Been a crazy-busy couple of weeks so making our wardrobe “work” for us, not against us has been essential. This blog you will see us both being creative with our existing pieces sprinkled with some new items and accessories.
Hope we inspire you to “play” in your closet too! S&J x
Dressy Casual (left) : Love to dress up but still want to be casual? “Dress down” your statement pieces with casual bottoms like; shorts, distressed denim, 3/4 pants and white but, don’t forget your accessories to finish off your look. Remember as Sam always says – “You can never be over dressed, only inappropriately dressed!”
Mixes Of Blues (Middle) : An early start today doing a Deluxe Body Analysis in the VC Style Studio before we open. A close up of my incredible Taratata (Parisian) jewellery. ♡ Wrap top from Review.
High & Low End Fashion (Left) : I have said it before and I will say it again : mix your high and low end fashion!! A pair of Target jeans with a CUE top; perfect combination for a day in the VC Style Studio.
Shopping Style (Left) : Taking 6 Central Coast women to Macquarie Shopping Centre to shop for their Summer wardrobes today. Bring on the giggles & shopping bags! Wearing my Zara pants and Jordi’s Witchery lace top. We can’t share many pieces because we are different colour palettes but every now and then we can and it is a fabulous way to experiment with different items you wouldn’t normally buy!
One Shoulder Style (Middle) : Today’s style for an In Home Style Session. Wearing High & Low Fashion: Kmart culottes & top (all for $27) with our cane “it” bag $69.95, Italian earrings & Betts leather mules.
Saturday’s Style (Right) :
Work: Shopping trip with a client at Erina Fair (found so many bargains) then styling 2 client’s outfits in our Studio. Gold tote just new in $49.95 and can double as a beach bag!
Play : Family dinner to celebrate our girl’s Birthday at a fav local restaurant! Such a hectic time of year but amazing how when your wardrobe “works” you will always have something fabulous to wear. Suzanne Grae this season jersey pants, Betts leather mules and my gorgeous lace jacket Jordi brought me back from Spain this year. <3
Copy Cat Fashion (Left & Middle) : Does anyone ever watch a t.v series and fall in love with one of the characters or even their look? I have fallen in love with the fashion that Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) wears on the newly re-done Dynasty. Yesterday’s outfit was semi inspired by Fallon’s Gucci “pyjama” look. #pyjamastyling
Colour Crush (Right) : I am IN LOVE with the Red & Pink trend at the moment. This is a very quirky colour combination and not often a favorite for Winter palettes as it can be low contrast. As a Winter palette, I have “amped” up my Witchery red dress with a hot pink lippy, our new Red & Pink crystal earrings ($44.95) and our glitter pink clutch ($39.95) ❤💄💕
Cancer Council Media Launch :
Sam (Left) – Stepped out in heels tonight for the first time in months for the media launch of the Cancer Council NSW annual Stars Of The Central Coast fundraiser. Proud to be invited to judge again this year & also have VibrantConcepts sponsor the VIP room. Wearing this season Forever New soft metallic top with our clutch, earrings and Betts rose gold heels.
PS. Winged eyeliner compliments of Jordi’s skills!
Jordi (Right) – I loved Jordi’s look tonight she really nailed 5pm Summer Cocktail attire for the media launch. Dress by Kira Pizzingrilli – Sx
Wild Weather (Left) : With this unexpected coastal weather there is always linen! Day off style for errands & me time. Wearing: new season Glassons jkt, faithful Sussan pant, our “it” cane basket $69.95, wrist wrap $34.95 & Zatini wooden earrings $12 + “VC 5 Minute Makeover”!
Style Tip (Right) : Just because an outfit is old does not mean it isn’t fashionable. This dress is over 4 years old…it comes out every season and every season I tell myself “I need to replace this”. Truth is, I DON’T, there is nothing wrong with this dress, it suits my colour palette, it is a great shape and it still fits. I DO however, need to update it each season!
This season I have added a pair of oversized Silver Taratata earrings (available in Studio $54.95) and our new across the body bag (also available in Navy $39.95). Don’t get rid of something because it is “old” – just update it with some new season accessories.
Concert Style :
Sam (Left) – Rock concert style for 50+! Seeing Midnight Oil tonight again after possibly 30 years with our oldest friends, their kids & ours.
Jordi (Right) – Midnight Oil Concert Style ✌ Layering lingerie and a glitter tee I picked up in Italy back with my faithful Lee jeans and Dr. Martens!
Recovery Saturday Style (Left) : Home at 2am yesterday morning after the Midnight Oil concert meant “energy colours” for me when I did a Style Session then back to the studio with a client who came all the way from Sydney! Bright colours may lift some people but for my low contrast, warm palette; neutral & dusty pink are my Spring “go to” combo when super busy.
Styling Idea (Right) : Have you tried the cullotte trend yet? I am an addict, they are so comfy and so many style options. Best thing they look like a skirt but aren’t so restricting! Off to do an “In Home” Style Session today then working on something very exciting…all revealed shortly. Glassons culottes with our cane “it” bag $69.95 and resin earrings.
Low Contrast Styling (Left) : Brand Image Coaching session for a corporate client at the VC Style Studio this morning then off to a client’s home to sort her Summer wardrobe & pack for her holiday! Wearing: Big W pleat skirt (last season), Diana Ferrari top, Betts Shoes & our necklace $34.95 & earrings $12!
Think Outside The Box (Middle) when getting dressed and use denim as an accessory not as a basic (e.g jeans)! If you love denim but feel it is too casual to wear bring it in in your accessories. This gorgeouss denim bag is now available at the VC Style Studio and only $59.95, Skirt from ASOS and shirt from Cotton On.
Another Concert Tonight = Another Outfit 🤘 (Right)
You don’t need to buy a new outfit every time you go out! Have wardrobe pieces you love and finish off your look with statement accessories.《 My statement is a pair of VC Style Studio oversized gypsy earrings 》
Be True To YOU (Left) : This outfit is not everyone’s style – I can understand that, but I encourage you to wear what IS YOUR STYLE. Wear what you love and be confident in it! So many clients feel that living on the coast we need to dress down… No Way…dress in what you feel comfortable and expresses your personality. ✌ I would wear this if I was at home or in Spain – do not let your destination dictate your outfit. Lace skirt from Witchery.
Versatile Styling : My day can change at the last minute…(anyone relate?) Therefore, getting creative with my wardrobe is a must & pieces need to be dressed up and down. Today starts with 2 x Diana Ferrari Style Sessions (left pic) wearing this stunning lace dress (gifted) followed by a stop by at our studio & errands (right pic).
If you would love to know how you can update your look book in for a 1 hour Style Update Session $99 at the VC Style Studio or if you are not close by you can always request a Skype Session with us!
