The Coat Wardrobe

24 Jul

Depending on your lifestyle and where you live, you might need a variety of coats for winter – one for everyday wear (perhaps for work), one for weekends, one for evenings out and one for extreme cold. (ie the big puffy fur lined coat I might wear to the football).

If your work coat, is the same as your going out coat, and your watching kids sport coat, and your go to the snow coat, etc, .. think about building a wardrobe of different coats for different occasions.

Coats can be expensive investment pieces, so start with the one you need and will wear the most. Then continue down the list.

I bought this one (pictured), a statement/fun coat, after I’d ticked off all the others I needed more. I like to buy myself a new coat every few years – and have a collection that I’ve had for about 20 years. (Which also includes a vintage Dior I found in an opshop, for $40 ?).

Rather than just buying stuff, (and still feeling like you have nothing to wear) think about what your wardrobe needs.

Research

7 Feb

When I’m not at a client’s home going through their wardrobe or taking them shopping, one of the things I might be doing – is research.

This could mean online searching, ringing around, calling into stores and chatting to the staff about what’s new and what’s coming in soon… and lots of trying on.

(I try on to see how things fit size wise but also to see how they look on the body – perhaps how the fabric drapes and moves- as well as how they feel.) *Comfort is a very high priority for the majority of my clients – and me!  I’ll also be looking to see how well – or not – the garment is made (despite the cost) and I’ll be sampling new season styles.

Research and preparation is done so that I can put together a suggested itinerary of stores to visit and a list of pieces to try – but also to ensure that our time together is well spent and not wasted.

Here’s me trying on pieces in Zara 🙂

The Wrap Dress

7 Aug

If you love color and like wearing patterns and you’re looking for a new dress for spring, this wrap dress is one to try and get your hands on to sample.

It doesn’t look much on the rack but looks great on.  (Providing you wear the right size) It needs to be worn snug – with great undies and bra.

Wear it with a trench and nude pumps for work or sandals and a denim jacket on the weekend.

Was $199, now $39. From here

*Like everything the wrap dress is not for everyone. Some of my clients have said they feel they are too frumpy.  However, I do always suggest that it could just be the wrap dresses they’ve tried (without me) have been the wrong fabric or fit for them. (ie not the right length, not sitting on the waist in the right place, too big, a print that is ageing, etc, etc)

According to Ines de la Fressange, a navy sweater is one of her “Magnificent Seven” basics every wardrobe must have.  (We all know – right? – that basics are the key to creating great outfits.

Here’s a little excerpt from her book, Parisian Chic, detailing why she thinks we all need one among our collection of knits.
