It's not 1992. We should all be reminded of that. Image consultant Scarlett De Bease is a master when it comes to advice about personal style and what should be in our wardrobes. Sometimes that advice is a reminder that what looked good on us in 1992 (or 2002 or 2012, for that matter, and yes we looked FABULOUS) doesn't deserve to take up space in our closets (or our minds) in 2021. According to Scarlett, achieving personal style and wardrobe confidence doesn't mean going out and buying new clothes. What does it mean? Watch our chat below!

Scarlett's #WIPMondays tip:
You hereby have permission:
Full truth: My closet includes two embarrassingly large stacks of pants and skirts that don't fit me anymore. I used to be thinner. So there. I'm going to take Scarlett's advice: box them up and get them out of the closet. I know what looks good on me. Why keep the stuff that doesn't?
What we're reading:
Scarlett has stocked up on business-oriented books during the pandemic. Her current reads include You Are a Badass, by Jen Sincero (which I just purchased last week!), and The Middle Finger Project, by Ash Ambirge. I love that these both address self-doubt and embracing personal strengths and potential. Not that I have impostor syndrome, or anything 😳. Personally, I'm reading fiction: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, by V.E. Schwab—gorgeous prose and so discussable! A girl makes a bad deal with the dark side and her wish for "freedom" leads to an immortality in which no one she meets remembers her after she leaves their sight. I think you can't go wrong with any of these picks.
