Fashion and Style from A to Z

I was online the other day and saw one of those A to Z lists. You know the ones where they list all of the letters in the alphabet and come up with a word or phrase that starts with the letter and works with the topic. Like “Dream Destinations from A to Z” or “Holiday Gifts from A to Z.”

I really like those lists. They always get my brain in gear and thinking about the topic at hand. So, I decided to take a stab at my very own A to Z list - Fashion and Style from A to Z

Are you ready to think about style and fashion? Yes, really think about it! Because it’s not as easy as grabbing something from your closet and walking out the door. It involves thoughtful choices that make you look and feel your best.

Be brave. This one can be hard when it comes to style, but you’ve definitely got it in you. It involves taking an honest look at yourself and deciding what you truly want.

Confidence is what it’s all about. There are no truer words when it comes to style. Your clothes should make you feel confident - at the office, at home, at the supermarket, on a date - no matter where you go!

Does it overwhelm you to think about shopping? I hear this a lot. Whether you don’t like to shop, don’t know what to buy, or you’re not sure where to go - shopping is not everyone’s cup of tea. But I can help!

Everyone deserves to look their best. This is one of the principles I firmly believe in - that’s why I love what I do.

Fashion is fun. YES!!! It is! And showcasing your own personal style is what’s most important!

Go out and try a new accessory. If you’re looking to make a change to your style, but want to start small - accessories are the way to go! They’re like the icing on your fashion cake! And a new one could be just what you need!

Help is here if you want it. When it comes to style and fashion, a personal stylist can help. 

I LOVE EMPOWERING WOMEN TO BE RADIANT. This gets ALL the bold letters - because it’s so true. I love what I do - and what I do is make sure you feel radiant - inside and out.

Just because it sounds hard doesn’t mean it is. I had a client say that fashion is hard. Well, so is plumbing if that’s not your area of expertise. Or, calculus if that’s not where you passion lies. Don’t let fashion and style be hard. Let an expert help you.

Kick up your style a notch or two. I often tell my clients to try this. By taking your style up a notch (or two), you’re going to find that you love how you look - no matter the situation. 

Less is more. Coco Chanel said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” She was right! Less can definitely be more when it comes to your personal style.

Many women procrastinate in taking time for themselves. Women are busy. With spouses, kids, and careers - you may not be taking any time for you. Don’t let that be the case. Your personal style impacts all aspects of your life - so take some time and invest in yourself.

Not sure where to shop. There are so many places to look when it comes to finding what works for you that you may not even know where to go. But I do! My job is to know where all the fantastic clothes and accessories are that my clients are looking for.

On-trend may not always be the answer. Trends have their place, but they’re not the only answer out there. They need to be incorporated to work with your own personal style.

Plan where to shop and what to buy. Shopping requires a plan. You want to make sure you’re getting what you need and not “buying just to buy” or just because "it's a good deal."

Quiet the voice inside your head. Too often we are our own worst critics. Don’t let that be the case when it comes to how you want to look and feel.

Radiate. One of the definitions of radiate is to “shine brightly.” That’s how your clothes should make you feel. 

Shop with a strategy and budget in mind. You can’t have a fashion and style A to Z list and not have the “S” be SHOP! Shop with a strategy and budget in mind. Know what you are looking for and stick to your plan. If you don’t love it, don’t buy it. If you don’t see what you want, wait until you do and don’t settle because that is what will hang in the closet and not get worn. Wear what you love and love what you wear.

Trust yourself, but if you’re not sure, ask for some help and guidance. Your personal style is just that - personal to you. I promise you that I will help you achieve whatever works best for you.

Unveil an elevated you and find out how amazing you feel! Just wait ‘til the compliments start rolling in.

Value an expert and what they can add to your life.

Wardrobe consultation. Have you ever had one? If you’ve got a closet full of clothes that you don’t know what to do with - it’s time for one of these!

Xtraordinary. People hear this word, and some may think it sounds a bit scary. It can have you thinking “over-the-top,” but it doesn’t have to be like that. Extraordinary can be quietly understated when it comes to fashion and style. It’s all about who you are!

Yves Saint Laurent. One of the fashion greats said, ”Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Words to live by!

Zeal. I was struggling to come up with a “Z” word for my list, and then I thought about zeal. Zeal is an energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or objective. I love it! I have a zeal for style. And my hope is that you will also.

So, what do you think? Has this A to Z list got you thinking? If the answer is yes...let’s talk.
