Recently Ditch the Clique interviewed my FAV men’s stylist @dave.diazjr for an upcoming project (make sure you’re following here or on instagram for more on that VERY soon.) To be honest, his response has me thinking A LOT about the relationship between body and mind when it comes to looking AND feeling good.
My guess is, whether you’re a self-proclaimed fashionista or not, you know the power of a “good” outfit. You know the type that fits like a second skin, flatters your figure, and is the PERFECT color for you? When you put it on you feel beautiful, confident, and ready to rule the world…YES that’s the “good” outfit I’m speaking of! Not only does it look good but it makes your FEEL good too, right?

Dresses for Summer? …GROUNDBREAKING!

When I wrote my Spring Style blog post, I was CERTAIN COVID restrictions were coming to an end! I was confident life would be back to “normal” by summer…and…here we are. Although New York City is on the brink of normalcy with retailers and restaurants slowly reopening (within restriction of course), I’m ready to show off my summer style NOW (even if it is just for dinner with my husband or socially distant drinks with friends on my stoop).
One of the BEST things I’ve done for myself during quarantine is edit my wardrobe. Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time asking myself the important wardrobe questions like what colors am I drawn too? What fabrics do I find most comfortable (and sweat the least in LOL)? What styles make me feel the most ME?
