Are Ready to Make this Year YOUR Year to Look & Feel Fabulous?
You feel outdated. Your clothes don't reflect who you are or where you’re headed in your life anymore. You want clothes that reflect your personality, support your lifestyle, and flatter your coloring.
Your body is changing and you’re not getting any younger, so you’re confused about what's best for you now more than ever.
You hate to shop because you don't know what looks good on you, and you end up buying the same boring things destined to become orphans in your closet.
Your closet is overflowing; however, none of it makes you happy. There are items in there that you haven’t worn in 5 years, but you’re still hanging on.
You want to look current, but you’re not sure how to get there.
You want to stop feeling guilty about the clothes you spent good money on, and don’t wear.
You want to rebuild your wardrobe, but don’t know how to develop a style that says, “This is me!”
You are ready to look amazing, feel confident, and be admired.
If so, then you’ve come to the right place, and I’m so glad you’re here.
“Working with Marion has been such a joy. As a minister, now retired from the pulpit, but still giving Sunday talks and performing ceremonies, I had been working with looks that didn’t fully integrate both my outgoing personality and the integrity and peaceful power I want to convey; with Marion’s coaching, I now feel my professional wardrobe feels like me and projects what I want to project. She has led me to some wonderful clothing lines that complement my 62-year-old-pear-shape physique, affirming me all the way, and supporting me to get out of my comfort zone where appropriate.
I have also observed Marion’s work with other individuals in the many classes of hers I’ve attended—which are fun, chock-full of useful information, and fast-paced. Marion is patient, supportive, and gracious, really listening to her clients/students to see what they want, what they are ready for, and what they may not be ready for. She is highly skilled and highly respectful. Anyone who works with Marion will feel better about themselves!! I am so grateful to count myself among her clients and friends.”
—Liz Mirante, Minister
Hi, I’m Marion Gellatly, and people say I’m one of the premier wardrobe and Certified Image Masters for today’s savvy woman.
I love working with women who are going through some kind of transition in their personal life, their relationships, their profession. They want to feel joyful, feel beautiful, and be authentically confident walking into a meeting with an important client, heading to speak in front of an audience, arriving for a final interview, or enjoying lunch with a group of friends. Yes, Confidence Matters!
If you’re like the hundreds of women and men I've had the good fortune to teach and coach in my practice, you're probably still struggling with your style and wardrobe. I understand... I was once there myself! It’s not something we’re taught in school. But, through years of education, experience and lots of trial and error, I've come to understand why so many women lament..."I have a closet full of clothes yet NOTHING to wear!" My own experience of finding my personal style not only fueled my image consulting practice – it has also been the inspiration to forever change your experience of Style.
I was a curly-headed little girl with lots of thick hair. My hair has always been my signature. I was the first born, loved by my parents and grandparents. But as I matured something happened. I was a wise adolescent with a critical eye… and as my body began to change at age 12, I became very self-conscious. I looked in the mirror, and didn’t like what I saw. My body was bigger than many of my friends. I compared myself to them and didn’t like that I was curvy and a little pudgy, certainly more so than my athletic-bodied friends.
At age 14 my love of style and fashion developed. I loved to shop. I worked on weekends at my Dad’s small-town drug store, and every lunch hour I spent my time, and sometimes my paycheck, at the women’s dress shop next store. So often, however, I came out of the dressing room with nothing. I’d try on a pile of clothes, look in the mirror, and struggle with my busty, curvy shape. I even joined Weight Watchers thinking that was the solution, but realized my curves simply were not going away. Being self-conscious became my normal. I could have decided not to care, but I did. What teenager doesn’t? Because I loved fashion and style, I spent a lot of time figuring out how to dress the body I had and deal with the Mediterranean genetics of my family.
Over the last 20+ years, I have spent a lot of my work week in dressing rooms or closets with nearly naked women. I’ve heard and seen a lot, and I’ve learned so much from them. I understand them. As I taught style principles, I learned them for myself. I learned how to dress my curves and my full bust and my out-of-balance proportions. I realized how many negative thoughts went through my mind because I heard them in my clients’ confessions. I decided to change them using the style principles I teach.
I became more satisfied buying less, but finding the right things for me, and finding more fulfillment in creating new outfits in my closet which has saved me a lot of time and money on shopping. I became more confident. More stylish. Happier in the many times each day I would look in the mirror or think about how I look. More confident in myself, my essence, and in my beauty. Which is how I know I can do it for you too.
After working privately with hundreds of clients, I decided I wanted to make a difference for hundreds more, maybe even thousands. So, I developed my program, What to Wear…Virtual Style School for Savvy Women like you.
Some highlights and case studies include:
“Marion understands and has a vision for what looks best on you. She picked out of items for me that I would never have looked at had I been shopping on my own. She has shown me how to work with colors and accessories and every item in my wardrobe now mixes and matches. Marion also guided me on where to focus my spending. She explained which key pieces are investments and worth spending more money on and which were not. I now have a wonderful wardrobe that suits my lifestyle, my personality, and my body. I receive compliments about how professional and put-together my outfits look!”

“Thank you Marion! Your easy to watch videos and downloadable work books really helped me to grow in my knowledge and confidence of what my own style could be.
More than anything I really appreciated your generosity and patience with imparting your style expertise and knowledge. I loved the Q&A calls and really enjoyed how you made it personal to each participant! It was great to be able to ask you specific questions while you could see me, like when you taught me what the length of my necklace should be in proportion to my bangs! I gained so much benefit from hearing other participant’s questions and seeing their style progress as well.
This is a fabulous course and I recommend it to everyone. Whether you think you know a lot about style or whether you know very little this course can impart new wisdom and take you to a whole new level!”

“Marion helped me feel so much more satisfied with the way I look and dress, she has given me many unexpected ‘pearls,’ and she has brought so much FUN to the process!
I kept buying the same things over and over. I had a closet full of clothes with not much to wear and didn’t know what the problem was. Marion helped me get my colors right for the current me and to understand what looks good on me now—versus my 30-year old body—in a kind and tactful manner. She also helped me identify the problems in my closet and eliminate them, including my own ‘muffin top,’ without losing any weight. The most important thing of all was helping me develop a style recipe—this has been the Holy Grail for me. Without it, I never really understood what to buy that would ultimately make me happy in my own clothes.”
