I want to see you. Who you are on the inside.
You have a rare and natural beauty that can never exist again.
Your beauty is a gift. When you shine your light from within, you naturally inspire others to do the same.
Show me your Inner Selfie.
Capture the essence of your inner beauty and style in an inspired moment.
Here is my beautiful friend, Jessica. After reading my book, “Spirit of S.T.Y.L.E.,” she felt so inspired to share her “Inner Selfies” and personal experience of the book. I’m so humbled to be able to touch her life in this way.
“Jennifer Gabiola has revolutionized the way I look at style, fashion, and the formerly mundane act of getting dressed in the morning. As a spiritual person, I judged fashion as trite and uninteresting. I rushed through my morning routine, going for comfort and practicality when choosing my outfit or wearing the same ‘professional outfits’ day after day as if they were a uniform.
Now I get it! Having read Jennifer’s transformative “Spirit of S.T.Y.L.E.” e-book, I have opened my eyes to the fact that getting dressed can be a sacred act. I can intentionally tune into my truest self when I get dressed in the morning. As I am on a continuing quest of embodying and expressing my unique essence in the world, I discovered a missing piece. Now, I will create my own style that authentically reflects my uniqueness. My fashion can be a celebration of my inner truth and beauty. How fun!
After finishing this book, I rushed right into my closet. I tuned into my inner-self and found my way to an outfit that felt like ME. Wearing it (which happened to include Jennifer’s Dawning Soul “I AM” Poetic Tee), I felt inspired to take an impromptu photo shoot. My outer self was congruent with my inner self and I wanted to capture my newfound inner connection and ease. I’m seeing my beauty in a whole new way and it feels honoring to my body and soul.
Thank you, Jennifer. I now have a sacred, intentional, inspirational way to start my day by dressing to express who I truly am.”

I was so moved by her experience that I decided to create a supportive community, the “Spirit of S.T.Y.L.E.” private Facebook group where we can share our personal experience, “Inner Selfies” and photos of what our favorite items mean to us. The purpose of the group is to create a supportive space where we can explore our inner beauty and creatively express who we are from the inside out based on our own evolving style. I also created a Pinterest board to express our inner essence.
Be bold and express your inner beauty. Let’s express who we truly are together.
If you’d like to discover how to express your own inner beauty and soulful style, check out my “Spirit of STYLE” e-book for more in-depth support.
I’m so excited to share that since launching my “Spirit of STYLE” e-book last month, I just made my first donation to the Red Cross to support the typhoon victims in The Philippines. It feels like such a blessing to be able to give back to my homeland with my book inspired by my late father.
Would love for you to hear from you! Share your comments about how you express your own beauty and style.
Thanks so much to both you and Jessica for sharing your moments of inspiration. Love, love Jessica’s photos, they so reflect her true beauty with love.
Thanks, Francesca! I’m glad you enjoyed my post today. Yes, Jessica’s truly beautiful “Inner Selfies” inspired me as well. I feel so touched that my book was able to help her express the essence of who she truly is.
I have done as Jessica for so long. It seems I only enjoy finding new things to wear when I believe my weight is the”right” weight. Fluctuating a lot since my Thyroid has been removed 12 years ago, and never really having weight issues before, it has been a challenge to accept a weight and body that seems unacceptable. (emphasis on seems unacceptable). I used to revel in liking to dress in different ways . I always felt I could express my multi facets with my clothing. Now it is functionality and practicality and what feels totally comfortable. I know those can be combined with style. I have not read the book, but I would like to be inspired by it as I hear it is inspirational. Thank you Jennifer
Thank you so much for sharing, Mira! I understand the inner disconnection you can feel when your body is not “acceptable.” It’s taken me a while to make peace with my body when I was diagnosed with RA. I had trouble walking at one point. Now, I can’t really wear heels anymore. I was forced to really accept who I was beyond my physical body.
Through my journey, What I have found is that when a piece really speaks to me, it is calling something deeper inside of me. And is up to me to dig deeper and see what my soul wants to express. I see my favorite material things as a physical way for me to honor who I feel I am on the inside.
Know that you have beautiful inner spirit that deserves to be expressed. xo
Thank you, Jennifer, for bringing attention to this wonderful topic! A while back a mentor of mine suggested I get rid of 90% of my wardrobe, as I was going through a divorce and clothing carries energy. Over a period of time, I did as he suggested. I left behind the “old” Nancy and walked into my true authentic being. Choosing what I wear each day is a sacred act. In particular, I am drawn to certain colors each day and let that guide me in choosing what to wear. If I do not follow my inner guidance when dressing for the day, I inevitable feel a bit “off.” What a great reminder that all we do can be a sacred act.
Thanks for sharing, Nancy! Yes, I agree! When I don’t take the time to connect with inner myself when I get dressed, I don’t feel that deeper connection that I need to fully experience my day. My style has been truly a sacred and spiritual practice for me to know more of who I am and who I am becoming. It helps me to feel present and centered.
