Pinch and a punch. It’s not only the first of the month, it’s the first day of my favourite season and the launch of the spring 2015 Styling You Shop.
The shop concept is still new to Styling You. This is the second time we’ve opened up the pop-up online shop and I’m excited that you’re excited to see what we have on offer.
Like the first Styling You Shop, which opened in May for autumn-winter, the aim is to help take the stress out of what to wear for the season ahead.
We want you to feel confident in your personal style every day and hope that this collection – and our guide on how to wear the collection – is a big help to you.
It’s not just a case of throw a bunch of items into a shop and hope you can make some of them work for your wardrobe.
What we’ve done is carefully select pieces to form a capsule wardrobe of building blocks for spring and beyond.
Once again, I’ve worked with some of my favourite fashion designers and online stores to bring you a selection of clothes that can work for a multitude of occasions as well as for work and play.
A versatile garment is one that can be dressed up or dressed down and finding such garments has been the aim behind this season’s shop edit.
These are the 17 pieces you’ll find in store for just one month (or until sold out – stock is limited and in most cases when it’s gone, it’s gone). Garments range in size from size 6-16 or 18. One garment is free-size. We’ve also included a bag, two scarves and two necklaces for this edit. The price range is from $40-$285.
The intention has been to offer quality pieces that represent value for money – and pieces that will be in your wardrobe for many seasons to come.
For this season, we’ve also introduced a second everyday woman model into the mix. Joining me in offering styling inspiration is Peta (aka Trainee Mama). Peta is a part-time data analyst and mum to a gorgeous two-year-old boy. She’s a size 10 and 160cm, so offers an alternative to my size 14-16, 166cm. Please make her feel welcome.
