Every day there are opportunities to give yourself a fresh look.
But are you finding that these good intentions are still – season after season – leaving you in the same yoga pants and sweat shirt?
Have you tried to get your mojo back, but default to nojo?
It may be time to get professional help. And by professional, I mean a style intervention.
A good stylist doesn’t just know about trends and try to force feed them on you… they learn about your personality, preferences… and may even uncover a few demons that are holding you back… not just in appearance, but, in LIFE!
Honestly. Wearing something pretty to make yourself feel better is short-lived compared to feeling happy, being pretty on the inside and letting your clothing be a reflection of who you are.
I’m no genie in a bottle, BUT, I do happen to know some fantastic stylists who have boatloads of great strategies.
Recently, one of these lovely ladies, Kristina Moore founder of Corporate Fashionista wrote a wonderful article providing all sorts of ideas around how your attitude or perspective may be preventing you from feeling good (and doing good) around your appearance.
One of the key concepts she addresses is the devil in comparing. There is no faster way to feel crummy than to compare your insides to someone else’s outsides. And for some crazy reason, we often tend to evaluate ourselves vs. others when we already feel most vulnerable, which even further intensifies the feelings.
You can think you know how others relationships, family, clothing, skin, style and general lifestyle is so much “better” or “more.” But, the reality is… we simply don’t know what their truths are. Or what it’s like to live in their skin.
What’s important is… what is true for YOU?
What’s going on in your life? With your body? With relationships? Answering these deeper questions can elevate your mood and style faster (and cheaper) than a shopping spree.
Kristina asks some great questions and I hope you’ll get to know her. Her helpful questions that’ll help you get your groove back are HERE. I hope you enjoy her as much I do!
Please let me know in the comments below what this gets you thinking about? What’s one inside thing you could shift that would affect your outside? I can’t wait to hear from you. Really, this is spirit and joy building, my friend.
Now get to it! You can read her full article here.
And remember, I am most definitely in your corner…

p.s. My two other favorite stylists are Cori Burchell (she’s a costume designer for film as well) and Alexandra Greenawalt in NYC. They’re doing all sorts of great things, too!
