HELLO M'DARLING!

DOES THIS SOUND A LITTLE LIKE YOU?

 
 

“I’ve lost the spark of joy that clothes used to give me. Even if someone gave me $10,000 and a weekend without the kids, I still wouldn't know where to start."

“My body has changed since having kids and I don’t really know what to do with it. I don’t know how to deal with it. My clothes don’t look like they used to.”

“I got caught up in the whirlwind of motherhood and started feeling like getting dressed was a chore and spending time on my appearance was precious time wasted. I've completely lost myself in this.”

I hate shopping! I hate fitting rooms! They just highlight my cellulite and my stretch marks and the dark circles under my eyes. I've cried in the mall before.”

“Accepting my new mum body is hard. And putting away clothes that don't quite fit but almost do, is the worst. Boo! I had some really cute clothes.”

“I fixate on my stomach. I try to give myself grace and tell myself all the cliche, affirmative things like, ‘You grew two humans in there’, but it never goes far.”

 

GAH! I KNOW, I KNOW – I USED TO FEEL EXACTLY THE SAME WAY!

Disenchanting isn't it.

WELL, No more DARLING-HEART – no MORe!

I'M CLARISSA GRACE & I adore you already!

{That's me down there trying to look pretty with a mouthful of hair.}

 
 

I HELP AMBITIOUS MUMS EMBRACE THEIR BODY, BELIEVE IN THEIR BEAUTY & TRANSFORM THEMSELVES THROUGH THE POWER OF PERSONALISED STYLE. 

 

...................................

 

I've been professionally trained in fashion design, costume design and haute couture through The Paris American Academy, and created hundreds of couture wedding gowns for brides under my own label, Clarissa Grace. I've been splashed on the pages of Vogue, Cosmopolitan, New Idea and Woman's Day, chatted on Channel 7 and Nine, and dressed some of Australia's most shiny stars such as Isabel Lucas, Kate Ritchie, Jodi Gordon and Ricki-Lee Coulter.

 

 

I wholeheartedly believe that there is nothing so powerful as a woman who feels beautiful. After the suicide of my father and the death of my third son two weeks later, I experienced intimately the way grief can create a wardrobe of its own. The feminine and the colourful became baggy and black.

But after a long season of sadness and a pining for more, I made the decision to stop dressing the way I felt, and start dressing the way I wanted to feel. I started dressing like the woman I wanted to become even though I hadn't become her yet. 

Because darling – style is not superfluous. It's not about what you see on Instagram or in the magazines or on the runways.

 

IT'S ABOUT YOUR BEAUTY.

And BY BRINGING BEAUTY BACK INTO MY WARDROBE, I WAS DELIGHTFULLY SURPRISED THAT IT NOT ONLY TRANSFORMED MY STYLE… BUT MY MIND, MY HEART & MY LIFE.

{And, I know it can do the same for you!}

 

...................................

 

JUST STOP FOR A MOMENT & IMAGINE with me…

IMAGINE, selling more by charming clients with your spectacular confidence and style.

IMAGINE, shopping without a wasted moment because you know exactly what to look for, what you love, and what suits your body to perfection.

IMAGINE, feeling sexy when it counts {and sexy winking at you know who}.

IMAGINE, embracing your body the way it is right now and being grateful for the gift it is to you.

IMAGINE, dressing in minutes and swanning stylishly out the door {even with 3 kids in tow}.

IMAGINE, helping more people because you look like the expert you’ve worked so hard to become.

IMAGINE, your partner kissing you on the ear and telling you how beautiful you look today.

IMAGINE, feeling comfortable in your clothes, without the pulling, the stretching or the bunching.

IMAGINE, receiving sooooo many compliments on what you’re wearing that it becomes a little embarrassing.

 

IMAGINE RIDING ON A ROCKET SHIP OVER PARIS IN A CROP-TOP BETWEEN YOUR 2 BEST FRIENDS!

OOH LA LA! HOW SUPERB!

 
 

WELL, MY DARLING SUGAR PLUM…

I can help you get there!

{Except for the rocket ship part – I can't really help you with that. Sorry.} 

 

...................................

 

BUT BE WARNED: I DO THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY TO MOST.

 

I won’t be focussing on the fun & the frivolous completely {although I DO think that part is highly enjoyable, I think the heart stuff is pretty important too}.

I don’t do ‘fashionable’, ‘trendy’, or ‘cutting-edge’. {There is a place for all that, but mostly, I’m all about style baby – Timeless. Ladylike. Lasting.}

I don’t believe in creating perfection! {Because perfect is boring, boring, boring, and as I always say to hubby: Done is better than perfect 100% of the time and then he rolls his eyes at me.}

I won’t ever make you feel like you need to be skinnier or prettier or whatever-er. {Because that stuff is a crock of crap anyway!} {AND because I actually truly, TRULY believe that every woman is beautiful exactly the way she is.} {Yes. I’m looking at YOU. I am.}

I swear I won’t make you feel bad if you decide that most of the time you're pretty comfortable sticking with your messy-top bun, t-shirt and yoga pants. {I’m with you all the way honey!}

And even if you join this tea party with greasy hair, a 216-year-old sweater and smelling like baby puke, I will STILL love you! {No judgement. No vanity warden here. I swear on my mamas pearls.}

 

...................................

 

NOW BEAUTY? IT'S YOUR TURN!

 

SO, GET OUT YOUR FEATHER-BOA, YOUR SNAKE-SKIN GLOVES & YOUR MOVIE-STAR SUNGLASSES,


AND TOGETHER, LET'S ROCKET AWAY TO EXTRAORDINARY!

 

...................................

 

OH! And HERE ARE SOME really nice things SOME OTHER MAMAS HAVE SAID about me…

{And no, I didn't bribe them with bunches of flowers and diamond necklaces!}

"Clarissa is amazing! She completely flourished when she came into my wardrobe – pulling pieces out & showing me how I could put them together in ways I would never would have imagined. It was fun & creative & I loved every minute of it! She was so honouring of my style, my comfort & my body type. It was never about looking “skinny”, & only about dressing in a way that made me feel beautiful & confident. Clarissa is the absolute BEST choice for any woman needing help with her personal style."

{Katie Andersen – Early Childhood Teacher}

"Having someone look that deeply inside of you is both frightening and fabulous all at the same time. Clarissa taught me how style can be a reflection of my heart & an expression of the vision I have for my life. She listened to every word I said, understood my insecurities intimately, addressed them with excellence & showered me with her incredible experience & immaculate taste. The process has renewed my confidence & completely changed the way I feel about getting dressed in the morning. It's kind of magical. I promise you won’t be disappointed!"

{Hannah Bryant – Business Development Manager}

"Clarissa Grace – What a gem!  Her passion is contagious. Beauty, strength, dignity. She doesn’t just see a body to be dressed, but a soul to flourish. I loved the way she captured my character and individuality. Clothes that made me feel beautiful in my own way. It brought a joy to me that will remain far beyond a season of fashion. Clarissa’s heart just shines through in all she does – You’re beautiful.  You’re enough. You are worth more than rubies. You are perfectly you. Clarissa – you are a gift!"

{Megan Grierson ~ Founder of Intentional Spaces}

"Every encounter with Clarissa left me feeling joyous and uplifted. She just has this unique way of making you feel good about yourself, and finding beauty in the everyday. Clarissa helped me dress with confidence. I've learnt that how I present myself makes a huge difference to how I feel about myself and set's me up for a great day! Our personal style can express our personality and encourage creativity in many areas. Clarissa is beautifully encouraging and helpful, she could quickly become your best friend/sister/mentor the way she breathes fresh, inspiring air into your personal style."

{Renee Macpherson ~ Founder of Carousel Boutique}
