I knew that I wanted to do personal styling, fashion was always a passion of mine, and helping women feel good about themselves is something I also was really passionate about, so I felt like the two really meshed together.”
“Through fashion blogging I realized that not only did we have this body image issue to address, but also the overconsumption and constant need to keep up with the trends.It was just never enough..”
“The first step is getting really clear on what I really wanted out of life and the goals that I had for the next year or five years. For me, that included doing a vision board, which I know it seems like a lot of work, but understand you are going to need to put in the work to make this last and make this worth your while.”
“I think I had just gotten to the point where I was just so sick of where these clothes had gotten me to, so I didn’t really have a positive association with the clothing anymore.”
“It’s okay to wear something more than once. I think that, especially here in the states, it’s such a like ‘oh my gosh, she wore that to another party.’ I think that’s totally fine and I am not ashamed to be a repeat offender when it comes to my wardrobe.”
“I try to base my shopping more based on ‘is it consciously made, is it socially responsible?’ and I think that might be something , you know if you are having a hard time not shopping, looking into that might help you look at it in a different way.”
“The goal is to leave them with a strategic wardrobe, more confidence, and so that they are really clear on their style too."
