I adore stylish women, don’t you? I love to see how they put themselves together, the accessories they use and always pick up creative tips to try. Lisa Bayne, the CEO Artful Home invited Brenda Kinsel, Cindy Hattersley and I to join her for lunch at Cafe Claude, in San Francisco yesterday. Three stylish women I was excited to see.
The temperature was hovering close to 100° at my house. I knew I would be a hot, wrinkled mess by the time I met them so I changed my clothes at least three times before settling on something simple and easy… that I’d actually had on first.
I knew these gals would look amazing and wanted to step my outfit up from ordinary so chose jeans and shoes with unique details. Then I added a leopard belt, fabulous tote, and favorite broach.
Lisa hired me to be a brand ambassador for Artful Home several years ago. I’m proud and honored to represent the company and the artists they support! I hadn’t met Cindy and so was very anxious to connect with her. Brenda and I have met before. In fact, Brenda is the reason I became an Image Consultant!jeans (on sale) | shoes | tote bag
Back in the day…when I was managing women’s boutiques, reading everything I could get my hands on about fashion, I read one of Brenda’s books. When I read her bio, which mentioned she was an Image Consultant, a lightbulb went off in my head. People actually make a career out of this? That’s what I want to do! I contacted the Association of Image Consultants International and found an Image Master to get trained and certified.
I subsequently met Brenda at the AICI convention and loved her instantly. She’s warm, friendly, authentic and incredibly stylish. Brenda is not only a rockstar among Image Consultants she’s also a fabulous woman!
Over lunch, the four of us discussed fashion, style, and the importance of women connecting with women. We talked about what sort of clothes women over 50 really want to wear, what type of clothes build their confidence and the clothes that help get them there.
The time flew past and I hated our time together to end. I came away jazzed to try new looks and experiment with different proportions. Thank you for such a delightful time ladies!
Do you draw inspiration for other women?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
