Look Effortlessly Good Every Day by Shopping Smart 

I look great because I shop smart. This is how I wear the latest trends and build my wardrobe for less and save money.

Look Good Effortlessly

  1. A classic look with a twist will always turn heads.
  2. I have been seeing the color yellow heavy on melanin beauties. I need to get some yellow in my wardrobe. It’s ok to experiment with colors.
  3. Those who are cute don’t have to try hard nor are they worried about another women’s look. Compliments are a sign of maturity. Some accessories and red lips will keep them talking.

Whether you are dressed up or dressed down don’t let anyone tell you who you’re supposed to be because you enjoy designer, fashion, and style. I noticed when you wear your confidence literally wear it that’s when people try to dig deeper into who you really are and your lifestyle. Meaning you can’t look good at a high expense when you don’t have enough income coming in to keep you at that level. I worked at a thrift store for 7 months and I’m not ashamed to shop at any. I have gotten Chanel makeup bags and I have also purchased a pair of Manolo Blahnik® shoes from a used retail shop. I don’t do it as much now because I have been blessed to make more than I did back in 05-06.

This look below was purchased at a thrift shop (2016) : shirt, necklace, jacket, and pants.

Why is it anyone’s business what you pay for your clothes or shoes if they don’t buy it? This post isn’t coming for anyone nor is it a sneak diss I’m stating my opinion and believe that those who secretly hate will discredit who you are because they can’t do it at that expense. Get your value how you get it. It could be passed down in a form of hand me downs, you might be blessed to make above average, have a man who takes care of you, a sibling of someone who made it, etc and the list goes on. Stop being mad at people for the way they shine it make you look bad and like a hater. (I remember entering to win a pair of Red Bottoms from Mashonda) Swizz Beats ex wife. We are not going to clock you when you buy those Versace’s you always wanted and saved up for.

Personal Branding For The Image Impaired

I’M WITH THE BRAND 

Never be afraid of your flaws that just might be the one thing we identify with. What is Angelina Jolie known for? You’re right you guess it. Her lips. The one thing I love about Madonna she never fixed her gap. Stop trying to buy perfect and use your signature part as part of your brand. (not so much Lebron James he fixed his hairline) We will definitely accept it, especially if we don’t have a choice.

I’M SERIOUS ABOUT MY BUSINESS 

Show your local clients how serious you are about your business they are more likely to take you seriously when awards, diplomas, and certificates are displayed. If you are worried about people stealing plaques or any other collectible vintage items chances are you have the wrong clients. Display your professional images. Your office is not a place for the things your grandparents gave you. Think about upgrading to one more bedroom or maybe you can turn the guest room into the home office. Make it very clear that people are not coming to lounge around. (sidenote) Some people are unorganized and easily distracted when everything is all in one when it comes to working from home. I been seeing a lot of influencers and entrepreneurs say they are ready for their physical office.

I’M ACTIVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA 

What’s is your Social Media language? Are you the influence you destined to be? Figure out a way that people can interact with you if you’re not gonna reply to every question. Create a hashtag whether it’s for asking you something or just sending tweets your way. #Ask(your name) or create something unique where only your tribe and community can associate with. The hashtag you create can be found by anyone on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Think of something unique that can be associated with only your brand.

I’M PROFESSIONAL 

Always remain professional when it comes to your brand I know you see people out here doing the most and branding themselves in a way they shouldn’t by following the crowd. Don’t make someone’s lifestyle your priority unless you want to offer them Branding Strategies. Know what your brand does and what it doesn’t please keep that in mind when it comes to sharing and promoting other people’s content. Stay real and true to yourself and your brand.
