What style of dressing are you most drawn to? Boho? Rockabilly? Classic? What style of dressing is the one you’d adopt if you had unlimited cash, unlimited time, a completely nurturing environment, and the ideal body shape to pull it off? Arty? Girly? Rocker? What style of dressing have you wished to emulate for years? What do you want to look like?
Now. Why can’t you look like that?
I’m not being cheeky, I swear! I want you to think about the barriers that stand between you and your this longed-for personal style. Consider what is keeping you from dressing, looking, and feeling the way you’ve always dreamed. Jot down a list. Seriously.

How often do you spend time just PLAYING with your clothes?
I’d be willing to bet that 98% of you responded, “Ummm, I do that approximately … never.” And that’s normal!

Your body is constantly changing. It simply never stops. You may feel like you’ve grown into your final physical form – believe that the years of radical transformation have ended – but don’t kid yourself. In the coming months and years, your muscles will swell and shrink, and your skin will change its tone, and your hair will thicken and thin, and your weight will shift all over the damn place. Some of these changes will delight you and some of these changes will alarm you and many of them will surprise you. But whether you can see it or not, your body is changing right now.
