Issue 2: Self Discovery



Stasia Savasuk is a Personal Stylist (with a twist!) and founder of Stasia’s Style School. Her unconventional-transformation-motivational approach to style leads women of all ages and stages on an intuitive journey of letting go, knowing what they know, and embracing a life filled with confidence, courage and (inside-out) congruency. Stasia knows that changing your pants will change your life, and has ushered hundreds of women away from years of body-shaming and muffin-top jeans to a place of body acceptance and pants that fit-to-flatter. 

Stasia can be seen frolicking in the backwoods of Vermont with her two kids, wearing a skirt, big earrings, bold lipstick and the world's best accessory, a friendly smile.
