Sharing the love

This week is about giving the fashion love. I am going to see a group of ladies tomorrow night to give a wee talk which I hope will inspire a bit of self reflection and love and/or acceptance of what the good lord gave us (bumps and all).

It is important to people's confidence that if they are looking good, someone needs to tell them. Too many people get up, chuck on any old clothes and leave the house starting the day not feeling and looking their best. That's pretty standard.

But hey, when someone does make an effort, whether it be the stranger on the bus or a workmate, take the time. Share the love. TELL them they look good. I AM that crazy woman that stops people in the middle of the street to tell them a colour looks good on them. Be that person too. Because if its ever happened to you, you realise just how happy it makes you feel and you have a little bounce in your step for the rest of the day.

This is not restricted to women either. A recent male client (you know who you are and are reading this!!) had his all-male meeting stopped mid-way to be told a coloured shirt he was wearing really suited him. Shocked? Don't be, men and women notice.

Share the love. Compliment someone today. The more people are told they look good in a certain shape or colour, the more they realise it suits them.

I do that too! Sometimes I just love what someone is wearing too much to keep my mouth shut.
