Style Rebellion at Central Square

By Blog

Hello I’m Ema, the stylist behind Style Rebellion.

I’m a mother, wife, daughter, sister and a granddaughter.  I’d been a stylist my whole life when I decided to take it to the next level.  I studied at the Australian Style Institute in Melbourne and graduated in 2016 with an Advanced Certificate of Professional Style & Image.

What is a stylist? 

I help people look and feel their best through the medium of clothes.  Basically create the best version of YOU!  My clients range from as young as 14, up to 87 years. I help men and women look their best, whether it’s for a new job, new mother, mother of the bride, weight gain or weight loss, hot date, regain their confidence or just wanting to change/find their individual style.

Currently I am collaborating with Central Square Ballarat to bring you one hour styling sessions for FREE!

How does this work?

You make a booking through Facebook or directly with me on 0437 291 690.  We meet at Central Square on the first Friday of the month.  We sit down for about 5 minutes to answer some questions about you and why you are here.  Then we go shopping within Central Square to find your personal style.  All in under an hour.   It’s that easy and it’s FREE.

Plus if you are one of the first three clients to book in the months of March, April, May and June 2020 you will ALSO receive an $80 gift card, kindly provided by Central Square Ballarat.

So what are you waiting for!  Book a free styling session with me today.

Back to school, back to you

By Blog

Image 4The long summer holidays are so wonderful to spend time with family and friends, with hot days that seem to never end, trips to the beach and the pool, ice cream treats and warm nights filled with laughter, food on the barbecue and cool sea breezes. Although the days roll by, time seems to stand still and the space between Christmas and New Year drifts lazily into the past.

All of a sudden, the realisation hits, the holidays are due to end. It’s back to work and back to school, back to deadlines and routine, back to making lunches and after school activities, watching the weeks fly by and the end of another year will be here in the blink of an eye.

Hang on to some of the relaxed holiday vibe and celebrate the return to the work/school routine with a little retail therapy.

Enjoy the freedom that the school term can bring by browsing the shops at your leisure, trying clothes on without kids nagging you, sit down for lunch and eat straight away without any disruption! Escape the oppressive heat of February and get back to you!

Come to discover Central Square Ballarat.

 

Grab a denim jacket

By Blog

Meet Ema, stylish local mum and owner of Style Rebellion, a personal stylist with the skills to help you look and feel fabulous.

086Who better to ask for styling tips than someone who styles for a living? During Frocktober, Ema is sharing her four key styling tips for any woman looking to find the perfect outfit to suit their shape, style and budget. This is her final piece of advice for Frocktober followers.

“Denim will never go out of fashion.

The denim jacket features heavily this season in several lighter shades. Perfect to team with a wrap dress for those cooler days and nights. The denim dress is going strong and a great casual piece for those spring days. Just Jeans, Rivers, Supre and Suzanne Grae all have great denim designs.

Remember style is individual and should reflect your own personality. Fashion is supposed to be fun, so play around with it. Always wear a smile and be confident!”

Ema is in charge of the Central Square Instagram feed for the month of October and taken on the challenge to style 31 frocks in 31 days in celebration of Frocktober. Ema’s looks will be on Instagram under the #31frocksin31days and will include spring fashion looks for young girls, teenagers, young ladies and mature ladies.

Central Square Ballarat has taken on the Frocktober cause as a fundraising effort in 2018 to help support the women of Ballarat. So many women, friendship groups and families in Ballarat have been affected by cancer and we want to engage our retailers, shoppers and local supporters to get involved as a way of raising awareness and supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

You can donate to Frocktober at our fundraising page.

Thank you for your support.

Accessories make the outfit

Who better to ask for styling tips than someone who styles for a living? During Frocktober, Ema will share her four key styling tips for any woman looking to find the perfect outfit to suit their shape, style and budget.

“Accessories make the outfit. Stick to your usual fashion style and add an on-trend feature with the right shoe, bag or item of jewellery.

Invest in a great pair of sneakers. This fashion trend is holding fast, including wearing sneakers with suits! Spendless Shoes have a great range of sneakers to suit everyone’s style.

The strappy heel is very popular and out in array of colour this season. Making it easy to mix and match with your clothing. Valpied Shoes have got you covered this season with their new heel collection. Myer have a fantastic range of shoes, jewellery, bags and headwear for the upcoming Spring Racing Carnival. Portmans and Noni B also have a great selection of outfits perfect for racing. For the men you can’t go past Roger David and Myer. Also check the range of bags in Strandbags.

Statement earrings, another trend this spring, with bigger and bolder is better. You cannot go past Lovisa for their selection of earrings. Don’t forget the new Mimco range in Myer. ”

“The biggest trend this season is Print!

Floral, polka dots and stripes feature heavily this spring, from dresses, tops, pants and even suits. Update your wardrobe with at least one print piece. Try a floral wide leg pant, a polka dot wrap dress or a stripe blazer. The wrap dress with ruffles is very popular this season and available in floral, polka dot or stripes. Myer, Portmans and Target all have a great range of dresses, pants and blazers in print.”
