Discover the key to effortless style with Melissa Murrell
Personal Stylist & Personal Shopper styling real women with real lives.
Maximum Style. Minimum Effort
I want to lose weight. Should I wait before booking my session with you?
In short, no! How many months have you been promising yourself that you're going to lose a few pounds? The styling process is all about increasing your confidence and building your self-esteem using clothes. Immediately I will be able to show you how to drop a dress size just by selecting the right clothes for your shape. This new look will instantly make you feel better and in turn will kick start your motivation to lose a few pounds, if necessary - it might even show you that you don't need to lose weight to look good. Either way you'll feel better about yourself and maybe it’ll provide the kick-start you've needed to embark on a healthier life style.
How much money will I need to spend on clothes?
It's more about making the most of what you've already got than encouraging you to spend money. That said, my clients are often missing things like a classic white long sleeve top or a long necklace but such items can be as a little as £5-8! And remember, if I'm shopping for you I don't make any money on the clothes I purchase and any discount that I receive I pass directly on to you. I've worked with clients that literally have nothing to spend through to the big spenders where money is no object - I can make any scenario work.
I’m having a wardrobe re-style, what do I need to do to prepare?
You could do absolutely nothing but I personally would encourage you to have a little bit of a tidy up. I’m not suggesting that you start throwing out clothes but just re-hanging clothes that have fallen down, putting shoes together etc. To be frank you don't want to pay my hourly rate for me to do basic tidying up but equally I’m happy to do that should you wish.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?
I don't have any issues with travelling any distance but I do like to work around my children, which generally means I need to travel from and back to my house (SN9 6JQ) between 8.30am and 4pm. With advance notice I can increase these hours to 6pm.
DO I HAVE TO STRIP OFF AND GET NAKED?
You will be getting changed and trying on lots of different outfits but
a): you can do this in a separate room if you'd like and
b): you'll always have your underwear on.
Do try and remember that I see women of all different ages, shapes and sizes everyday of the week! I'm no stick insect myself!
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
I charge £50 per hour plus travel costs from SN96JQ at £0.45p per mile. I use google maps to work out how many miles to charge.
WHEN AND HOW DO I PAY YOU?
I'll send you an invoice after our session together and you can pay by bank transfer.
I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS, CAN I CALL YOU?
Of course you can! Most days I'm out with clients so I can't answer my phone but please leave a message and I'll call you back as soon as I can.
