We all have our shrinking violet days, where we just don't feel like ourselves. Let's blame it on waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Well I've got a little cure for you. Feng Shui. Yea that's right, I'm a huge fan of using it to create dynamic flow in my house so I thought what if I applied it to my wardrobe?!
"When in doubt wear red." - Bill Blass
On days that just feel a little off take the time to really nail your look, knowing that you're leaving the house with perfectly winged eyeliner is guaranteed to put some pep in your step. Put on some music that is going to lift your mood, enjoy the ritual of getting ready for the day, you never know who you might meet.
It's always handy to have an outfit to reach for that you know you look great in, for me it's black pants, a black tee, Louboutins and my leather jacket. Knowing I can just put this on and look elegant and sleek relieves so much stress and I can instantly tackle my day confidently.
Wear red. Red is the ultimate power color, it will draw attention to you, make people take notice of you and cause you to walk taller.
Stand up straight. When you stand tall with your shoulders back you are not shrinking away from your day. You instantly appear taller, sure and more confident of yourself.
Wear something fancy. Wear something that makes you feel elegant and remember one can never be too over dressed.
Wear something with a chevron. Chevrons are power shapes and add instant life and energy. Just like on our handbags.
Remember to smile. It's the best accessory anyone can wear.
