From Rebecca

 

I want to introduce you to the newest member of our team -

Emily Curry!!!

We are really excited to bring on another fashionista to help us spread the wisdom of cleaning out, shopping and dressing our clients.  She lives in Conroe and will eventually take care of our northern customers.  She will accompany me on many of my appointments to get trained and ready.

 

I am making some big changes in my life.  In order to bring some sanity back to my household, I will be working only 3 days a week and am raising my fee to $125.00/hour.  Emily Elliott has agreed to step up and take on more client appointments to allow me to make these changes in my life.  Her rate will be $100.00/hour.  Emily Curry will be immersed in training with me for a bit longer and I will keep you posted on when she will be ready to take on clients.

 

I hope that you all will embrace Emily Elliott as a trusted member of my team and welcome her into your closets and wardrobes.  She has been with me now for 2 years and is very capable of handling all of your clothing needs. 

Emily Elliott's Top 5

 

1.  I love sending a great card to friends...check out uncookedland.com for some hilarious options.  I have seen a good selection at Francesca's and Whole Earth.

 

 

coat2.  I noticed a HUGE problem this holiday season...women do not match "dress up" clothes with a "dress up" jacket.  I was disappointed to see folks at The Nutcracker dressed to the nines with dresses and pairing them with a fleece or casual jacket.  Get out this month and "invest in" or find a "deal" on a dressy jacket.  This cute jacket is by Ellen Tracy at Nordstrom on sale for $179.90.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.  Next Designer Collaboration for Target is Jason Wu!  This should be WONDERFUL!  Get in stores or online early.  We all learned from the Missoni Madness that these Collections sell through VERY quickly.  Items will be available February 5, 2012.

4.  Need to spice up your evening make-up look?  I LOVE the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Eye Shimmer!  Easy to apply with your finger over your "regular" eye look.  It adds just the pop you need to take your look from day to evening!

 

 

5.  I spent a week in NYC over the holidays and LOVED catching The Museum of FIT special exhibit on Daphne Guinness.  What an amazing collection of couture looks...truly breathtaking!  Every six months, a changing selection of garments, accessories and textiles from the Museum's permanent collection is put on display in the Fashion and Textile History Gallery. Don't miss it on your next trip!  For more information check out fitnyc.edu/museum.

What you can do this month to change your look...

 

Give Those Old Bras The Boot!

  

            Just by browsing the store aisles, one thing can be noted.  Low selection!  Most of the clothes are picked over, and there probably won't be any new inventory until Mid February.  The stores are in transition mode from Fall/Winter to "resort wear." This includes swimsuits and vacation clothes to wear on a cruise or on the beach.  Not ready for swimsuits? We have the solution!  Let's focus on something that is very important and sometimes overlooked: our unmentionables!  When was the last time you had a professional bra fitting or cleaned out your undergarments? 

             Research states that 80% of women wear the wrong bra size.  Having the correct bra is a big key in your overall look, and it has been found that the lifespan of a bra is only 5-6 months.  Many stores, including Intimacy (Galleria), La Mode Lingerie (West Gray), Soma, and many Department Stores, provide fittings free of charge.  Let's take advantage of this service, get our shape back, and feel better about ourselves!
