Ep 161 Talk About Personal Style With Alison Bruhn & Delia Folk, From The Style That Binds Us

Share Post

Hello Friends,

I have an extra special episode for you, and couldn’t have picked a better time to release this new episode than right before you start dreading what to wear with all the upcoming holiday events!

For the first time in over 2 years on TWRD, I am joined by not only one, but two fabulous guests. I’m doing a little happy dance as I sit down with these lovely, accomplished, and very stylish ladies to record EP 161 “Talk About Personal Style With Alison Bruhn & Delia Folk, from The Style That Binds Us” – They are an incredible Mother, Daughter duo who successfully run a business together!

We cover so much ground on this conversation with questions about intertwining personal relationships with entrepreneurship & specifically giving extra attention to the science behind getting dressed. Personally, I’m obsessed with this topic because what we chose to wear daily and how we put ourselves together really does matter, beyond what meets the eye. As I’m sure you all know from experience when you look good, you feel even better.. but confidence is what pulls the outfit together.

Alison & Delia give us tips on how to achieve a fashionable yet budget-friendly wardrobe that can really boost your overall productivity, mood & how you feel about yourself. Here on Talk With Renee Dalo, we want you to look but most importantly feel as fabulous as you all are. This episode is definitely going to get you re-motivated to clean out or closet or even just take the extra time when it comes to getting dressed every single day.

If you are ready to dress to impress, grab a coffee or pour some wine & let’s talk it out.
