12-12-16 THIS WEEK: 12 Things Every Woman Needs

December 12, 2016, 4:31 pm by MSP


As much as we hate to admit it, looks matter. The clothing we wear doesn't just cover our bodies, they help make an impression on others. Our clothes (hair and makeup, etc.) should be neat and clean to help us create a positive image. Of course, once the person knows us better, besides how we dress, they will appreciate all that we offer. However, if we minimize the importance our outer appearance we are doing ourselves a huge dis-service. The fact is, we don't get a second chance at a first impression. A first impression is a lasting impression.

How we present ourselves says a lot about us. One of the most important things a woman can do for herself is to understand what clothes are right her shape and dress for the body she has today. When you embrace YOU, your style develops.


Isn't time to BE that woman you've always wanted to be? Isn't it time you stop worry about what others think? Simply BE YOU. By discovering your own true style, suddenly it changes everything about you...from the way you stand, to the way you interact with others. It's amazing what being your own stylish woman will do for you.


When you are comfortable in your own skin, it shows.

Other people can't help but respond positively to your inner confidence that shines through! 

"From twenty to ninety-five...be your best version of you!"

Look in the mirror. What is your opinion? As they say, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression". This means you should seasonally assess your wardrobe, hair and style. You don't want to get caught in a fashion moment and stay there! Updating your appearance keeps you current. It's essential to look current regardless of what stage you are in life. From twenty to ninety-five...be your best version of you!

What SYSters Are Saying


Dear Leslie, The first article I read on your site was one that suggested jeans for eliminating muffin tops. I took a chance and ordered the ones you suggested. They were perfect and AMAZING! Those jeans made me a complete convert to your site! Last week I lost the jeans in the laundry. I want to replace them but I can't remember where I got them or which jeans they were. Could you send me the article that suggested them so that I can re-buy my favorite, but now lost, jeans? I would be very grateful. Susan

Dear Leslie,

The MSP website is so helpful. For years I've pretty much 
freaked out when I had to accompany my husband on a business trip 
because I bought nothing for months, and then suddenly had to "look 
nice." It was always unsatisfactory and depressing.  

But the profile has taught me how to look at clothes and consider what works for me, and to realize that it is a learning process and a planning process. 
It takes time, patience and the willingness to learn from mistakes. There seem to be fewer of those lately! 

Keep up the good work, and thank you for helping us master this wonderful form of self-expression! 



MSP's Weekly Style Mission

Look years younger! Sounds too good to be true—kinda like an “infomercial” doesn't it? Well, it’s not. Simply groom your eyebrows and you’ll look years younger—or at least not so tired.

Your Style Mission: Take your bushy brows in for a professional eyebrow shaping. (At my salon the service is $19) A pro will shape and define your arches according to their natural flow and what flatters your face. A more polished (but not over-plucked) brow will open up the face, and once the base shape is established, maintenance means simply tweezing away any strays that crop up.

You’ll be so glad you did this Style Mission. In fact, I’d love to hear from you. Share your stories/testimonials about your “eye raising” experience and how you look (and feel) so much better. Email me at: missusmsp@windstream.net

Before: Left Side    After: Right Side

P.S. This is the "perfect" style mission because FlyLady's habit for the month of December is "Pampering"!
