Outfit of the Week: My Black Dress

The truth is I have had this dress for a while, but this is the first time I have worn it. I love the style and fit, even the details on the waist. However it felt a bit plain for me. Maybe because it's black... I know. I am different to most women ;) Anyway! I had a busy day with meetings and I wanted to be comfortable. The fabric on this dress is super stretchy.

Outfit of the Week: Buying Clothes Online

I have to admit I am not a fan of buying things online. Why? Because for me fit is everything!! So I need to ALWAYS try things on before making a decision. However, I have taken a risk a couple of times. Like this top in the photo, which had me surprisingly happy and excited because it worked. If you enjoy online shopping and keep AND wear what you get,  you don't need my advice. However, if you are not wearing what you buy or you keep returning things... let me help you out ;)

Outfit of the Week: Statement Pieces and Colour

Bright colours and accessories are two of my favourite things when it comes to well put together outfits. Understanding the colours that work best for me has changed my life. Similarly, understanding my style personality and how that reflects on my accessory selection has been amazing. There is so much more to clothes than covering your body so you don't walk around naked. However sometimes we treat our image that way.

Outfit of the Week: Feminine and Bold

This is one of my favourite jumpsuits of all times. I LOVE purple!!!  I decided to team it up with a white jacket for a keynote presentation I did a few weeks ago for a high tea here in Perth. The statement necklace adds personality and boldness to the look while still keeping it professional. A very feminine look, thanks to the style of the jacket with its flowy and frilly sleeves. The white also softens the look.

Outfit of the Week: My Latest Appearance on TV

I have been fortunate to become a media commentator for Channel 9 on their 4 pm News. Obviously I want to be on brand when I appear on TV, so I put some extra effort into thinking about what image I want to portray. The segment I participate in is a casual discussion on current topics. So I can be fully me and my opinions and background can be all on display. Yay!

Outfit of the Week: How I Wear Black

Wearing all black is without a doubt a favourite for most people. Not for me though. I actually have to put more thought into it. I like picking what I am wearing with intention. When I wear all black I feel I need a twist to make it feel more me, otherwise I will feel like I am just blending in with my outfit.

Outfit of the Week: Bling During the Day

I love everything that is blingy! I still remember in the 90's when I could put creams with glitter on my arms and chest. At least that was a thing in my mid 20's in Colombia. I love any jewelry, clothing and accessories that has bling! And NO! You don't have to save them only for the night.

My Life Suffering From Anxiety...

I am all about owning my own shit, my past and my mistakes and even the parts of me I don’t like very much. But it wasn’t always like that. I have spent most of my life feeling insecure and not enough. Feeling that something was wrong with me because I was not perfect.

Outfit of the Week: Wine Tasting in the Hills

I was in Adelaide Hills last week. It was beautiful, it reminded me a lot of the landscape in Colombia. It was freezing, but I knew it was going to be cold so I packed 4 coats and a jacket- because believe me, I feel the cold. We had a full day of wine tasting planned so I knew we were going to be in the open quite a bit, so I needed a lot of warmth.

When I Feel the Fear...I Do This!

Feel the fear and do it anyway… 

How many times have you heard this? I believe that on an intellectual level we all know it, however, it is hard to move forward when you are stuck in the emotions of your fear.

Outfit of the Week: Hiding The Extra Kilos ;)

In theory, I am trying to 'stay away from food' but I just spent a weekend in the Adelaide hills enjoying some wine. Then we went to Sydney to celebrate my in law's 50th wedding anniversary. So today IS the day I start with some brisk walks by the beach in the mornings and a more balanced diet. Wish me luck ;)

Outfit of the Week: Clothes that feel 'Me'

A few weeks ago, I talked about how a top with unique style can add so much fun to your wardrobe. Today's top is one of my favourites because of its uniqueness. 

It has an unusual print and hemline and a combination of femininity and creativity that is just perfect for my style personality. It really feels like me!

Outfit of the Week: Jacket/ Top Lengths

The lengths of tops and jackets are easily noticed because their hemlines often create contrast with the colour that you  are wearing on the bottom (unless you are wearing a monochromatic outfit). Hemlines create horizontal influences, making you appear shorter and/or wider if they are not placed at the right position.

Outfit of the Week: Versatile Items

If you are like me or many of the women I talk to, you might have found yourself in a rut of always wearing the same 'combos'. Always 'x' top with 'y' pants and the same shoes...No wonder we get bored with our wardrobe even if we own a lot of 'stuff'...

Outfit of the Week: The Right Handbag

Handbags!!! Ohh I love them. I used to change my handbag every day but now I am a bit more practical and use the same one for a longer time. However, as the weather has been cooling more down here in Australia, I felt like pulling out my orange handbag for a week.

Let's talk about flat shoes! As much as I love my heels, lets' be realistic. I can not wear them as much anymore..as my mother predicted. So very slowly, I am turning to flats more and more ;) There are a few important things to know about flat shoes:
