Oprah offers advice to younger self

Oprah has been an advocate for women and men around the world for more than 20 years. Although she is a strong, confident lady now, it certainly wasn't always the case. BET reports that Oprah's May issue of her O Magazine is all about embracing yourself, she even writes an open letter to her 19-year-old self.

"You've spent too many days and years trying to please others and be what they wanted you to be," Oprah writes to herself in the upcoming edition.

BET reports seventeen other celebrities wrote open letters to their younger selves including actress Octavia Spencer, Whoopi Goldberg and Katie Couric.

Aside from offering up advice, Oprah is always showing women young and old how to dress for their bodies. Recently, she discussed wearing sassy striped blazers on her Oprah.com website, to match the fashion with hip hop clothes, party dresses or a pair of jeans.

According to Oprah, the key to rocking stripes right is to keep all other pieces simple, though feel free to add a fun scarf or a pair of fresh kicks or platform pumps to help bring out your personality.
