Last night I attended Wine, Women & Shoes at the Four Seasons Hotel, benefiting the fabulous Seattle Children’s Home. The special guest speaker for the night was Bobbie Thomas, the Style Editor for the Today Show.
I loved listening to Bobbie speak, as she wasn’t fashion diva, she was real world. Before getting into the style world, she, along with her Masters in Psychology, worked with women getting out of abusive relationships. In that work Bobbie saw what, in the scheme of the world seemed like small or frivolous things, had so much power in making these women have a better day. A new outfit, some cosmetics, could literally add a little joy into ones world. We don’t need to be in a bad situation, to harness this power. The next time you are feeling blah, bloated or just plain bad, move past the urge to go grunge. Put the sweats down and pick out something pretty. Take 5 extra minutes to add some fabulous through jewels or lipstick, looking good makes you feel good. Happy women, confident women, change the world.
