I have a confession to make, in April I turned 37 and I still don't feel I have any personal style.
I've worked in a clothes shop for 10 years now and help people dress and feel more confident, but I can't do it for myself. I know what clothes I like but they never look or feel right on me, I never really feel like me; this is more a problem in my thinking than in how I actually look.
It's been a problem from my teenage years, having been bullied at school for not having trendy clothes or wearing the right brands, it always weighs on my mind when I choose now; leaving me to pick things I think people would like rather than what I really want. I'm quite good at hiding my style stress but find it's getting worse as I get older, I just want to feel confident for a change.
This weekend I had the joy of attending Blogtacular, a blogging conference in London, and before I went ended up stressing about clothes, image etc... I shouldn't have worried as while there I met the loveliest, bunch of accepting people there ever was. As soon as I entered all my worries eased away.
I'll talk about the whole experience in another post, but I while there I learnt some great advice from some great speakers and business women.
