ARE YOU DRESSED FOR SUCCESS?
"After being back at work for a year from my maternity leave, I realized that my wardrobe was becoming dull, boring and a little too comfortable, especially with a 2 yr old. I was rotating from only a few key pieces that consisted of blacks and greys. I was afraid to use colour as I did not want to be seen as a mother trying to dress like a teenager. I felt boring and unprofessional and wanted change to boost my self-esteem.
When I met with Teca, she was very pleasant, friendly and informative. Not only did she find suitable colours for my personal style, she took the time to go through exercises to explain what worked and didn't work for me, and why. Teca was supportive and encouraging through the whole process.
This change was a certainly a very personal issue and Teca made the whole process very easy and comfortable. She was great to work with." Carmen M.F, Image Consulting Client
Your style is a signature that you carry around with you wherever you go. What does your style reflect? As a professional, showing up polished, poised and distinguished will in set you up for success.
Do you know how to strategically manage your look and wardrobe to communicate your value? Does your style reflect your personality, your profession, and your desired role?
Showing up to work dressed professionally is only one element of your personal brand or executive presence, yet it is key to attracting the right attention. If you want to have confidence, influence and impact, consider investing in a wardrobe and style upgrade.
The confidence gained when you dress for success is what my past clients have identified as one of the best outcomes of working on their image.
Having confidence gives you the courage to ask for what you want, connect with others in a more meaningful way and opens up a world of possibility and opportunity you likely were unable to see before.
It would be an honour to work with you to begin defining or redefining your personal and professional style.
Watch my discussion with Lorna Blake of Empowered Yourself Consulting as I demonstrate how to use colour to energize your wardbobe.

Colour is a great communicator. It can convey our emotions, express our personalities, impact our moods, display our energy, and influence our attitudes. When you are choosing something to wear, do you give much thought to the colour that you choose or do you simply guess? The colours that naturally occur in you, cannot be found in anyone else nor is it always easy to figure out what your colours are. You are a unique person with a unique design.
How it works:
Identify the colours that naturally occur in YOU. This is typically the first step in the Image Consulting process. You will be taken through the 12 season colour analysis process.

Coming in to see Teca was an amazing experience! I was looking to get a better understanding of a classic yet modern look, with clean lines and a more refined tone. The lessons I learned from Teca are priceless, to say the least. I can now go shopping and know exactly what works for me because she tailored the session just for me.

"I hire Teca as a birthday gift for my wife. It's been more than a month now and my wife still raves about her experience. Overall, I don't think I could have asked for a better experience or better value. She spent more time than she needed to to make sure that she delivered the results we were looking for.
