This photo is part of one my first photoshoots for my business...years ago! But this outfit has great points we can discuss.

Let's start with the fact that in theory, someone with a pear shape like me (hips wider than my torso) can look very unbalanced when wearing pattern (which enhances the area where it is worn) on the widest part of the body. For this reason, I only own only 3 or 4  patterned (very carefully picked) bottoms. 

The key here for pear shapes is to wear a top that has one of the colours that is in the pattern. Or like in this case, wear a top that has slimming hemline.

The pattern and the shoes are creating a low focal point (Low focal point makes you look shorter and bigger). But I am balancing it by wearing a necklace in a similar colour to the shoes.

I am also connecting the outfit from top to bottom with the colours, to create a more harmonious finish.

Top: Somewhere in Melbourne. Pants: COL. Shoes: Nine west. Necklace: not sure but was in Australia.

* (COL) means they are a Colombian brand ;)

I have just launched my NEW online program: Your WOW NOW Factor.

I want every woman to be in touch with the core essence of herself and feel confident in the way that she shows up in the world.

Knowing that confidence and beauty is an attitude, I created this program that will get you looking and feeling amazing from the inside out. This is your opportunity to stand in your power and show the world who you truly are. No more hiding, no more doubting if you are worth it!

I want to give you the tools to ensure you create a WOW NOW life and the inner confidence and stylish image that goes with it.

"The content of this program, together with Alba's vivacious delivery energy, was fabulous. It was priceless to take some time out of every day life and business to reflect on what you want, where you are going and what you could change (or need to change) to shape your life to be more of what you dream. And to create an amazing wardrobe that works for my lifestyle. What a gift to myself!

The course is filled with useful and inspirational ideas. I loved working on my time management to better manage my professional life with my life as a mum. It was an excellent course. Thanks Alba!" Stephanie Rowland
