Rivka: “Once you have the right colors on, everything looks better. You feel better. It’s undeniable … You just need to see yourself once.

Cindy: “Your colors are unique to you. No two women are alike, so your own unique colors are really determined by you.”

My life changed color after I completed a color consultation with Rivka Grubb and Cindy Joseph as I noted in a recent post called, Embracing my Color Palette. Now, Rivka and Cindy want to offer my TFIO readers an opportunity to do the same with a summer sale: Rivka and Cindy are offering a $50 discount from the original price of $250, a total of $200, to get your own Forever Ring of Colors FROC to identify your personal colors that will guide you as you shop and go forward. And your FROC will be unique to you and you only.

To find out more simply email Rivka and Cindy at this link using the code TFIO50 (note: offer ends July 16, 2015). Rivka and Cindy will send you a set of instructions on how to take the best photos possible so they can hand select your Forever Ring of Colors.

A colorful gift you can give yourself! Happy Summer!

My Forever Ring of Colors!

There is a quote from fashion icon Coco Chanel: “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” I think the same could be said about dressing with color: wear the wrong color and you notice the color; wear the right color and you notice the woman … Let’s talk color palette.

I thought I knew my best colors – the ones that bring out the best me. I know, for instance, that the moment I put on a cherry red, I feel happy. I see my eyes pop and my skin shine. I know that I have always loved wearing pink and have a long history with pink (my mother tells me I have been a fan of pink since I was three years old). And I know that I wear a lot of black and white and have come to love wearing brown – but I can’t tell you why. Because I realize that I don’t know it all. I still make mistakes with color – and more often than I would like to admit. And because I want to understand my colors and make good choices and fewer mistakes, I took matters into my own hands and had a color consultation with experts. Continue reading

Follow your style

I like a simple, classic style. I guess because I am on the petite side, clothing that is full of detail or too trendy never works for me. If I don’t keep it simple, I feel like the clothes are wearing me. And that’s never good. What I like to do is focus on a good fit and color. And when Rivka said that we should refrain from wearing too much black, she was speaking to me. So this yellow, pea coat-style jacket is a classic, and pairs well with other favorites: jeans and a striped tee.

Jacket: Ralph Lauren Polo

What I do is not about clothes.” ~ Rivka

Rivka Grubb has been blessed with really good eyes; eyes that see things that help women feel and be their best selves. Not simply a fashion stylist or a fashion consultant, Rivka is more like the vehicle that strips away the black coal, to reveal the “diamond” that is the woman underneath. Rivka told me that it all began when she was a young child growing up in Israel with a doll make-over! Here is Rivka

I was born in Israel and grew up there, until I moved to The United States when I was 13. My father was a furrier; my mother was a Paris-trained dress-maker and designer. They both worked from home. My father worked with fur pelts and my mother worked with people who had the money for custom dresses; she designed dresses for these women. From the time I could crawl around the floor, I was surrounded by pieces of fur, silk, brocade, ribbons, and buttons. As a young child, I had a doll. Not a fancy Barbie Doll, but a plain, Ruth Doll. With Ruth, I began to play with the fabrics in my house: I gave her a fur stole, a new dress, and accessories. My mother says that when I was four years old, and I brought her the new version of Ruth, I looked at her and asked, ‘Doesn’t this look better?’ And I have been doing this ever since! I guess you could say that it is in my DNA. It’s in me. I have both the knowledge and the God-given talent to see things and know how to translate them for others …

What women need to know is that they are attractive just as they are. They have more inner beauty than they realize and it is possible to go from good to better, to shine through beyond. When I work with a woman for the first time, I ask her to look in the mirror and start with what she likes about herself. Women are so disapproving of themselves and it is essential to identify with the good things, first. Only then, can she accomplish a higher level of confidence … Continue reading
