Why Does Getting Dressed Feel Sooo Hard?

womancloset.jpg

If you're like me you probably learned to get dressed when you were four or five years old. Kindergarten or preschool?

Or at least your mother allowed you to go out of the house with your personal picks.

So WHY at 40, 50 or 60 years old does it seem sooo hard to get dressed?

33-1.jpg

Each time I work with a new client, I continue to understand and receive new insight into the struggles and challenges of getting dressed.

You try on 3-4 outfits for every event and settle on the "best one" or the one that is "good enough."

You wear repeat outfits and it gets old fast.

Wishing you looked and felt better in your clothes.

  • Could be the style or color that's not right

  • A trend that doesn't serve you

  • Your girlfriend that told you it looked great, deep down inside you knew it wasn't right but you bought it anyway

  • Fit isn't complementary to your body shape

  • You're not the same size you were a couple of years ago

I can help you discern:

  • Color

  • Fit

  • Proportions

  • Style

I pride myself on helping you curate a wardrobe that FITS YOU NOW!

As you arrive for your appointment, ALL the clothes are mindfully selected for you before you arrive.

I just ask you to show up with an open mind to see yourself as a whole person (a package) not the ONE thing you don't like about yourself. 

Recently, I was in the dressing room with my client Shelley. She hired me because she was in a transition with her career. She didn't have outfits in her closet that she felt confident in.

She was missing those go-to-outfits that made getting dressed easy.

As I observed from the distance, the look on her face as she tried on every last piece of clothing that FIT her body type. (And yes, she was NOT the size she once was)

PRICELESS.

She felt like a million bucks.

She smiled at herself with delight.

Oozing with Confidence.

She had a budget in mind and ended up spending double the budget because she found so many pieces that made her feel like a million bucks.

What's it costing you to wait until...

Life is short and wouldn't you love to FEEL CONFIDENT NOW?

Not in 2 months or 2 years?

Honoring the body you have NOW is a gift you can give yourself today.

When you fight against your body you only cause frustration and angst.

Annette, I'm ready to start LOVING my closet and want it filled with pieces that reflect my unique style and also FIT!

Navigating the World of Personal Style

IMG_1139.jpg

Style Confidence. Do You Have It?

Do you ever feel like finding your personal style is somewhat of a mystery? You take a style quiz and it tells you, you are classy chic, modern elegant, or boho?

So now you go looking for clothing pieces to match the "style quiz." You go into the dressing room with a handful of dresses trying to find what looks like "classy chic."

What you discover is the style doesn't fit your body type.

You're not sure about the color.

Then you catch a glimpse of a dress that's really fantastic, you love it but it's not really classy chic. Confused?

Wondering how to navigate the world of Personal Style?

Recently I was browsing YouTube to see what the "YouTube style experts" had to say on the subject of finding personal style. It was suggested that I go into my closet and see what I have "a lot of". Meaning I feel super comfortable in that style. Conclusion: that is my personal style.

REALLY...is that all I have to do? If it was that simple then why are so many women feeling frustrated with their wardrobe.

In a survey I conducted a few months ago asking, "what are your biggest style challenges?"

Women told me...

Sick and tired of feeling frumpy. What styles are right for my body type? Help me to understand what styles compliment my body type.

How do I dress appropriately for the next level in business? How do I communicate who I am? I want to look credible.

I have too many clothes. Where do I shop? How do I begin building a wardrobe.

What I know and believe: Style Confidence begins with the woman and NOT the clothes.

You're wondering, "Where do I start?"

First it begins with you. Who are you?

Second, I believe your clothing represents what you want to say without needing to say it.

We are multi-faceted women.

If you're like me, I love to express myself in different ways on different days. I love wearing a multitude of colors and styles.

Questions to Ponder:

1.Who am I? What do you value? If you could pick one word to describe you, what would it be?

2.How do you want to be perceived?

3. What do you want others to know about you?

4.What do you want to attract into your life?

5.What is your body type?

6.What is your natural coloring?

Why are all these questions important? 

The essence of Personal Style begins with you. What you choose to wear everyday tells me a little about you.

I BELIEVE that Style Confidence begins with the woman and NOT the clothes.

Why does it matter? You feel comfortable in your own skin. You're authentic.

Your clothing is there to support your dreams and goals. Not just another pretty dress.

When you have a Style Confidence Plan; dressing, shopping, mixing and matching and choosing colors becomes effortless.

If you're thinking, Annette I would LOVE to have all those questions answered. I'm tired of the confusion, self-doubt and navigating the world of Personal Style on my own.

I Invite you to join me on Saturday, June 2nd for a Fashion Feng Shui Workshop where we'll spend 5.5 hours honing in on your Personal Style. Leaving you with a plan of action to develop and achieve Style Confidence.
