Key Components of Great Style: Feeling comfortable in your own skin and clothing. Classic always wins and adding a bit of trend with accessories is the way to go. Clean and neat, ironed clothing, shiny shoes with well maintained heels.2. Creating a Signature Style: Start with inspiration. Tear looks from magazines, create a Pinterest board of style, and begin to clearly define what you like. Once you have inspiration, use an essential checklist to fill in your closet. Enhance your look with updated styles and fine tune with accessories.3. The "Must Have" Little Black Dress: Find one you love and have it tailored to fit your curves perfectly.4. Headshots: Stay away from trendy items that will date the photos quickly. Be aware of shapes, a boat neck can make you look more broad, and a v-neck may be too revealing.5. Five Minute Meditation: This simple act every day will invoke a deeper state of relaxtion and awareness.Dawn is definitely a #MoxieLady to follow.
