Episode 020: Stylist Stasia Savasuk


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.

We didn’t have a chance to talk about this, but Stasia’s Styled by My Child Project is how I initially discovered her on Instagram. Can you imagine giving your child free reign in your closet and then wearing whatever they choose for you ALL DAY? Stasia and Raisa did it once a week for a full year. Check out the roundup here.

    My word of the year is Story. It speaks to telling my stories and sharing the stories of others in a variety of ways. This conversation has re-inspired me to take a look at my wardrobe and break up with anything that doesn’t make me feel like the best version of myself.

    What about YOU?

  • Karina Kuok says:

    What a meaningful and educational podcast, Sonia and Stasia. It is chocked full of inspiring stories and style tips and also a contemporary update re: the latest Barbie line, and implications to perspectives of little girls! I thoroughly enjoyed listening. 🤗

  • Mary says:

    Well, I posted somewhere else, too!
    I loved this podcast. It’s such a great reminder to me to be fully alive, and experiment! I have so many beautiful, fun, things in my closet that I don’t wear! I’ve told myself so many of the things that keep me stuck. And now, I’m ready to share my insides with my outside! Thank you!
    My word for this year is Love.

  • Rorie Solberg says:

    This podcast did inspire me and I dressed yesterday for how I wanted to feel…and found that my closet didn’t have a lot of words so I am working on changing that. I was also about to start a swatch for a summer tank and took a good look at the pattern. Guess what? It is totally wrong for me. Off to ravelry!
