“Style is a tool of confidence.” It’s time to make your style a priority. We all want to get ready in the morning by easily finding the clothes in our closet that make us feel great. That’s why Mary Lou Andre, Style Expert for 25 years is back on the show to bust the style 7 myths that prevent us from feeling our best when we head out the door. I love how Mary Lou has us ask “Who we are today?” We need to dress for the life we currently live and update our clothes to reflect that. It’s so easy to have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear and it’s time to change that. If you love learning about fashion and style, or your sense of style has changed, or you just want to understand an easy way to get organized around looking your best, this interview is for you.
