October Edition of Diary of Style

More Traveling….!

When was the last time you were on an airplane? Well, we find ourselves traveling a lot this Fall….much more than usual! And generally speaking our fellow travelers look TERRIBLE!

I’m not complaining because they aren’t wearing Doncaster…..I’m complaining because they look like they are going to clean out the garage!! Or Mow the lawn!! Men in bad shorts….sandals….with socks??!! Really Fellas!!?? Women in bad black pants…..and a Packers jersey!! Really!? I’m not kidding!!

When did it become ok to let ourselves take a dive….because it was too hard to get ourselves dressed!! If you have stooped that low….or more likely know someone that has….take heart…and come see me!! I can introduce you to some great looks….looks that are lovely, comfortable, wearable and classic! You will look great…and feel even better!

Remember, Get Up. Dress Up. & Show Up!

September Edition of Diary of Style

Be Empowered! Dress Well! Wear Doncaster!

Do you have a power suit? Your power suit is that look that you just love to wear! That look that you know looks fine, takes you where you need to go,and you feel confident that people will believe what you tell them! Generally speaking, the women that I know, and call my friends and clients, are women that are very good at what they do, and really all they want is for people to consider them credible. If you look like you know what you are talking about…there is every chance your audience will believe what you say! It’s really that simple.

I have a new power suit for this season! I have worn it twice now, each time I had compliments all day long, and now I can’t wait to wear it! Not because I feel I have to wear a suit, but because I WANT to wear my NEW suit!

Maybe YOU need a new suit?

August Edition of Diary of Style

I saw a statistic the other day that I found so alarming! They say that 60% of adult American women are unhappy/disatisfied with their bodies! I hope that you find that alarming too!

Ladies, we are the leaders and mentors for the future generation of girls!! We have to do better than this….even if it’s just for them! They look up to us! They look to us for how we solve our problems, how we manage our business, how we work and how we play. They especially look to us for how we will age….as we move into our senior years.

I suggest we show them that we might not do everything we used to do, but we do what we can do well! How can we do that? We will…

Get Up. Dress Up. Show Up.
And we will Never Give Up!

We will make it a point to dress well…and accentuate the positive! Reluctant? Come see me. I’ll show you how!

Doncaster Diary of Style

June Edition of the Diary of Style

Hello Friends!

Be Kind….to YOURSELF!

I recently saw something on Facebook that reminded me….

Be Kind. You never know what the next person you meet is dealing with.
So be kind…No kinder to each other.

All of us have something that we don’t like about our bodies. We are too big, we are too small…we are too old, so we don’t like our hair…our wrinkles….there is always SOMETHING! Instead of agonizing over the negatives….why not spend that energy on how to better accentuate the positive!?! Don’t wear those old clothes that make you feel tired and old!! Get rid of those old black pants that are itchy, too long, too short….they just don’t feel good any more! Find some great new things that make you feel that you can ROCK YOUR WORLD!

IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE FINDING CLOTHES LIKE THAT….CALL ME!

Doncaster Diary of Style

May Edition of the Diary of Style

Hello Friends!

Make it a point! Make it a point to surround yourself with people, places and things that make you feel GOOD!

Make it a point…to surround yourself with people that are positive! Those people that make YOU feel better just because you are around them! And likewise….lose the suckers!! Those people that suck all the energy right out of your veins!

Make it a point…to go to places that you like. Places that improve your outlook! Beautiful spaces. Places where you feel comfortable…and appreciated! Frequent them! And share them with your friends!

Make it a point…to surround yourself with the things you love! Those things that hold a special place in your heart. Those beautiful things that give you good vibes…..that have sentimental value to you! Those things that make your heart sing!

Last Chance to see Spring/Summer 2015!

Doncaster Diary of Style

April Edition of the Diary of Style

Hello Friends!

Here in Wisconsin it seems like we might actually be seeing the first signs of SPRING 2015! If you have bought some new things for Spring…get them out of the closet and wear them!!

Why do we save our new things? We go out and buy beautiful new things that we LOVE, go home, and put them in the back of the closet! And SAVE them?! And go on and continue wearing the same old, same old! Whaaaat??

This is a great time to clean out/sort out your closet. The intention should be to separate from our old clothes…especially the ones you don’t wear often. Bring that garment to the front of the closet, maybe 3 garments at a time…..and make a point to wear it. You will quickly decide if you like those old favorites as much as the new things. If you take the pants off because they are too long, too short…put them directly into the shopping bag on the floor and give them to somebody that can really USE them!

Wear them in good health … and wear them often!!

Doncaster Diary of Style

March Edition of the Diary of Style

Hello Friends!

Life is more fun when you get dressed up!
So… Get Up. Dress Up. Show Up. …and MAKE something happen!

Kim Miselnicky is a young woman, a Doncaster Stylist, that I met recently. Out of the blue, she sent me a package of notes and paper work that I had shared with her months ago. Of course I had forgotten all about that! Then this package showed up on my door step! Imagine my surprise!?

On the outside of the envelope it read: Life is more fun when you get dressed up!

And I thought … it’s true! It was Sunday AM, all I wanted was to stay in my bathrobe all day! But instead I thought, Kim is right! It’s much more fun to get dressed up … so I did! And I accomplished a LOT! Do you know someone that would like to join us at Doncaster? Let us know!

Life is more fun when you get dressed up!
