Minimalist Dressing – where do you stand on this issue?
Over the past three months, I have been honing my ideas about where I want my business and my future to go. And where I can best serve my current and future clients. Minimalist Dressing is to me the future of dressing for women over 50 who want to look good, dress easily and have a bigger and bolder influence in the world around them.
The words I wished to write to express where I am headed were playing hide and seek with me. Nothing even started to flow.
So for today, I am pointing you back to three articles that have been, and still are, indicators to why I believe that Minimalist Dressing is the way of the future. Read the excerpts and follow the links to the full Blog Post articles to see if you are coming on the journey with me.
Article 1: Clothing Obesity … the Hidden Epidemic (21 May 2015)
Minimalist Dressing is a ‘Lifestyle Plan’. A Clothing Lifestyle Plan is about changing habits for the rest of your life. You change both emotional habits and practical habits. De-cluttering gets rid of items but unless you learn new dressing habits, you will just refill your clothing spaces with items similar to those you threw out.
The Big Question
Do you have clothing obesity in your wardrobe and other spaces? What if you learnt to live with less clothes, shoes, handbags, scarves and jewellery? What if your work wardrobe, your casual wardrobe, your travel wardrobe and your formal wardrobe contained only clothes you loved and wore regularly?
How would you feel?

Article 3: The Four Emotional Stages of Dressing (30 April 2015)
Dressing is a basic act of life but it is not simple. Dressing is both a physical and an emotional act. We choose each piece based on emotions and justify our choices to both ourselves and others with rational reasons. (Men do it too.)
Dressing to be yourself allows you to have a clothing wardrobe that is the perfect size for you. If you can’t recognise who you really are, you need the unbiased and gentle help of an expert to show you how to blossom into your true self.
We all have the potential to do great things. And it’s taking care of the little things that frees up your mind to tackle what your heart and intuition want you to truly concentrate on.
Article 3: Are You Stuck in a Dressing Time Warp? (12 November 2015)
As your dressing changed from toddler to primary school, to high school, to work, to at-home mum (for some of us) and for many of us now – a change in job or priorities, your dressing style evolved. At each of these stages you kept some principles of your past and added new ideas to it. You let go of some of your fixed ideas to embrace a slightly different version of yourself.
I don’t want to go backwards. Do you?
All the anti-aging products in the world won’t help you look 20 years younger if your wardrobe or closet is in a rut.
Are you happy with your wardrobe/closet? Or can you do better?
The words I am seeking will come to me. I’ll find their hiding place because I will send out an Article next week how I interpret Minimalist Dressing for the modern baby boomer woman.
