Hamptons Hipster: The First thing you should know in creating a wardrobe you love!

Dress with Intent….Deep cleansing breath and …. Go!

Dress with Intent means that you put care and effort into getting dressed and expressing your best self that day.  Think of it as the same as getting a massage or brushing your teeth.  You do these things for yourself but in turn they also have a positive impact on those around you.  You are more relaxed and you don’t have stinky breath and rotted teeth.    You are intentionally trying to create a positive force in the world simply by getting dressed.  In some small way you are caring for the world.  YES!! (add fist pump here)

I know it sounds a little woo woo.   It doesn’t mean dressing to gain a positive reaction from someone else—we don’t have control over what other people think.   But if I can walk out the door knowing that I have put the effort in to expressing my best self today, it’s a really good start.

I mention this a lot when I am working with clients.  The idea that getting dressed in the morning before you face the world should be the highlight of your morning routine.  This is the moment that you get to choose who you are that day.  As with so many things it starts with an idea—once you have clarity on that idea everything else falls into place.  Many people come to me wanting to know how to get that clarity in their closet. They have amazing clothes that feel right when they leave the store but somehow it doesn’t translate to their real lives. Why not?  No clarity.  Having clarity on how you want to look is just as important as the clothes themselves.  Enter a little thing I call:

YOUR WARDROBE IDUntitled

Your wardrobe ID is the starting block for any outfit.  Here comes the woo woo again:  It is the combination of ideas that you want to express at a certain moment:

How do you want to feel? For example:  if I were going on a job interview to, say, a law office, my wardrobe ID would be something like fierce, in control, and Robin Wright in House of Cards.  Then I would go to my closet and choose pieces that made me feel that way.  Here’s a good formula to start:

1 FEELING + 1 CHARACTER= YOUR WARDROBE ID

DRESS WITH INTENT

Choosing a feeling will help you get clear, choosing a character will give you a visual reference to build the outfit.   I’d like to take a moment thank all the amazing costume designers for giving us wonderful tools to express our best selves!

I invite you to try this over the next week.  Have some fun! Go to the FabInjection Facebook Page and tell me what you came up with!  Click here to download the simple FabInjection Wardrobe ID Sheet.  If you need a place to start, here are 3 of my favorite ladies that always inspire me!

You are the main character in the movie of your life—you might as well look incredible.

Attend my workshop this Sunday!  It will be based on the Dress With Intent Module.  We will explore our intentions behind getting dressed, make some Wardrobe ID boards and get in depth with how to use your Wardrobe ID in your life!  I hope you can make it.

Hamptons Hipster: Nicole Miller goes Tribal for Fall 2014

NICOLE MILLER: MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK Fall 2014 COLLECTIONS… Nicole Miller is one of my favorite designers, there are many pieces in this 2014 Fall Collection that I like and there are some that confused me. I found the collection, edgy, feminine and sexy. The Tribal Theme was  dark and yet  intriguing, sexy and Fierce.

I loved that Nicole had so many separates in this collection that could be mix and matched. The styling and make-up went with the Tribal Theme,  dark, edgy and Fierce. I do wish she added some bold colors to the collection  because it was just a bit too dark for me. I personally do not care for Peacocks but I thought she did a beautiful job with those pieces.

I Can’t Wait to wear my figure Hugging Dresses Again! Muffin Top be gone…Figure Hugging dress here I come… Have you tried that :Crazy Wrap Thing It Works”

I am looking forward to wearing my figure hugging dress again, and hopefully sometime this year. Last year a friend of mine introduced me to a product called “IT WORKS SKINNY WRAPS”. I was told it was a wrap that you place on your stomach and  that it tightens*tones & firms in as little as 45 minutes. She told me it reduces the appearance of cellulite and gives you fast & lasting results and that it was a botanically based formula. I was skeptical and I did not believe I would be able to see results after one use, so I held on to it for several weeks before I decided to give it a try. Well my friends one night I decided to try it, and IT WORKED exactly how my friend said it would. I was satisfied with the results and I thought I would share my experience with you. This crazy wrap thing is trending all over the internet and women all over the world are professing their complete satisfaction. 943676_609551469055965_2109128438_n1

I don’t know about most of you, but for me the hardest part of my body to lose extra fat, or should I say my ‘MUFFIN TOP’, is my waist and stomach area!! I admit I have been very lazy with working out, but I am definitely in the zone right now and I will be using Skinny wrap combined with a good nutritious diet and exercise because IT WORKS! Don’t take my word try it yourself and let me know what you think.  

It is botanically based, all natural, formula delivers maximum tightening, contouring, hydrating, toning and firming results. The ingredients promote optimal skin health, skin nutrition, NOT water weight loss. I was told to drink plenty of water while wrapped to stay Hydrated.

My Goal is to fit into this Dress by Spring, I think I can do it….I am hopeful I can get rid of my Muffin Top so Spring, here I come!!!
