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. Looking for other ways to boost my self confidence in the workplace, I decided to give it a try.
I was talking with a friend and suggested she used a personal stylist or shopper. A few weeks later my husband said why didn't I take my own advice! I have also been reflecting on my career and where my next step will take me - I wanted to feel like a confident leader.
I had been wanting to work with Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy for a while, and the birth of my first child seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.
I’ve always had the classic problem of a wardrobe full of clothes but nothing to wear and having a baby made me realise I needed to dramatically pare down the volume of clothes and focus more on higher quality pieces that would work hard for me.
I was prompted to contact Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy because I was fed up with my wardrobe, I was overbuying and was not making good, clear decisions. I had too many clothes and hated getting dressed.
I got in touch with Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy as I had recently received a promotion at work and wanted advice on selecting a wardrobe that suited both my new role and figure. I have always had trouble choosing clothes that flattered my figure and were appropriate for my age and seniority at work.
I contacted LESC as I felt the need to update professionally. It became apparent that despite being in good shape, as an older women I was being judged at some level to be dated, even past it. It became important to me to look more current, so I could feel confident professionally.
I wasn't happy with what I saw in the mirror every day. Being at home with the children it is easy to completely let yourself go! I think it was a need of a kind of therapy for my self esteem!! I needed someone to help me come out of myself.
I felt I needed some inspiration to make the best of my casual everyday wardrobe as I am a "fashion schizophrenic" and needed to hone my look so I could get out the door without worrying about what I was wearing.
I was starting a new job which required a more fashionable look. I had a lot of old clothes that didn’t fit nicely together and having had two children, my body had also changed.
I contacted Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy because I knew that I needed to revamp my professional wardrobe, and rather than spend wasted afternoons searching in shops and picking up pieces I really did not need, I decided to seek professional help. I opted for sessions with a senior stylist.
When I contacted Lizzie I was looking for a review of my wardrobe and a reduction. My wardrobe was bursting at the seams, yet I never felt I had anything to wear. I had already made two attempts at clearing out it myself in the last 2 years and failed, so I knew I needed some professional help.
As a mother of three young children, it has been more than 5 years since I bought clothes properly, and I have really struggled to find a style which suits me, my new shape, and is practical to wear to a range of different events.
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 decided to contact Lizzie Edwards and work with one of Lizzie's Senior Stylists as I was feeling frustrated that I never had enough clothes to wear at work, and I was finding it difficult to find styles that suited my figure and lifestyle.
I was up for a large promotion at work and feedback leading into this told me I should more purposefully consider my wardrobe and my 'brand' if I wanted to make the next step. This was a great prod for me to reach out to Lizzie.
After retirement from a business career and subsequently moving to a subtropical climate, I found it increasingly difficult to find a new, more relaxed style while staying true to myself. I wanted to go from conservative black to a relaxed, yet elegant smart casual style.
I've always found it really challenging to dress 'business casual'. I feel it's harder for women, especially at an executive level where you have to enter the boardroom, to look credible, yet be approachable to your team. Add in an international factor and the challenge of what to wear becomes daunting.
I was prompted to contact Lizzie Edwards Style Consultancy by a friend of mine who had great success with one of the senior stylists. I had no time to update my wardrobe, and was keen to find new brands that would work for me.
I really needed a change in my wardrobe; I had far too many clothes. They were overwhelming me and I desperately needed to clear out and get advice on every day wear to suit my change of lifestyle after the birth of my second child.
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!
