Personal Styling

Jessica H, 36, Head of Legal

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. 

Rachel F, 35, Investment Funds Lawyer

 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.

Sarah B, 47, Recruitment Business Owner

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.

Michelle S, 42, Head of Communications

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. 

Alice K, 52, Banker

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.

Aude A, 38, Yoga Teacher

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.

Clare H, 45, On a career break

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.

Natalie E, 39, Vice President Business Development

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.

Anthony J, 48, Company Director

I am time constrained and my wife referred me to Lizzie, as I hate shopping but I was fed up not having anything to wear.  Practically everything in my wardrobe needed replacing, but I don't have the time or patience to shop.

Kate J, 47, Senior Programme Manager

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.

Sarah W, 35, Homemaker

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. 

Penny G, 41, Operations Manager

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!

Ashley M, 32, Private Equity

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.

Julie S, 42, Global Business Unit President

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. 

Isa M, 62, Retired Executive

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.

Joy W, 47, CIO

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.

Amanda T, 45, Fitness Coach

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.

Shiona M, 43, Strategy Director

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!

Karine H, 46, Partner in a law firm

I do not have time to shop - ever.  It's always rushed, last minute and disorganised. I never know what to buy so I fancied having someone to help me buy clothes who would be impartial. I had also recently moved firms and I wanted some new items.

Mary P, 34, Freelance Consultant

Because of my change in body shape after the birth of my two children, I had lost all confidence in my own judgement regarding what I could pull off or not. I needed a new style that would suit my age and clothes that would be versatile enough to be appropriate for work meetings, school run, shopping, and playing with the kids at home.
