How to Change Your Style by Being More Authentic

Today I’m talking about my most recent experience with my style. And it has to do with visibility. I heard a lot about this topic, both in business courses and in business or self-development coaching. And what does this have to do with you, you ask ;)? Well, if you don’t want to be visible for some reason, it will absolutely influence your style. Being visible is about not being afraid to show who you are. It’s about being YOU. What I’ve noticed lately is that I’ve spent most of my life hiding, trying to go unnoticed, for several reasons. One of them is the fear of being judged, criticized. It’s a very common fear. Of course, I’ve heard about being visible more than a thousand times, and though I understood very well the idea, it never really sunk in… maybe because I wasn’t ready to listen yet, or maybe…

How to Choose the Best Pieces for You (Stylist in Your Pocket)

Today I want to tell you about a simple way to choose the best pieces for you. And how you can you have a Stylist – in this case, me – in your pocket ;) Sounds weird?

Since I couldn’t go with her (I live in Portugal), we did a Personal Shopping with messenger/email: Cristina sent me messages and emails with the pieces she found and the outfits she was thinking of doing, and we made the ideal looks for the interviews. Now on the Easter Holidays, a similar situation happened: Cristina wanted to buy a gift for my daughter Catarina, but we couldn’t be together at the time. So she sent me pictures of the pieces/looks she liked and I have her feedback…

Makeover: Alexandra’s Before & After

Do you like makeovers? I love to see and make them ;) Today I’m writing about Alexandra’s makeover. She gained some weight because she had two kids in a row. Her body changed so she didn’t know what to wear anymore. She was also feeling a little outdated – she did not know how to use some of the trends she saw other women using. And she had a common doubt: how to look chicer and less sporty / casual (she has to be practical and comfortable during the day but also look sophisticated for meetings during the day). I gave her some tips to favor her body right now. And to be able to use the new trends easily, and also create casual-chic outfits, I showed her my app that solves both situations. You can see more here. The looks we chose for the makeover have to do with lengthening Alexandra’s figure so she feels more elegant, and also wearing the pieces she likes the most…
