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 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 had a closet full of clothes, yet was always wearing the same tired black outfit. I wanted to have the clothes in my closet translated into outfits, and to stop buying things that were not usable or didn't fit my style.
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.
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!
My work wardrobe was really dull and my casual wardrobe was non-existent, so I wanted to re-invent my office wardrobe, and just didn't know where to start with my casual wardrobe. After discussing my options I decided to book with Henry, a senior stylist.
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!
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.
I've always found shopping stressful and getting dressed to go to work a challenge. A promotion meant I really had to do something about my look, smarten up and increase my confidence for business meetings and leading change in the organisation.
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.
