Advanced Style Video: Debra and Tziporah on The Healing Power of Style

[Video By Lina Plioplyte for Advanced Style]

The other day I talked briefly about The Healing Power Of Style and how style and dressing up can be used to elevate the spirit. Debra and Tziporah feel that through self expression and the art of dressing up they are bringing joy to themselves and others around them. Debra always says that Fashion is fun and that creativity is healing. My mom and grandmother always encouraged me to express myself and be creative and Debra and Tziporah inspire me to continue to live a life filled with art, beauty and self expression. I hope they inspire you as well. Remember you can email Debra at . Not only is she a fabulous artist but an amazing Reflexologist as well!

  • as Coco Chanel once said, Clothes can be bought, style one must possess – your blog is so cool and once you have style, it never goes away!!

  • These two fabulous ladies are really what fashion is all about; artistically expressing yourself through dress.

    It's hard to stay grounded working in the fashion industry so when I see people like this, it renews my love for the art.
    It also validates my decision to stay in this completely insane industry.

    Thx for posting!

  • I have been waiting my entire life to see this. I am going to write this down and keep it with me whenever someone disses style as superficial or materialistic. All 3 of your moms deserve some major props here. I am posting this on my blog. Pink hair forever!!!!

  • Great video. I couldn't agree more with their message: authentic self-expression IS healing and makes the world a more beautiful place.

  • Great to see you, Debra and Tziporah, in this delightful format. Congrats to both of you!
    You reminded me to dress up more.
