When you’re thinking of the fashion capitals of the world, Birmingham, Alabama is probably not a city that comes to mind. But the founders of Magic City Fashion Week (set for October 24 – 28) are out to change that, and this is great news not just for local models and designers, but for local bloggers, too.
In my next writing life I want to be a fashion blogger. I love reading about fashion. I love thinking about fashion. I love planning outfits for special occasions and everyday looks.
There’s only one problem — I hate to shop. And this weekend I’m attempting to revamp my wardrobe as I prepare to return to the classroom for the 2016-2017 school year and try to upgrade my look as I prepare to take my personal brand and business to the next level.
To get my mind right for this adventure, last week I watched a webinar by fashion blogger Jeniese Hosey of The Jenesaisquoi and style coach Megan LaRussa Chenoweth. The webinar was meant to teach us attendees “How to Know Where to Shop and What to Buy…Without Breaking the Bank.”
I knew it would be helpful. Jeniese is one of my favorite fashion bloggers and two years ago I was a student in Megan’s virtual style coaching program, Style Yourself Chic, a program that helped me improve my look in a way that gave me the confidence to turn my blog into a business. Now it’s time to turn that business into an empire! And I want to look good while I do so.
Fashion isn’t simply about clothes; it’s about confidence. And I think most style bloggers would agree with me.
In my latest column for B-Metro Magazine, I wrote about the outfit I wore for my Birmingham Business Journal Top 40 Under 40 photo shoot and how that outfit actually taught me valuable lessons about business and about life. In addition to those lessons, which you can read about here, I’ve learned something else important about fashion: Sometimes you need to look the part to get the role.
Last year when I made the decision to take myself seriously as a businesswoman part of that meant trying to always look my best. I knew I needed help and so last fall I signed up for Style Yourself Chic, a virtual style coaching program by Megan LaRussa Chenoweth of Southern Femme.
