This week MSP is sharing 12 amazing tips (that are often only known by fashion stylists) that could quite simply change the way you look and feel about yourself from this day forward! These 12 tips are... AMAZING!


You will get makeup tips, closet organization ideas, see how to adjust your dressing proportions for a balanced shape

+ tips on how to wear accessories right--and so much more!

I've done the research for you, I've been in the trenches as a personal shopper and fashion stylist, so now I'm "pulling back the curtain" and sharing these secrets and useful tips with you!

Why would I share these secrets? As a fellow busy woman, I understand how hard it is to find useful style advice. I've purchased many fashion magazines in the past, only to find the magazines were full of ads with NO useful information whatsoever! What a waste of money and time.

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

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

That's right, only one (1) item. This week you will learn how working within a wardrobe plan makes all the difference in the world. Using MSP's "Must-Have Wardrobe Basics" list from your Personal Profile, you will see what every woman needs in her wardrobe. It's your job to get just one of the basics your wardrobe is still missing.

Since 70% of a woman's wardrobe should be made up of basics, it's time to invest in one piece you still needs. Think about what you still really need. Look at your basics list and see what's still missing. Do you need a new pair of straight-legged pants or jeans or perhaps a new classic blazer? (Check out "Must-Have Wardrobe Basics" in your Personal Profile and see what is recommended.)

Love, Leslie MSP


Is your wardrobe looking a little dull and...perhaps a bit boring?

What SYSters Are Saying


Dear Leslie,
As they say "a picture is worth a thousand words."  To me, the pictures you show us are worth far more than that.  The outfits you've SHOWN in the Personal Profiles have given me so many ideas!  And, since I already own several pieces that are similar to those shown in your last style article, I can shop my closet and put outfits together the right away.
An added bonus is that you and I are both summers in coloring so when you model I get to see the fabulous outfits in my own seasonal coloring.  How neat is that?!  Seeing these coordinated, stylish outfits is priceless information.  I'd love it if YOU could model the ideas given in your articles more often.  When you do that I'm able to "get it" instantly and not have to go through a bit of wondering if I did or not.  

Actually, you make an excellent model for us in my opinion.  You are a tall, nice-looking, real world (not fantasy) woman who has the skill and knowledge to put your best self forward, and when we see the visual of you showing how you did it, it provides priceless inspiration. The confidence comes in quicker because I think, "Oh, that's what she means - I can do that; in fact, I can't wait to do that!"  A BIG thank you for such fabulous style articles!!!
Your style SYSter, Beth


A Long Overdue Thank You!

Dear Leslie,

I'll try to make my thank you as brief as possible: For a number of years now (8 or 9, I don't remember now, maybe longer) I have been subscribing to Missus Smartypants, off and on at times, but I've always had my eyes on your MSP newsletters that come out.

Growing up I was the long-haired girl that ran around barefooted in short short cutoffs and t-shirts (think 60's hippie wannabee)for way too long with no one to blame but myself. As a consequent I had no idea how to dress myself, and a four year stint in the Navy was uniforms all the time, that is, when I wasn't running around in cutoffs, t-shirts and flip flops. Then I graduated to blue jeans, etc. Over the years, people have tried to help me with this, much to their pain and my frustration, until one friend of mine began to bug me about you. Finally, to get her off my back, I began to subscribe and honestly, at times I was in angry tears from some of the things you would say about people who don't know how to dress themselves. Unfortunately there was so much for me to change, I couldn't do it all in one year or even three or four due to cost and time. So I started with panties one year, bras the next and so on from the inside out. This year I had my pants altered, it was a huge expense for me (I get things from Walmart sometimes) but I did it anyway, not realizing how much more comfortable my pants would feel. All these years I was holding my pants up with belts (my waist is at least one size smaller than my hips) not realizing I could do something about it. Meanwhile, after reading your articles, I began to get an eye for clothes. Do I look fashionable now? Well not exactly, I have something much better...I have style! I love spotting things that would look good on me, can be altered if I wish and everything color coordinates.

Guess what? I actually enjoy going in my closet now! People tell me I'm always nicely dressed, that I seem to "have it together" and I tell them about you. Last year I decided to lose weight (another story all by itself, maybe share it on another occasion) and lost twenty five pounds in one year (I had the pant alterations to burn that bridge)!

So I'm still working on this lifelong project, but now with joy instead of sorrow and just wanted to let you know how much your style articles mean to me and most likely a lot of other women just like me. With that, I will close with a deep, heart-felt "Thank You!" and wish you more of the same from many others on the same road as myself.

Sincerely, Anonymous 

P.S. I didn't know if my name would show on the forum, and I wanted to be anonymous, so that's why I sent it this way.
