Subconsciously we grab clothes out of our closet that make us feel good. It might be the color of the garment or the soft feeling of the fabric that draws us in. Perhaps we have something important to do that requires us to look business professional and one particular suit and blouse combination always makes us feel our best. With just a bit of thought we can make this a conscious effort and start off with a clear intention of feeling beautiful each day.
Tamar Ares, founder of Sitting With Souls, believes if we ask our BODY each day what it wants to wear and then take a moment to listen, we will experience a more fulfilling day wearing what is best for the upcoming day. Give it a try and see what happens.
Perhaps you feel you have no sense of style? Feeling beautiful in your clothing creates your style. It doesn’t have anything to do with whether other people like what you are wearing, if it follows the latest trend or cost you a lot of money. Only you have to like it and feel gorgeous in it.
It is difficult to put a finger on what makes the perfect piece of clothing. It is seldom the newest, trendy item you just purchased. Most often it is the black tank top that goes with everything or the Audrey Hepburn style black ankle skimmer that puts a skip in your step. These perfect pieces enhance your good parts and provide the backdrop for other pieces in your wardrobe.
Tamar recommends asking this when deciding whether to purchase something or not, “Will you bring abundance to my life?” Then, give yourself a moment to feel/hear/understand the answer. It may take a bit to get this technique down, but it is worth trying to see how this changes things in your life.
I have always recommended not buying anything unless it is the best darn thing you have seen and you cannot imagine living without it. One of my favorite purchases is a short pink ruffled skirt that I found on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles some years back for $29.99. There are a plethora of stores on Melrose all selling the same cheap LA trendy merchandise. I had just proclaimed to my fellow travelers, as I often do, not to buy anything unless it is perfect. Thank goodness I happened to fall upon this fantastic skirt or I would have gone home from my trip empty handed. You can see that it has been the inspiration for many ruffle-y garments since. It was the perfect thing.
Imagine if you only purchased the garments that are perfect and make you feel beautiful. Why not? This should save you money and create a wardrobe that makes you feel great each day.
