IMAGE & STYLE CONSULTATION
This session is where I really get to know you, and you me, enabling us to gain a very clear picture of what is required to get the best results from your shopping and styling session.
THE SESSION IS MADE UP OF THE FOLLOWING ELEMENTS, DEPENDING ON GOALS AND PRIORITIES:
• Review and discuss your Image Assessment, discovering where you are today, your preferences and the image you currently portray.
• See what you already have in your wardrobe - what works, what doesn't and what we need to add to a priority shopping list.
• Discussion and demonstration of colors and styles that work best.
• Look at possible alterations to existing garments - prepare suitable items ready to be taken for alterations.
• Understand you, your lifestyle, your requirements and learn more about your current shopping habits, teaching you what works and why.
• Leave you with an uncluttered wardrobe ready to be refreshed with some lovely new things!
I promise to be honest but kind and tactful – my only objective is to get you looking great and to gain a clear understanding of where you are in your life, with your current style, and where we are going to take you.
Following the wardrobe session I undertake pre shopping research and plan our session in advance so our time together is spent wisely. Where suitable, and if possible, I will book exclusive use of a personal shopping suite to make the session more relaxed.
YOU AND I WILL GO SHOPPING TOGETHER AND, DEPENDING ON YOUR PARTICULAR GOALS , BUDGET AND TIME ALLOCATED, YOU CAN:
• Try clothes that you may have previously overlooked or disregarded.
• Learn about and get clarity on how to dress in your own personal style.
• Get new ideas on where to shop.
• Learn tips and advice through demonstration using YOU!
• Go home with some lovely, wearable items to begin building your new, stylish, wardrobe.
I aim to make the personal shopping and styling experience relaxed and fun – the objective is to get you new items that make you look and feel great. The usual stresses are taken care of. You will learn a lot, have fun and buy some fantastic new garments and accessories.

In this session we work on putting together outfits so you have a clear idea of what goes with what, and gain confidence about how your wardrobe can work together. This session usually follows a personal shopping trip, for in between seasons, or for clients who already have plenty of clothes and require help making the most of what they have, creating outfits and highlighting missing pieces to make it all work.
YOU WILL HAVE:
• A clear idea of what items work together - saving you time and stress in the morning or when packing for a trip.
• A range of options and increased confidence in your look.
• A digital photographic record of your outfits for easy reference - makes packing for a trip EASY!
• Know specific items that may still be required to pull outfits together.
This session is a great follow on from shopping if you want to look great every day but don’t want to have to think about it!
Each client is different so each session is based are their goals, the budget available, and the amount of time required for the different sessions. You may have lots of clothes already and need to have a clean out to get clear on what you have that still works. Therefore, you will require a longer wardrobe session and less time shopping.
Maybe you have very few clothes (or want to start 'a fresh') and, therefore, the wardrobe session is shorter and more time is required to shop and put outfits together. If you require both casual and professional wardrobes this can take time, and is best built up over a few months with a mix of all the sessions.
Once we have created the foundations for a wardrobe that works, I can then work seasonally with you to refresh and top off sessions at intervals of anything from once a season to once every few years.
My packages start at $495 but remember you are investing in YOURSELF!
