Yesterday, I attended a bloggers day hosted by Lucky Magazine. I sat in front of big shots of the fashion world and instead of listening intently, I had an internal meltdown complete with a “this is a big, big world and I’m a small, small fish” panic. Why was I even there? I’m no fashionista. I felt intimidated and I momentarily let it get the best of me.
Then Rachel Zoe entered the room looking fabulous and emanating fearless energy (and a to-die-for necklace from her new line)…
When asked how she has the confidence to do all she does, she said it’s important to feel comfortable in your work, but it shouldn’t be easy. If it’s easy, you’ll start to slip. If you can do something with your eyes closed, it’s time to move on. I was suddenly inspired to find my balance (though I’m more striving for the “being comfortable” zone).
I quickly headed home for an outfit change and attended an awesome Fashion Week kick-off dinner hosted by American Express for the Glam Network. I wore a fun dress and shoes, and when I walked into a room full of accomplished writers, photographers, and bloggers I finally felt like I had some of my own fearless energy emanating.
