Laura + Bodega = Dream Date

Have you ever read about the benefits of wearing the same thing every day? The most successful business people are doing it, the articles say. It’s liberating for a woman to choose not dress to impress, they argue. The theory is that there are benefits to saving your brain power for what’s important, rather than using it up on what’s not. 
And in theory, I get it. As an entrepreneur I’m no stranger to decision-making fatigue. (The struggle is real, my friends.)
But in reality? I don’t care who’s doing it, a self-imposed work uniform couldn’t be further from my truth. 
What you wear can impact how you feel, how you feel can impact how you behave, and how you behave most definitely impacts how you succeed. Not only do I care about how I feel, behave and succeed…I care about how I dress.
I see closets as playgrounds. For me, style is empowerment. Self-expression isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. In my world, what I choose to wear can actually be one of the most meaningful decisions I make all day. 
The only person I dress to impress is me. AND IT’S JUST PLAIN FUN. 
Fashion is a joy I’ve been indulging in my entire life. And now, as a Bodega Boutique brand ambassador I get to share that joy with you! I’ll be exploring, celebrating and playing…and blogging, tweeting and Instagramming along the way. It would only be appropriate to call this a dream date, really. 
So let’s get to know each other. Tell me, what does fashion mean to YOU? I’d love to know! Tweet @mynameisbigl to say hello and share your thoughts!
