Here we are at the official start of summer! It is June 20th for those of us who think the summer is flying by. I must say it feels as though we are headed into a hot season – be prepared to look your best and stay COOL at the same time. Being born and raised in San Diego, I admit that I love the beach and the sun, and I can tell you that the best fashion item we should own during the summer months is SUNBLOCK. Be certain to apply it before you put on your clothes, as we can change your fashion over time, but no image in the world can change the potential we have of skin cancer caused by over exposure to the sun. Not to mention, we don’t want to look like old leather slippers because we spent years baking in the sun.
Fall fashion may not be something any of us are thinking about but, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale makes it difficult not to at least mention it. This is a fabulous pre-fall sale on some incredible pieces for your wardrobe. This event has become legendary among Nordstrom customers nationwide who enjoy outstanding savings on the most exciting new fall merchandise before the season starts.’ The sale will begin on July 20th, but if you would like to book a private appointment with MODA, we can begin shopping behind the tents on July 11th. We have our own private dressing rooms and will pull the best merchandise for you before you arrive. While you may not buy your entire fall wardrobe during the sale, there are definitely going to be some pieces that can be show stopping additions to your wardrobe for years to come and all marked down to 30% and more. The picture is from a previous sale – the bag is $265 on sale and $398 after sale – WOW!
Please email or call today with any questions and to book your appointment during the VIP access week of the sale. This will be first come, first serve.
On a personal note, if you have children at home for the summer, spend some quality time with them. Cookouts, ball games, zoo trips and mini-vacations are great. Moments with family are so precious and our greatest investment is in our family and the relationships we build with cousins, aunt, uncles, grandparents and neighbors. Just do not get lazy and look like last year’s rag pile while attending the cookouts and events. Look your best because the world is watching, and the image you project needs to reflect your character and the respect you have for yourself and your audience. Your “Personal and Professional Brand” is your statement to the world, and everyone is just one photograph away from being a worldwide sensation.
So smile this summer, stay cool, focus on family and take advantage of every opportunity to improve the caliber of your life and the lives of those around you. Consultations are always complimentary!
Summer is a tough time of year when it comes to being fashionable. Light weight fabric and softer color is the answer in most cases. Instead of a black suit, choose a grey or white fabric…Most companies, large and small, have a dress code for the summer months. Common summer misatkes include sandals, see through fabric, visible sweat (wear an undershirt), unmanicured toes and unprofessional fabric (too loose). It is possible to be professional and cool – let us help you maneuver these hot months!
Summer parties are so much fun, but they are no excuse to grab a t-shirt. Linen blends are available in every shape and color for men…and dresses for the ladies are the perfect, cool alternative to shorts which can be very uncomfortable once you get too hot.
Choose to be a knock out in bright colors and fashionable sandals.
Orange, yellow, pink, turqoise…whichever color you choose to wear, do it boldly. Every outfit should have something to talk about. A python bag and shoes (See picture on right), orange belt, color blocking fun and jewelry that makes a statement when you walk into a room. Summer is all about color – let’s put some spice back into your step by adding a bit of fun into your wardrobe.
