I’ve been called a piece of work, but a piece of art? Guess that depends on the art. Visions of black-velvet paintings of dogs playing poker are popping into my head (LOL). But last week as I read a blog titled “How Early Childhood Shapes Our Self-Image and Style” by Carla Mathis, it got me thinking about this subject. Carla is a world renown Image Consultant and owner of The Style Core in CA. I received my Styling Certification through her company. One of the first assignments I had to complete was to send Carla my favorite pictures of art, nature and architecture. I had forgotten how powerful this exercise was. The thought is that when you are describing why you like your favorites, you are describing yourself. As you can read in her blog highlighted above, the client she was working with had a disconnect between his everyday image/look and who he truly is and who he’s meant to be.
I challenge you to think about your favorites or even better, go round them up and take a looksie. What does your art say about you? Are you elegant, sophisticated and classic? Maybe you’re quirky, colorful, funny and independent? Does your current look/style represent what is depicted in your favorites? If not, why not? How can you get there?
The first thing you have to do is get really clear. Life Coach Stacey Andon and I would love to help you do just that with our “Find Your Authentic Style” workshop on Saturday, March 18th. We want you to not only fall in love with your closet, but to think of yourself as a beautiful and unique piece of art. If you plan on joining us, please bring a favorite picture of art, architecture and/or nature so that we can help you find and share your own beautiful shine!
