You need a Personal Shopper, here’s why….

As restrictions ease, cherry blossoms bloom and our social diaries get booked up, now is a perfect opportunity to infuse your spring summer wardrobe with gorgeous pieces via a personal shopping trip!

I bet you’re wondering: “why do you need a personal shopper?”.

Well, I come bearing good news on the key benefits of shopping with a personal stylist:

  • Save time – Our amazing stylists will select clothes that suit your colouring and flatter your body shape; saving you time roaming around the shops or online. This frees up precious time for you to spend with friends/ family and other priorities.
  • Keep within budget – we will help you avoid costly mistakes by selecting quality pieces that look great on you, from (high end or high street) brands that are suitable for your budget and lifestyle.
  • Rejuvenate your wardrobe – our selections will revitalize your wardrobe with unique pieces that you’ll love but may not have chosen on your own. They’ll complement your existing wardrobe and suit your personality.
  • Get pampered – It’s a form of self-care, that will eliminate the stress of shopping and is ultimately a fun experience where you get pampered in your own private personal shopping suite!

Did any of the above resonate with you?

Why not book our half day £300 or full day £500 Personal Shopping service this season to update and revive your summer wardrobe or to find the perfect outfit for that special occasion!

3 C’s of Dressing for #WFH

With the chancellor’s budget announcement last month, it looks like most of us will be working from home until September at the earliest.

Here are 3C’s of styling to consider when dress for working from home:

Colour. Comfort. Confidence!

  • Colour! Styling always starts with Colour. I love wearing happy cheery and uplifting colours and I encourage my clients to embrace colour too. 😉 God knows we need it with over a year in this pandemic.
  • Comfort is all about the cut and texture of the fabric. Breathable natural fabrics like wool, cotton, cashmere and silk are great, especially if you perspire a lot.  I also ensure the clothes I select for myself and clients flatter the body shape. So, I feel super comfortable wearing it from morning to night and my clients do too.
  • Confidence! It starts and ends with confidence for me and I try to impart that in my clients too. It’s so important to adorn our bodies in clothes that enable us to exude confidence inside out. If it doesn’t make me feel good, I won’t wear it and certainly won’t select it for my clients either. Confidence is everything!

I’ve spent hours Online Styling clients for their working-from-home clothes and thankfully they are not joggers or leggings. 😉

So, the next time you are thinking of what to buy or wear working from home, remember the 3’Cs:

Colour. Comfort. Confidence!

How to create a style that lasts a decade.

A warm welcome to February.

Yves Saint Laurent said it best: “Fashion fades, style is eternal!”

With that in mind, I have some practical style tips that will help you confidently create a timeless style that lasts a decade:

10 years in Style!
  • Embrace your Uniqueness.

You are unique; that is your power!

We live in a social media age where everyone is trying to look the same, but true beauty is being authentically you. Our quirks make us interesting. How boring would it be if we all looked the same? Accept yourself ‘flaws and all’ because perfection is a myth. Bin comparison this decade and remember; the beauty of YOU is that no one is like you; so, embrace YOU.

  • The Power of Colour

Wearing colour not only lifts your mood, it adds a beautiful natural glow to your face. Steer clear of wearing dark dreary hues that drain the colour from your face. There is a rainbow of beautiful colours that will brighten and lift your face naturally. This decade wear more colour! I promise you will look and feel better.

  • Body Beautiful

With the rise in cosmetic surgery and body ’enhancements’, there is no better time to swim against the tide and love the skin we are in. Whether you are a size 8 or 18, tall, petite, athletic, pear shaped, or curvy, you are beautiful! I have styled over three thousand people in over 12 years as a personal stylist and I am yet to meet a client I can’t style and help set on a journey of body confidence. Dressing confidently is about understanding your bodyshape and styling it in clothes that flatter and accentuate your shape.  Truth is, none of us will be how we were 20, 30 years ago or like celebrities who have assistance at their disposal. Accept and love your body as you are now. I hope the next time you look in the mirror you see how truly and uniquely beautiful you are.

  • Release!

Marie Kondo – tidying expert and author – encourages us to let go of anything that doesn’t spark joy. I’d like to add to that list: Let go of anything you haven’t worn in two years. Let go of anything that doesn’t fit or flatter you. Release clothes, shoes and accessories that no longer serve a purpose in your current lifestyle. That dress you wore when you were two sizes smaller does nothing for your confidence, so let it go! Let go of the past and embrace who you are today. We hold on to so much stuff that clutters our wardrobe taking up precious space, release them.  Our body is the only house we live in permanently. It’s so important you clothe yourself in pieces that serve you and lift your spirit. Let go and release anything that doesn’t. Less is truly more!

(To have your wardrobe decluttered, book a Wardrobe Detox consultation today)

  • Invest.

True style is timeless. Invest in quality pieces you can wear for at least 5 to 10 years. Durable pieces you can wear again and again that don’t date or fall apart.

Timeless pieces are kinder to the environment, because when you buy well, you buy less; which increases the cost per wear.

Avoid fast fashion, its disposable and the quality and manufacturing isn’t kind.

This decade I encourage you to; Invest in yourself – Invest in your style.

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.

Client Emma’s feedback 25th April 2013:

‘Joy is amazing! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my experience.

It felt like a weight lifted from my shoulders after my Wardrobe Detox.

The Personal shopping was brilliant – so many amazing outfits to choose from. 

Joy just ‘got’ me and what I was looking for straight away.  I can’t imagine any other way of shopping in the future!

The Wardrobe management was also invaluable. Thank you so much.  Can’t wait to work with you again in the autumn (if I can wait that long!)’
