Are you sitting there thinking that you  -OWN -the wardrobe, but not sure -WHERE- everything has gone, or -HOW- to piece the clothes you own together?

Let me come to you for your very own ‘Closet Edit’, and we can work through some of the most common wardrobing dilemma’s together!


It may sound odd but some of my biggest fans are men. It’s because I’ve helped the women in their lives feel fantastic about the way they look. This in turn is the greatest gift for a man!
“Honey, how do I look?” is a question no man wants to hear. There’s no good answer.  And if the answer starts with a bit of a pause it doesn’t matter what he says, you’re going to change clothes. It’s a lose-lose situation for the man in your life, and unnecessary frustration for you.

In honor of Father’s Day I want to make it really easy to give your man the gift he really wants…

YOU feeling confident about the way you look.

Feeling confident about the way you look means no more…

  • Wondering if what you’re wearing really looks good.
  • Changing clothes three times before leaving the house.
  • Running late because you don’t know what to wear.

Yes, it might seem odd to treat yourself in honor of Father’s Day but I know that when you feel fantastic it affects everyone around you in amazing ways. I’ve been contacted by so many husbands thanking me for making getting dressed so much easier and fun for their wives.
In honor of all the amazing Dads (and men) out there, I’m going to help make getting dressed super easy for you. Until Sunday at midnight, my Virtual Style Consultation is available to you for only $47. (That’s more than half off the regular price of $99!!)
That’s the cost of buying one shirt that you never end up wearing, or just never looks right. Kick that habit to the curb and discover how to achieve style you really love. I guarantee it’s easier than you think!
Don’t wait, get your Virtual Style Consultation. Use coupon code FATHER to get your fabulous Father’s Day deal! Hurry, you’ve only got until Sunday!
Not sure if a Virtual Style Consultation is right for you? Don’t hesitate to contact me at and we’ll discuss what’s best for you.
Here’s to your style,
PS. Check out the rave reviews from some of my clients’ husbands.

“Ever since my wife’s closet edit she has been much happier about her clothing.  Buying clothes was always a source of frustration for her.  Since her edit she has come back from her shopping trips smiling and showing off her clothes; a major improvement.  I have noticed a dramatic difference in my wife’s appearance since her closet makeover.  I feel like she has always dressed as if she is much older than she really is.  Her new clothes are more colorful and fun, making her appear younger and more vibrant.  Not only do I think my wife’s outfits are significantly improved, she does as well.  Her attitude towards her new look has been really refreshing. It is great to see her so happy about her clothing.”

– Michael Broadway – Mt. Pleasant, SC

I truly benefited from the closet edit I gave my wife with Lee.  Our closet has never been so organized and enjoyable.  The style advice you gave my wife has increased her confidence and saved me money!  Thank you for all of your help.”

– Andy Johnston – Chapel Hill, NC

 Things are definitely different around my house since having a child. I am no longer the first one to read my Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. As you can see from the picture I’ve got some competition. And I find myself at home on a lot more Saturday nights.
Last Saturday I was ecstatic to finally have time to edit my own closet. I gave away two bags of clothes that no longer worked for me. It wasn’t because they were out of style or didn’t fit; they just no longer helped me create the style I want.
I share this with you because sometimes the thought of going through your closet and getting rid of things causes feelings of guilt and overwhelm. There’s no shame or wastefulness in getting rid of clothing that isn’t currently serving you. You can donate or even consign your clothes and let someone else enjoy what no longer works for you.
Spring is around the corner and it’s a great time to reflect on whether or not the clothes in your closet are the ones for you. It’s actually a very easy process. All you need to know are the four closet edit questions.

The FOUR Closet Edit Questions

These four simple questions make going through your closet a simple and easy process. The key is to be honest and disciplined about what you want. Hold up an item in your closet and ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do I LOVE it?
  2. Is it flattering?
  3. Does it help me achieve the style I want?
  4. Have I worn it recently?

If you don’t answer “YES!” for each question you know that particular item isn’t working for you. Consider donating it, consigning it, or working with a stylist to find out to make an item something you love to wear.

Let’s talk about brows, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. I started plucking my brows in college, a late-bloomer you might say. What a difference a good brow makes. I’ve since moved up to waxing and threading with the occasional pluck. And I ALWAYS fill them in.

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of making up models for a fashion show benefiting colon cancer research. I got to work on lots of women, lots of different sorts of women; old, young, all colors, and each in a different state of health. What did I notice (or reaffirm, as it were): brows matter.
Blah, blah, blah they frame the face. It’s true! When properly groomed, brows draw attention to the best parts of the face. They can bring out your eye color; visually lift your eyes (taking away years!), make you look fresher, healthier and well kept. It also makes the application of makeup easier.
But folks, here’s the thing, removing unwanted hairs is only half the battle. The important aspect of brows is in filling in what nature has left us without. Filling in the gaps, patches or the whole kit-n-caboodle. A powder (like Clinique’s Brow Shaper) is great for covering a lot of real estate or if you want a very soft, natural look. A pencil (I love YSL’s and Lancome’s especially for blondes) is going to give you a much more defined look and can come across too harsh if not applied very delicately. My favorite brow product of all? Laura Mercier’s Brow Definer. It’s a waxy cream; softer than a pencil, more defined than a powder, and idiot proof. You use a synthetic, angled brush to apply it and it is gorgeous.
A few final notes to remember: brows should be a couple (two) shades darker than your hair color.
Your hair stylist can color them for you; I highly recommend this for people with hair color that is significantly different from brow color or if you are lacking brows all together.
Remember that your brows are sisters, not twins.

Q. Why am I getting black stuff under the eye even when I’m not wearing eye liner or mascara on the bottom?
A. Black stuff under the eye (when unintended) is annoying. In fact, it ranks right up there in the top most annoying things having to do with makeup. Black stuff under the eye can be caused by several things.

You are not wearing eyeliner on the bottom (yay! brightens the eye, keeping us more fresh looking) and you don’t wear mascara on the bottom, so that means your upstairs eye makeup is falling.
Put on your your moisturizer, then your eye cream and you let them both soak in. A primer might help at this step, it locks in the moisturizers and gives the makeup something to stick to. I love Benifit’s “that gal” brightening face primer. You put primer wherever you are going to put any foundation or concealer. 

Your foundation, goes on first then your concealer, and blend, and blend. What I recommend at this point is taking a fluffy ponytail brush  and dust on the slightest little bit of translucent powder or secret brightening powder by Laura Mercier, right under your lower lash line, but NOT any farther (one wouldn’t want the powder to settle into any, ah-hem, fine lines). This will help keep your eyes smudge free. You can also use the powder on chin, nose and forehead to reduce shine.

Make sure your upstairs mascara is fresh; old crusty mascara will start to flake and small flakes will end up on your lower lid and start the smudgy sludge. No one wants that. Mascara should be used no longer than three months. 

Okay, not to sound like your mom but…. Don’t touch your face! Hands down, face touching is the worst thing ever for makeup! Your eyes will smudge your cheeks will disappear, your pimples will reappear. Hands must stay below the jaw.  It’ll keep you stay healthier too. If you’re not touching your face you can’t bring the germs from your hands up to your nose, mouth and eyes. 
Lastly, you just have to make a point to take a look in the mirror every couple of hours or so and clean the area up, even if the above tricks work. Keep in mind that makeup is not an art that remains beautiful without attention all day.
Generally speaking, the skin turns over new cells on the face every four hours. That means by the end of every four hour period your makeup needs attention. It’s a good idea to check your face to check for other things anyway (eye boogers, cave dwellers, spinach in teeth etc.)

I hope this helps. Remember: primer, foundation, conceal, light powder, no touching!

girl-shopping1Even the best shoppers have occasional slip ups. To get the most out of the items you buy, you need to properly integrate them into your existing wardrobe. It’s not uncommon to find wardrobe pieces that have been hanging in the closet for months with the tags still on. Even for the most disciplined shopper there are steps you should take after you complete your shopping. When you return home from shopping get the most out of what you buy with these simple tricks.


1. Try on everything you buy again. Make sure you can still answer yes to all of your shopping guidelines once you are at home. If you bought shoes, give them a practice run. Wear them around the house to ensure they are as comfortable as they felt in the store.


2. Save and keep your receipts in one place. This way if you need to return something you can get a full refund. Just as a precaution, leave the tags on until you actually wear something out of the house.


3. Create a new items section within your closet. As you wear each new item, integrate it into the proper wardrobe section of your closet.


4. Assess your new items section every 30 days. If an item is still in the new section after an extended time period, you may consider returning it for a refund or a more useful item.


5. Schedule a time to play dress up in your closet. Come up with outfits you’ve never worn. Take pictures of outfits you create to reference on days you are lacking dressing brain power.

Great clothes with visible panty lines are like makeup on neglected skin. That’s right, skincare is like your make up’s undies. You probably wouldn’t go out of the house without a bra on, try to think of your skincare routine in the same way.


Our skin changes all through our lives; hormones, stress, weather, climate, all have an effect on our skin. Proper cleansing, and moisturization are crucial to making our skin look it’s best. Finding a good dermatologist is also essential. They can help with correcting damage (I just had two post baby sun-spots frozen off in the office for $20!) and they can recommend treatments such as Obagi or Retin-A to smooth and soften the skin. 


Regardless of what kind of skin you inherited, many problems can be corrected or controlled. Sometimes in a simple, straight-forward way, sometimes in a counter-intuitive way. Take for example oily skin: you hate it because you break out and make-up slides off. Well, for one thing take heart, you ain’t gonna wrinkle easily. Finding the right products for your skin and following the routine will be essential.


Maybe you deal with dry skin. Dry skin is lucky because it doesn’t usually suffer breakouts like our non-wrinkling oily peers. Dry skin sometimes requires several levels of help. You’ll want to make sure you’re cleansing gently and moisturizing well; I love Laura Mercier’s Emu oil cream.


For all of us eye cream is a must. The skin around the eyes is very delicate and prone to showing and telling. When we  sleep poorly, drink too much, cry into our pillow all night- our under-eye area tells the tale. Using an eye cream everyday will help to lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles and the pressure you use to apply the cream helps to reduce puffiness.


Here’s wishing you gorgeous, glowing skin!

The Key to Your Powerful Brand Image

More often than not, each piece of your brand image was created when you needed it, but not altogether in a strategic fashion. Your image may look fine, but does fine help you grow?

Eventually as you scale, your image foundation cracks, and the way your business presents itself no longer helps propel growth – costing you time and money to fix.

When you unlock your brand power, you get to pick and choose how people perceive you and your brand.

Our Image Mastery System™ takes the 5 key brand components that you already have and ties them together in a way that amplifies your results and achieves your vision.

you generate when you up level your image?

I feel like a whole new person. I’ve been unchained from the old self. I’ve been freed to laugh and dream and smile. And I’ve become more accessible to my clients, which is the whole point.

Donna Terrell, Criminal Defense Attorney

It is hard to explain why Lee is so brilliant at what she does because it is almost like magic. She pierces through your personality and reflects who you are in what you wear. She does not just pick out great clothes – she picks an outwardly appearance that creates a comfort zone while also allowing the world to see the real you.

Nate Casey, Entrepreneur

Working with Lee has dramatically increased my revenue, not because of what I’m wearing but because of how I show up when I am dressed like my future self.

Angela Lauria, The Difference Press

When I reflect on who I was before working with Lee, I see that everything about me was a muted version of who I am today. And thanks to Lee’s incredible gift, I’m me. I now show up every single day: as the thought-leader Lee helped me dress to become (and be).

Hillary Walsh, Esq., New Frontier Immigration Law

Thank YOU! It was such a fantastic mini-class you took us through. You got everyone really into it! I can hardly believe that I actually had to cut them all off. You are a force! We are very lucky to have had the benefit of your help and we’re all better for it.

Megan Graves, Client Happiness & Team Happiness Coordinator, Upleveling Your Business

You are amazing!!!!!! I’ve been thinking about our conversation all day and this is just brilliant – you are a strategist and creative genius. Your vision completely resonates with me. I am so grateful for you, Lee.

Kelly McGrath, Esq., Kelly McGrath Law

Lee had a surprising way about her that uncovered my deeper self, my reason for being, and encoded it onto my wardrobe like a symbol—a moment-by-moment reminder of who I am, and what I’m here to do. Her brilliance crept up on me; I didn’t realize it was her behind the changes in my life until months afterwards. Now, I am able to approach everything I do from a place of power.

Jonathan Sparks, Esq. Sparks Law

Lee brings to life a vision bigger than I imagined. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on my personal brand, photo shoot strategy, and the brand experience of events for my non-profit. Through each piece she’s helped me grow as a leader and an organization. I love having her on my team.
