We were inspired this week by our friends at the TODAY Show as they were highlighting #WearWhatYouWant as they kicked off their TODAY Style. If you have not heard of TODAY Style, check it out (http://www.today.com/style) –we totally dig that it is about “Real bodies, real budgets and real inspiration – that’s our message and our mission. Forget the “rules” and join us in celebrating style choices that make you feel your best. We want you to look in the mirror and love what you see.” Their message and mission is so in line with ours as we are “Helping Women Shop Differently” at our MODE locations.
So in honor of the fun that the TODAY team had this week wanted to share some of our ideas on #WearWhatYouWant
- Skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans or flare jeans – just do it! We recently had a new customer tell us that she left our store with skinny jeans for the very first time. You see, she wasn’t interested in trying anything besides some accessories because she wasn’t feeling too amazing about herself and her body at the time and was simply in one of our stores to take part in a VIP party that her friend was hosting. Our team pulled some items for her, including skinny jeans and her reaction was amazing. In her own words “I walked out of there feeling like I was finally going to be able to walk into work, go out to dinner with my boyfriend, or attend a function feeling pretty again. All because the employees took the time to make me feel special, build up my self-confidence, and find clothes that flattered my body.” To our amazing new customer, we say #WearWhatYouWant because you are amazing and looked amazing in those new skinny jeans!
- Age doesn’t mean a darn thing! Ladies, we often hear you say “I’m too old to wear that” but we are here to tell you – No Way! If you love it, wear it as style has no age limit. We love it when women are willing to try something new and embrace what they love instead of letting their inner voice hold them back. If you want to wear over the knee boots, a blanket scarf, sleeveless tops, we are here to help you find a style that you love and feel comfortable in as you rock the look!
- It’s your hair, we don’t care! Ladies, listen up! We are too often caught in our trap of what we have always done or what we’ve been told to do with our hair. Many of us long for the looks that we see on others, be it a fun pixie cut, cute wispy bangs or a bold and beautiful fall color. Here is the deal, it is YOUR hair and life is too darn short to not go for it. When we say #WearWhatYouWant why not try something new with your hairdo?
We’d love to hear what you’ve been wanting to wear and if you have tried it. Let’s encourage each other and “Forget the Rules” this week!
