Struggling to work out what clothes suit you? Tips on giving yourself a style makeover.

In the spare room wardrobe were things that I once loved, things that were quite big investment pieces at the time, things that were sentimental. Things that I was keeping hold of, in case my currently 9 year old daughter might love vintage, then one day perhaps when she’s 18 end up loving! Reasons that helped me part with them, I am so passionate now about these environmental causes and doing what we can. Actually, by keeping those clothes being unloved, under valued and unworn, they were not realising their true purpose. Me keeping them and not doing anything with them, is encouraging people to go out and buy them from you. So I just felt by releasing them and going to some one who would want it and use it and value it, that’s good for the planet.

A lesson in resilience

The best advice that I could offer is to try and keep the communication open, all the way through – even when it’s quite tricky, when they’re teenagers. Enabling them to be able to talk and be able to tell you anything, is really very important.

Survival Skills for Freelancers

“There are so many reasons why you need to say no – and I’m a very strong believer in ‘fit.’  Learning to say no and to trust your instinct, I believe are very closely linked…. I think this is a universal truth and I say this in the book, but the clients that quibble over cost…. Those clients end up being the absolute worse clients to work for.”
