Whether we like it or not they way we dress has a huge impact on the success of our lives. We are visual creatures and we make judgements about people, places and even food depending on how they look. We can send a very specific message depending on the type of clothing we wear.
Last September I was in Paris for work. This time was extra special to me as I was taking my mum on her first ever trip to Europe. First France, then Italy- and the Vatican! Her dream come true. But that is a story for another day ;)April to August were actually a big blur for me. With the wedding, honeymoon and readjusting to my new life, I did very little work which was reflected in my low income for those months.
Have you ever felt like you have to dress in a ‘certain way’ in order to be taken seriously at work? I have heard this so many times. Women dressing in a way they think they 'should' in order to fit in and be taken seriously. I still remember who I was and how I dressed at my first job ever- the work experience, my mum picking my outfits... painful memories.
This morning, I had a group call with my brilliant coach and the members of a high-level mastermind I am a part of. I had to wake up at 4:30 am for the call and I have a massive cold sore (read: my lip is 5 times bigger than usual) that is making me feel quite tired, edgy and flat.
I love this long top. I got it in Dubai like a million years ago. I am excited to be going there at the end of February again. The shopping was pretty good there!!
Talking dresses today! I love dresses. In all seasons. There is no easier and quicker way to get ready in the morning. One item and you are done. As we are in summer in the southern hemisphere I will talk about summer dresses, but all of these tips apply to any style of dress.
You do know there is a whole world of possibilities out there, or maybe you have forgotten. You might find it hard to justify spending time or effort on getting to know yourself better, developing more your confidence and your style. You might not have given yourself permission yet to feel and look your best...
When people first hear what I do, it’s common for them to say, “Personal Brand doesn’t matter for me”. They think that it’s only for famous people, high flyers or big corporations and that as an individual or small business owner it plays no part in their journey. But here’s the thing - everyone has a Personal Brand - the stay at home mum, the corporate lawyer, the admin person ….absolutely everyone.
As you know by now I am a true believer that you can create a fun wardrobe for work. As an expert in the science of creating First Impressions I am sharing with you how to create a credible but fun professional look.
Confession: I have had a bag of clothes waiting to be altered for 3 years...to the point that I completely forgot about what I had there. It was only when I sold my other car that I found it. The good thing was that it was like finding new clothes.
I get asked a lot about how to create casual looks that are fun and comfortable. It is so easy and there are so many ways to create casual outfits. One of my favourite casual outfits is created by wearing jeans as my basic piece.
I cannot believe it's going to be the 31st of December in 2 days from now... At this time I have always loved taking an inventory of what's happened during the year.Truth be told I have spent most of the year feeling like a loser. There is this very specific goal in one area of my life that I have felt I have let myself down in.
We are talking layering today. A super simple way to spice up and finish your outfits. Layering can be done with vests, jackets, tops with different shapes or different colours.We had a super cool day last week in the middle of summer. So I had to add a jacket to my outfit. A very casual look with flat shoes but still stylish.
Colour!!! One of my favourite topics in the world! ;) I put on this bright and bold outfit the other day. And I was wondering... are you scared of incorporating colour into your make up or outfit choices? If yes, why?
These tips are super simple yet powerful, and will help you feel more confident to approach any situation you walk into.
Who said looking good means that you have to be uncomfortable? I only wear fabrics that are stretchy and feel great on my body. I might put myself through some discomfort sometimes with shoes but that is a whole other story ;) In the end, I love looking good but I am a fan of easy, effortless, quick and definitely comfortable outfits.
Something happened last weekend that really shocked me! I was going out dancing with friends and I was looking through my wardrobe for something to wear.... and then, THE most undesirable thing happened....
I have decided to jazz things up a tiny bit today, because really? It is almost the end of another year. This is the time I start looking back and thinking about what I have or haven't achieved. However, this year I want my focus to be more about the woman I have become and less about 'the things I achieved'.
I am still in shock that it is almost December already. This year truly disappeared through my fingers. Between planning the wedding and all of the travel it just flew by.... I guess I just had too much fun!
From my conversations with many women, I have heard how there are no good clothes in their size, there are no great shops in "Perth" (change to your city ;), or there are no good colours out there at the moment... the list goes on and on with a series of excuses to justify the lack of excitement about the clothes they own.
