Hi my fellow rockstars!
For the new year, has anyone decided to revamp their style? Maybe you are a Boho chic hippie and want to change things up to appear more polished…
OR maybe you want to be more bold + creative with accessories…OR maybe you live in your gym clothes 24/7 and need a total style over-haul…OR maybe you’re on the frumpy side and want to hone your inner Sophia Vergara!
Remember your image is a non-verbal message to the world. What message are you sending? For example, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the hippie look? A care-free, artistic person, right? It’s interesting– there is so much debate lately about Kate Hudson being the new face of the clothing line, Ann Taylor. Every style blogger is blogging about the subject (Ha, myself included). The reason for all the debate is the very topic of IMAGE. Kate is known for her youthful, bohemian, free-spirit look and attitude. Ann Taylor is an upscale, chic women’s line known for it’s feminine business suiting. Most people do not see Kate & Ann Taylor as a fit– image wise. But, perhaps Ann Taylor wants to revamp the brands IMAGE and maybe Kate is growing up and wants to change the “message” she’s sending the world!
Do you want to revamp your image this year?
Your image and personal style is a creative expression of YOU! Look over your life since you were a teenager and you’ll see how as you’ve grown and developed– so has your style. I started experimenting with fashion and developing my own unique style when I was in Junior High. (Thanks Mom for allowing me this creative outlet and putting up with me playing on your sewing machine). One day I looked like Madonna and the next day I looked like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s–and a week later I looked like a Cyndi Lauper wannabe- Geesh! Not cute! Then in my 20’s I had the model/club/party girl look down. Most of my wardrobe was from Bebe, Express and Rave (which was a lower version of Contempo). Yikes I’m totally dating myself! WHO REMEMBERS CONTEMPO? My BFF and I went through a mini-skirt and platform combat boot phase (I wish I had a photo to show you). Let’s just forget all about the “message” we were sending the world. Delete- delete-delete! Hey, that’s what your 20’s are for- trial and error, right!
Jump to TODAY- what message are you actually sending to the world? Do you want to change it or are you perfectly happy and confident in your IMAGE? At the end of the day, you have to be happy with your reflection in the mirror and comfortable in your own skin, but if you want to be a real estate powerhouse- the Boho Chic look is not going to help you sell those $5M mansions. Assess your message!
A HEALTHY REMINDER:
I highly recommend adding fresh juices to your lifestyle! I’ve been juicing for about a month and feel amazing. Carrot, ginger, apple, celery and sometime beet, kale or blueberries!
