INTERVIEW: Fashion, Style, and Health with Sandi Mele

INTERVIEW: Fashion, Style, and Health with Sandi Mele

Hello! Alrighty, to close out this week, I’m excited to share a new interview. This one is on a bit of a different topic: fashion, style, and clothing.

If I’d have asked myself 5 years ago how fashion and style related to health (and if I thought they were important), I’d have laughed. Fashion and style? No, that’s not important to me. And to spend time on what I’m wearing, how I’m dressing, and what I buy? Perhaps leaning into the materialistic, shallow, and focusing outward for approval zone. Nope, that’s not where I want to be.

Fast forward 5 years and my tune is changing, a huge part in thanks to the heartfelt and real work of stylist Sandi Mele of The Style Shop ( After learning about her work through a business course I took, her thoughts and perspective got me thinking (and thinking hard!). Maybe, just maybe, how I choose to dress (dare I even say adorn) myself does have an impact on my health (and happiness too!).

In our chat, Sandi and I talk about how she got into this work, how what we wear connects to the bigger picture of health, wellness, and life, her recommendations for a capsule wardrobe (I now know what a “capsule wardrobe” is!), the hard truth she learned from a recent girl’s night out, and much, much more. Please join us!

    I wish it hadn’t taken me so long to listen to this interview, but maybe it’s coming at the right time. The season will be changing, I’ve lost some weight, and I’m gaining some new scars from joint replacements. I’m not ashamed of them at all, but I don’t want everyone to notice them first thing. So, longer skirts and dresses will be in order. Time to clean out my closet! Thanks Robin and Sandi!
