Dressing for the New Fashion Season
Do you welcome a new season for the chance
to wear the new season's
not necessarily talking about going out and buying a whole lot of new
items, but the chance to pull out those off-season items that
haven't been wearing for the last 6 months or so.
do you hate the change in season because it seems to highlight that you
don't have anything to wear? I do confess, this used to be me, before I
image consultant. It was the change of season, when I was looking for
warmer or cooler clothes to wear, that always seemed to emphasise the
fact I often had nothing appropriate or appealing to wear!
that's you too, isn't it time you did something about it? It's really
good removing the stress of dressing and being able to feel good about
The way to solve your wardrobe woes is to
- what clothes suit you (body shape,
colouring and personality)
- what clothes are appropriate for your
- what clothing styles are contemporary (check out my trend watch articles)
- where to buy the clothes that suit you
- how to style your clothes
all the above items checked, plan your wardrobe for the next 3 to 6
months, think now about any special occasions you know are coming up,
and what you need on a day-to-day basis.
You'll find a lot of articles and resources on my
website to help with the above. However, if you'd like more

Oh No, I Need an LBD!
I recently joined a choir, Shower Idols, and
we're performing this
Saturday night at the Avalon RSL in an event called HuggFest. At choir
practice this week I discovered our choir's dress code for
The dress code is pretty flexible. Our
lovely, creative, choir masters, Min and Mitch,
want us to express our personality while still looking like a cohesive
choir. The code is a dress, or separates
with a bit of an evening theme, slightly vamped up as a performer
should be. So far, so good.
However, the colour scheme is one or more
black, light grey, royal blue and silver. Aaagghhh! As someone who
loves her Warm Autumn (warm and muted) colours I have absolutely
nothing in any of those colours!
what to do? In work through my best options I've ruled out royal blue,
light grey and silver, since I hate most blues (teals and medium dark
turquoises are great, but nowhere near royal blue) and I don't like
light colours near my face -- they make me look washed out, and
So, I figure my best option is going to be
an LBD in
a matt material, that exposes some skin near my face, without being too
low cut ie neckline not too high and ideally medium straps or
sleeveless. Black separates would work too.
I'm finding out
later today if a girlfriend's black dress will fit me. She's also
bringing some shoe and silver jewellery/scarf options for me to try
(because all of my accessories are designed for my warm colours, of
course!). Last resort will be buying an LBD.
(To offset the heavy, somberness of black
I'll be wearing red undies to give me energy ;D !)
I'll post a photo on my Facebook page to show you what I end up with and how it looks!
