Come Fab Finding With Me: Public Speaking, All Eyes on Me, Yikes

I was honored when my alma mater invited me back to the old stomping grounds to speak about my experience as a fashion editor. The day is drawing near and I'm getting nervous.

Don't get me wrong — I'm delighted for the opportunity to share my knowledge with young minds, but time's a-tickin' and I haven't found the perfect outfit. I want to look fashionable, sleek, and professional. After all, I don't want to be confused for a student.

Help me find a sophisticated ensemble for my public speaking appearance. Make me proud!

This Kara by Kara Koss Gold Cuff ($565) is a great statement piece. I love the nude and gold color combination.

Let's go Fab Finding. Be sure to come back and tell me your Fab Finds are up, or just tag your Fab Finds with public speaking.

Now, you can build outfits by creating a list of clothing items. We have everything you need to build outfits, and you can use your Fab Find bookmarks, too. This is an even better way to put together an entire outfit when you are completing your Fab Finding missions.

Learn what a Fab Find is and how to make one. And here is a more detailed explanation of bookmarks from geeksugar.

I started with the cropped sleeve Phillip Lim leather blazer. When I saw this on the runway a few months ago I was amazed at how sleek a leather blazer could look. I paired it with this beautifully detailed Lela Rose dress (obviously wear the blazer unbuttoned). I love how the red will pop, but with the gray blazer it won't "shout." Then I put some diamond print tights with some beautiful Rupert Sanderson boots/sandals. I love the uniqueness of the shoes but they won't distract. End it all with a great tote with gold accents to go with your bracelet, and big enough to fit all of your notes inside! Have fun and break a leg!

Always Breathe and Talk Slow. Make eye contact and have water next to you. Don't be afraid.

I'll work out the look later, but coming from a speech team champion (Gold Medal in Impromptu speaking, back during my undergrad), I'll give you one golden piece of advice. SLOW DOWN. Everyone gets nervous when they speak, but the telling hallmark of that is that you starttalkingsuperfastandnobodycanunderstandyou. If you catch yourself running away with your words, just stop and take a breath. Look around the crowd, make eye contact with a couple people, smile. You'll be connecting with your audience, and collecting yourself. It helps!!! You'll do a great job, dear, just enjoy it!!!
