Holiday Season Approaches

OK, ladies, what are you going to be wearing to holiday parties this year? Are you going to spend time, gas, and money searching for that perfect New Year's Eve dress, knowing that you probably will not be able to wear it again? Would you like to find some unique gifts for your fashionista friends and relatives? Jockey Person to Person can solve all of these problems, quickly, easily and economically! We have separates that can be dressed up and will work perfectly for the most elegant evening. We have a dress that can be worn several different ways, backwards, forwards, cap sleeves, strap sleeves, self-belted, no belt. This dress comes in black (the perfect "little black dress" and "true love", a red that works year 'round.

For holiday gifts, JP2P has
jewelry (earrings, necklaces, cuffs), scarves, belts, a leather wallet, and sunglasses.

For exquisite dressing that won't break the bank, try some of our separates. We have a flared jersey skirt in black and in true love. Pair it with the crossover jersey top (same colors) or our cap sleeve cowl top. Add some bling and you're good to go! And if anyone spills champagne, no worries, everything is washable!

Rain, Weeds, Gardens and Closets

(July 3, 2011) This Spring has been one of the rainiest that I can remember. Rain makes it easier to pull the weeds, but it also makes them grow! Pulling weeds slowly so that the root comes out gives me a certain satisfaction, like a child pulling out a loose tooth. Creating a beautiful garden takes a lot of hard work. Weeding, mulching, planting, and then watering and weeding some more take up so much time. The results are worth it, sure, but the hours that it takes can never be recovered.

One way to save time elsewhere in your life is through having an organized closet. You don’t need to have a million skirts, jackets, dresses, blouses, and sweaters when a few smart purchases will do. Weeding out your closet, like weeding the garden, takes time but the results are dramatic: less clutter to wade through when getting dressed each morning; tax deductions for the donated clothing items; a clearer self-image; and a more organized and in-control you. Getting dressed each morning will be a breeze when you have a carefully coordinated wardrobe. A few tops, a few skirts, a pair of pants, a few jackets in the right color combinations can be mixed and switched for an endless succession of outfits.

Jockey Person to Person® has the solution for every woman’s closet. Classic, timeless pieces that can be dressed up, dressed down, mixed and changed from casual to career to dressy. View our catalog and find the style that suits you best. Call me or email me to set up your customized home showing. Notice the accessories (belts, bags, scarves) that supplement the apparel, plus a fantastic “double-breasted jacket” in 3 colors to keep you dry in the next rainstorm!

Transitioning Into Spring


Unless you live on the equator, you probably have some clothes that you put away for a season. Whether you’re in Canada, New York, California, Florida, or the midwest, you may have “winter clothes” and “summer clothes”. Many areas have more than two seasons, however, and in the midwest where I live, we often have months where the weather can’t decide what it’s doing. We may have a spring-like day in March, and then more snow. In the fall we can have cool temperatures for days and then a summer heat wave comes along. So you can’t really put your out-of-season clothes into storage.

What’s the answer? Layering. Using scarves, jackets, sweater sets, crop pants, etc. will keep you comfortable no matter what Mother Nature comes up with. A good jacket will go a long way in your wardrobe. You can use it to dress up a casual outfit while keeping warm on chilly days. A versatile jacket or sweater can enhance an outfit while providing functionality. JP2P has a wonderful collection of jackets as well as some smart sweater sets.

A nice pair of capri pants can ease the transition from cold temperatures into the warmer season. Many capri or crop pants can be quite dressy, depending on the fabric. Often, capris can be part of a great casual outfit. They are, of course, warmer than shorts, cooler than long pants, and more comfortable than a dress or skirt. Add a nice top and a sweater or jacket and you are good to go. Whether the air conditioner is on or the heater, you’ll be quite comfortable. With a scarf or a belt you can add pizazz to your outfit. You can also define whether it’s casual or dressy with your accessories. So grab a great jacket or sweater to keep handy for the transitional weather.

Is it Spring Yet?

(February 2011) The snow has melted and the sun is higher in the sky! There is light at the end of the tunnel and I believe we have almost made it through another Ohio winter. Time to refresh the wardrobe with some bright new colors to celebrate! Turns out that RED is one of the colors that look good on all skin tones / hair colors, so if you’ve been afraid to be bright and bold, fear no more! You will look good!

Before I could finish up this post, the snow came again. Hopefully for just a short visit! We got about an inch of icy stuff. Other areas nearby got up to 6 inches! But I don’t care, I am ready for Spring! I hope you are too, but if not, call me and I will outfit you in some fabulous clothes that you can wear all summer too. Check out our catalog to see what else we have in store for you.
