Ep 278: What makes you memorable?

It’s not what is the same, it’s what is different, and we often perceive those differences as flaws to be hidden not uniqueness to be celebrated. It’s time to embrace the Japanese concept of Kintsugi and taken what you perceive to be broken and instead realise how resilient you really are and see the beauty in those metaphorical scars.

273: How to rebuild your wardrobe

How do you dress more Rebellious when black all over is a little overpowering for your coloring? Do I stick with black on the bottom and grays up top? I still love rock band T-shirts, leather stuff, metals, etc. but I don’t want to look like I’m trying too hard. I also have elements of Creative, Natural personality styles and am a hopeless romantic.

Ep 251: Body Image and Your Style

I was inspired to talk about body image after receiving these 3 style struggles:
My biggest challenge is… I was slim and sexy, now I am menopausal, well over fifty and have a huge protruding belly and double chin. No, this is not a joke, I wish it were. I’ve stopped going out for months because of this. (I picked up weight also, was always 60 kgs now 100 kgs
My body shape is my biggest challenge. I am a pear shape…. thin arms, small face, tiny bust yet I have a bit of a tummy, bottom and hips. Also my age:( I’m 55 and don’t want to dress too young, yet not like an old maid. And I can’t stand tight fitting clothes 😒Help !!!!
My biggest challenge, is I like structure and tailored clothes but I am short and I have a big stomach that ruins it for me!

EP200: Let’s Talk Body Image, Weight and Shopping

I received this email (and I get many like it, so you too may relate), so I wanted to talk about waiting to lose weight.
I am not your typical female with a closet full of clothes.
I’m 54 and have had issues w/ my body since I was a kid and have mostly felt uncomfortable shopping AND always waiting to shop for clothes until I lose ’10 pounds’ so I have a very short list of clothing items that I wear.
My goal is to stop waiting and start shopping which I’ve wanted to do for months now but can’t seem to do it – when I actually go online to shop for clothes I’m there for hours trying to find things that I would feel comfortable in as well as look good and I just don’t have that time right now.
Any suggestions?
