Does your closet look something like this? In this video I am going to tell you how to de-clutter and downsize your closet so that it only contain clothing you really love and wear.



If you have a cluttered closet, it can cost you money, time and make it hard to get dressed in the morning.



Here is my easy 5-step method to clearing your clutter and keeping it that way.



Step 1: Clearing out your closet can be an emotional experience. Often our closets are filled with clothes we used to wear, sizes we used to fit into or clothes that suit the lifestyle we used to have or wish we have. To make this process easier, your first step is to make it fun. Give yourself time. Get a baby sitter if you have to, put on your favourite music and pour a class of wine.



Step 2: Start by taking out the items you really love to wear. These will be the pieces that fit you well and make you feel fabulous when you wear them. Let these pieces set the precedent for future decisions.



Step 3: Create 3 different piles; one for items you may want to keep, one for items that no longer fit your body, personal style or lifestyle, and one for items that are damaged. Take out each item from your closet and put it in one of these three piles. Remember, if you haven’t worn it in the last year, you probably won’t wear in the future. Be honest with yourself.



Step 4: Critically go through each item you have in the keep pile. Try each one on and make sure it fits you well and represents your personal style. Compare these items with the pieces you set aside that you love. If they don’t match up, they must go to the ‘no longer work pile’.



Step 5: Give away or sell all the items that no longer work for you. Many people find it hard to give away items they have bought, but never wear. Just remember, that you need to get rid of what don’t work for you, so that you can make space for what does. The only items that make it back in your closet should be things you love and actually wear.

You need updated professional profile photographs, you’ve booked the shoot with the photographer, but now what are you going to wear?



In this video I am going to help you to make clothing choices that accurately reflects the image you wish to portray.



Whether you are an entrepreneur or work in the formal sector, profile photographs on online platforms work to build your professional image and personal brand. Your profile pic is often your first interaction with a potential customer, clients or employer.



So before you just grab the first thing in your wardrobe to wear to your shoot, take a look at these 3 tips to accurately projecting your professional image.



1. Determine the look you want to portray. What do you want your look to say about you? Depending on what your answer is, will determine your best clothing choices. It’s a good idea to write down a few words that describe the look you are after.

2. Choose your clothing accordingly. What do you have that best represents the look you wish to portray? Which colours, styles and fabrics will work best? Try on a few different outfits and then select a 2 or 3 of the best ones to take with you to the shoot.

3. Make sure you can replicate the look. It’s very important that when people meet you in person that you look like your photograph. So make sure that your look is easy for you to style yourself. For example for ladies, if you usually wear your hair curly because it’s easy, don’t go for a super straight slick look if you can’t keep it up. For guys, if you have facial hair, don’t suddenly go clean-shaven for your picture and go back to facial hair every day. Also ensure that your work wardrobe represents the look you are portraying in the photograph. If you look completely different in your photograph as you do in real life, you may come across as inauthentic and untrustworthy.

Putting together a good work wardrobe doesn’t have to break the bank.



In this video I am going to tell you how to create a good professional image on a budget.



Creating a professional look that makes you look good and feel confident can be done on a budget. You just have to know how.



1. Decide on the look you want to portray. This is a very important step because it narrows your focus and keeps you clear on what you are looking for when going shopping and getting dressed. Eg. If you want to create a sleek, chic look, you will look out for pieces with clean, simple lines and stay away from flouncy skirts in floral print.

2. Shop your own wardrobe. Many women don’t even know what is in their wardrobes. Once you know what look you are after, take a look at your existing wardrobe to see what will work with that look.

3. Make a shopping list. Making a list makes it much easier to shop. Once again, it narrows your focus and makes shopping less overwhelming. Don’t settle. If it’s not exactly what you are looking for, don’t waste your money.

4. Create a mix and match wardrobe. You don’t need a lot of clothes. You only need a few items that mix and match well.

Work dress codes have relaxed a lot in the last few years, which is great right? But it has also created some confusion about what is and is not suitable to wear to work.



In this video, I’m going to give you a few guidelines to what to and what not wear to work.



Giving professional image guidelines can be a little tricky, as they can dramatically vary from industry to industry and company to company. Baring that in mind, here are some basic guidelines that will relate to most working environments.



1. Dress for your body shape. What is appropriate for you to wear will depend on your body shape. Dressing for your shape doesn’t mean you have to wear super tight clothing or big baggy clothing to cover up. It’s about knowing what looks good on you and wearing it with confidence.

2. Avoid showing too much skin. If you are busty, check that your neckline doesn’t flash cleavage; make sure your skirts don’t show too much leg. This doesn’t mean you have to cover everything up, just use some discretion with what is and is not appropriate for work.

3. Avoid wearing clothing that is overly casual, even on casual day. For example, strappy tops that reveal bra straps, sloppy jeans, or wearing leggings as trousers.

Do you know that creating a professional image is important, but you are just not sure of how to go about it?



In this video, I am going to give you tips to creating a professional image that will make you look and feel confident.



There are very few hard and fast rules these days when it comes to professional image these days, but here are my top 4 guidelines.

1. What is your company’s dress code or dress policy? This will vary from industry to industry and company to company. If this is unclear, then look at the various levels in your company and observe what they wear. Each company tends to have a culture of their own.

2. What is your position in the company? If you are in a leadership position, you need to dress as a person with authority. This doesn’t necessarily need to be a stark black suit, but you do need to come across as a capable leader. That being said, dress for the position you want, not just the one you have.

3. Who are your clients? Even if you are not client facing, your colleagues are your clients. Give some thought to who they are and how you want them to perceive you, then dress accordingly.

4. What do you want your professional image to say about you?

We can’t control everything that people think of us, but giving some thought to the image you want to portray can give your greater control over how you are perceived. Make sure your professional image speaks of your professional abilities and confidence in your work.
