Last week I was absolutely delighted and so privileged to be asked to host ‘Dress to Success Glasgow’ in the most stunning venue; The Hummingbird Penthouse.

What an audience it was! Receptive, engaging and inquisitive, and let’s not forget – ambitious. This was a room full of individuals who realised the potential and the power of first impressions and who wanted to learn more.

I covered [Your Base Collection] to highlight the absolute essentials for your corporate wardrobe, which you can see in one of my most earliest blog posts.

#AllergictoAverage

I then went on to discuss [Top to Toe for Interview] which covered attention to detail in preparing for your interview.

I took the audience through considerations – starting with style of hair, right down to the tidiness of your handbag and what pens you take. Using personal opinion and research conducted, I gave the audience an insight into employer perception; a critical consideration with most being at an early stage of their careers; soon to be on the blog;
Watch This Space.

Following that, I took my wonderful audience through the [why]. The core of everything I do with #AllergictoAverage is about empowerment. Empowering women in the corporate world to Stand Up and Stand Tall; by exploring how we can Be At Our Best; More of Time, through fashion and lifestyle. I want to educate and support them to make better choices with their clothing in the corporate world and leave them feeling like they can take on the world.

Recently I watched a Ted Talk [Start with Why] and it was one of the most thought provoking Ted Talks I have watched. Since watching it is crucial for me to always consider your WHY and I wanted to communicate that to my audience.

I won’t spoil it for you, watch it here:

Finally, I took them through some examples of my favourite power dressers. A modernisation of the traditional 80s fashion style that allowed woman to establish authority in typically male-dominated fields – but we’ll keep that for another time.

[What Did I Wear?] 

I went with a neutralised palette for the evening, wearing 2 pieces from [Your Base Collection] with some camel tones thrown in too.

A special night calls for some special shoes.

So Kate Nude Patent with signature red sole.

On my bottom half, I wore one of my favourite wardrobe items
[both personal and corporate wardrobe]:
The Topshop Joni High Waisted Jean in Black.

Why? Because they fit my body well, they are stylish, they are versatile.  But most of all they make me feel good;
they make me feel confident and I stand tall.

As you can see in the above picture I’m wearing a camel coloured waist coat, teamed with a tailored white shirt and Burberry neckerchief for an eye-catching look.

Obviously, I wore my signature beehive and ponytail, teamed with natural makeup and a Velvet Teddy lip.

A fantastic event, with great feedback from my audience, giving me the confidence to keep doing what I’m doing. Thank you to any one that attended – I truly believe this won’t be the last.

Nicole.

    1. Hi Linda! Nice to hear from you. I would also kind of class myself as a beginner! My top tips would just be to write about something you are passionate about and spread the word of your blog as much as possible! I’m still working on doing that but keep at it and it will build and build every month! Good Luck. Nicole.
