what is the gender fluid edit?
i'm so excited to introduce you to a new service that is very close to my heart!
sometimes the universe keeps ringing you over and over again until you begin to trust the signs to walk in that direction. over the past two years, i’ve had the pleasure of working with some clients on a special journey.
now more than ever, spirit (divinity, these crazy times, call it what you will) has asked us to look within, to let go of parts of ourselves that are no longer working, and to walk in the direction of our hearts. to me, there is no more authentic journey than that of someone who is choosing to transition.
walking this path with clients is not something new to me. together with my uber-talented and compassionate shop girls, we had been grateful to assist some transgender and gender fluid clients (TGNC) since my days as the shop owner of my closed boutique, mira mira, in the mission district. to say that i was intimidated at first would be an understatement! i surprised myself when i trusted my intuitive style sense and learned i could do this naturally and that it gave me such an immediate sense of purpose.
i'm an old school san francisco girl, raised right by the castro, and once part of the colorfully fluid rave scene of the 90s in sf, nyc, and beyond. fluidity and freedom have always been a big part of who i am. but after opening mira mira, i got a lot of practice and by trial and error, i was grateful to have customers that were willing to help me learn. what i realized is that (of course!) the rules are all the same. no matter who we are or how we present ourselves, it benefits us to know what are our most positive attributes and to learn to accentuate them in the most effortless way. having an elegant but playful approach to dressing, to colors, prints and silhouettes, i can create a unique look that is joyful and authentic to all of my customers. i surprised not only my trans clients but also myself about how much we could really transform a look and someone’s life.
what we learned is the cool-girl chic that we were once known for could be transported to anyone! the style and lessons are the same… an intimate understanding of our bodies and our style goals, delivered with compassion and lots of support, helps us to confidently learn what to wear to bring out our very best, inside and out. for all my transgender clients, this is a joyful discovery process to be seen as we are today and not as we once presented.
i’m honored and humbled (and soooo dang excited!) to officially offer a new service to my business roster and to be along on this journey. presenting…the fluid edit!
