Power Dressing in 2019

Announcing, The 2019 World Tour…✨Sometimes at the start of a new year or season, whether figurative or literal, I’ve notice a little game I play to set new intentions for myself where I imagine I’m a superstar about to embark on my “world” tour and decide on “the theme” and who I want to be(come). The inspo is often the same: Madonna’s The Re-invention Tour. Because Madge is fire🔥 and the OG at reinventing her persona and personal style. I noticed early on her ownership of her personal power and the idea you can recreate yourself and start over any time. It wasn’t until I was older that I even started believing it for myself. So, next important step: I replace her name with my own.



As is this case often with resolutions, I’ve been on “Christina: The Re-invention Tour” a few times now, and sometimes I need some time off before the next one. But each time is an adventure and I come back with a few more lessons under my belt. So I’m announcing another world tour! Which means I’m going after some goals, old and new in 2019, and will be crossing off some more bucket-list items. I’m also choosing the word “bold” to focus my intentions even more as a reminder to take risks and keep making choices that will allow me to grow and bring you the inspired, impactful editorial content I want to create here on Artfully.


I also declare this year, “The Year of the Sparkly Dress,” because I want to shine bright, feel special and make no apologies for it. So you’ll see lots of sequins in my costume changes, ha!  Sequins are a perfect choice if you want to stand out and feel revitalized. You can even wear them for day on heels, a clutch or headband or by pairing a sequin slip dress or skirt with a fuzzy cardigan or sweater and mules or slides.  How about you? What’s your world “tour” looking like this year? I’d love to hear your word and ideas in the comments. Or, just let me know what’s your favorite item from your closet to wear and I hope you make the commitment to wear it and shine in 2019!
