Spring-Summer 2019 Trends

Have you been following the Fashion blogs for the Spring-Summer 2019 Trends and colors?


The four major fashion capitals of the world are New York, London, Milan and Paris and each city holds fashion shows twice a year.
There is always a big fuss about the Fashion shows and new collections.

So much work is involved for thousands of professionals in the fashion industry. However, in terms of fashion shows, each designer has approximately 10 minutes to show his/her collection with compelling elements that will inspire, excite so that the main trends of his/her collection will be remembered. So it has to be dramatic and theatrical!

As we can see, the Spring-Summer 2019 trends will be joyful, uplifting and bold with 12 top stand out colors and 4 classic foundation neutrals. From neons to pastels, bold and rich hues that are almost autumnal as well as earth tones for sophistication and simplicity.

How To Find The Perfect Jeans

How to find the perfect jeans - Denim

Everyone can look amazing in jeans if they find the right fit to feel confident and beautiful. Over the years, denim has evolved into the most versatile item of clothing in your closet. Every woman needs a great pair of denim, the indispensable wardrobe item. It is a challenge to find the perfect pair and many factors come into play. So once you have found the brand and style, stick to it. You will feel like a new woman. Herewith a few tips on how to find the perfect jeans.

= The stretch enables the jean to hug you in all the right places. It also allows jeans to rebound better after multiple wearings without the binding of a non-stretch. I cannot believe we wore denim without stretch! I prefer a 1 to 2% stretch for comfort. If there is too much stretch, the fibers with the wash and wears will eventually loosen up and you will get saggy jeans.

What Is Your Idea Of Sexy?

What is your idea of sexy

What is your idea of sexy?  You don’t have to put it all out there to feel sexy and attractive.
I believe it is about attitude more than clothing. You can look amazingly sexy in a turtle neck sweater and a knee length pencil skirt or a white tee shirt and pair of jeans.

My Do’s and Don’ts of appearing Sexy!

1 – Confidence
Confidence is very attractive. A woman who knows her worth and is comfortable with her life choices exudes confidence.

2 – Only show off your very best feature. If you have great legs, show them off appropriately. If you like your shoulders or your chest, show off a bit of cleavage or wear a cold shoulder top

Showing off too much is really a turn off for most people and showing everything at once would definitely label you!

3 – Always be age appropriate.
If you are over 60 and you are wearing a mini skirt or showing off too much cleavage, you will be labeled as ignorant of fashion and social rules.
Perhaps more importantly, You will not attract the right and positive people in your life.

4 – FIT is everything
You can make a cheap garment look expensive but a tight dress or skirt in which you are bulging is never attractive. It can accentuate lumps and bumps and lacks sophistication.

Is Age Just A Number?

is age just a number

Is age just a number? How young or old someone feels really has an influence on their health and how people view them. I would say the contrary is also true. If you are unhealthy at a younger age, you will tend to feel older than you are and run down.

An article published in the Perspectives on Psychological Science suggests that feeling young can actually make you look young and have the health of a younger person too.

I believe in the Mind over Body concept. Research proves this over and over again. Age depends more on temperament and health. I have known young people to be “old”!  Read the rest of this entry

Self-Confidence

Self-confidence

What does Self-Confidence mean to you?

Have you ever thought of who you really wanted to be? Have you visualized your life, your profession, your friends, what you would be wearing, how you would feel? How would others treat you?

Self-Confidence is really the key. Some may have difficulty believing it but I was more of an introvert and very reserved. I was always very impressed by confident people. They were so bold, outgoing and driven. So confident of their self worth, appearance and abilities. It is a very attractive trait and draws like-minded people to you. I have had to really work on this because it became a handicap for me, in my professional as well as in my personal life. Read the rest of this entry

How To Control Your Image

How to control your image

Our image is a tool to position ourselves both professionally and personally. It speaks long before people get to know you. It is important to learn how to control your image.

Did you know that only 7% of communication is verbal and we are evaluated by the image we project. Assumptions are made within 30 seconds, from our appearance. So much can be revealed;

= Our abilities and successes

= Social status

= Our wealth & education

= Your mood & character

= And our Self Worth

Always start with the goal in mind. Who are you and How do you want to be perceived? What are your likes and dislikes?  Read the rest of this entry

On Line Wardrobe Consultation

Online Wardrobe Consultation

Why would you need the Online Wardrobe Consultation? You may have questions about your wardrobe, an unorganized closet or you are overwhelmed by the shopping experience. You are too busy or located remotely or perhaps not as comfortable with a one on one consultation. Then the “On Line Wardrobe Consultation” is for you!

How it works;

We will have a skype meeting to discuss your needs and create a plan, whether you need:

  • Advice and recommendations for an event
  • A Style Assessment, defining your body type, what best to wear for your shape and lifestyle
  • A closet editing
  • To learn how to create outfits with your existing wardrobe
  • What to wear to a special event

Most women when shopping for clothes make the same mistakes, buy the same colors, not necessarily the ones that suit them, the same styles, not always adequate for their body shape and clothes that don’t fit their lifestyle nor activities. They have a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear. You’ve certainly heard the saying, “80% of women wear 20% of their wardrobe. If this is you, you are wasting time, money and closet real estate!

I can help you to save time, stress less and save money in the long run. My goal is that my customers love and wear 100% of their wardrobe. Wouldn’t you like to transform your closet into your own “Personal Boutique”with the elements needed for all the events of your life?

Find the Perfect Moto Jacket

This season, Motorcycle Jackets have become very cool, with fresh colors, zippers, studs and contrasting sleeves.

The Moto Jacket will add interest to any outfit. It is often worn open and fitted. However, as with any jacket, make sure when purchasing it that you are able to close it, without it looking too tight.

You can find them in rich leather but also faux leathers equally chic and less costly. Be careful with “plastic” looking fabrics. They are not attractive, look cheap and do not wear well.

Marlon Brando made the black leather and jeans iconic in 1953. The Moto Jacket has a masculine look so it could be paired with more feminine and luxurious fabrics such as chiffon, velvet, brocade and silk.

There are many varieties, colors and textures. Choose a jacket to suit your personality and existing wardrobe.
