I am a Personal Stylist and Shopper based in Buckinghamshire offering:
Wardrobe Edit – an in depth look at what you have, what you need, what works and what doesn’t with a cull if needs be.
Shopping Trip – time spent hitting the shops to update your wardrobe and try on different styles. Think of me as your shopping buddy!
Online Help & Skype – if you don’t have the time to go out to the shops but have access to the internet, we can have a Skype chat to help with some outfits you need assistance on. I can also source items online that I would recommend for you and send links via an email, this however does tend to work best once we have met and had a few sessions together already.
Gift Vouchers – available for any of the above.
Our first initial contact will be to decide on what approach works best for you if you haven’t already decided; a Wardrobe Edit or Shopping Trip.I will then ask you to fill in a short questionnaire which will help me get an understanding of you personally and give me a head start before we start our work together.
Wardrobe Edit: We will spend time trying items on from your wardrobe, talking through how they do or don’t work for you. It is worth pointing out here that I don’t use ‘seasons' to talk about colour. I believe all colours can work, it is simply about finding which shade is right for you. A first Wardrobe Edit can take 2-3 sessions dependent on your wardrobe size. From the review of you wardrobe we will make a list of what we feel is missing in your wardrobe.
Shopping Trip: For the Shopping Trip we will both select items we feel suit you, some will be updates to older pieces in your wardrobe, some may be looks we just want to try or you may be looking for a specific item for an occasion. When working with a stylist this is the time to try out new styles or items you wouldn’t usually wear. The trip will be at your pace, I am not going to push you into spending your money on items that you won’t feel comfortable wearing, this is your wardrobe, not mine and we can learn from the good and the bad.
If more time is needed, then we will meet again. I would suggest wardrobes need to be reviewed twice a year along with shopping trips together to keep you on track but this can differ for everyone.
These are the two main areas that seem to work best with clients. However you may prefer some online help or a Skype call to review some specific items. You may feel that you would prefer to shop alone and just need someone to be honest about what you currently have in your wardrobe. Or you may have a completely different idea to what you need from a Personal Stylist. I am here to help so please ask about other services that may suit you.
To start with I suggest working in sessions of 3 hours. This has proven to be the best amount of time without it becoming a little ‘information overload’. Sometimes after working together awhile this reduces and sometimes it needs to be longer, I adjust costs accordingly of course. Prices vary from service to service so it's best to email me and once we decide how I can help, we can take it from there. I am based in Buckinghamshire, however willing and able to travel.
I see my services as investing in yourself. A personalised course in your style. I know that I shine far more when I am ‘dressed to impress’ and I also believe in myself more if I am feeling good about how I am presented. I cater for all budgets from Tesco to Temperley, I can help.
