Well, here we are at the end of another
year. I hope you had a good one! I also hope you're not too stressed
out in this week before Christmas?!
The good news is it's not long to go before
it's too late to worry about what hasn't been done yet! I find that no
matter how organized I think I'm going to be I'm always stressed this
week before Christmas. Then the day's here and there's no point in
stressing about what didn't get done!

What Are You Wearing to Festive
Have you thought about what you will be
wearing on Christmas Day yet? And for other Christmas social occasions?
If you spend about half an hour in your wardrobe identifying the
clothes and accessories you will wear to each of the social activities
you know are coming up it will help you feel calmer and more organized
in one aspect at least.
Plan to choose outfits that flatters your...
- Body shape
Also make sure it's suitable for the
occasion - think of the venue, the people you'll be with, the time of
day and the level of formality.
Make sure you try the outfit on with the
accessories you plan to wear, especially if you haven't worn that
outfit for a while. You don't want to find out it doesn't fit, isn't
clean, or needs repairing right before your event is about to start!
I'll wear on
- A cocktail dress works well for more
formal evening occasions
- For smart casual evening events a maxi
dress, or dark flowing pants with a glittery top will work well
This is what I'll be wearing this year on
Christmas Day. (Please excuse the terrible photo, but I hope

and even shoes.
However, if you're worried about choosing
an accessory that will be liked and used you need to understand a bit
about the person and how
to choose an accessory.
Another great option is to look for gift certificates,
this can be for accessories, books, or pretty much anything. Online
gift certificates are particularly useful if the gift recipient doesn't
live near you and you want them to have the gift for Christmas. Or
perhaps you can't get to the stores or you can't find the items you're
looking for locally.
I offer gift
certificates for all my services.
Other ideas include ebooks such as "Your Personal Style Formula" ebook
