WHY ARE YOU IMPORTANT?
Fashion is a state of mind! It has very little to do with the outward appearance, but more to do with how you feel in what you are wearing. More specifically, how you feel internally from a holistic standpoint, governs our entire being! However, if specific garments makes you feel attractive, confident, powerful etc, then that is worth exploring!
Seriously…real talk…when I am wearing certain pieces from my wardrobe that I love, I feel like I can conquer the world! I feel more creative, pleasant, confident and ready to take on the day! I actually look forward to the day because I know one thing I don’t have to be concerned with…is that I look presentable. Instead, I am ready to meet, greet and interact with people. It is amazing what the right garment can do for you! Not to mention, it does not have to break your bank account either. Learning to shop smart is important as well! How to Look Fashionable On A Budget
As women, we are inundated with the day-to-day duties of being wives, mothers, sisters, employees, entrepreneurs, friends and the list goes on. We barely carve out time for ourselves in the midst of the chaos. With this in mind, we often neglect our appearance due to fatigue, lack of time, lack of finances, low self-esteem, stress or the fact that it may not rank high on our list of priorities. Over the course of my life I have come to learn that we are unfortunately judged based upon our outward appearance.
This happens in our marriages, relationships, as well as our personal and professional lives. Our appearance often affects how others respond to us. It is true that most people sum up who they believe you are and what they believe you have based solely on your appearance. It’s psychological. Therefore, my thought is, people are going to sum you up regardless of whether it is true or not. So, let’s give them something to talk about! Therefore, raise those children, run those errands, work your jobs, run your businesses AND look fabulous while doing it! 🙂
I LOVE being a woman and I embrace all that being a woman encompasses! We have limitless possibilities when it comes to fashion…and learning your unique body is the first step of the journey! My sincere hope is that you embrace every pound of you…that’s right, every pound…even if it’s not your “desired” pounds on the scale. That is completely OKAY! It’s not going to stop you from looking fabulous each day, if you so desire. It starts with learning the basics, which entails learning what works best for YOUR body!
Once you have mastered the “dos” and “don’ts” regarding clothing shapes for you, then you can look your absolute best each day…whether dressed up or down! I promise :). I’m sure you have heard numerous times “Just because it is your size, does not mean you should wear it”. That is absolutely true. Every fashion forward, trendy style, or “what’s in” garment is simply not for every woman. I am committed to assisting you with becoming the best version of “YOU”…from a fashion point of view! 😉
In my current career and over the course of my life, I have repeatedly heard numerous women say, “I don’t know what looks good on me? … Where do I start?” It starts with getting to know YOU, becoming at peace with YOU and loving the skin you’re in! There is a quote that I love which states, “Be yourself….everyone else is already taken”! That simply means there is only one you. You are a unique being created for a unique purpose. Once you embrace that notion, you will become unstoppable!
The next step is learning your body type and what shapes work best for your body. This is the foundation for a lifetime of looking your best…whatever the occasion. My goal is to reignite the fire that prompts you to do a little “extra” each day…just for you. Life can be tough and the journey can at times wear on us…but it does’t have to literally “wear” on us! LOL! Instead, when you look in the mirror, confidently say “You don’t look like what you’ve been through”!
I am here for you! As I stated before, I am committed to assisting you with becoming the best version of “YOU”! If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section below or via email at Quanita@LeFemmeFab.com and let’s collaborate on something FABULOUS!
All the best,
