The weather looks perfect, the sun is shining, the trees are losing their leaves one by one and yet looking from ones office window, Sydney looks glorious. Until one little step out makes you run back to your office desk for the coat, the scarf, hat and the gloves. Reminds me of the scene with Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in the movie “Desk Set” when they are sitting outside and Spencer offers his beautiful company a sandwich.
To me winter has a sense of romance and drama with layered styles, coats and accessories giving one the feeling of cosiness and protection against chilly Sydney breezes and oh the rain!
So this is a winter story of styles and little lux treatments to give yourself in order to beat the winter blues even though Spencer Tracy is not waiting on the roof top... sigh!
On a serious note it is evident that the cold and the shorter length of days cause tiredness and an increase in depressive moods in women. So how do we combat these depressive feelings that bombard our world and all of a sudden we are lost in a flood of tears and overwhelming pressures of life in general, let alone kids, family, relationships, work and the list goes on!
Yes, one of the most subconscious things we do is go shopping and buy a whole load of pieces to soak up the tears without realizing that we just filled our wardrobe with “things” we may wear ones! The best thing to do when shopping for pieces is to learn about your wardrobe. What goes with which piece, the fabric, the style, the print and cut.
