What’s LOVE Got To Do With It? 3 Ways to Bring Love into Your Wardrobe

Wouldn’t it be fun to wake up every day and put on something you love? Wouldn’t it brighten your day and make you feel happy?

That experience is absolutely possible.

I’ve got a few ways you can use that powerful love force and infuse your wardrobe with it so you’re happy to meet the day.

  1. Shop for what you love

In order to have a wardrobe that’s filled with what you love you may need to change up your shopping habits. If you’re shopping on the run, you may be grabbing “just any old thing” rather than allowing yourself the time to try things on, look in the mirror and ask yourself the question, “Do I love this?” Or if you are taking the time to try things on, are you settling for the same old thing instead of exploring new possibilities? The best thing to do is give yourself some time to explore and have fun with clothes. Don’t settle for “okay” when you could enjoy clothing pieces and accessories that put a smile on your face every time you wear it.

  1. Display what you love

People have collections of things they love. It could be figurines of specific animals. Maybe it’s a wall of framed horticultural prints. Some people fall in love with a city and want to be reminded of it all the time. You can take those subjects you love and look for them in prints. How about a blouse with your favorite flower or a knit sweater with the image of your favorite animal woven in? Or a scarf depicting your favorite city? Many people gain much pleasure when they adorn themselves in things they already love.

  1. Satisfy your love of details

Look at your wardrobe or look through a fashion magazine. Are there details that you just love? Maybe you love vintage details. You may fancy lace, ruffles, bows, tucks, appliqués. Maybe you love urban details like studs, fringe, or grommets. Indulge your love of details and look for new ways to have them in your wardrobe. If it’s studs you like, look for them in handbags, shoes or boots, or on the hemlines of skirts.

LOL… can you guess what I LOVE to collect as a pattern in my clothes?

My goal is to have every woman LOVE who she sees in the mirror!

Who Do You Love Mama…Who Do You Love?

Welcome to February, the month of love. I am super excited because I totally love astrology and Mars, the fiery male planet, and Venus, the female planet of love, are merging together in Aries!!  Too much non-sense information?

Well not if I want to bring more love into your life… and I always do. I want you to fall in love with the person in the mirror.

Do you remember what  it feels like to be in love, in the beginning? The buoyant feeling you have. The excitement and the smiles. Wondering … what will I wear when we go out?  We actually spent time fussing over ourselves and putting outfits together. What happened?

Well you might say, menopause hit, I got divorced, my partner passed away, I became ill, I retired or I became a grandparent.  Whatever “The Life” happened to you, I am here to get you back on the self-love track.

Let’s start with what you have, your body.

In my last 2 videos, I talked about how negative women can be to themselves. Our self talk is a litany of “Don’t likes.”  We compare ourselves to other women and… often to younger women!

This month, in fact, today, I want you to highlight a feature about yourself that you LOVE.  Maybe it’s your décolleté. Are you wearing pieces that flatter your chest? Start wearing blouses with necklines that are flattering. Or add a statement necklace to your simple rounded neck top.

 

Perhaps you have long legs that you love. Wear pants in all kinds of fabrics like, velvet, jacquard and the new denim that is surfacing this spring.  Bring some loving attention to your body and highlight areas that make you feel like a ten!

 

 

It IS possible and I am here to help. Call me and we will work on this together.

BIG news for February:

How to Express Your Passions Through Fashion This 2017!

At the beginning of each New Year we focus on our goals for business, health, home and spiritual.

Sometimes we lose sight of ourselves in all the great plans.

In Fashion Feng Shui, we set an intention that we would like to bring out in our appearance. Fashion is an easy way to do that.

There is a plethora of styles and prints to choose from. So, let’s get personal with some prints that match your hobbies, interests or passions. Wear images that inspire you!

Love to write? Read?

You may carry a journal with you. Or, you have downloaded books that you can’t wait to get into this winter.

Wear clothing that bear messages. Appreciate your favourite font in a unique piece of clothing.

World Cultures & Travel?

You aren’t satisfied on a seven block radius in your neighborhood. Your goals include figuring out how to make a living writing a travel blog. Bring out your travel enthusiasm by wearing African prints, Asian inspired kimonos and dresses influenced by the rich colours of India.

Pictures of flower gardens dance in your head?

Your library is filled with botanical picture books. You have visited Monet’s gardens and you are pouring over seed catalogues for the spring.

Choose to wear florals in small or large bloom scale. Cardigans, dresses and tops can show off your passion for all things floral.

Love animals?

Your goal includes a trip to Africa next year. Or maybe you are headed to the rain forest? Stay inspired by wearing leggings in a zebra print. Or try an animal print scarf with your coat. There is an abundance of prints out there to wear during the day or silky pyjamas by night.

 

 

I am the only Fashion Feng Shui facilitator in Canada! And… I would love to help you set your intentions for 2017 through your clothing. Discover your essential element and how to bring your desires out in your clothing.
