Wardrobe Audit

Would you like a fresh perspective on the items in your wardrobe? Many women have wardrobes full of clothes – but wear only a small proportion of them. In fact, research shows that most women only ever wear 20% of their wardrobe. If you recognise that yourself why not book me for a wardrobe audit. A fresh pair of eyes can work wonders with tired wardrobes. And there will be absolutely no pressure to get rid of anything you would rather keep. I promise.

Your Wardrobe Audit will:

  • show you how you can wear more of your clothes
  • make the very best of what you have
  • surprise yourself by creating new coordinated looks
  • freshen your wardrobe with de-cluttering
  • identify the gaps in your wardrobe ie key colours or key items

Fee: £55 per hour 

Personal Shopping

Hate shopping for clothes? Find the whole experience tiring and unrewarding? Frustrated by buying items you don’t really like? Don’t have time to waste ‘going round in circles’? Having a specialist shopper with you solves all of those problems. We decide ahead of time what we are looking for, often based on your style or wardrobe consultation. I do the research and then we meet – usually in the West End. Within a couple of hours you go home confidently with your purchases. And a good idea how to apply those skills yourself in the future.

“I bought three items you recommended for me – all within 15 minutes! I’m so pleased – as you know I’ve previously spent many hours wandering around the shops and coming away with nothing.” – Karen


Going shopping with me will:

  • save you time and energy
  • give you a fresh perspective
  • give you confidence that you will still love your purchases way into the future
  • protect you from over enthusiastic sales staff
  • help keep you within your budget and away from bad purchasing habits

Special Occasion Style Consultation

How I would have loved to have had access to a specialist style consultant when I was a mature bride! At the time I relied on instinct and a super stylish girlfriend’s advice (thank you Petra!) when choosing my outfit. Here’s a pic taken at my wedding to my gorgeous husband Richard. It’s only now that I realise that although the style was PERFECT, a warmer colour would have looked even better. But without specialist help how was I to know…

Of course you want to look your best on your big day or your son or daughter’s big day. But it’s all too easy to feel overwhelmed by the choices on offer. Hat or fascinator or hair ornament? If it’s to be a hat – what shape should I go for? Do I really have to wear green because that’s the colour theme? What DOES a 50, 60 or (in the case of my new stepmother) an 84 year old wear to her own wedding???

And these days there are other considerations too. Sensitivity between the Mother of the Bride who is an ex-wife and the new wife. What to wear that will be both stylish and appropriate?

Whether your special event is a wedding, black tie, special birthday or even a ship naming ceremony during your Special Occasion Style Consultation I can:

  • answer questions about what is appropriate
  • help you to decide on hat shape, size and colour
  • point you in the right direction with respect to hair styles
  • help you in your decision as to the shape, style and fabric of your outfit
  • show you how to wear accessories
  • show you where to shop
  • give you make-up colours and skills that make you look your best on the day

If you wish, you could combine this consultation with a personal shopping trip in the West End.
