Like so many women – there are parts of our bodies that we are less-than-thrilled about.
For example do you love shorts but hate your legs? Think you’ve got knees that don’t pair particularly well with shorts or little skirts?
Adore strapless tops and dresses – but the way the, uh, ‘girls’ are set up doesn’t work?
As we age, our bodies change and sometimes those vulnerabilities are increased.
So you dress “down.”
You make yourself invisible.
You blend in.
But, if you are honest with yourself, you don’t really want to blend in.
You just don’t want to stand out for the wrong reasons.
Dressing down is a safe, guarded way of coping with the (totally natural) weight that you’ve gained as you’ve aged.
The struggle is now dressing a body with existing vulnerable parts to feel beautiful.
There are many places on the internet where you can find encouragement to love your bodies as-is and show off every curve and angle. Which I applaud! Let’s raise a glass of Pinot to those women for being bold and not asking permission or giving a hoot.
But for many of us, the road to self-love and body acceptance is a looooong one. And if you’re waiting to love your body before you assemble a wardrobe that inspires you – it might be a long wait.
So if this story resonates with you – if you, too, are in a new body that you’re not super thrilled with or you’re trying to build outfits around a body part you don’t love – you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re not ready for mini skirts or one-shouldered dresses or advice about baring your arms (if you hate them) – ladies, we get IT.
It’s totally, 100% possible to create a wardrobe that
makes you look double-take gorgeous
plays up your best assets + downplays others.
We know because we’ve done this for ourselves, and we’ve also helped many others stand out (quietly, beautifully) in the body they have today.
And we would love to help you feel beautiful.
