Smart Sales Shopping!

Who can resist the lure of the sales? Well, me normally, I hate the crush!  


But even for me, seeing everything I never needed at eye-wateringly low prices, it can be difficult not to splurge on unnecessary items. Come on hands up – how many of you have got items in your wardrobe with the ‘sale’ tag still on?

(Me, 1 dress from 2 years ago that I bought in Galeries Lafayette but I now keep it as a dire reminder for my Style consultations so perhaps it is being ‘used’ ?!)

What’s new for you this Spring?

I spent last week in London, in part to spend time with other Colour Me Beautiful ladies to learn lots, particularly what’s new and exciting for Spring 2017.

Some trends have already invaded the shops and some will arrive with the warmer weather but here are a couple of ideas on what you might wear if you want to be up to date this Spring 2017.

Lets start with the annoying trend – YELLOW

It’s still here. Everywhere. Mustard is stocked from M&S to Chloé. I must admit I love it but heck, it doesn’t love me, but happily my living room walls are, at least, ‘fashionable’!

New Year, same wardrobe, new broom!

Wardrobe revamp from who what wear

We are two weeks into 2017 and along with the influx of ‘SALE’ and ‘MONEY OFF’ emails, we’re also seeing lots of ‘NOTHING NEW’ messages.

Some people are shying away from the shops and instead vowing to buy no new clothes, some for up to a year (have you read the blog from The Women’s Room on this)?

How many times have I said that statistically most of us wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time?

How to wear the Perfect Little Black Dress this Christmas

Whilst I love, adore and wear colour at every possible opportunity I also recognise that sometimes we all just want to keep things classic and simple.  This is when a little black dress (LBD) comes in.

Black may not be in everyone’s dominant colour palette but I believe that it’s not the colour you wear but how you wear it that makes it a success.

You need to consider the fabric your LBD is made from, how much flesh is on show and what accessories and make-up you are going to use in order to make it work for you.

All Shades of Black

The appearance of black will soften when you use a textured fabric and ‘lighten’ when you opt for a sheer fabric.

This Claude Pierrot  dress is a great option for those with a Soft or Light colouring as the texture of the sheer lace top softens the appearance of black next to the face.
