My Summer Essentials

Summer essentials are the items that make your summer. Think sunglasses, maxi dress, that turquoise necklace that takes you right back to Amalfi coast… Without them summer just wouldn’t be the same. Mine tend to change a bit every year but in principle these are the items that I always pack with me and I couldn’t imagine a summer without them.

This is my list:

1. Printed maxi-dress and a pretty handbag


2. White broderie anglaise


3. Simple navy sundress that goes with literally everything

4. Large sunhat


5. Embellished shoes with a fun pedicure

 


6. Sunglasses with an attitude

Dress your shape: HOURGLASS

EPISODE 4/4: Heroic hourglass

Dressing for your shape can be tricky and daunting. All the advice out there seems so restricting and judgemental. Some advice concentrates mainly on hiding flaws which I find so depressing and unnecessary. Yes, I know I am not perfect but must we talk about it all the time? I just want to be me. And I just want you to be you. Here at I on Image we are having none of that negativity. We celebrate, respect and appreciate each body regardless of it’s shape and allow everyone to set their own limits and standards -or give them up altogether. It’s up to you! But to give you some of the tried and tested style advice that I am hoarding in my fashionably ruffled sleeve, here comes I on Image’s 4-episode BODY SHAPE GUIDE for hourglass body shape.

Remember that these are just very rough guidelines and majority of people fall in multiple categories. You are also allowed to rebel and wear what ever you want!

To discover your own unique beautiful body shape with a professional I recommend booking I on Image’s IMAGE CONSULTING session. Find out what shape you are, learn to dress your shape and how to shop your shape. With my gentle guidance you will learn to appreciate what is amazing about you and how you can flaunt it -or keep it just for yourself. It’s up to you because it’s your body after all. You can book your IMAGE CONSULTING session here. This was the last episode, hope you enjoyed reading along!

I believe that every body is beautiful!

3 Reasons to Hire Me

It’s time to claim the ownership of your image but what really is the added value of hiring an image consultant? Here I have listed 3 very good reasons to hire me.

Photo credits: Blake Bronstad on Stocksnap.io

1. set yourself apart

Style is a powerful form of self-expression. When there is so much information and materia available it’s easy to loose insight. Sometimes you don’t even know where to begin and that’s when I come to your rescue. I map with your the areas you need the most help with and can give you unbiased advice on your personal image. My job is to make you shine and to make your life easier. I enjoy the most to see the glow of confidence and excitement on my client’s face when they try on an outfit or an item of clothing that speaks volumes on them. It belongs to their story and they know it. Others certainly will notice it!

2. Save Money

I will help you to get rid of the things things in your wardrobe that you no longer need and I will help you rediscover items that you had forgotten about or always found difficult to combine. I know which items are missing from your wardrobe and which items would complete your look. With me you will always shop with an intention. You will never return home from your shopping trip with the 5th black cardigan or a fashionable item that looks dated in a month’s time ever again. I am not a sales person and so I don’t take any kickbacks from shops from your purchases. If I am participating an affiliate program through my website it’s always clearly marked so you can make an educated choice. I shop with all budgets and all brands from Primark to Prada. As a bonus I also know when the sales start and sometimes I can even predict which items will end up in sales so you can snatch them for half the price when the time is right.

3. Save Time

Get dressed in a flash? Shop like a pro? Yes please. I have made a career of knowing how to build looks that complement your best features. I always find the hidden gems in the fashion jungle. I know which shops have the nicest staff and tidiest fitting rooms. I have a nose for when the new stock is coming in and where you could still find sold out items. I plan our shopping trip so that we spend minimum time from moving from shop to another. I always keep in mind your budget, your body shape, your colours and your lifestyle. I advice how to wear your outfits and how to take care of them so you can cherish them for years. I also know the web shops inside out so shopping online will me will be a breeze over a cup of coffee.

Shop your closet

Is your wardrobe bursting from it’s seams but still you have nothing to wear? 80% of voters on I on Image’s Facebook poll answered YES so I thought it was time to share some tricks of the trade on how to shop your own closet.

Here at I on Image I use a simple 3-step method that you can easily copy into your own routine:

PLAN – PREPARE – STORE

For a more in-depth approach I recommend booking I on Image’s Wardrobe Analysis session where tailored style advice, handy shopping list and fresh suggestions on how to get the most out of your clothes is provided. I come to your house and build strong looks from the items you already have. I take a critical look at each piece. Some may have to go, some need to be replaced. I hang your complete outfits from Monday to Friday in your closet for fast and easy mornings. We take photos of each outfit and you can use them as your visual style journal. Getting a sudden invitation to a big meeting, an interview or a fun dinner after work will never be a fashion dilemma for you again. You will always know you what to wear and you can fully concentrate on what matters the most to you. You can book your Wardrobe Analysis session here.

Girl, You’re a Super Star

Spring is in the air! It’s time to update your wardrobe to the new season and lighten up in general. Stylist Jenni Ryynänen of I on Image is adding a splash of optimistic yellow in your look and combining it with easy-going denim for an effortless cool girl-next-door-look. Forget about complicated pieces and high-maintenance. Our March fashion edit is dedicated to fabulous, fun and fierce women who do things their way, are kind and compassionate, yet brave and righteous. They go a mile for a friend in need but respect their boundaries and know when to walk away. They are forever curious, passionate and inspiring. May we be them, may we raise them!

Monique Magazine March 2018 Edition

 

  1. Victoria by Victoria Beckham wool sweater. Combine with classic blue denim and a comfy platform sneaker or spice up your classic tailoring with this springy shade. It may look sunny out there but, I tell you, it’s actually still freezing cold so a warm sweater will be a staple for at least two more months, if not longer.
  2. Dolce & Gabbana round golden sunglasses with colourful crystals. I am always a fan of extravaganza and over-the-top maximalism. With these you can keep the rest of the outfit simple or just forget about all the rules and go full-on bling. Just because you can.
  3. Stella McCartney denim jacket with distressed stars. A good denim jacket is an investment with a high return. It goes with pretty much everything and tends to age very well. I bought my previous one in Berlin in year 2000 and only now it’s starting to fall apart. Talking about price per wear ratio!
  4. See by Chloé denim skirt with scalloped and frayed hemline. A denim skirt is the cool girl’s way to transition from trousers to skirts. The A-line makes it easy to wear for most body shapes and I love the retro style front buttoning. Pair with a chunky platform or a sleek sneaker.
  5. See by Chloé ruffled high-neck silk dress. Nothing quite says spring than a boho-chic tiered dress in a breezy fabric and a sunny colour. Toughen up the romantic look with a denim jacket and a shoe that you can take the world in. Add sunnies and an vintage inspired crossbody bag.
  6. Baum und Pferdgarten joggers with side stripes and buttons. A chic jogger sounded impossible on a paper a few years ago but it proved to be a hot item that isn’t going to leave the scene anytime soon. As stated in my January edit (https://moniquemagazine.com/clean-slate/), athleisure will remain a global megatrend in 2018 and for a good reason. There are not many items that can accommodate looking streamlined yet relaxed in one look. Combine yours with a denim jacket and a pair of sneakers. Heels give an amazing contrast to a sporty look.
  7. Stella McCartney Elyse denim platform brogues. For every person who has ever suspected if eco-friendly or vegan shoes can really be cool I have presented exhibit A: every shoe Stella McCartney has ever designed. Loving the raw denim combined with cork and the cut-outs, not to mention the playful polka dots. Wear with mini, midi or cropped.
  8. See by Chloé Hana small crossbody bag in a spicy yellow hue. A true classic for it’s bohemian details and laid-back saddle shape.
  9. Kenzo Move sneaker. Kenzo’s signature tiger roars in these vintage style sneakers. Combine with anything that would otherwise look too conventional or trying too hard. These shoes will take you to places!

Be My Valentine

Our February fashion story is dedicated to love. There is of course Valentine’s Day on 14th February but in these modern days you are allowed to have your own interpretation of what love really means to you. Whether your love is the traditional “you&me forever”-scenario, or you are embracing your secret romance with a lovely lover from Loverville, or your love is one big universal love, or you are just celebrating love -and lust- for life in general, this is the perfect time to open your heart for a little bit more of it. Stylist Jenni Ryynänen of I on Image has hand-picked us a romantic selection from the latest collections in feminine dusty pink hues, rose gold accents and pearls. These items echo nostalgia and beautiful things from the past, but still have a sophisticated and strong modern feel to them. Here’s to love, the most powerful force in the world!

1. Acne Toronto wool scarf with logo. Wrap yourself warm under this large blanket-like scarf that will keep you warm even if your lover is far away.
2. Skagen Agnethe rose gold coloured stainless steel pearl earrings. Beautiful scandi-minimalism for making a statement with your jewelry every day.
3. Marlies Dekkers Viva La Vida corset (3.1) with matching Brazilian briefs (3.2. picture is from the back). This Dutch designer makes underwear for strong grown-up women and her Frida Kahlo inspired collection is no exception. It brings the life and work of artist Frida Kahlo into the spotlight and celebrates her creativity and remarkable stamina.
4. Serge Lutens Féminité du Bois Eau de Parfum 50ml. This earthy cedar wood scent expresses the masculine side of femininity and has been described as revolutionary.
5. Sandro pink lace dress with white accents. I love the playful vintage feel of this dress. Wear with a classic block heel for a romantic look or add a modern twist with a sleek trainer.
6. Swarovski Iconic Swan Ring. This open ring has a stunning crystal encrusted black swan and a simple pearl on the other end.
7. Chloé Marcie mini crossbody bag in powdery pink leather. Great investment piece with a flowy boho touch that is Chloé’s signature style.
8. Skagen Agnethe rose gold coloured stainless steel bracelet with pearl. Match with the earrings mentioned above or wear on it’s own.
9. Salvatore Ferragamo Luca pump with low flower heel and sophisticated round toe. Wear with mini dresses that would look too much with a stiletto or soften up your boyish denim.
