Recently, I had a woman approach me extremely frustrated with her personal style. In her own opinion she felt as if her fashion reflected passivity. The first step to change is acknowledging there is always room for improvement. Most of us are familiar with the cliché, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” How often do we neglect our outer appearance with little regard to those we will be interacting with? We embrace a gamut of excuses in defense of our negligence, such as I was running late, I had too much to do this morning, I am exhausted, I don’t feel like going through the trouble and my favorite I am not trying to impress anybody!

As women we are constantly evolving and our wardrobe often reflects where we are mentally, spiritually and emotionally. I avidly recall one of my mentors advising me to always dress against the grain. What does that mean? On those days you feel completely down in the dumps, is the perfect time to shine brighter than you ever have before. In the words of the famous Dry Idea antiperspirant commercial, “Never let ‘em see you sweat!” If you are open and willing to transform from good to great, everywhere you go people will stand at attention and take notes.

Let’s gaze at three jewels of transformation that are guaranteed to enhance your self image:

1) Color Me Beautiful! If you are seeking to blend in by all means wear gloomy gray and boring brown. For those who are ready to live out loud, it’s time to infuse your wardrobe with radiant reds, optimistic oranges, gorgeous greens, passion purples, youthful yellows and breathtaking blues. In the crevice of every color is a powerful source of energy that will either draw or repel others. Unleash your inner color girl.

2) Tailor Made is the Only Way! Every outfit in your closet should fit you like a glove with the exception of lounging attire. When I’m in the dressing room, only items I feel speak and connect to my unique beauty are for keeps. Stay away from oversized shirts they tend to make you appear unnaturally larger. Also, on the opposite side of the spectrum avoid clothing that is too tight. If you have major trouble zones that need to be toned skin gripping garments not only affect your circulation but they reveal what should be concealed.

3) Dress Your Best! When we look our best we send an internal message to our brain that says we deserve the best. You were born to shine, so stop living beneath the standards of greatness. I was always told, excellence is in the details. You are worth the extra time it takes to create a phenomenal expression of who you are and where you are headed. On the path to success it is a must that you showcase your best self. Be bold and remember you are a magnificent design, refuse to hide.

  5. certainly like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the reality however I will surely come again again.

  6. One important thing is that if you find yourself searching for a student loan you may find that you’ll want a cosigner. There are many scenarios where this is true because you should find that you do not have a past history of credit so the bank will require that you’ve got someone cosign the borrowed funds for you. Good post.

  7. I would also love to add when you do not now have an insurance policy or you do not form part of any group insurance, you could well reap the benefits of seeking aid from a health insurance broker.

  8. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  9. Hi, I do believe this is a great site. I stumbledupon it ;) I may return once again since I saved as a favorite it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide others.

  10. One thing I’ve noticed is that often there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the banking companies intentions any time talking about foreclosed. One myth in particular would be the fact the bank wishes to have your house. Your banker wants your dollars, not your own home. They want the money they loaned you together with interest. Avoiding the bank will draw any foreclosed realization. Thanks for your write-up.

  11. Thanks for your article. I would also love to say that a health insurance broker also works well with the benefit of the particular coordinators of your group insurance policy. The health insurance agent is given a directory of benefits needed by someone or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker really does is find individuals and also coordinators which best match those requirements. Then he gifts his suggestions and if all parties agree, the particular broker formulates a contract between the two parties.

Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Wonderful blog!

  15. I have seen many useful points on your site about desktops. However, I’ve the thoughts and opinions that notebook computers are still not quite powerful sufficiently to be a good option if you usually do projects that require many power, like video enhancing. But for internet surfing, microsoft word processing, and majority of other common computer functions they are just great, provided you may not mind the little screen size. Thank you for sharing your opinions.
