ANNA MORA & BRUNELLA REAL WOMEN, REAL STYLE: MEET JILLY
Welcome to our second feature in the ‘Anna Mora & Brunella’s Real Women, Real Style Series’
Today, we’ll talk to the beautiful Jilly, a beautiful woman whom Anna Mora & Brunella wishes to celebrate for being super stylish and smart when it comes to style.
Q1. Where are you originally from, and what brought you to Dubai?
I was born in Brisbane, Australia. However, my parents moved to Hobart when I was 9, so I call Hobart home.
I moved to Vienna in my 20s. The company I worked for asked if I would like to relocate to Dubai. So, my husband and I came for a holiday, loved it, and relocated in 2007.
CONFIDENT WOMAN – Jilly says, “I love red. I always feel like a million dollars when I wear the color red!”
RUFFLE IN THE SELEVE – Jilly immediately fell in love with this dress. “I just love the ruffle in the sleeves,” she says. You could wear this dress to work or to a wedding!
Q2. When did you decide to start your own business in communications?
After the birth of my children, I knew returning to a corporate environment was not the direction I wanted at that time. Flexibility was what needed I needed to be available to do school runs and be there when they woke up after naps.
I’m a naturally organized person, and many people need organization brought into their business practices. With Facebook, Twitter and blogging being the new form of communications to end-users, I thought social media would be a great environment to coordinate organizational strategies with companies.
STATEMENT BLUE – Jilly is pictured here in a beautiful royal blue top. “I love the color and the cut,” Jilly says. As a woman who is one the run with the kids but also needs to look presentable for her clients, she loves Anna Mora & Brunella for the quality of each individual piece!
Q3. What is your advice to other women who want to mix personal style with the reality of everyday living?
It’s easy. You just need to think about where to shop, purchase a few classic outfits, and then play around with your individual flare. It’s vital to buy good quality pieces that last.
With busy schedules, women want to own clothes that they can trust will always look as good on them as the last time they wore them! This is why quality is so important!
EYE-CATCHING GLAMOUR –– I love the way this jacket brings out the blue in Jilly’s eyes! Simply gorgeous!
FUN WITH FUR – Here is Jilly in one of Anna Mora’s winter jackets! It’s a fun and elegant jacket, perfect to throw over an evening dress or over a simple top and black pants.
Q4. Why do you think it is important for women, to feel good in what they wear?
I believe it’s extremely important to feel good in what you are wearing, all the way from your underwear to your outfit. When I have a great outfit on, it’s amazing how uplifted I feel that day.
I have a bounce in my step and feel like I can take on all the tasks that a mum and career woman can throw at me. It’s the outfit plus the fact that I took time to think about myself.
We love Jilly’s smile and wise words, and I am sure you do too!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post!
