Note to self – Book 1st April off work!!

Shades of Grey

Grey can look very professional for work. You need to pick the right grey for you. A very dark grey could be perfect or it could overpower you. A pale grey could work wonders or could wash you out. As with all colours you need to see them against your skin tone and preferably in a natural light.
A friend with an honest opinion helps and you can compare different grey’s against your skin tone.

A sales assistant who tells you the truth is worth her weight in gold – ask her opinion, get her suggestions and show your appreciation. All sales assistants should be honest (but this isn’t always the case), if you get home and you hate it then you’ll just take it back, a waste of everyone’s time.

Add colour to a grey dress

Adding colourful accessories could work just as easily with a grey trouser suit.
The colour you wear has an instant impact in a first impression, a meeting and a presentation.
It doesn’t need to be a full coloured outfit – accessories work just as well. Choose one colour, for instance, purple.

You can add purple in a variety of areas of your outfit:

nail varnish, purse, handbag, cardigan, shoes, scarf, belt or jewellery!

October is Pink – Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness

In support of breast cancer awareness, Kerry O’Brine Womens Wear is going to be attending a fundraising evening this Thursday 31st October in Essex!

We will have our collections to try on and browse, a prize in the draw and a gift in the goody bags. We will be donating £2 for every lavender cushion sold to breast cancer awareness (cushions presented in lovely pink gift bags).

Stay tuned for pictures of the evening!

October is Pink
Using a green base
This shows two sides of using green as a base colour for an outfit. Depending on the green that works with your skin tone and hair colour you can go warmer or colder, lighter or darker, brighter or muted with the coloured accessories!

September – A time to re-evaluate and re-start!

It’s nearing the end of August and I find myself thinking about September looming over me. Wow this year has passed so quickly and so much left to do!

September always feels like a new start to me. It’s almost like I have been left with the start of the school year permanently ingrained in my mind. As a working woman with my own business I still think about buying a new pencil case, some stationary and maybe a couple of new outfits in September, to see me through the start of the new Autumn season!!

Am I the only one? Perhaps.

The fashion merry-go-round (fashion fabric shows and fashion weeks) starts up again in September and most shops will have a full stock of Autumn Winter pieces in.

September feels like a start whether you took holiday in August or not. If you’re getting your kids new outfits for a fresh start in September perhaps September is a time for you to re-evaluate your own wardrobe.

Who says we have to only evaluate ourselves, our goals and our resolutions in January?

Why not take the time for yourself to start in September with a great new feeling about the way you look. I have had a think about some simple changes and things you could do to start off your new season. Here are some suggestions:

  • Go for a bra fitting (your body size fluctuates through out the year)
  • Go for a hair consultation (a new hair style, cut or colour can lift your mood in an instant)
  • Go through your wardrobe and get rid of those things that lurk around but you never wear (if you need a hand – meet an Image consultant to discuss your needs)
  • Wear a new colour: Do you always go for the same colours in your professional wardrobe – a new one that looks fab on you, can give confidence
  • Get a new lipstick or eyeshadow colour – they can make an instant impactBrown eyeshadows
  • Get some new accessories – you can jazz up an old suit with the addition of a new season belt or bag
  • Book yourself in for a manicure – nothing says professional like a well looked after pair of handsNails
  • Flush out those tights in your drawers that need to be binned. Get some great advice from a hosiery expert and fill your drawer with some great new tights for Autumn!Legs blog
  • Get your Autumn Winter shoes ready to go! A re-heel and polish will make them feel shiny and stylish again!

Consultations For London Based Readers:

If you are based in London for work or home then you may be interested in the event I have organised on 12th September. I decided that the start of September was the perfect time to hold our Colour themed networking and consultation evening.

The goal is to give professional women the chance to have a chat with consultants in a variety of colour focused areas in a relaxed and friendly environment. This advice should start you off for Autumn Winter.

We will be covering colour in the following areas: hair, makeup, image, clothing and tights.behind-the-scenes-4video
