This weeks headline news of Angelina Jolie under going preventive double mastectomy and talking about the risks of being a BRCA carrier, was something I couldn’t ignore! As I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 33 and later learning I also was a BRCA carrier! Her decision to have preventive double mastectomy was so brave and even braver that she shared it publicly! I hope her speaking out opens the eyes of so many other women who also face this risk! Way to go Angelina!
One of the biggest obstacles people face when it comes to their wardrobe is feeling overwhelmed by their closet and thinking they have “nothing to wear”. My first, and most recommended step when working with clients is doing a closet cleanse. The opportunity to have someone go through your entire closet and make decisions on what items to keep based on criteria that include fit (sometimes items just need to be tailored or tossed), condition, lifestyle, and being current. Then we decide what to cleanse! I like recycling so I will recommend finding new homes for old pieces at your favorite charity, consignment shop, or eBay! Then part of cleansing should be organizing! I work with clients so that they can see everything in their closet. Arranging items by color and season! In doing all this you can clearly see the holes or gaps in your wardrobe which will make clothes shopping more efficient. You will no longer buy the same white t-shirt for the 100th time because now you will know what”s in your closet!
What I’m lusting for this week…since the weather has been a little chilly my favorite bottle of Merlot, ever, by Emma Pearl to warm my bones. This adorable t-shirt, Shopping Is My Cardio, by Wildfox. I think it’s fun to add a tee like this to your wardrobe, it can take the seriousness out of a look and make it whimsical! A great fitting pair of white denim like these Jbrand Maria hi-rise, the fit is impeccable and perfect for anyone who wants to hide a potential muffin top.Sandals by Circus for Sam Edelman. A unique, affordable sandal that will liven up summer outfits! Lastly, I love the ombre look this is what I will be doing to my hair for summer! xo Robin
