Everyone Can Be Their Own "Frockstar"

Jody Red Shirt
I recently had the distinct honor of being dubbed by Brooklyn based dressmaker Karina Dresses as a "Frockstar."  In addition to selling figure-flattering designs (many with pockets!) in eye-catching prints, Karina Dresses also celebrates the beauty of self-empowerment and self-acceptance - a message I can truly get behind!  You can read my interview with Karina by clicking on the photo above.

So, just what is a "Frockstar?"  Karina describes the "FrockstarManifesto" as follows:

A Frockstar believes in self-love and self-acceptance. She believes in the innate beauty of all women when they accept and love themselves as they are.

A Frockstar can be any age from 18 to 80 because all generations of women bring valuable life experience & hard-won insight to the party.

A Frockstar body can take any shape & size, without loving her own body less, and without judging anyone else’s body.

A Frockstar leads a full life & plays many roles. On any given day she may be wife, lover, mother, sister, co-worker, world traveler, artist, athlete, activist, spiritual advisor. Or all of these!

A Frockstar thinks globally & acts locally. She believes in supporting local & community-based business & insists that all companies take care in managing their impact on the environment.

A Frockstar believes in the power of human connectedness. She values lasting relationships over fleeting fads, handmade over machine-made, and wants to know that she is valued as a customer.

I really hope, and certainly strive, to live up to the Frockstar moniker, and I'll be spreading the Frockstar message through monthly guest posts over at the Karina Chronicles blog, in addition to my regular posts here.  You can read my first guest post - about ways to stop your racing mind - at this link!  

Every one of YOU is a Frockstar, too, and I'm so honored you're on this journey with me.

Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
