What If Clothing Could Heal?

Hi Beauty,

Have you ever felt like you cannot figure out what to wear? Like, painfully standing in your closet, pulling your hair out, so frustrated? I know you are not alone. 

Over the past 2 years, I have taken a deep dive into how our everyday choices in what we wear can actually create a supportive healing effect. There is nothing more disempowering than feeling like you don't fit into your clothes, your style is out of date, or your body is just plain uncomfortable in what you wear.

I feel you. This has happened to me so often. It has stalled me from leaving the house in a timely manner or kept me from wanting to go out at all!

But, I found a solution. It feels like a miracle. I would love to share it with you.

My goal has always been to create transformative experiences for women. What I never knew is how much learning I still had to do to develop work that can create an empowered woman who moves with ease and grace, who stands confidently in her decisions, who knows that what she wears authentically reflects her true self.

I used to see myself through the “lack” lens.

“I have not gotten there yet...”

“I haven’t made it yet….”

“One day, I will have….”

“They will love me when….”

“Someday it will all work out…”

I am sure one of these thoughts has crossed your mind once or twice?

The funniest part about this type of thinking is that I was actually defensive and justified all my actions, thereby solidifying why nothing worked out.

Wow...what a downward spiral! Seriously, have you ever felt this way?

4 years ago I started experiencing episodic paralysis. My central nervous system was calling it quits after 10 years in NYC and not listening to my body! I evacuated The City and headed straight to my place of restoration: Kennebunk Beach, Maine. Over the past 4 years I have spent my time learning to see life through a new lens.

Daily as I woke and recreated the dialogue with my body, I asked it what it needed to be as effective and powerful as possible. I found my salvation in fashion; more important, I found my expression in how I chose to dress daily.

Not knowing if I would be able to walk home or even make it out of the house, the clothing I wore became a microcosm of expression for support, a release of fear, a protection of energy, or a way to enhance my energy. But it wasn't just about the clothes - it was about creating hope, confidence, freedom and comfort.

It was no longer about what people thought about me. But specifically about what worked for me and how I could help other women dress to feel the same sense of confidence and security.

That is how Create Your Soul Style was born. A four-part system to:

  • Communicate who you are to others in an instant and make an incredible first impression
  • Have more confidence when being seen and showing up in your own life
  • Save time and money by gaining complete clarity on what to shop for based on your body and personal style
  • Increase your revenue and attract your dream clients or business situations

One of my goals when desiring to start a business was to speak on stage about my work (work that I had no idea I was going to create). I had a deep urge to share my story, but also to challenge the way we see, feel and experience life.

In March I was honored to speak at Maine Live. I was able to express the new lens through which I view life now. I was able to share the new work I’ve created over the past 2 years. I was able to touch the hearts and minds of the 400 people in the room, and now I can share it with you!

Sharing my journey to creating a business to support thriving entrepreneurs and professionals had a profound impact on me. It was a total dream come true!

I will never forget how a lovely gentleman came up to me after I spoke and shared how he so related to everything I said because he too worried about what to wear just that morning. Should he wear a coat and tie, a suit, a tie and sweater? It's a real conundrum for many people, and I deeply want it to be a pleasurable experience.
