“If we’re able to see ourselves in a way that creates a positive emotion, perhaps we will engage less in negative thinking about ourselves and feel less need to compare ourselves to others.” — JENNIFER PFEUFFER, PSYD It’s no surprise that a lot of people are having a hard time knowing what to wear in … Read More

I Give You Permission To…

Sol Reflection

I give you permission to… WEAR WHAT YOU WANT. Last week I talked about giving my clients permission to wear what they want, when they want, no exceptions. The rules you’re following are NOT yours. I promise. You THINK you’re making the rules because they support likes and dislikes you have about your body. Or … Read More

What’s YOUR Birthday ‘Fit?

Sol Reflection

I need to brag on my clients for a minute. Many of you all come to me with a little bit of self-doubt and a lot-a-bit of style! You may not be sure about your style, but let’s give a little credit for some of the cool stuff you own! And however you come, love … Read More

You ARE Beautiful, I Promise

As she was talking, I thought this is what I want for ALL my clients, always. And I made a little video out of it. This is what my prospective client … Read More

You Can Do it Too!

Sol Reflection

Last week I was featured on Patrick Casale’s podcast, “All Things Private Practice” where he interviewed me about leaving my cushy but terribly confining government job to start my own business as The Fashion Therapist. Hint: It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. You will want to listen to this podcast if: You’re dying … Read More

Do Clothes Affect Your Brain?

Sol Reflection

I came across this cool NPR + Elle Magazine study (5 minute video) about how clothes and fashion affect your brain. I’ve always known that clothes affect how you think and feel about yourself, yet I talk with people weekly who believe clothes are superficial and treat them as an afterthought. The way I see … Read More

Did You Get It?!

Look at all you lovely humans who sent selfies of yourselves feeling amazing in your clothes :). Not only do you look great, it’s clear you FEEL great too! And that is inspiring!

Sol Reflection

First of all, I hope you had a sweet Valentine’s Day and that you felt some kinda love, especially the kind where you love YOURSELF! In the seasonal Facebook Groups I run, members show themselves love by posting selfies in outfits they feel good in. It’s been a few months since I ran one of … Read More
