Revealing Baggage

During a Style Assessment session, we ask our clients to fill out a style questionnaire. This does not resemble a magazine survey where points are tallied at the end to find out if one is stylish or not. This is a tool to help clients begin thinking about style issues, about tastes and about themselves.

Some questions are unexpected, some seem strange at first, but if we pay attention to the right questions and answers they can reveal a great deal about us. If nothing else, these questions make us more aware of our habits.

One question is: “What would you never leave home without?” Answers vary. The most common responses include: cell phones, keys, purse, ipod or wallet. But how about a wedding ring? Or a special photograph? Or a pendant from someone you love?

Many women say they would never leave home without mascara or lipstick. Lipstick remains one of the affordable luxuries women won’t live without. In fact, analysts and cosmetics companies around the world have taken note of the correlation between a tough economy and stellar lipstick sales. It is an instant ‘feel good’ item that doesn’t take a lot of cash or space. Make-up is actually one of the most popular choices for things women won’t leave home without.

What would your answer be? What is the one thing you need with you when you go out to face the world?
