Winter Trends and Magnetizing Your Closet
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Dear <<First Name>>,

Fabulous news: Fashion Feng Shui® just increased its global reach thanks to the efforts of Sue Donnelly, FFSM, and Facilitator-in-Training Sheila Wong, AICI CIP. Earlier this month, Sue led a live Facilitator Certification Training Course in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for 10 new FFS Facilitators. With the addition of these talented ladies to our family, we will gain a firm foothold in Asia. This has always been a very important objective for us, and we're thrilled to be adding so many facilitators to our ranks in one go. Hats off to Sue and Sheila!

If you're new to Fashion Feng Shui®, consider taking Dress for Your Dreams™, our 12-day self-study course on intention. Registration is now open for our Transform Your Look & Life Workshop and Facilitator Certification Training Course, which both start in January. There will also be a 2018 round of Work Your Element, which trains trainers to apply FFS principles in the business world.

Our new book Fashion Feng Shui for Life is now available for purchase! Penned by our FFS Facilitators and Master Facilitators, it takes our practice to the next level and helps you apply it to everyday situations. To order your copy, click here or search on Amazon!

Winter Trends 2017/2018


by Geraldine Wijsbeek, FFSM

The winter season is waking upon once again, and it's time to attend to our wardrobe. Each season sees designers take on various themes that they use to draw inspiration from. These themes vary from historical eras to a particular region or culture, nature or a film. Every new season has its own challenges for us and for our clients. In Fashion Feng Shui®, it's not just about the new season's trends, but rather teaching people how they can transform the way they see themselves and the way others perceive them. Nonetheless, this challenge is even more important with each change of the season: we need to be able to identify the most authentic personal styles according to our elemental designs, and make purchases that are both stylish and fulfilling!

The secret can be very easy: buy quality clothes at a fair price for your lifestyle and your elemental inner self. Make sure everything fits your body shape: whether the garment is classically styled or edgy, the importance is that it's versatile. That’s all there is to it really, but we all know it's never that simple. FFS can teach you to dress with mindfulness and intention, so you can achieve everything you want. Trust your intuition, and look at the new season's trends with a heartfelt FFS desire!

WATER: The reflective, dark, flowing designs require going deep inside oneself. These looks for both women and men are artistic, intellectual and supportive of spiritual endeavors.

Make Your Closet a Magnet!
closet

by Lucia Bianchi, FFSF

The last time I felt stuck and lost turned out to be a blessing in my life. Why? Because it led me to my rendezvous with Feng Shui and Fashion Feng Shui®. From there, I have journeyed on and discovered something powerful that gives a different dynamic to my daily actions: the power of intention. My vital energies (chi) were stagnant, trapped under layers of impersonal clothes and closed into a home interior linked to my past. Feng Shui taught me how synchronicity doesn’t merely reply to lovely words or perfect visual statements, but rather to the energy, vibrations and Intentions you put into them.

Aha! That was my shift of perception and big change to un-block my situation. Tracking, mapping and correlating clothes in your closet, arrangements and furniture in your home and office help you recognize what's strengthening and enhancing or weakening and detracting from your well-being, well-living and well-working.

When you're fully present in your life, the things around you in your environment and the clothes on your skin aren't just there by accident. They aren't just stuff anymore, because of the intimate physical, emotional and energetic connection you have with them. Step by step, you learn to let go of what you don't love, to declutter your inner and outer space and to live only with what you love. If you join these forces with the “magic breath” of your intention and focus, wow! What a magnet of attraction for your dream life!

And here we are, in the yearly season under the Metal energy. And not for nothing! If you're like me, you may think, "Good! The kind of energy I need between now and December 31 to finish things, to stay focused and to accomplish all I've planned to." Ultimately, to catalogue 2017 as another year to be grateful for!

So I call on my Metal intention in my wardrobe, in my home and in my office, with all the visual affirmations possible to embrace my Metallic magic, day and night. Well, maybe I'll a bit of Fire in my bedroom, pajamas and husband included! 😉



WATER Essence + METAL Intention
If, like me, you're made of an abundance of sparkling water flowing around, then you may want to include a grounding Earth component (Earth dams Water in the Five Elements Controlling Cycle—see above). This will help you to end the year with some excellent results in your hands (and not just an empty bag!). Why not try to combine the yin-feminine-emotional side with the yang-masculine-rational side of your unique being?

 

WOOD Essence + METAL Intention
You're probably already running the 2018 marathon in your head, but hey, it's only November! If you sit still for a moment, you'll be able to appreciate and enjoy all the extra-delicious pieces and results you have, in the here and now. With a Metal focus on collecting all of them from your rolling path, your efficiency and productivity for 2017 will be at their top. Why not drop your athleisure for a more refined and elegant look? But make sure to keep your usual comfortable shoes!

 

FIRE Essence + METAL Intention
Despite the fact that your passionate creativity is boosted when you connect with people or work with them, you risk losing your concentration on your professional goals for Q4 2017. Wearing some Metal or having some Metal arrangements in your environment is useful to recall your attention and energy. In Feng Shui, we say that where your attention goes, your energy flows. The ever-white refinement of the Metal energy in your outfit or in the furniture of your office, in addition to a Water component (Water extinguishes Fire in the Five Elements Controlling Cycle), can help divert the focus from people to results and goals to be achieved by the end of your year. Leave your reds on, but wear a less body-conscious outfit in favor of a more business-like one.
 

Earth Essence + Metal Intention
By nature, you are committed to your 2017, until the very last minute. Generally you take it easy, but there are times when you need to step out and claim your excellence. Putting some Metal in your outfit is going to help you make the jump in quality. You're traditionally attached to your Earthy colors, but why not try to make them look smarter by adding some accessories or a more modern cut?

 
 

Metal Essence + Metal Intention + Metal season = Bingoo!
You're well positioned for getting what you want between now and the end of the year. All scheduled, on time. Everything is well organized on your desk, alias mental clarity about your goals. You need order in your space just like the polished outfit in your closet. Sometimes your best virtues can be your worst enemies though. For instance, if you're stuck, adopting a little something wild in your outfit (Fire melts Metal in the Five Element Controlling Cycle) can free up your creativity to find a way out!
