This is a before and after from the Spring Style Retreat. The pictures speak volumes but you’ll want to check out what Donna said about her experience!
I knew I was in a rut. About my clothes. About my message. About my attitude and appearance in general. And I knew I needed a change.
I saw this information about a “style retreat” for professional women. To help you with your brand. Lee was highly recommended by a business coach I am working with, so I took the bait.
I have to admit I was nervous. I thought I would be there with a group of fashionistas and this old country girl would be completely out of place.
Instead, it was one of the greatest experiences I ever had. We learned about branding, about having a message, about forecasting your message to others through your appearance.
We learned about body shape and how to dress that shape to be most attractive.
We learned secrets about our personalities that we didn’t even know. The part that makes us unique. The part that other people see, but we overlook.. And we learned how to let those secrets become a part of our image, instead of something we hide.
My before and after photos are absolutely amazing. I feel like a whole new person. I’ve been unchained from the old self. I’ve been freed to laugh and dream and smile. And I’ve become more accessible to my clients, which is the whole point.
And all of this happened in the most relaxed and fun setting possible. Everyone in the room was just like me–nervous, anxious and trapped inside themselves. And when the weekend was over, we had elegant swans emerging from our previous ugly duckling selves.
People think I’ve lost weight. They think I’ve had a face lift. They think I’ve colored my hair. They think I look fabulous. (And my husband thinks he has a mistress!)
If you ever ever ever have a chance to do this retreat with Lee, you better just move heaven and earth to make it happen. You will never regret a moment of it.

I’m so glad I attended your style retreat Lee! It was an amazing experience. I am now able to shop with confidence and I understand how to pick out clothes that look great on me. I used to dread shopping! I think the exercise we did with the magazines was a real game changer. The change in my perception of myself from the beginning of the weekend to the end was really amazing, thank you for that!

I signed up for the style retreat excited about how this could impact and help my career. What I did not know was how much this would help me both personally and professionally. Not only did I learn how to improve my business image but I learned valuable information about myself. We did several fun exercises that were eye opening and helped me gain a better understanding of who I am.
I lot of times I see things in the catalogs and stores that I love but I know that would not look good on me. Therefore I automatically discard the idea that I could wear it. Lee encouraged me to embrace the things I was attracted to and then showed me the tools of how I could incorporate that style or look into my wardrobe. I am not sure how to explain it but I felt like I was seeing a whole new world. I was the one limiting myself to what I had created as my acceptable choices. Learning this about myself, and how to apply it to my wardrobe, has given me a new sense of who I am and also that my choices are endless.
Realizing a new sense of self and being provided the tools of how to embrace these ideas in a way that worked for me personally and professionally has been freeing. This has given me more confidence in creating the image I seek and made getting dressed a lot more fun!
I thoroughly enjoyed this weekend and am so glad I signed up!
