Your Image (and the fashion you wear) is a Necessity, not a Luxury
It’s no wonder that real world of today sees fashion as the extravagance of crazy people. Articles such as the one I read recently in the Wall Street Journal showing a musical celebrity wearing hoops and strings and calling it ‘fashion’ would lead any normal individual to say ‘Who needs fashion?’
My answer to that is – do not be fooled. Real fashion for the real world is a necessity – not a luxury. Most people who read articles or look at magazines see the ads and still have no idea what looks great on them this is when frustration settles in and our concern for personal image fades and everyone begins to dress like their mother or father because it is what they know. Most of us seek to blend in versus show our own individuality.
This is where a good coach will help – someone who knows fashion, designers and brands and which work best for each different body type and personal or professional goal. It is impossible to simply look at the pictures in fashion ads and then just buy the outfit you think you would look good in. Rarely is that true – a great example of this confusion can be when someone who cares about you tries to buy you an article of clothing. We get the clothes and on the outside we say, “Thanks I love it,” and on the inside we say, “Well that just doesn’t work for me – it may look good in the magazine or on a mannequin but it is not what I would wear.” MODA is in the business of turning fashion into something that you look forward to a tool that benefits your life, not simply covers you up.
Here are some reasons to use an experienced REAL FASHION AND WARDROBE CONSULTANT versus a salesperson.
- Clothing and how we dress each day is important in determining our personal attitude throughout the day. When we feel good about our outer appearance we let our inner confidence shine through. Great fashion is the equivalent of saying, I love me, and true success always begins with a clear and correct understanding of how we feel about ourselves.
- How we dress is a witness to others. When we dress our best it tells other around us that we think they are important too. We have all been around an improperly dressed individual and thought to ourselves that their clothing seemed to express a sense of disrespect for the situation or the people around them. When you dress properly, your image sends a message that says you care about others, you care about yourself and you expect the best for everyone around you. You single handedly create an atmosphere for success. This is true for your personal and professional lives.
- Fashion is about creating the right fit and the right look for you. God made us each unique your fashion should match what you do all day, whom you will be around and your goals. Quality clothing is a good investment, buying what is cheap will last but a short time and is a waste of money. (You should always invest in the essentials undergarments, black slacks, white button down shirt, great pair of jeans etc). An experienced fashion consultant, who knows the brands, understands how they are made and is educated on each company that produces the clothing can help you get clothing that works like you do. If you spend time driving and getting in and out of cars, or you are sitting at a desk all day, then you need fashion that matches your daily tasks. Real fashion for a real world.
MODA is a company that helps you make the wise investment in your future. Everyone wants to look good and present the best personal and professional image. We are a very busy generation working, raising families, going from event to event and starting our day earlier and finishing it later. It is no wonder that shopping and buying great quality clothing has become such a drain on our wallets and our personal image.
When we buy the wrong items we waste valuable dollars when we give up on looking good we can wound our personal and professional presence and send false signals that hurt us in the long and short run. Magazine ads paint an unrealistic picture of what fashion really is. Fashion is about being who you are on the inside and sharing that on the outside it is about staying within a budget and looking your best – it is about taking time and getting coached on what is best – and finally, fashion is really about expressing who YOU are.
MODA is here to help you get back to the basics in order to help you look your best and improve your personal and professional relationships. Fashion is a tool that allows you to express on the outside how you feel and who you are on the inside. Once you have a more confident and approachable appearance, you will notice more opportunities to connect with other and expand your audience. Fashion is not about hoops as a dress or strings hanging on a wire and calling it fashionable. Sometimes someone needs to say. The emperor has no clothes
