Life circumstances and fashion don't always coincide. Case in point, 5 weeks ago i fractured a bone in my foot and after weeks on crutches, weeks limping with a boot and a new appreciation for everyday walking, I am able to see the silver lining of my injury.
What good came out of this? The realization that fashion can hide many flaws, the chance for me to recreate the famous Angelina Jolie high slit Oscar dress look and the time off recuperating gave me an opportunity to work on The Columbus Style Session coming up.
Not only did this dress give me a high split that I fell in love with, it also hid the ugly orthopedic boot I had on my left foot. I strategically & stylishly chose this floor length dress to ensure that I could get a super chic look without the dreaded boot ruining my outfit. I love this look so much I've linked a whole collection for you. If you're in love with this dress as much as I am, click HERE to shop a few.
As a result of my injury, I was stuck inside for a couple weeks which gave me some good thinking, planning and brainstorming time to work on my first live event The Columbus Style Session.
This injury had me pretty much home bound for a few weeks & nearly drove me crazy but the one good thing it did was help me prepare for my upcoming Style Workshop. I'm so excited about all that I have planned for September 17th. Fashion talk, Style learning, Networking, Fun Interaction, Question and Answer session & a Swag Bag giveaway! I've been preparing for this workshop for a few months & I can't wait to give fashion and style tips about how to flatter your figure live & in person. I'm selling tickets HERE and I'm looking forward to offering my styling services at a fraction of the price for you all.
Through this whole ordeal I've learned that every once in a while life hands you lemons and instead of concentrating on all the negatives, it's best to throw on a high slit dress, prepare for your dreams and make lemonade.
