16 Mar Seasons Change
With this season’s change comes excitement for a new beginning, dressing for the mood and moment, enjoying the very best the season has to offer. Fashion aside, I don’t know about you but I’m definitely counting down the days until I can party with friends and get dressed up again! Driving the miles to a client’s house while hearing our premier’s announcement on the radio stating restrictions being eased the end of March ignited excitement for me! Had I been elsewhere I’m almost certain a Beyoncé dance would have broken out, that’s for sure.
In case you missed that last part, “Restrictions are easing”, Easter Long Weekend is just around the corner, its time to enjoy the very best the season has to offer. Whether you’re excited to explore the city lights once again or perhaps you’ve planned a last-minute getaway our March SC Magazine is just for you!

One trend favourite on the “what goes around comes around” revival this season is the drop waist and corset styles found in tops and dresses, a perfectly positioned style to synch at the waistline and smooth the hips creating the illusion of a lengthened and leaner torso that most if not all women yearn for in an outfit don’t you think?
How to style: Add a leather jacket for a little high street edge to your look plus a lifestyle sneaker or your favourite pair of boots.

My Top 5 tips for shopping online
I once had a love-hate relationship with Online shopping! There I said it! Couldn’t understand why so many loved the process of staring at a screen unable to touch and feel a garment in person. My personalised and virtual online styling packages crafted for individual clients located interstate and overseas soon put a stop to that. You see back in 2018 and way before Covid-19 my marketing gal and I crafted style packages that allowed ME the stylist to style and shop for YOU the client allowing you to reap the benefits of shopping with me no matter where you were placed around the globe.
My time and exposure on the net has been a game-changer, with many little lessons learned along the way of do’s and don’ts. I can happily consider myself a self-proclaimed expert. Here are 5 tips that will hopefully make your experience as smooth as the red wine you sip while scrolling through the web sourcing your latest fab finds.
1. Shop with brands you’re familiar with in sizing and fit
The standard size chart that brands offer is hard to rely on as it is inconsistent from brand to brand, I highly recommend shopping the brands where you’re familiar with how their clothing/shoes fit on your body type. Reach out for more questions before you make a purchase, you will be surprised at the responses you receive.
2. Shop with brands who offer easy and free returns
This one is a deal-breaker with me! I loathe credit notes, almost all of the time they are forgotten and never used. Read the fine print before you buy taking time to read how a retail brand operates, particularly when it comes to overseas returns and exchanges. This will allow you to freely shop all the garments you desire without the fear of being stuck with a garment you either can’t return, exchange or receive a full refund on.
3. Support brands that give back
Did you know there are currently 346,000 women unemployed across Australia as I type this, just as many will experience some form of sexual harassment and domestic violence. Thousands of women are struggling and have lost their confidence. This International Women’s Day, the cult Australian label SIR will donate $1 from each and every sale to a series of women’s charities throughout the month of March. Working towards supporting Women’s Community Shelter’s” SIR has proudly partnered with i=Change to support three incredible projects, to help improve our planet and the lives of women and children in need around the world to date raising funds of $27,765 and counting… Track their amazing progress while you shop via the link here!
4. Subscribe to your favourites
Sign up to retailers’ email newsletters and follow them on social media to take advantage of any special offers, discounts and a heads-up on upcoming sales.
5. Rely on a virtual stylist (that’s me) to do it all for you!
