Gillian Armour, Certified Master Stylist
What does it mean to dress well and how does one do it? Dressing well means knowing exactly what type of body you have and knowing exactly how to clothe it, maximizing and accentuating the positive aspects of it; nothing more, nothing less. But, how does one get this knowledge if not blessed with knowing it naturally? One consults professionals. That’s it – if you want to look your absolute best you must find the best to show you how.
Whole industries are built around this – Hollywood stylists are billed as the current “experts.” However, there are other experts more accessible to those of us not in the glamour loop of Hollywood. They can be found in Google under “Image Consultants.” Or, check out FSI’s directory of over 3000 consultants to find the best one for you.
You can also find good “Personal Shoppers” at the better department stores (for free) but I recommend that you find a “Personal Stylist“ interested in YOUR needs and who knows a thing or two about style and color. Their goal should be a well-dressed you. Sure, you will have to pay for this but consider it a one-time investment in yourself.
Think of all those times you bought clothing, accessories, makeup etc. that you seldom wore or used because, deep down, you knew they weren’t quite right for you. Stop wasting your time and your money. Invest in a good consultant and join the best dressed!!
