Hello, Women of Midlife, I am Glenda K. Harrison of the style blog – So What to Twenty!

I am absolutely thrilled to join the writing team of Midlife Boulevard! I will be sharing with you my point of view on style.

Now, I know that many of you are familiar with my style stories and blogging brand, however, some of you are not. So, to properly introduce myself and my point of view, this feature will give a clear description of my style philosophy.

Trust me when I say, you’ll never view style the same way again. On my blog, I tell stories of lifestyle and use my fashion choices as the visual picture. I’m hoping to follow the same formula, but to also bring a more detailed perspective on this thing called fashion.

Let me first begin by making this remark, and if you follow my blog or my Instagram account you have seen me make this statement,

“My wardrobe is a cast of characters in my life, and together we tell one heck of a style story.”

In my opinion, style and fashion are not the same, and yet, the two words are often used similarly or at the very least, in conjunction with one another. Style represents our essence and the ability to comport oneself to the world. Fashion, in terms of clothing, is simply what we wear.

But here is where the two come together! Our wardrobe can and should become a part of who we are. It should assist in communicating our stories. True style resonates when a person’s essence and wardrobe come together in perfect harmony. Have you ever wondered why you can see two women wearing the same outfit; you connect with one, while the other is less interesting? It is my hope that my contributions to Midlife Boulevard will bring a better understanding of this phenomenon.

My Fashion and Style Philosophy

First – I do not subscribe to FashionRobotism. This is a word I made up to represent someone dressing according to the terms or ideas of others. I’m of the mindset where I wear what works for me and my lifestyle, and not what others believe I should wear. In order to take this empowering position, you must know yourself intimately. Once you arrive to this place of intimacy, you will be able to rock a look with utter confidence and your unmatched style will shine through.

Second – I believe style is somewhat of the anti-fashion. Yep, you read it correct. Style doesn’t mean you’re on the hunt for the latest trends. On the contrary, with style, you pay less attention to trends, and select fashions that are, both, expressive and meld seamlessly into your lifestyle – regardless if they’re the hottest thing. Because having the uncanny ability to decipher which looks will have a special place in your heart will ensure that your wardrobe always looks like you.

I hope you enjoy my sartorial perspective and ideas on style. I’m looking forward to the social interaction.

Stay True,
Glenda

From the runway to your personal closet, be it advice on the proper attire, or suggestions on how to live life to the fullest, readers throughout the world are being inspired by connecting to “So What to Twenty”, a style blog by creator, author, and freelance style contributor, Glenda K. Harrison, graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with a degree in Marketing and Merchandising. Although fashion and style are important to her, Harrison's real passion is reminding others of the importance of self-love and using one's God-given gifts and talents. Her blog inspires readers to view fashion as an all-encompassing vehicle and encourages women to explore their personal gifts, style, power, and, most importantly, inner beauty. Harrison has been quoted saying, "I view my clothing as the cast of characters in my life, and together we tell the story of Glenda." The death of her mother spurred Harrison to launch A Daughter's Heart in 2008, a cancer support service that partnered with hospitals to provide love and support to women undergoing cancer treatment. She put aside that work to focus on her lifelong dream of touching lives through her writing and her passionate point of view on the subject of style. Harrison has authored an inspirational memoir titled, A Place Called Peace, and, True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface. Both available on CreateSpace eStore and Amazon.
