Take a moment to think about these two questions. If I could show you how to resolve one body type challenge, what would it be? Which part of your body challenges you most when it comes to creating signature style?
Whatever your challenge is, I will be offering a solution this week, so stay tuned.
Resolving Style Challenges
What keeps you from creating the signature style you want?
I remember when I was in my mid-20s and it occurred to me that maybe every woman could be beautiful. I had been to a woman's show, and stopped at two booths that had image consultants, and I learned that it was their job to take whatever their clients handed them - challenges, problem areas, etc. - and create something beautiful with it.
When I was younger, I thought that if you were overweight, that was the cause of any and all figure challenges, and your best bet was either to ignore them, or to wear tent dresses.
But the image consultants were teaching women little tricks that would make them look better, even if nothing changed. That idea was revolutionary to me, and one way or another, I have been dedicated to style ever since.
Today, I will pass on one of the tricks I have learned.
And by the way, I did come to believe that every woman could be beautiful, and indeed, already is!
Columns: A Signature Style Solution Every Woman Can Use
Whether you need to create an inside column or an outside one depends on where your challenges are.
My biggest challenge is my belly, so I need an inside column, like the one above.
But let's say yours is that you hips are wider than your shoulders. You would want to try an outside column.
Using the example above, her jacket would be black and her top an animal print. I'd suggest that her jacket be shorter, too.
Have you ever worked with an image consultant?
And if not, would you like to? ;)
My passion is virtual style days because it gives us so much time to address every facet of creating signature style, including all the tips and tricks that resolve style challenges.
Though I don't believe that the standard of beauty is the hourglass figure and I think that honoring your basic style type is better than hiding behind another one, I do think that every woman should know how to redirect attention away from problem areas if she wants to do so.
Do you agree?
See you tomorrow!
My mission is to help you discover, embrace and celebrate your own beauty and style.
Thanks for dropping by! I'll see you soon.
