How To Feel Good About Your Style

Know your body type. I know this should seem obvious, but I still find myself staring wistfully at store windows, wondering if I can squeeze myself into a dress or top that clearly wasn't designed with me in mind. I hear women complain about their bodies all the time, but there's no such thing as a bad body type. There are, however, poor fashion choices that don't highlight your best assets.

Can Good Style Change the World?

With each generation, the adoption of a new style standard represented more than a change in aesthetic tastes as trends represent today in the seesaw of what's-new-what's-next-what's-cool; style has always been tied to some sort of revolution. Today, with nothing that can't be created, nothing that can't be found, nothing that can't be knocked off, we really can have it all.

Make Your Signature Scent Entirely You

I've always loved the idea of a signature scent, something that embodied me and became a personal statement. Fragrance reacts differently on different people, so how your signature scent smells on you and to you is different than how it smells in the bottle. That means that even a very popular fragrance can become highly personalized -- it won't smell the same on you as it does on other people.

Expanding My Style Horizons

Style is not only a matter of personal taste. Even cities have their own unique fashion sensibility. For instance, New York feels more fashion-forward and dark. L.A., on the other hand, is more colourful and airy. From shoes to jewelry (and a lot in between!), here are some of my favourite shopping spots.

It's All About Me

There is a calm cohesiveness in today's wardrobe, an unstructured connection of favourite pieces -- and yet this eclectic selection reflects the individual psyche. Age is no longer a factor. People have the confidence to be comfortable in their own skin, their own clothes and their own bodies, to have fun, to enjoy.
