A little laugh goes a long way

The fact is, sometimes it’s hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun. - Sex and the city


Clothes Condition Change in Self


I lived on the west coast and had some success in the Entertainment  Industry.  I landed a few roles in films and on television shows and  studied with Hollywoods best acting coach Howard Fine.  (I do not use the term best lightly, this man is a genius when it comes to understanding the human condition)   Howard taught me not only lessons in acting but also lessons in life.   It was through my education about human behavior that I learned some of  life’s most priceless … One of the lessons I learned was that clothes condition a change in self.   If you think about this it really does make a whole lot of sense in  becoming a better you, not only on the outside but inside too.  When I  moved back to Boston last year I found myself looking around in  amazement at some of the fashion’s here… I noticed that many people just  had no idea how the way they dressed altered the way that they were  viewed, I do not think I am above this but it has been through the work I  did in understanding the person I am that I am now able to see this in  others.  I have worked with many Bostonians in developing their personal  styles and I am now writing a blog to hopefully help more people here  in Boston and beyond!!
Boston is an amazing city to live in.  It’s  beautiful, it’s alive,  it’s smart but the one thing it’s not is  stylish.  I mean we have a lot  of rocket scientists living here,  Literally, but what Boston is  lacking is a fashion sense. I think it  comes down to the fact that many  Bostonian’s were ever taught the do’s  and definitely do not’s of  style. 
Here are a few style do’s, I hope they help you as much as they have helped me.
Urban Dictionary defines Style:   Noun:  The  basic  defining characteristics of a  person, everything from talk,  dress,  hairstyle, demeanor, etc.  A  majority of the time it is the  person’s  appearance in general and can be  categorized (grunge, hippie,  preppy,  hoochie, nerdy, etc). A few people  have their own style which  usually  makes them unique while most go with  whatever is the “in”  thing at the  time in all the above categories.
Each and every one of us possesses a unique style which makes us   different from the next person.  Style is a way to express yourself, how   you are feeling and what makes you, you!
The difficult part of figuring out your own personal style is because   there are so many different options out there.  We are inundated with   photo’s of celebrities who have a style that many of us can not  afford.   Pictures of rail thin models wearing designer clothes that  most of us  can not afford. 
This blog is not my opinion of other people’s style.  It will not   serve as your fashion trend guide but hopefully it will help you figure   out your own syle, and if i can help even one person then I have   accomplished my goal!
When determining ones own style here are a few things to keep in mind.
1)  First Impression:  Use your 5 senses:  Touch, taste, smell, sight, sound!  When I wake up in the morning and I am getting dressed I look within to   determine how I feel.  I always make sure that I am comfortable in  what  I am wearing.  If it is a work day I go through my day in my mind,  the  people I will be seeing, where I will be going etc… Then I think  how do I  want to be perceived?  Do I want to come across as  intelligent, funny,  down to earth?  Maybe you have a high profile job  and you have to speak  to a room full of people.  Or maybe you are  sitting at a desk all day,  no matter who you are or what you do your  personal style is the first  thing that people notice when they first  see you and that first second  is the most important when it comes to  sizing up a person.  So you do  always want to look your best. 
Think about what you want to accomplish during the day and then just   dress the part.  And remember this, you never know who you will meet   during any given moment so you should always try and look and feel your   best… This brings me to my second point:
2) The skin your in:  Use your personality:    The person you are vs the person you want to be:  I see a lot of  people  wearing jackets and sweatshirts with their favorite teams on  them  around the city and even to work.  This is fine if you are either a   professional athlete or coach or you are in High school or college.    However if you are wearing a Patriots Jacket to your job in an office   you are shooting yourself in the foot!  Yes the person you are may love   sports but if you work in a professional office you should dress   professionally and not bring your favorite team to work with you.  In   other words, do you want a raise?  Do you want a promotion??  Start   dressing the part!!! 
Here is an example:  It’s Friday and jeans day at your office.  You  are on the train heading to work.  You are wearing jeans, a nice shirt  underneath a Patriots Jacket and sneakers. (If you are a girl, you are  wearing flats with jeans, and a jacket.) You get off the train and bump  into the CEO of the company dressed in a sharp looking suit.  The CEO  recognizes you and you start talking.  The conversation goes well and  you walk to work together.
It’s Friday and jeans day at your office.  You are on the train  heading to work.  You are dressed in a sharp looking suit with a long  black jacket.  (If you are a girl you are wearing a sharp looking suit  with heels  and a nice long jacket)  You get off the train and bump into  the CEO of your company dressed in a sharp looking suit.  The CEO  recognizes you and you start talking.  The conversation goes well and  you walk to work together, once you arrive at work the CEO mentions that  they are having a casual dinner party that evening and would love for  you to stop by. 
The reason that the CEO asks you to the party isn’t because of  anything you did differently but because of the way you presented  yourself.  The CEO looked at you at not another employee but as an equal  and therefor felt comfortable inviting you to the dinner party.  We as  humans identify with those people most like ourselves.

A Poke at Kim’s Divorce

There are just some things I cant quite grasp.  The Facebook poke along with Kim’s recent divorce are two of them.  Whats the point of the poke really?  In real life I cant think of anyone who likes to be poked yet it’s accepted on Facebook.  In fact if I log in and am now not poked I wonder why. 

And as for Kim Kardashian I always thought that she was actually settling by marrying that guy, I mean ok if you are going to settle I guess he would be a good choice to settle for but before The Kardashians he was really a nobody.  AND he didn’t even seem to love her, didnt he propose with rose petals after she said she hated roses? but that’s not the point.  Why would she put herself through a marriage to someone she didnt love to begin with.  If it is just for the money that just seems really sad.  It may make headlines but c’mon E! Entertainment.  Is this really what were teaching our youth?  And that is all the time I have to devote to that.
