Get a jump on your Fall Style with the Fall Style Challenge

It's been a year since I started doing the Style Challenges at GYPO and now I have a new wardrobe that is fashionable and easy to mix and match. I love it so much, I'm going to continue. I hope you'll join me and all the other great women. I encourage any woman who is feeling even a little insecure about her own style to check it out. You will get a list of pieces to pull from your closet or buy new and 21 daily out fit style sheets.

You'll be able to join a private Facebook group where all the fun happens as you make new style friends and compare your OOTD (outfit of the day). All the ladies are kind and encouraging. You'll also have access to a Pinterest board with more style ideas.

This is truly a life-enriching experience. You'll love it!

Enroll before 9/17 and save $20!

Hope to see you on the Facebook group. Christy

6 Reasons Women Writers Need a Personal Stylist

6 Reasons Women Writers Need a Personal Stylist

  1. If you work from home you may be guilty of spending the day in yoga pant or sweats.
  2. Dressing with style will make you feel like the professional writer you are.
  3. Writing is a solitary business and having friends who share your style interest will brighten your day.
  4. You'll never have to think up your Outfit Of The Day, let alone struggle with dressing your characters.
  5. You can go clothes shopping, get what you need without deliberation, and get back to writing.
  6. You'll be able to pack for that vacation, retreat, conference or research trip with ease.

Can't afford a Personal Stylist? You can afford a Virtual Personal Stylist!

All women deserve to have their own stylist. And if you're a stay at home writer you may need a little incentive to step out of those yoga pants or sweats and dress with style. It will make your day brighter and may even give you a push to write that elusive scene.

The Summer Challenge is open and I encourage any woman who is feeling uncertain about her style, wants to feel confident in her style and/or just loves to learn more about style and trend, to join. 

Join now while the Early Bird Registration is open 5/22 - 5/27.

I have been doing Alison Lumbatis' Style Challenges since last Fall and now I have a wardrobe I love, I'm proud of and I never have to guess what to wear in the morning.   

From Alison:

Imagine waking up every morning this summer knowing EXACTLY what you’re going to wear that day, walking into a closet full of mix and match on-trend pieces that you love. Better yet, having a summer capsule wardrobe that makes vacation packing a breeze. No more wandering around the mall not knowing what to buy. 
All the work is done for you!

I'm celebrating Spring and learning how to style...

My crabapple tree is blooming
Imagine waking up every morning knowing EXACTLY what you're going to wear that day, walking into a closet full of mix and match on-trend pieces that you love. No more wandering around the mall not knowing what to buy. That was me, for sure!

Now all the work is done for you!

If this sounds like a dream come true, then I can help that dream become a reality.

You love looking cute and put together, right? But sometimes you're not sure what to buy or how to pair it up. Maybe you're stuck in yoga pants or out of style, poor fitting clothes but aren't sure where to start to rebuild your wardrobe. That's were I was when I found the Style Challenges. Now I have more confidence when I go shopping and when I dress each morning. That's why I'm so excited to share this with you!

My friend and personal stylist Alison Lumbatis, the creator of Get Your Pretty On has just opened registration for her latest GYPO Style Challenge. The GYPO Style Challenge is a wildly popular virtual styling program where you get a shopping list of the latest seasonal trends along with 21 days of outfit combinations created from the list. You can pull items you already have in your closet or buy new. It's fun now to go shopping!

Here's a sample day from last year's Spring Challenge.

How cute is that? And so easy. I load screen shots of the daily outfits into my PhotoStream, then I can access them from my mobile devices. You can learn more here

Alison is passionate about helping other women get out of a style rut and feel pretty again. She offers affordable, accessible style programs to help women regain confidence and feel great about how they look.

The GYPO Style Challenge also includes a vibrant and extremely active Facebook community where women swap shopping and style tips and encourage and support each other. Most participants agree this is the best part of the challenge. It's so fun to check the Facebook group in the morning and see how all your 'friends' have styled the pieces they've gathered for the challenge. I've met stylin' ladies from all over the US, Canada and Europe!

If this sounds like fun to you, you can check it out here.

It's great fun! Take it from me, I just signed up and this will be my fifth style challenge. (I started with the Fall Challenge, then did the Work Wear Challenge, the Wardrobe Basics Challenge and the Winter/Holiday Challenge.)

Try it, it's so much fun… Christy
