EPISODE 020 – Stasia Savasuk
Today’s guest is style coach, power thrifter, and empowerment expert Stasia Savasuk. Her story is quite remarkable and takes us on a journey through her time in the peace corps to becoming a medical mother & fierce advocate for her daughter, to her life now as a passionate supporter of women on the path to finding their style and invigorating their lives.
I wanted to bring Stasia Savasuk on the podcast because of her fresh, unconventional perspective on style. According to Stasia, style isn’t simply about knowing your colors or what shapes and proportions work best for your body (although those are HUGE in transforming how you look and feel in your clothes). Stasia emphasizes the value of what she calls inside-out congruency, or showing the world who you are by the clothes that you wear.
Now I know this may trigger some thoughts like “but it’s what’s on the INSIDE that matters”, or “I can’t afford to transform my entire wardrobe”.
I hear that.
But what Stasia is here to say is that YES! It IS what’s on the inside that matters.
When you dress fearlessly, shamelessly, and powerfully YOU, you are showing that to the world and it makes anything is possible.
We talk about how taking risks in what you wear builds on itself and becomes this fuel into taking risks in other areas of your life.
Stasia and I chat about all of this and LOTS more, including her tips for those of us making our own clothing.
I know you’re going to love this conversation, and I truly hope it gets you thinking about your wardrobe (and LIFE) in and entirely new way.
