Did you ever think about the length of the necklace that you wear?
There are some things to take into consideration when you wear a long necklace –
body proportion, height and if you feel self conscious if you have a protruding tummy and
People’s eyes will be drawn down as they look at your necklace if it’s long and it ends at your
tummy area, so be aware of the length of your necklace.
Something else to take into consideration – Is your necklace blending in with your blouse or outfit?
If it is, then your necklace will get lost in the busy print of your clothes.
It’s only obvious that everyone has to wear clothes everyday of their life.
What’s interesting about that is the fact that clothes cost money, it takes time
out of the day to care for and manage, and yet it is one of those things that we
don’t give much thought to.
It seems like it becomes somewhat robotic in our everyday life – thus becoming
one more thing that we have to do, which leads to not caring about what we wear.
I want to share with you the 10 Reasons Why You Should Care About What
1. It shows how you feel about yourself.
2. When you care about what you wear, it shows in the way that you behave.
3. It shows in how you interact with other people.
4. You have the freedom of choice to buy the kinds of clothe that you like to
5. You have the freedom of expression to wear the style of clothes that expresses
how you feel on the inside.
6. Wearing wrinkled clothes will create a nagging thought in your mind about
whether or not someone is going to notice and say something to you about
your wrinkled clothes.
7. Your hard earned dollars are being used to buy your clothes.
8. It takes up your time and energy to wash and take care of your clothes.
9. The clothes you wear can either make you look good or make you look
like you could care less.
10. When you look good, you feel good!
I think #10 is the best reason of all to care about what you wear, It really
should be the #1 reason. Who doesn’t want to look good and feel good?
I can’t even emphasize enough how important it is to care about what you
wear on a daily basis. I have seen all of these 10 things happen to women
for many, many years while sewing for and dressing women of all ages,
nationalities, body types, and with different income levels.
Even with all of the differences that women have in those areas, they still
have the same feelings and desires as the rest of the women around them.
I know that all of these things are true and they do make a big difference
in your everyday life, so I want to encourage you to start to care about what
you wear starting today.
“When you look good, you feel good”
Every woman has secret feelings about how she feels about her body!
Secret feelings don’t just show up one day in your mind and heart, it’s like with anything that you struggle with, It starts when you were a baby.
The one thing that I have always thought was really fascinating is how little
baby girls are so aware of what’s going on around them. If you’ve ever watched
little babies, you’ll understand what I’m talking about. They seem to be so much
older than they really are! I think it’s just amazing how these little spirits that have
come to earth are so much more valiant then ever before.
And for that reason I want to focus on baby girls that become toddlers, pre-
teenagers, teenagers and then women because, those are the stages in a woman’s
life that she becomes more and more aware of how her body looks as she gets older.
If you’re a woman, you should have gone through all of those stages in your life and
are now at a point where you have recognized that you have these secret feelings
about your body!
Secret feelings can be good or bad, and maybe you have both good and bad feelings
about certain parts of your body because maybe, you might like your legs but not
really liking the rest of your body. There’s no end to what women can feel.
Baby girls are always paying attention to what’s going on around them, all the time.
That’s just how girls are created. If you think about it, that kind of awareness is
something that continues on into adulthood. I know it’s definitely a gift from God
given to baby girls, so that when they grow up and become adults and have their
own families they will be able to know what’s happening and can nurture their
With that in mind, it’s safe to say that how girls feel about their body is something
that they learn from the women around them. It’s usually a woman and/or grand-
mother that are/is the one taking care of and raising little girls.
Everything that a baby, toddler, pre-teen & teenage girl hears about her body and
other women’s bodies is taken in and processed in a very unique way deep within
her mind and heart, because everyone is different.
From what I’ve seen and heard over the last 25 years working with women and
having women clients, is that most of what they say about their bodies is usually
negative. There were some that had extremely negative feelings.
Because I’ve sewn for women for such a long time, I thought I’ve heard it all!
But, you know what happens when I have to take my clients body measurements?
They start to reveal their secret feelings about how they feel about their bodies.
I guess you might say that they trust me enough to let me take their body
measurements, so they trust me enough to tell me how they feel…about a
lot of things besides their body.
They’ve heard women in their life say things like – I have a big butt, I’m so fat,
I’m too short, I’m ugly compared to _ _ _ _ _(you fill in the blank), my boobs are
not big enough, I have thunder thighs! Wow! That would scare anyone.
