Hi! I’m Stephanie and I help women reclaim their confidence and joie-de vivre, awaken their senses and revel in happiness, rediscover their feminine beauty and power so they can finally have what they truly, deeply want in life.
Like most good stories, it wasn’t always so…
With my thick glasses, large feet, cherubic wild, curly hair and unusually tall body, growing up was often very painful.
I felt like a Wookie. A big, hairy alien.
I couldn’t be beautiful like other girls, so I tried to do what so many of us do. Be good. Be nice. Be perfect. Make myself smaller.
Take up less room. Be quieter. Less visible. Even though I wanted so much to be seen and heard.
I went through what most women go through. No matter what we look like, we feel the same way. Not short enough, tall enough, thin enough, pretty enough, smart enough. We learn that we are never, ever enough.
Despite a natural love of sewing, fabric, creative, beautiful clothes and adornment, I had an intense love-hate relationship with fashion and those same negative messages the fashion industry inundates women with.
I tried to toughen up. I rejected makeup and girly stuff. I wore my hair buzz-cut short. I pushed away my femininity as a weakness. For an entire decade, I wore my dad’s old leather jacket like armour.
I thought I needed to make myself more masculine to succeed.
Something began to change the day I discovered bellydancing.
I felt the spark of being connected to my body in a way I had never experienced before. I started to feel graceful. Feminine. I discovered I actually liked looking at my tall, curvy body in the mirror.
I fell in love with bellydancing, and went on to teach other women the art. The most rewarding thing was not having my students learn the movements, it was witnessing them reconnecting with their belly, with their body, and with their femininity. Feelings that come only when the body is in pleasurable motion: especially sensual, fluid, strong, playful and feminine motion.
I saw my beautiful students, once so critical of their bodies, begin to see their own beauty in motion.
Dancing with more pride and joy in their bodies.
Loving this new perspective, revelling in my own woman’s body, I reconnected with the lost part of me that had rejected external “beauty” for years.
I finally found out what it was to feel ‘right’ in my clothes. To adorn myself with jewels that made me feel like…well…a Goddess. Feel like “Me”.
Beautiful. Sexy. Powerful in my femininity. It was transformational.
Everything started to come together.
The deep desire to help women feel beautiful both inside and out inspired me to study image consulting, helping women dress their gorgeous selves. I refined my own methods of helping women dress in a way that made them shine, translating a woman’s essence into a practical vocabulary of their very own style.
Through my own journey and after years of helping my clients, I can confidently say: It’s about inside and out. We need both in order to thrive. And this combination makes all the difference. Having a wardrobe that’s in harmony with the authentic you, and feeling like a goddess when you’re wearing it! Simply being in your own magnificent, sacred skin.
It’s also about how you feel about yourself, and your sensual, feminine body. How you connect with your body. How you move your body – and move through the world.
