Dress for Success – story of fashion and empowerment

They say that FASHION is about more than clothing but it symbolize empowerment and confidence to face the world. Everyday, I wear different clothes and portrays a different role. I can be fierce, sweet, dainty and energetic or sometimes, i can just be a simple mom to my two kids.  Whatever clothes I wear defines who and what I am as a woman, employee, student, mother, wife, blogger and social media influencer.

“Clothes are powerful, you’re selling confidence because what you wear has the ability to tell a story about who you are.” These words are too powerful that can define you as a person and what you want to portray in life.   They say that your personality is often a strong indicator of what you wear and because our moods differs everyday, there are tendency that your fashion will vary on your daily moods.

Professor Karen J. Pine, of the University of Hertfordshire  (U.K.) writes in her very short book Mind What You Wear: The Psychology of Fashion “When we put on a piece of clothing we cannot help but adopt some of the characteristics associated with it, even if we are unaware of it.”

Finding the right clothes not just boost our confidence but give us life and meaning.  My clothes does not just affect my confidence level but also influences my day. I believe in FashionCare and most of all I don’t forget that confidence is the best of accessory in life, so I have to grasp every moment and live each day with gratitude and happiness.

Take a peek into my life and the different clothes I wear that defines who I am as a person.

I was once an ugly duckling, I have no idea on how to dress properly, fashion is never my thing in the past until one day when I decided to become a BLOGGER and social media influencer, my life change in a drastic but good way. I need to be versatile and  not just following the hottest trends in the net but I wanted to show my readers that despite our busy schedules and life, a mom like me can still be chic, fashionable and always ready to take the world at the tip of my hand.  As a blogger, you need to define your style.  It takes a lot of effort to balance your life as an employee, a mother and a wife and a social media influencer. I believe that there will always be crazy and lazy days but it doesn’t mean that you should stop taking care of yourself and look great not just on your outside but also on the inside. So, even If you wear your high heels or boots, color your nails blue or green and put on red or orange lipsticks, wear your best self.

One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.’ – Karl Lagerfeld

Live the life you wanted and do the things you enjoy doing.  That is one thing I have learned in my life. Helping our environment and creating awareness on healthy living is what I believe is a part of my role, my social responsibility. I find confidence on knowing that others believe in me and follow the advocacy i chose.

“Clothes aren’t going to change the world, the women who wear them will’ – Anne Klein

 Through FASHION  and the clothes you are wearing, you are creating a big impact on promoting your advocacy.

Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express the way you dress and the way you live.’ – Gianni Versace

And the best clothes I LOVE THE MOST is being a WIFE and MOTHER. Being with my family forgets all my worries and help me realize the things I am willing to sacrifice and willing to give up for the sake of their happiness. With them, i don’t need to wear my stylish dress or my stilettos but I can always wear my best PASSION, being a good mother and wife and share to my children my passion for fashion.

‘Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.’ – Alexander Wang

The clothes we wear defines who we are  and each day we wear a different fashion, let us all remember to be a woman of substance and beauty and most of all with purpose, having that confidence to take on every challenge that comes our way will make our life worth living.

Here’s a simple tip to boost your confidence through the way you dress 🙂

    • Dress for success, be comfortable on your body, embrace all your flaws and remove all insecurities.
    • Find the right color that compliments your own skin.  Get the right fit and cutting. Some people start from the basic colors like, black, grey, white. But you can go with bright colors and designs if you like.
    • Sunglasses, accessories are some of the things that can help boost your appearance. Get some quality pieces that goes along with your clothes.
    • Dress appropriately according to occasion.  It’s always nice to be unique but don’t forget that there are some appropriate clothes on different occasion which you needed to consider.

    • Be align with your fashion.  They say that what you wear represents your personality.  So, make sure you are sending your true intentions.

And now, i am ending my post by sharing you my favorite quotation from my favorite actress.

  • The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.’ – Audrey Hepburn

    Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self.

    lots of love 🙂  melandria

Be Stylish without Breaking the Bank!

If you love, love, love fashion but your checking account is screaming at you to stop shopping, you may be ready for a new style strategy. Saving money doesn’t mean you have to forego style; instead learn to forego impulse buying and you’ll find you can afford many more new outfits than when you just buy what you like the first time you see it! Be stylish without breaking the bank. Here’s a secret strategy for filling your closet without breaking your bank account:

Choose your favorites as soon as the new fashions hit the stores. Note the brand, size, and color you love but don’t buy the outfits.

Check the store’s website and save your future outfits so you know where you found them, but don’t buy the outfits!

Compare prices on the same clothing at other major retailers. Usually top designer stores such as anntaylor.com carry the same styles and brands, so you should be able the find your favorites at several other stores.

Download an app such as Groupon and check the stores on the site. Thousands of retailers use the app for advertising, and your stores are most likely among them. Don’t buy yet, though!

Now it’s time to play the waiting game. Mark your calendar, and check the websites every week or two. When your favorite outfits hit the clearance section you’ll be tempted to buy right away, but if you wait a bit longer you’ll realize even bigger savings!

When your outfits hit a price range that’s too good to be true, wait just a bit longer. Check the other stores you’ve bookmarked as carrying the outfits, and then check your Groupon app to find the best price ever. Since some stores feature up to 70 percent off the marked clearance price you’ll most likely have to do a bit of math to find the winning low price!

Download your coupon or discount code to your phone, and add it to your internet shopping cart when you purchase your new wardrobe. If you’re shopping in-store, give the code or coupon to the cashier.

That’s it! You’ve just saved a bundle on your latest fashions!
