Friend Friday: The Style/Confidence Relationship

For this week’s Friend Friday* post, we were asked to share our thoughts on the relationship between personal style and confidence. Below are the questions Katy asked, and I responded via video…hope you like! One disclaimer: this is my first “vlog,” so I hope that future videos will be clearer. Call it on-the-job training.

  1. When you wear an outfit that you love how does that change your mental state?
  2. Do you find that the way you dress can help you be more confident in certain situations?
  3. Looking back, have you become more confident in rocking your personal style?
  4. How do comments, in person or on your blog, impact your feelings about a look, clothing choice, etc…
  5. To be more confident, every woman should…

This week we’ve got a great topic to discuss. It was the idea of CarolAnn (http://CharismaU.com/)Β  Basically she was wondering what the relationship is between personal style and confidence – a topic I feel all of us probably have a lot to talk about. I tried to come up with 5 questions that would embody this conversation.

If you’ve got a topic or set of questions you’d like to see covered on Friend Friday shoot me an email.

  1. Morning Sweetie!
    What a fantastic idea doing a Vlog!!! It was good to hear the voice behind ‘V’ for sure. I so know what you mean about ‘discovering/experimenting’ with looks in your early 20’s and finally find what you call your own style…which also applies to the people in life too – finding your own tribe.
    I also think that “To be more confident, every woman should” believe in themselves more!

    1. Aw, thank you! I am glad you enjoyed it and can identify with what I said. You’re right…women SHOULD believe in themselves more.

      Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Thank you CarolAnn! It was fun doing it. Not so fun…the technical aspect of dealing with video conversion. As you can see I finally gave up and just posted the video unedited. Well, now I have something to strive for!

    1. Thank you! I thought it might be nice for others to see who I really am. Hopefully I won’t scare everyone off!

      Thanks for visiting and for your comment. How’s the crocheting going? I can crochet, but I’ve always wanted to learn knitting.

    1. Hello Yiota and Thessy! My favorite devastatingly divine dynamic duo from Down Unda! Thanks for your comment and for stopping by.

  2. Hello. I saved the video for this morning. Nice job. I’m glad you didn’t edit the video. It came across more as a conversation we were having over a glass of bubbles instead of a super-sized production piece. Next week, I would love to see another corner of your house…a stylish woman usually equals a stylish home.

    1. Thank you Beverly…part of the reason that the video was unedited is I got fed up trying to find freeware to convert the file so I could edit it in MS Windows Movie Maker. Also, since shooting, I’ve returned one video camera and bought another, just to make it easier on myself. I would like a little more refinement, but it’s not that big of a deal.

      However, I’m glad you appreciated the reality of it…I’m a real girl, you know? No bottomless bank account, no flying here and there for this and that, no one funding me but me. I am what I am…uncut vid and all.

      Thanks for your comment!

  3. What a great piece. You had me laughing out loud with your mention of comments on some blogs, with the line: “Oh you look great…and their outfit looks like crap.” Thank you for that!
    XO Piper
