If you have been here for a while and enjoyed my personal style and the articles I have written over the years, you may think I always knew how to style myself.
In fact my style was less than fabulous not so long ago, especially when I lived in Australia which is only 10 years ago.
My style was very casual and very unsophisticated. I only had one tiny wardrobe and no accessories to speak off and when I see photos of those days it’s mainly pants and t-shirts.
When I moved to Singapore and started socializing here, It quickly became apparent that my style was lacking.
My friends commented on why on earth I took a back pack (even if it was a fancy one) to an evening gala.
Or why I did not have a proper handbag.
There were no pumps in my closet or any other fancy shoes with some kind of heel.
My jewelry was kept in a small jewelry box in a closet.
I had stopped wearing earrings completely.
I totally neglected bags, jewelry, belts, hats and shoes. The things that make an outfit come together.
I have always loved fashion so of course I had some lovely clothes, but somehow I did not have the tools for the complete outfit.
I can see it so clearly now when I look back to those images.
A lot has changed!
I now know how important the right accessories are to complete my outfit and create an overall image that makes me feel confident and beautiful.
I believe that the key to completing my style and creating a great overall outfit were accessories
