Do you have a closet full of clothing, but nothing to wear?



In this video I am going to tell you how to build the perfect wardrobe of clothing that will save you time, save you money and you will love to wear.



Many women despair because they spend hours shopping, spend lots of money and still feel like they have nothing to wear.



Here are my 5 steps to creating a fabulous wardrobe:



Step 1: Define your style. If you are not sure what your personal style is, take a look at the items in your wardrobe that you love to wear or wear the most. If these don’t reflect what you really love, make use of magazine or pinterest. What style and colours are you drawn to? How would you describe them, are the sleek and chic, soft and feminine or sporty? What do you want your look to say about you?



Step 2: Learn what works for your body shape. This is the key to looking fabulous no matter what you wear. If you really aren’t sure, then it’s worth asking a trusted friend or using the services of professionals. Really knowing what works for your shape will save you a fortune as it keeps you from buying expensive clothing that don’t work for you.



Step 3: Evaluate your lifestyle. What do you spend most of your time doing? Do you work from home and have young children or do you work in a formal corporate environment and travel often for work? These are things you need to consider when you plan your wardrobe. Your wardrobe should support you in your roles, not you trying to fit your life into your wardrobe.



Step 4: Shop your own wardrobe. Once you are clear on the look you want to create, you know what works for your shape and your lifestyle, take a look at your existing wardrobe. Which pieces work with the look you want to create?



Step 5: Make a list of the items you need to create the look you desire. Consider your budget and prioritise the pieces that will give you the most wear. You may not find them all at once, but don’t settle. Rather buy quality over quantity.

Do you find it difficult to get dressed in the morning? Have you bought an item only to find that have one just like in your closet already?



In this video, I am going to show you how to organise your closet and keep it that way.



Having an organised closet makes it so much easier to get dressed, shop for things you need and plan a wardrobe you actually wear.



Here are my 3 steps to an organised closet:



Step 1: Separate your clothing by the season. Pack away and store clothing and shoes that you are not wearing for the current season. This makes it easier to arrange your clothing and see everything you have.



Step 2: Find a way of arranging your clothing that works for you. There are no absolute rules when it comes to this, but having some form of a system is important. Make sure you can see your clothing and shoes. What you don’t see, you won’t wear.



Here are my 3 suggested ways of arranging your closet.



1.If you decide what you are going to wear according to colour, then hang and fold your clothing according to colour.



2.If you decide what you are going to wear according to style, then hang and fold your clothing according to style, placing your skirts, pants, blouses etc together. You can then arrange these pieces according to colour for further organization.



3.If you really don’t like to have to think about what you are going to wear in the morning, plan a little beforehand and hang outfits together.



Step 3: Organise your shoes. I like to make use of clear, stackable boxes. This way I can see my shoes and they don’t get damaged because they are all jumbled up. You can also make use of your boots boxes to store your boots when it’s summer and in winter, these boxes will fit several pairs of summer shoes at one time. It’s a great space saver.

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.

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.
