Take your medicine!

A stylist that takes her own advice - now that is someone to hire. I confess that I wait till the very last minute to get my esthetician to do my brow and lip wax service. I am such a baby when it comes to pain. I wait beyond the appropriate time to clean up my brows.

I went to Donna Beatrice at Elizabeth Grady this week in my soon to be stomping grounds of Beverly, MA - 53 Dodge Street Beverly, MA call for appointments at (978) 232-1110.

Trained with the Elizabeth Grady school she has been an esthetician and make up artist for 30 years.

Here is the true test - the next day I went to the new Lynnfield shopping area known as Market Street for a quick walk in mani-pedi service and the esthetician there noticed how great my brows looked and wanted to know who did them. The sign of a great service is when another service provider notices your "look" and takes the time to comment on it.

I clearly believe good grooming and keeping it maintained is one tool in your tool box of style. I just need to take a dose of my own medicine and keep my self on a regular schedule and deal with the pain of the service.  Such a small price to pay!

Keep brows and lips and chins looking clean and well groomed. Style starts and ends with details and having your smallest of details fine tuned contributes to your overall look and enhances any wardrobe you may be sporting for winter, spring summer or fall.

Tailoring and Alterations

Good people- another tip we will cover during my class is the need to have a great tailoring service for alterations. Not a good service provider but a great service provider.

If you have a good seamstress in your pocket (no pun intended) you can buy almost anything and make it work for your shape and size. This gets you to look beyond off the rack merchandise. You can now think about buying consignment, vintage and rock bottom priced sale items as the world opens itself up to you if you can alter a garment.

There are many many options for reuse of clothing. In the Boston area there are second hand stores, consignment stores, vintage boutiques, as well as on line purchasing off eBay or other auction sites. If you have a smart vision for a garment you can buy it and work with a tailor or seamstress to create miracles.

Two locals are Yelena Couture who recently relocated from the now defunct Atrium Mall in Chestnut Hill to the Mall at Chestnut Hill 199 Boylston Street
Yelena Yanovksy (617) 969-5330 can handle anything from bridal alterations to special tailoring.

Susana Jovenich formerly of Barneys Chestnut Hill is independent and west of Boston in Framingham call her direct for details (508) 877-7165

There are so many good vintage finds out there and second hand stores hold treasures sometimes never worn, tags still on the goods. Don't turn away an opportunity to reuse a fine garment because some alterations are needed.  Find yourself a great alterations specialist.
