Toe Cleavage

13 Jun

Toe Cleavage

“Toe cleavage is the partial exposure of a woman’s toes in shoes that are cut low enough at the vamp. Low cut shoes reveal toe cleavage similar to how low cut tops reveal breast cleavage”. (Wikipedia)

Yep, it’s a thing!

Shoe designer Manolo Blahnik said, “The secret of toe cleavage, a very important part of the sexuality of the shoe; you must only show the first two cracks”

I have clients who would never wear a shoe where you can see the cracks of the toes and others who like it. I’m with Manolo, I don’t mind a subtle hint. .

What do think about toe cleavage? Here’s what I think.

Too much…

Double denim

27 Mar

Double denim

I was chatting with a friend recently about double denim. She told me she likes it, but every time she tries it it never feels right. She was wondering what she was doing wrong. I thought I’d share with you, what I told her..


Try wearing different shades of denim together.. AND 
Make sure you break up the denim with an interesting shoe, belt, bag, jacket, jewellery, etc. (Even makeup and nail color can do the trick) *If it doesn’t feel sophisticated enough, it could be how you’re accessorising.

Also make sure the denim is a modern style. If you’re wearing something that could be outdated it may make you feel you’re stuck in the 80’s or 90’s. .

If the denim feels too much, try wearing your jeans, skirt or shorts with something chambray (which will be softer) on top. .

..and of course make sure the denim pieces are flattering. (Jackets with drop shoulders or shirts with big pockets on the bust are not the best options for everyone)

I also suggested to her that perhaps she likes the look on other people but it’s just not for her. If it feels uncomfortable when she wears it, it might not be her style. .

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..

You Don’t Have To Wear Color If You Don’t Want To

Don’t let anyone tell you you “should” or “need” to wear more color. It’s perfectly fine (and in fact chic) to only wear grey, black, white, camel, beige, cream or navy.

Always wear what makes you feel authentic and confident.

Don’t ever feel pressured to wear anything that isn’t you…and your style.

Just make sure you keep it interesting and stylish with textures, shapes, fit and decoration.
