The start of every new year brings with it a desire for all things new including fashion. Style trends, by definition can be very temporary and difficult to know which ones to pay attention to and which ones to steer clear of.

Hopefully this will bring some fresh inspiration and new focus for things you already have in your wardrobe.

I recently had the opportunity to share some widely applicable tips for how to dress the part for a job interview on a local morning show called 'Portland Today'.

We all have them in our closet, those items that are awesome on so many levels and yet something just seems...off. Maybe you were excited about certain aspects when you bought it and now you reach to put it on, look in the mirror and then take it off and hang it up again.

Let me tell you how I did it...
From the first few minutes of our “Sort” session, I could tell that Alison was going to bring a breath of fresh air to something that I loathed. She thoughtfully looked at each existing item and breathed new life into many of them – some needed to go and she was respectful about that process. And she was so right!
Yes, my whole outlook on clothes changed! I now know what types of clothing work well together and how to accessorize accordingly. The tips I remember most often are "sometimes less is more" and "you can dress up or down any outfit". I went from not knowing how to look cute, to feeling attractive and confident wearing my clothes!

She helped me put together great outfits that fit my body type and my personal style. She went shopping with me and helped me identify the items that would make the most impact on my wardrobe for the best value.
