Let me put this bluntly, I'm not your A-typical fashion obsessed being. Yes, I love clothing, and all that a really beautiful wardrobe can represent. But, I'm also a person who pinpoints certain periods in her life according to fashion shows. While some people are reminded of events when they hear a certain song, I'm reminded of events by collections. Michael Kors, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marnie, Kate Spade, Phoebe Philo for Chloe, and so many others trigger moments in my life.
As I sat transfixed to my screen, I watched as model and model came down the runway in designs that I can only describe as Sublime - a word I use only on rare occasions. Without giving too much away, each piece was more delightful than the next; with the starting point already at extraordinary.
The French have nailed my theory of self-expression and confidence as the basis for mastering True Style. Like many others, I too am fascinated with the way in which they carry themselves. They ooze confidence.
I hope you enjoyed the video and the post. Stay connected for more insider information directly from my slice of French paradise - C'est LA Vie Clothing Co.

To live beyoutifully acquires a very strong intimacy with self. When you know yourself in such a profound way, it awakens all that is within you - what makes you tick, what you prefer to dismiss, your values. This is the part of you that is undiminished by time. It is your essence and isn't characterized by a role you may have.
If you want to DIG even deeper into the subject of BeYoutiful, you can read about it in True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface or by subscribing to the STYLE with Glenda K. Harrison website and you'll begin receiving The DIG. The January issue of The DIG is devoted to the subject - SUBSCRIBE.

Lately, though, the dipping of the toes has become far less exciting than taking the plunge. One evening, as I perused eBay (my go to sight for shopping) my eyes landed on the Leo print coat I'm wearing in this post. Something about it called my name. Immediately I could imagine it with slouchy jeans or a coverup for some sort of soiree. Nonetheless, I put in my bid and won. Splash! In that instance, my bond between Leo and I went from It's Complicated to In a Relationship.
For the inaugural Fragrant Pages post for 2019, I declared it as the year of Growth (if you missed the post, click Growth). As with the motto of STYLE with Glenda K. Harrison, I believe in nurturing and inspiring the entire woman - Soul, Mind, Body and of course, Wardrobe. With that being said, we can grow in all areas of our lives. When I speak of Growth for a wardrobe, I'm not speaking numeric, rather, I'm talking about a Growth mindset - One that will open our minds and inspire change, or challenge personal believes and norms.
Leo and I are stepping into a new territory, and I'm confident we'll make beautiful style stories together. What say you, dear friends, where can you grow in relation to your wardrobe? If you wonder where to begin, may I suggest the 'Mini' portion of the Harmony Approach called, Get to Know Your Fashion Personality assessment.
