Style Personality: Classic, Chic, Conservative

Hello Ladies, In my previous article entitled What is Your Style Personality? And Why is It Important I mentioned that I would follow-up with a series of companion articles explaining more in depth each of the 6 style personalities. Today I will explain in more detail the first of the 6 style personalities and that would be the Classic, Chic, Conservative style personality. However, before we start I would like to preface this article by stating that you may not fall neatly into any one specific style personality. Interestingly, you may intersect with 2 or 3 alternative style personalities that suit your personal style preferences. If you would like to learn and discover more about your style personality I highly suggest you review the Essence of Style Development Program which I ... View Post

Inspired: Own Your Personal Style

Hello Ladies, Diane von Furstenberg said it best “assume-toi” – own oneself – a profound quote from her inspiring and motivational auto biography The Woman I Wanted to Be, which has influenced and guided me in my own personal transformation of rediscovering my personal style without limitation.  To own oneself, in my opinion, is to authentically trust and know who you are from within and to own it unapologetically, which ultimately is illuminated through your visual presence, also known as your personal style. As such, for one to own their personal style is to embrace all of who they are intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically. When we are clear about the image we want to project out into the world, for example as an entrepreneur, C-level executive, creative professional ... View Post

Your Truth Will Piss You Off First, Before It Sets You Free

Hello Ladies, Transitioning from one phase of life to the next can be a very scary and tumultuous experience, especially when you do not have an established support system already in place to catch you if you fall during your transition, and believe me you will stumble and perhaps even fall, sorry but it's the truth; however, what’s even more important is found in the process of getting back up and allowing your truth to first piss you off and then utilizing that energy to create a life that is empowered and fueled with passion and purpose. As part of my preparation for today’s post I spent some time reviewing my first reflection journal that I was encouraged to start writing in as a way to focus my thoughts, but to also give myself a private, non-judgmental space to empty my emotions ...

Forgive Yourself:
Calling Out Your Past

Hello Ladies, Let's chat about how to forgive yourself after a big mistake. We all have a past. A situation, personal choice or unfortunate happenstance we’ve experienced at some point in our lives that may have left a negative residue behind we just can’t seem to get rid of; as a result, delaying our ability to purposefully turn to a fresh page in our life and start over again. I myself have also experienced this delay to move forward without constantly looking over my shoulder at my past mistakes and perceived inadequacies. To be honest, some days I feel like Superwoman and on other days those old, negative, toxic memories and unsavory decisions try to get the best of who I am divinely evolving into as an image consultant and transitional life coach for women. I have spent the last ... View Post

Speaking Your Truth & Standing in Your Power

Hello Ladies, This particular post took me a while to put together because this is more of a personal reflection I’ve decided to share with you regarding the day I had officially decided to take back control of my life from the grips of mediocrity, stagnation, and emptiness that I had been experiencing for quite some time, but unsure of how I was going to fight back against what I had perceived to be the impossible; due to the fact that over the years I had disconnected and forgotten the essence of who I am as an empowered, spiritual being; one who lacked, at the then time, the courage and strength to elevate myself out of the dark abyss my life had momentarily descended into. As I sit here typing these words I feel somewhat apprehensive sharing with you the beginnings of my quarter ... View Post

Redefining Your Personal Style and Image:
The Power of Clothing

Hello Ladies, Many women who are currently experiencing transformative life transitions have temporarily experienced losing their identity and self-direction in life, which ultimately contributes further to their dissatisfaction of the life they are currently living and no longer identify with. I also found myself at a crossroad when I too was undergoing a profound spiritual shift that resulted in a powerful transition within my own life, which led to the realization that my personal brand at the then time no longer suited or reflected the new direction my life was heading in, nor telegraphed the image I wanted to impress upon other people in my life, both personally and professionally. When our lifestyle does not authentically align with our core personal values and our life’s ... View Post
