Personal Shopping

Shopping Days can be conducted either in person or remotely – so wherever you may live, we can still work together. Following a detailed telephone consultation or the completion of a Style Form, we can either meet in person or I can create outfits for you, giving you access to them via Pinterest. And don’t worry, you don’t need to have a huge budget. I love mixing brands from Topshop to New Look, GAP, H&M, Whistles, Reiss, John Lewis and Selfridges. My speciality is making your money work really hard for you.

If we are working remotely, I will always provide plenty of choice and I will help you to source the pieces. I promise to stay with you until you are happy!

If we are able to meet, that’s great.  Many ladies find the shops busy and overwhelming. Disappointment and disillusionment can lead them to buying something for the children instead – or a gift for a friend – before heading home, vowing never to return!

My knowledge of brands, trends and your personal requirements will ensure that our time together is an organised and rewarding experience. We can shop for outfits (eg five smart/casual outfits for the school run), for looks (evening/work/weekend), for trend pieces for the season, or for a capsule wardrobe.

In order to maximise our time available, I can start shopping for you in advance, so that by the time that you arrive in our chosen store(s), there will be several outfits for you to start trying on. Alternatively, we can shop together from the start.

By the end of our session we will have filled those gaps in your wardrobe – whether it be basics, print, colour texture, shoes or accessories – leaving you with hardworking versatile pieces which work with what you already own. Whether you have a budget of £300 or £3000, we will find the perfect pieces for you.

The cost of a half day personal shopping session (9.15am to 12.30pm or equivalent) is £245 and a full day personal shopping session (9.15am to 2.45pm or equivalent) is £350.

Styling at home…

If you are not sure how to best to maximise the potential of your new clothes, I will happily visit you at home and style you in your new items of clothing, putting them with both existing pieces and with other new pieces. We can take photographs as a reference point and compile a style file for the season so that each morning, you know which outfit you are going to wear before even opening your wardrobe.

Style Masterclass

This is a two hour session in the stores during which I will teach you about the shapes, styles  and brands that work for you. With the emphasis being on equipping you with the tools to make the right choices for the future, I will advise you on how to build outfits, choose accessories and how to find your own sense of style. I will help to guide you towards key pieces that will lift your Wardrobe and start you on your way towards a new you. The cost of a Style Masterclass is £175.

Going that extra mile…Solo Shopping

For those of you who do not have the time to shop, or who do not enjoy the experience, I will go that extra mile and shop for you.

Working from a shopping list that we can create together, I will undertake a structured and organised shopping trip. By shopping on your behalf I can save you both time and money by ensuring that there are no hasty impulse buys.  Further, you will be incorporating only those clothes and accessories into your Wardrobe which have a rightful place there. I will shop for you and bring the clothes to your chosen location, returning what is not suitable. The cost of my Solo Shopping service is charged at a daily rate of £350.

Special Events

Special events can, and should, be so exciting but the prospect of finding an outfit to wear can be stressful. A stylist can take the stress out of shopping for your outfit.

In preparation for our session I will;

  • take a detailed brief, first by way of a Style Form and then with  a telephone consultation, so that I am clear about the event that you are attending, any looks that you might have in mind and any preferences that you may have;
  • follow up with research so that our time together is focused.

On the day I will select several outfits, which will be ready for you on arrival at our chosen store.  I will do all of the hard work for you, making our time together as stress free for you as possible.

Whether it is a work function, a wedding, a party, a special birthday or anniversary coming up, I can provide suggestions and inspire you to achieve the look that you want.

It may be that you have a series of events coming up, perhaps a combination of family gatherings and work functions but have “nothing to wear”.  If so, I can advise you on a versatile capsule wardrobe that you can style in many different ways so that you feel as though you are wearing a completely new outfit for every event. You really will be the belle of the ball.

All of the above can be done remotely so again, if we don’t happen to live close by, that’s not a problem.

The cost of this service is charged at a daily rate of £350 for a full day of styling, and at £245 for half a day of styling.
