Style Confidence

I've not always had style confidence. It's something that has evolved with time. There have been days when I have lacked the confidence to pull off certain looks.

One of the things that helps to boost your style confidence is feeling good in yourself. If you feel good in yourself, you will feel good in what you wear. I honestly believe self-belief and a healthy body image makes a huge difference with what you choose to wear and how to choose to wear it.

Alongside with feeling good about yourself in order to boost your style confidence, wearing what suits you is really important. I have read a plethora of style books (stay tuned for a post about my favourites!) which explain the different body types and what clothes suit each one. When you find a style that flatters you, stick to it! Buy different colours and experiment with patterns and prints as well to add variety to your wardrobe.

Here's what I do. I find I enjoy wearing skirts and dresses more than pants as I find them to be most flattering on my body shape. I often choose A-line skirts and dresses because I know they suit me. I steer clear of anything that is too clingy or narrow. Now that I know what I like and what I feel good in, it's a no-brainer when it comes to shopping. I have even bought skirts online (my gorgeous Yeojin Bae skirt is one of them). I could never do that with pants!

In summary, believing in yourself helps your confidence , alongside having a healthy body image. Knowing what looks great on you is the final step in gaining the style confidence you need in order to rock any look you want to achieve! 

Keep being fabulous!

Yours in style,

  4. I agree whole-heartedly. Self confidence is a big key is looking fabulous. You carry yourself well and you can almost pull off any look. But I am also a big believer in dressing to suit your body shape. You don't always have to wear the latest trends if they don't suit you. If you do, you may end up looking not trendy at all if the clothing doesn't suit your body shape. Find what's best for you and work that.

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.

I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.

This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 

This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!
Yours in style

Caring for your Woollen Sweaters

It always irks me whenever a sales consultant tells me that you cannot  hand wash woollens and to follow the directions on the label. For years, I have been hand washing my knitwear and ignored the care label reading 'Dry clean'. The majority of my sweaters are made by high end designers, such as Ralph Lauren Collection and Burberry, and because they have been taken care of, still look brand new. 

Here's what I do to keep my sweaters looking fabulous. If the sweater is 100% cashmere you need to fill a small tub of lukewarm water using a small amount of Wool Mix. I ALWAYS use Martha Gardner, Eucalyptus. I wash the sweater by gently moving the garment through the water and gently squeezing the sweater, but never pulling or tugging. Then I leave the sweater in the water to soak for about five minutes (not always needed-do skip this step if the garment is not heavily soiled). Afterwards, I rinse the sweater in lukewarm water until the water comes out clear. Do not lift the swea…

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…
