How to Dress for Confidence


Real confidence is about embracing your best features and working with them. What you wear can make a positive or negative first impression.  Your style always sends a message to those around you and it’s an effective communication tool.   Style is more than just clothes, it’s a persons own unique preference in color, fabric and design.  Your personal style also tells a story.

Fashion is an expression of art that changes with the seasons.  

Here are a few things to consider when getting dress:

1. Color – You must find the colors that work best for you. It is important to know the colors that work well with your hair and complexion.  And, consider this: all colors have meaning (for example) red, black and white – represents power

Green = Success and Abundance

Yellow = Happy

Red = Passion, Courage and Power

Orange = Enthusiasm, excitement

Pink = love, sensitivity

Blue = Peace and trust

Violet = Self Awareness, Spirituality

Brown and Earth Tones = Stability

Black = Sophisticated

White =  Purity, goodness

If you dress in a way that flatters your unique shape, not only will you feel comfortable but this will also help to give you more confidence.  

1.  Identify your body shape:  

The Straight Body –  This means that your body measurements are the same up and down and your waistline is not easily defined.  Many supermodels have this type of body. You should wear bright colors, fabrics with different cuts and textures, choose tops that gather at the waist.  Tops that flow with draping in the sleeve and body along with a wide banded waist, create the look of an hour glass shape.

The Pear Shape – If your bust is smaller than your hips, then you have the shape of a pear.  It is best to wear bold patterns and bright colors.  Your best assest is your waist therefore you should wear tops that are fitted at the waist.  Off the shoulder tops give you a great look.  Slacks that are dark colored as well as boot cut and trouser jeans in dark washed denim also compliment your shape, just avoid those back pockets. 

The Apple Shape – If your hips are smaller than your shoulders, and above the waist is heavy, then you have an apple shape.  You should wear textured and soft fabrics.  Dark colors are very good at hiding the heaviness in the middle section of your body.  Wearing V-Necks and scoop necklines are good,  this draws attention to your great bust and not your midsection.   Wear dresses that expand at the waist and flow from under the bust line.  Avoid clothes that fit too tight, boxy. 

The Hourglass Shape –  Your body is well balanced and proportioned.  Clothes that compliment this frame usually hug your curves.  Wrap tops, Wrap dresses, Avoid heavy fabrics and choose the delicate fabrics such as chiffon, silkblends and soft knits.  Tailored items are excellent choices to wear.

2. Your personal style is important:    Why?  Because people tend to form an opinion within minutes of seeing you.  Your style gives the world a glimpse of who you are and it tells a great deal about your personality.   Style evolves as you become more self-assured.  Style is always fresh.  The clothes you wear represent an expression of your spirit and character.  Your calling card is your style.  

3. What’s the occasion? Are you going to the mall, the grocery store or is it a company party or event? Whatever the occasion, your personal style is a reflection of you and it needs to shine.  You may just inspire someone with the way you dress.

4. Accessorize It – Here is where you can get real creative and make an old outfit standout.   An outfit can be worn over and over again with the right accessories.  And, by accessorizing and old outfit, you actually save money.  When a woman accessorizes, she expresses herself personally.  Accessories include earrings, necklaces, belts, scarfs etc.

5.  How are you feeling today?  That is a very important question we should ask ourselves before choosing an outfit for the day. Do you want to feel glamorous, powerful, comfortable laid back or do you want to feel sexy.  Or is it all of the these things?; then dress the part.

6. Cosmetics –  Choosing the right makeup is essential in completing your look.  There is nothing worst, than having on a glamourous outfit and then the make up overshadows the outfit.   Makeup should enchance, not alter your beauty.  Knowing your skin type will help you to choose a foundation that is right for you.  You can also go to a department store and experiment with the different colors of lipstick and eyeshadow.  And if you are in need of makeup lessons, youtube has thousands of tutorials to help you.

7.  Perfume –   Your mood will be enhanced by wearing your favorite fragrance.  Perfumes are aromatic and can help you to relax and feel pretty.  Perfumes will help to boost your confidence as well.

Never give up on yourself because you are beautiful inside and out.

Created Just For You

This website was created Just For You. We at Beautiful and Fiercely Alluring want to give you the encouragement you need to move forward in your life. We want you to exceed beyond your wildest expectation.

So many times women don’t have anyone to give them that extra push. Because of this, women become stagnant. Our goal here is to get you to move forward even if it means taking baby steps. This website is also designed to help you understand your inner and outer beauty, as well as your limitless earning potential. Your dreams will become a reality if you start focusing on you.

First things, first. Get rid of those:

Negative influences

All changes begin with getting rid of those negative influences in your life. Take a moment to think, what is the most negative influence in your life? Whatever or whoever it is, there is simply no room for it in your life. We should choose carefully the people and things we allow to come into our lives.

And peer pressure is so subtle, sometimes we don’t see it coming. Surround yourself with positive people who share your same views and values. Look closely at the people in your circle. After you have gotten rid of the negative, then focus on the positive daily. Once you do, then you will begin to feel better. Your happiness is a top priority and crucial to your success.

Your life will change when you change your ways.

The next step in modifying your life is to not try to do everything at once. Patience plays a key role in helping you with these unique transformations.

Choose a habit of yours that has the most negative influence on your life and start with that one first. Make a list of your habits. Write down your goals. Then, write the date you started to make those changes and the date you achieved your goals. Keeping notes will help you to be better organized as you move forward. It is a good idea to have support of a relative or friend. But if you have no one, a good thing to do is quiet your spirit by meditating. Revisit the reasons why you want to change in the first place, then go deep within to find the strength. Repeat daily this phrase, yes I can, yes I can and I will.

Be Fearless

Admitting that you have fear is the other step to gaining control of your life. Once you allow yourself to make mistakes and go through that pain, you will get rid of the fear that has held you back so many years. In order for you to develop, you need to go that extra mile. Motivational and inspirational quotes and books can help you as well. Allow yourself to learn and grow. Fear can either harm you or motivate you depending on the circumstances. A person grows when they conquer their fears.

Remember the saying “no pain, no gain”. Don’t be afraid to speak to a positive influencer, whether a good friend, relative or a counselor about your fears. Chances are, you will find out you are not alone and that dozens of people may the have same problem.

Pamper Yourself Daily

Start by creating some “me” time. This will help to reduce the stress in your life and it will recharge your batteries. Giving oneself a facial along with a spa bath from time to time can help eliminate the stresses of the day to day grind. Make your health your top priority. You are most effective when you are healthy. Exercise and eating right will keep you healthy. Here are some ways you can pamper yourself:

  • Jumpstart your week by going to a spa on a Monday
  • Watch your favorite movie in the middle of the week
  • Listen to your favorite music while cooking your favorite food
  • Meditate daily
  • Sip on your favorite beverage while outdoors
  • Sleep a few extra hours
  • Soak in a tub surrounded by candles
  • Chill out at the park with gourmet treats that you love

Mindset of an Entrepreneur

Start developing a frame of mind such as that of an entrepreneur by allowing your visions to stay in front of you daily. It is very important to set aside some time to focus on your goals. Once you start achieving results, this will motivate you to push forward.

An entrepreneurial mindset is developed by the desire and determination you have to improve your current financial situation. No matter what obstacles you incur, try to stay focused. It’s about trying and trying again until you make your breakthrough. Go ahead and read about entrepreneurs and their struggles and how they rose above those struggles in order to be successful. People who are well-informed are the people you should acquaint yourself with. If you have a passion for something, chances are you will do well at making that into a successful business.

Do not limit your thinking, embrace the fact that anything is possible. It is important to recognize that as your business grows so should your help. Focus on what you will have and not what you don’t have. You must step outside of your comfort zone in order to be comfortable. Don’t take things personally when you experience a failure. Keep moving forward and find a solution. Taking risks and being persistent are attributes that will pay off in time.

And never dismiss those introductions. When you are introduced to someone, keep a mental note or a business card. This could lead to windows of opportunity opening up for you. Why is reading important? Reading keeps you informed and up to date. An entrepreneur always reads and the benefits of that is to avoid costly mistakes.

In conclusion, the products and services we offer will help you to make important decisions. Now is the time to get a taste of success and discover the magic of you!

Best Wishes!



Living Your Dreams

You have the power to change and that power lies within you.


Become Your Own Mentor

Sometimes we lack the confidence to do what is necessary to make our lives better because we fear the unknown. We rely on others’ approval instead of giving that power to ourselves. In order to create the life that you always wanted, it all begins with taking out the trash. By that I mean getting rid of all the negative energy in your life. Start each day with meditation and then create a to do list, this will help you to stay focused.

Weight Loss Naturally

So many people struggle with their weight. Some people eat out of depression and eating in excess is the only way some people can feel good; I am here to help you with that. You simply have to change the foods that you eat.

I was plagued by IBS, irritable bowel syndrome and a lack of energy for years. I researched foods that would help me with both problems. I soon realized these foods are the same.

When I started eating these foods, an amazing thing happened, I lost weight.

Eating cleaner foods instead of junk foods changes your energy levels. And soon, you will see a difference not only in your weight but your skin as well.

All Natural Beauty Secrets

The basic essentials for healthy, glowing younger looking skin can be found in nature. Products that come from nature, aren’t synthetic, they are 100% pure. Beauty products with synthetic chemicals can strip your skin of its moisture.

If you start using all natural products and natural cosmetics, you will see a major difference in your skin.

For years, I was washing my face with soap. Then one day I was in the ladies room at a local mall and I noticed a very pretty women washing her face with water. She rinsed her face 30 times and then, she pat her skin dry. I started doing the same thing. I stop using soap and just started washing my face with water and I used the purest of moisturizer.  I can honestly tell you within weeks my appearance went from being the driest of the driest skin to baby soft skin.

Dress For Success

Does what you wear matter? Yes, it sends a message loud and clear. We live in a society where everything is based upon looks. The first thing a person sees about us the way we dress, our style. Dressing well, not only helps you to be received in a warm and friendly manner but, it also boosts your self-confidence. And, dressing well attracts other people to you.

The Road to Financial Freedom

What does Financial Freedom mean to you? Is it owning your dream home, vacationing at the most exotic places imaginable or driving your dream car. In order to get that financial freedom you want, some things have got to change. Mainly your mindset. Albert Einstein said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. You have to reprogram your mind for success and make changes which include sacrifices in order to be successful. And a lot of time we as individuals are paralyzed by fear. Fear inhibits your ability to learn and grow. When your mortgage and your car payments are due and you can’t pay it even with a job, then it’s time for a change.

As you peruse the website, I want you to get inspired about the changes you want to make in your life. Remember, the power to change lies within you.

Best Wishes!
