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.

Going green

This autumn I find myself drawn to all things that are green. I associate the colour green strongly with nature: for me it’s the colour of tranquility, freshness, growth and fertility. Green makes me think of safety and it’s also commonly associated with money. It’s a delightfully fresh looking colour that to my excitement makes a return in fashion every few years.

With green it’s important to choose the right shade for your skin tone to avoid looking sick -or envious- but there is a shade for everyone. My personal favorites are bottle green and olive green. I also love fresh grass green and luxurious shades of emerald and jade. Green looks great with our trusted neutrals black and denim, and I am also giving you the green light to wear it with your winter whites (see what I did there).

I have created you these five green looks to wear this season in the office. Hope you like them as much as I do. Let’s celebrate the positive power of green! I have also pinned them all on my Pinterest board: https://nl.pinterest.com/IonImage/i-on-image-working-wardrobe/styled-by-i-on-image-aw2016/so go ahead and pin them on your own style board for your inspiration.

Did you like these looks? As mentioned earlier, each one of them can be ordered through StyleFruits.nl by clicking each photo. If you don’t feel like shopping on your own, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me. Along my image consulting services I offer personal shopping service -live and online. Shopping with an expert saves you time and money, also it saves you from having a headache trawling around the shops alone. You can book your personal shopping session here on my webpage or you can send me an email to reserve your spot in style!

 

Enjoy the rest of the week!

There is something magical about autumn: The crisp morning air, darker nights, colourful foliage… and fashion. It’s my favorite time of the year and I always feel myself coming back to life after the long lazy summer days. I love dressing myself darker shades because they look infinitely more chic than the juicy summer tones that often make people look like they are trying too hard or are simply living in a coconut scented fantasy. Wrap me up in cool grey, stylish navy, earthy brown, buttery beige, powdery muted pastels and edgy black instead.

I am wild about combining different textures for interesting looks, for example crisp cotton with tweed or silk with leather, that are both my signature styles. There is also something very comforting about being more covered and this hasn’t got so much to do with age. I already fell for fall fashion when I was a teenager. Every September I am most delighted about the opportunity to start wearing my safety blanket -black opaque tights- again after months of running around with my lily white varicose-vein-ridden legs on display.

My unconditional love for autumn reached it’s current height when I worked in retail where autumn was a very important season. People tend to invest more in their autumn wardrobes because it’s mostly work wear and has a longer life span than summer fashion has. And when they are going to invest more they want to be sure that they are buying the right things. This was, and still is, a wonderful challenge for me and even now as my own boss when buying for summer I am already thinking how the item could translate into fall or even spring. This way my clients get more for their money and that is a wonderful thing!

In the coming weeks I on Image will be posting under theme: Back to Work. There will be new looks for you to shop or pin, great advice to boost your image and a top secret discount code (spoiler alert: it will make you the most stylish person in the office). Stay tuned and make sure to follow my daily updates on I on Image’s Facebook page. Book your image consulting session already now as I will be very busy in September and October. You can either fill in the form at the bottom of this page or email me at ionimage@gmail.com.

This will be an amazing autumn, I can feel it!

Summer special 2016: I on Image -En Vacance

Here comes I on Image holiday special for summer 2016! I know you have earned your stylish break so let’s make it a breeze for you. I have created a bunch of summer styles for you to steal.
I love these shades of coral and turquoise that take me immediately far far away on a pristine beach where the days are long and lazy. A wide brimmed sunhat and stylish sunglasses are an absolute must. I get headaches so easily in the sun, and who has time for that on a holiday. Flat sandals give your toes a break and matching accessories finish your look. I also always love to have a new summer scent that sets the mood for the whole season. I got mine already in May!


I hope you love these outfits as much as I do. You can find them all -AND MORE- on my Pinterest board: https://nl.pinterest.com/IonImage/i-on-image-en-vacance/styled-by-i-on-image-summer-2016/ Go ahead and pin them on your own style board! Then it’s time to sit back and just look good. Okay reading a nice book or having a cocktail with a colourful umbrella are pretty good alternatives too!

Packing is definitely my least favorite part of the holiday but with the help of professional organizers Melissa Curran Kalker of Sorted by Melissa and Susanne Gaspar of The Space Woman it feels like a walk in the park http://ionimage.nl/i-on-image-asks-the-experts-packing-for-holiday/


Activate your out office message and don’t skimp on sunscreen.
Have a lovely summer time!

I on Image is in love with Inna-Store dresses

On one of those rainy January days I drove to Rotterdam to see Inna Tetiyevska of Inna-Store to learn more about her beautiful feminine dresses. My day was immediately brightened up by listening to the Ukrainian designer’s vision on the modern working woman’s business wear. Inna has been drawing and sketching her whole life but she ended up studying linguistics. She moved to the Netherlands with her husband and had a child. Lucky for us dress-loving ladies, her true calling was too strong to resist and so she went and launched her first collection carrying her own name in spring 2014.

All Inna fabrics come from The Netherlands and since recently they are also sewn in a small atelier in Rotterdam. I am a huge fan of local produce and in my opinion clothes shouldn’t be an exception. We have been buying clothes from cheap sweat shops for too long and I see a shift in my clients’ and fans’ mindset. For Inna it’s all about comfort and quality. She loves to dress up a modern business woman in her effortless chic dresses.

“If you feel nice inside, you’ll look good on the outside” -Inna’s dress philosophy

Of course, I had to try them on. The dresses come in 7 flattering colours (black, beige, grey, red, blue, purple and lilac) and they are tailored to fit 3 different body shapes: Rectangle, pear and hourglass. The sizes were true: I am a size 38 pear and 38 pear was perfect on me. The fabric is very comfortable, low maintenance polyester-viscose-spandex blend that you can wash yourself and it requires minimal ironing. As a mother of two energetic boys I can’t possibly bear the thought of taking items to dry-cleaners all the time. Also it was very refreshing to try on a designer dress that doesn’t cost an arm and leg!

Inna-dresses from left to right: Emmy in black, Dora in blue and Anna in purple

For Inna her dresses are in continuous progress. She is dreaming of adding sleeves (we both love the ultra-flattering 3/4 sleeve length) to them, matching jackets, wider size range, maybe even expanding the collection with a few tasteful separates… I started immediately begging for the perfect wrap blouse, I am hopeless like that!

I on Image at work -Creating ageless and timeless looks

This great Guardian article by Alyson Walsh of inspirational style blog That’s not my age from last week made good fashion resolutions for grownups.

“…beyond a certain age, style becomes personal. The urge to buy into every trend subsides and it’s all about finding an individual look; one that’s timeless and ageless and works for you.”

http://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2016/jan/04/silk-shirts-and-silver-shoes-2016-style-resolutions-for-grownups?CMP=twt_gu

These are basically the same style dilemmas my clients battle with. I do my very best every day to help my clients find their own style that tells their story. I often get asked how. This is how I roll at I on Image.

First I dive inside your wardrobe. I build strong looks from the items you already have. I take a critical look at each piece. Some may have to go, some will be replaced. I hang your complete outfits from Monday to Friday in your closet for fast and easy mornings. Often there are more than 5 outfits. And even more often the clients get inspired and creative along the process! Every outfit is documented and we take photos. Getting a sudden invitation will never be a fashion dilemma for you again. Your personal style journal will always have an answer for you.

Then we make a shopping list to fill in the gaps in your style narrative. I take in consideration your existing wardrobe, body shape, colours, budget and other special wishes. Many clients are surprised how short the list can be. My last client really needed just a perfect black jacket and a couple of shirts to replace the old ones.

Finally we hit the shops. Some clients like to shop on their own when they know what they are looking for. I am happy to shop with those who prefer gentle guidance. I know brands, materials, current trends and styles that will flatter you forever. Some customers feel confident enough to shop alone after a few rounds, some love the service so much that they don’t want to shop alone ever again.

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.

“As Iris Apfel says, in life and in fashion: “It’s good to maintain a sense of wonder.”

I on Image wears La Dress

When two gorgeous people point me to four gorgeous dresses, and they are all from the very same brand, it is time for a curious mind like me to investigate a little bit further…
I had the pleasure to visit La Dress showroom in Amsterdam last week. They have created a beautiful space full of glamorous Christmas spirit (It was hard for me to stay away from the macarons and Ferrero Rochers!) -and rails and rails of stunning, 100% wearable, I on Image-proof dresses. I was welcomed by lovely La Dress representative, Jint van Andel, who told me about the philosophy of the brand, materials, cuts, colours and much more.

 

To my delight all La Dress dresses are made in the EU, namely The Netherlands, Romania and Poland, using only the highest quality Italian fabrics. I like very much the aspect that you can wash your own dress and just hang it up and, voilà, you are ready to go. The jersey dresses don’t even require ironing so they are ideal for my globe trotting business clients who want to travel in style without ever having to sacrifice the comfort. Simone van Trojen, the creative mind behind the brand, wears every sample herself to ensure the quality, comfort and that luxurious feel that is the brand’s signature element.

 

It was difficult to choose my favorites, because there were simply too many, but I managed to narrow it down to top 5.



ROSA – This wrap-top number is made of comfortable jersey lycra fabric that flatters your figure. It has long sleeves and an understated sexy under-the-knee length. It comes in 4 stylish colours: anthracite, black, navy and cobalt.

CAROLINE -It is hardly a surprise that this beauty is a best seller. 3/4 sleeves are an elegant way to show off a bit of skin. It is made of washable and wearable light jersey. The dress has a flattering boat neck and a demure just-above-the-knee length. It comes in 11 different colours. There is a shorter version available, Carla, that comes is whopping 18 different colours!
ANDIE -This curve hugging 3/4 sleeve dress is made of luxurious heavy jersey. It has a sexy zipper that goes down all the way in the back. Speaking of memorable exits! It comes in two forever classic colours: navy and grey.

 

ALVA -This ultra-flattering dress is made of elegantly falling crêpe fabric. It is cinched in at the waist and flares at the hips. I love the gathered fabric around the bust and the demure under-the-knee-length. It comes in 3 stylish statement colours: red, black and blue purple.

PENELOPE – This gorgeous wrap dress is made of beautiful jersey lycra. It has an extended panel of material for ultimate comfort and cover . It has my favorite 3/4 sleeves and a collar that looks fabulous when popped up instead of worn down as in the picture. It comes in 5 wearable colours: black, ink (a great option for navy)

I am looking forward to bringing my dress-loving personal shopping clients to the ultimate La Dress experience at their atmospheric showroom in Amsterdam. Book this special La Dress personal shopping session now, for yourself or with a group of friends, by emailing ionimage@gmail.com or book an appointment by leaving your details here.

 

Wishing you a stylish rest of the week!

‘Tis the season to be jolly!

The festive season is here again, and despite it being mainly fun and games, the question is already out there:

What on earth are we going to wear?

To make your life easier and save your valuable time I have created a selection of fabulous party looks for you to steal! I was inspired by textures: lace, embellishments, sequins, embroidery… all beautiful things that have a little vintage feel about them. And this December I simply can’t resist a little fake fur jacket! I have pinned all these Christmas party looks -and more- on my Pinterest board “I on Image loves to party” so you can pin them on your own style board and share with your friends.

So go ahead and pour yourself a warm glass of red (a few wine suggestions on my earlier blog More wine? I on Image tastes wines with Sanna Pöyry) sit back and enjoy this virtual shopping tour. ‘Tis the season to spend time with your family and friends, not stressing out in shops! If you prefer to shop with a professional personal shopper, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me. Along my image consulting services I offer personal shopping service -live and online.

 
Enjoy the most wonderful time of the year in style!
