Style, identity and where to shop for ’plus size’ clothes
há um dia
28:14This week I am joined by professional copywriter and fashion lover Georgina Nestor. Georgina is wildly successful in her field and shares the same values as I do around the importance of showing up authentically, not caring what others think and saying it how it is. Georgina loves fashion and make up and her image is a really important part of who she is. She believes in using clothes and make up to improve your mood and be successful in life. As a plus size woman she finds it really difficult to shop on the high street. We discuss where she shops, great jeans and how there is still a long way to go for representation in the shops. She still finds it easier to shop online and usually finds that bigger clothes in the shops are frumpy and tucked away in the corner of a store. Things still need to change. I hope you enjoy this episode. Find Georgina here. Follow Georgina on Instagram here. Follow Lisa on Instagram here. #stylepodcast #personalstylepodcast #plussize #outfittips
Confusing work dress codes and trusting your gut with your style
30:45This week a big City law firm sent an email round to staff saying 'dress like you are going to Annabel's (the exclusive private members club) - if that's not confusing as a work dress code I don't know what is. The subtext is ditch your suits unless you have an important meeting but what do you wear the rest of the time? We discuss this and lots more in this week's chatty episode. The common thread that runs through all of these podcasts is how important it is to wear what you love and understand what that is. Until you spend a bit of time working out the styles of clothes that really suit you and make you feel 'right' it is easy to get distracted and make mistakes. Instead of focusing on trends, concentrate instead on building a wardrobe that has longevity with key pieces that really suit you and make you happy. If you suit skinny jeans and all the fashion editors are saying they are 'out' and you don't suit wide leg jeans which are 'in' isn't it better to wear the shape that suits you? Once you find your personal style it becomes easier to shop and pull together a wardrobe you love. Listening to your gut and working out what works is time well spent. This is the main topic of discussion with today's guest Finula Crowe of dress brand New Day Originals. Fin created the brand in lockdown in 2020 when she had to shut down her event dress boutique. She really hasn't looked back since and now creates beautiful, sustainable and wearable dresses that elevate any wardrobe.✨ Check out New Day Originals here. Find Finula on Instagram here.

Fashion, hormones and jumpsuits - how to dress to feel good
35:13This week on the podcast I am joined by Hannah Pearn, an expert in acupuncture for fertility. Hannah LOVES fashion and she's been on the podcast before and spoke with such passion about both topics, fertility and fashion, I invited her on again. Hannah helps many women struggling to conceive with her specific acupuncture and other therapies at her London clinic and with online courses (her website is below if this affects you). As a person, Hannah believes in the power of fashion, she always dresses up for her clinic days and she has a signature style. She has an impressive haul of jumpsuits in particular which really work for her life and style. You know the saying, if it 'aint broke, don't fix it. How lovely to simplify your fashion choices in a busy world full of so many choices! She also chats about how you shouldn't shop with PMT and how your cycle affects how you feel like getting dressed. Fascinating stuff! Like I always say on this podcast, find your personal style and everything falls into place.

How to choose glasses that really suit you with Zoe Cosby
43:17This is a special episode all about choosing the right glasses for your face and personal style. It's actually a really difficult decision and glasses often aren't cheap either so you want to get it right. Zoe has lots of tips to share and is a total expert in the eyewear sector. Whilst face shape is a consideration, personal style is more important because you've got to feel like yourself! Glasses can really make an outfit, they can be a statement, or they can drag down an outfit too if you play it too safe. The thing is, there's no need to play it safe these days as there is so much choice. Rather than go to Specsavers (no offense Specsavers) Zoe talks about all the wonderful independent brands and shops that should not be overlooked. There really is something out there for everyone. If you prefer a more classic look she has the brands for you, if you'd rather make a bold statement then there are some excellent brands out there that can really elevate your look in an instant. If you've got to wear glasses, why not have some fun doing it🤷♀️ If you'd like some professional advice directly with Zoe you can book a Zoom consultation with her or she can even accompany you to choose your glasses. Find Zoe here. Send her a DM and she'll be in touch.

The Monthly Mash-Up - with Sally Smy
34:40The Monthly Mash Up episode is when I am joined by fellow stylists to talk about what we've spotted in the shops, trends, TV, and anything that's been going on around us this month that is (mostly) style-related. In this week's episode, I manage to offend the whole City of Portsmouth completely by accident whilst trying to make an important point! Luckily Sally of Queen Bee Styling was on hand to dig me out of a hole and eloquently explain where I was coming from! The point was, people dress down to hide, it can show a lack of confidence. There was a particular brand we were discussing when this conversation came about. It's a very well-known brand that we both find in our client's wardrobes and 9/10 end up throwing away! Tune in to hear more.

Elevating your outfits with jewellery with Amy Elson
26:26Accessories can really make an outfit. It's a super quick and easy way to add personality and interest and also to look like you've got dressed intentionally. Even when you are wearing a pair of jeans and a white tee, by adding jewellery you can create a great outfit. This week on the podcast I am joined by my favourite jewellery designer Amy Elson, the designer behind Chambers & Beau. All Chambers & Beau jewellery is handmade in Amy's studio in Devon UK. She started doing personalised jewellery when no-one else really was. Her pieces are unique and make really thoughtful gifts and she is also a master of layering. Layering jewellery is a quick and easy way to add a bit of cool to your outfit. Listen to Amy tell the story behind Chambers & Beau and how she stumbled into having her own jewellery business.

Ageism and amazing confidence as you get older with top curve model Rachel Peru
25:20This week I am joined by very successful and very beautiful 52 year old silver haired curve model Rachel Peru. Rachel recently posted a reel on her Instagram (see reel here) of her wearing a tailored blazer with a bralette underneath. This post got lots and lots of positive comments but it also attracted a lot of negative comments like "tell nanna to take her medication" (from a man) and lots of "you are too old for this, put it away" (from women). The comments were worse on Facebook which is interesting... Tune in to hear our chat about how this felt for Rachel and why we think this happens. Why don't women support women and why do the media still tell women over 40 not to wear certain things and blend into the background? 😤 Getting older can be the best time in your life in so many ways and feeling confident in your outfits is one of them. Hopefully as we get older we get more into our vibe and know ourselves a lot better, it's a shame the trolls don't feel the same.
