The 1 Rule for confidence is to be yourself!

Young Bohémienne: Natalie Clifford Barney (187...

I meet so many women who are uncomfortable in their own skin; after all there is a fine line between demure and abashed. While one is a character trait the other is a result of one’s perception of self, usually a negative one. The last time I felt awkward and cringed in my own skin was in high school, in my attempt to be cool, I wore a tight-fitting cocktail dress. Black lace and a bright yellow bow was all it took to make me feel like a turkey on show! Thank God for my father, a man of principle and obviously taste, who forbade me to walk out of the house looking like the bride of Frankenstein. As any normal teenager, I rolled my eyes and protested, but secretly I was so happy that he made me change. My ego didn’t let me publicly admit my fashion faux pas but that day I learned a valuable lesson, never try to be someone else!

It’s one thing to be inspired and quite another to erase one’s own identity and absorb someone else’s persona. My inspiration by the likes of those gorgeous Bohemian style divas leads me to don flowing skirts, but it’s still me underneath the boho skirt. Just like my skin tone, which is brown, cream and uneven, my fashion sense isn’t defiantly anything but always comfortable.

Lace shirts with frayed denim shorts and gold jewellery – that’s me! Hair colour that changes more frequently than the weather courtesy global warming, fashion style that is constantly evolving, adapting, and always experimenting that’s who I am. What about you? Is your personality hiding in the closet or tucked away in the back of your wardrobe? Waiting in the sidelines for the approval of peers, fashion magazines, friends, family, the cat next door?

In one of my earlier posts I had written that the one must have accessory for a plus size woman is confidence, I reiterate: the number one rule for confidence is to be yourself!

Hairstyles and everything you need to know about it!

imgres-15 imgres-14 imgres-13

imgres-11 imgres-10 imgres-9 imgres-7 imgres-6 imgres-5 imgres-3 imgres-2 imgres-1 imgresThere is enough information floating around regarding face shapes and what hairstyles suit best. Here is a different perspective, from someone who has experimented with knee length, to short crops and everything in between. I have had my hair permed, straightened, coloured orange, red, brown, and purple. Trust me when I tell you that I have learned a thing or two regarding hairstyles.

Hair Truth #1:
Don’t copy a celebrity or a friend with a great hairdo. Their hairstyle looks best on THEM, copy them only if you are the same face shape, size, personality and most importantly the same hair type as them.
That is the sad truth that even some hair stylists don’t tell you, each “look” can be carried only by a particular hair type, not to mention other factors like, quantity and texture.
Irrespective what any hair expert has told you, every hair is unique, for example limp hair. Hair that is limp might be so just because it’s too long; the weight drags it. Cut the same limp hair shorter and you might notice a bounce or a natural wave, it will even look a lot healthier. If you have (I envy you, if you do) a full head of limp hair it will behave very differently from someone who has scanty hair that is also limp.
Factors like pregnancy, medication, illness, the kind of stress and strain (colouring, blow-drying, straightening, perming etc.) also affect you hair condition and will change with altering the factors that affect them. Example: eating healthy, going off a particular medication, post pregnancy etc.

Hair Truth #2:
Each person has a unique hair cycle and hair length. Each strand of hair has a life cycle; it grows a certain length and then falls off. Pregnancy and some medication that alter your hormonal levels can change this cycle. Hormonal changes in pregnancy tend to extend the life cycle of hair, meaning they tend to live longer, giving an appearance of a thicker head of hair. Post delivery, the hormones are back to normal and all that extended life is abruptly cut short, resulting in massive hair loss.
Find out your natural length of hair, mine is until my knees but I have a friend whose hair never grows beyond her shoulder. Why is this important? Because it will help you choose your hairstyle, for example if you have shoulder length hair you might want to consider going in for extensions if you love that romantic tousled look.

Hair Truth #3:
There is no prefect hairstyle that you can roll out of bed and still look glam. Everyone has bad hair days and then some really bad hair days. If you choose a style that is closest to your natural style (poker straight or curly), chances are you will spend less time trying to get it to behave the way you want it to.
There are a lot of factors that affect hairstyles, apart form the above points, weather also affects you hairstyle. Humidity kills any blow dry or styling like curling or straightening, high temperatures makes you sweat and depending on how much your scalp sweats (yes, you have sweat glands on your scalp) you can find your hair turning greasy, ruining you look. Intense sunlight can even bleach your hair. Living in a dusty or polluted environment can also turn your hair dry, brittle and lack lustre. Basically the dust/pollutants stick to your hair, the more you condition your hair the more it sticks! Drive with the windows down for an hour and feel your hair; you’ll know what I mean.

The fundamental truth to a good hairstyle is to know your hair type, which can change depending on diet, physical condition and environment. When I had orange hair, I found it amusing how my ‘look’ changed when I was in broad daylight (looked like my head was on fire-absolutely loved it!) as opposed to when I was indoors. It changed tone depending on what I wore and the backdrop, I stayed away from orange walls and green shirts! I even had to change my makeup, had to go with one that had less orange pigments in it. I had to trim my thick black eyebrows very thin, etc.

The bottom line is, you need to experiment and find a style that is convenient to your lifestyle, flatters you body shape and suits you hair type. Yes, your body shape contributes greatly to your hair style, which might seem odd, since you only focus on your head. The truth is, your hairstyle can take years off your face and kilos of your waist, IF chosen correctly and the inverse is also true.
Personally, with my style experiments I found that long, slightly curled locks that fell across my face and covered most of my shoulders and back, gave me a slimmer look. As I was 90 kilos when pregnant, the soft curls that fell across my shoulders took the focus away from my bugle and centred it on shiny, dark curls. For a more styled look, I would straighten my hair and let it fall across my face, creating an illusion of slimming length, hiding my double chin and puffy face. Here are few photos, to illustrate, let me know if it worked or didn’t.

Knee-high boots, aviators and scarves. What’s not to love?

bootsboots2There are a few fashion basics that promise to transform anyone into a diva, almost like having a personal fairy godmother. For example, you can transform a boring t-shirt and jeans into a fashionable ensemble just by donning a pair of knee-high boots. Nothing in the fashion world holds such magical fashion powers like knee-high boots. Pair them with a shift dress, jeans, mini shirt, basically anything and you will turn heads, guaranteed. Even ‘pretty woman’ Julia Roberts needed their magic.kneehighboots

Aviators or any other shape of sunglasses that suits your face is the Midas touch that can transform a bad hair day, acne, puffy eyes, dark circles or any other facial disaster into a showcase for chic! Throw in a gorgeous scarf and you are an instant style icon. Having these basic fashion essentials can ensure that you never have to step out looking anything less than ultra cool – always.

Scarves in colours that brighten up your face are an absolute must; stock them in different patterns, materials and designs. Walk in to an optical store and purchase sunglasses, I’m partial to aviators, which suit your face. Take your phone and click pictures of yourself wearing them, it’s hard to make out if something suits you by just looking in the mirror, the coloured tint of the glasses tends to interfere. A photo of you wearing it will give you an accurate picture. Buy a few styles, in different shades; these should form your fashion basics. Always make sure that your sunglasses have a high UV protection rate.

Knee high boots are my personal weakness and I can never have enough of them. However, you should have a minimum of two, one in a classic comfortable style that gives you a classy look and can be worn during the day without spraining your ankle. Every woman should possess one piece of footwear that should exude sex appeal, just wearing it should make you feel like a million dollars and there is nothing more fabulous than owning a knee high boot that is sexy.

With winter a few months away, at least for us in Australia, saving up for a gorgeous knee-high boot is a top Fashion priority. Like everything else in life, Fashion should be planned and thought out. A good quality item will last long and bring you tremendous joy, so think ahead. Fashion is and always should be an extension of your personality; the idea of great apparel is to make YOU feel good. So invest in a few fashion basics with not just your money but also your time, look around, experiment with different styles, until you decide what works and what doesn’t. In the words of Revlon, because your worth it!

How to be a budget Fashionista, in five easy steps.

Nicole_Kidman_wearing_Ladymatic_in_red_goldfashionista

Did you ever walk into a mall/shop/party and immediately notice someone, who appeared confidant, cool and fashionably dressed? That’s a fashionista, the complete package of personality and flattering attire. It’s not your body type, good looks or just your outfit, it’s the entire package that makes you a Fashionista. It’s how you create the Chic image, irrespective of your body type or looks. Don’t be fooled by the biased media hype that you need to have a supermodel figure or movie star good looks to become a style icon. All you really need is a flattering wardrobe, good accessories and loads of confidence.

The step-by-step guide to be a budget Fashionista:

1. Love yourself! Appreciate yourself and respect your body. You are a female, one of God’s most precious creations. You are unique and already beautiful, you don’t need to look like someone else or wear what others are wearing to look good. You only need to discover how best to reveal your personality and to flatter your body. Fall in love with your self, discover your quirky behaviour, appreciate your personality and then create your own fashion style that reflects all that.

2. Determine your body type: Find celebrities who are that shape and study their styles to get an idea of what will flatter your image. Celebrities have style guides and designers to help them bring out their best, you can take advantage of all that free advice. Scan as many images as you can to find out what look worked and what didn’t, and how that relates to your wardrobe.
E.g.: Apple shaped: wide shoulders, heavier top than bottom.
Celebrities: Catherine Zeta Jones, Elizabeth Hurley, Jennifer Hudson etc.
V-neck tops, top flattering/emphasizing dresses, skinny jeans all form their basic wardrobe essentials.

3. Discover your colour: Stand in front of a full length mirror and wear all your outfits. Grade each outfit (1 -10) in terms of look (does it flatter you body shape or draw attention to parts you rather hide) and style (does it give you a frumpy look or does it strike as classy). Discard/donate any item that fails to get above 5 points. While you’re doing that find out which colours seemed to brighten up your face and which make you look drained or tired. Yes, colours have that effect depending on your skin tone. E.g., depending on how tanned you are, different shades of pink will suit you. Every woman has one particular colour that just makes her sparkle, note this down, this is the colour that you should look for in accessories like, eye makeup, scarves, pendants, earrings etc.
If there is nothing in your wardrobe that stands out, then it might be time to head off to the nearest mall and go towards the scarves section and try on different coloured scarves. Look for the colour which, when draped around your neck, seems to brighten your face. That’s your colour.

4. Determine your favourite feature about your self: Is it your beautifully sculpted calves? Your flawless skin? Your perfectly manicured hands or feet? Your slender neck? Thick shiny hair? Sparkling eyes? Whatever it is, make it your signature style feature. Every outfit you wear should accentuate that feature.

5. Invest in a set of classic accessories: Shoes, bags, scarves, belts, bags and jewellery. After Step 3, you should have a rough idea of what is your personal style and what wardrobe essentials are required. Try to buy accessories that frame the face like earrings, necklaces, scarves and makeup, in ‘your colour’, this will help brighten your entire look. Keep your personal style preference in mind when you go shopping and look out for items that complement or build your personal style. E.g. If you have discovered that you are a vintage girl at heart then keep an eye for any accessories that have a vintage appeal. You can pair them with a formal office attire whilst emphasising your individuality.

These simple steps can help you transform your image since most of the time it’s not a lack of designer pieces (there are only so many places you can wear a valentino gown) but a lack of theme, coordination and often unflattering pieces that prevents the Fashionista in you to shine through.
Give these simple steps a go and let me know how it turns out!

Next up, simple make up tricks that promise to transform!

In defence of her Royal highness- Kate Middleton.

The fashion world is aghast at her highness; the future queen recycles her wardrobe! They call it a fashion Faux Pas.

I rise to her defence, after all we both are bargain hunters, but she had the good fortune to live near a second-hand designer wear store. Since becoming the Duchess of Cambridge she hasn’t frequented her favourite bargain shop but she does repeat her wardrobe, and why shouldn’t she? I think we need more practical public figures like her to make popular (a fashion revolution) the idea that clothes should be worn to express our individuality and not the other way around where we serve as mannequins for the ever-mighty garment.

I still carry pieces form five years back that I cannot seem to part with because I consider it so essential to my personal style. I can imagine the horror of wearing a gorgeous garment just once and then having to donate it to someone. I love wearing beautiful garments, which to me are like works of art, for the sheer joy of feeling beautiful in them. The feel of the garment, the fall of the fabric, the cut, the form… pure fashion climax!

Talking of fashion Faux pas, isn’t it hilarious that every celebrity who has been accused of it was always wearing, wait for it, a designer label? The red carpet is where the stars strut their stuff and the fashion critiques stand there deciding who is a fashionsta and who is a fashion disaster. Personally, I think a true fashionsta is someone who has a personality so bright that it outshines whatever they are wearing and all you end up noticing is her infections smile, the heart warming laughter, her amazing personality or her kind heart. Anything short of that and you have reduced yourself to a mannequin, a clothes rack, a clothes hanger in the cupboard.

A woman is a lot more than a showcase for the latest rend, she is mystery, intrigue, adventure, mischief, love and life all rolled into one. Let’s not degrade ourselves into labels, come on women; it’s time for a fashion revolution. Lead on Kate!

Seriously, am I the only one who saw the movie The Devil wears Prada and focused on the real message?

The one must have accessory for every plus-size woman- Confidence!

Ana Paula @ Plus Size Model :: nov2011

It’s all about the attitude, a confidant one goes a long way in getting you labelled as amazing! While every model/actress/artist, basically every woman, vies to be known as the most beautiful, very few are tapping the extremely accessible amazing. If you are anything like me, being known as an amazing woman is just as, if not better, than being known as a beautiful looking woman. Being known, as a beautiful woman is any day more flattering than a beautiful looking woman, because looks fade with time and not everyone agrees on what is beautiful, but your soul does not age, it only evolves.

Personality is what makes the guy you have a crush on, approach you and have a chat. Ever met someone who wasn’t the prettiest in the room but managed to have the maximum number of genuine friends, off course you have, that’s your best friend. She isn’t a hottie but she is the darling of your life, the one who makes you laugh and cries with you when you’re hurting and not necessarily in that order.

Personality doesn’t just get you admires or friends; they get you mates for life. A strong confidant personality is a major component, but often neglected, of being beautiful. Abraham Lincoln wasn’t the handsomest of men, in fact quite the contrary, neither was George Bernard Shaw, but both men in their respective fields, wowed and inspired millions and still do today. Look at spidey, until he was a gawky lanky teenager he was oblivious, gets bitten by a spider, learns to hang up side down without falling, starts oozing confidence and every chic has a secret crush on him!

Seriously, how many villains have you had a crush on, unless you have a thing for bad boys, not matter how handsome? Any admirers for Tom Felton? Alexander Ludwig? Tom Hiddleston? No, Heath Ledger doesn’t count, he totally rocked in A Knight’s tale and 10 things I hate About you, plus he had paint on as the joker, doesn’t count.

Confidence makes you comfortable in your own skin, which basically means the real you isn’t hiding behind some pieces of fabric but is free to shine to mesmerise. Remember Donna Noble from Dr. Who; she wasn’t the prettiest of Dr. Who companions but the most loved, why? Do you even have to ask? Personality, she is plus size but her confidence is refreshing and by the end of the season you are completely in love with her, she almost overshadows the ever-charming time traveling youthful Dr. Who.

Oprah winfrey, Queen Latifa, are few examples of women who are beautiful more for their personality than for their looks. When did being plus size mean that you fell in the ‘non good-looking’ category? Christina Schmidt is one of the most gorgeous women and yes she is plus size! There are many, many more examples of beautiful women but a strong, confidant women can make belly fat, cellulite and extra pounds all disappear. Now that’s the secret no one wants to let out, but I’m calling for a Fashion revolution, want to join me?

Lets start a Fashion Revolution!

imgres-6
As we traverse through history it is quite shocking and saddening that we, women have been slaves to the dictates of prevailing fashion trends. Corsets that barely let a woman breath and even the odd little toe being severed so that one could fit in a shoe that was a full size smaller for the more genteel appearance of good breeding.
Having said that I must admit that fashion has accommodated to the demands of changing environments, the war most notably. Motoring suits, traveling suits, golfing suits etc. had been designed to do to exactly what fashion was supposed to do in the first place, make the wearer comfortable while still looking stylish.
Women’s liberation movement did a lot for women’s fashion but sadly today I find a reversal of the trend. In the old days we had the hobble skirts, wide at the hips and extremely narrow at the ankles, hence the name and today we have super short shorts where half your bottom lies exposed. It’s also fashionable if your pocket linings are longer than your denim shorts.
Offcourse, I should hardly be pointing that out, given that in my college days I used to run around (in a girls hostel) in denim shorts that were shorter than my T-shirts and I did raise a lot of eyebrows, mostly the nuns. In my defence I never wore it in public, no, a hostel full of girls and nuns does not count!
Rebellion? Maybe, but I blame the culture, the role models, where are the Amelia Earharts? Emmeline Pankhurst, Rosa Parks? Hunger games is a good start. Women need to be reminded of the innate power that resides within. I love JRR Tolkien but I would have loved him more if Gandalf had been a sorceress! That way C S Lewis does a fabulous job in creating Lucy Pevensie and the equally strong Susan. However, their personalities are lost in the sweeping landscape and adrenalin rush of the graphics.
It’s time we, women/girls/teens, started a new revolution, not a liberation movement but a fashion revolution. Fashion means a popular style or practice, so let us make this a popular practice, to acknowledge our inner strength and to embrace our destiny as beings of love, light and strength.
Let us as girls look upon women of wisdom and be inspired by them to march forward in life as confident women. Let us as teens idolise women of strength and character and emulate these traits in our lives. Let us, as women become role models to our sisters, colleagues, friends, and nieces, to be all that we can be. Let us as mothers mould our daughters and remind our daughter’s daughters what it means to be a true woman.
Lets start a fashion revolution!

Love your body!

In this day and age there is a lot of talk about weight and appearance. Nutritionist distributing diet plans and hollering out health risks involved with being obese. Plus size women demanding acceptance for their genetic predisposition and ironically joining in the chorus are naturally size zero models!

Where do I fit in? I’m trying to get everyone to focus on the main purpose, to look and feel good! If you accept your body type then you will be less sensitized to what the world hollers out at you and the worldly wise will have something to remark one way or another.

As a kid who grew up in an Arab land where dressing was ultra chic but conservative and then finding my self in college where the style was uber cool and relaxed, I was a square peg in a round hole!

Four years later I arrived with my ripped jeans, tussled hair, heavy silver accessories and varsity tees straight into the corporate world where I was told to chop off my ‘overflowing hairdo’ and get some suits, black or charcoal if you please.

Now, I live in sunny Adelaide where I am back to my ripped jean shorts, flip-flops, floral tops and aviators to give a dollop of oomph. I can easily transform into a form fitting charcoal suit with court shoes and a tightly pulled bun. My stint in the aviation industry taught me that a neat hairdo and stockings always gives the impression of being well groomed.

I learned a lot from being cabin crew for one of the leading airlines of the world. One of the most shocking lessons was that looks aren’t everything, grooming is! Yes, I never believed it until I experienced it! Did you know that aviation uniforms are designed to make everyone look alike? Yes, the idea is to make every crewmember look like as if he or she just rolled off an assembly line! Which means everyone had to look similar whether they were tall or short (minimum height), fat (highest weight acceptable for that height) or thin (minimum acceptable weight), beautiful or average. There were variations I assure you, the criteria for choosing a crew was primarily personality, looks actually came second.

The uniforms are so styled that they overpower the wearers look and instead stress on the bold colours, the strong style and the overall effect. Once the most gorgeous girls wore them they were transformed into, wait for it, mannequins that afforded no competition what so ever to the overwhelming design, contour and colours. Yes, that’s exactly why normal guys in a uniform always look so much dapper and the wow factor just falls off along with the uniform! That’s also another reason, no crewmember actually post pictures of themselves in their uniform, we look much, much better in casuals.

So what’s my point? Clothes and good grooming is what one needs to look awesome. So stop beating yourself over your body type, offcourse by all means exercise if you have to loose those heath-affecting pounds but not because you want to look good. Looking good and feeling good about your body has nothing to do with your weight unless you intend to pose for a bikini photo-shoot for the cover of vogue, other than that it really isn’t important.

The biggest mistake a woman can do is try to look like someone she is not. You need to discover you true unique style, if you are a flower child (I know I am!) then stop trying to wear form fitting little dresses, even if you have a fabulous figure. It’s not you and that should be reason enough. If you always felt comfortable in leather and tight jeans and not just because ‘so and so’ looked wow in it then by all means go for it.

Naturally, if you haven’t been brainwashed by fashion houses and fashion forums into believing what is cool and what is not, then you will ideally end up choosing a style that not only feels good but also compliments your personality and brings out your personality.

So why do so many women end up not looking their natural best? Many factors, brainwashing is top most but also equally important is the fear to be themselves. I should know, I always wanted to wear denim but in my family it was considered unbecoming, I still cannot get myself to wear jeans for socially important events where the dress code is casual.

Another major factor is availability. How many times have you walked into a store wanting something and were told it’s not available, out of stock, no one makes them any more etc.? As a denim girl my signature outfit is stone washed sky blue jeans with a cool, tad oversized white shirt, usually tied. The problem with white shirts is that they never stay white for too long. Having three toddlers with a love for finger painting doesn’t help either.

I cannot recall the number of times I have come away frustrated at not being able to find such a classic, no, not the ones with the fancy cufflinks, no, not the latest form fitting stretchable office whites, no, just a simple white shirt, no, no pockets, it kills the ‘look’.

That’s why I’m excited about thebargainboutique.com.au it is supposed to be the answer to my prayers. With classic pieces and basic standard items that are essential to every wardrobe in classic colours and fabulous fabric, it sounds like a dream come true. I’m waiting fingers crossed and hoping for some goodies that they will be giving during their launch.

I’ll keep you posted!
