Sometimes I meet someone awesome that I know right away I want to interview on The School of Greatness.
But it doesn’t always happen immediately. And sometimes that works out for the best because by the time we get around to the interview, they are up to even bigger things.
Such is the case with today’s guest, my friend Stacy London.
If you watched the hit show What Not to Wear on TLC for any of its 10 seasons, you’ll recognize Stacy as the iconic stylist with the gray streak in her hair.
But she is much more than that.
Stacy is an incredible example of building a positive self-image, style, and career despite big challenges.
We met through my friend Nick Onken (who took this photo) and I have loved learning her story and becoming friends with her.
In our interview she tells the behind the scenes details of how she overcame a skin disorder, autoimmune disease, poor self-esteem, and the grueling schedule of shooting a TV show and has created a career and brand that is centered in making people, including herself, feel and look their very best.
Even if you don’t care about fashion at all, Stacy sheds interesting light on why style matters for everyone.
I love everything we talk about in this Episode 327 with Stacy London.
Did what Stacy said surprise you or do you agree with her viewpoint on style?
