What do Sue, DVF and a vintage poster have in common?

When I first found this dress while shopping consignment in Sydney, Australia, OZ as they call it, I knew right away that this wrap dress was a knock off of the infamous DFV wrap dress, Diane Von Furstenberg, of course. Fashion Icon and fabulous female entrepreneur.

The dress fit me like a glove – the wrap dress is suited for most body types. I loved it and felt great in it. When I moved from Oz to SF, San Francisco, I went consignment shopping. Lo and behold, I found the same DVF knock off, same color, same wrap, same size. I bought it. I cut the SF dress to be more like a shirt so I could have the versatility from this dress I love. Recently I saw this image of DVF and I had to compare it to my ‘selfie’ wearing my knock off and Boom! There it is, me, side by side with DVF! Then I noticed this image on the wallpaper in my bathroom, of a woman wearing the same dress pattern, though not a wrap dress, I thought it may have been an inspiration for Miss DVF. Yes, my bathroom is wallpapered with Pre-War Shanghai posters showcasing “the modern woman” – quite appropriate for me…So I took a photo of this poster and added it to make my triptych.

What’s your Passion?

Someone asked me recently what my passion is regarding Style Rehab.
I wanted to share with you what my immediate response was.
“I’m most passionate in my professional life, of helping to guide my clients through transformation. When I see their reaction to seeing themselves in the mirror, the joy, the confidence, the new found self expression, is a gift to me. This fills my heart every time.
This shows me I am doing my service and it is being well received.
This is the impact I want to have on people. To help them reveal their true selves.
For people to express themselves in a way that allows them freedom. Allows them to best represent who they want to be, their best selves.”
