I have been in the business as a personal shopper for many of the top high street stores and have been lucky enough to attend some fabulous fashion shows where I have been both a guest and also worked behind the scenes.
The reason for this blog post is to share with you some of the things I have learnt upon my journey, the first one being the “SEVEN SECOND RULE”.
This applies to the first time you see or meet somebody. Seven seconds is all it takes for them to form an opinion of you and if you count out seven seconds, it brings home to you how little time you actually have.
This seven seconds is all about your appearance and how you present yourself, smiling is extremely important and will take you a long way. By dressing appropriately, always being well groomed and using accessories will give you your own individual style.
Always be mindful of your surroundings, so in business behave professionally, dress smartly and use eye contact at all times. Always offer a firm handshake.
So with everything that's going on right now and with us either being furloughed or having to work from home how does this rule applies to us? The answer is quite a lot. If every morning you get up and just throw on your old jogging bottoms, scrape back your hair and don’t bother putting on your lipstick and mascara,every time you walk pass the mirror and look at yourself you will feel slovenly and unkempt and if you're already feeling emotionally exhausted this will make you feel even worse.
It feels good to get dressed up in something other than just sweat pants so try different approach, make a little effort and see how it inspires and brightens up your mood.
Lets also take this time to slow down, to reconnect with ourselves and our families, even it is just face timing, chatting over the garden fence or through windows, life has suddenly got very simple, let’s embrace it.
Take care of you and yours. Love Catherine xx
My love for clothes and understanding of women’s body shapes comes from an early age when in my teens I used to sell jeans on a market stall.
Armed with the knowledge, once a woman knows how to dress, her body confidence speaks for its self.
One of my top tips for dressing is sleek simplicity and keeping things basic. There’s nothing sexier than a crisp white t-shirt, a pair of jeans and a structured blazer all of which are key pieces in every fashionista’s wardrobe. This can then be a playground for accessories, footwear, bags, jewellery and scarves, the list is endless.
Find your style and remember, just because something is in fashion it doesn’t always mean it will suit you.
Invest in key pieces as this is the back bone to your wardrobe.

Over in Paris this week, the catwalks were filled with some cool-looking coral pieces at Chloe, Moncler Gamme Rouge, and Alexander McQueen.
This springtime shade is a popular floral and doesn't surprise me that designers have worked the poppy/geranium hue into their collections. Take a closer peek at more photos below, and let me know if you'll be rocking the coral colour next season.
Note: they look particularly vibrant paired with camel and navy, so pack a punch now!
Python, zebra, cheetah, croc and more animal prints roamed free and wild across the catwalk shows this season.
Victoria Beckham showed devotion to leopard print, Isabel Marant backed snake pattern trousers, while Tom Ford couldn’t decide and spliced together as many patterns as he could in a single look.
We have lots of animal print here at Fuzzy Goose, featured on tops, camis, jeans, jackets and jumpers.
Pop in and take a walk on the wild side!
