Are You the Leading Lady in Your Life?

"Create your wardrobe in such a way that when you dress in the morning you feel like a leading lady in your life." ~By Yours Truly

I watched the movie "The Holiday" the other night...have you seen it? If you haven't- it's a must see!  It's about two women who've feel love is hopeless after terrible breakups.  They need a change and swap houses with each other to get away from their lives.  Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet are fantastic in this movie because they really capture all the complexities of true heartbreak.  While Kate Winslet is at Cameron Diaz's house she meets a man who's about 90 years old.  He makes a tiny little remark that sets her on an entirely new path of self-confidence and happiness.  What did he say? "In a movie, there's a "Leading Lady" and "The Bestfriend"- you, I can tell are a leading lady, but you're acting like the best friend...."

Aha! Profound insight into her tangled self point of view.

Does it apply to yours? 

I took this character's words to heart and thought about creating your ideal wardrobe based around the things you LOVE. Wouldn't it be fantastic if your outfit reflected your role in your life as "The Leading Lady" rather than "The Best Friend?"  Best part about this is that we all have control over what we decide to wear- every single day. 

We are aware of what color, what style, and what accessory makes us do a double-take in the mirror.  So why aren't you wearing it?  Most women keep things like old sweats, baggy t-shirts and faded prints because we feel like maybe we spent a lot of money on it, think we'll fit into after we berate our bodies to lose the extra weight, or because we feel like we'll never have money to buy clothes again. This is simply not the case.  Instead, you're making room for the kind of person you envision yourself being. Who you like to be!  The clothes and style that make you smile back at yourself in the mirror are exactly the ones you should be wearing!

Don't discount them if it's "too formal/professional/striking/hot/sophisticated/inappropriate for what you're doing. That is just your illusion of being undeserving of your own happiness. I really urge you to take time today to rediscover what you love wearing; what makes you smile and wear it from now on, sister! No excuses!
