Sunflower

Hi everyone! Today was an exciting day for me because it marked my first month as a Sales Consultant at Fendi. In this short period of time, I've already learned a wealth of information about our brand and have come to adore the stylish, charismatic and cultured members of Team Fendi. Although the position comes with a string of challenges, I'm determined to overcome my obstacles through self reflection and a sunny disposition. Look below for a classically styled ensemble and my personal guidelines to success in the field of luxury fashion:

Dress: ASOS
Coat: Bebe
Shoes: Nine West
Bracelet: Fendi 

Project positivity. Oftentimes we underestimate how strongly our emotions can impact our performance. Having a positive attitudeone that lends us to be unfazed and optimistic despite failureis the first key to success. Instead of blaming external factors, maintain your composure and brainstorm methods of self improvement. Although you can't always change the situation, you can alter your perspective and attitude towards the situation. My philosophy is to do as much (and complain as little) as possible. In addition, people will naturally be drawn to you if you exude warmth and genuine kindness.

Be goal-oriented. At Fendi, everyone is assigned a figure for the month to help our team reach the projected goal. When the overarching task seems daunting, it's helpful to set smaller, more attainable goals on a daily basis. What's your focus for the day? How can you maximize your potential? While having a positive attitude keeps you happy, setting goals motivates and drives you to action. 

Take time to recover. Even self-proclaimed workaholics need time to relax, recover and enjoy life. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is crucial to one's mental and physical well being, as well as to one's level of productivity. On my list? Spending time with my loved ones, eating sweets and blogging! 

Stylized Luxe is a forum to not only share my style perspective, but also articulate my insights. Thank you for taking the time to read this post :) Also, what do you think about my outfit? I hope you're having a wonderful start to the holiday season!
