Hey there! My name is Brianna and I live with my adorable husband and our two miniature dachshunds in White Rock, BC. I have a bachelors degree in psychology from TWU, and I change women’s lives with clothes. For real. I work with women who who have or are going through big life changes (marriage, divorce, the death of a loved one, new moms, infertility, new job, adoption, menopause, major illnesses…pretty much anything that is life-changing, either positive or negative) to step into who they are as women through wardrobe management. You may be asking yourself if I’m being serious, and if so, how the heck does this work? Well, we know that clothes affect our psyche in a myriad of ways through psychological study: what you wear affects your mood, your concentration, and the way you interact with others. When we dress mindfully, we set the stage to behave mindfully in our lives, and naturally attract to us the people and situations we desire, thereby improving our own attitudes about who we are as women. Simply put: When you dress as the woman you want to be, you become her. My job is to assess where you are in life compared to where you want to be, and then design a wardrobe just for you that speaks to your passions, beliefs and values. I have the best job in the world!!!
The style bug bit me early in life, even though we didn’t have a lot of money growing up. I’m the oldest of four children, and I helped out a lot at home since my Mom returned to university when I was ten years old. She is my inspiration, but my style is definitely my own. She did however, show me all kinds of black and white movies, and my favourites were Sabrina, Charade, and Roman Holiday because of Audrey Hepburn’s seemingly effortless style and grace. The scene in Sabrina where (spoiler alert!) Humphrey Bogart tells her he has tricked her, she doesn’t scream or cry or make a scene; she musters up all her dignity and responds to him with grace. Ever since I saw that as a kid, and my Mom pointed out her amazing composure and restraint in the face of humiliation and heartbreak, I have wondered to myself from time to time “what would Audrey do?”. For me, Audrey epitomizes more than great fashion: she is the embodiment of grace and class. And with those attributes, you can wear anything and make it look amazing!
I believe that clothing and style have the potential to change a person from the inside out and if you do too, follow me on this blog! I always love to hear from you, so don’t be afraid to leave a comment or twenty! haha 🙂
