I thank you for following my Blog over the last few years. Today I want to let you know that from now on I will follow you – How? By answering your questions! I have worked with many women over the years, helping them with their wardrobe and finding their image.
Fashion Magazines and sites on the internet inundated us with fashion advice, but they are all addressed to a wide audience and not to YOU personally. They don’t know YOU. But I would like to change this. If you have a question about the following please write in the comment box, and you can even attach a photo :
What suits you best
What to wear when
How to find your look
How to make a clothing budget
How to clean out your wardrobe
How to save money

A softer version of black is Navy Blue. For those women who find black a little harsh, navy blue can be the answer. It is as respectable, and as business like as black but gentler to your complexion. During the 1940’s navy blue was worn more often than black – if you go to any vintage store and look at the dresses, and even pocket books, from that period, you will see that they are often navy blue.
No, it is not harder to coordinate, like black it can be worn with anything – it will go with any colour, except its cousin black. Most women have never considered navy blue, but since this spring it is one of the fashion colours, it is maybe time to try it.
It is easy, it takes very little thought and one is never wrong wearing black with black, which is the reason why so many women are always are in black. But with spring coming it is time to add a touch of colour, and this year the fashion trends help – one of the major looks is black and white.
You can follow that trend with adding a white blouse or top, adding a white scarf, and even white handbags can make the difference – of course other colors can also brighten up a black outfit – don’t look like a widow this spring – join the fun of wearing bright, happy colours – you might even try something in orange?
If you are on a budget, like most of us, your clothes have to last several seasons. The best investment, therefore, are conservative styles, simple styles. They will not look oudated next year or even the year after.
Simple, conservative styles are more versatile. You can change them into a different look with accessories. You will not get tired of a plain dress as quickly as you will of get tired of the print on this dress.
It is a beautiful dress, but you can only afford if your budget is unlimited.
If you want to follow the new fashion trends, do it with accessories – a belt, a hat, shoes, or jewelry in the latest style.
Yesterday we spoke about looking at your wardrobe, ‘cheking up, tidying up’ and while you are at it I suggest you find out what you need to buy and write it down – e.g. a white sweater, a nice scarf, a new black skirt and so on. No, I don’t think you can’t remember, but with everything else that occupies our mind, and maybe not having the time to go shopping soon, it can slip your mind. And please put that list in your handbag so that the next time you are in a store you can look at it and you won’t be tempted by a dress, instead of getting that sweater you really need to go with your suit.
