Summer 2015 GYPO Style Challenge

SUMMER 2015 HEADER

Imagine waking up every morning this summer knowing EXACTLY what you’re going to wear that day, walking into a closet full of mix and match on-trend pieces that you love. Better yet, having a summer capsule wardrobe that makes vacation packing a breeze.  No more wandering around the mall not knowing what to buy.

All the work is done for you!

If this sounds like a dream come true, then let’s make that dream a reality.

You love looking cute and put together, right? But sometimes you’re not sure what to buy or how to pair it up. Maybe you’re stuck in a “mom rut” of yoga pants or out of style, poor fitting clothes but aren’t sure where to start to rebuild your wardrobe.

I can help you save time and know exactly what to shop for to create cute outfits and stay on trend.

Alison_Lumbatis_HeadshotWho Am I?

Hi, I’m Alison Lumbatis, a mom of three, personal stylist and recovering yoga pants addict. I know what it feels like to be stuck in a mom rut because I’ve been there. A few years ago, I started Get Your Pretty On to share what I learned and help other women get their style back and feel pretty again.

Since starting the GYPO Style Challenge in 2014, over 5,000 women have rediscovered their style, regained their confidence and made new style friends in our vibrant community.

I created the GYPO Style Challenge to help women like you get access to a personal stylist and make it easy and affordable to stay on trend.

Is the GYPO Style Challenge Right for You?

This style program is right for you if:

  • You’re willing to allow someone to take the guesswork out of style for you.
  • You’re open to modifying the outfits to suit your own tastes and comfort level.
  • You’re up for trying new styles even if some feel out of your comfort zone.
  • You’re eager to share shopping tips and advice with fellow challengers.
  • You’re ready to find confidence through style and discover what flatters your body type.
  • You want easy, go-to outfits in your closet, not just pieces that you don’t know how to pair up.
  • You are positive, encouraging and have an open mind to new ideas.

What to Expect

Each GYPO Style Challenge includes the following:

  1. Your Summer Basics Wardrobe Shopping List – You’ll save time and know exactly what to shop for with your capsule wardrobe shopping list of summer outfit basics. The shopping list is made up of a combination of classic pieces and on-trend items to update your wardrobe. It includes links to recommended items and a downloadable PDF to print off and take shopping with you.

  2. 21 Days of Daily Outfits – Take the guesswork out of putting your pieces together with outfit combos delivered to your inbox daily created from the pieces on your shopping list. Outfits are released at 7:00 p.m. ET the night before so you can have it ready to wear the next day.  The summer challenge also includes an option where outfits are released a week at a time for vacation packing and planning.
  3. spring-outfit-exampleA Vibrant Community Experience – You’re not in this alone. Each challenge includes it’s own private Facebook group* where participants can show off their new style, share shopping tips and style advice and make new friends. Most challengers agree that this is the best part of the challenge.  *Facebook groups are only active during a live challenge.  This group is no longer active. 

This is the only style program that allows you to spend as much or as little as you want and shop where you want. Many women shop their closets first!

What You’ll Get From It

  • A mix and match wardrobe to create casual, put-together outfits perfect for just about any daily activity.
  • Three weeks of outfit combinations that you can modify and wear over and over throughout the season.
  • A shopping list that allows you to save time and money by buying only what you need.
  • A closet full of outfits you love, not just pieces that don’t work together.
  • A better understanding of style and fit with daily style tips plus advice shared in the community forum.
  • Confidence in your own sense of style and the ability to choose clothes that flatter your body type.
  • A community of like-minded women who encourage, support and build up one another.

How Much Does it Cost?

One of the beliefs I founded GYPO on is that great style should be accessible for every woman. If you were working one-on-one with a personal stylist, you could spend over $1,000 on a capsule wardrobe and a season’s worth of outfits. Because this is a group styling program, I’m able to keep your investment to a minimum and offer it for just $39 on sale now for $29.

Your clothing investment is entirely up to you. Some women shop their closets first (which I HIGHLY recommend) while others buy all new items. I try to style each item on the shopping list an average of four different ways in order to have less items on the list and show you more ways to wear them. If you decide to buy new items, you’re free to shop at your favorite stores and spend as much or as little as you want.

FAQ’s

Q. What types of outfits will be in the challenge?

A. This challenge will consist of casual outfits for the busy woman on the go. There will not be work wear options included though you are welcome to substitute dressier pieces to make them work for a casual office environment. You’re free to shop where you want and modify any of the pieces or outfits to suit your comfort level and style.

The items on the shopping list will be classic pieces along with some trendier items thrown in the mix. You’ll even get to re-use a few pieces from other GYPO Style Challenges. Of course, you are always welcome to make substitutions for any of the pieces to suit your comfort level.

Here are some sample outfits from the challenge.

Q. How long do I have to get the items on the shopping list?

A. The shopping list will be released on June 5th.  You’ll have ten days to get all of the items on your shopping list before the daily outfits start on June 14th. Most women find this is enough time, even if you’re ordering items online. If you don’t have all of your pieces in place, don’t sweat it. You’ll be able to make substitutions or go back and style the outfit on another day.

Q. Does this work for all body types?

A. Absolutely, we have women of every size and shape participate. Because you are free to shop where you want, the challenge works for everyone, whether you’re a petite, plus size, tall, apple, pear, whatever!

Q. I’m going on vacation and would like to pack my outfits.  Is there any way I can get them in advance?

A. Yes, outfits will be linked up a week at a time on the main page.  You will have the option of viewing them there for planning purposes.

What Challengers are Saying

white-jeans-outfits-spring

Yesterday my husband told me I looked nice and asked if I was wearing new clothes. I told him it was all pieces I already had (except the shoes!) and he said maybe he had just never seen it all in this combination. But I realized that I had owned all of it for several years and hardly ever wore any of it! Thank you Alison for not only showing me what to buy in order to look stylish, but how to make the most out of what I already have. I feel pretty!

I ABSOLUTELY love this challenge! One of the best parts of this list is how affordable it is! Each person can choose to spend as much or as little as they want on clothing items. I love that we will style clothes that can be from Target or Saks-and look absolutely gorgeous!

Thanks for your continue inspiration! I thought these challenges would be quite expensive. However it really hasn’t been when I realized how much money I was wasting on clothes that I would buy and never wear, or didn’t know how to wear, that hung in my closet with tags. Then I just ended up not even trying and was absolutely frumpy. This has been such a huge help and I’m even spending less on clothes now!

Thank you! Today was a breakthrough for me; I felt so good, confident and stylish, and yet still so comfortable–in my outfit and in my own skin. I wasn’t hiding under baggy clothes, wasn’t tugging on something that didn’t fit well, and wasn’t wearing something that didn’t feel like ME. What a difference! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU all!

I can see the skills I’ve gained through these challenges. What a breakthrough. I never had any wardrobe skills and getting dressed has been a bit of a daily challenge my whole life. As a mom, I LOVED my maternity clothes and the post-baby comfort clothes that followed. I would still be in them if it weren’t for Alison and GYPO. My wardrobe all works together, and I no longer struggle to get dressed for every day or special appointments.

Looking at the clothes in my closet a whole different way…not something I would of even thought of a week ago…thank you for “challenging” me to go outside my “comfort zone”!

I’m getting so many good ideas here and learning so much from what you’ve shared, I’ve started a little folder of pics/ideas to take shopping. I feel like I know what I’m looking for and shopping smarter. Thanks!

It’s nice to have a group of positive women encouraging each other. It’s very refreshing in our world-I’m feeling good about my body and clothing choices instead of feeling like I don’t measure up. Thanks Alison.

GYPO Style Challenges are about so much more than the clothes. They’re about changing lives one outfit at a time. Read what some past participants have to say about how it’s effected their lives.

This challenge has brought a NEW me. I am a teacher, a mom, wife, and this has helped bring a smile to my face every day! I am getting compliments on my outfits from teachers and my students are loving the accessories!” – Karan

“I’ve never been stopped by strangers and generally don’t get noticed. Don’t get me wrong – I’m extremely confident about my abilities, but not how I look. This week I have turned a corner. When I enter the office in the morning, the secretaries stop me to check me out. A total stranger at Target told me she loved my bright green trench coat and my scarf. Even middle school students have noticed that I’m looking different. And they approve. Earlier this week I texted my husband “I feel pretty” and he texted back “You ARE!” Maybe after a few more weeks of this I will believe it.” – Laura

“Besides having a ton of fun waiting for each day’s outfit to be revealed and tweaking it to fit my style, one of the best aspects of the GYPO Style Challenge has been the positive new friends I’ve connected with on the Challenge Facebook page! The kind words, humor, and genuine care for others have been such an inspiration and encouragement to me. No matter the age, body shape, or walk of life, it’s been a confidence builder to have a safe place to show my style!“ – Jena

“Just the thought of having all the right pieces and being ready to go out without having to stress about what to wear sounded like a dream. I had to sign up. It’s been exciting, from getting the list on the first day to the unveiling of the outfits each day, but little did I know that the Facebook group would be the highlight of this Challenge. How in the world do you have the nicest and most caring followers?! My family and friends have given me many compliments and feel that I am getting out of my comfort zone. The great thing about all of this is that even when I’m not physically feeling my best, looking good on the outside can make a big difference on how I feel on the inside. And for me, that’s totally worth it. Thank you, Alison, from the bottom of my heart.” – Cathy

    Is there a discount for repeat clients?I want to sign up please.

    • Hi Kathleen, an email will be sent out with the code. Keep a look out for it!

  • Kerrie

    Hey!! One of the pretties on the challenge group pointed us in the direction of this but I didn’t receive emails with the announcement of early bird pricing and thought maybe I should wait if there is going to be alumni pricing? Sorry for the confusion, seems I did this last time – so excited to start yet confused that this is out before May 22???? Any words of wisdom?

    • It will be announced in our group and an email will be sent out as well. Can’t wait!

  • Yay! Can’t wait to start!!!

  • Hi Alison,

    Really looking forward to another challenge with you. I did receive an email but was wondering if Style Challenge alumni receive an extra discount on top of the early bird registration.

    Thanks for making my shopping so easy!

    • I’m looking forward to it too Kerry!

  • Melissa

    Hi Alison,
    It looks like I could really learn a lot from this. My problem is that I don’t know where to go to get the list items. Do you help with that at all? Also, is the challenge heavy on shorts? I struggle to find ones that fit and flatter. Thanks!

    • Melissa, wonderful question. I offer a shopping list/links with all my GYPO Style Challenges.

      No, the challenge is not heavy on shorts. There will be a variety to choose from and substitute.

  • Sharon

    Is there a way I can sign up a friend and pay for her?

  • Jesslyn Newhall

    I’m late! Are you going to have a GYPO for fall??

    • Yes, are you on the mailing list? You’ll be notified of any upcoming challenges. 🙂 Can’t wait to have you participate!

  • What a cool challenge! I’m a huge proponent of re-working the clothes you already have in new and innovative ways.

  • Priscilla Shiogi

    I just found you on Pinterest and think I am too late for the summer challenge. Should I sign up now or wait for the fall challenge? One more question, do I pay for each new season? Looking forward to hearing back from you.
    Priscilla

    • Priscilla, the summer challenge has ended, but you can still join the challenge. It just won’t be live and you’ll be receiving the shopping list and daily outfits all at once. I can’t wait!

  • Dee mcqueen

    I just saw your website. When does the fall session start?

    • Hi Dee! Info about fall will be sent out in early September. It will go out to the mailing list first. Hope you can join us!
