Style that loves you back

I’m a believer in buying what I absolutely love and loves me back. Why would you buy something because it’s on sale or just looks ok on you? Why waste your well-earned dollars? I only want to buy and wear something that is absolutely divine and makes my heart sing.

Sales Tactics

So don’t be fooled by retailers with their buy two, get one free or 20% off everything. With Black Friday, Super Saturday and Cyber Monday, there is always a good reason for a sale so think twice before you buy.

So what is hot right now and will always look good, this year or next.

Take a Bow

Make a statement with a bow this summer, it’s simple, stunning and extravagant. Go as big as you dare to add an air of femininity to your outfit. Whether it’s a one-shoulder dress, a simple tee, or on your sleeve it can elevate an outfit to another level.  (Image from Country Road – Leaf Lace Midi Dress)

MY TIP It all depends on the placement of the bow and the proportion to look balanced.

Hit the Spot

This summer polka dots are back in a big way. Spots are a sure way to look feminine, fun and flirty. Monochrome, pastels, metallic or brights you are sure to make your mark. Wear them fringed, frilled, layered or in varying sizes to make an impact.

MY TIP   To look slimmer wear a smaller spot. Generally the larger the spot, the more casual the look.

A Fine Line

Striped dress

Stripes have an enduring appeal and a perennial favourite of fashion designers and screen icons. This season earn your stripes in soft feminine styles in pale blue, navy or black and white.


To look slimmer wear vertical stripes and the finer the better.
