I ‘m a big fan of Jennifer L. Scott’s Madame Chic books and I can’t wait to share with you ladies, her latest creation – “Polish Your Poise”.
The values that Mrs. Scott teaches resonate very strongly with my own: such as quality over quantity! You can have a tiny closet of only 10 core items, yet work it like no other, and always look impeccably chic! I also think that poise is such a beautiful and needed quality that unfortunately in today’s world is not appreciated. But you know what? Just because media glorifies vulgarity doesn’t mean that we should embrace it. What Jennifer is preaching about beauty, inner style and poise is so beautiful; and I choose to be a part of this movement instead!
Lets look at the Hollywood of the golden age, how elegant those ladies were: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Marlene Dietrich… Can you imagine those ladies twerking?!
And I don’t want that art form to be lost!
“Be the woman with the air of mystery, who cultivates her mind and seeks out the art…
The women who walks through her day as though she knows a delicious secret.
Cultivating poise is an adventure. Are you ready for the challenge?
The author talks about 5 characteristics of poise:
CONFIDENCE: Feeling comfortable in your own skin.
COMPOSURE: Keeping a positive perspective while maintaining calm self-possession.
COMPASSION: Thinking of others and practicing selflessness.
PRESENTATION: Appropriately and stylishly dressed, with good posture.
PRESENT: Poised people live passionately in the present moment.
I’m forever inspired by the Parisian Chic and even made a tiny Eiffel Tower necklace as a talisman. See it here: www.obelojewelry.com
