Dressing detox : in the cabinet of a corporate pen

 

C & rsquo; is the story of a corporate pen, me, Karin, which crosses the path of Private stylist. Result : a wardrobe detox home quickfire. No jacket reversal, but three hours of hard work, and certainly many beautiful looks set.

Dressing detox : or how to put his wardrobe to diet !

My profession is to be creative for my clients and as rigorous and organized. So my need is to look professional, credible, generate confidence.

Using the services of Pascale LEULIET, private stylist, it is the will to me out relative to the other so that we "see" my personality. Its offer appealed to me right away : le course "sartorial signature", You Dressing detox, Personal shopping au Look book personnel.

Dressing detox, or closet commotion !

A Dressing detox, it does not just happen. the day before, I transfer my closet was, to engage the winter session. I tidy, as always my business by garment category ! And I find that there are tons. So I decide to remove some. I really want to have a minimum choice.

My greatest need is to appear active, original and trendy ! Il y a toujours ce fameux moment que l’on traverse toutes : choisir toujours globalement les mêmes tenues, miser sur les couleurs sombres pour faire « corporate ».

Mon attente ? Repérer les pièces essentielles de mon dressing, chasser de ma vue les pièceshas been”, et ranger autrement mes affaires.

Pascale a eu le chic pour choisir directement des assemblages de tenues professionnelles. A partir d’une veste et d’un pantalon. Mon rêve ? Peu de pièces, mais belles et qui me vont. Elle sait déjà qui je suis à travers le questionnaire que j’ai rempli pour elle. Elle connait déjà mes goûts et mes envies.

Ensuite, opération optimisation du dressing.

Comme les enfants (et comme tout le monde je crois), je suis incapable de voir mes tenues si je ne les ai pas sous les yeux. Pascale a alors imaginé quatre parties dans mon dressing : business, soirée, cocooning, et mixte pour les robes. Après cela, everything is clear, I see, and for the first time, how I kept some to work, exit, stay at home.

She was able to find solutions and efficient. Result : good extracted stack of coins as inappropriate, dated or outdated, but finally the dressing room is uncluttered. He finally breathe and I also breathe.

Le plus dur : the break with certain colors.

Ah beliefs… From finance-IT-bank sphere, I thought black gave serious, que le gris faisait corporate. Mais ça, c’était il y a 20 years old”, m’a dit Pascale ! Furthermore, ces couleurs ne me vont pas. Et quand j’y pense, enfant et ado, je portais tout le temps du bleu et beaucoup de bleu marine. Indeed, c’était ma couleur préférée pour les manteaux, vestes, et pantalons. Alors pourquoi ai-je viré au noir de la sorte jeune adulte, je ne sais pas. La mode, l’envie de me cacher aussi sans doute.

Donc dire au revoir à ma veste noire à fines rayures blanches Ralf Lauren Denim a été dur, pour rien ne vous cacher.

Aussi enlever certaines pièces que je ne mets pas forcément du dressing, qui sont devenue habituelles, sorte de vêtements doudous, a été très difficile, même si Pascale me disait que cela ne m’allait pas du tout !

J’ai dû aussi dire adieu à ce pantalon large et un peu court bleu marine, pourtant si confortable.

Voici un des look composé par Pascale. Mon foulard Betty Janis que j’avais oublié dans le fond de mon tiroir, une veste grège en velours, un petit top rose pâle, le bas noir, des hauts talons et hop ! J’ai porté cette tenue pour co-animer un atelier et elle a beaucoup plu.

 

 

Se voir dans la glace est un choc.

Pascale m’a conseillé d’acheter un miroir-psyché, pour me voir en pied, and where to place it in my morning journey. Good advice, especially as I checked my appearance in my large room mirror room which cut my silhouette in two (sometimes it's stupid !).

New combinations of colors and shapes.

A striking point is that bombers set of floral fabric with a striped top ! The bottom ? The black pants are accepted, but no matter what form, fluid, but right, « flare ». This will be my signature, print somewhat flashy and scarves, she wisely advised me.

"Shoulder Less, more roundness and therefore more smoothly for you Karin ", dixit Pascale.

 

The style, a set.

I also changed haircut, with a half more structured long cut, and putting the volume around my shoulders. The hair up making "A small head look". I still thought the hair attached and statements were a sign of seriousness ! Another belief ago 20 years old.

My new trends :

I followed the advice Fashion Lab for my photo shoot with Studio Waooimage (see photo of illustration of the article).

 

A successful detox Dressing : my closet smiles !

  • I find my lovely dressing. Practical and functional. It becomes central in the morning when I opened both doors !
  • I feel better because I begin to identify the elements of my 'signature'. I also know what parts I need to buy to complete my outfits.
  • I make peace with myself for this detox. I feel relieved, and guilty to part with some clothes. (The + : Pascale will give me the contact details of associations to help women find jobs. I know where my black jackets will go).
  • I have more confidence in me. And I am pleased to have this intelligently recycled dressing room which was full of good parts made. The lack of time and capacity to store made me unable to do so.

 

Pascale thank you for this moment as friendly as professional, and more useful than I thought. My vision of dressing is changed forever.
