3-19-18 THIS WEEK: 15 Pieces = 1 Month of Outfits

March 19, 2018, 3:42 pm by MSP

 

It's the biggest week ever at MissusSmartyPants.com!

All you need is fifteen (15) pieces. That's right.

With just fifteen pieces you will be able build a whole month's worth of outfits! 

Amazing? Yes, it is. This week, you will see how to set up your basic wardrobe into outfits you will wear all month long. Follow this easy step-by-step plan. This method of dressing will enlighten you and show you how easy and fun it is to be stylish! This is something that will improve every woman's confidence.

Hit your style "Re-set" button. Personally, when I find myself feeling like I have lots of clothes, but nothing to wear - I enlist this dressing technique of starting with one basic piece. It helps me get creative again, and uses what's in my closet.

 

The "style magic" happens when you pick out a small grouping of pieces that mix and match well with each other. Next, the object is to see how many outfit combinations you can create with them.  So often we get stuck thinking that certain items must go together and that’s it. For example, always wearing the same pink floral blouse with your tan tweed slacks and never considering other outfit possibilities for that pink floral blouse. Perhaps you think it will go with nothing else? Let me amaze you this week with new ways of seeing your whole wardrobe as "outfits".

 

Follow along with MSP's 15 pieces-30 outfits plan (given to you this week as a style member). You’ll see how to pick a few favorite and versatile pieces, then mix and match the items into surprisingly stylish outfits you've never thought about before!

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

This week's Style Mission is to invest only ONE wardrobe basic. 

That's right, just one (1) item. This week you will learn how working within a wardrobe plan (15 Pieces=30 Outfits) can make a huge difference in your day-to-day life.

Using MSP's "Must-Have Wardrobe Basics" list (located in your body type Personal Profile), go through the list and see what you are still missing. It's your job to get one of the basics your basics you still need.

Did you know: 70% of a woman's wardrobe should be made up of basics. It's time to invest in one quality, well-fitting piece. Look at the list and see what's missing. Do you need a new straight-legged dress slacks or boot-cut jeans or perhaps a classic blazer that goes with everything? 

Love, Leslie MSP

What SYSters Are Saying

 

Dear MSP
 

I was one of those gals who looked upon others who were so stylish with envy.  I never believed I could be one of them.  I often tried to emulate their style and of course came up short much of the time.  One woman – a friend – I really admire, but her shape and coloring are completely different from mine.  When I tried to dress like her of course it didn’t work!  While I still admire her style, I now realize that I wouldn’t be caught dead in her clothes (LOL)!  I spent a lot of money on impulse purchases-just to wear the clothes once (if at all!).  I had a closet packed with clothes and never had anything to wear!
 
It’s been a long journey for me.  I’ve made a few fashion mistakes, but I’ve learned a lot about myself and I think I’ve developed a unique style that works for me.  I have even lost a lot of weight!  It’s funny how we get stuck in that – “I’ll wait until I lose weight to buy clothes” rut.  Every woman at every size is beautiful.  I am a perfect example of the case where I decided to look good at the size I was at and somehow – because I felt good about myself – started to lose weight!!  It really works in reverse of how we think it will work!  Try it ladies!
 
Anyway, I had an AHA moment a few weeks ago that made me realize just how much my life has changed because of my MSP profile.  I work at a rather conservative bank that has a pretty strict dress code.  I often have to visit our branches and/or attend meetings.  I was at one of our branches when I received compliments on my outfit (I was wearing a dress – something that did not happen much pre-MSP).  One woman (who can be rather snippy and snide) made the comment that I was just dressed up because I had a meeting.  Well, pre-MSP, that might’ve been the case.  I often “dressed up” or wore an outfit I felt good in because I had a meeting (I’ve been known to even go out and buy a new outfit if it was a really important meeting – LOL!).  That is, when I remembered to check my calendar!!  I would often go to meetings feeling frumpy and sometimes that makes a person sort of cower in the corner and hope no one notices them!  When this woman made this not-so-nice comment, I thought to myself “No, I would’ve worn this outfit even if I didn’t have a meeting!”  Now, I feel good in all my clothes!  And, I am always meeting-ready!
 
Thank you MSP!

Dear MSP,

I was recently told by my boyfriend that he considered the way I dressed and my clothing "stylish"! I lost 100lbs last year and joined MissusSmartyPants.com last year.

WooHoo! Because of the reasonable approach your blog, meaning for average women on budgets, I have managed to replace my wardrobe and not bankrupt myself. Thank you for all you do; especially the inspiration and confidence I've gained. I now know it's not my body that is "wrong" if the garment doesn't fit. Now I enjoy looking for "my" garment. Shelley
