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.
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'...
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:
Did you know that the best necklines for you will depend on your face shape, neck length and the balance you need to create with your torso and your hips?
When creating a work wardrobe, most women use black by default. If you are one of them you might think it is easier, but trust me adding colour is so easy when you wear a lot of black and it can totally transform the way you feel. And you still look professional!
I love comfort above anything else when it comes to dressing up. I know...the shoes...maybe that is the bit I sacrifice at times. I LOVE heals. I remember a time when my mum used to tell me that at some point in my life I was not going to be able to walk around all day in my super high heels...I just thought she didn't know what she was talking about... turns out, mum was right...
Believe me, there is nothing complicated about picking out an outfit in a few minutes! But I understand you might think differently. When you expect your wardrobe to work by some art of magic without having planned it, you are going to end up feeling very disappointed.
Winter is now in full swing in Australia. I do not enjoy the cold weather, except for that initial part when I get myself familiar with my forgotten winter wardrobe! It is always exciting to find things I didn't even remember owning or that I bought at the end of the last winter and are brand new.
I woke up this morning to an email from a client. I was literally left in tears (happy ones) after reading it...You know, some days I wonder if I am good enough, if I am making the biggest difference I want to be making in peoples' lives...if...if...Then every single time I receive a 'sign' from God and the universe that reaffirms I am on the right path. I grew up Catholic, but I don't think I ever understood spirituality.
I have mentioned before how much I love jumpsuits. But for many years I didn't own a single one... I just could not find one that worked for my body type. However, I persisted, I was determined to find one that worked for me. And with jumpsuits coming back in fashion in the last few years I started finding more suitable silhouettes.
I love my dresses! They are so easy to wear. And they can be so versatile, especially when combined with jackets.
I totally love black jeans, they are so versatile! You can easily dress them up or down. As I have mentioned before the darker the jeans the more dressy the outfit will look, however, even if dark, ripped jeans will always be more casual.
Last week I was in Cannes, attending an event with my mastermind partners and coach. 4 intense days of training, learning and up- leveling! So much fun! But to kick off the event we started with a soiree and the theme was red carpet Hollywood. I was so excited about the theme as it just seems right to dress up when you are in the French Riviera
By now you know how much I love jackets and heels. I truly enjoy dressing up and looking professional. However, the idea of traditional black suits and white blouses just make me choke... too plain for my dramatic style personality.
I have always been a fan of denim shirts with jeans, however, I have to confess that I have never been able to pull it off in a way that I love... until a few weeks ago. I even wore my denim shoes!
Let me ask you, are you a woman who wears a lot of black?
You might think it's easy... but the truth is, if most of what you own in your wardrobe is black and white, you can easily get bored with your clothes...Today, would love to share with you some super simple ideas on how you can add more colour and start feeling more YOU when you get dressed in the morning!
I LOVE jackets! They have such a great ability to transform an outfit in a second. I like styles that are comfortable, versatile but a bit dressy. It is all about making my clothes be an expression of who I am!
I rarely wear flowery patterns because they are too soft for my 'dramatic' style personality.
It is so important to understand your style personality, it will save you so much time and money when shopping.
I love wearing jeans, especially now as the weather is starting to cool down (At least in the southern hemisphere ;) One of the greatest things in fashion trends over the past few years is that jeans are so much more fun than they used to be.
