The perfect “Nude” Nail polish shade

Perfect manucured nails are very important - you will be suprised how many people notice chipped and dirty nails.

Perfect manicured nails are very important – you will be surprised how many people notice chipped and dirty nails.

 

I was on the hunt to find the perfect nude nail polish this season !  Although we are seeing lots of plums and red this Winter 16 a nude is always a favourite of mine.

 

Well I was lucky enough to be given around 10 different brands for me to try!

THE WINNER IS ………

This ulta3  (untold secret) painted on nicely, the wider brush made it easier to get to the edges. After 2 /3 coats along with the TOP COAT  my mini manicure was completed.

      This nude was not too pink and not too beige.  My pick this week for  “The Perfect Nude Polish”

Classic Looks for Pre Xmas Functions

leader

 

I was lucky enough to be featured in our local Leader Newspaper. I was asked to collect 4 seperate looks,  for different  occasions.

  • Look 1 – Was a BBQ, denim, chambray dress, along with tan wedges, loved this look because it was relaxed and not over done. Flopy hat is always a must. ALl these items were from Westfield Knox Country Road Store.
  • Look 2 – Family Function – Black & White always a favourite look of mine, simple, yet classic and stylish. Loved the white vest jacket. These items were all from Witchery.
  • Look 3 – Party – Who doesnt love a great pre xmas party, great excuse to get dressed up and add that extra bling! I choose this gorgeous Wayne Cooper dress from Myer.  I absolutely love the colour and it really makes a statement. Ladies dont go for boring old BLACK, add a pop of clour to an outfit and choose a bold colour.
  • Look 4 – Conservative Look – This dress I picked up from Jacque E, I loved the printed A line fabric, I added a white fresh cropped blazer with this look to give it the stylish and modern classic look to it. Keep jewellery to a minimum, and add a clutch and you are ready to go !

MC – Giuilana & Bill Event – Westfield Fountain Gate

Friday 26th October 2014-  What an amazing day we had at Westfield Fountain Gate! I was lucky enough to Emcee the Fashion Event of the Year at Westfield Fountain Gate.

We showcased all the Latest Trends for SS1. Jumpsuits, Playsuits, Colour, Prints, Printed Pants, Summer Whites and Dreamy Pastals were on the runway.

Meeting Giuliana & Bill Rancic backstage was AMAZING! They were so real and down to earth, we chatted about Life, fashion and baby Duke and how much they loved Australia. We talked about our fashion parade and all the Australian Designers she absolutely loves.

I was lucky enough to be invited this year to the Myer Marquee for Stakes Day which is the last day of the Spring Carnival!

I had a few weeks to prepare, what was I going to wear etc a hat or facinator??? Decisions, Decisions……..

Well dresses I have no problem getting my hands on, a few stunning styles, it was the weather that I was most concerned with, I had a few options….(as a stylist we must have options!) I was lucky to have a few….

I went straight to Kitchy Ku for my stunning Black lace dress (available to purchase thru my website email order thru to vic.accessories@bigpond.com.au) $179.00 RRP $240. It was so appropriate for the day, classic Black and Lace. I also added my Moschino Leather Belt along with my Wittner Black Shoes.

Walking in we were greeted with a glass of champagne and great atmosphere of fashion, style and colour. The DJ was playing the latest tracks and the dance floor had already formed….. Met some amazing fashion bloggers along with quite a few B grade celebs. I was hoping to meet the fab Jen Hawkins but the ever so handsome Kris Smith along with the stunning Lauren Phillips were happy to chat and take pictures with.

The dance floor was the place to be, Bernie was rocking it till finish time!

Drinks and food were a non stop, from tasty mini burgers, to fish cakes and tuna and cucumber picks! It was truly the place to be…………Loved every second of it. VT

Spring Summer Trends

So glad to be out of the dreaded winter……..

Spring Summer trends are out in stores at the moment, and we are loving the White on White, Citrus yellow and a favourite of mine Hot Pink!

I have show cased some amazing clothes and fashion with some workshops that I have conducted already this season, stores such Seed, Country Road, Jacquie E, and Esprit have some amazing pieces that are all available at the moment.

Remember that not all of us can wear white, depending on our skin tone and colouring you may want to stick to the cream or off white tones.

Remember to also Accessorise , jewellery always makes an outfit , and a pop of colour makes an ordinary outfit a little more interesting. I am working closely with a stunning jewellery wholesaler to have it available on my site which I am working on.

And what about shoes ! Straps and wedges and chunky heels are everywhere, I just purchased my summer strapy sandal with a thick silver heel.

I love spring summer and all the amazing new fashion, just need the weather to stick to one season for a few days!

Enjoy

How to embrace trends

Victoria Tomaro Stylist

How to embrace trends

As a stylist I am constantly asked “how do I embrace new trends ? And how do I incorporate it in my wardrobe……?”

Never try to follow all trends, stick to the ones that suit you and your shape and more importantly your lifestyle! There’s is nothing worse than someone who is really trying too hard, or a person that only wears a certain brand.

Learn to be open to new styles and fashion. Play around with fashion.

My first rule is to know your shape and always show off your best assets.

Victoria Beckham is known in the fashion industry to always wear what works for her , ( this is a recent thing) she now knows what works for her and very rarely gets it wrong…

Another one of my favourites is the beautiful Cate Blanchett. Always so classy and lady like and stylish. Think about different looks and what you like and dislike.

If your a classic girl go for streamline fitted clothes . Clothes that have great detail and structure. Bold colours and fabrics with texture. Think of stores like Cue, Witchery.

Flowy girls ( is what I call them), they tend to go for loose clothes and long shirts with leggings or boots or flowy dresses. These women also know their shape and what works for them. They also layer well . Think of stores like Country Road, Trenery, Susan.

Latest fashion girls. We all know a few of these girls. Whatever is new in the stores, whatever the latest trends are , they have them. They don’t like to wear anything last season ! And embrace colours and are quite out their in the fashion stakes. Think of Zara, Sass & Bide, Manning Cartell.

I also tell my clients to buy one fashion magazine every couple of months. Get to know what is new and more importantly where to buy these items.

Practice makes perfect, don’t give up. Keep at it , and when in doubt keep it simple. It also applies to fashion.

And accessorise whenever you can, it does wonders for your look.

Looking Good = Feeling Great!

victoria tomaro stylist

As a stylist…….
I am always asked the importance of feeling great and how our shopping experience has left my clients feeling happy and positive about their body. With the right clothes and a few style tips and introducing colour I can have you looking amazing!

It’s as simple as changing your hairstyle or wearing your make up differently!
It’s a known fact that we always shop in the same stores and pick the same looks and clothes, and most of the time they are wrong for our shape. …..

We need to embrace our shape, that is the first point I would like to get across, having stylist is about making the best of what you have! Curves, tummies, or lack of shape must be embraced. There are clothes out their that create the illusion of what God never gave us, it’s all abut learning the art of dressing for your shape.

When you look amazing your mind set changes and you start feeling happier and your attitude really changes.

Spend that little bit of extra time in putting your outfit together and a little bit of bronzer , mascara and lip gloss makes the world of difference.
