I felt I needed some inspiration to make the best of my casual everyday wardrobe as I am a "fashion schizophrenic". I needed to hone my look so I could get out the door without worrying about what I was wearing, and decided to hire a personal stylist.
I loved the frank and forthright wardrobe session where we looked at each item of clothing in my closet and Lizzie's fresh eyes could see if suited me or not. Chucking things out gave me a real sense of freedom!
I loved shopping with Lizzie as she gave me access to so many new brands that I had discounted in the past because I thought they were too "boring". She helped me see how these pieces could be the building blocks of my newly put together wardrobe.
Now I am happier choosing outfits, for both day and evening, and feel more confident that I leave the house looking stylish and in my own 'look'.
I feel like I have a whole wardrobe to wear without any "fashion don't"s in it that I can just chuck on and feel great in. I now look at clothes differently when I am shopping, and I can see what might really work for me rather than always looking for a statement piece.
My husband keeps asking if I am wearing new things and I can truthfully say that "this old thing" really is a beautiful piece from my wardrobe, but that I am now wearing in a modern way.
Lizzie has an innate sense of style as well as a warm and engaging manner. Doing something as personal as going through your wardrobe and shopping for new things could have been embarrassing, but we had a great time laughing at some dreadful mistakes and marvelling at how flattering the right thing can be.
See you for spring shopping!!!
I had bought Lizzie's book some time ago and read it on holiday after I had accepted a new role with one of the Big four. With a company change, it was a good time for me to reconnect with my passions and consider how I could enhance my personal brand which includes my dress code.
Despite having 2 wardrobes rammed full of clothes, I kept finding myself with nothing to wear. My work wear style hadn't changed in 10 years and my personal wardrobe was shabby, outdated and cheap. I had completely lost all shopping and style confidence!
As I'd got older I'd become less confident in what I was choosing to wear, and certainly found the shopping process overwhelming, with too much choice.
I was prompted to contact Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy because I was fed up with my wardrobe. I was overbuying, and not making good, clear decisions as I had too many clothes and hated getting dressed.
I recently received a promotion, managing a team and working with senior executives at a Bank.
Between all the moving, and all the challenges in between, I forgot about myself and about how I wanted to represent myself professionally, socially, and personally.
A recommendation from an executive coach I was working with prompted me to reach out to Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy. I had reached a point in my career where I was looking to take on more responsibility, and it was suggested that some attention to my personal brand would be transformational while requiring little effort on my part.
I just moved to London and I did not have the time or talent to pull together new things for my wardrobe to make me feel like I lived in London. So I contacted Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy for some help.
Having recently turned 40 I wanted to step in to my new decade with confidence. Updating my wardrobe was a way to celebrate where I had got to in my life rather than stressing about getting older!
I’ve always had the classic problem of a wardrobe full of clothes but nothing to wear and I needed to dramatically pare down the volume of clothes and focus on higher quality pieces that would work hard for me. I had been wanting to work with LESC for a while, and the birth of my first child seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.
I had a wardrobe full of clothes, but I didn't enjoy wearing them and didn't feel comfortable in them. It was a struggle to get dressed each morning! I had also been reflecting on my career and where my next step will take me - I wanted to feel like a confident leader.
