PERSONAL STYLING

When you feel you have lost your mojo and your overflowing wardrobe has nothing to wear, I can come and help you rediscover that stylish you hidden under all those clothes.

When life interrupts and you spend your days fulfilling everyone else’s needs, your identity can get lost along the way.  A personal wardrobe audit and styling session with me delves deeper than just your wardrobe because this is a path to finding your own personal style.

Your personal style is a way to convey what and how you feel about your identity, your culture and the world around you.

Your personal style fits your lifestyle, feels & looks good. Knowing your personal style means getting dressed in the morning is quick and without fuss.

One of the most important results you can bring to the world…is the you that you really want to be.” Robert Fritz

Personal Styling and Wardrobe Audit – 4 hour package is $350

I believe that we innately know our style and we choose clothes that reflect that, but not always. Sometimes trends and friends and stores convince us to buy and wear things that are not quite right.

Before the audit we meet briefly to discuss your expectations and to have a quick look at your wardrobe.  This is a great time to meet each other so you get a sense of who I am and vice versa.  I can prepare for what is required and do some research before the styling session and audit with you.

When I do a wardrobe audit with you, we go through your whole closet and we uncover those items that are just right for you that capture your inner personal style. We make sure they fit and look amazing on you. I help you see how they can coordinate to create new outfits you hadn’t thought of before. I show you how you can shop your wardrobe daily, get dressed quickly and without fuss.

I help you sift out the odd ones and work out where they can best be utilised by others: your sister, your friend, Suited to Success charity (for corporate wear) or your favourite charity.  I also sell your good quality items on your behalf and you receive 40% of the sale price.

When we are finished you will:

  • Know your personal style.
  • Know what colours and shapes suit you best.
  • Know how to style every item to extend its use.
  • Have a wardrobe filled with items you love,
  • Have a wardrobe filled with items that fit you and are a reflection of your style.
  • Have a wardrobe you can visually see what you have to wear.
  • Know what clothes you may need to shop for to fill any gaps.
  • 20 new hangers to streamline your closet
  • 5 items mended
  • Your excess items are removed on that day.

I send you a follow-up email giving you an overview of the session including links to stores and styles that will enhance your personal style.

Personal Styling for a Special Event – minimum 2 hours at $100/hour

So the invitation has arrived and you are really looking forward to this celebration, catching up with old friends, having a dance maybe, eating some great food…then that sinking feeling in your stomach hits…what are you going to wear?

Don’t spoil the excitement about this event by worrying about what to wear on your own. Firstly I can work with your current wardrobe to see if you have all the elements to create the perfect outfit. Most people are surprised at what can be created with the items they already have. New ways of looking at your clothes and accessories can create a look that is stylish, appropriate and looks amazing on you.

In the event we cannot find that perfect look for you by shopping your wardrobe, we need to go shopping, smart shopping.

Keeping in mind what you already own, we work out what we are looking for, do some online research and then meet at our selected stores to try and buy.

When we are finished you will have a complete outfit you feel and look amazing in and that excitement about the event will return.


Personal Styling to build a Sustainable Wardrobe – Minimum 2 hours at $100/hour

You have an overflowing wardrobe, with nothing to wear but you don’t want to add to landfill by buying more stuff. You want advice on how to go about using the items you have, how to mend garments, how to refashion or up-cycle so your wardrobe becomes ‘new’ again.

Together we can shop your wardrobe, uncover your personal style and uncover the possibilities hidden in your wardrobe. We can discuss other ways to change your wardrobe into the one you enjoy facing daily. This may mean refashioning, swapping, selling or repurposing your items. I can also advise you on where you can buy sustainable garments that are ethically produced. Or give you advice on where to go for some potentially awesome vintage or preloved items for sale.

When we have finished you will:

  • Know your personal style.
  • Know what colours and shapes suit you best.
  • Know how to style every item to extend its use.
  • Know what clothes you may need to shop for to fill any gaps.
  • See the potential in the items in your wardrobe.
  • Have some basic knowledge of how to mend your items.
  • Know how to go about reinventing your items.

I can remove any items you no longer require and either donate to a charity or sell on your behalf with you receiving 40% of the sale price.

I send you a follow-up email giving you an overview of the session including links to sustainable fashion sources, stores and styles that will enhance your personal style.


Packing for Travel – Minimum 2 hours at $100/hour

You are excited about your trip, but not looking forward to the packing.  I can help you put together an ideal wardrobe for your trip away.  Together we discuss the destinations climate and your itinerary, the activities you will be getting up to, any special events to plan for and how to travel light.  Together we create your own capsule wardrobe for your adventures.

When we have finished you will:

  • Have a travel wardrobe to suit your destination & activities
  • Have clothes that coordinate
  • A wardrobe that fits into your suitcase without it bulging.
  • Lose that anxiety about packing and get excited about the trip.
  • Feel confident getting dressed every day on your adventure.

I send you a follow-up email giving you an overview of the session so you have an easy reference about the planning we did together.


Group Styling Workshop

$500 per workshop Maximum 10 people Duration: 1.5-2 hours

Sometimes you want to get a group of your friends together to workshop the same ideas, support each other’s journey in developing your personal style and have some fun whilst learning about fashion, style, quick daily dressing and becoming your best self.

Each workshop is prepared to meet the group’s specific expectation. Some themes a group might choose are:

  • How to Grow a Green Closet – a Workshop to get you started on a sustainable and ethical closet.
  • How to Step Up the Style Factor at Work – a workshop to get you focussing on how your work demands dictate what you should wear and how to add your personal style to meet those demands and more.
  • I Lived the Corporate Life but then I had a Baby – how to get your groove back wearing relaxed & chic clothing.
  • What is a Capsule Wardrobe and Do I Really Need One? – This is for the women who want to simplify their life by having less options in their wardrobe without restricting their style.

Prior to the workshop a meeting with the group’s organiser(s) is ideal to discuss the groups ideas and expectations, so the workshop can be tailored to their needs. We can also finalise the venue – either at someone’s home, office or at an offsite location. I can arrange an offsite venue & catering if you prefer this option.

My workshops are interactive so each individual creates their own responses on a specifically prepared worksheet to ascertain their personal needs and uncover their personal style, befitting their own life demands. Wardrobe essentials, then colours and accessories are defined for each attendee. Then using a rack of essential clothing items, I demonstrate how a small collection of items can create a unique personal look in multiple outfits. Each attendee will leave with a worksheet defining their lifestyle demands, a clear idea on their best style to meet those demands and a simple way to create a wardrobe to get dressed daily without fuss.
