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.

FAQ at I on Image

You have questions, I have answers. Welcome to FAQ at I on Image!

1.Who is your typical client?

My typical client appreciates that your image is a powerful form of self-expression and has great impact on how you feel about yourself. They lead busy and versatile lives and want to dedicate time for their friends, families and personal development. They value self-care and are eager to invest in services that make their lives easier.

2. How do the online sessions work?

On popular demand I on Image offers now also online sessions via Skype, WhatsApp or regular call for a lower hourly rate. This option is ideal for those who prefer to have the consulting from the comfort of their own home or office. Online personal shopping has become increasingly popular due to the conveniency of the webshops being open 24/7. Please note that the items and the delivery cost need to be either pre-paid on I on Image’s account of paid by yourself upon checkout. I can arrange fitting sessions at your location and returns on your behalf but those will be charged at regular hourly rate as they involve travel, parking etc.

You can learn more about what is happening during each of I on Image’s services here.
IMAGE CONSULTING
3. Is there a minimum number of hours per appointment?

Yes. I on Image has a 2 hour booking minimum. The optimal duration of one appointment is somewhere between 2-4h. Anything more on one go starts to get quite intense and of course I don’t want to  exhaust you. We can always book a second session on another day. Rome was not built in a day and the same applies to your image. Your booked services will be invoiced after the session and they are calculated in half hour increments. If your session lasts only 1.5h you will still be invoiced for 2h. You can also pay by iZettle if you mention it in advance, make a prepayment on I on Image’s account or pay by cash. A copy of an invoice will always be provided for your records.

4. Do you make BEFORE and AFTER pictures?

Only if you want me to. Most of my clients are uncomfortable having their pictures on the internet, especially the before pictures, and I hated the idea of trying to convince them to do it. Many of my clients prefer anonymity and confidentiality and I want to fully respect that wish. Also everyone has their own unique style that reflects their one-of-a-kind personality. As a professional I understand how to make you shine and look like the best version of you without the need to copy something that is not speaking volumes on you.

PERSONAL SHOPPING

5. Is there a minimum budget for your clients?

No. I work with all budgets and all brands from Primark to Prada. It’s still wise to plan a bit ahead and give the topic some thought to avoid overspending and buyer’s remorse.

6. How do you determine which shops to take a client?

Having worked in fashion retail myself I am quite picky about where I take my clients. I always want to offer an inspiring and pleasant experience for you and to be able to do that I weigh the following aspects:

  • Your wishes: This is where it all starts!
  • Location: I consider distances between shops so that your time is not unnecessarily wasted on travel
  • Shop staff: This is self-explanatory. They just need to be good.
  • Shop selection: I follow my favorite shops actively so I know when it’s the best time to visit them.
  • Shop’s overall experience: I love shops that look nice and display their items well. Clean fitting rooms are a must and big plus if they serve drinks, offer tailoring services and home delivery.

PERSONAL SHOPPING

7. What if I hate shopping?

Majority of my clients find shopping a daunting task and some will exclusively shop online with me for this very reason. Some of my clients have told me that after shopping with me they actually enjoyed shopping because they enjoyed the end results so much. However some will always hate shopping and I fully accept it as long as you agree to try the things on.

8. But what if I love shopping?

I just love shopping with clients who enjoy it as much as I do! Some of my clients who love shopping don’t always know how to pick the best pieces for themselves so hiring me enhances their shopping experience and overall look. Some of my clients just love to have someone shop with them and sometimes they are shopping for an event or a job so important that having a professional with them makes them feel more secure and satisfied about their choices.
