It's Confidence Week here at Blue Bungalow and we had the pleasure of chatting with our very own video personality, Mimi, about all things fashion and self-love. Read on!



WHEN DID YOU FEEL YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL AND HAPPY SELF?

On my last ‘significant’ birthday, when I realised that I didn’t have to follow any style rules except my own. I’ve never felt so free, and so happy in my own skin as I do now.


WHAT OUTFIT DO YOU REACH FOR WHEN YOU'RE HAVING ONE OF THOSE "I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR'" DAYS?

Jeans and sneakers, and a beautiful shirt for a casual look, a knee length dress and heels for something more dressy. That said, Blue Bungalow has helped me have very few "I don’t know what to wear" days! I don’t think they exist here anymore!


DO YOU TEND TO DRESS ACCORDING TO YOUR MOOD OR TO THE MOOD THAT YOU WANT TO BE IN?

I am a Dopamine dresser all the way. My life motto is "Make an Effort", and no matter how I feel, even if I’m unwell or tired, I choose an outfit that makes me feel good.


WHEN IT COMES TO DRESSING FOR YOUR BODY SHAPE, WHAT'S SOMETHING THAT WORKS EVERY TIME AND MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A GODDESS?

As an Apple shape, my best strategy is to draw attention to my neck, face, wrists and ankles, and create the illusion of being taller and more slender. No matter what I wear, this remains my aim. A neckline that draws the eye upward, carefully chosen accessories, and fabulous shoes are guaranteed to tap into my Goddess every time. I’ve been thrilled to discover Blue Bungalow shoes. It’s been years since I could wear beautiful heels, that allowed me to walk without limping. There’s a Goddess moment right there!

IS THERE AN OUTFIT IN YOUR WARDROBE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL CONFIDENT AND POWERFUL, AND WHY?

I have a Ruby red velvet wiggle dress, with ruching on the side, that I wore with a beaded headband, drop earrings, and the most fabulous shoes EVER, for a recent special family event. It is a style that I wore when I was younger and loved, that I thought I could never wear again due to age, weight gain, and, unfortunately, the input of others. I once admired a similar dress when shopping with a friend, and wanted desperately to buy it. She dissuaded me saying that she felt that this particular outfit was a ‘lifestyle’ choice, and that one had to commit to dressing that way, every day. I should have ignored her, and a decade later, I am. The lesson is, that so long as the garment is the right size, and YOU love it… age, weight gain, and other peoples opinions, are all irrelevant.


IS THERE AN ITEM OF CLOTHING IN BLUE BUNGALOW'S CURRENT COLLECTION THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU COULD TAKE OVER THE WORLD?

The Partyman Black Sequin Wrap is one of the most fabulous pieces I’ve purchased so far from Blue Bungalow. I’ve worn it on different occasions, with the Black Bamboo Ruched Skirt, white jeans, and faux leather pants. It’s sparkly without being over-the-top, needs few accessories, is trans-seasonal, and looks good with everything. It’s an absolute wardrobe winner!


WHAT DOES CONFIDENCE FEEL LIKE TO YOU?

Confidence is knowing what makes you look and feel your best, and helps you walk out the door feeling fearless. I’ve come to think of my clothes as my ‘armour’, and some days I need stronger ‘armour’ than others. I don’t think there is any such thing as one singular style for me. I CAN be Boho Casual one day, Glamorous Goddess the next, Retro Elegant on another, or Coastal Chic on the next, contrary to what my ‘friend’ said when I was shopping with her. It’s about the me I want the world to see today.

ANY WORDS OF WISDOM FOR OUR BB LADIES?

Be the star in the theatre of your life. Wear what you love. Dress for the size you are, not the size you’d like to be. And life is short…wear ALL the things.
