When it comes to styling my clients, I am the proudest when they call me.
They have finally realized that they want to make a small change which can make a big difference in their self-esteem.
We all have small changes that we deal with in our life.
I remember, I would never step out of the house without makeup when I was younger. I was so worried that I would see the cute boy or the pretty friends and I wouldn’t dare want them to see me without makeup.
When you are young your insecurities seem to sky rocket. If I would have known then, that being confident in yourself was going to get you a lot further than the makeup I was wearing then I think I could of floated through those dreaded teenage years a lot easier.
This was me and my sweet childhood friend Misty, before and after. It looks like we had a lot confidence..lol! I have the best memories with this sweet friend.
That’s what we need to teach our children to take in every moment good and bad. Those are the memories that will forever change you hopefully in a good way.
I was so shy in High School (Can you believe that?). These were a great group of classmates to have always included me.
Fast forward to now, it’s so funny how life and things in life can change your perspective on yourself and others.
Getting older, wiser, having a family, and some pretty awesome friends can really take any insecurity you have away. Especially those family members and friends who love you no matter what you do, what you look like, or even where you come from.
These are just a few pictures of those important peeps in my life. I have many more important folks that’s for sure.
I enjoy working with my clients probably just as much as they enjoy calling me. This allows me to guide them in the direction that I think as women we all lack, confidence in ourselves.
We all have our insecurities, in order to gain that confidence needed, it takes making the most of our insecurities.
1. Remember, nobody or body is perfect.
We all have our insecurities. Make your insecurities a positive part of your styling experience. If you don’t like your legs find pants, skirts, shoes etc that will allow you to love them and make them your best asset.
2. Embrace your body from head to toe with your own style
Understanding your body shape, embracing all those areas that you may think are your worse assets and knowing how to flatter them will help you embrace your curves, or lack thereof in some cases.
3. Define your personal style and when you do, accept it!
Feel confident that you always look absolutely marvelous. Learn to love your shape and how to flatter it with clothing.
4. Understand that it doesn’t matter your shape, size, hair color or skin color.
It’s all about being confident in yourself. The more confident you are with your own personal style the more confident you will appear in your clothing. That’s because you’ll intuitively choose pieces that are complete you.
I always tell my clients that your choice of clothes is more likely to be a reflection of who you are. They can be the real meaning behind your personality.
Nowadays, I certainly don’t mind walking past a mirror in the mornings and allowing myself to say, I have changed and I enjoy my change. I embrace it!
Being a mom, and being in my 30’s has brought a new perspective in my life, one that I wish I had as a teenager.
I enjoy sharing styling advice through my blog, public speaking events, with my clients and Parent Magazine.
God had a plan throughout those dreaded teenage years that I lacked so much confidence in. Don’t get me wrong, I still have my ups and downs as a woman and that’s ok.
I embrace each flaw and insecurity as a gift, this allows me to relate to each and everyone of you on the same level. God chose my gift of styling and allowing me to help women achieve the one thing that they love most…feeling confident in themselves.
Remember, simply by allowing yourself to take that first step in whatever your insecurities may be and embracing them can be the most effective way in boosting that confidence that you deserve.
