BBC interview!

Hello there, hope you are keeping well!

I had the pleasure of being invited by BBC Radio London on the Vanessa Feltz morning show, to talk about winter fashion, the effects of Covid19 on the fashion/retail industry and if people are still buying clothes….

Yes, the face of fashion has changed in the last 8 months. Shopping habits have evolved but people are still shopping. As the seasons change, we need to update our wardrobe, purchase working from home attire, knitwear, casual pieces and warm outwear. There has been a massive increase in online shopping, so I pivoted my business to adapt and meet the ever growing need to work virtually.

As a trained personal stylist, I work with you to fill the gaps in your wardrobe for the season. I select clothes for you online that fit and flatter you, ensuring they complement your bodyshape, colouring and lifestyle. For best results, have your colours and bodyshape analysed prior (Both services are also available virtually)

Benefits of online shopping:

  • You are in the comfort of your home, so less stress and time traveling and exposure to the virus
  • There are more sizes available online than in the stores
  • Access to a wider variety of brands and styles shopping online
  • Easy delivery to your home and collection for returns

How Online shopping works:

  • Simply send me your shopping wish list to Style@potential-u.co.uk
  • I shop online for you in increments of: 5 selections £100, 10 selections £200, 15 selections £300, 20 selections £400 etc
  • Your personalised online selections are sent to you with images, styling tips and links to purchase, via a PowerPoint presentation
  • You purchase the pieces you like most
  • Your online shop is delivered to your home
  • You are ready for the season! 😊

5 Festive Dresses

Hello there,

Hope you are keeping warm in one of the coldest autumns we’ve had in years!

We are fast approaching Christmas, and now is a great time to get your festive outfits ready so you are fully prepared for those social events.

Here are my top 5 festive dresses that will see you through all Christmas and New year festivities:

1. Day Dress

There is so much to do in the run up to Christmas, from school plays, carol services to Christmas shopping. A flattering day dress is the perfect antidote for such busy days.

Go for a casual knitted dress during the day. They are super versatile and comfortable. You can dress them down in flat boots as you run around doing your Christmas shopping and dress them up in heeled boots for smarter evening events. Either way you’ll look effortlessly stylish and feel warm in a knitted day dress.

2. Christmas Day Dress

Your Christmas day dress serves many purposes! It needs to be comfortable, special and practical. Avoid bellowing flute sleeves, we don’t want the gravy all over you. Christmas day is a long day, so something easy to wear and expandable is ideal.

A soft velvet dress with a stretchy waste is perfect to ensure you feel special capturing precious moments with your family, and comfortable once you’ve over indulged in all those delicious festive delicacies.

3. Party Dress.

This dress must me fun! A sparkly dress with sequin or glitter is perfect. It may sound like a dress for a 5-year-old girl, but every woman irrespective of her age deserves to have fun with her clothes and feel youthful. Steer clear of prints and anything too dark and dreary, remember Its a party! 😉

4. Drinks, Cocktail and Dinner Dress

Go elegant for festive drinks, cocktails and dinner. Satins, silk, lace and velvet are luxe fabrics that ooze sophistication and elegance. Opt for midi or knee length dresses to show off those pins sensually.

5. Desk to Dinner Party Dress

This season is all about, suiting and separates. Be brave in a tailored suit or chic jumpsuit. Dare to be unconventional!

*With so much to do in the run up to Christmas, we’d like to take the stress of deciding what to wear off your hands by offering you a selection of 5 festive dresses for just £100.

3 simple steps for your personalised 5 dresses:

BBC…3R’s

Hello, I hope this year has started off well for you.
I had the honour of being invited to the BBC to share my nuggets on how to improve our style this year….
How we dress matters, it not only affects how we feel about ourselves but how we are perceived. Stats tell us that first impressions are made within 4 seconds of meeting a person.
For a winning style personally or professionally, here are my 3 R’s to improving your style this year:
Review. Release. Restyle.
 
Review!
 Most of us are “creatures” of habit, we tend to wear the same looks year in year out. We aren’t aware of what suits us, so we are inclined to stay within our comfort-zone.
Our trained personal stylist will empower you with skills for life by Reviewing your colours and bodyshape. We will equip you with how to wear colours that give your skin a natural youthful glow. We also teach you clothing styles that best flatter and complement your bodyshape and proportions.

Step out of your comfort zone and let us Review what complements you best with

 
Release!
In nearly 11 years of styling clients and decluttering thousands of wardrobes, I’ve only seen 2 client wardrobes that weren’t overflowing with clothes. And ironically most of us only wear only 20% of our bulging wardrobes….
Are you hanging onto all those clothes for nostalgic reasons? Clothes that no longer fit or flatter you? Or perhaps they are dated or ill-fitting?
We will help you Release clothes in your wardrobe that don’t make you look or feel good.
Clear your space by booking a Wardrobe detox consultation and we will help you embrace a flattering capsule wardrobe this year:
Restyle!
Majority of us tend to wear clothing styles we are familiar with day in day out, which leaves little room for inspiration. Our personal stylists  Restyle you by exploring and injecting something different into your wardrobe this year.
We save you time, stress and ensure you don’t waste money on clothes that do nothing to uplift you.

Try someone NEW! Restyle and make a great impression this year by booking some  Personal Shopping with us this season.
