How to Know Your Style and Create A Look

by | Blog | 0 comments

Well that’s easier said than done!

But watch this space. I’ve been thinking of writing a blog for the past 14 years and I’ve finally sat down to start one which I am sure will help!

Hello Leah sat on tree branch

I will share ideas on knowing your style and creating a look that expresses your true and best self from the inside-out.

For many years and for many reasons I struggled to ‘wear’ my style; to start with there was a lack of finances and interest or understanding in the family.

Very soon my height became an overwhelming issue…even when I did find an item of clothing I liked and could afford – it didn’t fit me anyway!

I learnt to sew and customise but my creative and alternative preferences drew confusing comments from others and I didn’t understand how to make the best of my figure.

I was mostly sad that I’d never had a wardrobe of clothes that felt like me, let alone fit me!

I experimented, explored and studied to gain the knowledge I needed to dress my natural colour and body shape. Over time I found freedom and developed the skill and resources needed to curate a wardrobe that worked for me.

(An ongoing project that I enjoy even if still frustrating at times.)

I established simplyLeah in 2008 and trained in Image Consultancy so I could help others with their own image confidence.

I’m certain it’s not just me who wants to look in a mirror, see a reflection of their real self and then get on with their day feeling good?!

So please tell me your struggles in regard to image…
