Exploring Super Styles – Who’s Influenced Your Style?

None of us have come to style through a vacuum.  All of us have been influenced in our style journeys – whether it’s been heavily influenced by a stylish mother with a strong opinion, or via our friends or peers at work, or through the media – TV shows and movies, magazines and online sources.

So it’s interesting to take a moment and reflect on who has influenced your style, and how.  This is part of the authentic style journey we aim to reconnect women with – you aren’t dressing a mannequin after all!
