Get Your Pretty On is all about easy ways to feel pretty – inside and out.
Have you forgotten what pretty feels like?
I’m Alison Lumbatis, a personal stylist, mom of three and recovering yoga pants addict. My goal at GYPO is to provide the inspiration, tools and support to make it as easy as possible for you to feel pretty every day.
GYPO started as my accountability partner to chronicle my personal style journey out of the yoga pants mom rut. Over the past few years, it’s evolved into a space for women worldwide to get style and beauty inspiration, gain confidence and live prettier lives.
Alison Lumbatis is the creator/editor of Get Your Pretty On and the first of it’s kind online capsule wardrobe membership program – StyleChallenges.com. Since rolling out the program in 2014, over 6,000 women in 20 countries have participated. She is also the developer of Stylegistix, a turnkey fashion tech platform that allows personal stylists, fashion bloggers and online fashion retailers to easily create and sell their online style programs.
Alison is a personal stylist and former actress and print model with both creative and technical backgrounds. She was a network engineer for several years before leaving corporate America to pursue creative endeavors. She is a contributor to Redbook Magazine and has been named one of the Top 25 Best Fashion and Beauty Blogs (POPSUGAR), an Editor’s Favorite (Lucky Magazine) and a Top Up and Coming Blog (Bloglovin’).

My Mom Rut
I started Get Your Pretty On a few years ago after falling into my own yoga pants mom rut. After a few years of working from home, I’d lost all accountability and motivation for getting dressed and taking care of myself. It was negatively impacting more than just my appearance. To get out of my mom rut, I carved out time to feel pretty every morning by putting on a little makeup, fixing my hair (in something other than a ponytail) and getting dressed in real clothes. When I picked up my daughter from school the first day of my new routine she said “Mommy, what happened to you? You look PRETTY!” That was when I decided to make the commitment to looking and feeling better – not just for myself, but for my family too.
Starting GYPO turned out to be the kick in the yoga pants I needed to make an effort every day to stay out of my mom rut.
Since then, my goal has been to share what I’m learning and make easy style and beauty available to women just like me. At GYPO you’ll find lots of easy ways to feel pretty that work for your daily life. I love helping other moms gain confidence and feel great through accessible style, simple outfit formulas and easy beauty tips that work for everyday.
Easy, Affordable Style
Great style is really about having the right pieces and knowing how to put them together. Through my virtual styling program, the GYPO Style Challenge, I provide a seasonal shopping list with those pieces and outfits for you. You don’t have to be be wealthy to have your own personal stylist, my style challenges are at a price point that anyone can afford.
Whether you’ve forgotten what pretty feels like, are ready to rediscover your style or just want looking put together to be a little easier, you’re at the right place!
My Life as a Mom and Wife
I’m incredibly blessed to be married to my best friend Craig (we met on a blind date!) and to share our family life in the north Dallas suburbs. We have three sweet, smart and amazing kids – Devon, our college sophomore pre-med major, Aubrey, our kindhearted 17 year-old gymnast/cheerleader, and Ava, our 11 year-old that’s crazy about horses.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll stick around. After all, it’s even better to feel pretty together.
