What's Interesting: Every Bra Has a Story

Here in the United States, this past Saturday (January 21st), a behemoth statement was made which demonstrated empowerment, and the spirit of female unity. Women and men joined forces to stand up against misconceptions and behaviors which violate our livelihood. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.

Though Saturday's demonstrations have concluded, we can still support and help women who find themselves in arduous situations.



  Bras are the most needed, yet least donated item of clothing for women.

Something as little as a bra is extremely impactful on a woman that comes from nothing.

Please Watch this Video

Donate a Bra, Change a Life
#GivingIsBeautiful - Clean out your top drawer, and head over to Soma (click Soma for more details) until January 31st, to donate new or gently worn bras to support women at local shelters affiliated with the National Network to End Domestic Violence. With your donation you'll receive $20 off 2 full price bras when you donate a bra in Soma Boutiques💗

Style Is...Authentic!

Welcome to part three of the month-long series
Style Is...

Style Is...Authentic
  
"When authentic and style are carefully examined, the two topics are naturally conjoined, which would explain why it's difficult to declare one attribute without the other. How can one stake their claim in having style without having a bona fide connection with self?"
 Glenda K. Harrison (excerpt from True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface)





Sartorial Savvy:
Let accessories put the exclamation mark on your ensemble by selecting pieces that express your individuality and personality. Accessories should never be an after-thought, rather, your selections must be an important part of your sartorial story.  Don't be afraid to express your true, authentic self.






"The meaning of style has now been revealed as having an ability to establish individuality or uniqueness through sartorial expression - an expression that would be impossible to achieve without the significant character trait of authenticity."
Glenda K. Harrison (excerpt from True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface)



To dive deeper into the TRUE meaning of STYLE, look for True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface, available winter 2017. If you missed part one and two in the Style Is series, goto:

How to Break Out of a Fashion Rut


Many would like to have a personal relationship with their wardrobe; one that's relevant to lifestyle, personality, and just downright representative to your current modus operandi. However, to obtain this type of wardrobe and self-harmony, a person may need to break out of a fashion rut. We've just entered into a new year, and now is the perfect time to dismantle past-tense sartorial views, and come up to speed with current and modern thoughts about getting dressed.

In decades past, it was quite easy to look modern and put together. Reason being...(this article continues at Midlife Boulevard).

Style Is...Unique

Welcome to part two of the month-long series:
Style Is... 

Style Is...Unique
"Unfortunately, in today's hyper-voyeuristic society, many choose to exist in a realm consistent to one of Fashion Robotism - one that has been pre-ordained or pre-selected by someone other than you, and has little to do with individuality."
Glenda K. Harrison (excerpt from True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface)

Outfit Details: Ukrainian dress via eBay; Nine West boots via eBay; Polish is Merino Cool by essie; Rings on thumb courtesy of Chico's (sold out); bracelets purchased in Mexico; Silhouette watch by Citizen





"When a person's life purpose is rooted in their unique qualities, they most certainly stand out from the crowd. They project an allure which not only melds their fashion choices, but their entire essence as well."
Glenda K. Harrison (excerpt from True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface)


 

Sartorial Savvy:
  1. Top designers are often inspired by fashions from different cultures and countries. The Ukrainian dress is a hot commodity for the fashion forward. However, to avoid paying the high cost from top designers, search sites like eBay and Etsy for such UNIQUE items.

What's Interesting: In the Company of Women


Today's, What's Interesting, is a book I haven't finished reading yet, but I'm positive you'll enjoy. It's the type of book you take your time reading. You don't want to rush through it, but you relax and digest it's content slowly and intently - In the Company of Women by Grace Bonney

Here's my review. Enjoy!




If you consider yourself a Maker, Artist or Entrepreneur, you'll find someone in this book you can relate too, and I guarantee you'll find inspiration. In the Company of Women will invite you deeper into it's contents with each page you turn. Find yourself a cozy corner and take it all in. You won't be disappointed. FYI, this isn't a paid endorsement. I'm simply sharing my heart. Since I mentioned my work space in the video, I thought I'd show my desk...

Style Is...Knowing Thyself


Today, January eighth, I celebrate my 51st birthday! 
I'm celebrating my birthday by welcoming you to a new, month-long series entitled,
Style Is...


Style Is...Knowing Thyself

"Knowing yourself on an intimate level unleashes a bouquet of positive outcomes into your life, and onto the people who surround you. One thing for sure, it's not difficult to recognize a person with this quality. There seems to be an undeniable confidence in the way they project themselves to the world."
- Glenda K. Harrison (excerpt from True Style)

Outfit Details - Boyfriend Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft (Last Fall); Vintage Soft V-Neck Pocket Tee: Loft; Exaggerated Shoulder Tuxedo Jacket: Filippa K via eBay (check out the options on Shopstyle); Tweed Touring Cap: Belongs to my oldest son (Many tweed cap options on Amazon); Men's Belt: Belongs to my youngest son; Strappy Sandal: Loft (Identical pair by Madden Girl on Amazon); Polish is Chinchilly by essie


  
"Style is much more than what we choose to wear. Style relates to a person's internal depth, and how that depth harmonizes with external factors."
Glenda K. Harrison (excerpt from True Style)

 
 
  


Sartorial Savvy:
  1. Never be afraid to borrow from the boys. This androgynous look was created by incorporating pieces from my son's wardrobe (cap and belt). 
  2. Take your dressier, evening pieces out for a daytime spin. The tuxedo jacket creates a clever juxtaposition with the deconstructed boyfriend jeans.



To dive deeper into the TRUE meaning of STYLE, look for True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface, available winter 2017. Also, before you go, Chico's placed me in their Best of 2016 category. Check it out here at Inside Chic.
