Fashion 101 Video Series- Be A Fashionista in 4 Easy Steps


 Fashion 101 Video Series

Let's talk about style....The kind of style that makes your man's head turn and your momma proud!
We all view Fashion differently, but I'd like to make FASHION FUN & EASY! 

In this Video Series, I start with the Basics, and walk you through the Complete Style Strategy I have used for years in serving my Retail Customers.

Step 1- Find Your Signature Fashion Style

We all have 1 signature style that we love to dress most of the time. But let's go a step further, and beyond the 4 main styles we are familiar with, I have developed 7 Fashion Styles that I've seen most women tend to embrace.

Goddess, Classic, Trendy Diva, Natural, Sporty, Biker Babe, and Bombshell. Each have their unique characteristics, and we dress more than one depending on the occasion.

Watch Video Below to Learn More About the 7 Fashion Styles


Now you can see what all the Style Personalities are, and the examples of how to dress each one.
This can be the funnest part of dressing everyday, if you embrace it!

I have also written a FASHION QUIZ, that determines your Signature Fashion Style. You can Take the 5 Minute Quiz Here!


>>>Take Quiz<<<

Step 2- Outfit Coordination

Once you have found your Style Personality, it's time to Create a Styled Wardrobe for your Signature style, and any Fashion Styles you dress on different occasions.

Watch This Video to Learn How To Create an Outfit using my Exclusive "Cupcake Coordination" Method. It makes outfit coordination soooo easy and fun!



Now that you have learned the art of outfit coordination, it's time for accessories...or The "Sprinkle" layer of our outfits!

There are many elements to the accessory category, so I will share with you the main ones Below.

Step 3- Finding the Right Jewelry

First let's talk Jewelry. We all have different choices, but there are some easy tips to always remember.

Watch This Video below to Learn More about choosing jewelry.



I also have an AWESOME Video where I share WHICH JEWELRY that goes with each FASHION STYLE! This makes picking the right jewelry for your Fashion Style fool proof!



See how fun it is when you use my Method of DRESSING DIFFERENT STYLE PERSONALITIES??
When you break it down like this, it makes building the perfect wardrobe SIMPLE AND FUN!

Step 3- Handbag Accessories

Styling an outfit with a HANDBAG is essential in finishing an outfit. There are a few tips you may have heard before, but some new ones for you here in this VIDEO!



There are so many options for HANDBAGS out there! Use these tips to CREATE YOUR HANDBAG COLLECTION that matches the 7 Fashion Styles you dress everyday.

The Final Video in this Video Series will be "SHOE ACCESSORIES", and will be published on YouTube Next Week!...So Stay Tuned!

Step 4- Building Your Wardrobe

Now that you have all the STYLE ELEMENTS NEEDED , you can start to build your CORE WARDROBE. Using the knowledge that I've shared in these Videos, clean out your closet, and LET'S BEGIN!

CLEAN OUT ALL DRAWERS AND CLOSET, THEN SEPARATE YOUR WARDROBE ITEMS AS FOLLOWS....Tops, Pants, Shoes, Belts, Skirts, etc... till you have ALL THE PILES ON YOUR BED!

To Learn More about how to do this...Read my Blog Post "CLOSET CLEAN-OUT" Here

>>>Closet Cleanout Blog Post<<<


Now that we have a clean slate, we can start to build our Signature Wardrobe. We have separated our clothing items into categories, so we can see at a glance, what we own. This is the 1st step.

HERE IS A CHEAT SHEET FOR ALL THE
 WARDROBE ELEMENTS FOR EACH OF THE 7 STYLES!

My Exclusive Free Fashion & Style E-Book
"Who Do You Wanna Be Tonight?"


Using the easy Grid Graphic, you can see exactly which items you need for each of the FASHION STYLES you wear!

Then, check-off which items you already own, from your CLOTHING CATEGORY piles on the bed. You will see what you have, and what you need to put on your SHOPPING LIST.



After you are done READING YOUR FASHION E-BOOK, you will know exactly WHICH CLOTHING ITEMS, ACCESSORIES, SLEEPWEAR, OUTERWEAR, ETC..that you will need to build your WARDROBE!

You will DRESS YOUR SIGNATURE FASHION STYLE, EMBRACE OTHER FASHION STYLES
and truly "Be Anyone You Wanna Be Tonight!"

YOU ARE NOW A CONFIDENT, SEXY, FASHIONISTA
THAT WILL TURN HIS HEAD...AND MAKE YOUR FRIENDS ASK!

How To Start An Online Boutique 5 Easy Steps

How To Start An Online Boutique

What a bunch of Red Tape!...The last few months have been a challenge for sure, but one thing IS for sure....It's worth every minute!.

Months of endless e-mails. Hours of product listing, day after day of planning, and note taking. The process was a long, drawn out ordeal, but the final challenge is almost over.

I'll walk you through my step-by-step system I discovered along the way. Mistakes were made, for sure, but all the better for you, since I worked through it, and want to share the process. If you are interested in starting an ONLINE BOUTIQUE, read on.


 

Step 1- Do Your Research

Research is a must before you begin. Decide your NAME, IDEAL CLIENT, AND YOUR USP (Unique Selling Proposition) What makes you special, and sets you apart from the crowd?

Decide business type, inventory, drop shipping, collaboration, etc..I'll explain more about this later in this blog post.

WATCH THIS VIDEO ABOUT HOW I DID THIS...


Step 2- Organize Inventory

This is a time consuming process. Take good notes, keep those notes organized, and do one thing at a time. Keep track of all your orders, to make sure you aren't over ordering. Start small, and work up from there.

Manage the invoices, and create a filing system, or an online bookkeeping for those invoices. This is the only way to keep track of what you're spending. Go back through the orders if you need to, in the future, to adjust the nest order, depending on sales.

Step 3- Product Listing on Website


WATCH THIS VIDEO THAT SHARES MY PRODUCT LISTING IDEAS


Product Photography is the alternative to vendor photos. There are many videos on YouTube that shares this process. So check it out. Drop shipping also uses vendor photos, ao this process isn't needed, unless you want to.

HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THE LOOKBOOK ON MY WEBSITE









Step 4- Launching Your Boutique

Now that the backend is set, its time to plan a LAUNCH! You decide what that means to you. Video's need to be made, going LIVE is a must, and Planning out your Social Media is advisable.

Because of Covid-19, we are planning a PHOTO SHOOT, along with a VIDEO FASHION SHOW. I've thought of a way to do this, wearing masks to and from the locations, and meeting with 1 model at a time. People are usually 6 feet from each other in a photo shoot anyway. With the help of Video editing Apps, I plan to create a LAUNCH VIDEO. A VIDEO FASHION SHOW is Coming!





Step 5- Sell, Sell, Sell

This is the moment you have worked so hard for. Marketing your business is your life blood! There are many ways to market your online boutique, and I'll share a few ideas I'm using.

Canva Pro is an app or desktop page that I use to edit my images. The PRO VERSION allows you to take backgrounds off your images, and provides FREE VIDEO CLIPS, AND PHOTOS. Check it out!
There is a Free Version, and a Pro version. The paid version is $19.00 a month.

Videoshop App is what I use for creating Video's with Text overlays, music, and so much more! There is a FREE VERSION, and a PAID VERSION. The paid version is $3.99 a month.

I have a Social Media plan, and I learned it from Jasmine Star. She is a Photographer, and Business strategist. She has SOCIAL CURATOR, that offers A Social Media Action Plan Each Month, along with her Photos, Caption to use each month, and a PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP where she teaches MASTERCLASSES that help us market our businesses. Her Monthly Subscription is $49 a month.

I plan out my Instagram on PLANOLY Free Version, and there is also a paid version. This App lets you upload all your photos, and rearrange them so they look good on your Instagram Feed.


MOST OF YOUR MARKETING WILL BE DONE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

- Facebook & Facebook Ads (Facebook Helps you)
-Instagram SHOPS (Google all the ingo)
-Pinterest Strategies- (Must for a Boutique)
-You-Tube (Videos of your Products)
-Linked In

These are all a must in my opinion.

I listen To 2 Boutique Podcasts, and they are..."Boutique Hub", with Ashley Alderson, and The "Boost Your Boutique" Podcast with Emily Benson. Each of these have tons of resources, plus masterminds and trainings, so you can grow your boutique!

I hope this Blog Post has been helpful. If you have any questions, shoot me a comment below, and I'll reply with any resources I have.

SUMMER IS SEXY SEASON! 10 MUST HAVE SUMMER ITEMS


SUMMER IS SEXY SEASON!

10 MUST HAVE SUMMER STAPLES

There are a few Summer Wardrobe Staples we MUST HAVE to look and feel Sexy!..It's not just about a Swimsuit! Below I share My List for everything you need!

 

A Classy Hat- Yes, to block the sun, but more than that...we want to look classy and stylish at the same time! (See pic above)



 

A Sexy Sarong- So much better than a boring Cover-up. The chiffon scarf shown above can be worn 5 different ways! My YOU-TUBE VIDEO shares the ways to style a scarf!



 


Cute Flip-Flops- Rhinestone studded is you like, but please ladies...lose the cheap plastic flip-flops?...lol



 

Retro Shades- Every beauty babe needs a classy, retro looking pair of sunglasses! Jackie-O style. I suggest more than 1 pair. Coordinate with your outfits.



 

Classic Daisy Dukes- If you know what I mean, these are the blue jean cut-offs made popular from the classic show "Dukes of Hazzard".lol

Show some leg, but please, no butt cheeks! lol



 

Good Self-Tanner- If you would rather use a self tanner than lay out in the sun, you need to keep one handy. Use daily to maximize your tan, as the product will build layer upon layer to deepen your tan!



 

A Soft Beach Towel- Don't ust grab one from the linen closet, find one that's soft to the touch, classy, and dark colors. Darker colors absorb the Sun, light colors reflect. Also goes for Swimsuits if you want an easier way to tan.



 

A Good Magazine- Great for a day in the sun, a cozy night on the couch, or with a good cup of coffee in the morning.



 

A Red Bandana- Wear them for a do-rag, a scarf, a headband, or as a belt. So many style options for this summer accessory.



 

A Comfy Lawn Chair- For Sun tanning, camping or star-gazing, keep one in your trunk for those last minute road trips!




BUT WE CAN'T FORGET THE SWIMSUITS!

I found these at VENUS.COM..this website has the best, high quality SWIMSUITS on the internet!
Shop each piece separately for the perfect size and fit! Their customer service is amazing, and the prices are reasonable!






Here Are A Few More Ideas to Style

 Yourself This Summer







Enjoy Your Summer & Don't Forget To Try Some Of The Tips In This Blog Post!

Till Next Time, Much Love...

Let's face it..Summer has done a number on our hair!

Between the salt water, chlorine, heat, and humidity, we need serious help!

Below I share some of my best tips from years of working as a Cosmetologist!

MY TIPS...

1. My best advice, is to ALWAYS WEAR HAT. Plus, it's goddess SEXY!


2. Protect your hair beforehand with leave in conditioner or Moisturizing Treatment.


3. After swimming, or a day in the sun, thoroughly wash, and condition hair.


4. For massive chlorine damage from repeated pool fun, I recommend a deep conditioning hair treatment. 


 5. For Intensive Repair of damaged hair I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PAUL MITCHELL  PRODUCTS listed below!

6. Take a break from heat styling. Go natural for a while.


7. Get hair trimmed every month 1/4 inch.

8. Switch to a silk pillow. Less stress on hair.


9. Massage your scalp regularly. This stimulates the natural oil glands.

10. Consider a Vitamin E Oil Supplement. It is a miracle worker for hair, skin, and nails!
