Don’t Give Your Booties the Boot… 5 Tips on How to Wear Booties.

You’ve seen them in store windows and on women of all ages: booties or shoe boots as I call them.
They look cute on others but you aren’t sure if you can wear them.
You have doubts. I bet I can guess what you’re thinking. Am I too old to wear booties?
How do people wear booties with socks?
Should I get a slouchy one or a slim one?
What kind of pants do you wear booties?
Will they go out of style?

Lots of questions but lucky for you, I have lots of answers. Booties offer style solutions and they are not going out of style anytime soon!

  1. If you choose booties in a colour such as burgundy, teal or red, then connect the colour to your outfit in another piece of clothing or an accessory.
  2. Booties in light colours, such as sand or taupe can be worn with winter white or similar taupe colours.
  3. They also look great with darker denims or pants as a contrasting colour, especially if you are tall and can spare the height.
  4. Choose a bootie that relates to your hair colour, so it brings the eye of the observer up to your face and hair. This will tie almost any outfit together.
  5. Booties in metallic shades can add glitz or glamour or dressiness to any outfit.
  6. Ankle booties that are low cut in the vamp are great for slim over-the-knee pencil skirts. This bootie style elongates the leg.

Have some fun trying on various styles and wear an outfit you think you would like to pair them with.
Or… call me ! I am happy to go Bootie shopping with you!

How to Express Your Passions Through Fashion This 2017!

At the beginning of each New Year we focus on our goals for business, health, home and spiritual.

Sometimes we lose sight of ourselves in all the great plans.

In Fashion Feng Shui, we set an intention that we would like to bring out in our appearance. Fashion is an easy way to do that.

There is a plethora of styles and prints to choose from. So, let’s get personal with some prints that match your hobbies, interests or passions. Wear images that inspire you!

Love to write? Read?

You may carry a journal with you. Or, you have downloaded books that you can’t wait to get into this winter.

Wear clothing that bear messages. Appreciate your favourite font in a unique piece of clothing.

World Cultures & Travel?

You aren’t satisfied on a seven block radius in your neighborhood. Your goals include figuring out how to make a living writing a travel blog. Bring out your travel enthusiasm by wearing African prints, Asian inspired kimonos and dresses influenced by the rich colours of India.

Pictures of flower gardens dance in your head?

Your library is filled with botanical picture books. You have visited Monet’s gardens and you are pouring over seed catalogues for the spring.

Choose to wear florals in small or large bloom scale. Cardigans, dresses and tops can show off your passion for all things floral.

Love animals?

Your goal includes a trip to Africa next year. Or maybe you are headed to the rain forest? Stay inspired by wearing leggings in a zebra print. Or try an animal print scarf with your coat. There is an abundance of prints out there to wear during the day or silky pyjamas by night.

Spring Fashion – Are You a Colour Clash or a Colour Compliment?

what's wrong with this look?

What’s wrong with this look? Give me your feedback!

Spring is here and most of us are excited to be wearing lighter and brighter clothes.  Seeing the beautiful spring colours in the store windows brings a smile to my face. However, the colours featured in the spring fashion palette do not make my smile look bright, white and dazzling, because they are warm colours of peach, yellow, lime green and lilac. Since I have a “cool” skin undertone, I look sallow when I wear warm colours. Are You a Colour Clash or a Colour Compliment?

Wearing unflattering colours can make you look tired, older than your age and can actually deplete your energy.

When you wear clothing in colours that are too strong for your complexion, hair and eyes, they are the attention getters, not you. Bright or neon colors can seem to enter a room before you do. All anyone can see is the colour and you go missing.
