Goldie Hawn's Secret

Happy New Year!

As I was contemplating what to share, I came across this quote from several year's back. It really spoke to me as we enter into the New Year.

"There’s no outfit in the world that will be more head-turning than a woman who walks into a room with great energy," Kate Hudson told Style.com recently when asked what she's learned from her famous mother. "That’s what really makes people magnetic. When someone feels good about herself, is comfortable in her skin, and has inner strength, it doesn’t matter what she’s wearing. They become the most interesting person in the room."

You may not be a Kate Hudson or Goldie Hawn but I know I love a woman with great positive energy and what she brings to a conversation.

As you look into the New Year maybe it's a change in how you express your inner self vs. what you're going to accomplish or achieve.

Personally, I love clicking the refresh button and beginning anew.

When I clicked the refresh button on December 31st, I chose the word ALIVE to guide me in 2019. For me, there's a lot of energy in the word ALIVE.

Maybe that is why the Kate Hudson quote spoke to me so loudly. 

When I chose the word ALIVE it fired me up to:

  • BE more of me. Share my voice, have fun, let go of the fear and inspire others. Do what lights me up!

You may or may not have lofty goals for 2019 on what you're planning to achieve, earn, do and have.

What if...you decide to BE the woman who shows up with more energy?

What if...you decide to BE the woman who's more purposeful with her wardrobe?

What if...you decide to BE the woman who thinks more positively?

Refining who you BE doesn't cost you a dime but it could change how you see and feel about yourself from the inside out. And I guarantee others will feel your energy as you walk into the room. .

I BELIEVE there isn't a more powerful feeling than when your outfit truly expresses who you are. It represents everything you want to say without you speaking a word. ~ Annette Bond

Where Do I Begin If I Hate Shopping?

Have you ever fantasized that if you bought ALL NEW Clothes you would instantly love your wardrobe?

Possibly or you could be back to where you began, wearing only 20% of your clothes because your game plan was ONLY to buy new.

What if...you took a good look at the clothes you already have and access why you like them and why you don't. That would give you some clues to moving forward.

You hate to shop so you bought what's on the mannequin. The sales person told you it looked great, you bought it. It was on sale, gotta buy it.

You wore it a time or two and now you don't like it.

Hmm-mm....WHY is that?

I believe it's important to find out why, so you don't keep bringing the same pieces to the party that you DON'T wear and are not sure why.

Or maybe you LOVE the piece, but don't wear it.

Hmm-mm...WHY is that?

Maybe it just needs a great shoe. Or accessorizing?

OR maybe you're a Steve Jobs kinda person and love the simpleness of a "signature look." That's great if you're OK with it.

Imagine your closet filled with pieces that reflect your unique style...Picture yourself feeling like a million bucks every time you get dressed.

In my initial Style Interview with a new client one of our focus points is to uncover her challenges.

Sometimes it's the simpleness of adding a NEW deliberate piece.

I was in Laurie's closet recently who loves simple and doesn't have many prints. She gets frustrated with shopping and tends to buy only solids.

Prints can sometimes be scary.

Through our Style Interview and spending time in her ClosetI learned about her likes and dislikes, I knew the perfect print for her.

It happened to be in a pair of pants - she tried them on and LOVED them. Her eyes lit up.

A big smile came over her face as she looked in the mirror.

We accessed the tops and sweaters in her closet that she could wear with her NEW Print Pants. This NEW pant brought a freshness to her wardrobe.

Sometimes it can be that ONE piece that revitalizes your wardrobe.

Who you are at the core will be the single most important thread of our work together. Understanding your work environment and lifestyle and what's already in your closet allows me to select pieces that you may never have considered. (YES, I shop for You!)

It's not always about having heaps of clothes, but having the "right" pieces enabling you to get dressed in seconds while LOVING your wardrobe because it feels like you.
