  1. I just signed up with msp and I am a bit overwhelmed! Any suggestions of where to begin? Thank you!

  1. Hi and welcome!

    I would recommend that you familiarize yourself with the guidelines for your body shape, and then begin the closet purge. Both can be found here on the website. I would start with one certain type of clothing, such as tops or pants for example. Try each one on in front of a full-length mirror, and decide if they fit well, follow the guidelines, and are the right color for you. Get rid of anything that doesn't fit well, is old and worn out, is the wrong color, or that you just don't love. Take as much or as little time as you need to do these steps, so that you don't get overwhelmed. Sometimes it helps to take pictures of the clothes on you, to help you see if they are worth keeping.

  2. For some reason part of my last post was cut off. Anyway, I mentioned that after you purge your closet, you will see what pieces from the basics list are missing. Again, take your time to fill in those pieces. Don't just buy the first thing you see. This whole process is a journey, and it doesn't have to be finished all at once. As you read Leslie's articles and suggestions, and ask questions here in the forum, you will feel more comfortable and confident in your choices. Good luck!

  4. Thank you Cindy27 and cyntneal for your very helpful suggestions! I appreciate the time you took to answer me. I'll start with my closet purge. Wish me luck that the dust bunnies don't attack me ;-) RENEE
