Make-Up Your Presence

By on January 14, 2019

I have always said that individual consulting gives me great joy and am saying it again.

In this particular Individual Consulting, this lady is business owner and creates customized Notepads, Diaries, Name tags, Envelopes, Bags, and many more. She believes in creating memories and helps people in doing that.

When I first met her, was very intrigued by the belief and the thought that she is operating her business. But something was lacking – her CONFIDENCE in her abilities.

When you are business Owner, YOU become its Brand Ambassador and that is what I made her realize. Once the realization set in, projecting that confidence externally also becomes equally important and Makeup plays an integral part in it.

Though not 100% but Makeup brings a change in you. It helps in highlighting the best in you and makes you look confident. That is what my client understood and used the basic makeup products for the right look. Along with the right Makeup came right dressing as per Body shape, Age and height.

Small changes go a long way and not only I but her family and friends too saw the difference in the way she conducted herself in the recently concluded Exhibition.
One more name added in the list of “People who I could impact”

Is Fashion Harming You??

By on August 2, 2018

In my last #NoVA: The Personality Workshop for Teens, I got to interact with some amazing teenagers who were on the onset of stepping into a new phase of their life – college. Excited as they were, there was whole lot of nervousness which they agreed. College life meant independence, creating own identity but that also meant meeting new people and especially of opposite gender.

Usually as teenagers, we have all made the mistake of following fashion blindly which has gone all wrong and as I always say, image is created within the first few seconds of the interaction, so it is important to carry yourselves in the right manner.

This is the right time to understand your personal style and dress accordingly. Also, avoiding few things in styling can avoid long term damage to your body. This can be true for anyone – right from teenager to person in 60s.

  1. Understand your Body Shape and wear clothes accordingly.
  2. Do not wear too tight pants (Skinny jeans, narrow fit jeans) as this may cause poor blood circulation and dilated veins causing varicose veins, it also hampers digestion process causing constipation, gases, it also blocks natural air flow which cause vaginal infection and skin rashes, etc.
  3. Wearing heels shows confidence but if worn for prolonged time can lead to Joint Pain, Ankle Sprains, Back Pain, Osteoarthritis and even Nerve Damage.
  4. 20% of Ear piercing causes bacterial infection. (Do not have too many piercings)
  5. Flip-Flops are comfortable but they can cause scraps which can be easily infected, also leading to crack heels.
  6. Extra-large handbags (Tote Bags) on One Shoulder can cause Muscle Pain and spondylosis.

These are the few things which can be avoided or used in moderation.

Fashion will come and go but not every Fashion or Trend has to be followed. There is no wiseness in blindly following fashion and damaging your body.

You can infact create your own style by using fashion wisely. Choice is yours.

Cluster your Wardrobe…

By on July 13, 2018

In my previous article, I had written about the struggle women face when choosing clothes and clustering of clothes would be the best possible solution.

As per Dictionary, Cluster is to form or gather together. Similarly, in Image Consulting, Cluster is to form or gather together group of co-ordinated clothes and accessories which creates different looks and individuality to the person.

Clustering would help you

  • To break the wardrobe into smaller manageable groups.
  • Flexibility to buy and replace clothes on a piece basis.
  • Get maximum wear out of older clothes.
  • Saves shopping time.
  • Guarantees mix-and-match.
  • Reduce useless impulse purchases.
  • More Consistent Personal Style.
  • Simplifies your life.

Just imagine with a little planning and innovation, you are able to create 25 looks with just 5 clothing pieces and most importantly, your wardrobe can be manageable and with it your life.

Exciting, Isn’t it? Wait. No need to go shopping yet. You can first evaluate what you currently have in your wardrobe and how they can be used to the optimum. Basis that, you can create a shopping list.

Can Less be More? Try Clustering..

By on July 13, 2018

It was just the other day that my dear friend enlightened me that profit margins in apparel industry ranges from 6 – 13% as per industry analysts. It sure raised an eyebrow for me but was not totally shaken by this fact.

Being in Image consulting for 4 years now, have come across many clients who are at influential positions but still go through the struggle of not knowing what to wear for different occasion. They like everyone, go on shopping spree and purchase everything possible without being aware that the same garment can be worn multiple times with various looks.

Usually, Women, (i am referring specifically to women here) purchase one whole outfit and once worn in a week do not like to repeat it again that week or the subsequent week. So, they purchase different outfits and help the apparel industry to prosper. 🙂

It is not that I am against the apparel industry. In fact, I want to promote ‘Less is More’ and would encourage People to buy good & branded clothes which can be worn for longer duration and at the same time can be styled in various ways. Clothes can be clustered in various groups and be worn according to need of the day.

‘Clustering’ helps in avoiding last minute rush and everyday hassle of ‘don’t have anything to wear’. We can start the day with positive and relaxed way. It just needs a little bit of planning and foresight which anyone can master over a period of time.

I will be covering more on clustering in my next article.
