“I work with everyday women of all ages, shapes and sizes with varying budgets and lifestyles, to help them look and feel the very best they can”

Wardrobe Overhaul

The Wardrobe Overhaul, which takes place in the comfort of your home, begins with a personal style consultation – talking about your lifestyle needs, likes and dislikes, your personality and your body shape.  We do this to define your personal style and so that both of us have clarity about the look you’re wanting to achieve and the image you’re wanting to portray.

Then, every little thing in the wardrobe (At least as much as we have time for depending on the size of your wardrobe) is tried on and evaluated in terms of whether it represents your unique personal style, whether it fits and flatters, whether it’s still modern and current and it’s condition.

I will identify what I think is missing from your wardrobe so that you have more outfit options and suggest what could be added so that dressing each day becomes less overwhelming and stressful and easier and more enjoyable.

During this session you may also discover how to wear pre-existing garments in a new way.  Bear in mind though, that this session is really designed to assess and overhaul your wardrobe. Often when we have too many things in our wardrobe it prevents us from putting outfits together because just opening the doors and looking inside is overwhelming. Until you’ve given your wardrobe a good review edit it’s difficult to see what you have to work with and know what’s missing. *If you don’t think you need a Wardrobe Overhaul but you want help putting outfits together using your clothes, consider a Pull-it-all-Together/Wardrobe Styling session (details below).

Just to reassure you, our time together is completely confidential and I will not judge or criticise but I will give my honest thoughts and advice. I’m here to help, support and encourage.  There might be times when you disagree with my ideas – that’s ok – after all it’s all about you and how you feel the most confident and comfortable – not about how I want you to look.  I might suggest items you could add to your wardrobe, but I certainly won’t pressure you to go out and buy new clothes.  That’s entirely up to you, when you’re ready and when your budget allows.  I also won’t pull things out of your wardrobe and throw them out – I might suggest something doesn’t suit you or the image you want to portray, but it will be up to you to decide whether you want to discard it.  I’m gentle, yet assertive with my advice.  It’s meant to be a cleansing and renewing process, but it’s also supposed to be enjoyable and fun.

NB: Because everyone has a different size wardrobe it’s impossible to anticipate how long it will take to work through everything.  We aim to get through all the clothes in 3 hours, however if you have a large wardrobe it may take longer.  If we run out of time, where possible, I will give you the option to extend the time, to get it all finished.  I do however, intend to teach you as much as I can in the time we have, so that if we do run out of time,  you’ll be able to finish the edit of your wardrobe on your own. 

Personal Shopping

Prior to our shopping session together I’ll have you fill out a questionnaire so that I can gain some insight into what you would like to achieve during your shopping trip, along with an idea of your style, budget, likes and dislikes, body shape and lifestyle.  On the day we’ll meet at an agreed venue and have a quick chat before we hit the shops.

While a shopping session with me is certainly about purchasing new items it is also designed to be educational. My aim is to give you the knowledge and confidence to be able to shop alone and shop smart in the future, making informed purchases and stop buying things that are only going to sit at the back of the wardrobe unworn.  I’ll teach you a series of questions to ask before you make a purchase (to make sure you only buy what’s right for you) and show you what styles flatter and complement your particular body shape. Even more importantly, I’ll teach you to be able to recognise when something does and doesn’t fit you properly and explain to you when something can and can’t be altered, so that it looks like it’s been made for you.

I don’t receive commission from any stores so there is no pressure to make any purchases (or try anything on).

* A Personal Shopping Trip is best completed after a Wardrobe Overhaul, but certainly not essential. It helps if I understand first-hand what clothes you have and what gaps you have in your wardrobe, however I often work with clients who come from Interstate or Overseas to shop with me, whose wardrobes I never see.  That’s absolutely fine.  (Some send me photos before we meet)

** In terms of budget it really comes down to how much you want to spend.  I have shopped with people who have spent $100 and others who have spent well into the thousands.  Some of my clients buy a couple of things during the time we shop together and may sleep on other purchases.  If they decide they love it, they may go back and buy it or purchase it online.  What you buy and how you shop is up to you.

Price: $140 per hour (Min. 2 hours)      Book or enquire here

* All shopping trips are done in the Melbourne CBD  (The department stores, Melbourne Central, The Emporium, boutiques and laneways – depending on your requirements and budget)

** I now offer Personal Shopping in the CBD til 7pm Monday – Thursday.

Wardrobe Styling   (Pull It All Together/Outfit Planning)

You’ve completed a Wardrobe Overhaul and bought new clothes, now it’s time to pull it all together to ensure you’re getting the best out of all the pieces in your wardrobe.  I visit your home and put outfits together, working with what you have in your wardrobe, photograph each look and send the images to you afterwards so you can keep them for inspiration.  This is where you’ll discover new ways to wear what you have in your wardrobe.  (This is ideal if you’re someone who doesn’t experiment with new looks and tends to wear their clothes the same way, every time.)

Includes

  • A one-on-one review and pull-it-all-together consultation in your home
  • Travel to and from your home (*conditions apply)
  • Photos of the outfits we put together so you have some ideas for when you need to come up with something to wear
  • A recommended shopping list of things that could be added to your wardrobe to complement what you already own and to fill identified gaps.
  • Links to suggested pieces that I think may work for you.  (These will be to some of my favourites  (ie favourite tees, knits, jeans, leather jackets, etc) not items I need to research.  You can either order them online or go into a store and try them on.

Price: $280 for 2 hours     $420 for 3 hours    Book or enquire here 

*This session can also just be used for Outfit Planning.  You may not feel that you need a Wardrobe Overhaul or that you need to go shopping, but you want to come up with new ways to wear the clothes you have in your wardrobe – that’s fine.
