How accessories drastically improved my style and gave me confidence! |

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. 

Not so.

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

Sylvia, it was very inspiring to get a glimpse of your style metamorphosis! Thanks for sharing. 🙂



I’m glad you enjoyed it Raquel. I share my style journey because I think it’s good to realise for everyone that great style is a journey and that a lot of it can be learned….



Gorgeous! I love the way Jessica accessorizes. xo

I’m a stay at home wife on a budget so my question is how can I pick accessorizes that don’t look cheap? Thanks



A tough question to answer quickly but I would say not to go for imitations. For example a good arty wooden necklace looks better than a fake plastic silver necklace. Of course there will be lots more on this topic in my course.
