The only person you should want to be is yourself. It is hard to pretend to be someone you are not and why would you ever want to be somebody else? People will often present the positive things that are going on in their life and if it's not positive, they will often change their story to make it positive or won't share it. So never get jealous and think someone is living a better life than you are because the grass is not always greener on the other side.
So many people speak about the staple pieces that you truly should have in your closet, which are usually basic and it's almost common sense. Of course you need a "little black dress" for your special occasions and an everyday blazer to make anything professional but it's also important to have pieces that speak who you are on a higher level. While I could go on and on about pieces that you should have in your closet, I'm going to give you 5 that I think are essential for a woman of style.
You have tons of clothes that you fill in your walk-in closet and chester drawers but nearly every time you go somewhere, you always feel the need to shop for something new. Sometimes we will end up purchasing everything but what we were looking for. Have you ever realized how ridiculous this sounds? We either purchase things that we like for the moment, we appreciate the art or we are just not good at successful at shopping for ourselves. So we end up with items that stay in our closet for years as we consistently shop for new pieces.
We have all experienced enough heartache in our lives where we have just wanted to give up and dwell on our pain at some point. Either we want people to feel sorry for us or we want to use it as an excuse as to why we cannot move forward. Whatever the reason, we do not accomplish anything when we allow our pain to consume us. We are preventing positive opportunities from reaching us because we have stopped walking along the path of life at the point of heartache and pain. Why would we want our sufferings to have power over us?
Women love to shop because its therapy in a way. Most of us get excited about finding new pieces that we fall in love with, which is a great thing. However, we shouldn't throw money away on things that we'll never wear or are simply a bad investment. We need to educate ourselves on how to be a smart shopper.
You may already know how to define your style but when someone asks you, "what's your style," do you really know how to answer that question? It's important to understand what is considered a personal style statement. Some people relate the quality of the items to categorize their style (ready-to-wear, couture, etc) while others consider the dress code (semi-formal, casual, etc.) but neither are correct.
Although it's important for us to express ourselves through our personal style, it can be challenging when we are sometimes confined to certain colors and pieces. We sometimes have to dress catered to a uniform, a color dress code or a style occasion requirement (ex. semi-formal).
When you're growing up, you think you have about 20 best friends but as you get older, you start to learn what it really means to be a friend.
Many times we say things we don't mean and speak about the negative things in our lives but it's important to be impeccable with your words as they truly have an impact on your life. Have you ever wondered why when you say "it can't get any worse," it actually does? What about when you speak about someone who you haven't seen in a while and they show up out of nowhere? It's not really a coincidence
So with all the posts I've created that discuss the importance of style, I realized I need to discuss how to define your personal style. We know what we like and what we don't like but why do we gravitate towards one item and not the other?
