Product Description

From the Publisher

STYLE STATEMENT is an inspiring take on the power of style and authenticity. Deemed "style psychotherapists,"Carrie Danielle are the creators of the Style Statement: a two-word compass that helps you make more confident choices in life -- from your wardrobe to your relationships, your living room to your career plans. Part workbook, part inspirational narrative, STYLE STATEMENT presents a series of inquiries that lead readers to the personal words that guide the spirit, look and feel of their life. The first word represents your foundation, your 80%. The second word, your 20%, is what motivates and distinguishes you. Via Carrie Danielle's Lifestyle Map, readers then explore how their own unique Style Statement can generate momentum in every area of their life.

Format: Paperback
Style Statement is a must have - Carrie and Danielle have eloquently and elegantly written a manual for life. With the crazy hectic pace of modern life this book is like a much needed oasis smack in the middle of the desert. It's like liquid poetry, soothing to the soul. It's like years of therapy, in a beautiful, painless package.

Beyond the exquisite images the book contains, Style Statement has helped me rediscover me. As a business owner and mother, I've found it extremely helpful in all areas of my life. I've found my focus which is reason to celebrate.

From picking out new dishes easily and effortlessly to creating a new hairstyle to helping me partition aspects of running my business, my style statement (cultured designing) has played a role. It's a map, it's a guide, it's magical - it's a path back to you, no matter how buried the real you has become.

My only question is - so when is the next book out Carrie & Danielle?

I bought this book as a skeptic, and approached it with some reservations. As I worked through the self-reflective questions, I came to appreciate the depth of thought that went into its design and purpose. Finally, a book that does not classify the reader into a "pear" or "apple" or advise you to cuff your pants or not. This book goes to the essence of style. It's already saved me from numerous mistakes, and I both want and buy less. It's essential for me to add that the book also examines one's relation to the world: how you connect with family, friends and community, how you share your gifts. It's an exercise in self-awareness, not self-absorption.

Holding this book in my hands and taking in the beauty and wisdom of each page was a luscious and illuminating experience. I LOVED the intimacy and humour of the Style Statement profiles - each one is like a little movie or a story vignette. Workbooks usually turn me off but this book was different; there's lots of build up, explaining and examples before you actually get down to your own work. I found the exercises short, snappy AND super effective. Ask yourself enough of the right questions and a real clarity emerges. I get it now. I get me.

This book is a must, not only for women, but for men.

This book will guide you to find the ability to be authentic in all parts of your life - at home, in your relationships and at work.

I've found that using my style statement, (with the accompanying exercises), as my own personal mission statement, has helped me clarify my goals, vision and direction of my life!

I highly recommend this, not only as a good read - but as a map and guide.

A great tool in assessing the real you. I really enjoyed reading the various style statements and seeing how one's style statement can really influence decisions made in every day life. I like that it can help you better define your 'look' on the outside AND on the inside. Pick it up - you'll enjoy it.
