I had been feeling a little exasperated with everything to do with clothing. My wardrobe wasn't giving me what I needed, I didn't know where to shop and I didn't know what my style was. I had been considering trying an image consultant for a while, and finally I decided I needed to change
The referral to Lizzie came about as part of my employer’s formal annual review process. It was, perhaps, a slightly delicate subject, but the question arose as to whether I “looked like a potential partner” and the answer was not a unanimous 'Yes'.
I contacted Lizzie as I was starting a new job, and had an outdated wardrobe. I needed to walk into my new job with complete confidence that I was looking the part, because I knew it would help me feel the part.
