I am going to share with you today my favourite outfit formula! Let's get right into it!
My business turned 8 years old this week! I can not believe it! I have gone through so much in this time. I must say I am pretty proud of my commitment to growth and happiness. It has not come easy... on the contrary it's often been the opposite. But with persistence everything is possible ;)
It is no secret that your image speaks volumes about you. How you dress sends a silent message to people and they will form an impression of you based on what they see. The outfits below, for example, are all professional and very feminine. They are in soft colours. They create a contrast level that is low (at least the top part), as all the colours are close to each other in intensity.
There is no secret to this. People connect with other people they like and trust. Your presence is the energy you bring with you when you walk into a room. It will determine if people like you or not and it will affect the results you get in life and business. But how can you create a presence that is authentic and has you being remembered?
Did you know that people will form an impression of you within the first 3 seconds of meeting you? Crazy, I know! Either we like it or not this is the reality. Studies suggest that 55% of that first impression is created based on what we see (your clothes and body language), 38% based on how you sound-tone and volume and our words take just 7%
I get asked by my clients all the time about how to dress for a night out. So I decided to share some ideas today.In this picture I was in Miami reunited with my kindergarten friend (left) and her sister last December. Yes, we've been friends for 35 years ;)
In my life and my business, I am all about being genuine and authentic. I know that having a magnetic personality makes things flow easily for you in your life and business. Being nice doesn’t only feel great, but brings more nice things to your life. What we put out comes back at us
It took me years to understand this.When I first moved to Australia I noticed pretty quickly that I was different. I sounded different, I looked different, I think differently. And believe me I did not like it. It took me years, and starting a business to realise that what makes me different makes me memorable! And that is a good thing.
Being scared of being judged and criticised gets in the way of us fully sharing with the world who we are. We have an epidemic way of thinking that we are not good enough – even if we think it secretly at times.When you get comfortable and feel happy with who you are and what makes you unique, how you feel and how people perceive you, you can be transformed in no time.
One of the most important things to think about when clothes shopping is your budget. Deciding when to spend less or when to be a bit more generous with yourself. You obviously want a wardrobe full of amazing pieces. The key here is to know which garments are worth paying more for and which ones to skimp on. So here it is... when the mix of inexpensive and chic pieces becomes important.
In my conversations with women from different backgrounds, ages and positions I hear that there is a common feeling of thinking they are not being taken seriously enough. Some think they look too young, or that they are too feminine or soft, or that nobody is seeing how capable they are, or that they don’t know how to power dress, or how to present themselves with confidence. Bottom line, they don’t feel fully heard and respected.
I wore this outfit at an event in Paris, as part of the business and coaching training I am doing. We get together 4 times a year for a live event. We are more than 200 women flying from all over the world! It's pretty amazing! Anyway, it is always fun to pick out awesome outfits to attend these events in. The day before I wore the outfit I wore was so uncomfortable all day! The pants were so tight! So it was super exciting to be wearing this very comfortable dress.
I like looking good when I travel. But believe me I value comfort more than anything. So the good news is that it is possible to be comfortable and look good. I know! It's a complete revelation, or at least for most of my clients.
Outfits that have light and dark colour combinations create a feeling of being confident, inspiring and stimulating.I love black and white combinations, especially when I add a statement piece. My necklace creates more of a statement than the photo shows ;)
Since my corporate days I have developed a great love for jackets. They are so versatile and can go anywhere from super casual to very dressy, from loose and unstructured to fitted and structured.
I am not a huge fan of patterns, but this geometric style caught my attention. My dramatic style personality doesn't find patterns very attractive. I am more of a solid colour and statement accessory lover.
This is a new top I bought recently and I really enjoy wearing it. I pair it with black jeans and black boots and I love the resulting look.I do find it quite a dark outfit though so I like to add a statement necklace. You can see from the photo the necklace is very bright and full of colour. It expresses me perfectly and adds a lot of fun to the outfit.
In answer to your questions, I am sharing some ideas on how to dress when you are tall and slim.

I have wanted a jumpsuit since I was 15. They come in and out of fashion but every time they are 'in' I have wanted to get one.The problem: The fit with my pear body shape. (My hips are wider than my torso is).
Most jumpsuits have huge pockets or elastic waists that just make my hips look huge. I had one before that had pattern below the waist and I actually loved that jumpsuit.
