Introduction: Visual art is my passion, in high school I took 4 years of art classes and learned sketching and watercolors, but didn’t become an artist. I moved to US from Russia in 1992 and lived on a dime. I quickly learned to wear the donated or thrift store clothes with grace. I graduated from a beauty school and worked as a hair stylist – this was one application of my creativity, personal styling is another.
I was an image consultant first to myself and was rewarded with compliments on my outfits (which cost me fractions from the prices paid at high end stores). Then I was dressing my daughter and taught her on flattering styles and color coordination, the most satisfaction I got from dressing my aging relatives, it is not too difficult to look good when you are young – being older and having changed body requires an effort to maintain a good look. Then I assisted my friends, we are not getting younger either, but we can get smarter about our outfits and accessories and about the unspoken message we are sending to people around us.
