I love Clothing Swaps and here’s why: COMMUNITY – We need it now more than ever ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH – yay sustainable fashion BREAKING HABITS – this is a low-risk opportunity to try clothes you haven’t been willing to spend money on. Get ‘em. Try ‘em out. Fall in love with new styles! On that note, … Read More
Dance Like You’re Naked
Ok, forget the naked part. That was just to get you to read my blog 😃. I went dancing with a friend a few weeks ago. I was OBSESSED with the outfits! It was the most unapologetically dressed crew I’ve seen in a while. Even though the party had a theme – “80’s & 90’s” … Read More
I Couldn’t Help It!
It’s February 14th. YOU GOTTTTT TO LOVE YOURSELF! I told you I couldn’t help it 😘. But to clarify – self-love is an overused term that includes shit that’s goofy, unsustainable and full of privilege. So what does it look like to really find love for yourself? It’s a private, intimate process and you gotta … Read More
But at What Cost?
I enrolled two new clients into my 3-month 1:1 Fashion Therapy Program last week, one in Greenville, SC and one in NYC. Both clients asked for something very specific: “I neeeed quality clothes.” One babe got a promotion (woohoo!) and is ready to step into her new position in style. The other recently pivoted in … Read More
You Have to Test Drive It!
YIKES! You know that feeling when you think your outfit’s gunna be great, but you arrive to your destination feeling TERRIBLE?! Here’s some reasons why your outfit flopped: You last minute realize you don’t have shoes to match It’s too tight after lunch (more on this another time) It sags & bags before you even … Read More
Set an Intention NOT a Resolution
What would it look like, or better yet feel like if you set a personal style New Year intention rather than a resolution? An intention could be as simple as “I want to enjoy getting dressed this year.” It’s relaxed and it’s fluid. So then what’s the difference? The dictionary definition of resolution is “a … Read More
I Wish I Could Have You Forever
“I Wish I Could Have You Forever.” A client said this to me last week as we are approaching the halfway mark of her 3-month 1:1 Fashion Therapy program. Whoa, I thought. What a compliment. The good news is, she CAN have me forever! Well, as long as we both value having a personal style … Read More
I Have No Style Anymore
Well, it’s only partially true that I no longer have a style. I’m writing to you from my sick bed (I’m like a level 10 Housewives of NJ drama right now). But really, this has been a shit week. We have the flu. My dear Mother-in-Law passed away last week after a 25 year health … Read More
Aging in Style
Listening to Glennon Doyle’s We Can Do Hard Things with Ashton Applewhite, I was struck by her comment about why the best is yet to come – “We grow more different from each other as we age.” She was talking about our unique differences. Our shapes, lines and colors and what a gift it is … Read More
Clothes Are Just Fabric
A friend of mine shared a quote from content creator, Dominique Gabriel, who said “Clothes do not have a gender. They are not male or female. They’re just fabric.” PHEW, FINALLY people are talking about this. I’m ready to throw out the boxes telling us what to wear and not wear and when we’re “allowed” … Read More
