How will I benefit from a personal stylist?


• You are getting a tailored shopping experience that is confidence boosting and fun
• Professional styling advice that you will be able to use in the future
• It is time saving and not stressful at all, there's no running around for you in busy shops and you will get clothes that you can easily mix and match and build outfits with
• Save money, yes really! By using my services you won't be buying those impulse buys that you somewhat like. I will make sure that you are leaving the styling session with outfits that you will be able to wear over and over again!




Do you make any commission from what I buy?


No, I am an independent stylist and I do not make any commission on the items you are choosing, I am completely there to recommend the best possible pieces for you. There is never an obligation to buy and there is no minimum spend.




How do I know if I need a full day or half day appointment?


If you haven't updated your wardrobe in a long time I would recommend going for a full day. A full day might sound long but it does go quick and it is an enjoyable experience for you because I am the one who does the hard work!
If you need two sets of separate capsule wardrobes for example a work wardrobe and a casual wardrobe I would recommend going for a full day as well.

If you are after one seasonal capsule wardrobe I would recommend going for the half day.




How often will I need your services?


I would recommend to use my services twice per year, one for spring/summer and one for autumn/winter. If you do have an event throughout the year you can always book the mini styling session if you are after just the one outfit.




What is the average budget for personal shopping?


The budget is completely up to you! If you let me know how much you want to spend I will work around that. I can work with high street or high end brands depending on what type of quality you are after.




What if I don't like any of your selections?


Disliking a look is a part of the journey, however I will always give you plenty of options. I have had styling sessions where I have shown a client an outfit and they have said "I'm not wearing that" but when they try it on they quickly change their mind because they can see why I have picked it.
With six years of experience as a stylist I have learnt to understand many different styles and how to fully tailor a style completely to your personality, body shape and complexion. No appointment is the same and I can guarantee that I will be able to help you create your own unique style.




Can I bring someone to my styling session?


Yes you can! But I would recommend to come on your own for the best possible experience. A lot of times when you bring friends or family it can prolong the styling session.




How often do I need a Wardrobe Detox?


I would recommend starting with a wardrobe detox when you start your style journey with me. If you do decide to keep using my styling services you won't accumulate unnecessary clothes in your wardrobe as I will only recommend clothes that fits and works for your current lifestyle. You probably only need to use a wardrobe detox once, unless you drastically change your lifestyle or sizes.




What areas do you cover?


I am mainly operating in Newcastle and Gateshead and surrounding areas in the North East. I do travel further but I charge a travel fee, please get in touch for more information.




Why should I choose you as my stylist when majority of shops already have a similar service?


The difference between using a styling service in store versus an independent stylist is because when you are shopping from one specific store they will most likely be on commission or in need of reaching a daily sales target. As I am an independet stylist I can take you to any shop on the high street and there is no pressure to buy as I am not commissioned by that specific brand or retailer.
