My friends and family always say that I look confident in every clothes that I wear, of course, this is flattering. Well, I guess I just know how to choose the right clothes to wear that is perfect for every occasion or even just during casual days.
Actually, I grew up having “an eye” for great clothes. I love clothes! May it be expensive or beautifully made with the right and comfortable fabric, I know how to spot for a “durable” but comfy one that will surely boost my confidence when wearing it.
You know, I believe that choosing the right clothes greatly affects one’s mental processes and perceptions. I mean, it can “make or break” your day, don’t you agree? For instance, if you’re attending an event and wearing a beautiful casual dress that you’re not comfortable at all, chances are, you will be itching to go home and take off that dress even before the event has started! That’s awful!
This is one of the reasons why I am very careful in picking out what clothes to wear and plan it ahead. Ever since I was a little girl I love wearing dresses, I felt that my clothes helped me express my personality and better yet, they made me feel more confident.
Honestly, I seldom go out without giving a thought on what I should wear. And because of this habit, my daughter, Keisha is starting to become a “fashionista” also. At 2 years old, she already knew what clothes will compliment her and which one would make her feel “ugly”.
Since I am really inclined with clothing, I recently opened an online shop haven for fashionable but affordable closet staples and I’m calling it Kaleisha Collection (obviously from my name and may daughter’s).
And because we both love clothes, I teach her how to take good care of them so it can last long. It is very important for me and Keisha to take good care of our clothes so that they will still look new and well taken care of, even if they have been used for several times.
I would like to share some of the FashionCare tips that I follow:
- Read Care Labels – this is the basic one but most commonly overlooked. It is very important to read the labels to make sure that the fabric/clothes can be handled with care, especially during washing.
- Hang Clothes to Dry – although we may be in a hurry to dry our clothes, dryers can easily wear them out. So as much as possible, hang them to dry naturally.
- Buy fabrics that are durable – yes, it is important to invest in durable fabrics because in the long run, you will be thankful that you didn’t spend much on buying new one’s every time the old one wears down.
- Choosing the right washing machine – to keep your favorites clothes looking newer for longer, it is very important to choose the right washing machine, like the ELECTROLUX Washing Machines. With the new Electrolux with UltraMix™ technology, Electrolux washing machine allows to wash all kinds of fabric and rest assured that each will be well-cared for. Electrolux has the innovative Vapour Refresh program, which is a quick cycle designed to refresh delicate ones without using detergent, as well as, the Woolmark certified cycle that will safely launder precious woolens.
Because of these FashionCare “rituals” and my PowerDressing looks, I have experienced a lot of life-changing events that I thought I would not be able to do so if I don’t have that self-confidence in me. Because of the self-confidence that I have, which I “blame” part of it in the way I dress, I was able to do a TV guesting stint, host some important events, became brand ambassadors and a digital influencer, among others.
