Look & Feel Fabulous in 2019!

“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world…Fashion is instant language.”

~Miuccia Prada

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Your clothes don’t feel like you; they make you feel outdated. Times change, but your style hasn’t followed suit. Your closet depresses you because it’s filled with clothes that no longer reflect who you are or where you’re headed in life.

  • Your body is changing, and you’re not getting any younger. What’s the best look for you right now? What clothes and accessories will tell the world you’re still happening…that you have it together?

  • 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. Isn’t it time to love shopping again?

  • Your closet is overflowing, but nothing in there makes you happy. You might even be hanging on to pieces that you haven’t worn in five years. It’s so hard to part with things you have, but It doesn’t have to be that way.

  • You want to look and feel current, with the right amount of hip. But how do you get there? The styles on the mannequins make you feel impossibly … puffy. Maybe even old.

  • You feel guilty about spending good money on clothes, but then never wearing them. Are those skinny mirrors in the dressing rooms, or what?!

  • You’re ready to look amazing, feel confident, and show the world the best of who you are! It’s 2019, baby! You want clothes that reflect your personality, support your lifestyle, and flatter your body and coloring.

Is that you? If so, then allow me to introduce myself.

 
 
 

Hi, I’m Marion Gellatly.

w2w_marion_hello.jpg

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 struggling with your style and wardrobe. I understand. I was once there myself! They don’t teach style and wardrobe development in school, which is why so many women lament…

"I have a closet full of clothes yet NOTHING to wear!"

  • Over the last 20+ years, I’ve spent hundreds of hours in dressing rooms or client closets with nearly naked women. In they go, a bit excited, a bit scared, and by the time our session is done, out they come, feeling stylish, confident, and happy to share their essence and beauty with the world.

  • Looking amazing, feeling confident, and showing the world the best of who you are is easy when you speak the language of fashion—in other words, when you discover which brands, clothes, and accessories reflect your personality, support your lifestyle, and flatter your body and coloring.

  • My program, What to Wear…Virtual Style School for Savvy Women, will help you do just that. Virtual Style School is part course, part coaching. It’s a chance for you to get personalized feedback on your own and new wardrobe in a safe space. It’s a place where I’ll help you learn to speak YOUR language, convey YOUR personality, and feel confident as you project the image YOU want to show the world.

  • Read on to hear from a few of my clients, and to find out what Virtual Style School is all about. I’m so glad you’re here, and hope to get the opportunity to build a beautiful, practical wardrobe together.

Meet Client Liz Mirante

“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.

Marion really listened to me to understand what I want, and what I was ready for. She is highly skilled and respectful. Anyone who works with Marion will feel better about themselves!!”

—Liz Mirante, Minister

MEET CLIENT CHRISTY HILL

“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!”

My Style Story

When did you first become self-conscious? I was 12 years old when I started not to like what I saw in the mirror. My body was changing. It was bigger than my friends’ bodies and curvier too.

At 14 my love of style and fashion started to develop. I worked weekends at my Dad’s small-town drug store, which happened to be next door to a dress shop. I spent many lunch hours there, trying on clothes, struggling with my busty, curvy shape. I joined Weight Watchers thinking losing weight was the answer. But my curves wouldn’t go away. Being self-conscious became the norm for me. And I never stopped trying to dress the body I had—a good thing, for sure!

I eventually learned to dress my curves, full bust, and out-of-balance proportions, and realized how many negative thoughts I held through the years. I became more satisfied buying less clothing and greatly fulfilled by creating new beautiful outfits. I also saved a lot of time, not to mention a lot of money, on shopping!

And that’s who I am today. I’m confident. Stylish. Happy when I look in the mirror. Appreciative of my unique beauty and essence even with my busty, curvy shape.

Today, my passion is helping women like you experience the same amazing transformation!

She helped me develop a ‘style recipe’ which has become my Holy Grail. Without it, I never really understood what to buy that would ultimately make me happy in my own clothes.”

Frequently-Asked Questions

When do I receive the modules, including the bonus module?

Each week’s module is delivered on Saturday morning, giving you time to review the materials over the weekend, instead of during your busy work week.  The modules, including the bonus, are delivered in sequential order (one per week), as each module’s content builds on the previous one.

How long do I have to work through the modules?

You have access to the the modules for six months. You can always add on more time if you need it for a small fee.

When are the live calls?

The live calls happen each week on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. Pacific time. Although I highly encourage you to attend the live calls if you can, I understand that life happens. No worries; I record each live Zoom call and upload it to the program portal within 24 hours. You receive the greatest benefit by participating in the live calls but can still learn from the recordings by listening to the questions of others and hearing the feedback I give.

If I miss the calls, will I still have a way to get your feedback during the program?

Yes, you can connect with me through the program’s private Facebook group.  There, you can talk to me and others, ask questions, and post photos of items or looks for which you want feedback or advice. You also benefit by hearing others’ questions and the advice I give.

I’m overweight and hate shopping for clothes. Will this program still work for me?

Yes, the program absolutely works for every woman, no matter weight, size, or age. You learn the five all-important elements that will create the best look for who you are today.

I’m not really into the latest fashions and designer clothes. Will this program still work for me?

Absolutely, this program is about developing your style, not being a fashionista.  It’s not about adopting fashion trends or expensive designer clothing.  Style is an expression of your personality and a way to identify yourself to others. The style you develop during the program will become your natural way of dressing.

I can’t afford a new wardrobe. How much will I have to spend on new clothes?

I can’t give you a definite answer.  It could be very little depending on the current condition of what’s in your closet.  It could be as simple as putting new outfit combinations together from what you already own. However, if there’s little in your closet that you love, it may require an investment in foundational basics, or “star” pieces that bring a bland wardrobe to life.

How much do you think I can save on clothes after taking this program?

You can save A LOT, because you no longer waste money on things you won’t wear. The fabulously styled and confident new you will shop with purpose, buy the best you can afford, make smart choices on your budget, and get very clear on the “cost-per-wear” shopping formula. Besides, can you really put a price on catching your eye in the mirror and thinking, “Dang! You look great!

When does the program start?

Our Orientation Call to get started is Thursday, February 28 at 5:30 p.m. We’ll get started then. You’ll receive call-in instructions beforehand.
