I have been asked why I’m not doing HOW TO DRESS posts (I’m not even going to put an age here, find it unnecessary!)….when I began nenasnotes a year ago it was my intention not to do make-overs, street fashion, and most certainly no selfies!!!!  By now you know my background is retail and dressing clients on a regular basis, which I still do along with closet cleansing, personal shopping and general “how to pull yourself together” physically, not emotionally, but don’t they go hand in hand, I tend to think so.  Dressing well is not an age, size, gender nor need it be economically challenging.

Since this question is coming up more often I thought it might be interesting to take a poll and see what you would like me to do.  I would do make-overs or suggested ways to dress and do make-up, hair, etc. once or twice a month.  I have a couple of thoughts on how to do these posts with a twist.  I would be most appreciative of your comments….yay or nay….use the comment area below to let me know your thoughts or you can answer me on Facebook or Linkedin.   I am most appreciative of your support, thank you!

    I would gladly welcome some fashion tips on closet-cleaning, make-overs, trends and whatever you please. You have such a wide range of knowledge about so many things and write so well. Toss in some travel too. My least favorite are Books — often too long and one-sided.

    • nenasnotes November 8, 2017 / 2:01 pm

      Thanks Abra. I appreciate your suggestions. Interesting your thoughts on books, it is one of my most follows posts.

  6. Christina November 8, 2017 / 2:15 pm

    I am all for the new twist.

    • nenasnotes November 8, 2017 / 2:27 pm

  7. Ariana Erickson November 8, 2017 / 2:38 pm

    • nenasnotes November 8, 2017 / 3:08 pm

      Thanks so much…..done and done….

  8. Donna de St. Aubin November 8, 2017 / 2:51 pm

    Yes please. This help is always appreciated!

    • nenasnotes November 8, 2017 / 3:07 pm

      Thank you seems to be the consensus of opinion….stay tuned!!!

  9. Pat Smith November 8, 2017 / 3:43 pm

    I would love it! Don’t forget those of us who always cover our arms and that little “bump” at the back of our neck.

    • nenasnotes November 8, 2017 / 3:50 pm

      Thanks, most ladies have a problem with their upper arms no matter their age. It shall be addressed. Little bump at back of neck has not been a concern that I have heard…I’ll put it on my list.

  10. Mary Ann November 8, 2017 / 3:50 pm

    Nena – I’d love to see you do make-overs. Or even “mini make-overs” … taking a look and making a small change to make it “work” or “better.”

    • nenasnotes November 8, 2017 / 4:05 pm

      Thanks Mary Ann…it is, so far, unanimous. Now to put it into action. Have some thoughts on how to do the concept with a twist!!!!

    Yes, please do this! I would love to hear your advice on how to incorporate different trends of the moment while maintaining an overall classic or timeless personal style. Also, every girl could use guidance on a good closet purge… what to toss and what to keep?

    • nenasnotes November 9, 2017 / 3:03 am

      Done and done!!!!!!!!

  13. Carla Smith November 9, 2017 / 1:44 pm

    Why not? It will be interesting to get your take.

    • nenasnotes November 9, 2017 / 2:36 pm

      Thanks Carla…seems to be the consensus of opinion. Now to put my spin on it!!

  14. Heather Taylor November 20, 2017 / 3:41 am
