Ok ladies, time to get real. How do you see yourself? Seriously.
While I was sweating my ass off at the gym last night I decided to catch an episode if TLCs What Not To Wear. I adore Stacy and Clinton and find their advice for style intriguing. At any rate, the woman that they were making over was a style editor who was incredibly cute and was hiding under frumpy fashions and shapeless hair. Why? Because she wasn’t comfortable with herself.
I think as women we all struggle with self image and a huge part of that is seeing what the “ideal” woman is on TV and in Magazines. Fact of the matter is, those women are beautiful yes, but, if you are confident in who you are, dress for your body type and have a style that suits your bone structure and skin tone, you will kill it no matter what! (Even if you aren’t a size negative two!)
My advice to you would be the same as what Stacy and Clinton gave to this lovely woman: Stop listening to the negative voices in your head, they lie to you. Look for the parts of yourself that you love and highlight those features. Maybe its your eye color, or the shape of your jaw, your shoulders, or how long your legs are, emphasize your best assets. For instance, I love my collar bones and my chest bones, because I have defined bone structure here I tend to play up those areas.
When all was said and done, the woman was so excited to have shed the idea of who she thought she was and how she thought she looked and instead embracing the woman that she actually is. So liberating and I love it!
So go in confidence, find the woman you ARE and as always stay fabulous!blog comments powered by Disqus
