3 issues I by no means put on….


Do you may have that record in your head?

“Shirt-dresses simply aren’t my model….”

“nah, yellow shouldn’t be my color…”

“I don’t put on my hair up…”

You’re not the one one! I’ve acquired a listing of issues in my very own head that I usually keep away from, as a result of they both don’t actually work on my form, they aren’t my greatest colors, or they don’t match my model persona.

However again and again, I inform myself, and I inform my private styling shoppers…


So these three statements above are issues I’ve advised myself up to now with reference to my model…. however I do like to additionally push myself out of my model consolation zone just a little.

So listed below are three issues I by no means put on….

1. Shirt-dresses

my inner reasoning: my Fashion Character is female, edgy, elevated and I feel for the longest time, I’ve simply considered shirt-dresses as too preppy for me. Too structured maybe? But in addition buttons and busts aren’t at all times buddies….

Enter this STUNNING costume I noticed on-line from beautiful Brisbane label, RicRac Highway

However truly, it ticks ALL my Fashion Character phrases! The beautiful flowy cloth, and puff sleeve are super-feminine. The print feels edgy and daring and the model of the costume normally, significantly with the boots added, feels elevated.

It was love at first sight, despite the fact that, it’s on my record of ‘what I don’t put on”

2. Yellow – normally

For YEARS I’ve advised myself, as an individual who fits cooler tones higher, that I can’t put on yellow. However lately, two issues have occurred;

Firstly, I’ve experimented extra with color myself, understanding that really EVERY color fits EVERY individual, it’s nearly getting the tone and depth proper.

Secondly, the proper yellow for me has come again into vogue. Sure that basically helps if you’re exploring new colors to put on. For years, the yellow that was extra on-trend (and subsequently, extra accessible) was the hotter, mustard yellow.

So now that the proper (for me) yellow is right here, I can’t get sufficient….

I’m at present OBSESSED with these sunshine yellow pants from Heidi Frank (don’t fear, they’re coming again into inventory quickly!) and this wonderful Saben bag (outdated season sorry!).

Not solely are they the proper match to put on with one another, this yellow works completely with different daring colors I’m snug sporting, like this magenta pink.

3. I by no means put on my hair up.

This can be a humorous one. I lately had my hair minimize shorter than I requested for, and it actually threw me! I’ve at all times used my hair to essentially outline that female aspect of my private model, normally by sporting it out and including waves, and unexpectedly, most of it was gone!

It took a number of weeks to regulate, I felt like a lot of my femininity had been taken away, however now, I slick it again extra that I used to, however play up the female in different methods – purple lips, floral prints, and simply go about my model leaning into the shorter hair. (I’m completely rising it again although haha!)

So how do you put on belongings you’ve stated you’d by no means put on?

To begin with, you simply decide to by no means saying by no means! It’s such an enormous a part of my model mantra. I’ll by no means inform a shopper that they can’t put on one thing – in the event that they wish to put on *insert merchandise corresponding to jumpsuit right here, then we’ll merely discover them a jumpsuit that works for them!

Understanding your Fashion Foundations means you might be extra assured, and extra direct if you’re on the lookout for issues that mirror your model, but additionally means you’ve acquired some parameters round making an attempt issues that is likely to be extra exterior your consolation zone.

So, know I wish to know, what are YOU going to strive that you just’ve stated you’d “by no means” put on? Inform me within the feedback under
