“I have heard with admiring submission the experience of the lady who declared that the sense of being perfectly well-dressed gives a feeling of inward tranquility which religion is powerless to bestow.“ ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, Letters and Social Aims.
What is our fascination with clothes? Why do we find comfort in that perfect black dress, confidence in that beautifully tailored business suit, and feel sexy in those sling-back red stilettos? Perhaps it is because our daily fashion choices reflect our state of mind, personality or mood to the world, without saying a word. What are your clothes saying? They may speak volumes. Are you bold and daring, quiet and reserved, something in between, or a little bit of both? That whimsical scarf may say, “Don’t take the world too seriously” while that flowing floral skirt may say, “I love nature”.
It has been said that clothes make the man, or in our case the “woman”. Business coaches often preach to dress for success, look the part and you’re halfway there. That grey pinstripe suit says, “I’m the right person for the job” not only to the interviewer but to us. Our clothes can give us that little extra confidence just when we need it the most. So, whether you are ready to conquer the world, or have some much needed “R & R”, wear what you feel great in, and portray the person you want to be at that moment.
Our Spring issue is filled with the latest must-haves in soft fabrics and bright hues. Find those pieces to accessorize your classics to keep you trendy and chic, whether it’s that must-have crisscross front chiffon top or that cerise ruffled dress. Sometimes we all need to indulge ourselves.
What do you want your clothes to say today? Are you elegant and sophisticated or a down-to-earth free spirit? Did I hear someone say SALE!!
