Doncaster Diary of Style

February Edition of Diary of Style

They say the weather will be getting better by the end of the week! Do you believe them? I do!!!

Generally, the weather starts to turn right around Valentine’s Day. That doesn’t mean that winter is OVER….but generally at this point the really terrible weather is done….or at the least it isn’t so severe…it doesn’t seem to last so long if a storm surfaces near by.

The days are getting a bit brighter, a little longer even…and generally things are looking up!

I like to say, WE LIVE IN WISCONSIN…IF WE ARE GOING TO SEE SPRING, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO WEAR IT!

So look thru your winter closet. Look for the black pieces…and freshen them up with some WHITE….instead of navy or black. Add some red, or some sunset or rose maybe? Maybe you can find some accessories that will pop some color with those favorite black pants? Or bring out the FABULOUS winter white suit…and add a pop of color to that?

Do you need more ideas? Contact me…or check out my blog!

January Edition of Diary of Style

Happy New Year! Everyone seems to agree … 2016 will be a banner year!!

Apparently for 2016, New Year’s resolutions are “Old Hat”! I have it on good authority! They say that by 1/17….anyone who did make a resolution is resigned to the fact that the impending change….it probably isn’t that important after all…and it probably isn’t going to happen!

So let’s decide to move forward in a more positive way. Do you know how we do that? We just decide to. We just make it a point to GET UP. DRESS UP. & SHOW UP.

Are you tired? Need a boost….but don’t really know how?? Or what? Give yourself permission to try a new look. Check out the fashion magazines. Think about it. Which look do you like? Which look do you think you might be able to embrace?

Still can’t decide? Then come see me! Together we will experiment with some new looks!

December Edition of Diary of Style

The Doncaster Fall/Winter 2015 collection is almost HISTORY! Is there one more thing you need from the current season?? A black pair of pants that you love? A sweater that you passed on, but now wonder….What Was I Thinking? If so…CALL ME! I will do my best to find it for you….if possible.

December is the time of year to be BOLD! Try something new! Ruby Red is the go to color for Holiday 2015. If you don’t have something that color in your wardrobe this is a good time to add it! Sparkle and Shine (from the inside out!) are the go to looks for this Christmastime.

Beyonce once said,
The most alluring quality a woman can have is confidence! Sometimes the best place to look for that confidence is right under your nose…in your closet! Do you need something NEW to enhance your confidence?

MERRY CHRISTMAS from me & my family….to you & yours!

IT’S COMING!
DONCASTER SPRING 2016!
@ WCW 1/20 – 1/23

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

November Edition of Diary of Style

I am a Lucky Woman!

It’s November…all ready! It’s time for me to turn my attention to turkey, stuffing, apple pie and gravy! Polish the silver, decorate the tables….and prepare for the company! I know what I’m going to wear…do you?

I am thankful for a wonderful family, husband, children that we love, siblings that we don’t see enough of, a host of in-laws…and even the outlaws! And a thriving Doncaster business that keeps me out of trouble…at least most of the time! I am grateful for the friends and clients that appreciate the product that I represent and the experience that I bring to my business.

As you are sorting out your closet and thinking about where you are going and what you are going to wear think about this…show your world that you respect yourself by dressing well. Your accessories?? The best accessory? Your smile!! It’s even better with RED LIPS! 🙂

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

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!

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!
