Tip of the Week: Read “Nothing to Wear” by Nicola Cupples

Nothing to Wear
If you’re like me and have lots of clothes but nothing to wear, this book is definitely for you! Here’s why I love “Nothing to Wear” by Nicola Cupples:

  • It helps you understand the psychological factors of your style and shopping habits.
  • It teaches you how to work with your body shape (yes, there’s a tall section!).
  • It gives you simple, tactical guidelines for constructing outfits that are comfortable AND stylish (I didn’t know this was possible!).

[spacer size=”20″]Overall, this book not only left me with solid tips for improving my image but also gave me the confidence to explore, experiment and have fun with my wardrobe. I highly recommend it! Get it on your Kindle here.

I don’t always feel as feminine as I’d like because of my height. I’ve discovered though, that you don’t need to wear excessive make-up, pile on the accessories, or flaunt a shorter skirt to look and feel more feminine. To look more feminine, just be subtle and elegant. A few smart pieces can go a long way.

I tend to avoid piling on the jewelry. If you look through my posts, you’ll see that my signature style for bracelets is very minimalistic!

Readers: Do you like to pile on the jewelry or do you feel comfortable wearing only a few key pieces?

Tip of the Week: Try ‘Really Red’ by Essie

A true, classic red nail polish like Essie’s Really Red is a great way to instantly add drama and sophistication to any outfit. It’s the perfect pop of color without looking too crazy.

I try to explore other colors, but I always find myself coming back to Essie’s Really Red! If you’re looking for a truly rich red color, look no further. The name says it all!
