can take advantage of our offer to anyone who attends the Show: a free mini-make-up-makeover!  I know I'm always looking for ways to tweak my make-up (doesn't every woman?)  
 
We've got make-up pro, Carrie LaShell, on hand to show us just how to do it. We'd love to see you....and if you think some of your friends would enjoy it as well, read on...

Book a private shopping/make-up event for you and some of your BFF's! We will take appointments for July 25, so let me know right away if this is something you'd like to schedule. We'll provide the champagne and hors d'ouevres!

Make it a fun girl's nite out!  jewelry, make-up & bubbly...sounds like a winning combination to me!

how to achieve poolside confidence...

as i was thinking of my title for this monthly newsletter...i had to laugh...because poolside & confidence are usually not the 2 words i would put together in one sentence...at least not for me...but there are tips and tricks you can apply to help boost your confidence - and ultimately accept all those invitations for pool parties...beach outings & fun-filled days...

with my own girl's trip looming ahead...i knew that i needed a new bathing suit...and if i was being completely honest...i was not looking forward to shopping for this one item...hitting the big 50...the extra lbs that i had accumulated...left me wanting to do anything but shop for a bathing suit...the flip side of course...is vacation & time spent with friends far outweighed my "issues"...

so i did what i tell my clients to do...in fact...this was one of my facebook status updates this week...

"swimsuit shopping alone can be intimidating...take a trusted friend with you or better yet...hire a stylist...make it easier on yourself..."
 
so i did just that...i brought my very good friend margaret with me...i knew she would be honest...and kind...at the same time...and voila...i walked away with a brand new bathing suit...that i feel quite wonderful in...who would have thought? =)  (thanks margaret!  you were a gem!) 
 
so...here are the tips i used to help me in achieving my goal...and which should help you in finding your poolside confidence...
 
pick a color/pattern scheme - starting in your closet!  look at your clothes...notice the colors...the prints...what are the things that you wear most?  what are the colors & prints that you feel good in?  which ones do you get compliments in?  these should be the same colors & prints that you look for in your bathing suit.

try different styles - just as in your clothing shopping - experiment with new styles...you may just be surprised how a new style may be the ticket for you!  i had always opted for one piece bathing suits...but decided to try some tankinis as well...i was pleasantly surprised that i felt so comfortable in a new style - i would not have known that had i not tried it...

shop in the right department - bathing suits are made just like our clothing...bathing suits in the junior department...well...just stay away from them and save yourself the heartache!

complete the outfit - don't stop at the bathing suit - think about your cover up, shoes, sunglasses, beach bag etc...there is something about feeling & looking put together that gives us that boost of confidence...make sure all the pieces relate and harmonize with each other...

here are some ideas for cover ups from previous blog posts:



still scared?  let me help you select a flattering bathing suit and accessorize it...i'd love to help you create your best poolside outfits so you can feel confident!

while we are talking about summer & swimsuits...the truth is...the stores are filling up their inventory with fall fashion...

 

so whether you are looking to get some great buys with the fabulous sales that are on...or ready to beef up your fall wardrobe - the rules remain the same...buy only what you love...what flatters you...and fits your current lifestyle & body...i am hear to help...call or email me to set-up your appointment...let's do this together...i am here to help!

 

all my best!
