“A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes” Vera Wang
If you feel that you have yet to discover your personal style or that your clothes aren’t doing you justice, you will really benefit from a style consultation. Let me show you how to choose clothes that you will look and feel fabulous in and wear time and again. I will advise you on the styles that work well for your lifestyle and complement your body shape – accentuating your best bits and disguising those areas you’re not quite so proud of. After all, wearing the right clothes can do more for your shape than months in the gym.
There are two options, depending on whether you’d just like to know the basics or would like more in-depth advice:
Total Style Consultation
This comprehensive consultation shows you how to:
- Select the most flattering styles and fabrics for your body shape, proportions, budget and lifestyle
- Achieve a perfect fit every time when shopping for clothes
- Express your personal style through your wardrobe
- Use accessories to enhance your look
- Develop a co-ordinated wardrobe for maximum usage
- Dress with confidence whatever the occasion
- Suggestions on where to shop
During the consultation, we will discuss your lifestyle, preferences and aspirations and together we’ll uncover and enhance your personal style. Perhaps your current wardrobe simply needs an update by introducing stylish accessories, or perhaps your wardrobe is in need of a complete overhaul. Whatever your needs, you can be sure that your make-over will make you look current, stylish and attractive and you will take away information that will last you a lifetime.
I’ll ask you to select some of your outfits (some you like, some you don’t) and we’ll review them together so that I can help you understand what works well and what not so well and how you could perhaps adapt them to make them more flattering. This will help you shop more successfully in the future, particularly as I will also provide guidance on which brands/shops are likely to suit you most.
I stock a lovely range of clothing so if you opt to come along to my studio for your consultation, you can also try out some new styles and see what looks good on you.

Less in-depth than Total Style, this service will appeal to women who are on a tight budget, short of time, can’t get to my studio, or who just want to know the style basics. It covers:
- Advice on your body shape and how to dress it.
- How to highlight areas of your body you’re happy with and camouflage those you’re not.
- Review of up to five items from your current wardrobe which you may be struggling to wear or just want a second opinion on.
- Suggestions on where to shop.
Duration: 1 hour 15 mins
Take Away: Personalised Style Sheet
Fee: Monday – Friday – £110
Saturday – £115
Whichever option you go for, a style consultation is a wise investment as it will not only provide tips on how you can update your existing wardrobe but also ensure you avoid costly clothes mistakes in future.
By the way, if you’re thinking that a Style Consultation would be great to do once you’ve lost weight, think again! It’s shape rather than size that counts when it comes to dressing to flatter your figure and your basic shape remains the same, whatever your weight. Also, I want you to feel relaxed and confident so please rest assured that, unlike stylists you may have seen on the television, I will not expect you to stand in front of the mirror near-naked! So don’t put off looking good and feeling confident in your clothes any longer.
By the way, if you do lose weight within a year of having a Total Style Consultation with me and feel that you need a bit more guidance on dressing the “new you”, I am always happy to provide a 30 minute follow-up consultation free of charge.
