Style Clue 3: Invest in quality not quantity. Because quality will give your wardrobe a visual upgrade. Plus your pieces will last longer. On top of that quantity is not a guarantee to have more options. If you don’t get the right pieces for you, your style, lifestyle, body type and the occasions you have ahead you might find yourself in that wardrobe dilemma: a lot of clothes and nothing to wear.
That whole quote above is sooo true. And it speaks right to my heart. Cause as an undecided person I know this so well. Every time I was in a crossroad of decisions to make and I got frozen, unable to decide which way to go, which one to pick, I felt just like that: wasting life time. My lifetime. It feels like denying yourself the git of living. And I am not exaggerating. Because when you don’t decide, you stay there, wherever you are, stuck, doing nothing, living nothing, only watching your life passing you by.
So anytime you get stuck in a decision, not knowing which way to pick after a lot of thinking and intuition talks, just pick something and go. Just don’t stay still, undecided, watching time and life goes by.
Cause either way will be way better than just staying there, still, frozen, doing nothing, living nothing, only watching your life passing you by.
Trust me on that. 😘
Since 2015, thanks to the UN, Yoga has its international day: June 21st. And of course I celebrated it with tones of Yoga. Like 3 hours of Yoga, Mantras and Meditations. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to practice Yoga for 3 hours in a row. Or every day. Or any day. It keeps me in shape, sane, spiritual, flexible, inspired, rocking. It puts in in touch with me, myself and I. And the joy of it.
Because of it and much more, man, I love Yoga. And I am so grateful for it.🙏
And this is coming from a person who up to a few years ago thought Yoga wasn’t her thing.
So thank Goddess I gave Yoga a second chance.
I don’t even remember why I did, just felt myself willing to try Yoga again. And so I did. First with a very light kind: Restorative Yoga. It blowed my mind away. Cause it was so relaxing, calming experience that even helped me to sleep better. So I kept doing it.
Restorative Yoga made me rethink my whole idea of Yoga. So, because of it I decided to give it a try to other types of Yoga like Hatha, another kind I love. To be honest I only practice Hatha every now and then but it is one type of Yoga I wanna practice more. And I will.
I also tried Kundalini. My first go wasn’t very successful. I just didn’t like it. So I passed for a little while til I gave a second chance to it and guess what? I loooooved it. And this has been my Yoga. I practice it every single day now. By myself. And everytime I have a chance I go and practice in a class. Both experiences are great. Each one on its own. Totally recommend both.
Kundalini in particular brought to my life two important things: joy and a spiritual sense or experience. It has been, indeed, a journey of my self, to my self, through my self.
And so much healing came from and with it…
And again, I am so grateful for this journey, with its ups and downs, goodies, baddies and uglies. Imperfectly perfect. Just the way it is.🙏🌸
And if you were like me and thought Yoga wasn’t your thing, just give another shot. Just like me, you can change your mind. And you can only gain from it.😘

I am kind of bias to say that cause I looooove dresses. They are like a second skin to me. They are easy to wear, put me at ease wearing them… they are comfy, fun, feminine, stylish, flirty… And sexy. It all depends on the dress mood. They can show my curves, only suggest them or completely hide them without making me look frumpy.
They are no-brainer pieces that can be a whole look just like that. You don’t need to mix and match them with another piece.
Unless you want to add another piece or two to your look, like a cardigan or a coat (and even pants). But other than that, when you pick your dress all you have to do is to figure out which shoes to pair and in which bag to bet. Maybe pick a scarf, jewelry, sunnies or a hat to add some thing extra to your look.
The thing is, with this one piece you can go wherever you need to. Ready. Put together. At ease.
Some people might not even consider a dress because it doesn’t give much room to sport a whole different look every time you wear it since it is that one pre-set piece, a one note kind of style.
But if it is a dress that suits you, your body, the occasion you are heading to, makes you feel comfy and your best version, why do you need to vary that?
Plus, wearing a dress can be one of the elements of your TradeMark Style, that will keep you very much you for you and everyone else.
And yes, you can always pick different accessories, add different pieces or a detail to it, wear a different hairstyle to vary the look. If you want to.
In any case, and because all of that, whenever in doubt, wear a dress.
Of course, it is a good idea to have a basic dress wardrobe to suit different occasions. And even have a dress (or two) that can go from day to night and everything in between.
But you don’t have to have way too many. Just a few for day, a few for night and a few for day to night.
And make sure you have the right set of accessories like bags and shoes to take you anywhere you need to go with them.
Having said all that, of course I know there are some ladies who don’t fancy a dress. And that is totally okay. You don’t have to. This is a suggestion for those who, like me, like to wear a dress.
In another words, this post was my little ode to this piece I love and has kept me stylish even when I completely lost my passion for fashion and my mojo to dress up (or down). And yes, that is a true story. Up to this day I rely on them to keep me going. At ease. Feeling good under my two skins. Looking good and put together. Even when I dress up or down in the automatic pilot.
