It's that time of year, the season's are
a-changing! So, it's time for me to remind you to review and clearout your wardrobe!
I've been busy this month making progress on
some projects I've had in mind for a while. It's very satisfying to
finally see some of my plans coming to life!
The biggest project I'm working on is an
ebook on how to discover your personal style. I'm writing it in
collaboration with a
fellow image consultant. We're hoping to have it ready by the end of
May. We're both very excited about it! I'll let you know how it's going next
From the results of my
recent style survey you've made it clear to me I need to give you more
of a process approach to creating

Time to start planning for the change of
season. Whether you're going from Summer into Autumn, as we are here in
Australia, or from Winter into Spring it's a good
idea to do a half yearly clearout at this time of year.
Pack away off-season clothes to make way for
bringing clothes for the new season to the fore. Assess each item for
its condition and fit. Put aside items that need maintenance, throw out
those that are past their use by date. And make a list of items you'd
like to buy to bring your wardrobe up to date for the events and
activities over the next 6 months.
Without this half yearly review your wardrobe can quickly become a
disaster area! Suddenly you find you have nothing to wear for most

6 Steps to Style
a while now I've realized that I need to give you a roadmap for how to
makeover your style. It's one of the reasons I started my website in
the first place: to give my clients a way to identify what to
do next on their style journey.
I recommend that you
approach a style
makeover gradually, so you don't get over-whelmed and give up. It's
also good to assimilate one step before tackling the next. One of
reasons magazine and TV makeovers often don't "stick" is because there
many changes at once.
So, I've come up with the "6 steps to style"
approach. I believe becoming stylish can be categorized into 6 elements
or steps. I've now identified the steps in a panel on the right hand side of every page of my website.
If you periodically assess where you are
of the steps and make adjustments to suit your current
life needs you will be less likely to wakeup one day and find you're having a style crisis!
Assess yourself on the 6 steps bearing in mind your appearance should be...
- Authenic -- reflect who you are and how
you want to be perceived
- Enhancing -- emphasize your best features
and down play any figure flaws
- Goal achieving -- appropriate for the
place, people and your goals
I hope this helps!
