Dare to be Fabulous!

"A girl should be two things - classy and fabulous" ~ Coco Chanel

Everyone's definition of "classy and fabulous" is different.  And because we are usually so darn hard on ourselves, most ladies (and gentlemen) I know won't even admit that they have a unique style that sets them apart and makes them fabulous.  It could be the way you wear your hair, it could be your uncommon wardrobe that channels the 1950's vintage era, or it could be the wild and crazy jewelry that is loud and larger than life.  It could even be your signature fragrance.  Whatever the fabulous factors are in your life, I'm here to encourage you to live each day with utter passion and embrace your individuality and style.  What I've also learned, from my own experience, is that sometimes we are afraid to step out on the ledge and discover our exclusive style.  It's as if there's another person living inside us that really wants to buy those patent leather knee high boots, wear that bright red lipstick or wear that bohemian, hippy style skirt, but she's afraid.  Then, it always happens - you see another fearless lady wearing the same boots or skirt.  You encounter the red lipstick lady that wears it with style and stare at her with envy and a little sadness.  Get out there and play!  Look through books, magazines and browse websites for ideas.  I often save magazine tears of my favorite fabulous items.  Be the classy and fabulous person you were meant to be!  You are worth it. Check out iVillage,, InStyle, MAC Cosmetics, and Sephora for fun fashion ideas. Polyvore is another great site that allows you to create a virtual style.  Fun!
