COLOUR OBSESSION: THE PATTERNED SILK BLAZER! A CHALLENGE OR A STAPLE?

COLOUR OBSESSION: THE PATTERNED SILK BLAZER! A CHALLENGE OR A STAPLE?

Where would I go dressed like this?
At a style event paired with a fancy skirt and some bold jewels. At a casual lunch meeting matched with a cigarette pant in a solid colour. Out celebrating a wedding anniversary in a fancy place, why not with a little dress underneath. Browsing a shopping bazaar by dressing down the glossy outerwear with a pair of jeans and sneakers. The long desired silk blazer became unexpectedly one of my wardrobe staples.

Where would I not go dressed like this?
A silk blazer does not like extremes such as formal business meetings or activities with children. Business functions require more conservative wardrobe choices and a patterned silk blazer is anything but conservative. Going somewhere, actually anywhere with young kids normally involves carrying extra handbags, shopping bags, toys, snacks, pizza and ice cream gobbling, ice skating, dealing with fighting siblings, mopping up tears. Things can escalate and get messy in a blink of an eye and a mother needs proper armor, not a delicate blazer with slit sleeves.

Who could wear it?
If your top half appears to be smaller than the bottom you will want to bring the attention to the upper part of your body. Trust me! You will bring A LOT OF ATTENTION there with a detailed, patterned, vibrant jacket like this. Just make sure that it ends either above or below the widest point of your hips and bottom. Is it even necessary to mention that a woman with hourglass body shape would look great in it? If your bottom half seems smaller than your top half, you can still wear a patterned silk blazer, perhaps with a revered collar and by choosing your best design amongst stripes, checks, geometrics, squiggles and spots. A Style Consultation would give you all the knowledge you need for a flattering, functional wardrobe and a smarter shopping attitude.

The add-ons: This blazer is tremendously dramatic on its own, but somehow it looks stunning with bold golden jewels. The gorgeous slit sleeves are such a show off and I usually wear the blazer with a Cavalli bangle and an oversized snake ring; a golden clutch adds glamour too. Complete your sexy look with a pair of killer heels or dress it a bit down with your best-loved sneakers.

A little thought about the colours:
Imagine I never showed you the pictures of the silk blazer. Now close your eyes and keep reading ☺. Can’t do that? Me neither, but I can visualize snorkeling in the shallow coral reefs of the Caribbean atolls escorted by angel, butterfly and surgeon fishes. This is how I feel when I put on my silk blazer. Bonus: I never ever came face to face with a shark or with a lionfish. Want to learn how to navigate in your best colours with confidence? A Full Colour Analysis is the right thing for you.

How did I feel while wearing it? Whenever I want to feel glamorous, striking, unusual, I reach for my silk jacket. Instant gratification!

Any compliments? I remember visiting a shopping event in Hong Kong and being stopped by every other woman. They all asked the same questions:” Is this a Cavalli blazer?” and “Where did you get it from?”

Little curiosity: I got the fabric years ago during a visit in Shenzhen without knowing what I would use it for. I loved the colours, the pattern, the lustrous texture. I admit it! I am patient! A dreamer too! I love the feeling of achieving something after I waited and dreamed about it for quite a while. The design? My tasteful mama found it while browsing some fashion magazines.

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

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!
