MSP's Weekly Style Mission

"Mix it up" week! This week’s Style Mission is to NOT buy anything this week. Instead, mix-up your clothes and create “new” outfits using what's already in your closet!

Start with one (1) basic...then build your outfit from there. (I usually start with a basic bottom, then select my top, then my accessory)


That’s right ladies...put on your creative "thinking caps" and create something “new” to wear directly from your closet.

TIP: Be sure to include accessories into the mix because they just might be the “catalyst” that helps you create your “new outfit”.

Love, Leslie MSP


What SYSters are Saying


MSP: How do you acquire your wardrobe?

Dear MSP,

I was hoping you could direct some comments to how you plan and acquire your wardrobe long term. For example, how often do you go shopping for clothes, under what circumstances, etc?

I often find that I wait till all my clothes are either worn out or ill-fitting before I finally go shopping and then I get overwhelmed. I'm sure there is a better system. (Grocery shopping is so much easier because it's a weekly chore, but clothes seem much more arbitrary...)

Thanks, Paula

MSP HERE: Dear Paula,

Thank you for your email. To answer your question about how and when to purchase clothes, there really is no clear-cut answer.

However, I do recommend doing what I do. I go through my closet at the beginning of each season. I re-organize my seasonal clothes to the front and make a list of what I might need to complete more wearable outfits. When I do this closet organizing it’s a good time to add in a new or trendy item to keep my wardrobe looking fresh and up-to-date.

Of course you don't have to wait until the beginning of season to purge your closet and start working on a basic plan. It can be done anytime of year. By purging all the unworn clothes, you get down to the "bare bones" of the clothes  you actually wear all the time. This will allow you to start building (slowly) a more usable wardrobe where your basics are the foundation.

When you have a wardrobe plan, you will find that shopping is not so overwhelming. In your personal profile each week are suggestions of styles based solely on your body type. This will give you a plan for shopping and make it fun since you know what to look for!

Love, Leslie MSP

This is proven because He offers forgiveness to all who believe that Jesus took the punishment for our sins & who live in obedience to His laws of love. Your site is similar because you show your clients how to replace lies with the truth that they can look beautiful & be happy with their appearance. You bless so many people. -Anonymous"
