Recently, I was in a breakthrough session with a lady and she admitted to me that 25% of the few hundred she follows on Instagram are fashionistas, fashion bloggers or stylists. She giggled and said, “I follow you too, Michele.”
I smiled through the phone and asked her, “Lady, can you tell me the top 3 things you’ve learned from them about how to create your own style?”
She paused. “Well, no,” she said, “I just look at their posts for inspiration.”
“I see,” I said, “In that case, can you tell me what specific inspirations you’ve learned about your own body, color palette and message you’ve learned from them?”
A longer pause.
“Well…..no,” she answered with disappointment in her voice.
I know, Ladies. I used to be where you are - except back when I was frustrated with my body, confused about where to shop, and hating my entire closet, there wasn’t a whole internet full of social media with examples of gurus telling me what to wear and how to wear it based on how they looked in it.
You’ve got a harder time.
Because by the time all that came along, I had a system for myself and my clients that turned the focus away from what every one else was doing and directly to what was happening in myself.
Exactly how it needs to be to get it right.
So if you are following a whole bunch of people on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook even, start finding your style by.... unfollowing (and liberally).
They can’t help you define your style. Only you can do that with a COMPLETE solution from head to toe, DEEP personal discovery, and loving SUPPORT. Women don’t change permanently without it.
How many do you follow? How’s that working for you?
