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.

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.

Bridget D, 39, MD, Marketing & Events Co

It had been so long since I shopped that replenishing my wardrobe felt like a chore rather than a joy. I didn’t know where to start and was afraid of making expensive mistakes. I also decided that I wanted a treat and working with Lizzie sounded fun!

Kathryn, 40, Marketing Consultant

I needed a professional wardrobe that would allow me to feel smart and confident with my corporate clients, to bring a bit of creative expression when dealing with my agency and tech clients, and I wanted a casual "uniform" that took the stress out of choosing outfits for different occasions. Quite a big ask!

Kim, 44, Management Consultant

I had moved from a corporate office environment to a working from home arrangement, with regular outside meetings.  I needed to transition to a smart casual look, so I contacted LESC and booked in with one of Lizzie's senior stylists.

Sophia G, 42, Executive Coach

I was not getting the best use out of my wardrobe and felt I would benefit from some help in making the best out of the clothes I already had. I needed a wardrobe that could easily move from smart casual, to smart, to potentially evening out.

Amelia H, 49, Psychotherapist

I had a growing dissatisfaction with my wardrobe and how I looked, was fed up with the constant stress of not knowing what to wear, and frustrated with not knowing what to buy to correct the situation! 

Leanne S, 40, Entrepreneur

The specific issue for me was finding a smart but more business-casual look to wear to meetings and events. In my previous life I worked in a very corporate environment, and hadn’t really moved out of thinking that’s the look I needed to wear. I wanted help to find a style that reflected my business and me, but retained the right level of appropriateness for each occasion. 

Rosanne D, 45, Private Equity

I wanted to find a new way of dressing – giving up my old banker suits and finding a look that was more contemporary but still fitting for a 45 year old in finance. 

Rachel M, 47, Healthcare Researcher

I was tired of shopping for clothes which on second thoughts never seemed to quite work and I'd end up passing them on or giving them away. What I wore and the image I needed to project through work seemed to be getting further apart.

Linda P, 42, Exec & Non-Exec Director 

I had recently been promoted to Board level positions in a couple of companies and needed a new look that was smarter and more consistent with that level of seniority, but which still afforded me credibility as a scientist.

Jas H, 47, Company Director

After years of wanting some help with refreshing my work and casual clothes, as well as help with sorting through what I had in my wardrobe, my husband bought 2 days with Lizzie as a birthday present.

Clare M, 47, Senior Executive

I contacted Lizzie mainly due to my lack of time as I have two teenage kids, and I work very long hours. Over the years, my confidence has eroded  and I suffer from the fear of looking middle-aged or 'mutton dressed as lamb'...

Claire F, 41, H&S Director

Having spent many mornings staring at the contents of my overflowing wardrobe with an ever increasing sense of despair, I decided it was time to take action. After having 2 children I had lost my sense of style, my interest in clothes, and had fallen in to a rut of convenience clothes shopping via the Internet.

Becky S, 41, Partner

I was frustrated that I had lots of clothes, but very few that I wore regularly. I bought things, kept most of them for 'best' and never wore them, yet restricted myself to jeans and T shirts. I also felt that my dress sense no longer matched my age.
