Faux-Pas #5: Wearing your worn out heels. If you have worn your favorite pair of heels down to the nub so the metal spike is clacking on all surfaces, then it's time to take that beloved shoe to the cobbler OR buy a new pair. There is nothing worse then the sound of metal on pavement. Not to mention it will tear up your hard wood floors. So fix the heel cap or use this as an excuse to get a new pair!
Faux-Pas #4: Waiting to lose weight. I realize many of us are a few too many pounds from our ideal weight. But Ladies, here's the deal: when you dress for your body size and shape today, you will walk straighter (which gives the appearance of a slimmer physique). You will command a different presence. People will notice how you take care of yourself - how confident you look. This is no joke. It's time to stop waiting for the weight to shift before you start treating yourself like the sassy woman we all know you are. Dress well for your body size and shape today...I promise, with the new look, you will ride that wave of confidence into a nutrition class. Feeling this good will make you want to start a healthy diet and exercise program - I can say that with certainty, because my client's actually do it!
Faux-Pas #3: Stressing about what to wear in the morning. Eliminate the rush and feeling of "I have nothing to wear" every morning by planning what you are going to wear the night before. Make it part of your routine - don't forget to include 2 or 3 accessories, and put everything on one hanger. Or better still, hire Style By Wendy to create a Look-Book of 30 outfits with the clothes you already have - then you will never have to worry about what to wear again since an entire month is laid out for you!
Faux-Pas#2: Wearing yoga pants and a Lulu Lemon toplike it's an outfit. C'mon people. Workout clothes are workout clothes. Meant for the gym. Before Lulu, we wore sweatpants (think Rocky Balboa training outside). While I applaud the athletic industry for making a-go at fashion, these things are still meant to catch our sweat. Let's be realistic here...I'm not saying they are inappropriate for running to the grocery store last minute, or dropping your kids off at school but any other errands and it's just a painful sight. It takes the same amount of energy to put on a pair of jeans and Uggs to create a far more appropriate 'running errands' look and equally as comfortable. Enough said.
Faux-Pas #1: Hooded Sweatshirts. These puppies are meant for petting the cat, going to the gym or watching the game. Unless you are still in college, it's time to graduate into something less hoodie-like. Upgrade that sucker to a smart looking jacket or a cute sweater. You will appear much more of a sophisticate rather than looking like you came straight from working in your garage.
