You may be asking, ‘why is it I need a ‘Re-visit, Second Shop?

We all fall back into old habits, and quickly.  Our brains are ‘hardwired’ to do the same things over and over again.  Here is an example: 

  • you have been shopping
  • purchased a beautiful, black cardigan
  • come home only to slide open your drawer and put away your new fashion piece
  • right next to 10 other beautiful, black cardigans 


A benefit to  Connie Matthews The Stylish Director returning may highlight areas that could be enhanced and/or grow your wardrobe selection in areas you may not be aware of.  Your new cardigan may be gorgeous, but do you really need 10 black ones or would another colour have grown your wardrobe?

Being Stylish does not mean you need to purchase ‘new fashion pieces’ or ‘up-to-date trends’ every season to maintain your style.  Fashionable women never follow trends.  They keep classic pieces that always flatter and work, despite the season or latest craze – and, it’s why they always have something to wear. Hold on to your personal style and expand on your existing wardrobe. 

Seasons do change!  You may be moving from a winter wardrobe and need a smooth transition into summer selections.  Existing garments and accessories can be further developed into your new summer/winter clothing choices.  Sensible and simple!

Social and Corporate Events, Parties and Evenings Out, play an important part in our social calendar.  Finding the right fashion piece to compliment the event can sometimes prove challenging.  Ask yourself, ‘Can the new outfit you have in mind to purchase, be used again and soon?’  Or, will it sit at the back of your wardrobe until next year?  Would purchasing a 2-piece outfit be a better choice and extend your wardrobe?

Connie Matthews The Stylish Director will help develop and grow your own personal style, but it’s important to be true to yourself.  Don’t focus on labels.  Experiment with different patterns, textures, accessories and shoes.  Own your style, be proud of it and embrace fashion to express who you are and who you want to be.  Stay true to your taste and what you feel best in.  Trust your instincts, because something that makes you feel confident and beautiful never goes out of style.
