I find other business women so inspiring! Recently I had a conversation with another business woman who lives in my area about all things, passion, trips she earned but something I found SO INSPIRING was her style.
The inspiring business woman, Hilary Diaz- Cruz, is a shining star with a popular direct sales company, Paparazzi. She was able to successfully leave her place of work and do Paparazzi for a living, she is KNOWN for her jewelry. What REALLY excites me about Hilary, is how she REALLY stepped into her style. She decided exactly what style she wanted to go for, and she went for it! (linked below is Hilary's page)
Recently this got me thinking, so I posed a question to my She is Chic Style VIP group (linked below)… “What is stopping you from dressing how you want to dress?”
I had an OVERWHELMING amount of honest responses. It was amazing to open this kind of conversation with women! It opens up the conversation, when there is conversation- we can open eyes to all different things around us.
There was some really positive feedback: “Nothing” (by my customer Danielle). Danielle was a little spitfire from the moment she came in and I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT. She has really learned how to love herself and it shows in everything she does. I LOVE hearing positive responses from women who overcame to get to that point!
While we had some great feedback, we’ve also run into some REAL conversations from women. These conversations need to be had. What I have discovered is these are some other reasons people aren’t able to dress however they want:
- Work/Dress Code
- Body Type/Cellulite/Body Image/Self Esteem
- What People Think
The latter, finances, I understand this! As a shop owner, I personally, offer Sezzle for shopping. Sezzle helps you split your order into small payments- this may help you. If not, this is totally okay.
I am a natural salesperson- but I am telling you do not buy it unless you love it. I tell people this all the time, I want you to buy things you love- I mean this wholeheartedly. I mean this for every store. Including mine.
I am going to make a later article giving you some quick tips on how to make really amazing office/work approved outfits! Perfect for any dress code. So stay tuned for that!
I cannot help the weather, BUT, I can put out a post for you in the future giving you dress ideas for ALL seasons 😉 (we even have some pretty jackets right now for the cold front coming our way).
Anxiety, body type, self-esteem/cellulite and more… we’ve gotta talk! I want you to feel beautiful no matter what size you are, no matter if you have cellulite or if you are afraid people won’t understand you! It doesn’t matter who understands you, as long as you accept you that is all that matters.
You are SMART, you are BEAUTIFUL, you are FUNNY and you are SO WORTHY.
NEVER. EVER. DOUBT. THAT.
I want you all to feel as beautiful as I know you are, because you deserve to feel that way, you deserve to KNOW you are great.
My personal challenge to you: Every week, I want you to wear ONE thing out of your comfort zone. Even if it is a pattern you love, but you’re nervous to try it. PUT IT ON. Throw on some “Good as Hell” by Lizzo and strut your stuff in front of the mirror. BECAUSE YOU ARE GOOD AS HELL.
You can dress however you want to; you can be whatever you want to. This is YOUR time to decide who you are and what you want to be.
Hilary decided what she wanted to be, she decided who she wanted to be and she went for the stars. I want you all to decide who you are.
Are you rocker chic?
Are you proper like Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl?
Are you a country girl?
Decide what you wanna do and GO FOR IT. You deserve to feel as beautiful as you are. You are absolutely 110% worthy.
Your new mantra every day: I am beautiful, I am fabulous, I am worthy… nothing is gonna stop me.
Love yourself. You are worth it.
