Style and Personality
Style is a reflection of our personality and how we can show our individuality. It is the first impression people get of us before we say a word.
We can be deliberate about this non-verbal communication. Do you want to portray a confident image or your intelligence? Whatever it is, pass the message across clearly! All of these of course, while wearing what you love and having fun with it; life is too short to wear boring clothes and shoes!
Fashion changes with each season, and trying to follow every trend is practically impossible, besides "ain't nobody got time for that!"
Fashion "rules" change faster than you can say Coco Chanel!!! So knowing who you are and what you love is the start of defining your sense of style.
Once you have your style locked down the rest is fun! This of course is easier said than done because style is an evolving art and your perspective of it rests largely on what stage of life you're in.
Trends are great for inspiration but don’t let them alter your style to the point that you don’t recognize yourself.
Having great basic pieces like a pair of black pumps and black pants are classic and never go out of style.
Disclaimer: I don’t have black pumps (I should probably get one), I have a pair of silver pumps ... still classic and that is my style!
I love thrift and consignment shopping. The pros are that I can save money while buying items I absolutely love, items that fit and look good on me, without necessarily being the trend; I can also use that to opportunity to give away items that don't reflect my current style.
You can further put your unique signature on items by your combinations and statement accessories. Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it.
So whatever your style Live Bold! Live Beautiful!!!
