“Janette’s ability to really understand what I like was quiet extraordinary…I have worked with stylist before and I have to say this was the most fun, most educational and most productive session. Janette is indeed my best shopping find ever”
Justine – Senior Executive
“This has not just been a makeover, as “makeover” in my mind lasts a night or so, but a transition in physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. I have NEVER received so many genuine compliments ever before.” Victoria
“Janette, you came into my life when I desperately needed a change. The style and colour consultations we had were invaluable. Thank you for curing my colour blindness as I no longer see only in black, brown and gray.” Susanna
“You showed me things that I would have never looked at in the shop. And the silk blouse from jigsaw with the paisley pattern is my favourite — I would have never bought it! ” Anjta
“I wanted to say a big thank you to you for being such a great shopper and for making the whole task of buying clothes much more fun. I always learn more about what works, what doesn’t and why!” Georgia
You’ve seen them in the stores, you’ve seen them in the magazines, you’ve seen them on celebrities, but somehow you just can’t see brogues on your own feet… sound familiar?
Welcome to this season's power couple: BLAZERS & BROGUES.
The classic brogue deserves a place in every busy woman’s shoe wardrobe because they’re a more polished alternative to a ballet flat - without the threat of toe cleavage.
If you are new to brogues then you are going to love how stylish and versatile they are. Let's explore ways you can wear this season's power couple.
1. With Jeans
Skinny, boyfriend or distressed jeans look great with Brogues. Throw on your power blazer and scarf and you are set for a stylish and warm winter outing. Depending on your dress guidelines this would make a great "Casual Friday" outfit. Roll up the skinny jeans for a chic preppy look.
2. Dresses and Skirts
Unlike many people believe, brogues are not just reserved for guy inspired style, they also look amazing with feminine outfits – a great way to balance your yin / yang by adding a structured blazer to a feminine dress or skirt. Brogues are also versatile because you can wear them with socks in summer and opaque tights in winter.
3. Tailored Pants
This is a great look to take you from the office to lunch to drinks. Elegant, yet easy to wear and never overdressed, the brogues, blazer and pants combo is a must! Get you ankles out for an on trend feel if your game!
Here are some brands that sell stores great brogues!
Invest in the best brogues you can afford, because they’ll remain a wardrobe staple for years to come
Styling Your Success
If you think about it, your wardrobe is a place you visit every single day. Every morning when you open up the doors to your wardrobe it instantly speaks to you. As you look at that pair of jeans you haven't worn in a few years, you're subconsciously reminded of the extra kilo's you've put on. Then you glance up and see a top that still has a guilt tag attached to it and you are reminded of how you've wasted your hard earned money yet again. What does this do your self-esteem and confidence?As a professional woman what you pull out of this space is affecting you more than you realise. It’s affecting how you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror, it’s affecting how you perform in a meeting, it's affecting the way you walk and talk and your body language.
Your wardrobe holds emotions and feelings, some good and some bad. Every piece of clothing tells a story. They are a reflection of where you've come from and where you are headed.Many of my clients before seeing me settle for the "it will do" outfit every single day. Is that how you want the world to see you?
2. Get Rid Of The Negative EmotionsMany of my clients have multiple sizes of clothing staggered throughout their wardrobe.
When Fran came to see me 18 months ago for a personal colour session I could tell she was feeling exhausted.
She had been working long hours as a consultant in the Not-For-Profit space. During our initial conversation, I could see from looking at her that she was a "Spring". So I asked Fran, "Are you creative"? She looked me and said, "Yes, why do you ask"?
You see Fran was so tired from her consulting work that she no longer had time to enjoy her hobby of painting.
Some of you may know that there is a strong connection between "seasons" and "personality traits". Springs - are very creative individuals, some are born to be on a stage. People in the public eye who are "springs" include Kylie Minogue, Scarlett Johannson, Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, and Blake Lively.
When I saw Fran's colouring and knew that she didn't have a creative outlet, it explained why she was feeling so tired.
When I shared this with Fran, I could see the "switch go on" and it was a real A-HA moment for her.
More recently I helped Fran choose multiple outfits that would support her in attending conference events and giving a podium presentation. As we reviewed her pieces I could see that she ABSOLUTELY nailed her colours, prints, weaves, and texture. We were able to put together outfits that supported her brand message, that would give her visual strength and support her creative personality.
Here's what Fran had to say about her experience.
1. How did the knowledge from your personal colour session impact your business direction and decisions?
This goes way beyond fashion. My personal colour session 18 months ago was a catalyst for me. I discovered that the colours I wore directly influenced my energy levels, creativity, and self-confidence. It also helped me understand why some of the work I was doing was so draining for my personality type. I have now restructured my business to do more of what I love: helping non-profits build their brands and find new income. So I spend my time facilitating strategy workshops, presenting, writing and working for causes I care about. (I’ve even written a book!)
2. How did the wardrobe workout prepare you for your podium presentation at your recent industry conference?
I felt amazing! I hadn’t looked that good or felt that self-confident in years!
3. If someone was thinking about consulting an Image Consultant / Stylist, what would you say to them?
Do it now. You owe it to yourself - and the people you love - to become the best YOU you can be.
It's moments like this with clients that I know that I am living my truth. Giving women confidence is my path, this is what I was put on earth to do. Every day I feel so thankful that I was able to discover this gift and to be able to pass it to all the remarkable women I've worked with over the years.
P.S In case you're wondering, Fran can't stop painting now. Her artwork is amazing and it was wonderful to see it spread out all around her home.
