I have a habit of buying clothes that I like but with absolutely no thought as to whether they will actually go with anything that I already have! As a result my wardrobe was a mis matched selection of items that I struggled to wear in a co-ordinated way. Melissa was able to re-style my wardrobe and using accessories draw together a number of outfits using the clothes that I already had. She also gave me some simple tips to follow which I could use for almost every outfit in order to accentuate my better features whilst drawing attention away from those that I am not so keen on. She breathed new life into clothes that I loved but didn't ever wear and enabled me to wear a much bigger variety of clothes with confidence. And I absolutely love the photos on my wardrobe door - it makes things so easy!
DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, TAKE THEIRS...
I would wholeheartedly recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a new stylist. I recently had baby number 3 and wanted some new clothes and styles to make me feel good about myself again. Melissa listened to everything I told her about my lifestyle and finances and helped me figure out my own personal style. I had an amazing day shopping with her, she taught me a lot and her style tips made such a difference to how clothes looked on me. You have instilled a renewed confidence in myself and I'm so thankful I found you! The biggest thing you have done for me is giving me the confidence to hold my head up high on the school run and on the rare occasion I get to go out! I feel great about myself and the way I look - thank you.
Packing for a holiday has always been a problem for me, and almost without exception I would take too many of the wrong things. Finding Melissa has finally released me from my holiday nightmare and sorted me and my holiday wardrobe out. I recently travelled with a group of ladies (no pressure to look your best then!) who could not believe the contents of my (half empty may I add) suitcase. Not only was I able to mix 'n' match all of the outfits but I had the most perfectly appropriate outfits for each and every event we attended. I felt and looked confident at all times. I graciously passed on many of Melissa's tips to others but nothing can compare to a 1:1 with such a style expert.
Never did I think trying on clothes for 8 hours would be so much fun! After a few questions at the start of the (first!) day we mixed and matched my own clothes with some of her samples to create entirely new outfits. Melissa pushed me out of my comfort zone in the nicest possible way and I now feel more stylish, smarter and ready to take on the world. And even better, I have space in my wardrobe and a shopping list of the key pieces I need to compliment what I already have!
I love a wedding but have no confidence when it comes to buying an outfit. When I had my niece's wedding Melissa came to my rescue. She asked me a number of questions and then I arranged to go shopping with her (which I was dreading!). I needn't have worried, she was so natural and easy to talk to it was like shopping with my own daughter! I tried on a few dresses; colours and styles I would not even have considered and came away with a dress and coat which I felt great in, and in a size smaller than I thought I was! Before too long she had found a bag, shoes, hat and jewellery to complete the outfit. I have to say that when she asked me about shoes I was hesitant as I have short wide feet. She had two pairs for me to try on, quite high for me, but I can honestly say that they are the most comfortable high heels I have ever worn, I can even dance in them! Melissa has helped me with another Christening since and she managed to incorporate the coat which helped to keep the cost down and ensure I get the wear out of it. Believe me, if you want to look good and feel great and not spend hours shopping and worrying, I would thoroughly recommend Melissa to give you a hand. Good Luck and Enjoy.

I just wanted to say thank you for the impeccable service you provided to both myself and my daughter. My wardrobe is bursting with new ideas, new colours and pieces that i'm so excited about, i'm trying to arrange dates and evenings out just so I can show them off!
I also really appreciated the way in which you handled Sophia, she's very conscious of her weight and the way she looks and this morning she practically jumped out of bed and couldn't wait to go and meet with her friends. My husband and I found it all very emotional to be honest. I don't think you realise the impact you've had on our family and as you say, it's very little to do with the clothes but the confidence that derives from the outfit. When are you free to come and work your magic on daughter number 2 and I'd also like to treat my daughter-in-law to some gift vouchers please.
