I am feeling nostalgic today. Is it because the sea in my hometown is getting cooler and the trees are crowned with gleaming yellow leaves? I am diving in the vortex of memories and the flow is transporting me back to when I was 16.

In the shady paths of our beautiful hometown park, I am walking along with Karina Fon Bodenblik, our energetic dog of Dalmatian breed. We are both trotting. Karina is waving her silky smooth ears, while I am waving my freshly curled locks.

Everything started years ago with Pongo and Perdita and my obsession for the book ‘101 Dalmatians. At that time our family owned already 2 cats and a dog, but none of them could convey the slightest aristocratic message. A Dalmatian could! With its dramatic black markings and elegant posture…it planted the seeds of a…fatal attraction in my young heart. Before we knew it, the dogs in the family were two- the tiny playful, hot-tempered puppy with aristocratic name conquered not only my heart, but also our home. Karina did not present herself in a Dalmatian print T shirt, but she definitely was inspirational for my teenage closet.

As a true synchronistic couple, we were ‘wearing’ matching outfits most of the time, a printed T shirt and a large metal choker necklace during our summer walks in the city, a red coat with ermine collar for a true royal touch during winters.

Fast forward some 24 years later…I am still attracted to black and white combos and…dogs. While my style personality in fact did not change with time and I absolutely love dramatic outfits, lifestyle, age and the breed of my dog are definitely different today.

Now I opt for a feminine, yet playful look when I wear a long see through black dress over black palazzo pants and a top in snake print, accentuated with a pair of vintage eye-catching earrings in black and white, a felt ascot hat in black and my preferred red lipstick.

Alternatively, I pick my favourite pleated chiffon maxi skirt and a strapless top in black, and upgrade this classic, sophisticated outfit with the help of some pearls and a bright red lipstick. Ideally I go bare feet :-), otherwise I choose a strappy flat sandal in black. The risky part if choosing to wear a pleated maxi skirt is understanding whether it is suitable or not for your body type. For a maxi skirt, the rule is to have long legs and that is not too difficult to determine :-). As for the pleats, a feminine and a bit old fashioned style, they are often a trend, but who can have the privilege to wear them? This is something you can discover during a Style Makeover, but let me give you a hint. If the pleats start from the waist and you have a little bump, which is otherwise sexy and appreciated, it will actually look bigger and most probably you will end up with a silhouette that you are not going to like. For instance I am that kind of girl and I prefer to choose a panelled pleated skirt.

The last look I decided to share with you today is a classic one with a twist. Adding a twist in a classic outfit makes me feel eternally stylish, but modern and fun at the same time. To begin with, what I am wearing is a crisp white zipper shirt and this gives me the possibility to wear it open with a funky tiger print top underneath. What you are seeing on the wrist is a Chanel pearl necklace worn as a bracelet. A beautiful scarf instantly upgrades an outfit and makes it more interesting, getting you a tiny bit closer to the absolute scarf-loving style icon Audrey Hepburn.

I hope you loved today’s time travel. Isn’t it fun to look back and wonder how-on-earth-you-could-go-out-dressed-like-that? What was your teenage closet like? I love chatting about style. If you love chatting about style too, remember to leave your comments below.

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!
