About 4 years ago I was getting ready to turn 30 and I wanted to make some changes in my life. I was ready to start my own path and not follow the crowd, I wanted to break out of my shell. I had always felt like the ugly duckling. At this point I had started and was maintaining some weight loss and I knew I wanted more. Not only did I want to feel good but I wanted to look good as well. I just didn’t know how to make this happen.
Growing up, others understood and were into fashion. Me, I was into computers and working a good 30 hours a week in high school. I kind of felt like God forgot to give me a gene to understand how to dress or love fashion. I always thought it was because I was fat. Clothes didn’t look right on me which made me feel bad.
The only blogger I followed at the time was starting something amazing. She had done a few pieces on beauty and fashion which I loved. This, along with her saving techniques which was why I had started to follow her. Her name is Kelly, of The Redefined Mom. She asked her readers if we liked her beauty and fashion pieces and then sent out an official survey. I was so scared to say yes. Could I really learn and figure out fashion to look good on me?
Well, I am so thankful for the path that my husband had to tell me was worth taking. I am realizing now this was just a start of a wonderful journey God wanted me on.
Finding a picture prior to starting my journey was really tough because for most of my life I would try to avoid being in front of the camera. This picture above is one of the few, taken a couple weeks before starting.
I signed up for Adore Your Wardrobe. After the holidays in January 2016 we started this class. Being online it’s a little easier to show bravery and not show nerves, although I was scared and a little freaked out. I worked through the lessons and I did everything in the class. I even posted selfies which I had never taken one before. You know what started to happen? I realized I love fashion. In some ways I just didn’t know why it didn’t work for me, now I did. It wasn’t me, it was the clothes and it was the fashion industry. It was family and friends who also let me believe it was me.
I not only finished the class and loved it but I have also shared with a select few. Until now I was worried what the people around me who told me I couldn’t look great would think.
I realize anyone could do this it’s based on math and science. Even if you’re not good at math and science, Kelly breaks it down for anyone to understand meaning you can too.
Now, I have finished Signature I went on to do Advanced, Academy, and now I am in Adored. I have loved being part of a community that has come together because of fashion and have become friends with many. I love how we all cheer each other on.
This class isn’t being told wear this or that or here are 15 items and we are going to style them. I have my own unique personal style and no one else in the class has it but instead of being told to change like other bloggers, I am taught the rules for my body type to apply for everything. If I decide I am into a trend in three years I will still have the rules and know how to apply them. I won’t be left guessing why it works or doesn’t work for me. It’s always the clothes, it’s never you. It’s not weight gain or weight loss, it’s your lovely unique body. You will learn to style and apply the science and math too. Plus, you get the lessons for life.
Let me tell you, not only do you feel good on the outside and someday I feel I can conquer the world sometimes only because of my outfit. It makes you start feeling good on the inside. You know something else? You’re allowed to feel good! We take care of our families and little people all day. You’re allowed to feel good and feel your best. No one ever told me or said to me that was okay. I always grew up feeling like you have to do it all yourself. It’s okay to do something for you. If you need permission I am giving it to you. Do something for you!
Yes, there are days I sometimes still wake up feeling beat. I put on the best outfit for my day and normally by the end I have had a great day. Clothes help you fake it till you make it. They help you not feel as scared, worried, unsure of yourself, they are your armor for the outside world.
Lastly, going into Fall During the holidays where you’re seeing family, and maybe it’s family you don’t see often or see all the time and you’re not sure what to wear. Come learn how to dress for your body type and feel absolutely amazing for the upcoming holidays applying math and science to your wardrobe.
So if you are feeling like the ugly duckling, or that fashion skipped your gene, or if you want to just change something in your life and aren’t sure where to start, let me suggest starting with Kelly and her amazing team of BTEs (Body Type Experts). This will be the last time Signature is offered in 2019 so it’s a great time to start and to end off your year.
Classes for Signature start September 18th and will run for 60 days inside a FB classroom. Each lesson drops and you learn to be brave and put yourself out there with everyone else learning to be brave too. Embrace it. This was the start of my journey to find the real me and you can too, and self love. The BTEs and Kelly will be there to be your cheerleaders along with the rest of the class helping you learn along the way. Of all the online teachers I’ve had (and I’ve had several), there are none who care more and have YOUR best interests at heart. I don’t think you could ever regret this purchase but if you do, Kelly has a 30 day 100% money back guarantee. You also get lifetime membership.
