Swimsuit Confidence and Cute Coverups      WHAT DO I WEAR??

Are you dreading the thought of buying a swimsuit this summer?. I know it is not just the purchase that gives so many of us the anxiety and torture, it is the process of trying so many on until you finally settle on one.

Here are a few tips to remember when shopping for one. After all I don’t know many women that go through the process without some frustration.

  • Find swimsuits with an hourglass pattern to create you own hourglass figure.
  • If you are full figured, a built in wire cup is flattering and shaping. 
  • Miracle Suits are a perfect choice to pull everything in. 
  • Tankinis are versatile and flatter many body types
  • Camouflage your muffin top with a long waisted tankini
  • Opt for small prints to distract from your stomach 
  • Look for solid bottoms for a slimming effect
  • Don’t look at yourself and mourn the body you used to have
  • Focus on the Positive!


Bathing suit shopping can be overwhelming when you walk into the department and see lots of bright, wild colors.

Focus on finding one that repeats or compliments your hair, skin, or eye colors. Already you’ll feel more attractive in a bathing suit.


Cover me Up

Maxi dresses can be a perfect beach or pool party cover up. They are comfortable with a variety of necklines to compliment your swimsuit.
A lovely Kaftan doubles as a cover up or summer top. Slip on a pair of capris or cropped jeans and you are ready to go to dinner.

All you need to make your poolside entrance is one bold accessory. Consider the wide brimmed floppy hat, a generous lightweight infinity scarf, or a metallic heeled sandal.

Graduation Parties, and 4th of July parties are fun to look forward to, but WHAT DO I WEAR? is the question. 

Comfort is key in choosing the right outfit.  Depending how you feel about your legs shorts or cropped slacks are a good choice.  Cotton, linen, cold shoulder tops make a statement.  And of course wear red, white or blue for the fourth of July.  When wearing a comfortable pair of jeans choose a great top to finish off your look.  Sandals, wedges  and espadrilles always work for an outdoor party.

Don’t forget the extra accessories!!

  • Bold beautiful  colorful tote bag
  • Earrings, bracelets, or necklaces complete your outfit
  • Make sure all the pieces relate and harmonize with each other
  • Have fun choosing a pair of Sunglasses this summer

Graduation party ideas

Sundresses in  beautiful floral prints are always a good choice for a graduation party.  They are comfortable, casual and pretty.

I am invited to a wedding this summer. What should I wear??

  • If the invitation is not specific about dress attire, feel free to wear a dress you love and feel great in.
  • It is always OK to wear a the Perfect Black Dress to an afternoon or evening Wedding.
  • Black Tie optional can be confusing to many of us. Choose a cocktail dress in a color that compliments you, or black.
  • Accessories always finish your look
  • If the wedding is on the grass, consider wearing a wider heel or wedge.

Getting Dressed is Easy With a Dress

When the weather gets warmer, make dressing easy when you choose to wear a dress. Dresses can be all personality if you choose one in a flashy print, bold color or high tech fabric. Or you can add personality to a simple dress with your choice of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, handbags, and shoes.

Accessorizing your dresses

  1. When wearing a multi-layered dress consider adding a leather belt to the waist to create some definition and a focal point.
  2. Wear a knit column dress with a funky low slung wide hip belt.
  3. Wear a long pendant with an oversized A-line dress.
  4. Wear larger totes or bags with dresses with lots of volume.
  5. Add a wide scarf as a wrap for a sleeveless dress.
  6. To make a dress appear less girly, wear a chunky heeled sandal

A few final dress tips from Pam

  1. If you’re worried about the heat choose a dress without a collar. It’ll be cooler than one with a collar.
  2. On that note, fuller dresses create more natural ventilation.
  3. Wearing a full slip under a dress can keep a dress from clinging.
  4. Choosing to wear a dress in your favorite print can make you feel cheerful all day.
  5. There’s no reason to fret about hem lengths. You’ll find dresses with short hemlines or hemlines at the knee, below the knee, at the calf, or all the way down to your ankles.

Make this the year you express yourself in a dress (or two or three) that brings you delight.

Let me help you select dresses that relate to your personality and flatters your figure. Together we’ll address the dress!  Give me a call at 203.798.0718 or email me at [email protected].

Have Fun in Your Closet This Fall

Are you one of the many women who struggle with finding the perfect outfit in your closet? Many women go to the same old same old every day, not realizing that there is a better way.

In every closet I am invited into there is always an AH HA moment. I find “HiddenTreasures” and create outfits that my clients always say, “I would have never thought of putting that together”

Meet Gail and Annamarie. They are two of my clients that have enjoyed the process of learning how to “Have Fun in your Closet”.


Gail and I found a variety of ‘new’ outfits from her existing wardrobe.

Gail is a Ball Room Dancer and an equestrian. She wanted to feel special when she walked out the door or entered a room. By focusing on her favorite colors and items that fit her petite body, we created outfits that were updated and stylish. Gail felt fantastic.



We mixed and matched some black and white pieces for a professional look.

Annamarie was starting a new job and her clothing needed to reflect her new position.
We paired pieces from her wardrobe for end of summer business trip that would enhance her vibrant personality and new career.
I suggested she discard anything that was in poor condition or just didn’t flatter her.

Tip 1: Clear out the clutter
The only thing that belongs in your closet are clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories. Keeping your outfits together makes it easy to select clothes in the morning.

Organized Closet

Tip 2: If it doesn’t fit you now – put it away
When fit is on your side you will look fabulous no matter your age. Don’t leave clothes in your closet that you are ‘waiting to be able to fit into’. Pack them up or get rid of them.

Annamarie loved a necklace from my collection. She enjoyed the flexibility of using one accessory with a different looks.

Tip 3: Accessorize
Necklaces, earrings scarfs belts and shoes, finish off an outfit. Look through your stash and start using some of your great pieces. Remember shoes are an accessory, although necessary. Please look down at your feet. Are they getting the attention they deserve? Toss old, worn and uncomfortable shoes.
Tip 4: Make a list of what you need and Go Shopping!!
Create a list of everything you are missing in your wardrobe to make it easy to get ready each day. These should be items that are essential to your lifestyle.

Annamarie and Gail worked on a wardrobe check list with me to complete the process of “Having Fun In Your Closet”. We shopped with all the items in mind and completed their wardrobe for the season.

Accessories always finish an outfit. Gail looked through all her lovely accessories and I suggested which pieces would work with a variety of outfits.
