  • thanks for the video! I’m coming to the end of a HUGE transformation, the two of you have raised some excellent points and reinforced my new attitude. It is 2 years since I left the corporate world but I still like the classic looks of button down shirts and blazers/suit jackets. To ‘casual up’ my business attire, I have discovered scarves and teamed with good quality jeans, khakis, or cottons. Boots play a large role too.

    There are a myriad number of ways to wear scarves whether the scarves are square, rectangle or triangle. I have scarves in silk, cashmere, wool, crinkle cotton, rayon, and polyester. If one needs inspiration, the internet provides many examples on the various ways to tie a scarf. I’ve discovered scarves can be worn year round in many climates.

    You are absolutely right about having someone else enjoy any items no longer providing a ‘green light’ in your current wardrobe. I have found many treasures in Thrifting and I’m sure others have found my donations to be treasures also. I’m looking forward to our next video–I love them all. ~Paula B

    • How exciting Paula that you’re having a transformation – and I love your attitude to thrifting – it’s all about sharing the love and the previously loved!

  • I have gone the other way. I got a new job recently and now need a more corporate look. I was previously a colour/big necklaces person but that’s not where I am at any more. I have redicovered a beautiful silver celtic brooch, and other smaller but quality items of jewellery and am wearing these with the more classic buttoned shirts and suits. Silk scarves and the more delicate jewellery seem to work better now, but I am fidning some elements of it hard, especially with the fitting challenges of being a pear shape. Having the colour/texture in my jacket seems to be working quite well also.

  • I’ve had a lightbulb moment! Thank you so much! I live in the UK where we don’t often have to think about dressing for intense heat, but we visit Australia once a year because we have family there. Climate wise, visiting Melbourne (where we spend most time) is OK, although I usually end up feeling old and frumpy – it’s such a young city and everyone wears black (or tiny shorts if they’re in St Kilda!) ! But a couple of years ago we spent a week in Perth in March, and I felt dreadful because it was so hot and my sister-in-law and I searched the city for a summer dress. This was difficult of course because technically we were moving into the Australian autumn (it was 40 degrees!) and all the stores had cleared out their summer stock, and all that was left were tatty sale rails (I hate the fact that nice displays go out of the window at sale time). But wearing the dress caused me really awful chafing problems, so your comment in this video about wearing trousers made my heart sing. – a solution I love because I’m not a skirts and dresses kind of woman any way. So now about some more guidance about how to look and feel cool in intense heat when you’re 50 plus and don’t look great in pastels because you’re a brunette with dark eyes and brows who still colours her hair, and doesn’t like exposing too much ageing flesh? I have issues with the menopause too, and I despair of feeling at ease and stylish when I’m hot, bothered and dripping.

    • I live in the Mid North Coast of New South Wales – we get hot weather here, too! With humidity…. I find I tend to wear lots of blues and crisp greens in the summer and save pinks and reds to the winter. I wear skirts, capris and shorts most of the summer, and dresses practically never! I find the texture and quality of the material makes a lot of difference to how I feel (and look) in the heat – steering clear of many of the polyesters (except expensive ones seem to be OK!!!!) and looking for the sort of cotton knits which don’t crease easily and don’t cling! I very rarely buy over the internet because I like to feel the fabric before I buy. (But I can recommend Elliot Kennedy clothing for good quality, well made classic garments in quality knits.) I find I can’t wear necklaces in the summer – I get prickly heat on the back of my neck, so I have found that wearing earrings is the answer to looking more stylish. Not sure how much this helps – good luck with your next visit!

  • A lot of wisdom. This shows that style is completely personal. (Might be good to edit the end of the clip and shorten it by a few seconds)
