I was talking with a friend, and suggested maybe she should use a personal stylist or shopper.
A few weeks later my husband asked me why didn't I take my own advice! 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.
The wardrobe and style review session was eye opening, it made me look at my own clothes with a critical eye and understand why I liked or didn't like wearing certain items. I quickly realised the number of clothes I liked wearing was limited, which helped me get rid of a lot of clothes.
Prior to the shopping session I was a little bit apprehensive, but the session was really great. It was a treat to have so many clothes ready and waiting for me to try. I liked going to new shops and trying on new brands that I hadn’t tried before.
I liked that Nicole had a gentle style of coaching, she was encouraging and listened to my feedback as I tried on each outfit and I came away with items in a wider range of colours than I would normally wear.
I have had so many great compliments on my clothes since the shopping trip. I enjoy getting dressed in the morning and wearing my new pieces, and I feel more confident. I am now looking at clothes with new eyes and looking forward to future shopping trips.
Thank you Nicole for a great experience!
I needed to build a wardrobe to have ready to go outfits for various appearances, and due to a lack of time my wardrobe was becoming a real challenge for me.
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 My work wear style hadn't changed in 10 years and my personal wardrobe was shabby, outdated and cheap.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.
