I wrote my book because I wanted to provide women with a non-judgmental, individualized system for understanding and honing personal style. The feedback I’ve gotten has been overwhelmingly positive, and I’m THRILLED! But I freely admit that the process outlined in that book is a long one and takes some serious commitment. If you have no clear picture of your style goals, the book will help. If you want a comprehensive overhaul of everything about your dressing habits from evaluation to daydreaming to planning to shopping, the book will help. If you feel like you want to burn everything in your closet and start over – never a good plan, but definitely a common feeling – the book will help.
BUT! If you’re just feeling a little lost or stagnant and need some help getting your sartorial inspiration flowing, this new tool might be a better fit:
Thirty Pretty Projects is a short and sweet program of exercises that will help you learn about your current style, explore new ideas, and feel great while doing it. This PDF contains week-long modules of simple exercises – many of them based on practices I utilize myself or processes I use with my style consult clients – that focus on various aspects of personal style. You’ll tackle one exercise each day – some of them as simple as, “select an item from your closet that is your favorite color and build an outfit around it,” and others more in-depth like, “identify someone who looks very, very different from you but who has really nailed her style, and describe what she’s doing so well.” Just one task each day, with a review at the week’s end to summarize what you’ve learned. Easy, do-able, and fun! I will release new series of projects over time, but in this first series you’ll be tackling subjects that include self-image, style icons, color, and accessorization.
Thirty Pretty Projects is set up as a workbook with space for notes so you can keep everything in one spot, refer back, and print out again if you want to repeat or revise certain sections. Naturally, the idea is to plow through the full set of 30 exercises – one day at a time – to keep your mojo going, but even if you skip around or pick and choose this regimen is bound to spark a few new ideas.
Hope this resource proves helpful and valuable!
