Confidence is the ability to feel beautiful without needing someone to tell you

The word ‘image’ can conjure up a variety of issues but, whether we like it or not, humans are programmed to make judgments about each other based mainly on what we are looking at.  Our intellectual side of us thinks it’s the words we say but that would set the buzzer ringing on QI!  We are told not to judge a book by it’s cover… but we all do it!

Whether you are a doctor, checkout assistant, mother of small children or a teacher, wherever we go in life people will initially access us by our image, even before we say any words.  More than that, your appearance effects how you are treated by others in society.  If you don’t believe me then look up ‘How apperance effects how you are treated’ on youtube, it’s quite shocking!

Take the stressing out of dressing

Not undertanding which colours and styles suit you can get very expensive.  We are seduced by models in magazines and displays in shop windows to buy clothes.  If we are not aware of which colours and shapes flatter us, and understand our style personality, we can often fall into the trap of buying clothes that just sit in the wardrobe, rarely or never worn.

  • Are you uncertain of making the right purchases?
  • Do you lack confidence in our style choices or colours?
  • Are you stuck in a rut of wearing the same thing over and over again?
  • Do you come out of the changing room feeling rubbish about yourself?
  • Do you dread the whole shopping experience?

One of my clients told me that she only used to shop when she absolutely had to.  If she made a buying mistake she wouldn’t return the item because the whole experience of shopping was so traumatic, she would rather leave it in the wardrobe unworn that face going back to the shop.  She would remove the price tag because she resented it having cost her money, but the item would taunt her from her wardrobe, reminding her of the anxiety she felt when shopping!

How we feel in our clothes is so much more than just image.  It’s about being comfortable in your own skin and that comes with support and encouragement from a style confidence coach, who spends time listening to what your concerns are and how to find solutions, leaving you free to choose clothes that you look and feel confident in.

Congratulations on taking your first step on your style journey,

Why look good when you can look and feel great?
