Unlike the rest of my posts, I thought I’d digress a little tonight and tell you about what I’m up to this weekend. I belong to the AICI (Association of Image Consultants International) and our Australian chapter is having it’s annual conference this weekend. It started today, and you may wonder what do a bunch of image consultants get up to when they get together?
Firstly, the all important question is ‘what to wear’ – going to an image consultants conference is high stress on the outfit gauge – you are supposed to be the expert in what to wear, and never make a mistake, so all the other consultants are checking you out with their critical eyes, so some planning is involved in outfit selection.
Unlike meeting a client, who I dress for to make them feel comfortable (I usually find out a bit about them before meeting, so if they’re an accountant I don’t wear my most creative clothes), and because I’m one of the lucky ones that black suits, and I’m not with a clients so don’t have to spend lots of time convincing them that there are other clothes they can wear that aren’t black, I wore black today, cos I have this funky outfit – a dress and jacket – that’s on the creative side, that I love.
So this is it – sorry I didn’t take a photo of it whilst I was still dressed, but I’m now in my ‘jammies and getting ready for bed. Fortunately I got lots of positive comments today… so tomorrow will be the next challenge. I will try and get someone to photograph me in the outfit so you can see.
Today we had sessions with Naomi Tickle – who taught us a little about the art of personology (face reading), where I discovered that my straight eyebrows make me more artistic and into asthetic appreciation, my fine hair indicates that I am sensitive to my surroundings and the people around me, my flat forehead indicates that I’m a sequential thinker, and that I have the Pioneer Ear which makes me want to venture into new arenas, and that I should be self employed (lucky for me I am).
Then we had a session with a Garry Hickey -Feng Shui Life Coach, who analysed my birth date and discovered I’m psychic (which explains why I feel sick in my stomach when I’m doing colour analysis and I’m putting unflattering colours on my client, but feel well and ‘home’ when I find the right colours), and will earn my living from being a teacher (well that’s what I can remember from what he said). Luckily I enjoy teaching about image, as that’s how I view what I do, as well as teaching others to be image consultants, I teach my clients about themselves. We also looked at each of the rooms in the house and what clutter was representative of in each room – quite enlightening, as well as looking at
Tomorrow we have sessions on marketing and then a trip shopping – which is pretty fun with a bunch of image consultants who all shop professionally for a living!
