I’m Candi Randolph, a Midlife Blogger at InspireMyStyle.com and coffee lover (thought you'd want to know that :) I have a passion for encouraging, inspiring, and motivating women in midlife to be the very best they can be. That includes many facets of life, including confidence with fashion.
Be assured, I am not a fashionista. Nor am I a fashion blogger. Actually, you don’t want me to be a fashion blogger. Why? Well, I will say, respectfully, that many times a fashion blogger will show you a slew of photos of themselves wearing one particular outfit, encouraging you to buy that particular outfit.
That’s nice, but you know what? That outfit might be the worst possible choice for you.
I don’t want you to do that. And, The Fashion Cure is not about fashion per se. Nope. It’s about YOU discovering all of the facets that make you who you are, including your signature style. You really have one, whether you know it or not.
You’ll learn, step by step, how to recognize, verbalize, then live, your signature style, every day. Does that mean you'll get all dressed up every single day? Well, no, not unless that's your particular style statement. But, you WILL know and understand why you choose to dress the way you dress, and how that fits in with your authentic signature style.
How did I do this? Where did these ‘steps’ come from?
Well, I've lived for 64 years now and have learned how to embrace who I am, flaws and all, and live my best life, every day.
It's not all roses and lollipops by any means, but I know that taking care of my body, inside and out, taking the time to work out, eat well, listen to what my body is telling me...all of these actions help me to live every day as...me. The best version of me that I can be.
I've also learned that I am happiest and most confident when I wear my hair (I just went from auburn hair color out of a box to my natural gray, and I love it!), makeup, clothes, accessories, the entire package, in a way that expresses me.
Not anyone else. Just me.
Sounds so simple, right? But sometimes it's not.
We have little voices inside our head telling us how we should look, that we're not young anymore, why bother when our body is shape-shifting before our eyes...you know, all that negative talk that can really drag us down.
I work hard, every day, to silence those voices and love myself, as I am.
This is what I want to share with you, particularly from the standpoint of fashion confidence. Because when we feel good, inside and out, it shows. And it makes such a difference inside of us.
Some of these principles will be familiar to you, as they are widely accepted methods of learning about our bodies, our skin tones, our shape and our preferences.
I have taken these principles and combined them with my life experience, background as an Interior Decorator and Home Stager, business owner and entrepreneur, and created a system that will give you exactly what you need to become more confident in your own personal, authentic style.
The Fashion Cure is easy to navigate, with a combination of video lessons and reading material. I'll ask you to complete some simple activities, too, so that your ability to apply what you learn to your own life will be most effective. And, it's fun.
