Growing up I always admired fashion contributors and stylists in the media. I’d tune in to The Today Show or Good Morning America to listen to their commentary. My mom always told me I would be good at that. Even at a young age I was confident enough to recognize that I had the breadth of knowledge to provide thoughtful tips and advice – #passionforfashion. But what I didn’t realize is how much I would enjoy it! Back in March, I had the pleasure of filming a fashion TV segment, in my home office, with ABC. It aired on May 5th during the lifestyle television show Bay Area Life. It was SO fun to see how the film crew took six hours of footage and sliced and diced it into an award-winning (if I say so myself!) five minute segment. Bravo: Victoria, Janel, and team! Did I miss my calling – should I have gone into broadcasting? Or, did I JUST discover it?! Regardless, I’m so excited to share my “Dressing with Confidence” segment with you, and a few important sentiments to think about every morning when you get dressed.
“Confidence is Your Best Accessory”
How you dress, and what you adorn yourself with is no one’s business. Your fashion style is a form of self expression and no one other than you has a right to weigh in! But confidence is KEY! If you feel good in the ensemble that you are wearing your mood will elevate, your body language will change, and those around you will be able to tell. For that reason it is always important to be comfortable in what you are wearing. Your confidence is your best accessory! You do you and don’t worry about what other people think!
A special thanks to Janel, Victoria, and the whole team at Bay Area Life for my TV debut. And to my sweet friends Jacqueline, Laura, and Keisha…I could not have done it without you!
