Reinventing Your Look Starts With Discovering Your Personal Style - Find your personal style blueprint and transform your appearance and your wardrobe
With this initial style makeover consultation I guide you to discovering and defining your own personal style formula. Your unique style formula will express who you are now and how you want to be seen. It represents your style vision for yourself.
We use your style formula as a blueprint to solve all your style and wardrobe issues. Not necessarily all at once, I hasten to add -- just as Rome wasn't built in a day, it will take a little while to totally turn your wardrobe around. However, you will see results straight away, when I show you how to use your style formula to put together one or more outfits from your current clothing and accessories (or identify what to add to get to your desired look).
Your style formula helps with...
Deciding what to wear -- making getting dressed and looking great faster, easier and stress-free
Identifying what's missing from your wardrobe
Shopping for new clothing and accessories that you'll actually wear and that extend your current wardrobe -- saving you money on clothes you rarely if ever wear and ensuring you get more wear out of your current clothes
Creating an inspirational wardrobe -- over time, as you build out your wardrobe to cover all areas of your life, this new approach to wardrobe building will ensure you have no more "I've got nothing to wear moments". You'll have outfits you love for every occasion.
I start by sending you a style homework package -- don't worry, it's fun and won't take long to do. It gets you focussed on thinking about your current style: what you like and what you don't like about your clothing, accessories and style.
During our appointment I use a powerful, tried and test process to discover and define your unique personal style formula. We start the session with a style interview, then review your home work together. During the process I identify potential style words for your style formula. Then, together, we refine your words into your unique formula.
Using your formula we look at pictures of clothes and looks you love to identify which aspects of those items represent your style words, this starts to build your personal style glossary so you can recognise those elements again in other garments and accessories.
Next I assess your body shape and proportions. Then we move into your wardrobe (or, if you've come to me, to your suitcase) and I'll put together some outfits that match your style formula (sometimes, that may mean starting a shopping list of items that will extend your current wardrobe and add the missing style magic to outfits you already have).
Knowing your style formula makes it easier to solve all your style and wardrobe issues. It's the key to unlocking your freedom of expression and getting your appearance to work for you with clothes you love. It allows you to become more like you on the outside.

During this style makeover consultation we'll also identify your specific style issues and agree what our next steps should be to achieve those goals.
If you haven't had a colour analysis (or if you feel your colouring may have changed) I will recommend that we do that -- it's one of the fundamentals to looking good and a real asset for creating a flattering mix and match wardrobe
