Today’s fun Style Passport session took us around town, from coffee and a chat, to browsing and buying, to trying on shoes.
My lovely client has a ‘boring’ wardrobe – her words, not mine , that she needs to edit and rework.
Time for some styling fun.
Today we established her style essentials, including this amazing palette for her – soft autumn.
Colour analysis is only one of the essentials. In my first sessions I build in a Style Essentials tour, so you can see how your Style Essentials, including your colour analysis, work together to create your best looks.
When we start honing right in on the things she loves, I’m happy.
I want all my clients to enjoy their style – that’s why I do what I do.
My hope is that you’ll find styling such a powerful experience that you will feel a complete night and day difference. And actually, that’s the kind of transformation that is normal at Style Gorgeous I am thrilled to say.
So what else could be left to offer? Well lately I’ve been thinking about those gritty moments when you want to buy something new, but you aren’t sure where to find it or what to buy. Or you’ve got a great outfit, but you don’t know how to accessorise it. Or summer is coming up and you don’t feel ready – we did your styling session in winter, now there’s a whole lot more choices.
So lately I’ve been exploring ways to help you solve these little gritty moments. With the Style Traveller package, several of my clients have already enjoyed a ‘bank’ of styling hours that they can draw on at any time.
Style Travellers have the luxury of having a stylist on hand – literally just at the end of a text, all year round. They get regular fashion tips and updates. And possibly the best of all – Insider Style Hunting. With Insider Style Hunting I set aside some time to hunt for pieces you will love. I send you pictures of the pieces I have found for you.
Clients have told me they love the Style Traveller because it shows them options they would never have thought of. And they know they have their style sorted for the next year.
The Style Traveller package comes in Coach Class and Business Class.
I love to keep in touch with my clients – and my Style Travellers are people I regularly share tips and ideas with.
One of my Style Travellers is a lady who knew her colours well before we met. In that area she was completely confident. In fact she even knew that people often made the mistake of assuming she is a Summer, when actually she is one of the Spring seasons.
I knew that she had taken a lot from our styling session. But she told me recently something that I really enjoyed.
The style personalities we explored together are “The gift that keeps on giving”.
Imagine waking up in the morning and knowing that the options you have to choose from are all authentically you. Your pieces don’t only look great on the hanger, they feel good to wear. All day long you feel like “Dang, I look good”.
For my client, knowing her style personalities has given her confidence to dress authentically. What could they do for you?
Is now the time to buy yourself a Christmas present and invest a little in you?
The lovely Josie Maggie has a beautiful blog called Lost in Silver Fern about moving to New Zealand and so much more.
She was one of our guests at a Style Explorer workshop: “Working with Nina is all about making sure your individual style is flattering and the best it can be while at the same time not putting a blanket rule over everyone. Thanks for your amazing workshop Nina!”
When you work with me you’ll hear a few themes. I view fashion as a beautiful, creative tool for life – for enjoyment, for success and for fun. I am all about having fun with fashion and for me that means creating possibilities and freedom.
My view on the fashion industry is firstly that I’m grateful it provides us with options.
However I do think that sometimes the industry creates standards that are ludicrous and limiting. For example, the idea that white should only be worn in summer, or you ‘have to have’ this particular colour to be stylish this season. (Maybe it doesn’t flatter you.)
There is usually far more freedom in fashion than most people realise, which just adds to the fun. I am here to show you how enjoyable styling can be – it could surprise you.
Once you’ve solved your style challenges with me you will have more space in your mind and heart for the rest of life’s challenges and adventures. Ready, set, go!
Does that mean that it’s not good to spend time thinking of fashion? Not at all. Heck, I dream of fashion designs!
I love the art of fashion and love playing with it. I simply wish that more of us would be able to view fashion so that it serves us (who’s the boss?) rather than being caught up in the unnecessary drama that can often be part of the fashion scene.
Thank you Vera and Maribel at Creativa Design Studio for the opportunity to be a panellist and to share with women in business my views on looking good in the world of business. Your fabulous (and first!) Women in Business event was so much fun! I look forward to the next one.
