Yesterday was epic for me. 💫 Ironically, that video of the little girl calling herself ugly went viral two days before my talk at The Women Who Roar Conference by @thefemalecollaborative_ about imposter syndrome. For me personally, my battle with #impostersyndrome came from childhood insecurities which stemmed from name calling and torment about my complexion. My childhood was awful. I didn't like myself for the first 20 years of my life. It was therapeutic for me to stand in front of a room full of women and share my story and how I am overcoming #impostersyndrome in addition to healing that wounded little girl. 💥 The work is constant. Nevertheless, I am who I say I am ... #onperiod 🙌🏿 Thank you @thefemalecollaborative_ for having me and allowing me to share. It felt amazing! #WomenWhoRoar2020 #thefemalecollaborative #vaingloriousbrides #selinahoward

You know we always wear black when working but my babes @tiarramonet insisted that I was a "guest" and had to be in dress code. I didn't realize we both had Swiss Dot vibes 😩... In any case, @vtabi_official nailed it and nude undergarments is next level under your #bridalrobe #imtryingtotellyou #yaheardme #styled by #vaingloriousbrides #selinahoward #bridalstylist #bridalfashionstylist #bridalstylistmatter #getyouone #weddinginspiration #weddingplanner #instawedding #instagood #apooleoflove . . .

When @IAmVictoriaJenn told me about the Women Who Roar Summit hosted by her not for profit, @TheFemaleCollaborative_ and the type of experience this event creates for power women looking to accelerate their growth and expand their network, I was ecstatic because I know so many women that need "No BS" advice and intel they can apply immediately to their lives. When she asked me to speak at the Summit, it was an easy yes! We’re dropping gems! Make sure you’re in the building March 6-7, and kick off Women's History Month with a bang in #NewYork . RSVP: www.TheFemaleCollaborative.com/Events  #WomenWhoRoar2020

I am so grateful for all of my clients and how they trust me with one of the most important elements of their wedding experience... THE DRESS. We would love for everything to be 100% perfect but life happens and you have to adapt and adjust accordingly. With just about a month away from #apooleoflove we didn't have dresses for Tiara. We started the custom process last year but made a very hard but necessary decision to pivot (with a plan A, B, and C in place of course ) and start the process over again. Divine order and dignity above all else was priority here. Tiarra and I agreed that was non-negotiable and moved on. Nevertheless, no bride left behind is my motto, we get shit done by any means necessary like Malcolm and we never lost a passenger like #harriettubman #seewhatididthere #itsblackhistorymonth Thank you @tiarramonet thank you for your unwavering support and loyalty to me and VB. I love you sissy. 💖 Buckle up buttercup, it's going to be insane!!! #styled by #vaingloriousbrides #selinahoward #bridalstylist #bridalfashionstylist #bridalstylistmatter #getyouone

Flashing back on a Friday to @makiniregaldesigns in @leahdagloria and #jamwiththemartins ... We selected the perfect shade of cocoa for Makini's nude illusion lining. The goal was an illusion - not literally nude. It was perfection. 💫 This iconic gown is still available at @shopvainglorious #vaingloriousbridestheboutique . . . #styled by #vaingloriousbrides #selinahoward #bridalstylist #bridalfashionstylist #bridalstylistmatter #getyouone #weddinginspiration #weddingplanner #instawedding #instagood #FlashbackFriday Photography @Amyanaizphoto Planning @elleaudreynewyork Hair @nicky_b_on_hair Makeup @kingmalimagic Earrings @petitedelights

Happy Saturday and welcome to all of our new followers!! I am Selina Howard-owner, lead bridal stylist, and creative director here at Vainglorious Brides. We provide bridal fashion styling for the modern bride. It's been an interesting journey defining our niche in the wedding market and to hear exactly how we got started and what it is we do check out @beforethebigdaypodcast episode 18. I go into more detail about the purpose and importance of a bridal stylist. #bridalstylistsmatter #getyouone 😉 As a natural progression and after approximately 6 years of bridal styling, we opened our own bridal gown boutique in Atlanta @shopvainglorious where we utilize our experience on the shopping side to curate a unique dress buying experience for brides with less overwhelm and more love and guidance in selecting the perfect dress. If you are in the market for the perfect dress visit us, you won't be disappointed! . . . Four personal facts about me: 1. I have a BS in Health and Physical Education and I was a PE teacher for almost 15 years. Lots of my students follow me, I love my babes. 🤗🤗 2. I am married with 4 kids and 1 granddaughter. My fur baby just transitioned yesterday and my heart is 💔 3. I am an #eclecticgoddess ( @theeclecticgoddess ) and herbal alchemist. I believe that we have ability and power to heal ourselves. #blackgirlmagic literally 💫🧿 4. Jamaica is my favorite destination been there 13 times! . . .
