#Stayingathomeinstyle

Hello! Hope you are keeping safe and healthy during this pandemic….

With our world in disarray, there is no better time to do whatever we can to stay positive: mind, soul and body

Most of us are working from home, except our medical heroes & frontline staff serving us and working to mitigate the effects of #COVID-19

As we are currently #socialdistancing, I thought to share a few practical styling tips that will brighten your day and lift your mood:

  • Wear colour at home– As Spring is upon us, wear bright beautiful colours! Colour is proven to lift our mood and make us happy.
  • Comfort is king– Wear soft breathable fabrics like wool, organic cotton, etc. that will keep you comfortable all day long! Avoid leather, polyester or any synthetic fabrics.
  • A set of co-ord loungewear is ideal for many of us attending virtual meetings. They are easy to wear, stylish and comfortable, so bag yourself a knitted co-ord set or beautiful matching pyjamas-style set.
  • Due to social distancing guidelines, I will be working remotely to facilitate virtual style consultations. I’m happy to have a FREE 20 minute chat with you or your friends via Skype or Zoom, if you’d like style advise or you are considering personal styling for Summer 2020

**Check out my #Spring2020 #stayingathome style tips!

And I’d love your help with something very special…

How to create a style that lasts a decade.

A warm welcome to February.

Yves Saint Laurent said it best: “Fashion fades, style is eternal!”

With that in mind, I have some practical style tips that will help you confidently create a timeless style that lasts a decade:

10 years in Style!
  • Embrace your Uniqueness.

You are unique; that is your power!

We live in a social media age where everyone is trying to look the same, but true beauty is being authentically you. Our quirks make us interesting. How boring would it be if we all looked the same? Accept yourself ‘flaws and all’ because perfection is a myth. Bin comparison this decade and remember; the beauty of YOU is that no one is like you; so, embrace YOU.

  • The Power of Colour

Wearing colour not only lifts your mood, it adds a beautiful natural glow to your face. Steer clear of wearing dark dreary hues that drain the colour from your face. There is a rainbow of beautiful colours that will brighten and lift your face naturally. This decade wear more colour! I promise you will look and feel better.

(To find out your best colours, have your Colours Analysed for just £99)

  • Body Beautiful

With the rise in cosmetic surgery and body ’enhancements’, there is no better time to swim against the tide and love the skin we are in. Whether you are a size 8 or 18, tall, petite, athletic, pear shaped, or curvy, you are beautiful! I have styled over three thousand people in over 12 years as a personal stylist and I am yet to meet a client I can’t style and help set on a journey of body confidence. Dressing confidently is about understanding your bodyshape and styling it in clothes that flatter and accentuate your shape.  Truth is, none of us will be how we were 20, 30 years ago or like celebrities who have assistance at their disposal. Accept and love your body as you are now. I hope the next time you look in the mirror you see how truly and uniquely beautiful you are.

  • Release!

Marie Kondo – tidying expert and author – encourages us to let go of anything that doesn’t spark joy. I’d like to add to that list: Let go of anything you haven’t worn in two years. Let go of anything that doesn’t fit or flatter you. Release clothes, shoes and accessories that no longer serve a purpose in your current lifestyle. That dress you wore when you were two sizes smaller does nothing for your confidence, so let it go! Let go of the past and embrace who you are today. We hold on to so much stuff that clutters our wardrobe taking up precious space, release them.  Our body is the only house we live in permanently. It’s so important you clothe yourself in pieces that serve you and lift your spirit. Let go and release anything that doesn’t. Less is truly more!

(To have your wardrobe decluttered, book a Wardrobe Detox consultation today)

  • Invest.

True style is timeless. Invest in quality pieces you can wear for at least 5 to 10 years. Durable pieces you can wear again and again that don’t date or fall apart.

Timeless pieces are kinder to the environment, because when you buy well, you buy less; which increases the cost per wear.

Avoid fast fashion, its disposable and the quality and manufacturing isn’t kind.

This decade I encourage you to; Invest in yourself – Invest in your style.

Stay safe and stylish in the sunshine

Summer holiday essentials

Hello, hope you are enjoying the glorious sunshine…

With more than 2 days of consecutive sunshine; I think we might be in for a treat this summer!

So, whether you are home or away on holiday this summer, here are a few handy holiday tips to keep you safe and stylish in the sunshine.

  • Sunglasses: Protect your eyes in the sunshine with a super cool pair of sunnies. Ensure your sunglasses cover the width of your face and they are UV and anti-glare compliant.
  • Wear a fabulous sun hat: Whether it’s a small panama or an oversized beach hat, it’s essential to protect yourself when the sun peaks between 12noon and 4pm. Side note: a massive beach hat has an air of mystery and sophistication; so, go for it!
  • Wear natural fabrics: Avoid wearing manmade fabrics in this heat. Invest in breathable fabrics such as 100% cottons and linen to stay cool and fresh in the heat. They allow the skin to breathe and minimise sweating through your clothes.
  • Basket bags: Swap your leather bags for an easy breezy weaved, wicker or basket bag. They are lighter and don’t conduct heat like leather bags.
  • Flip flops: Ensure your flip flops and slippers have ridges under the sole. This gives you grip, so you don’t slip or fall around the wet pool area.

Fashion versus Style!

As a Personal Stylist, I am an avid believer that style trumps fashion.  And so with London Fashion week 2019 in full swing, I’d love to shed some light on the differences between fashion and style.

  • Fashion is fleeting. Style is timeless.
  • Fashion says wear what’s on trend (even if it doesn’t suit you). Style says wear what flatters you.
  • Fashion says follow what everyone is wearing. Style says be unique and wear what suits your lifestyle and personality.
  • Fashion says buy it all! Style says be selective, create a capsule wardrobe of clothes you can wear numerous ways.
  • Fashion says wear it for a season. Style says wear it for years!
  • Fashion says wear this seasons colour. Style says find out your best colours and wear them.
  • Fashion says wear those uncomfortable shoes. Style says comfort is king!
  • Fashion says wear it even if it’s not you. Style says wear what makes you happy.

Fashion certainly has its place…..but for a timeless, flattering wardrobe of clothes that suit you; style always wins!

BBC…3R’s

Hello, I hope this year has started off well for you.
I had the honour of being invited to the BBC to share my nuggets on how to improve our style this year….
How we dress matters, it not only affects how we feel about ourselves but how we are perceived. Stats tell us that first impressions are made within 4 seconds of meeting a person.
For a winning style personally or professionally, here are my 3 R’s to improving your style this year:
Review. Release. Restyle.
 
Review!
 Most of us are “creatures” of habit, we tend to wear the same looks year in year out. We aren’t aware of what suits us, so we are inclined to stay within our comfort-zone.
Our trained personal stylist will empower you with skills for life by Reviewing your colours and bodyshape. We will equip you with how to wear colours that give your skin a natural youthful glow. We also teach you clothing styles that best flatter and complement your bodyshape and proportions.

Step out of your comfort zone and let us Review what complements you best with

 
Release!
In nearly 11 years of styling clients and decluttering thousands of wardrobes, I’ve only seen 2 client wardrobes that weren’t overflowing with clothes. And ironically most of us only wear only 20% of our bulging wardrobes….
Are you hanging onto all those clothes for nostalgic reasons? Clothes that no longer fit or flatter you? Or perhaps they are dated or ill-fitting?
We will help you Release clothes in your wardrobe that don’t make you look or feel good.
Clear your space by booking a Wardrobe detox consultation and we will help you embrace a flattering capsule wardrobe this year:
Restyle!
Majority of us tend to wear clothing styles we are familiar with day in day out, which leaves little room for inspiration. Our personal stylists  Restyle you by exploring and injecting something different into your wardrobe this year.
We save you time, stress and ensure you don’t waste money on clothes that do nothing to uplift you.

Try someone NEW! Restyle and make a great impression this year by booking some  Personal Shopping with us this season.
