“A passage over obstacles; a bridge is a connection that transitions two adjacent elements…”  When working with people in discovering their personal style, I feel like I am a bridge that  links them to their personal and professional goals.  The road to personal style, for some, can be daunting, fearful and stressful.  Most like to play it safe and never cross that bridge.  Some fear switching lanes in case they cause a ‘style’ accident.  Others worry that they will stall or get stuck in a style rut.  Fear not my friends!  The  bridge deck is clear and I’m your BCAA!:)  Remember, like a good bridge, a wardrobe is built with a strong base.  The materials and fabrics used to build your wardrobe may vary, however, one component supports another to give it structure.  Some of us are built long and narrow, while others are small yet robust.  Simply put, a good wardrobe provides functionality and architectural beauty, and helps us stand strong and tall; like a bridge!    I hope this post inspires you to cross over to the style side and find your inner #nadittudeTM !

Concrete Jungle…

Take calculated risks without going over the edge…

I commissioned Vancouver based beautiful jewellery designer, Elsa Corsi, to design this gorgeous pearl and swarovski crystal necklace for me to add to my personal collection.  Next time you’re in Jeweliette Jewellery, ask for the “Nadia” necklace and this is what you’ll get.  Thank you, Elsa!
