This is setting up to be the perfect evening for reading, and I am about halfway through Bobbie Thomas’s book, THE POWER OF STYLE. Thomas has been the Style Editor for The Today Show on NBC since 2005, but it is her background in counseling and psychology which gives this book a unique perspective.
I am living proof working on the outsides helped me grow strength on the insides. Confidence is powerful and powerfully attractive. By working on my outsides at age 50, my confidence began to return and soar. According to Thomas, “Being stylish is not about having a certain body type or bank account. It’s about embracing your individuality and radiating that spirit in your work, relationships, and everywhere else.”
Style doesn’t mean we all look alike…individuality is a key component. She includes this quote I love from Lynn Harless, “It’s good to be different. No one ever stood out in a flock.”
Just for kicks, I went to Bobbie’s website where she opens a page for anyone to download a picture and ask for first impressions....so I said, OK I'M GAME! We get to pick the criteria for others to log in their first impressions….I have people saying I am in my 40s, 50s, and 60s…I will just focus on the positive!! You might want to check it out HERE
I am looking forward to her chapters on color and fit…hopefully will finish it this evening.
Ok, remember warmer weather is when more yard sales pop out and they can be so much fun! I love a morning hitting the yard sales and topped with a fun luncheon at a new place!! A few years ago, I showed up at a yard sale just as the homeowners were closing and filling bags for Goodwill. When they saw me looking at the scarf in this picture, they told me I could have it! SCORE! Yard sales always bring unexpected surprises.
HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND! And please tell us what you are currently reading…..
