One of the main things that gets in the way of having an incredible style is not letting go of the past. It’s hard to say goodbye to the person we once were! So we keep the clothes that remind us of our previous selves and the good times we used to have.
Whether it’s with the women I work with, or in my own wardrobe, I see a lot of things in the closet that have no business being there! These articles of clothing don’t represent who we are today. Yet still we hold on!
The garment brings us back to a special era that we now see through rose colored glasses. It could be a baby pink slip dress that was worn through many good times, and we’re afraid that if we let the dress go, the person we were who once wore the dress will also disappear.
In this video, I share a story about letting go of my previous identity when I’d go out at night on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. I’d wear this particular dress as I was out and about looking for fun.
