33 Outfits Every Petite Woman Should Try | Confident Style | Scoop.it
The never-ending search for small sizes, constant trips to the tailor, and the realization that you probably need a heel is enough style-related stress to make
Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:
Here are some great ideas you can try if you're petite. Height 5'4" an under. Of course all the models are under 40, so some of the looks aren't age appropriate, but there is some good style inspiration in this article.

October 2016: The 17 new beauty products I am obsessing over this month

October 2016: The 17 new beauty products I am obsessing over this month | Confident Style | Scoop.it
An actual no-bullshit, no-paid-for-by-the-brands curation of what's worth putting on your dressing table this month.
Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:

Most of my clients come to me at least in part because they get overwhelmed by shopping for clothes.  I do not get overwhelmed in that area - I thrive in it.

 

But you know what DOES throw me into overwhelm?  Makeup shopping.  I simply cannot stand the ridiculous amount of choices.  And the risk that when I do choose it will not turn out well.  At least with clothing, you can try it on and know exactly what you're getting BEFORE buying.

 

That said, I do appreciate when a trusted source such as The BeautyGypsy can narrow down the field with her interesting and informed comments.  I'm much more likely to pick and choose from a list like this, than I am to try to navigate the aisles of Sephora alone.

Maybe you will find this helpful too...

25 Famous Women on Body Image

25 Famous Women on Body Image | Confident Style | Scoop.it
Body positivity from Serena Williams, Meryl Streep, Adele, and more.
Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:

I think it's positive to hear from women in the public eye.  They are under more scrutiny than most.  Let their words sink in if it's what you need to hear...

 

I post frequently about the subject of body image, because as a Personal Stylist it is the #1 stress producing issue that I have to help my clients overcome and deal with... Large and small alike.

 

It is SO Real. Such a deep subject - and yet nothing more than an illusion and a mindset. In other words "Dressing the Body You Have to Create the Body You Want"! Bridgette Raes even wrote a book about it by that same name.

 

With clothing, you can create a bigger butt - a smaller waist - longer legs - Total Fabulosity!  At the end of the day, it's all about making a decision to accentuate YOUR positive - and NOT someone else's standard of beauty.  No matter what your perceived flaws may be, you CAN show up looking great.  It takes intention and a bit of planning, but it's doable for everybody.

 

 

Peace. Love & Fashion...

Anne

Small Feet? Buy Your Shoes Here

Find the tiniest sizes with the most style.
Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:

This author is correct! Small shoe sizes can be hard to find! It's especially frustrating to have to order online because they don't carry the in-store.  And online ordering for shoes is well, often disappointing. That said, these retailers offer hope and some pretty good looking options. Check them out!

After 20 Years, 1997's Top Fashion Trends Are Back in Style

The cycle of a trend is sort of a funny one: first something's really in, then it's really out, then it makes a triumphant return, cooler, modernized, and
Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:

As you probably know, I'm not a fan of trends...  I think they don't matter at all unless they look great on you. I'm not vouching for any of these returns - but it is fun to take a look back and maybe remember if you wore any of these things back in the day.

“I work in a business I no longer recognize,” fashion industry veteran and campaign casting director James Scully recently revealed.
Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:

Even within this article about the diversity problems in the Fashion Industry, there are diversity problems. The only comparison they use is between black and white models.  What about Asian, Latin and Indian and Transgender models.

 

Look Fashion Industry - it's just not that hard. People come in all shapes and sizes from all over the world.... And they all buy clothes and lingerie and perfume and everything else. It's almost 2017. Time to represent and get with the program!

Soon You Can Scan a Garment’s Label to Find Out How Sustainable It Is

Soon You Can Scan a Garment’s Label to Find Out How Sustainable It Is | Confident Style | Scoop.it
The Povigy app aims to back up clothing brands’ claims of sustainability
Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:

Because of the amount of shopping I do - I often find myself thinking about sustainability issues.  It's totally overwhelming to think about the vast amount of clothing that comes into even one mall in one city every month, let alone all over the world. One startup company is  harnessing the power of information and stories to help.  I think its Brilliant and I Applaud them!

Povigy  is a third-party product registration platform that evaluates the sourcing of raw materials,
supply chain logistics, manufacturing, labor, and environmental impacts of apparel.

Their product registration provides a way for customers to see beyond the tag – to understand the
value and impact of their purchases, to connect with the hands that made them, and to use their
purchasing power to support products that align with their values.

Anne Morrissey - Personal Stylist's insight:

One of my amazing clients posted this on her blog about her experiences working with a Personal Stylist - which just so happens to be me!  I post this here because I want to share that her initial mindset is very common - especially for busy moms.

And that mindset leads to a down hill spiral of frumpiness when left unchecked. But with the decision to dress well, comes all kinds of benefits.  Here, she relates her story of "fair to fabulous"...

If you don't get the foundation right - the outfit will NOT be as good as it can be.  And at worst, it can be a disaster!  The only place I will shop for underwear of have a bra fitting is Nordstrom.  They know what they're doing and they have everything you could ever need.  It's not inexpensive, but it's worth it.

Most people tune in to Suits for the legal drama, but we are watching for the clothes. Three ladies on the hit TV show prove bold dresses and blouses have a place in the corporate world.

So, I've never seen this show.  But this is an interesting slide show. I'm all for stylish and well put together work wear. I know it can be beautiful, comfortable, sophisticated polished powerful and stylish at the same time, but I don't think women should go for sexy looks at work.  Sexy is only for after work.  It's too easy to send the wrong signals.
