Minerva's Breakdown

Advice for those on the verge


Dear Minerva,

I am a huge fan of yours, and I think you are an absolutely fabulous, sexy, vivacious vixen. Any tips you can pass on to the ladies on how to bring out their inner fabulousness? I've worked in corporate America for so long that I've taken on a manly persona in work and in my love life. I need help getting in touch with the sexy femme I've been covering in power suits.

Dear Free,

My goodness, what praise! I think cultivating a personal style starts inside. Once you know who you are, you can dress and look however you want—it comes down to confidence in yourself. A corporate environments can stifle your style; however, it can also be a great place to show you are powerful and dynamic. Your power suit doesn't hold the power, you do. Your personal style can fit into that world and with the use of color and accessories, you can convey you are a bold, forward thinking asset to your company. Notice I used the word "style" and not "fashion." A flattering hairstyle, tailored outfits and bold, unique accessories will not only make you look your best but make you feel your best. Don't forget sexy femmes hold a great deal of power and women have far more freedom in the attire department. Be yourself in all you do.
