Fab7 Concept #1:  Dress with Intent

This week we will begin breaking down the nitty gritty of The Fab7. Over the next few months each BlogInjection post will be dedicated to one component. This week is where it all starts:

Dress with Intent

Deep cleansing breath and …. Go!

Dress with Intent means that you put care and effort into getting dressed and expressing your best self that day.  Think of it as the same as getting a massage or brushing your teeth.  You do these things for yourself but in turn they also have a positive impact on those around you.  You are more relaxed when you get  massage and you don’t have stinky breath and rotted teeth when you brush your teeth. When you Dress With Intent you are intentionally trying to create a positive force in the world simply by getting dressed.  In some small way you are caring for the world.  YES!! (add fist pump here)

I know it sounds a little woo woo.   It doesn’t mean dressing to gain a positive reaction from someone else—we don’t have control over what other people think.   But if I can walk out the door knowing that I have put the effort in to expressing my best self today, it’s a really good start. If I’m feeling good, there is a better chance that those around me will react in a positive way.

I mention this a lot when I am working with clients:  The idea that getting dressed in the morning before you face the world should be the highlight of your morning routine.  This is the moment that you get to choose who you are that day!   As with so many things it starts with an idea—once you have clarity on that idea everything else falls into place. 

Many people come to me wanting to know how to get that clarity in their closet. They have amazing clothes that feel right when they leave the store but somehow it doesn’t translate to their real lives. Why not?  No clarity.  Having clarity on how you want to look is just as important as the clothes themselves.  Enter a little thing I call

Your Wardrobe ID

Your wardrobe ID is the starting block for any outfit.  Here comes the woo woo again:  It is the combination of ideas that you want to express at a certain moment with your clothes.

 How do you want to feel? For example:  if I were going on a job interview to, say, a law office, my wardrobe ID would be something like fierce, in control, and Robin Wright in House of Cards.  Then I would go to my closet and choose pieces that made me feel that way.  Here’s a good formula to start:

1 feeling + 1 character= Your Wardrobe ID

Choosing a feeling will help you get clear, choosing a character will give you a visual reference to build the outfit. I’d like to take a moment thank all the amazing costume designers for giving us wonderful tools to express our best selves!  

Try this over the next week.  Have some fun! Go to the FabInjection Facebook Page and tell me what you came up with!  Click here to download the simple FabInjection Wardrobe ID Sheet.  If you need a place to start, here are 3 of my favorite ladies that always inspire me!

You are the main character in the movie of your life—you might as well look incredible.

I am giving another workshop this Sunday!  It will be based on the Dress With Intent Module.  We will explore our intentions behind getting dressed, make some Wardrobe ID boards and get in depth with how to use your Wardrobe ID in your life!  I hope you can make it.
