You may be saying, style and the way you dress, is low on your list of priorities and my response to that is, you may need to reevaluate your priorities. Case and point, what many don't understand is their personal style is form of non-verbal language. Style is a nonverbal form of communication but we speak it differently, so knowing what and how to speak, is certain to make you better understood. The best way to find out how to speak your style truth, begins with knowing who you are and or who you desire to be. The next step is to consult support. The best form of support you can seek comes from an expert in the field, in this case I mean a stylist, of course.
A stylist is a good investment, its my profession and passion, so I am speaking as a professional and as a consumer, when I make that statement. The stylist will dispel the myth that it requires oodles of money and high end labels, to look great, and a good stylist will show you and teach you how. A stylist will navigate your challenges, whether it is the confidence to wear a certain color, or how to reinvent your existing wardrobe, without having to purchase something new.
They will give you the tools necessary to be a savvy shopper and learn "how" to dress for your given/chosen persona. All this is to say just because you spent a lot of money to look good it doesn't mean you were successful, at exuding opulent style. Just think of the times you've seen someone dressed head to toe in labels, looking more a like a marketing ploy for the designer, verses a savant couturier. And just because you consider yourself simple and modest doesn't mean this should translate to cheap and frump . Its my belief that anyone, yes anyone, has the ability to have great personal style, that is uniquely their own and it doesn't take a black card, to own it.

Your mancrush may be near and dear or perhaps far-fetched, depending on his social status and locality. If you are on any type of social media, than you know Mondays are now reserved for celebrating these men, perfectly labeled as eye candy and undeniably worth celebrating for their good looks, charm, and swag appeal. My macrush is my husband and he deserves this title for many reasons but today I want to emphasize how his MCM value is instinctively intertwined with his impeccable style. He is what I like to call a style chameleon, namely because of his innate ability to adapt and reinvent looks, at the drop of a hat. He can give you "Classic Man" Jidanna style one day and hippie grunge ala Lennie Kravits another day, without missing a beat. His style versatility is well rehearsed and coached a bit by me however his creative prowess and knowledge of self, is what embodies each look and sets him far above the rest. If you dont believe me check him out yourself, follow his blog www.grittyrebelgents.blogspot.com and/or follow him at @ahki_dc, but trust me he is MCM approved!
