1. Ugh, I have nothing to wear. 

“Well, I'm not bailing you out of jail for indecent exposure, so we'd better get creative about finding an outfit. Let's think about what kind of event this is and choose some outfits. Something will work."

2. This outfit makes me look fat.

“This evening isn't gonna be positive without some positive thinking. Maybe your mirror isn't set correctly and is actually warping your reflection. Try looking in another mirror (or mirrors).”

3. I can't get my jeans on.

“On to the next pair. If you've only got one pair of good jeans, we have a problem.”

4. My shoes hurt.

“Let's pick out a pair of shoes that still look good but won't hurt. Or, you can bring a pair of flats to change into at some point.”

5. Someone else is wearing the exact same thing as me.  

To prevent this, add a little piece of flair to make yourself stand out. It can be as simple as a cool scarf, or can be as out there as a great sweater or extravagant hat.”

6. Uh-oh, I'm underdressed.

“Lies. There are at least two people at this event who aren't even dressed appropriately for this event. Be cool!"

7. I'm way too dressed up for this event.  

There is no such thing as being overdressed. If anything, you being too dressed up is like sending out a message of, ‘GET ON MY LEVEL.’”

8. I hate everything in my closet.  

“Let's take an afternoon and do an inventory and do an audit. We'll determine what stays, what's getting donated, and what's being given away to a friend. OK?”

1. Ugh, I have nothing to wear. 

“Yes, you do. Just wear that cool dress you wore last weekend. I'm the only one who saw it.”

2. This outfit makes me look fat. 

 “It doesn't, you look great. What do you want to drink?”

3. I can't get my jeans on.

“Really? Weird. Same thing happens to me sometimes... probably a laundry thing.”

4. My shoes hurt. 

“Piggyback ride?”

5. Someone else is wearing the exact same thing as me. 

“That's not the same thing. Plus your necklace makes you stand out.”

6. Uh-oh, I'm underdressed. 

“So am I, so it's cool.”

7. I'm way too dressed up for this event. 

 “No, you aren't, that girl has a similar outfit. You look great, shhh.”

8. I hate everything in my closet. 

“Then buy some clothes, and donate old ones to charity.”

1. Ugh, I have nothing to wear. 

“Get a friend to come over and help select an outfit. Fresh eyes on an old wardrobe can bring new light on something you are overlooking.”

2. This outfit makes me look fat. 

“Get an opinion of an honest friend. Build your confidence. If you feel sexy you will look and act sexy. Sexy is more attitude than the reflection in the mirror.”

3. I can't get my jeans on.

“Lay down on the bed and lift your legs in the air. Gravity will help you rather than fight you.”

4. My shoes hurt. 

“Get insoles or shoe stretchers. Don’t cheap out on shoes. Anyone can make a pretty shoe but it takes an artist to make a pretty shoe comfortable. The price comes from craftsmanship and comfort.”

5. Someone else is wearing the exact same thing as me. 

“Throw on a jacket, a belt, or accessorize differently. The odds of the exact same outfit with exact same accessories are very slim.”

6. Uh-oh, I'm underdressed. 

 “ALWAYS overdress. Keep a few nice pieces of jewellery in your purse to throw on and class up the most casual outfit.”

7. I'm way too dressed up for this event. 

 “You will never be remembered as the overdressed one. You will be remembered as the best-dressed.”

8. I hate everything in my closet. 

 “Again have a friend come and go through your wardrobe. You are just hating it now; you must have loved it at some point or it would never have made it to the closet.”

1. Ugh, I have nothing to wear. 

“That's cool babe, why don't you try on some stuff and we'll find an outfit that works well together.”

2. This outfit makes me look fat. 

“Listen to Cher’s “Believe.” It’s mad motivational and will help you out.”

3. I can't get my jeans on.

“OK, put a skirt on instead.”

4. My shoes hurt. 

“I told you not to wear those shoes.”

5. Someone else is wearing the exact same thing as me. 

“You wear it better than she does, but just for good measure I'll spill something on her.”

6. Uh-oh, I'm underdressed. 

 “Put a scarf on.”

7. I'm way too dressed up for this event. 

“Take the scarf off.”

8. I hate everything in my closet. 

“Same as #1.”

1. Ugh, I have nothing to wear. 

"Own it, wearing nothing can be quite charming for your date."

2. This outfit makes me look fat. 

"Look in the mirror, compliment yourself because your clothes complement you. Then go shopping."

3. I can't get my jeans on.

"Are they your favourite pair of jeans? If yes, consider greens over carbs. If no, cut them up into jean shorts.” 

4. My shoes hurt. 

"Increase morning stretch routine, decrease sodium intake, ice bath feet to reduce inflammation, buy some Dr. Scholl’s, buy shoes with better support.”

5. Someone else is wearing the exact same thing as me. 

"Flirt with the guy at the bar, steal his jacket."

6. Uh-oh, I'm underdressed. 

"Always better slightly underdressed."

7. I'm way too dressed up for this event. 

 "Hair down, makeup off, confidence up."

8. I hate everything in my closet. 

"Empty your closet, throw everything on the bed, and randomly pick from the pile for inspiration. Add glass of wine, chocolate, and a friend to make it an evening.”

1. Ugh, I have nothing to wear. 

“Swing by Topshop for something quick, cheap, and fun on sale.”

2. This outfit makes me look fat. 
“Throw a slim-fitting blazer over it.”

3. I can't get my jeans on. 
“Keep the jeans unbuttoned and throw on a shirt long enough to cover it.”

4. My shoes hurt. 
“Find a place to perch and be the life of the party so everyone walks over to you.”

5. Someone else is wearing the exact same thing as me. 
“Grab them and take a selfie! No shame.”

6. Uh-oh, I'm underdressed. 
“Order the fanciest cocktail you can think of.”

7. I'm way too dressed up for this event. 
“Take something off! Lose a piece of jewellery or your jacket.”

8. I hate everything in my closet. 
“Take a pile of clothes to the thrift store and treat yourself to something nice!”
