Most of us who have spent any time at all being an employee know what it’s like to be told what to wear. Maybe it is a uniform, scrubs, or a corporate dress code and any nonconformity is met with disapproval. We are programmed from a young age to dress like the masses.
In high school I set myself apart, not always in a good way, because I had my own style. I was considered eccentric! It didn’t take long for me to conform, especially when I joined the Marines! I wore a uniform for years and then I became a nurse and wore scrubs. When I moved into a non-clinical job I had to dress to corporate specifications--- I failed miserably because it just wasn’t my style.
Unfortunately years of conforming had driven my style underground.
You know the feeling- just wear whatever because nothing really makes you feel good. When I decided it was time to take my business to the next level I knew it was time to rediscover my style but I had absolutely no idea how to begin. Through our wonderful Holistic Fashionista community I connected with Eyenie at Technicolor Priestess and she totally helped me reconnect with MY STYLE!
I am now able to dress and accessorize with ease and I feel ready to meet my client’s needs. As a business owner it is vital we present ourselves with confidence and assurance. Our clients come to us to meet their needs and help solve their problems. We cannot be effective when we are in robo-style mode, take it from me! Just like we need business mentors we also need style mentors to help us maximize our confidence through our fashion!
