I've been asked by a few of my lovely readers when they can wear their pearls, their new expensive wool coat or their designer clothes. My answer to this oft-asked question will not surprise the thousands of you who've read my books. If your new, expensive, best
clothes suit you, make you look fabulous and make you feel like a million dollars, I say: wear them every day, bien sûr!
On this You Tube video, I share a paragraph from my Amazon bestseller The Tidy Closet about wearing your best every day. I hope it inspires you to think that every day is a 'best' day.
Why would you want to wait until the last Sunday of the month with the letter 'r' in it, or until a Breakfast at Tiffany's-style date with your significant other?
Why would you want to delay wearing these magnificent clothes? As explained in my other style book "How to be Chic & Elegant", your ROI (Return on Investment) will significantly increase the more you wear them!
Have you asked yourself why you feel like you can' t wear your best every day? Do you feel not quite worth it on normal days? If so, please hear me when I tell you that you are beautiful EVERY day, not just Sundays, my dear friend.
Allow me to free you from these shackles of restraint that have kept you from looking your best every day.
Us French women don't seem to carry this guilt when it comes to style, fashion, or even food for that matter ;0) . We unashamedly wear our best, be they jewellery, coat, trousers, dress or shoes. Of course, this doesn't mean we dress up like Cinderella at the ball, but I'm sure you knew that already. We choose one fabulous piece for that day. This item makes us feel special and in return we give it gratitude and love. These are powerful feelings, guaranteed to make you happy for the day.
So, yes, take this style tip from French women. Wear your fabulous Cartier watch, those exquisite pearls from your grandmother, or even this divine Lanvin fragrance. Wear them. Love them. Every day. Make every day special and beautiful.
Please share with us in the comments below which pieces you're going to wear on 'ordinary' days from now on.
