Do you lack confidence in your style, yourself, or your body? Maybe you feel you dress too old for your age or your business attire isn’t as professional as you’d like it to be. Whatever the case, a dose of style can bring a sense of hope and confidence back into your life.

A style consultation that is both extremely educational and enjoyable is an invaluable resource and can change your life forever. A result-driven personal stylist teaches you everything you need to know about acquiring effortless style that’s tailored to fit your individual lifestyle and body. The result? A style that makes you feel confident and happy.

It’s easy to feel down when you believe that you lack the “tasteful style gene.” It is a challenge to have great style if you never know what to wear to make your body look great, or have no clue where to go to find flattering outfits. Throw this negative attitude away and make a change.

Feeling better about your style doesn’t have to be overwhelming. The key is starting small. Here are some tips to get you started:

1.     Start by thinking about who you are, your lifestyle, and the style you desire. Do you work in an office, from home, or in a store? What activities do you do in your leisure time? Is your style holding you back from enjoying activities with friends?  Getting to know yourself and what you want to express through your style is a key element in transforming your appearance and mindset. If you’re going to create the style you desire, you must be honest with yourself and understand what it is that you want to change or improve. To move forward, you must confront the past. Remember that with the right tools, anyone can have great style.

2.     Learn about your body shape to discover what clothing shapes and cuts are most flattering for your body. The key is finding the right fit and remembering that you have control over your clothing. You can make minor tweaks and changes to get a perfect fit. You don’t have to accept clothing straight off the rack. If your hips make finding trousers a royal pain, don’t just settle for wearing skirts. Fit the largest part of you and have a tailor take in the places that are too big. Once you know the tricks to dressing your body shopping will become easier and you will start to develop the style you desire. If you’re not sure what size you are or what styles and shapes fit your body the best, ask a trusted friend or an expert stylist to help you find the perfect outfits that compliment your body type and lifestyle.  

3.     Look through your wardrobe to learn more about your style. Your closet will tell you what you actually wear, the styles you like, and pieces you are missing to complete a look. If you’re not inspired by your closet, tear out pictures from magazines or take note of women you see on the street.  You’ll start to discover patterns including what colors, materials, and sizes you often wear or like. Once you identify a steady pattern, analyze the elements that frequently appear in your wardrobe and classify the characteristics you like and dislike. Use this information to help you find a personal style that you truly love. Ask a close friend to provide you with an outsider’s perspective and some objective advice. For professional guidance, contact a trusted style expert.

It is difficult to get inspired by Fall’s great fashion with temperatures still hitting 90 degrees in the middle of September.  For those of us in warmer climates, fall fashion means thinking outside the box.  There are some easy ways to participate in the excitement of fall fashion while accepting the reality of the climate you live in. 


The easiest way to welcome fall into a scorching climate is to play with color.  Participate in a fall color trend.  This season you will find beautiful fall color palettes with many colors to suit your personal style. Choose from subtle autumn hues and vibrant jewel tones.  Pair these colors with muted neutrals like chocolate brown or shitake gray.


Change the look of your dresses.  Trade in your sundress for a sophisticated wrap dress in a rich color or pattern.  While the weather is still warm wear it with flats, as it gets cooler, add boots and a structured jacket for a new look.  Change the look of your classic summer dress with a sweater or tights.  Wear the dress with tights and heels, or layer with a sweater to turn the dress into a skirt.


Make a statement with bold accessories in rich fall colors.  Give your boring black and brown handbags a rest.  A rich jewel tone bag makes a statement while acting as a go to neutral.  Upgrade your flip flops for sassy flats and comfy heels.  This season the low-heeled shoe is both comfortable and chic.

Jewel Tone Color Palette:




It is possible to feel stylish and comfortable.  Use these tips to create a style you are comfortable in.


1.      Ask yourself why you are unhappy with the way you look?  How does your look make you feel?  There is a way to counteract those negative feelings with clothing, while being comfortable and staying true to who you are.

2.      If you feel unattractive, you are focusing on the wrong things.  Find the parts of your body that you like (If you can’t find them, ask a friend) and learn how to accentuate them.

3.      Make an effort to learn about your body type.  We are all different shapes and sizes, which means we will not all fit into the same pair of pants.  Learn about fits and designers that work best for you.

4.      If comfort is key, be realistic about your lifestyle when making clothing choices.  If you are on your feet all day wear a fashionable flat or kitten heel.  Save your amazing new platform pumps for a dinner that includes valet. 

5.      Clothing effects the way you feel about yourself and changes the way you are perceived by others.  With that in mind, only buy clothing you love.

5 Tips & Tricks About Bras 


1.  Give your bra a rest.  Wearing your bra more than two days in a row wears out the support elastic.  A day of rest will give it a chance to recover its memory.

2.  When you purchase your bra it should fit snuggly on the loosest hook.  As the bra ages you can tighten it using the remaining hooks to maintain the original fit.

3.  Get fitted at least once a year.  Breast size fluctuates due to many factors like age, weight gain/loss, and pregnancy.   

4.  Try your bras on before you purchase them.  Bras are like clothing, every brand will fit a little differently. 

5.  Quality vs. quantity pays off.

New Bra, Now What?


Now that you have a new bra, use your clothing to accentuate your chest in the most flattering way.


 1. If you have a large chest use a v-neck to visually separate “the girls,” making you appear slimmer.

2.  Halter tops are a small chest’s best friend.  The angle of the halter flatters a small chest and gives you an opportunity to show off sexy shoulders.

3.  Just say no to thick stripes and ribbing across your chest.  A large chest makes the stripes and ribbing look more like ocean waves.

4.  Choose clothing that conceals your bra straps. 

5.  Use fitted jackets to create and show off a waistline giving you a defined hourglass shape.

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.

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.
