#35 Money Matters When Thinking About Style

Hello, Style Classmates! This week let's chat about your deep thoughts on money and how it can hold you back from dressing as the most successful version of yourself 5-years from now (my 5-Year Rule). 

I recently read You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincere. It's a game changer, guys. I don't care what you think your relationship with money is like, it can always improve, and mine certainly has. It got me thinking, I wonder how much money mindset is holding people back from styling themselves?

Money is one of the associations one can have when they think about being stylish. Having money, spending money, looking like you have money. And if you have any hesitation about what money can do for you, then you may subconsciously start sabotaging your own closet.

"What if people think I think I'm better than them?"

"What if people think I'm stuck up?"

"What if people assume I'm a bad person?'

All these questions lead back to your own values and beliefs. You might as well be saying, "I think people with money are stuck up and bad." But as Jen Sincero writes, if you like what money can do for you and for the world when applied correctly, then talking shit about people that have it will hold yourself back from getting it. Money isn't going to come to a party where she is being shit talked, y'all! 

So, get the book. Read it. Take a hard look at your mindset on money. Now take a hard look at how you've held your style back to fit those money beliefs.

 More fun updates about free resources coming out soon and my thoughts on thinking about your future, what you will look like, and your perception of money or looking like you have money - inspired by the book You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero.

#34 Updates and Polishing Yourself for Work to Bring in the Right Clients

Oh hi! I know, I know! Shame, shame, I know your name (it's Rose). I took a few unexpected weeks off of podcasting and blogging...but I did some pretty cool stuff while I was away, so you have to forgive me! Forgive me! *wailing*

Okay, so you know how I told you that my first e-course had been seen by a rad video production company and they decided to invest their time and effort into creating a new e-course with me? Well, over the past few weeks we taped the main sections in a beautiful location (guys, the eye candy is insane) and got some of the b-role completed as well. Now I'm working on the other goodies that show you what the e-course will teach you (it's SO meaty). Oh, and did I mention that I wrote on book?

Yup, I was creating the handbook for the course and it just kept getting longer and longer and LONGER. And now it's a stand alone book we are shooting photography for this week. A mega paired down version will become the e-course handbook and this will be the perfect tool to check back in on if you get the e-course or something you can use as a stand alone tool for closet change in your life.

With the sweet comes a little sour. Because of all of this big work, I'm postponing the Mommy Makeover show just for a little bit until I get these two things launched. If you've already nominated someone or nominated yourself, please know that I will be keeping all those names for when the project continues, so stay tuned!

Oh! You want to stay tuned for the launches, events, and free goodies?! Join my update list here or my free Facebook style support group here!

Reminder: Be yourself and you'll attract the right clients!

This week on the podcast I also talked about the importance of presenting the polished version of YOU in working environments. Obviously, if their is a dress code you are going to need to adhere to it, but for those of you who work for yourselves...girl, you've got to be you to attract the right clients. Preach! You and I both know you've had some unfun clients in the past. The people that are hard, and needy, and don't end up even liking the service you provide because THEY AREN'T YOUR CLIENTS. Your style and essence cast way too wide of a net and now you are attracting the wrong clients AND the right ones...but you only want the right ones. 

How do you do this? Pump JUST enough personality into your wardrobe, learn what makes you super confident, then broadcast it with your style and energy. That broadcast will turn away those who aren't meant to be working with you and DRAW IN those who are. 

An example? A realtor with an edge who injects her personality into her wardrobe (a real life client). She is still polished enough that clients know she has her shit together, but the personality is there. Instead of wearing a matchy matchy grey skirt suit with a white blouse and neutral pumps (yawn), she chooses a black blazer over a red tee with tailored black and white pants, finished with jewelry she loves and slick black booties. Still appropriate for the houses she's showing, still appropriate for the business casual work environment, but shows just enough personality and she attracts the clients she LOVES working with.

How can you start injecting personality into your work wear?

Closet Organization and Trending Trendy Trends

On one of the two podcasts this week (YES, you read that right, I will now be putting out TWO podcasts a week - Mondays and Thursdays) I spoke about closet organization and added a few new segments to the podcast, including goofy intro music for each. Ha!

Up Your Closet Organization Game!

More than just cleaning out your closet, you can decrease the time it takes to get ready and the stress you feel in the morning by amping up your storage game. No matter how small your closets are you can use ALL of the space in a clever way. Let's say you just have a closet with a small bar and a shelf above. Can you better utilize the space above the shelf with more shelves and bins? Can you fold your pants, jeans, sweaters, and tees and stack them on that shelf to leave more space on the bar for pieces that NEED to be hung? Can you store shoes beneath your hanging items on floor shelving?

Get creative! Look for all the empty spaces and for goodness sake only store the items your wear and love in your closet. No board games. No memento boxes. You want a working closet. Winter items stored out of sight in the summer and vice versa. If your closet is a fun, pretty, organized space you will want to keep up with styling yourself. If it gets messy, cluttered, and is full of eye clutter you won't enjoy yourself. And this is supposed to be fun!

NEW Podcast Segments

So, I've added to fun segments to the podcast in addition to adding an extra podcast every week. The first is a segment called Trending Trendy Trends...LOL! I realize it is absolutely silly, but really, so are trends. Ha! So let's have fun with it, right?

This weeks trend was inspired by the goddesses over at Who What Wear and their piece on new fun ways to wear sweaters and cardigans. The cross body tie is slaying me. Love it. Totally going to try to pull that off.

The second new segment is called Momstyle Must-haves because the majority of my clients are mamas or women on the go and these trends will speak directly to their needs. This week was fashion sneakers because I bring them up to mamas that want to look current and still be comfy. These can be dressed up or dressed down and you can run run run around in them. Here are just a few examples with links to purchase.

Before I go, what do you want to talk about on my podcast? Know anyone that would be a great interview? Let me know in the comments! Have a great weekend, lovelies!

Style Class Headquarters and Bargain Hunting Tips

In this week's podcast I talked about my Style Class Headquarters reveal and great ways to bargain hunt for fancy items (at not fancy prices). 

Headquarters Reveal

Oh my gosh, guys! I love my office sooooo much. It's so important to eek out some special space for yourself. Whether its a sewing corner, a garage workshop, a bitching kitchen, zen closet, or an office. Just make some space for yourself in your home that is just for your passion. My "headquarters" was once just an office/storage area/extra room and now I've transformed it to the office of my dreams, complete with pretty shoe storage. Gah! Over the moon!

Bargain Hunting for Designer Goodies

I also spoke about all my best bargain hunting tips for finding designer bags, shoes, etc at discount prices. Does it take more work? Yup. Is it worth it if you like the finer things, but are on a budget. You bet! Most of my tips include finding items in resale shops and online spots, consignment, and thrift. Here are a few of my favorite Portland consignment, thrift, and swap joints as well as some national resources for finding designer goodies at a discount. And of course, a picture of the sweet, like new Kate Spade cross body bag I found for less than $20 on www.shopgoodwill.com

The 5-Year Success Rule and Announcements

I speak about this in my e-course (available here), but I think it's such a powerful tool in explaining how style and dressing with intent can change your life that I really wanted to share it with my listeners and readers. It's kind of an idea tailored to women who own businesses, but really any women can take this idea and run with it!

5-Year Success Rule

First, you have to know how important your branding is and how important your own image is to your branding. First impressions, both in-person and online, are almost instantaneous. This means we don’t have the time to explain our background, experience, education, etc. The only tool we can use in that instant is our visual representation. Sure, what you are wearing helps, but confidence is number one. It doesn’t mean looking like every other successful gal out there, you don’t want their customers...you want yours!

That’s just a long winded way of encouraging you to shine your light! Because your customers are out their looking for it. So, how do you achieve this? You start by thinking about your top three business goals for the next 5-years. Now close your eyes and think about the woman who achieved those goals. What does she look like when she enters a room? How does she hold herself? What does she expect from the people around her?

Now what is she wearing? Because that’s what you should be wearing NOW.

When you see that confident woman in the mirror it propels you forward and assures your clients you aren’t desperate for their business and they’d be lucky to work with someone who has it so together. What is a quick way to look put-together you ask? Well, I have a formula for that in my E-Course. ;)
