If she’s deep winter then why is she wearing gold jewelry? Why does she also look like she has warm undertones?
Mike C (4 months ago)
Her veins are greenish, so how’s she winter?

I'm 64 and at my age, I mostly wear jeans, tees or shirts because I have a very difficult time finding clothes that are age appropriate. They are either to short or to low cut.
Mirrella Mahapatra (1 year ago)
Mimi I have been binge watching all your videos during the last couple of days. And you selfishly share such essential things. I could related so much with what you said here. I normally do that but then my frends question that about me and I used to doubt. But now I feel confident that some one like you believes all these so much. Thanks for all the videos

pecha deh (2 years ago)
every time I see interesting clothes, the first thing I check is the price tag and fabric information. If the price and quality match then I will try it on. If I can't find the right size that really fit, I will just leave it.

Anara Timchenko (3 years ago)
I ask myself a question "Do I love this piece of clothing so much that I want to wear it every day?" If the answer is no, I don't buy it. That's my shopping decision making rule that helps me make reasonable decisions.
varbie varbie (1 year ago)
The best tip
Anara Timchenko (1 year ago)
tropicalum I would start with inexpensive pieces (like from H&M, Zara) that you really-really love and feel great wearing, then build your wardrobe around these pieces. Eventually, if you analyze your choices, you will see the pattern. For example, you are more of a "pants and a blouse" girl or "skirts and t-shirts" girl. Be confident, be happy, and the style will come around! ✌🏻🤘🏻✊🏻💪🏻
Samantha Rae (2 years ago)
Anara Timchenko I got my first job and I'm planning on getting new clothes, I haven't really been able to have 'my' style. I'm trying to get rid of clothes and it's so hard cause I feel like I'm gonna get rid of to much.
Hadeel Al Musallam (2 years ago)
Sounds like an interesting tip! Thanks!
Anara Timchenko (2 years ago)
Thanks! I had to stop my shopping addiction somehow so I came up with this tip 😅

Caroline Angelica (3 years ago)
+Phylis Meldrum well she's explains everything in the video. She's just giving us an overview of what she's going to be talking about in the video
Phylis Meldrum (3 years ago)
I guess I am not a happy person. clothes do not look on me. I am too old to wear the cute little dresses and skirts I do not know how to apply make up....it looks the same whether I put it on or not. I cut my hair short because it never grows very long, the only time it looks good is when I come out of the salon. I have mouses Brown hair with eyebrows that go half way up my forehead. my husband divorced me a few years back. it was no wonder. He was always trying to make me happy .....I only saw a frumpy 65 year old woman that didn't apply make up , have great hair style or clothes that stole the show. signed Frumpy and alone at 65.

How do you become an image consultant? I have been thinking about it for a while but don't know how to start

Please do a colour consultation video 👏👍👌
olivia hopeful (3 years ago)
Something I always keep in mind is that if the garment doesn't fit you, no matter how beautiful it is, don't buy it. You're never going to feel comfortable in it and you'll end up not wearing it!
Hadeel Al Musallam (2 years ago)
So True!
Milana Sinkevich (3 years ago)
You are so beautiful!
rando (3 years ago)
I don't believe in "colour assessment"... The way I see it if you're healthy and therefore have clear skin and a fit body you will look good in any colour if it's a flattering shape and cut.
Louise M.E (3 years ago)
eco belle (3 years ago)
+Ania D I got complements if I wear the right color for my skin color and undertone. Im tan but not all colors suit me contrary to your belief. There are colors that darken me more or there are colors that make my skin look blotchy.
rando (3 years ago)
@eco belle I think that's only the case with a very tiny amount of colours and that can easily be amended with a fake tan lol (I find darker skin tones look good in anything...)
eco belle (3 years ago)
I disagree! People have different undertones. You can wear any color you like but not all will suit you. You can force yourself to like it but in reality it may either washes you off, darkens or complements you color.

+Ania D ok lol

Nice tips but i can't say the same thing for her clothes :/
Irina (4 years ago)
I totally agree with what you say but I definitely must disagree with your last tip. Lighting is so so important to the way you see yourself and if you like a piece of not... Doesn't matter lighting in the store or at home, if it is bad, you will look bad! And therefore you won't love the thing you are trying, where in reality it might suit you really well but you can't see that...
Rebecca Suraci (4 years ago)
@Irina Danovska agreed. i would not buy 90% of things if i really took stock in what i see in the fitting room mirrors. i just try it on for fit, then purchase if i can return it no problems. i will determine if i love it in the comfort of my home versus a store where i feel cramped and rushed and looking nasty in neon lights.

Hi Mimi, I agree to everything that you've said. I've really trained myself to say if I have tried something on and If I dont like it for whatever reason Im not buying it. Im not going to umm and ahh about it - Should I or Shouldnt I. You'll walk away saying "I did the right thing, I didnt really like it" Great video Hun xx

What if we have a small budget? How can we afford a waredrobe?
Emilee Iupeli (1 year ago)
I'm like 3 years late (lol) and thrifting can be the solution!!!
Romy EC (3 years ago)
@nikki urquhart I only buy clothes that are going to last, quality is the most important thing for me, so instead of buying something each week like I used to do, I add 1 good piece each month or sometimes is 2 or 3 months, depending how much time I need to pay what I bought the last time xD. At the beginning is sad to have only a few options, but gradually you end up having a beautiful, useful, and great quality wardrobe that is going to last for years, and I can easily update it by buying new accessories, or just tops that are usually the most affordable item on a wardrobe.

Thanks Mimi for these very important shopping tips. I am a doctor and not a very big shopaholic, basically I don't find enough time to shop so often. But sometimes I end up going around scanning every possible store and end up feeling nothing is like what I want, nothing s that I love... Shopping is such a pain! What should I do?
fish60155 (4 years ago)
U might like to start by looking more on fashion blogs to get ideas of looks and trends hat you would like, before going shopping.  If nothing fascinates you, then you probably arent very keen in shopping and it will be better to stick to basics for your everyday looks. (: if u dont love something, please dont buy it.  hope this helps!
