Today, I’m just thrilled to offer you a guest post from stylist Char Dobbs! I met Char at a LOTT event, and we hit it off immediately when I discovered that her styling philosophy mirrored my own: She believes that style and confidence are linked, and that dressing well can help women who struggle with self-image feel bolder and braver. I’m no longer offering style consult services myself, so I’m especially excited to have connected with Char since she offers the same gentle, body-positive approach that I did!

Earlier this year, writer and dogsledder Blair Braverman reached out to me about writing a guest post. As soon as I learned a bit more about her and discovered that she was coming to the Twin Cities for a reading of her new book, Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube, I knew we had to meet. After attending the reading and meeting up for a lovely breakfast, I admired her even more for her honesty, courage, and willingness to follow her heart. We talked about what it meant to be a “tough girl,” the challenges of freelance writing, working in a male-dominated field, and the joys of life with animals.
I linked to Third Wheel ED a couple of months ago, a post in which Jamie mused on the power of hair that I absolutely adored. After that, she reached out and offered to write a guest post, saying, “Currently as I’m going through my recovery, I am struggling with finding clothes that are both comfortable and appropriate for a work setting, and that simultaneously satisfy my gender expression with my body’s new shape. I would love to talk more about the process of figuring this out and finding clothes etc because I think this is a much larger problem that people don’t talk about.” I said I’d be honored, and here we are!
