When you've grown to understand the true meaning of style, you realize that it is far beyond what many people think and know that it leaves clues to yourself about who you are.
It's time to celebrate women's history in the month of March and it's important to understand the reason why it's needed even though women should be celebrated all year long year after year.
Women have come a long way in gaining their power in the world. Even though there are still major challenges in women proving they are just as capable (if not more capable) as men in performing certain tasks, much progress has been made overtime.
I consider we can often be underdressed but your can never be overdressed. There is usually a shift in your confidence level when you don't believe you are dressed on a similar level to those around you. When you are what is considered, underdressed, your confidence is lower because you have the perception that you aren't as good as those around you. However, when your look makes you feel you are dressed as someone who is most influential to others, it is a beautiful thing.
I don't wear much makeup because I am confident in knowing I am beautiful just the way I am and I don't need to "make myself up'," yet when it comes to highlighting my features, you will catch me wearing lipstick if nothing else.. Why? Because it draws attention to the powerful words I speak. I believe it gives the perception that whatever I say is more important than it would be without it. But you will have to understand how to use color to your advantage to realize this power of color on your lips.
Whenever you get dressed, you should have a purpose for doing so. You are always dressing for yourself whether you realize it or not and you are always dressing for a purpose but understanding your true purpose for getting dressed may take some thinking to understand.
Being jealous comes naturally but how you react to your jealousy is your choice.. I know when I graduated from college without a single ideal job offer and no boyfriend that would soon be my husband, not only was I upset that my goals weren't achieved, I was also highly jealous of my friends and people around me who were.. But overtime, I realized that my focus on not having what I want was the very thing that made me jealous and angry.
Although the focus is always about the product that a model is selling, if a model does not feel confident and beautiful, the product simply will not sell and that is why models should be treated as more than mannequins. It is a model's confidence and belief that allows them to perform well.
"Dreams really do come true when you have the courage to pursue them. I am no different than anyone else that has big dreams and a big vision, I just decided to take massive action every day regardless of what was placed in my path and that is when the magic happens." -Stephanie Nickolich
