THIS WEEK: I'm sooo excited....because it's a "Closet Remix" week! 

(FYI: This complete article will be posted Thursday in all 5 Personal Profiles for style members)

 

Take a peek inside my closet. Find out what I wear, and how I wear it. First of all, you may think I have a lot of clothes. But, the truth is, I really don't. My wardrobe is not massive, nor is my budget unlimited...However, I do have amazing REMIX SKILLS!

Find out how you can s-t-r-e-t-c-h your wardrobe into something fabulous and yet sooo stylish!

 

Learn the secrets of closet remixing!

As a stylist, my wardrobe is built upon "smart" clothing purchases. 

 

One of my favorite things is wearing one item three different ways. Nothing (and I mean nothing) deserves to be in my closet unless it can be worn at least 3 different ways. Of course, basic items have more possibilities than just three ways, but everything else must also meet my "one item three ways" wearing criterion. Can you ask this of every piece hanging in your closet?

All body type Personal Profiles will get this handy article "Closet Remix Week". For sure, this week's article will inspire your wardrobe--but more importantly, it will save you lots of money!

MSP Teaches Body Acceptance: The Real Secret to Great Style!

Linda says, 

"Even just in my own lifetime, I have gone through changes from my twenties, as a young mother and on up to my mid-fifties now. I always thought I had very wide shoulders and felt huge. It was a combination of a distorted self-image and not knowing how to dress for the body I have. 

Thanks to you, MissusSmartyPants, I am dressing for how I'm designed, and my shoulders have "magically shrunk". Thank you for teaching an "older girl" new tricks."


MSP's Weekly Style Mission

This week’s Style Mission: It's a closet fling! FLING at least two (2) items from your closet you have not worn in at last 6 months. 

Be honest. You know there are at least two items in your closet taking up valuable real estate! You have no plans to wear these items because either they don’t fit you right or they are the wrong color for you. Fling them now and release yourself of this closet guilt!

 

Hurry! Set your timer. 

Spend 15 minutes inside your closet...then FLING at least two (2) items!

 


What SYSters are Saying

 

"Now, this is funny!" Who says husbands don't pay attention?

"Dear Friends, This morning I slept late, got up with "bedhead", mismatched pajamas, and said to my husband, "Well, THIS look certainly needs help!" He quickly responded: "Yes. A third piece." Martha

 

 

Dear MSP,

Thank you for helping me get it back together!

I am a full time Mom with kids 13,12 and 10. I had not been looking my best… so I decided to try your service. By using this service, the change has been an absolute revolution for me!  I have not lost any substantial weight, but I have gotten more compliments than I ever did before kids.  Weird, but delightful!!  

I didn’t even shop much as I went “closet shopping” and ended up just getting rid of a bunch of schlumpy sweats and baggy stuff that just made me look FAT.  Now that I dress for my "E" figure, I just feel better-Thanks!!



 

Dear MSP,

Could you please explain how to spot a good deal on clothes? I have a gift card and when I go shopping I get nervous that I may not wear what I buy. How do we know that we are making a smart purchase?

By the way I love your weekly shopping guides in my personal profile! The pictures are so helpful to me and my “C” body type. I am ready to start shopping better!

MSP HERE: Dear Florida SYSter,

Good question! A bargain is NOT a bargain if you end up not wearing it!

Think about the “cost per wear” before you buy. Some items will cost more than others. Divide the amount of times you wear it, by the price of the item. The Wardrobe Basics (in your Personal Profile) are clothes that will have a low “CPW” because you will wear them often. Other clothes, like a formal gown will have a high “CPW” because you may only wear it once or twice.

I also recommend you think of at least 3 different ways (or more) you can incorporate your purchase in to your regular wardrobe —BEFORE you buy it.

If you buy something because it is a “bargain” and you have nothing to match it—then you are only wasting your money!

When you bring home your new purchase, don’t just hang it up in your closet! Instead, get creative and pull out other clothes and make more new outfits (including accessories).

It takes time, but with MSP’s wardrobe plan and thoughtful purchases you will enjoy your wardrobe for a long time to come!

Love, Leslie MSP

GOT STATIC CLING?                                    

What’s the best way to deal with static cling?

The best way to handle static cling is with believe it or not…is with good old water! Use water from a spray bottle (or wet your hands) to reduce the static charge that is produced by the tights, skirt and dry winter air. Yes, it really does work! You're welcome ;)

Love, Leslie MSP
