The Power of Inner Beauty

February 11, 2014

Let’s face it, we’re too hard on ourselves. While others may see a lively, confident gal in you, we are often our own toughest critic. We asked perfect strangers to describe some of our CAbi models, designers, and staff we know and love.  The answers were something beautiful, as you will read below.

Next time you turn a critical eye on our own beauty, remember that attitude and self-confidence can make a big difference.  Looking happy, being positive, and having a bright smile can make any outfit look good.  And ladies, how many of us take a beautiful compliment and knock it by adding something negative? We all have a tendency to do this–but instead, just say, “thank you” and own it. No need to diminish it by adding “oh, but…”, right?

Is there a compliment someone has paid you that has made you feel special or has stuck out in your mind? Share it in the comments below.
