My colourful see-through Cambodian Adventure

My colourful see-through Cambodian Adventure

Hello everyone! I am glad to share with all of you my style tips for your ultimate Cambodian adventure so please read on and feel free to comment, share and ask questions!

Where would I go dressed like this?

I went and I would go again blending with the sunset and the beautiful hues of the Cambodian Buddhist Temples. I visited and I would visit again Seam Reap Artisans Angkor village to snoop around for timeless Cambodian handicrafts. Not only.

I would use see-through, joyful, comfortable clothes almost everywhere in Asia. In my understanding of a stylish globetrotter, in places like Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia and Bali, weather often equals three things ‘HOT, HUMID, GLUEY’. Black is not the best option, nor it is white when you have to walk on the red dusty roads of Siem Reap. Layering is absolutely forbidden unless one is attempting suffocation by natural causes. So what? I got it right with my sheer colourful tops and harem pants. Besides scientist say that bright clothes make us happy. Travelling colourful = double happiness.

Where would I not go dressed like this?

I would not go to a job interview. Too sheer, too vibrant. I would not go on a first date with my husband. Now that I know his thing about the simple elegance of a jeans and a T shirt in a solid colour. He had to learn to accept his vivid, bubbly wife. Not that he had a choice 😉

Who could wear this outfit? Fluid fabrics such as silks and chiffons are excellent for curvy women and for women with fuller figures. There you go, just be aware of the pattern as for fuller body shapes I would suggest abstract florals or paisleys, squiggles or spots instead of bold geometric patterns or lines which would not lie straight over your curves. 

The add-ons: when wearing so many shades, geometric patterns and flowers in an outfit, we really need to look in the mirror and remove the bold necklace, the hat with paillettes and our favorite LV bags. Have you not seen a little bit too often this sort of style crashing combos? Instead I do suggest wearing a playful, summery pair of earrings and a wide brim hat in a solid nuance. As for handbags and sandals, I went for the gold as I really did not want to add more colour to the outfit. Besides, everyone should own a pair of sandals and a handbag in their favorite metal. So next time you go shopping, make sure you tick these two from your must-haves-list.

A little thought about the colours: the WARMS are my absolute best picks and there are no warmer hues than corals and tangerines, daffodil yellows and ambers, rusty reds and mustards, or, oatmeals, chocolate browns and bronzes. One should feel the irresistible desire of dressing brightly just by hearing all these beautiful names. I know, I know, some of you are not sure what are their best colours. There is a service for this. It is called Full Colour Analysis.

How did I feel while wearing it? I felt so free and fluid! Like a butterfly!Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine. ~Jeffrey Glassberg


Any compliments: Most of the Cambodian people were trying to water-gun me. I took it as a compliment 

Little curiosity: I own a bunch of sheer harem pants and another one is on its way in a sssssssnakey pattern. When I do not want to go see-through, I simply …layer them. Yes, you heard me. I wear one pair of pants on the top of the other one.

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!
