This month’s Style Makeover winner is Christi. Christi is a mom to a college-aged daughter. Like most moms with adult children, she found herself wondering who she was and felt ready to reinvent herself. We helped her define her fashion style to match who she is on the inside.
For some tips on how you can start to match who you are on the inside with the clothing you are wearing on the outside, check back in a few weeks! I’ll post a FREE DOWNLOAD tool to help you determine YOUR personal style!

There seems to be a lot of buzz these days about this thing called a ‘Capsule Wardrobe‘. Apparently it is supposed to make your life infinitely easier. For those of you who have tried to implement this tactic into your wardrobe, you’ll agree it can cause more stress than ease!
What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
This is simply a method of building a wardrobe. Using the right color palate (where everything goes together), a specific number of pieces are added to create limitless looks. Ideally, a ‘Capsule Wardrobe” will have fewer number of clothes, with great number of outfits.
Our Head Fashion Guru, Kathy Friend has written several blog posts on this topic you might find helpful.

Last week, you saw how Joni was able to figure out what her style was with her Ambush Style Makeover. We helped her think about what details in clothing and outfits she likes and matched that theme with her personality.
This is ‘THE’ thing that troubles so many women, and seems to be at the crux of the “I have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear” syndrome. How do you match what you LIKE in outfits, with clothing that really shows who you are? So many times our closet is filled with pieces we really don’t like, or pieces that don’t reflect who we are.
Why does this happen? Well, I believe it is because as life goes on and changes, our shopping habits don’t change…but our taste in things does (and dare I say our personality changes as we mature). If we always seem to buy black pants and white tops, it’s hard for us to see (let alone try-on) anything but black pants and white tops. Defining WHAT you like is a good step in the right direction in helping you to notice all of the other options when you shop.
Seems easy enough, doesn’t it? Well to help make it even easier for you, I’m offering a FREE download quiz that will help you FIND YOUR STYLE! Just click HERE to download your printable Style Quiz.
Let us know what YOUR style is!
p.s. Remember to take those things out of your closet that aren’t your style and donate them to your local Goodwill Store
WE ARE LOOKING FOR OUR NEXT AMBUSH MAKEOVER WINNER!
It’s that time again! We are looking to find someone who would love some help with their style with our Goodwill Ambush Makeover team!
The winner will get a few hours of personalized style advice with our Fashion Guru, Kathy Friend and her team of style experts. Then they will go with you to either a local Goodwill store to choose an outfit, or you MIGHT be chosen for a VIP experience in the fashion show room at the Goodwill corporate office!
Does this sound like something you would love to experience?
Rachel is a typical 30-something Mom.
She has spent so much time over the past few years being a Mom, she’s forgotten what her style is.
She wants to look cute and sassy, but it seems the things she adds to her wardrobe only add to the confusion. Random shopping has caused her to spend a lot of money, and end up with a closet full of clothes she doesn’t like.
We took Rachel through a very simple process of figuring out what her style is, and creating a great outfit at a Michiana Goodwill Store…for a fraction of the price she had been spending on new outfits!
See how we did it here!
