How To Remodel A Blazer

9 Aug

There’s several things that can be done to blazers to remodel them. Some are small(ish) jobs and some are major. (Ie expensive).

Here’s a few..

Lapels can be reshaped
They can be changed from three button, to two. (Sometimes)
Sleeves can be shortened or lengthened.
Shoulders can be reshaped. (Big job!)
They can be shortened. 
Taken in… or let out.

And then of course there’s buttons. I changed the buttons on this one (above) – which I talk about here

If you have a blazer that you think might be looking a bit outdated, or not fitting quite right (but still in great condition) – take it to a good tailor to see what they can do. (This is a jacket I recently had re-modeled)

How I Make A Shirt Feel Feminine

19 Jul

How I Make A Shirt Feel Feminine

Shirts, particularly of the gingham variety, can feel a bit masculine. (Initially when I tried this one on – wearing my sneakers – I felt like somewhere between Farmer Brown and some of my old male colleagues at the bank on casual Friday’s) It would need some styling…

To make shirts like this work for me so that I feel feminine wearing them (which is important for me), I might do the following…

Show some skin. 
Add some delicate jewellery
Tuck in to something high waisted (to give me some shape)
Wear a pretty bra
Wear heels 
Maybe red lipstick

Not everything you try on in a change room will instantly feel like it works. It might need other bits and pieces to accompany it. The right shoe, accessory or clothing item. Or it might just need scrunching, rolling or even tucking.  #tweaking

Shirt – Muji
Jeans – Levis
Shoes – Jo Mercer
Watch – Daniel Wellington

How To Wear Knee High Boots With Jeans

19 Jun

We know that knee high boots are a big trend at the moment – particularly with skirts and dresses (see here) – but what about with jeans?

Well.. some would suggest the look is passe, but I’m ok with it, in fact I like it and that’s probably because I’m a fan of 70’s and 70’s influenced, fashion. .

The thing to watch though, is that your jeans and boots (heels or flats) look modern – otherwise the look can be a bit daggy and dated. (Think very low rise jeans with mid calf, square toe boots) .

In this pic (above) my boots are actually over a decade old, but they are still a modern (slouchy) style – so I think I can get away with them.

(Note also that I’m wearing my boots with skinny-ish jeans so that they’re clean through the knee (ie not all baggy and bunching) .

If you’re unsure whether your boots are modern or outdated, consider booking in for a Wardrobe Overhaul and I’ll help you. You can find the details here

Here’s a few more photos for inspiration..

How To Put Together A Sexy Outfit

21 Nov

In the past couple of weeks two of my regular clients have asked me to help them find something “sexy” to wear.

One contacted me saying “Help! I’ve got a wedding to go to and I need to look hot. My ex-husband is going to be there with his new girlfriend” and the other was ready to start embracing her curves, by accentuating her lovely figure and wear something less conservative than she was used to.

The first thing I asked both of them was – When it comes to clothes, what makes you feel sexy?

(One, after some prompting from me knew what it was, and the other had no idea, which meant we had to do lots of sampling of different things til she figured it out).

Everyone has their own idea of what sexy is and what makes you feel that way when you’re wearing it. For some, it’s a pretty soft flowy dress with just a subtle hint of skin, for others it might be a figure hugging and/or revealing (perhaps Kardashianesque) outfit and for others like me, it’s my favourite perfume, pretty lingerie, a great pair of jeans and heels.

(And for some, it’s not important at all…)

Whether it’s “funky”, “edgy”, “trendy”, “cool” or “sexy”, that you’re wanting to achieve, you need to figure out what that word means to you first. Keeping in mind that it’s not just about how you look, but more importantly how you feel. Because when you feel it, you’ll also exude it..
