I was up for a large promotion at work and feedback leading into this told me I should more purposefully consider wardrobe and my 'brand' if I wanted to make the next step. This was a great prod for me to reach out to Lizzie.
The challenge I faced was that I needed to look more 'presidential' but still look like me. I am a relaxed and easy going person, so I had trouble making those two things match. I had never thought purposefully about how to portray myself through my wardrobe and I never shopped with any purpose - I just went when I really needed something new.
I needed help to take stock, think through what image I wanted to portray, and then purposefully gather pieces to make a great wardrobe that suited me in my role.
I found the wardrobe and style review sessions really interesting. It was great to take a step back and consider what I wanted to accomplish. Lizzie has a great process and asked some good and challenging questions which helped me a lot. At the end I felt she had really understood me and what I was about, and was then ready to help me to 'be me', but with a 'presidential' look.
The shopping session was great fun. Lizzie is great - she would pick things I never would have myself, but when I put them on I loved them. She looked for things specifically for me, and was very clear on feedback of what worked, didn't work and why, which I found really useful.
I have ended up with a great wardrobe - I love everything in it! One of the best parts of my day is waking up and trying to decide what to wear, as I have so many great choices now. I learned quite a bit about what colours work for me, and how to put an outfit together so I am really pleased.
I feel great now; much more confident with the clothes I have, more confident to put an outfit together that works, and I feel I look authentic yet still portraying the 'presidential' look that I wanted for work.
I get a huge amount of comments now, especially from colleagues. People noticed an immediate difference and this builds your confidence even further.
I would absolutely recommend working with Lizzie! I think that many professional women underinvest in themselves and finding their 'brand'. It is really amazing how much of a positive change you can make in yourself and how you are viewed by investing the time in your wardrobe and your look - all while still being authentically you. Its well worth the investment. Thanks Lizzie!
