You may remember my earlier post “Phase One: Wardrobe Assessment and Style File” about my client Dee, and our style journey. I’d now like to take you through the next phase.
After I met Dee and overhauled her wardrobe I wrote her a ‘Style File’ this would become her bible. Not only did it include an analysis of her body shape and colour type (i.e Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring) and a breakdown of the corresponding style of clothes and colours best for her. It also included some celebrity style inspiration, an analysis of her face shape to guide glasses purchases, tips and tricks for putting outfits together and a shopping list of all the clothes Dee needed to work with her existing wardrobe to create a multitude of outfits.
We arranged a shopping day date and met a few weeks later. Prior to the shopping trip I found all the items we needed online to allow our shopping trip to run smoothly and because we had a lot to get in 5 hours! We started with a coffee, so I could go through her Style File and make sure she was happy with it, we then hit the shops.
Our shopping trip ran smoothly, we found pretty much all the items Dee needed and had so much fun in the process. By the end of the day we had begun to feel like Pretty Woman hitting Rodeo Drive with all the bags!!
I met up with Dee at her house the following week and helped her make lots and lots of outfits out of both her new and old clothes, I photographed all the outfits so Dee would have a record to enable her to re create the outfits again. We spent hours doing this, and could have made many more combinations, luckily Dee was well equipped with all the tips and tricks I had included in her Style File.
Dee isn’t on her own now, I will be there for her to answer any questions she needs, whether that be some reassurance over an outfit she has put together, or whether she needs help choosing something new. Just the other day I helped her with an outfit for the races!
The exciting thing is that Dee was so rapped with what I did for her wardrobe, she employed me to restyle the whole ground floor of her house. I look forward sharing that journey with you all very soon.
If any of this sounds like something you need, please don’t hesitate to send me a Facebook message and I can explain my packages.
