Who Gets the Compliments – You? Or Your Clothes?
Think back on the last few compliments you received on your appearance.
Chances are, there’s a difference between the compliments you get and the compliments you actually want.
The Compliments You Get:
Has anyone ever given you compliments like this?
“I love your jacket.”
“That is a great purse you have!”
“Your shoes are so cute.”
“Where did you get your shirt? It’s fabulous.”
Start noticing what people focus on when they give you compliments. Do they notice you? Or just focus on your clothes?
Is it possible that your clothes stand out more than you do? Consider the possibility that in the past when someone complimented you on your jacket, they saw your jacket, but not you!
Why do your clothes take center stage?
Because that’s the place they take in the fashion and beauty world.
Every season, the fashion and beauty industry introduces new trends and styles. And no matter who you are or what you look like, you’re expected to wear them if you want to be fashionable.
Some women focus on the trends. Other women get overwhelmed by them and give up. But either way, women are focusing on something other than their own, unique beauty when they get dressed in the morning. It’s not surprising that other people don’t focus on it either!
The Compliments You Want:
When was the last time you received compliments like this…
“You look amazing.”
“What have you done to yourself? You’ve never looked so good!”
“Wow, you look so alive and vibrant.”
“You look so beautiful.”
“You are hot!”
If you have not been hearing compliments like this, don’t blame yourself! You deserve to hear them. Every woman does.
Why you should come first, and your clothes second
In all the years I’ve worked with women, I’ve found that every woman wants to not only feel beautiful, but also look beautiful—not superficially beautiful and not even supermodel beautiful. Every woman just wants to look and feel naturally beautiful.
You know you’ve really brought out your natural beauty when you start getting compliments that focus on you instead of your clothes.
Learning how to use your clothes, accessories, hair and makeup as supports (not competitors) to your true beauty is the key to you being noticed and complimented, rather than what you are wearing. How do you do that?
Take Back Your Beauty (and Your Compliments!)
The fashion industry has not done a very good job of teaching the everyday woman how to bring her true beauty to life. It teaches a one-style-looks-good-on-every-woman approach. And when in-style clothes don’t look or feel good on you, you blame yourself!
Together, we women spend billions of dollars a year on clothes and accessories that receive compliments while these same items may be hiding our true beauty. But every woman deserves to be beautiful, effortlessly and affordably.
That’s where Dressing Your Truth comes in. It’s a supportive, easy-to-use fashion makeover system that reveals how beautiful you truly are and teaches you which clothes, jewelry, makeup, and hairstyles will honor and support your natural beauty—not cover it up.
Start receiving compliments that speak to you as a woman and not to the jacket you’re wearing. Take my 3-Minute Beauty Confidence Quiz to discover how.
