Life ~ Simplified an L&S Company

Part of any personal fashion style is being confident and organized.

Over the past year, my business partner Sheila C. Connor and I have come into more than a few lives and helped organize and wardrobe. If you have not yet experienced our service offerings let Life ~ Simplified (an L&S Company) simplify your life this year.

We can help with the organization of your wardrobe and your closet space with a service that will suit your lifestyle and the season. Life ~ Simplified service offerings are priced at $125.00/hour.

We are available to assist you with services such as a per hour service call inside your closet. As we look inside your existing wardrobe we advise, purge and organize to streamline your closet. We can help you to fine tune your existing wardrobe. In a typical session we get an interesting peek at what is in your closet and create new looks with what you own, go on a shopping spree with us inside your own closet.

Outside of your closets, we are always on hand for a personal shopping service date. We take you on a shopping adventure. Our goal is to work with you to create something totally new (that may be a bit out of your comfort zone) and be able to add at least one great seasonal piece to your current wardrobe. Contact us to arrange an appointment.

Hot news about my own personal style is that I am going back to Silver – Gray hair. I have been using hair color since the early 1980s. I gave up the chasing your original hair color game around 2002 and grew my hair out into beautiful, natural silver. When I returned to the colorist in 2005 (under peer pressure) I knew that color made me look 'younger'. However, the care and feeding to maintain the once true Lisa's hair color was simply too time consuming and too expensive. Too many chemicals as well. I know I will be given much mixed opinion on my new/old look the Silver Wear, the Silver Fox, and the White Hot Mama. I prefer the Platinum Lady and I believe that it is less about age and more about an attitude of confidence, which I will be sporting this year during 2008.
