1. Don’t think that athletic apparel has to be boring and frumpy. Take a look at these lines of sexy, fun work out duds: Margarita, Bella Mia, Stella McCartney for Adidas, and Kimsbodywear.com.
2. Do mix in fun colors with accessories and jackets, especially if the major part of your outfit is neutral (Black and white, gray, navy, brown).
3. Don’t forget to add these essentials to your wardrobe: Little black dress, a slim skirt, white jeans, a good, sturdy loafer, a matching sweater set, a white button-down, sunglasses that flatter your face, snug fitting blazer, high-heel sandals, and the perfect bra.
4. Do collect pictures from fashion magazines; you can recreate the outfits on your budget.
5. Do stop hiding your womanly curves behind baggy sweats and t-shirts. Be proud of who you are as a woman!
6. Do ask your friends “How Do I Look?”
7. Don’t put yourself down every time you set foot into a dressing room. Instead, focus on your best features. Find clothes that flatter those areas.
8. Do style your hair to go with your outfit. It can make or break the total look. If you are clueless in this area, ask your hair stylist for ideas. They will be happy to teach you. If you look good, they look good!
9. Do whiten your teeth if you like to wear red lipstick. Try different shades at a cosmetic counter to find the right one for you.
10. Do try the smokey eye thing. Follow these tips and you won’t look like a raccoon. Put a medium colored shadow on lids, a lighter shade above and a darker one on lash lines. It’s as easy as that!
"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
