Reachel Bagley of Cardigan Empire: Moving Beyond the Superficial

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

"I have worth and it isn’t always looking to the external to try to find validation, because that’s an endless competition that you’re never going to win.  It doesn’t bring any happiness."

Reachel Bagley is not your normal "fashion blogger."  Sure, she has a fabulous sense of style--one that you're going to salivate over.  But Reachel loves fashion because of what it can do to really transform someone's confidence, to help them feel more empowered to face their lives and their trials. She loves to really teach her clients and her followers what colors, cuts, and fits look best on their bodies, not just show her own polished outfits.  (One of her mantras is: it's not that you aren't fitting into your clothes, it's that your clothes aren't fitting YOU.)

Reachel knows what it is like to lack confidence, and in a really dark way.  Her own sense of pride and love of her body took a beating after years of infertility.  She saw her body as something to be punished, not loved, because of the way she saw it hurting her.  But 10 years later and after a lot of work, Reachel has earned that love and acceptance of her body because she knows who she really is at her core.  She knows that our worth isn't dependent on a size or a number on the scale--it's innate, and it will never change.

Listen to learn about how Reachel came about this transformation, what she hopes to inspire in others, how she views fashion as a tool, how she got her start and developed her business into what it is today, and much more.
