Style offers concrete rules you can follow. You can use it as a resource rather than a barrier to feeling good about yourself.
I own about 300 pairs of shoes. When I start to go over 300, I have mini-sales from my closet and give the money to charity. It's my way of recycling; I feel like I can give back to the universe.
Self-esteem doesn't come simply from dressing well, but they are both something we can control. It's a missed opportunity when women say they don't have the money, figure, etc., because style is such a way to help cultivate the way women feel about themselves.
Not one person I know isn't concerned with their appearance. To trivialize fashion is to rob ourselves of a great tool.
