Sarah Jessica Parker Looking Beautiful and Fashionable. But What is She Saying About Herself?

High Fashion vs. Your Personal Style

Fashion icons and trend setters like Sarah Jessica Parker influence fashion trends with outfits and accessories that use color and style to create big effects.

Using the interplay of their clothing and accessories fashion trendsetters are able to tell a story about themselves while dictating what is considered up to date in the fashion world.

You don’t have to be at the center of the fashion world.  You just need a style that looks fashionable for you and what you do.      You need a personal style.

Mrs. Parker has got her look, but how do you figure out yours? How do you reach your successful image? And how does wearing your successful image boost your self-confidence?

“Image, Success and Self-Confidence,” an Event!

The Association of Women in Communication of Santa Barbara is offering a team presentation at Antioch University of Santa Barbara called “Image, Success and Self Confidence.” Valerie Burns, image consultant and Calla Gold, jewelry consultant and designer will share fashion and accessorizing tips and guidelines to help you tell your story and portray your unique and successful look through your personal style.

A Little Bit About Your Image

For your own success you need to either look like who you really are or who you want to be.

If you are unemployed and want to work, you’ll dress for success.

If you are an artist, you’ll dress with more color and creativity and you’ll find you’ll attract people who love art.

If you want to highlight a personality trait or a physical plus point, your clothing and jewelry are your tools. At this event we’ll talk to you about how to maximize your image impact for success.

How Not to Portray Yourself

Would You Want her Defending You in Court?

Only on TV would you see a fully tattooed and pierced attorney defending a store owner to a rapt jury. In real life that same attorney would show no tattoos or piercings and be wearing a suit.

In order to be taken seriously by that jury you’d need to look like what they believe an attorney should look like, but it’s still possible to have elements of your personal style.
