The Style The Swap And The Wardrobe


They say money can not buy happiness, but it sure can put a smile on your face when it makes Prada and Gucci garments more affordable. We were the planets biggest shopaholics before we lost all our money and shopping for labels, was as important as, shopping for love.These days we have found swapping to be the new shopping because every Women has a wardrobe full of mistakes, just bursting to be de-cluttered and passed on to a new loving home.Our Hollywood Look For Less top tip is to invite a group of your friends round for some lunch and tell them to bring two things from their wardrobe they have never worn to swap, this can include shoes, bags and other accessories. There is no need to have any formal way of doing things, just have fun and see how many successful swaps you make, beats feeling depressed when you cannot afford a new frock, trust us.It is such a good fun idea and everyone hopefully will walk away with something new, that did not cost a penny.
Make Eco fashion your passion and your friends green with envy.

Recycling Rocks With Secondhand Frocks

Every time we recycle our party dresses, we give an everyday item a new lease of life, so get savvy and swap last year's party dress with friends for a brand new look without spending a penny.

New consumer research for Recycle Now Week reveals that over half of us feel guilty for not doing more to protect the environment. The nation’s top causes of ‘green guilt’ are throwing food away (41%), using plastic bags at the supermarket (33%), throwing packaging away instead of recycling (28%), leaving the TV on stand-by (27%), and travelling short distances in the car, instead of walking or cycling (23%).

As we say buy new and the joke is on you.

Two Ex Millionaires And A Load Of Old Clothes


It is hard to imagine that one year ago we were on the dole as celebrity stylists, all we had was a load of unique clothes hand picked from charity shops and a dream.
The dream was to style the Nation on a budget, put back some much needed glamour and get everyone recycling. After a year at Butlins entertaining and confidence building with happy holiday makers, we have become stylists to the public and why not, you don't have to be a celebrity to have a personal stylist, it is now possible for anyone.

If The Shoe Fits


Here are just some of the amazing recycled shoes we have collected over the last three years, all available in The Hollywood Look For Less Style Studio.

Secondhand Rose In Recycled Clothes.


Today we styled our first client Michelle who was in a panic because she could not find a look or an outfit for a wedding tomorrow.
She joined the Style studio, had a styling experience and walked away looking Hollywood fabulous in a complete unique recycled outfit. Once she has worn it, loved it and is over it, like most Women she will want something new to wear.
As a member she can bring back the outfit and swap it for something else for a small fee, constantly updating her wardrobe and her look, the perfect shopaholic paradise.

Swap Or Not




We will be out and about again today with our fabulous rail of recycled clothes up for swap. This amazing designer, one off, purple winter coat is our "on trend" item for today and you could be the lucky owner if you are prepared to swap your coat for ours.



How it works.

We are hoping to re-style the Nation by taking our recycled style studio clothes on to the High Street and with our drab to fab mini make-overs convince everyone to swap their own clobber for a brand new look without spending a penny.

Watch out for us.

Public Stylists Save The Day.


Styling is a skill that appears to allude many in the U.K. In Britain, we have chosen to shop till we drop instead, the fashion industry’s answer to reaching fashionista’s nirvana, the place celebrities in magazines tell us they go in between rehab. The TV gives us our weekly dose of fashion shows which all talk of styling without actually delivering any concrete "how tos" and the constant use of "on trend" and "must haves" puts us once again firmly in that subliminal, inescapable shopaholic matrix.
The solution is the studio located at 5C Cross Street, Blaby next door to Movie Zone, where women have the opportunity to resolve their personal fashion frustrations and body hang-ups with experts, get concrete information and help in making the most of what they already have. Where else can you try completely styled looks, colours, accessories you have not tried or tend to shy away from.
Unlike a retail store Holly and Shirleys unique collection of recycled clothes is not for sale, as each piece has been individually handpicked and is priceless to them. However anyone can join their Stylista club after consultation. Stylista members are eligible to borrow complete styled looks for special events and occasions for a week at a time.
"Celebrities rarely buy clothes for an event or occasion, they borrow them from designers or more likely their stylist, the basis for our idea." said Holly
"So if you, are sick of being a slave to the fashion industry’s rhythm, are stuck in a time warp, have too many clothes and nothing to wear or are just completely lost when it comes to your look, say these two simple rules aloud,
CONFIDENCE ALWAYS EQUALS STYLE,
FASHION DOES NOT ALWAYS EQUAL STYLE and
STYLE IS UNIQUE, FASHION IS FOR SHEEP, then call us." said Shirley

Our Style Studio Is Now Open



20th October, 2009-Countesthorpe, Leicestershire. Holly(44) and Shirley(53) Yanez, hosts of the hit styling show The Hollywood Look For Less, are opening the first Hollywood Style Studio in Blaby, Leicestershire on 3rd November. 2009 just in time for the Christmas social calendar. They will be available for personal or group styling consultations and closet clearouts by appointment.
"Styling is a service normally reserved for celebrities or the very wealthy. After the success of the show the public are clearly crying out for style help on a budget." said Shirley
For those amongst us, dare I say it, with a shopping addiction, giving up a twenty a day habit is preferable to never setting foot in a shopping mall again. Take it from Holly and Shirley, the people who put the word "shopaholic" in the O.E.D. But like any bad habit, when the fix is temporary and only leaves you wanting more money, for more wardrobe space and ultimately more shopping, you can do one of only two things;
Die under a mountain of unworn clothes and final demand notices or
Book in to The Hollywood Look For Less Style Studio.

How To Get A Brand New Look Without Spending A Penny.

Have No Fear Styling Help Is Finally Here.


Everyday we are finding out just how fed up Women in the UK are with style and fashion, it seems most have given up all hope of ever looking great or feeling confident .
Retail is in trouble, sizing is out of control and fashion all looks the same, so unless you know how to put a complete outfit together, in effect be a stylist, looking stylish, unique and co-ordinated is impossible for most.
We run the very first recycled Style Studio in our village where Women come in for Styling sessions and get help to decide what to wear for that special event, they can then borrow the outfit for a small fee and bring it back a week later.
We have also inspired many local Women to loose weight and look great.

Looking For Harvey Weinstein Our Book.


This is the story of four pair. The first pair are THE GIRLS, and I don't mean THAT kind of pair,
although those are there too, mind you! No, I am talking about a pair of go-getter gals who jettison their UK roots, and safety and security and riches, to invade America and become Evangelists for Genius.
No small goals for THESE girls.
Think Elizabeth Hurley and Rebecca DeMornay on AbFab-overconfident-overdrive.

Then there's HARVEY WEINSTEIN -- the man, and the myth
(so there's your pair right there).
The bloke the babes believe will be their Knight in shining armor, or denim, or polyester, WHATEVER,
just be the KNIGHT, for God's sake! He may come through, but maybe not in the way the Girls expect,
or want, or desire. Sometimes you can't get what you want, you get what you NEED,
ain't that right Mick and Keith?
And what a pair of Rolling Gallstones THOSE two are!
They still rock! But I digress. Then there are the TWO HUNK HUBBIES, the hairy pair who the Girls fell for hard, hard bodies who ultimately were not right for the Girls the way water is not right for vinegar,
if you get my drift, and i know you do. Then, finally, there is the CREATIVE GENIUS artiste, and his genius work. Can the Girls bring him to World prominence, reveal the "new Michelangelo" for all to love, for eons to come?
Or will Hollywood chew and spit out the lot of them
faster than movie execs turning their heads to ogle J.Lo butt cleavage? There you go. Now you know. Four pair, highly rare, not a moment to spare, there's a major story there. A story of love. And rejection. A story of struggles. And snuggles. A story of genius that cannot be denied.
And the snide who love a free ride. A story of how The Girls finally DO pitch Harvey their film
that will change the world, but wind up wowing him with their "Ciggie Thingie" instead. What's a "Ciggie Thingie"? You gotta read the screenplay, luv!
Suffice it to say, it saves the day. Remember: you can't always get what you want,
but sometimes, you get what you NEED. "Change the way you look at things,
and the things you look at will change." That ain't Confucius, that's the Girls --
and it ain't confusing, it's actually amusing. Find out more......... when you read what is destined to be the greatest female buddy romantic farcical satirical comedy this century (if by "this century" one means 2009).

Celebrity Closet Clear-Out


The Clothes Throw.
Charity Shops all over the Country are crying out for donations from the over filled clutter of all you shopaholic closet queens.
In Hollywood, Eva Longoria Parker has a massive master closet filled to the brim with Gowns, shoes and expensive couture galore.
Paula Abdul has a huge closet bursting at the seams with the fashion of our dreams and
Mariah Carey, our closet Cinderella, takes the top spot in her 12,000 square foot Manhattan triplex paradise filled with a 1000 pairs of shoes!
We are on a mission to walk in as many celebrity closets as we can and give them a bit of a clear-out, all in the name of charity.
We will keep you posted as to how we are getting on but things are looking good with a handful on board already

Recycled Wedding Couture From Christain Dior.


You never know what you might discover in our recycled style studio. This vintage Chritian Dior wedding dress was used as part of a Hollywood style shoot a few years back and now belongs to us.

We are so hoping to find it a new home because this dress was made to be worn.

Watch out for more news coming soon.

Slash The Budget And Smash The Style


This is one hot look with a pair of old jeans. The key to any casual celebrity outfit is looking like you have just thrown on that 1970's iconic T never far from any fashionista's fingers. Inspired by a quick glimpse of Lyndsay Lohan lunching at the Ivy in Beverly Hills, we decided to create the look for less today.
We did not have to travel to LA to do it, the car boot at Croft came up trumps with a vintage slash T Shirt from a heart broken rock chic clearing out, 50p. The bronze glitter belt, 50p came from a young shopaholics never thin enough to wear it. The investment piece of the day an in the box, perfect copy, Chanel charm bracelet for a whopping ten pounds off sets a pair of plastic dangly earring's, 50p and a very convincing statement ring at 20p. The whole Hollywood celebrity look for less is topped off with a mock crock clutch that if Lyndsay Lohan were photographed holding, everyone would swear it was Hermes, actually Dorothy Perkins, £3.

Five Star Getaway On A Budget


The amazing Byblos Hotel In Mijas Costa Del Sol is up for sale and it looks like Mr Alan Sugar might be the new owner. We have just had a quick week there and picked up the room for a song, so check on line and take advantage of this five star luxury Hotel for less.

A Very Posh Hollywood Look For Less


Moving to LA will give anyone the perfect reason to collect designer sunglasses as a must have staple to compliment all outfits, Posh is a perfect example with her trade mark big black shades.
If you rummage in your local charity shop or root the car boot, sunglasses are in abundance this time of year, so get savvy, pick up a pair and be unique this winter in some secondhand chic.

Get The Boot At The Car Boot


Don't you just love the fact that winter is just around the corner and you can finally cover up again. All the stores are bursting with black, sequins and flat riding boots inspired by the Chanel cat-walk.
Getting the Hollywood Look For Less car boot challenge makeover has been the highlight at Butlins this week, we gave away three amazing pairs, to three luck ladies.
Our top tip for best budget look to create your own Chanel cat-walk look this season is simple and will cost under a tenner at the local car boot sale. We suggest you root around the car boot for a pair of fabulous recycled riding boots, always in abundance at Croft in Leicester on a Sunday Morning for about £4. Next, check out all the young Girls who have got up early to get a sellers pitch, are in a bad mood and will sell off their shopaholic mistakes cheap in order to get back home to bed. So many young Women buy big accessories but never find the confidence to wear them, so picking up loads of pearls both necklace and bracelets for about 50p each to accompany the riding boots will be easy, trust us. All you need now are black leggings and a white shirt, things we all have in abundance in our over filled closets and Bobs your uncle, the Hollywood Chanel inspired look for less can be yours for under a tenner.

How To Banish Those Bat Wings At Butlins


Women over 40 in Hollywood never bat an eye lid at wearing a sleveless dress, bat wings only flap on a Dracula movie set, across the pond however, here in the UK, the horror reality is Women over 40 are still relying on Grandmas cardi to cover up.
Having learnt to battle with bat wings ourselves over the years, there is a rather smiple, effective, daily rountine anyone can do and the best news of all, it is completely free. Now it maybe free but we did not say it is easy so be prepard to do some work in order to see amazing results in just six months.
Stand straight and reach out your arms to the side in line with your shoulders, then rotate your arms and hands forward until your palms are face up. Keeping your arms at a right angle with your body raise them up and down fifty times or until you are in so much agony you know it is working.

Dress For The Drama Of Your Life.


Looking stylish is an art especially if you are a shopaholic on a tight budget. In Hollywood the little black dress accompanied by big black Chanel sun glasses is all it takes to look daytime stylish, anyone can do it. Find a really unique simple black dress in the charity shop or car boot, one Mans trash is another Mans treasure, remember and team it up with your own sunglasses. Adding some colour with a bright pink shoe will finish off the look perfectly, just like Elle the super model in a little Victoria Beckham number today out for a stroll looking effortlessly stylish.

The Hollywood Look For Less At Butlins.


We had two amazing shows at Butlins Minehead this week and here we are on stage about to meet our first candidate for a drab to fab mini makeover. What we had to work with in the first place was already great so the Hollywood look for less accessories just topped off her new look, without spending a penny.

Have A Root At The Car Boot.


We have had another fantastic week doing our live shows at Butlins where we recycle the best most fabulous finds from car boots and charity shops to give our audience the ultimate Hollywood look for less makeovers. Not bad for two ex Millionaires with a load of old clothes!
We can confirm the top Hollywood secret to being rich is buy new and the joke is on you. Many A Lister's can be found rummaging through vintage stores looking for a bargain piece to keep their style unique and compliment the designer bate given freely in return for an appearance on the red carpet.
Mixing what you already have with fabulous trash will transform drab in to fab envious treasures, making your friends green with envy. Our Hollywood look for less tip of the day is have a good root at your local car boot.

Live Longer And Get Stronger With Yoga.


We can report that Yoga has been embraced by Hollywood starlets and wannabe LA prefect pool contenders for quite a while. It is really the most amazing way to get a feeling of complete well being inside and out. The perfect way to balance mind with body and soul at the same time toning and sculpting the body into a lean mean working machine.
Our Hollywood look for less top tip brings yoga to anyone who wants to give it a go. Take a trip to the local car boot and pick up a "do it yourself "yoga at home DVD, chuck everyone out of the house and give yourself a much earned treat. The life changing results will astound you, we promise!

Free Face Lift


You have to give it to all those Beverly Hills plastic fantastic surgeons who take a wrinkly face and fill it with botex for a smooth frozen expression shared by several famous faces in LA LA Land. If you really want to have a face lift or are considering having some botox take a long hard look at Tony Curtis, bless him or Mrs Osbourn before you sign on the dotted line.
Our Hollywood look for less top tip is get yourself a free face lift you can do everyday at home without money or ending up looking like a trout pinned down in front of a wind machine.
It takes four simple steps to a new looking fresh faced real you.
1. Take an ice cube every Morning and rub across your face and neck area until melted. This will give your facial muscles a work out at the same time, stimulate the blood flow.
2. Eat five Brazil nuts daily, they contain a natural form of collagen that will help plump out the skin bringing it back to life with a healthy more youthful glow.
3. Drink 8 glasses of water everyday religiously.
4. For the neck area bend back your head and look up to the sky, then open and close your mouth wide like a fish, repeat this 50 times per day.
Now this will only work if you do it everyday for the rest of your life, it is a lifestyle not a quick fix but we think much wiser than day dreaming over countless celebrity cosmetic cock ups pretending to be happy with their lot in Hello magazine, not.

How To Be Thin The Clean Regime.


In Hollywood there are no short cuts to being thin, it is all about discipline and dedication but we have to say it does work. The only way you can get a healthy BMI is to follow a clean living lifestyle.
We gave up drinking, smoking, chocolate, caffeine, sex and meat about four years ago and now believe in our controlled indulgence mantra that really does work.
The Hollywood look for less top tip for a fabulous healthy body and mind is not easy but it works. We suggest you start each day by drinking 2 large glasses of water with a slice of lemon, followed by a glass of grapefruit juice. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day in order to get your metabolism working so eat fruit or drink a smoothie and avoid all carbs.
We know from experience that 1500 calories per day is the magic number to maintain weight so if you want to loose some then 1000 calories will do the trick.
Life is not all about being a perfect size 10 but looking and feeling healthy is critical for a long happy life, so if you can stand the clean regime it is possible to achieve your goals.

On The Plane With Taylor Wane


Here we are flying back from LA with the hottest British property in LA LA Land, Taylor Wane.

Friday, 17 July 2009

Back At Butlins


We are back at Butlins next week in Bognor and Mindhead doing our live Hollywood Look For Less Shows and look forward to giving away some amazing clothes and accessories.
We are also there throughout August at all three locations. It is going to be a stylish fashion experience for anyone who wants to look and feel Hollywood fabulous without spending a penny.

Bridget Jones Has Meat On Her Bones


Rene Zellweger has worked really hard on her LA body and in our humble opinion is looking rather stylish and chic doing a little retail therapy in Beverly Hills this week. How terrible to have worked so hard on getting stick thin to have to eat her way back into the body of the lovely Bridget Jones, yes she is back.
So how ironic that Hollywood has to have a thin person eat herself to death in order to portray a Woman most others can relate to in Bridget Jones three. The yo yo dieting and binging cannot be good for anyone no matter how much money is on the table so it would make sense to show Bridget as a thin person to make sure she gets the man, once and for all.

Taylor Wane British Bombshell And Babe


So being back in LA LA Land had its moments and meeting the fabulous, feisty Jordie lass, turned penthouse pet come adult film star, Taylor Wane was one. She chatted with us as we boarded the flight home, making us laugh out loud as we almost wet our pants, with stories about LA LA Land even more ridiculous than those in our memoir Looking for Harvey Weinstein.
Watch out for Taylor and check out her playboy radio show where she gives sex advice to callers, all in preparation for a PHD in sexology.
She is one HOT lady to watch and someone real in LA LA Land.

Bat Wing SOS For Less



We were amazed as we walked along the strand in Manhattan Beach California, the place where you will find the beautiful people but what is beautiful? Take Madonna who works out like a demon for six hours a day sometimes yet she still has the dreaded bat wing disasters on the catwalk, even wearing D&G.
We have a free way to get rid of the bat wing problem but it takes real hard work and dedication, not six hours but 6 minutes daily for 6 months. Stand upright and stretch your arms out to the side, level with your shoulders, turn your hands upside down, palm facing up then gently move your arms up and down 100 times.
Of course at 50 plus no matter how much hard work you do, it is never going to look young and perfect, so we say just cover up with fabulous sleeves and jackets and except that beauty comes from within.

Plump Lips And Hollywood White Teeth Tips


We have just returned from a very long and enlightening trip back to Las Vegas and LA LA Land in an effort to understand why the allure of Hollywood has not yet been shattered. Las Vegas is still a hot dumping ground for weekend party players and busty blond wannabees all waiting to become famous. LA was like hell for two budget fashion stylists surrounded by the best American style has to offer, thanking God we had picked up some fab unique pieces from the croft car boot sale the day before we left. The truth is, too much plastic surgery coupled with intense sunlight, the ozone layer left two years ago, life in LA is not what it is cracked up to be in the land of the beautiful, not!
We did do some work whilst there though for all you Hollywood Look For Less savvy lifestyle Diva's and came across a little must have that is cheap, works and gets a ten from us. You will need to get on the net and check out the Australian make up collection by Model and Co then find a supplier. The product is called star smile teeth whitener and lipstick. You will be amazed by the results and much cheaper at £17.99 than other Hollywood teeth bleaching systems.

Charity Grand Stand At Oadby Oxfam

We are working hard on our celebrity closet clear out Campaign helping all our local charity shops with much needed donations.

Shopping is the perfect pass time on Rodeo Drive where Chanel, Prada and many other luxury houses have a pretty powerful presence but do not be fooled by what you read, the best kept secret is in vintage.

Many A Lister's can be found bargain hunting in thrift stores on Venice Beach, Melrose Place and Malibu, hoping to find that unique piece to be copied or given to their stylist to create that red carpet look.

Here we are in Oxfam Oadby with shop manager Sue doing one of our celebrity budget style events and open days. It was great fun styling on the spot, giving customers the Hollywood Look For Less using a fab collection of recycled clothes, always of a high standard from Sue and her amazing team of volunteers.

Harvey Nics Or Charity Shop Picks?

In Hollywood credibility is everything when swimming with sharks, stick with what you do best and and the audience will follow.

How can the BBC justify using Mary Portas to become their Queen of charity shops? Lets face it she knows nothing about charity shopping, would never be seen dead wearing something from one and is the face of Harvey Nichols!

They tried to con us all with Twiggys frock exchange but the ratings proved using Twiggy, the face of Marks and Spencer's, would never in a million years be any good at swapping, only shopping!

We are so pleased that the BBC are putting their focus on these subjects but come on lets get real experts on board and show the Nation how to look and feel fabulous without spending a penny for real.

Summer Style For Over 50 Fabulous


In Hollywood being 50 plus is just not an option unless you are Sharon Stone and very rich but we have come up with a look that not only works but also cost under £18.
So how did we do it?
The Hollywood Look For Less top tip to looking amazing at 50 when you are broke is as follows.
Check out your local charity shops or travel further a field and find a fab maxi dress, this one cost us £5 from Cancer Research in Wigston, Leicestershire. The fab green bag was from Help The Aged in Wigston also and cost us just £2. The scarfs were £1 each and came from Mind in Wigston, must be some mad shopaholic Women in that place! The shoes are slides from D&G and came from Cancer Research in Shirley Birmingham at the cost of just £10.
Chanel glasses from the old rich days, models own!!!
