our philosophy - "Style for YOUR lifestyle"
Being in the fashion industry, I read a lot of related articles, magazines, blogs etc. There is one phrase that is used all too often, that drives me BATTY: "must have". The 10 shoes every woman "must have" in her closet: The 12 pieces every woman "must have" by the time she is thirty: The "must have" pieces for Fall. REALLY??? Isn’t fashion supposed to be about individuality? Aren’t these supposed to be suggestions and not mandates?
Stylempower’s tagline is "Style for your lifestyle", which clearly means that you make the choices that work for you. If you don’t ever want to own a little black dress… you don’t have to. If you prefer color or print ...go for it! If you never want to wear a dress again ...don’t. Just make sure that the pants you wear are appropriate for the occasion.
For those who know me well, some of fashion's "must haves" will never be seen in my closet: ballet flats or a tan trench coat, for instance. They look great on other people, but are simply not my style and I choose not to own them. Similarly, the people that own these items may never choose to wear a motorcycle jacket or stilettos. Some ladies will wear it all. And we can each look equally fabulous in our own personal styles.
So the next time you read about the "must have" fashion item, feel free to balk at it and say "that simply is not style for my lifestyle".
