Divas, we are talking about style and beauty today! Woohoo…one of my favorite topics! In her book, Quintessential Style, Author Janna Beatty, discusses “the art of illusion” when it comes to the clothes we wear as well as our handbags. She says…
MOVING LINES: Did you realize the placement of your shoulder or handbag could make you look wider? For example, if you carry a large shoulder bag at hip level, it is visually extending your hipline. That’s right. It actually makes you appear broader. So be strategic when choosing handbag styles. Opt for styles that allow you to lengthen or shorten your shoulder strap. Oftentimes, you can even tie a knot in the strap or double it up to shorten it.
WHAT? I’ve been doing it wrong ALL these years!! I certainly do not need to look wider at the hips…for real!
This is going to be a fun show! I will put Janna on the hot seat and ask her all the tough questions, like colors…what do our choice of colors say about us. The next time you send a photo, a SnapChat, or decide to meet a new friend, consider the color of what you’re wearing (your clothes) is saying about it. Janna says, “it can make or break a first impression.”
As time permits, I’ll ask her about body shapes; shopping for the ‘right fit’ instead of the right size; what does ‘intentional dressing’ mean; and much, much more!
Divas, DO NOT miss this show. I guarantee it will be informative and tons of fun!
When: Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. EST

That’s all for now! Until next time, wear your heels well and be blessed!
