Outfit for a Dinner OutJuly 18th, 2014

"Dinner out" by Dulcet Style Image Consultants

Inspiration Outfit

A perfect outfit combination for a stylish dinner out.  Simply choose a feminine blouse and belt it with a thin leather belt.  Straight leg jeans lend sophistication while glints of gold on your bracelet and clutch add sparkle.  Finish the look with a pair of leopard print flats and you are ready for a night out.

An Instant Boost For Your HairJune 20th, 2014

Loving blonde...do it? Now or never before I'm seriously way too old.Need a little boost for your hair?  Maybe some piecey texture? Or how about making your hair last another day between washings? The product that can give you results in all three of these areas is a good dry shampoo.  I love to suggest this product to my clients who have thin or fine hair because of the instant lift your roots receive when you spray it on.  And it really works miracles for anyone who has oily hair and does not want to wash it every day. The best way to use dry shampoo for either of these two Klorane Extra-Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk - 1.06 fl ozreasons, is to first to divide hair at the spot you want lift or want the oil masked and spray at the roots.  Let it sit for a few minutes and then rub it in with your fingers.  If you are just looking for some piecey texture, you can not only apply to your roots but spray a little all over and piece out your hair with your hands. A really good brand of dry shampoo is Klorane, my personal favorite.  You can find out more about their products at kloraneusa.com.

Fresh Ideas For SuitingMay 27th, 2014

Ellen Tracy Faux-Leather-Sleeve Cardigan & Slim Pencil Skirt - Suits & Suit Separates - Women - Macy'sSuiting doesn’t have to be an ultra-formal matching skirt and blazer set.   Instead, try a chic cropped blazer with an untucked shirt to create length, paired with a pencil skirt.  Or swap out your standard pearls and pendants for a daring colorful necklace to add just the right “pop” to your outfit.  A mix of shades in one hue in your jacket, bottoms and shirt will create a modern flair.  Tired of your basic jacket?  Change it up with a soft knit cardigan instead of your matching blazer.  Add appeal to your ensemble with flattering nude heels.  The ideas are endless when it comes to creating streamlined coordinated outfits that will step up your predictable office suits.  Find this perfect combo of Ellen Tracy cardi and skirt at Macys.

Perfect Side Swept BangsMay 8th, 2014

ElnettDo you ever wonder how celebrities keep their long bangs perfectly swept to the side, out of their face?  The key is to comb forward a full chunk of bangs so it doesn’t look sparse and straight iron it in a forward motion, then separate your bangs at the part of and pull it to the side, finish by spraying with a quality hairspray.  Keep in mind, you can cake your bangs with hairspray and they won’t stay in place if you don’t apply it where it is needed most.  The best strategy is to spray the underside of the bangs.  Simply lift them up, or tilt your head forward so you can spray the hair from the backside.  Then finish off with a coat on the outside.  We suggest using a super hold hair spray to really keep them in place; a great choice is L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray, which can be found almost anywhere and at Ulta.com.  It is my personal favorite!

Maxi Skirts Done RightApril 24th, 2014

Cute maxi skirt outfitThe maxi-skirt is the skirt of the season.  Floor grazing and low-key it is the skirt of choice for lazy weekend window shopping or lunch with the girls.  It has a casual “I just threw this on with no thought and look incredibly cute” vibe.  But carrying it off can be another story.

I am forever pulling long skirts from my clients closets and putting them into the consign or alter piles, and this is because the piece is not truly a maxi-skirt.  And if it is a maxi-skirt, I always leave them with some direction on how they can pull off this skirt style.

Unless you are very tall, it is a garment that will shorten your silhouette, which is not so great for the average height woman and very bad for the petite woman.  So if you fall into one of those two categories, you must give yourself some needed height and pair some platforms or stacked heel sandals with the skirt.  You can go a little flowy with the top, but beware of too slouchy.  With a full skirt like this you may create a very sloppy look.  It is best to pair with a more fitted garment, like a thin knit t-shirt.  Adding a scarf or a long necklace creates boho-chic appeal, which is the main attraction of the maxi-skirt.
