When I introduced Maggie Paine, I wrote about the relationship between self-confidence and style, and how one is not the by-product of the other. And yet I also wrote that style and self-confidence often go together. It’s true, for example, that a person can find an authentic sense of style that provides comfort and builds confidence.
Of course, the journey to find an authentic sense of style is personal – and it often has more to do with a sense of self than it does clothes or fashion. I’ve learned that finding style is a process, one that’s just as much an inward journey as it is an outward one. And I’m grateful to be part of this process and even to help guide it with my clients.
None of my clients look the same, and every one of them has different goals. My job is to listen and understand those goals. The main reason I’m doing this, in fact, is to help others. I do that by working with them so that they can discover their own personal sense of style. Throughout this journey, I encourage people to find the best in themselves and to shift their thoughts to the positive; it’s a slight but important change in perspective...
Until next time,
