Happy weekend peeps! I hope this finds you enjoying your weekend and psyched once again to look 10 pounds lighter instantly! This is one of those tips that will work for anyone regardless of your weight. And fellow short girls, you’re going to love this tip!
Tip#3: Find That Hidden Wedge.
The Hidden Wedge? What am I talking about? Well, last year I was looking at pair of Uggs for our annual holiday trip to Jackson Hole and kept thinking how dumpy I looked in them. Then I happened upon a pair online that had a hidden wedge (and a zipper ~ha!) and thought why not?
I’m not exaggerating when my women friends kept saying “Have you lost weight?” That comment was usually followed by “Your legs look so long; what have you been doing to workout?” Even my “Pilates Possy” kept asking me what I was doing and where they could get them! I wore them so much that I literally wore them out. Hence, no picture and unfortunately, Uggs no longer makes them. 😦
Not to be deterred, I’ve combed the web and curated 3 different pairs of hidden wedges for you that can be on your doorstep next week. Each are spectacular in their own right (and they don’t cost as much).
1. Nine West Tall Boot:
http://amzn.to/1FzEEMr I love that you can get them in any color and even suede. The zipper in the back not only makes for easy on & off but also really gives it an expensive look.
2. Enzo Tall Boot :
http://amzn.to/1Kdz08f These are simple and chic. Always a recipe for great personal style! You can wear them with anything.
3. ANNA Ankle Bootie:
http://amzn.to/1K0dsdY We all know that ankle booties are everywhere this season and this might be my favorite of the season.They are faux leather and have a rubber sole so no stains or slipping. And that clasp! I swear it makes it look like they are made by Givenchy or Celine! I’m thinking of ordering these in black and brown as I know they will go fast!
I’d love to hear your thoughts below and see you in a picture of hidden wedges looking ever so tall and lean.
And always remember ~ You’re Never Stuck!

Welcome back peeps and Happy Labor Day weekend!
Our last post was such a resounding success that we continue our series, “Ways to Look Ten Pounds Lighter Today: Tip #2. And thank you for all your private message and comments!
I don’t know about you but I’m sick, tired and confused about all these “experts” telling me what to eat and not eat and promising magic results DF/C/D/.overnight. Coffee’s good for you ; coffee’s bad for you; now it’s good again! Whaaaateverrrrr. That said, there are several things you can do without spending a dime to look instantly slimmer.
Tip #2: Ditch the “Mom Capri” .
Right now, go in your closet and donate them all. They are not coming back nor should they~ ever! They not only make our legs look short, our ankles big, accentuate us in all the wrong places but they date us. See what I mean?
Please don’t be offended. I used to wear them too. But clearly the same misguided man who put only 2 stalls in a woman’s bathroom invented them. Remember “Mom Jeans”? Well, I’m declaring war on the “Mom Capris”. These lovely women deserve better; we all do!
One caveat: I’m not taking about getting rid of the ankle pant, a tailored crop pant, pencil pant or your cute yoga pants. And yes, gauchos are “in” but that’s a whole different story for another day. Just rid yourself of the Mom Capri asap. You’ve got all of Labor Day weekend to do it!
And always remember~You’re Never Stuck!

ps. And if you don’t know what to replace them with, have a picture of you tossing your Mom Capris, have ideas for others on what to replace them with or a question please comment below or shoot me an email.
Recently I tweeted from @youreneverstuck asking folks to direct message me about where they feel most stuck. For many of us +40 women, the resounding message was- my weight! So without joining the masses who tell you what you should or shouldn’t eat/drink/exercise, this short fashion post is for you!
Tip #1: Make it monochromatic.
Trust me, from someone who’s “blessed” with a short waist, this little fashion trick does wonders.
Note that it needn’t all black either. Pick your favorite color and it needn’t be tucked in. An added bonus in monochromatic dressing is that it also looks expensive. Here are a few favorite looks:
Yes, all these models are annoyingly skinny. (Sorry about that! ) However, notice the monochromatic look also makes them look taller, leaner and polished.
Give it a try, let me know how you do and/or send me a picture!

ps. To get the full effect, I recommend your shoes are the same color ( unless your wearing a cast 😈) The eye will grasp it all as one; making you look well …10 pounds lighter!
