“Create your own visual style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” – Orson Welles
This month we’re talking about Personal Style which is all about your signature style and way of being in the world. It’s the physical expression of yourself, your authentic image. This is where your personality, sexuality and creativity come into play. The intention here is to look, feel, and express your most authentic self inside and out.
Are you Sassy, Bold, Refined? Are you RED, PINK, GREEN or YELLOW or simply black and white? Are you high hills, flip flops or Uggs? Are you oh naturale or glammed up? Are you roses, orchids or tulips? Are you sports car or luxury sedan or SUV? Are you jeans or little black dress? Are you leather or lace? Are you champagne, beer or wine? Are you burgers or caviar? Are you pearls or studs? Are you sexy and feminine or tom boyish? Are you rock n’ roll or classical? Are you high-end boutique or thrift? Are you handwritten notes or email? Are you penthouse, beach house or cabin in the woods? Are you corporate or creative? Are you dog or cat or fish? Are you jetsetter or homebody? Or are you all of the above?
You get to be whatever you want to be. My only suggestion is keep it real, keep it honest and Do YOU!
As part of the process of identifying your personal style you should start thinking about what your favorite things are, what are you drawn to, what stimulates your senses, and how do you want to show up in the world. By the end of the month I want you to be able to fill in the blanks to “this is who I am _______”, “this is what I love _______”, and “this is what I want to express to the world______.” If you already know these answers then great, if not, stay tuned.
