Ladies, for me, it has been a blessing to be... give you, “ More to Love
November - December 2014
Volume 13, Number 3
Ladies, for me, it has been a blessing to be able to expand my store - to
give you, “More to Love” - at Libby’s. Yes, we knocked the wall down between us and Jefferstone (He moved to downtown West Jefferson) - and
NOW we have expanded our look - for you!!
The new section has hardwood floors, a beauitful Brighton wall unit with a
wonderful selection of Brighton handbags. More room to showcase Brighton’s newest
addition of “Your True Colors.” Customers are loving being able to customize their favorite
colors in earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets! What a wonderful Christmas gift these
will make!! We moved the kitchen area, put a TV in for the husbands to enjoy and added
more dressing rooms. There is just “More to Love” at Libby’s!!!
We are now able to showcase “Sympli” looks, so you can see the wonderful ways to
create your own signature style. Try mixing a “Foxcroft” blouse under a Best Tee - you
create warmth, plus a collar at your face. Try adding a vest for another layer and look!!
Don’t forget our “Ming Wang” selection which easily mixes with “Sympli” or even
See our new styles from “Multiples SlimSation” pants mixed with our
“Cotton Collections” sweaters from “Parkhurst.” Are you going to need a new warm
coat this season? Why not buy one that is made in the USA - “Janska.” Our “Janska” line
makes - reversible, all weather coats - winter coats and vests. This year the cape is back also reversible from “Janska.”
Sometimes I feel like I am living my childhood dream - playing dolls and dress up.
Except now, it’s not Barbie Dolls - it’s with real dolls. You come to us when you have a
special occasion or need clothes for work or church or just a little retail therapy. Any day is
a runway - and you are our models.
I love what I do!! And I
am blessed to have my wonderful
girlfriends and customers who play
dress up with me. So THANK YOU
for the opportunity to expand - and
give you More to Love - at Libby’s.
Let’s keep playing.

24 Things to Always Remeber ...
and One Thing to Never Forget
Your presence is a present to the world.
You’re unique and one of a kind.
Your life can be what you want it to be.
Take the days just one at a time.
Count your blessings, not your troubles.
You’ll make it through whatever comes along.
Within you are so many answers.
Understand, have courage, be strong.
Don’t put limits on yourself.
So many dreams are waiting to be realized.
Decisions are too important to leave to chance.
Reach for your peak, your goal, and your prize.
Nothing wastes more energy than worrying.
The longer one carries a problem, the heavier it gets.
Don’t take things to seriously.
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.
Remember that a little love goes a long way.
Remember that a lot ... goes forever.
Remember that friendship is a wise investment.
Life’s treasures are people ... together.
Realize that it’s never too late.
Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
Have health and hope and happiness.
Take the time to wish upon a star.
And don’t ever forget ...
For even a day ...
How very special you are.

Your Fashion Cookbook!
So many times when we go to cook a new dish, we pull out a recipe book. We all own a stack of cookbooks
from church, schools, or famous chefs on TV. So here’s a fashion cookbook with recipes to help you look your best.
STEP 1 - Let’s start with getting to know your body! Yes, I know - you see yourself naked in the mirror every
day after you shower, but do you really see yourself? Take a deep breath and look. How long are your legs in relation
to your torso? How wide are your hips in relation to your shoulders? What are your porportions? Your proportions are
not necessarily height or weight issues, but also width and size of various parts of your body. From trim legs to
thunder thighs - its all about balance. Why do some ladies need shoulder pads and others don’t? You must know your
body shape. Are you a triangle or the opposite - the wedge? Maybe a rectangle. Regardless, we all want to have the
look of the hourglass.
STEP 2 - Now that you know your shape, let’s get to know your style. Are you a Classic? Someone who
only likes styles that never go out? A safe look that can take you anywhere. You enjoy suits or jackets that give you a
professional look! Maybe you are a Romantic, someone who loves lace, ruffles, flowing skirts with lots of feminine
touches - pearls in your accessories. Or maybe you are a Dramatic. You like your look to make a statement. You try
new trends, you create your outfits to be different. Bigger, bolder, jewelry! But the majority of you are Naturals. You
enjoy comfortable, easy to wear outfits! Styles that let you blend within a crowd instead of being the trendsetter. Not
a lot of of jewelry - simple, no fuss clothing. Most of us can be any of these fashion personalities or a combination of
two. We just need to know how to put it all together for work, church, or play.
STEP 3 - Now it’s time for color. Are you warm or cool? Does your skin have a peach or nude tone? Color
is what lifts our spirits. We all have neutrals from black to navy, khaki to white. It’s the accent color that makes your
wardrobe a breeze with mixing and matching! Build color in your shoe choices and accessories also. If you have red
shoes, you need red jewelry, etc. Color in your wardrobe is like the icing on a cake. We all tend to go to black or navy
as our bass color to build around. They both absorb light, and show the fewest imperfections. They camouflage any
extra unwanted pounds. Prints can also keep the eye moving. You must know the colors that best compliment your
skintone for your look. Lines show up in all your clothing and accessories from style to fit. Long-waisted,
short-waisted, a pant can have a full rise or a mid-rise. Vertical lines go up and down and the faster the eye scans a
line, the longer and more narrow they are. That’s why when you wear base dressing, (same color top and bottom) you
appear taller and thinner. Horizontal lines create width and asymmetrical lines create a slimming look to certain body
shapes. Layering your jewelry or adding a scarf can create the illusion of a vertical line to create a slimming effect.
Our accessories and necklines are also lines that can slim. From V-neck tops to round-necks, wearing the correct style
for your shape can make you look 10 pounds smaller and eliminate a double chin.
STEP 4 - Then there is texture, which is important when selecting clothing. How a fabric feels equals its
comfort. There are 4 basic natural fibers: wool, silk, linen and cotton. They are all fabrics that can be worn alone or
blended with other fabrics. There are also lots of man-made fibers. Polyester has come a long way being one of the
most versatile and easy care fabrics. “Sympli” is a great example of the right texture - it doesn’t cling and has great
drape in the weight of the fabric.
STEP 5 - Remember, an accessory is an
invitation to look, anything that accents, accentuates,
or points out! This can include the trim or button
on a garment, the fabric itself or your belt or jewelry
or shoes. If you don’t want them to look, then
don’t issue the invitation to look. You need them to
focus on you, the person, your face. So earrings
and necklaces are oh-so-important.
With this 5-step recipe, you can
get dressed every day and know
you look your best!!!
