How many accessories is “too” many?

How many accessories is “too” many? Is there really such a thing?
I have two answers in this video for you……

On one side, I’d “no”. It depends on your personality and confidence. If you feel confident on who you’re and have a dramatic/ creative / exuberant personality; accessorising in a big way would resonate with you. At the end of the day you have to stay true to yourself. And when you dress and accessorise from that place of authenticity and self-expression it can be so liberating, exciting and inspiring to others.

And on the other side, I’d say “yes”. However, that’s my personal opinion. It doesn’t mean that’s the right or wrong answer. I resonate the most with simplicity and less is more. When people over-accessorise all of the sudden its seems to me that the accessories are starting to own them; rather than them owning the accessories /the look.

Does this make sense? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share your insights in the comment below.

How to Get Out of your Style Rut

After having kids and not knowing much about myself I got stuck in a style rut. It wasn’t that hard to get out of that disempowering state. By exploring the following areas I become more confident and empowered and gradually I got my style mojo back:

=> Learning about myself (body shape, proportions and personality)

=> Understanding my colours

=> De-cluttering/ Refreshing my wardrobe

Recognising that you are in a style rut is the first step to climbing your way out of it. Then it’s about prioritising yourself to the top of your list (even if it’s 5 minutes a day) and allowing yourself some exploration time in regards to who you are, what you like/dislike, value and appreciate in clothes, and then put into practice some new tips you pick along the way.

B watching this video (click picture above) and practising the tips I share here, you can too get your style mojo back. And remember that I’m here to support you, so any questions please ASK!

 

 

Chunky/Statement Accessories: Yes or No?

In the video below I share the styling tips & tricks to rock those chunky or statement accessories not matter your body shape or size.

There are two things that I’d consider when wearing chunky or big accessories:

Consider Your Body Frame. If you’re a:

  • Small scale: choose small to medium accessories (still chunky but in proportion to your small scale frame)
  • Medium scale: any size accessory will work for you. However, if you’re short stick with small to medium accessories since large ones can make you look shorter.
  • Large scale: choose medium to large accessories.

Think about balance. If you’re wearing an outfit that is big and voluminous, keep accessories to minimal. If you’re wearing something sleeker mundane or neutral in colour, go for a little bigger and bolder with a chunky cocktail ring or big, bright handbag. You don’t want them to compete with each other.

If you have any questions or if there is any topic in particular that you’d like me to talk about it please let me know……..

How to break fashion rules with Accessories

If the colour of your new dress doesn’t compliment your skin, if the neckline of your top makes you look wider or if your cropped jacket shortens your torso it’s time to learn how to accessorise to make your garments and colours work for you.

Yes, accessories can add a pop of colour to your outfits, interest and also a touch of your personality to your looks.

However, there is more that we can do with accessories; we can bring balance to our body, elongate legs, lengthen our torso, soften our shoulders and much more. This is what I covered in today’s video.

I’d love to hear your thoughts when it comes to accessorising. If you have any specific questions, please let me know because I can do a Q&A just for you!

How to Build Your Best Wardrobe

It’s so refreshing to open your wardrobe and find a clutter-free zone, filled with everything you need and nothing you don’t. Because I truly DO NOT believe that more choice means better options and greater satisfaction. It actually creates anxiety and limits creativity.

In today’s video I share with you two formulas that I personally use and I also share with my clients when it comes to building a new wardrobe, downsizing or refreshing your wardrobe. These two formulas are: the SAP Formula (Staples-Accent-Pop) and the 20/80 well-balanced wardrobe formula.

Any questions, please let me know. If you implement any of these formulas, I’d love to hear about you. Thanks

Your Clothing Personality Unlocked

Our personality is often a strong indicator of what type of style suits us best.

We normally are a combination of 2 or 3 personalities when dressing or choosing an outfit. It’s ok if you feel that you don’t have a particular style; this is very common. It’s definitely within you, however because of different circumstances in life such as motherhood, weight fluctuations, career change and lifestyle you may have lost that sense of style and confidence on choosing things that represent who you are. Or perhaps you’ve never paid much attention to your beauty, image and appearance and how clothing and accessories communicate a message.

When you get clarity about who you really are from the inside out, identify the fabrics, details, textures and colours that make you feel great, know your body shape and how to dress it; then putting an outfit together and shopping gets easier and easier.

So, you can click the image below to watch this week video and get ready to unlock Your Clothing Personality.

 

Your True Colours

Colours can re-energise you and make you feel lighter and more vibrant. Colours can put you in a happy and positive mood. This is exactly what we need when we’re dressing every day, when we’re connecting with new people or when we’re networking and talking to potential clients and collaborators. My intention with this video is to inspire you to wear more colours and to teach you how to choose your true colours. Colours can also make you stand out and shine and this is something that we need to be ok with.  Not allowing yourself to wear colours that look amazing on you is like playing really small. It’s like allowing your fears and worries to dictate how you’re going to show up in the world.

Click the photo below to watch the video where you can see me I’m in full action playing with some metallic drapes 🙂 and where you can learn about Your True Colours…………….

And remember that you’ll find lots of practical information in the soon-to-be-launched book “Dear Confidence: Unleashing your Personal Style & Brand”.

Bring out your best body features

Last week I did my 2nd Facebook Live Video in preparation to the launch of the Book “Dear Confidence: Unleashing your Personal Style & Brand”. I talked about understanding our body shape so we can choose garments  and accessories that bring balance to our body.

This is a very powerful approach to dress your shape because it moves your attention away from “what size you are” to “how to bring out your best body features”. Most of us have been dressing only following external conditionings, such as sizes.  We haven’t learnt to dress following our internal guidance, understanding our body features and proportions and few other personal values. It’s time now to get our power back………

I uploaded this video in youtube so you get the chance to watch it at any time. As per the photo below, in this video I do my own body shape analysis. Watch it and you can do yours and if you haven’t got your “Body Shape Blueprint”, please hit reply and ask me for your copy.

Book “Dear Confidence” Launch – Only 6 weeks to go!

March is nearly gone and it makes me realise that there are only 6 weeks left until the launch of my book.

It’s also now a time for reflection. I struggled with my confidence for a long time. However, today I feel a confident and an empowered woman. I also feel that it’s important to talk about this subject.

The moment we feel confident and experience that sense of getting our power back; our lives, family and professional relationships and our connection with the world changes for the better. We start to feel that we’re shining our lights……

Please, let me share with you how I did it xx
