7-15-19 THIS WEEK: Reveal & Conceal Strategies

July 15, 2019, 6:54 pm by MSP


There is a certain contentment that comes from living a balanced life. You know, the comfort that comes from regular daily routines, or having a fairly set schedule-it just feels better than chaos.


As humans we are attracted to balance. We find it comforting. So when our lives get off kilter, and become stressful, we pull back and try to find a way re-establish balance in our life.

Just as we continually seek out equilibrium, we are also naturally attracted to symmetry. Studies have shown, the human eye gravitates towards symmetrical objects (whether they are part of a landscape, or the shape of another person's face). Symmetry is visual balance.


Did you ever wonder why a woman's certain outfit looks stunning, even though you don'’t particularly like the clothes?


It's usually because of the proportions of that particular outfit. When an outfit is balanced, it looks proportional, and we're attracted to this kind of symmetry. It is also why some face and body shapes can be considered more attractive than others.

If one proportion is bigger/smaller/longer/shorter than the other, you will need to balance out this proportion visually with the right clothes. Adjusting your body's proportions (visually) helps you create a balanced silhouette-and this is what every woman wants. 

I call this dressing technique "Conceal & Reveal" Strategies. It's about taking from one area, while adding to another area to create a balanced (hourglass) shape and the symmetry you want. Once you follow this way of dressing...you'll NEVER get dressed the same again!


This week at MSP...learn how to create a balanced look by using my "Conceal & Reveal Strategies" chart.

This works for every woman! Just select a body part you want to minimize, plus one you want to play up!

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

This week's Style Mission: Go make friends with your tailor! Take at least one item in to your local tailor and have it altered to fit you perfectly. 

The fact is, we all have unique feminine curves. Some of us have a fuller bust, some of us have a full booty, while others have a little extra in the middle--and every other body shape combination. Sometimes the fit of our clothes is close, but not quite right. So why do we expect "ready-to-wear" off the rack clothes will fit us all just right?


Take thee to a tailor!

You deserve clothes that fit right!

A good fit can make even a low-priced item look polished and expensive. Don’t be afraid to get items tailored, even if they were cheap. For a few dollars, a tailor can transform the most inexpensive item into a custom fitted piece for you. 

Go ahead and do it! Grab just one item from your closet you would wear more if it fitted your better. Now go take it to the tailor. You can thank me later! (Really, you can thank me by sharing your "got it tailored" story). Email me at: missusmsp@windstream.net


What SYSters Are Saying

Hi Leslie! 

I've been a "syster" for about 6 months now and what a difference! I'm a petite "A" that used to wear black and brown and wore clothes too loose for me! Now I am wearing the right colors (Yay for seasonal colors!) and the right cuts for my body type!  

Today a young mom complimented me and said that every time she sees me I am always put together and look nice! :o)  I wore a pencil skirt, a nice tank under a sunshine yellow cardigan, a pearl beaded bracelet, and sandals (and of course light make-up) 

I always vowed to myself that as a wife and a new mom... that I would be a "hot wife/mama".... and not the opposite! 

Thank you for helping me build more confidence in myself! Now I am more willing to interact with people because I don't worry about what I am wearing! 

And my husband still thinks I'm a "hot mama!" :o)

Dear MSP,

Today, I was at a great thrift store in my neighborhood.  I found a gorgeous, brand new, tags-still-on, Etienne Aigner handbag.  Soft red, silver zippers and buckles, perfect for my light summer coloring.  Bought it without hesitation.  Came home to check out new EA ones online - all bags that size are $400.00.  Great proportions for my type A petite body type.  I will use this forever!  And I knew it was a great bargain for me at $30.00!  Yippee!  Huge SCORE!  Told everyone at the store about Missus Smarty Pants...  

I am so happy!  And my new wardrobe is fabulous.  I can shop well at a discount, knowing exactly what I am looking for...  Your program ROCKS!  Love from your SYSter,  Pat

Dear Leslie,

I am a new syster and recently got a compliment from a co-worker who is quite stylish herself. I follow your advice and guess what? It worked! She told me what a cute jacket I had and how great I looked. (I followed what YOU recently said about the right jacket) I am happy with my “makeover”.

Thank you for helping women, this is a great service!

Blessings, Barb
