Make A StatementFriday, February 18, 2011
A while back (December to be exact), all I wanted was a few good books. Lucky me, I ended up getting all three! After a very busy Sping and Summer, I finally finished reading Style Statement by Carrie McCarthy and Danielle LaPorte, and I'm really glad I did. I may not be someone who is totally oblivious to style, but it wouldn't be a stretch to say my style needed some fine tuning. Sometimes all of the passing trends and influence from others can muddy the waters of your true self. This book aims to pull the real you out of everything else with a lot of questions and guidance. Of course, everyone's Style Statement will be different, and should be different, but here is what I came up with:
First of all, a Style Statement is encompassed in two little words, the first of which describes 80% of you, the second, 20% of you. My Style Statement is... drumroll, if you please... Cherished Inspiration. Since I'm better with pictures than with words, I'll explain it just that way.
