Change is here – welcome to Turning Fashion Inside Out! New name, new weekly podcast (launching soon). I made the name change because … fashion is not always for those on the inside. Many of us feel left out of the fashion industry if we don’t look a certain way or purchase certain clothes or travel in the fashion circles … what’s inside is expressed by our fashion choices on the outside … and because some feedback from participants have noted that “your blog is really helpful to understand that fashion and confidence go together and always involve change.” What will never change, however, are my guiding principles and who I am.

Changes are coming!

Changes are coming!

This week I will be changing the name of my blog and launching a new addition to the website – an audio podcast. It is time to bring our conversations to life!

But change can be liberating, and I’ve discovered that most things that make our hearts beat a little faster are usually worth it. This week marks big changes for me and for my blog. And I have you to thank; for helping me to recognize the positive direction this blog is taking me. Your feedback and your contributions have given me the strength of purpose to change and move forward. I thank you.

Stay tuned …
