Happy Thanksgiving Canada! Since I am grateful each and every day for the blessings in my life (yes, I am, I keep a daily gratitude journal and so should you), I decided to give special thanks today to something I omit on my daily list, but I love with all my heart.
Oh fashion, how I love you. Let me count the ways. I love you so much I dedicate my non working lawyerly hours to you. I live my life loving you every single moment of the day. You are a part of my DNA. God gave me an ability to love you and share you with the world. You are everywhere I turn. You are in my closet, on my feet, all over accessorizing me and you make my life passionate and fun.
Easy for me to love fashion because I am stylist by nature, and it’s just a part of my everyday life. But the reward of fashion is in capitalizing on the power it has. Fashion empowers us, delights us, allows us to dream. It simply has this magical ability to transform us into happier creatures. Who hasn’t had the experience of feeling a little bit taller, a lit bit more confidant and a whole lot better when we are wearing something that flatters us, and that we absolutely love?
This past week I had a teary moment when my colleague and friend ran into my office, thanking me for encouraging her to doll herself up for the day. I told her the night before that I wanted her to come in with a little bit of makeup, and I wanted to see some effort in her outfit. She thanked me and she was thrilled that she was receiving compliments throughout the day. This is the power that I’m talking about! My mission is materializing right before my eyes.
The beauty of fashion is found on the faces of happy, confidant, smiling people of all ages. Where would we be in a world without fashion? I can’ t even go there. I have often said I could never be a doctor because I could not live a life of scrubs as my OOTD. So thank you God for the gift of fashion.
May the power of fashion be with all of you. Amen xoxo
