“I’ve been style-challenged pretty much most of my life. It had become a way of life…stressing over what to wear, deciding on something, and most times feeling unattractive, unsexy, and worst of all, not feeling myself. On one of those days I was waiting in an audition room, feeling badly about what I was wearing (which of course affected my posture, my voice, my mood, my confidence!). It was that familiar anxiety creeping up again, putting negative thoughts about myself in my mind, and I had enough! I decided that day I didn’t want to feel like this anymore. I took an honest evaluation of my personal and business life, and realise that many times I fell short of booking a job or reaching out to increase my network of friends because I didn’t feel great about myself. One big reason was (and I sometimes marvel at how much this has already changed for me!) I didn’t like the way I looked, which snowballed into wilting my energy, confidence, and true personality. I called Scarlett and asked her to help me to literally step into the strong, confident, sexy woman I know I am at the core but who isn’t physically present when I look in the mirror.Scarlett has an amazing ability to get to know you quickly and choose looks that accentuate your unique and best qualities. I know that 2013 is going to be the best year ever for many blessed reasons. My intention is to be the best person I can be, and to share the best of me in this world in what I do and who I am. I’m at my best when I feel great, and wardrobe stylist Scarlett has transformed an aspect of me that needed a boost. I feel more ready than ever to get out there and do it! Thank you, Scarlett! You are a style rock star!”
