Welcome to Spotlight…interviews from inspiring leaders and entreprenuers that are hand-selected by me because of who they are and what they’re committed to creating in the world. Great brands and amazing people with an inspiring message with products and services I truly believe in.

In the Spotlight this week is Crystal Cave, she is a former client so I know first-hand her passion for changing the way we think of “style” and embracing our bodies.

Let’s be honest, we all have those days when we wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and are less than thrilled with what we see?  Trust me ladies, you are not alone!  There are millions of women throughout the world who are not satisfied with the reflection they see staring back at them.  Fear no more!  There is hope!  This week’s Spotlight guest, celebrity stylist and founder of the Icon Style Academy, Crystal Cave, brings us tools and insight to allow us all to feel amazing in whatever body type, skin, or figure God has given us!

The key: Identifying your style, so that you can feel as beautiful as you ARE.

It is so common to believe that we must look a certain way to wear what we want.  Crystal is here to rewire this thought process.  She shares with us that:

“When you find the style that fits how you feel, how you show up to life changes.

Such a powerful statement! Just think of the positive shifts that will begin to happen when you show up to your life, comfortable in your skin, and confident in not only what you wear, but also who you are.

When it comes to fashion & style, body type is often the first thing we think of.   Crystal encourages us to move beyond this limiting belief system.  Instead, we must dig into what our true essence is, and strive to showcase THAT in our wardrobe.

In her years as a celebrity stylist, Crystal has found that “it’s really about bringing the inner soul of who you are as a person.  THAT is what makes a Style Icon”.

Unsure about what your personal style is?  Crystal has made it easy for us!  She has broken down fashion & style into what she calls the Five Style Archetypes.  Once you have identified which archetype you are, the rest is simple!

Watch the full interview below, as Crystal goes into more depth on the five different Style Archetypes, and how to bring your inner essence into your wardrobe.

“It’s not the dress that makes the woman, it’s the woman that makes the dress.”

My hope is that this interview leads you to find what inspires you, what lights you up and what reflects your own unique rhythm.  It’s not about finding what you “should wear”, but about using your personal style to reflect your heart and soul to the world.  It’s time for us all to become Style Icons!
