Scary time for yours truly… admitting something close to my heart…
I would *love* to do style and color consultations professionally. As much fun (and it is!) to dress my friends up… eventually you run out of friends to make into your personal Barbie dolls. If you’d like to consult me and you don’t know me, for heaven’s sake contact me! This is my art, and it has been for 30 years.
I’ve always felt like I wasn’t … enough… to make this happen. I don’t live in a rich area. I’m overweight. I don’t care about fashion – only style and beauty. I’m not high-maintenance in my personal grooming habits. I don’t LOOK like a fashion consultant! And how can you market your ability to make someone look amazing when you, quite frankly, do not?
And then I decided to start taking my own wardrobe a lot more seriously. Taking myself as a client, as t’were. That’s one of my 2015 goals – to start dressing myself the way I’d tell myself to dress, not haphazardly, but with a plan. And embracing the fabulous. (Unless, of course, I really am cleaning or baking or digging about in the garden).
I’ve got a start. A couple of nice dresses, a beautiful coat… yes, I have a start. But it’s time to make more than a start. It’s time to start planning, start moving….
And if making a business out of fashion consulting doesn’t turn out to be the next big thing? Well, at least I’ll look great doing whatever it is I end up doing!
