Turn Your Clothes into a Wardrobe!

Every woman has a secret boutique in her closet. The trick is to turn your closet into awardrobe that works for you. The question is what to use and what to lose.

– Let go of pieces that are outdated, the wrong size, or unflattering for your skin tone and body type. Think of your closet as the perfectly rearranged boutique where every item fits and flatters just you. Or, think of fresh new ways to work them into your life.

– Set your closet up like a mini boutique. Organize your closet by category and color
so you can see exactly what you have. Once you do, you’ll become inspired and find new ways of putting different pieces together and creating new outfits.

– Make a “maybe” pile of things you might be able to re-work with minor alterations or update with new items. For instance, a mid-calf length skirt can take on a second life with a little hemming. Or try shortening a dated jacket to bring it up to date. Belts on just about anything (either wide or skinny) – from jackets and sweaters, to blouses and coats too..

– Once you have edited down your closet, its time for the fun part – make a list of new items you need to complete your wardrobe. When you head to the stores with a list of what you really need and start shopping, you’ll reject ‘impulse items and buy only what you need!

-Do some homework before you head to the stores. Look up your favorite brands’ web sites for styling ideas and to get a feel for what’s available or on sale. When you get to the stores:

  • look for versatile items.
  • Don’t worry about buying head-to-toe outfits.
  • Think about purchasing individual items that can be worn different ways. Layering pieces are great, like lightweight cardigans, that can be stretched from one look to the next.

-When you follow these shopping tips, you will buy much less than you would in the past. Smarter choices = smarter style.

The Key: Buy only the trends that work FOR you – your body – your personality – your lifestyle.

A Word From Maya Angelou

In Chapter 4 of my book I talk about how: a woman who lives from the inside out, emanates an extraordinary feeling of power, an assurance, creativity and a deep desire to grow.”

The irony of it all is that if you relinquish who you are, and begin looking at yourself only in relation to men, you can’t have an authentic relationship.

Many women have a tendency to make men extremely fascinating and powerful, not realizing that the love we give to others is second-hand. Our first and foremost love should be the love we give ourselves.

 I ran up on this poem from Maya Angelou. Hope you find it as enlightening as I do!

‘A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ

That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.’

 When I say…. ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not shouting ‘I’m clean living,’I’m whispering ‘I was lost, Now I’m found and forgiven.’

 When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I don’t speak of this with pride, I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

 When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not trying to be strong. I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say. ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not bragging of success.I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

 When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not claiming to be perfect,My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

 When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I still feel the sting of pain…I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

 When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not holier than thou,I’m just a simple sinner Who received God’s good grace, somehow!

I’ll add my few little words of wisdom from Chapter 2 of my book:

The more you love and respect yourself, the more power you will have. The key purpose in life is self-discovery. Know who you are. Many people think that once they know what they want, they know who they are. But it’s not until one knows what they have to give that they know who they really are.

Fulfilling your life’s true purpose, which ultimately is self-discovery, requires developing a higher consciousness or of becoming more self aware, enhancing your self-image. Your self-image is the belief you have of yourself, an evaluation of your capabilities and personal worth, which can only be found from within.

Embrace your Uniqueness!
