Colour obsession: The Olive, the Burgundy and the Red Hot

Colour obsession: The Olive, the Burgundy and the Red Hot

Where would I go dressed like this? To a dinner or a cocktail party, at the theater, the ballet, or the opera. I would also reach for this outfit if I am on the look for a ‘festive attire’. Why not using it at a first date too? It would clearly show femininity and style personality without revealing too much of a cleavage, biceps or hips 😉 Isn’t it more playful and sexy to actually leave something to the imagination?

Where would I not go dressed like this? I would not wear this outfit to a job interview but I am still keen to consider it if I am working in a creative field such as design or media and invited to a business dinner.

Who could wear this outfit? When giving advice about who can wear a certain outfit, image consultants take into consideration many elements of the clothes and accessories involved in the look. We consider the pattern, the harmony of the colours, the neckline, the sleeves, the hemline… Although the floral prints never go out of style, they are not everyone’s best pattern. For instance a straight shift dress is one of the best styles for a woman with a rectangle body shape, but not the floral print…Good news on their way about the neckline, the hemline and the sleeves length. The crew neckline suits most women and a hemline right above the knee is quite universal too. Hm, sleeves length… I know about women rejecting so many otherwise great tops because of sleeve length. No woman on earth wants her sleeves to end at the most unflattering, wider point of her arm….Then why not considering a dress or a top with ¾ sleeves? They would hide the flop and show your beautiful bracelets and/or watch. The Style weights and measures ordinance is not easy. I totally get it. It gets confusing and you are probably wondering how does a ‘rectangular’ or an ‘invertedtriangular’ woman look ☺ Certainly the most simple and rewarding way to find out what is your body shape, style personality, best colours and ultimately what clothes are the most flattering on you is by booking a Style Makeover with a Personal Stylist, followed by a Wardrobe Editing session.

The add-ons: It could be risky to create a combo out of a floral dress and a patterned clutch, but if you get the right one, it’s instant gratification. “I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit” said Mickael Kors. My exclamation marks here are the burgundy booties, the polka dot clutch and a pair of chandelier earrings!!!

A little thought about the colours: Christmas is approaching and we will all start thinking in red, green, gold, but are red and green easy to put together in an outfit? You might find it challenging, but if olive green is amongst your best greens, you will not go wrong by pairing it with burgundy accessories. Earthy and rich, khaki is a chic and versatile colour that goes well with almost every other shade, including burgundy.

How did I feel while wearing it? All that red and burgundy in and out made me feel spicy 😉

Any compliments? Compliments do not always arrive in their physical, verbal form. They are in the eyes of your beloved ones or in the appreciative smiles of your friends. And, sometimes this is all we need to get uplifted.

Little curiosity: I got the rich burgundy suede booties at a sale a few months ago. This was the only pair of shoes I loved and the only one in my …size. Bonus: favourite colour. Can a girl get any luckier?

Having Pavleta help me on my styling is literally the BEST decision I ever made. Pavleta is such a fun and inspiring person to work with. She is thoughtful, warm, professional, talented, honesty and hard working. I got a very messy collection in my wardrobe and thought she would suggest me throw most of the items and buy something new. But she didn’t. Based on my current collection, Pavleta made all different type of styles. Chic, cool, cute or charming, I’ve tried everything I wanted. I never knew those old collections of mine could look so so so stylish. Most of all, Pavleta made me feel all the mix and match (that’s how she called them) were really tailor made for ME. Pavleta also taught me some skills about styling. Last Saturday I did my own mix and match based on what I learned form her. All my friends were like ‘WOW’ when they saw me.  👠Today is my second time working with Pavleta within a week. And I cannot wait seeing her again SOON in the next couple of days! Thank you Pavleta! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
Pav! Thank you so so much for today. It opened my eyes to a new world and I loved it!  I'm so happy with every single piece, I feel like a new lady 👏🏼👏🏼I've just retried a few things on and I'm so so pleased, and with clothes I have in my wardrobe - love love love!Thank you for your time, your fun, happy and on to it nature it was amazing! 100% reccomending and posting on my insta etc.Much love ❤❤❤Krys

A stylist that really listens to what you want, and is prompt to give options that all seem to be what you are looking! Seem to know what you are after before you do! Professional eye and great 5* service! Highly recommended!

I met the amazing and fun Pavleta a few weeks ago. I think of her as the “Clothes Genie”. Her warm,bubbly, knowledgable, inspirational and sparkly nature made the 2 sessions I had with her transforming! I am quite an organised person, but she helped me take my wardrobe to a whole new level. She gave me new ideas about combinations, organisation and a clear list of what I was missing. This means I am now far more focused on what I am looking for and less of a “on the whim” shopper! It has also meant, that packing has become 10000 times easier!! She has brought my wardrobe to life and I would recommend her transforming sessions to everyone who wants to combine fun with organisation!! Not an easy combination to get right!! Thank you so much for all you have done!!😊

It was wonderful to have Pavleta come to my place for a wardrobe edit. She helped me make the most of the clothes I had and gave me the confidence to go out and make the right choices when buying pieces to fill the gaps. I highly recommend her services

I had a successful wardrobe edit session with Pavleta and I am very satisfied with how much more understanding of myself I have now. It is like everything fell into place and I have a clear vision and mission now.
Firstly, I was pleasantly surprised how well prepared Pavleta arrived (a suitcase of helping materials and even books) and in what a structured and clear way we proceeded.
After the theoretical part of defining and discussing my style/colours/body shape and respective golden rules of the wardrobe, we efficiently proceeded with evaluating each piece in my (I have to say quite minimalistic) wardrobe. I had best combinations of existing pieces explained and finally we made a list of missing pieces that would make it complete. We even managed to do some online shopping upon my wish.
Generally, the session was a pleasant experience that exceeded my expectations: Pavleta very quickly obtained the understanding of my taste/preferences and I am happy to be following the provided fashion direction in the future since I have a feeling it is very fitting to me. I also recieved answers to all my particular questions (which shoes to that cocktail dress, what to wear to the favourite swimming suit and even how to have a fitting capsule wadrobe). Thank you, Pavleta!

" Thanks Pavleta! I really enjoyed today! I feel so enthusiastic about my new outfits...just from the things that are already in my wardrobe! Looking forward to going shopping to fill in all the gaps! It was such a great help. I can really see how certain items are going to go a long way in making my wardrobe a lot more interesting and fun to wear. Can't wait! "

Some of my friends had their colour analysis done and they all had one thing in common, each one of them started to dress more stylishly afterwards and to look just more feminine and vibrant. I decided to treat my daughter and myself with a special gift, a full colour analysis for both with Pavleta from Stylish Sisters. Pavleta's passion about style, colour and helping people was so rewarding and enlightening that we both absolutely loved her and her service. Highly recommending Pavleta to everyone. And, a little suggestion from me, if you wonder what to buy to your grown up daughter as a Birthday Gift, buy her a Colour Consultation. I did and it was so much fun, something we could together that we enjoyed.

I think my husband heard me saying way too many times that I had nothing to wear and of course he could not understand the point as my closet was packed with clothes of any sort, shape and colour, but there was a problem, this one he got it very clearly…so what he does next, as a practical and loving husband, is buying for me a styling package including colour, style and make up consultations, wardrobe editing and personal shopping. THE BEST EXPERIENCE GIFT EVER! Not only my entire closet, make up routine and shopping habits were REVOLUTIONISED by Pavleta, but my entire world! I see myself PRETTIER, I get loads of COMPLIMENTS, and even half of the CONFIDENCE I feel would be enough to conquer the world. In the few hours I spent with Pavleta, I learnt how to build a functional, neat and pretty closet and to become a smarter shopper. All this wrapped in friendly, fun atmosphere. I simply cannot recommend Pavleta more!
