Colour obsession – Turquoise..whatever..whenever

Colour obsession – Turquoise..whatever..whenever

Where would I go wearing turquoise?

Turquoise is one of my favourite colours. It is a certainty! I can tell by the magnetism between me and anything in this hue: a crossbody bag, a bold necklace, an oversized cocktail ring, a pair of sunglasses, a dress, a cardigan, a felt fedora, a bikini, a…nail polish. Some days the attraction is so intense that the desire of wearing something turquoise transforms in a NEED. So I pair the necklace and the handbag with a black jumpsuit if I’ve got to run a few errands, visit the hairdresser or ride the ferry. Or, I transform into a turquoise queen by pairing nail polish, a cocktail ring, a dress and a …’throne’ in the same tone and Voilà! All set for a date with a bunch of other queens 🙂

 

Where would I not go wearing turquoise? I would not visit ancient Mexico as it is said that turquoise was reserved for the gods and the mere mortals should not wear it. I have zero curiosity finding out what was the punishment for wearing turquoise in ancient Mexico… 

Who could wear turquoise? This is one of the very few colours that looks great on EVERYONE.

What colours to wear with turquoise? A versatile neutral and a great accent, turquoise works beautifully with almost any other color. Pair it with white, black, beige, grey, navy, chocolate brown or camel to achieve a balanced, polished look. Go a little crazy by matching it with burgundy, mustard or chartreuse. Opt for monochromatic, by wearing blue-greens garments and accessories for a sophisticated, feminine effect.

A little thought about the colour: Turquoise, as a blend of blue and green, has some of the same cool and calming qualities. At a psychological level turquoise means open communication and clarity of thought. To me, it screams ‘ I am enjoying life!’ as my perception of this colour is as one of the friendliest and happiest in the colour spectrum. This magnificent hue is associated with an amount of positive meanings: energizing, feminine, calming, sophisticated, revitalizing, wisdom, serenity, creativity, emotional balance, good luck, spiritual grounding, friendship, love, joy, tranquility, patience, intuition, and loyalty, integrity. I love, I want, I need them all! It’s easy after all, just wear your turquoise…whatever…whenever!

 

How do I feel while wearing turquoise? Not only this colour uplifts my mood, but it also makes me feel eternally feminine and attractive.

Any compliments? One of my best girlfriends: “…I absolutely love the dress! Pairing it with nail polish and a cocktail ring…you are too much!” Me: “ And then I found a matching ‘throne’ and was about to carry it around, but my girlfriends said I was exaggerating. I think they were just jealous :)

 

 

Little curiosity: I found the beautiful felt fedora you are seeing in one of the pictures during a styling event in a Hong Kong boutique. I absolutely loved it and everyone around loved the look, but I could not buy it. I am on a six-months-shopping-detox. If it is meant to be mine, I am sure the pretty turquoise fedora will wait until the end of…November . Perhaps I will even find it at a discounted price…

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! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

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!
