Stacy Forgot to Mention….

February 20th, 2013

Stacy London of the fashion show “What Not To Wear”  showed off  2013 trends.  What she forgot to mention is trends that are in are not for everyone.  Beware!  Always consider your height, shape and age for the trends or any clothing styles for that matter.   One of the best examples is the gladiator shoe.  Personally, I feel they look good on very few women.  If you absolutely love them, try them on, look in the mirror and ask yourself if you are drawing attention to your feet and/or legs.   Do they make your calves look heavy?  Do they make you look shorter?   Do they make you look masculine? Always ask yourself if you’re wearing the trend or the trend is wearing you.

 

 

 

 

 

Closet Confession by Cass Love

February 13th, 2013

Cass Love,  an Austin Singer/Songwriter posted this on Facebook and I’m honored to share with all.  She sums up what my goal is all about.   

This past week I had the honor to spend two mornings with Bonnie.  We went through every piece of clothing that I own, if you know me you know how insane that is.  I still fit in my clothes from high school and college and thus had not gotten rid of much of them.  She narrowed my clothes down to what I actually wear, what works together and fits who I am today and my lifestyle, and now FITS into my tiny closet!  She also helped me put together clothes I never would have thought of combining and accessorize them in a fun way that is totally ME.

This purging of clothes ended up being a major therapy session ridding me of past people and experiences, false ideas I had about the person I am ‘suppose’ to be and dress like, and cleared clutter not just from my closet and drawers but from my mind and heart.  This has led to a purge, organization, and minimization on all fronts of my life, and is opening up the creative floodgates for me again.

I have always needed everything in my environment clean, uncluttered, and pleasing to all of my senses before I write lyrics, music, or embark on a new project.  Maybe it’s just me but if you are a creative type, perhaps you understand.

I am beyond excited about what the future holds, what adventure and song is next, and truly embracing who God made me to be without shame or excuse, cover up, self imposed limitations or sabotage.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Bonnie!  Love Cass Music Info

Playing “The Game”

February 6th, 2013

John Harbaugh & Jim Harbaugh

 

Football is my passion when it comes to game parties and understanding the back-story of players and coaches.  My husband, who’s a sports fan, kept me up-to-date on this year’s Super Bowl.  As many of you are aware, brother coaches, John and Jim Harbaugh, met up with their respectful teams the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers for the big game recently.

Prior to the game they held a joint media conference.

John the eldest, wore a suit, exuded confidence, and dominated the stage based on first impressions.  On the other hand, Jim the younger brother, appeared on stage donned in a 49ers hat, sweat shirt, khaki pants and running shoes.  Now if I didn’t know the back-story and walked into the room while my hubby was watching this television conference, I would have thought it were a coach or GM and his player.

I loved the fact that Jim was who he was and yes he was and continues to be a respected coach.  However, most of us don’t get that chance to show who we are because we are judged first by how we appear.

How trivial this may seem, appearance matters as we all have to “play the game” when we are applying for a job or are working in the job.   You can bring your personality into your work clothing but look in the mirror and ask yourself if you look professional and how would you treat someone dressed like you.

I have intelligent clients who understand they have to “look the part” either for their employees or clients to gain respect.  Hooray for them!

I didn’t write the rules, but the choice is yours to look like a coach or a player for your peers and clients.
