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 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.
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 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.
