Planet-Conscious Personal Styling

Welcome

I provide a sustainable, friendly and personalised styling service, helping people with their confidence by dressing for their body shape and colouring. I am a qualified Style Coach™ and a member of the International Association of Style Coaches.

  • Too many clothes and nothing to wear?
  • Struggling to feel joy through your clothes?
  • Want to look a certain way but not sure where to start?
  • Lost your sense of identity and want to find your style personality?
  • Fallen out of love with fast fashion but still want to feel stylish?

If any of these questions are ringing true, let me help you.

When we know how to dress, showcasing our true personality, our spending is more focused. We don’t waste our money.  Each item bought needs to make us feel good… if it doesn’t, then it doesn’t deserve a place in our wardrobe!!

A change in our clothing isn’t going to fix the world but it’s an excellent place to start!

 

My Services

Virtual and In-Person in Oxfordshire

Colour analysis | £45

Colour is a magical thing! It can lift us, empower us and spread joy. Find colours that compliment and showcase your unique colouring. Process: We’ll have an initial telephone or video chat to discuss you and then I will send you an online questionnaire to complete. You will also need to send me some head and shoulders photos for me to analyse but I’ll go through how to get the best shot! Once I have all this information, I’ll create a palette of beautiful colours to compliment your unique colouring! We’ll have a follow up call to go through them and I’ll provide you with a pdf palette to which you can continue to refer back.

Body-Shape analysis | £50

Find out about your unique body shape. You’ll learn which cuts and shapes suit you best and how to use your clothing to showcase your body. We’ll look at your horizontal shape and also your vertical proportions – do you have a short torso with long legs or short legs and a long torso or are you balanced? We’ll go through styling tips and tricks to get the best out of your figure. You’ll gain the knowledge and confidence to dress your body in the way you want.

Wardrobe edit

If you have already had the body-shape analysis, let’s dive into your wardrobe and see what’s showing you at your best, what we can tweak and what just needs to go! We can ‘shop your wardrobe’ and identify any gaps for you to take shopping! We will go through and photograph each to create a ‘Lookbook’ record. We will get creative and ‘shop your wardrobe’ creating outfits and capsules for all occasions.

This is a service to add onto a body-shape analysis at a later date as this is essential knowledge for editing your wardrobe.

£40 ph for a minimum of 2 hours + £20 for every additional ½ hour. In-person visits available within 20 miles of Oxford

Charity shop personal shop | £40/ph

In person in either Headington or Summertown, Oxford. Includes an initial coffee and a chat before we hit the shops. It isn’t guaranteed that you will find anything on your shopping list but we shall explore the treasures available and have some fun trying on different garments and accessories. Charity shop shopping needs a open mind and a grateful heart. We should recognise that we shop there by choice and not necessity so I like to make a donation at the same time… a great time to drop off the “just needs to go” pile from your wardrobe edit! Approx. 1.5-2 hours £40 per hour, no minimum

Sewing patterns for your wardrobe | £25 for up to 5 items

If you like to sew, I can recommend some patterns and fabric so you can create some gorgeous personal pieces – slow fashion at its best!

Full personal styling

Colour and body-shape analysis and the wardrobe edit from above, plus either the charity shop personal shopping or an online shop. Online personal shop – Armed with your shopping list, let me help you source your second-hand, vintage and sustainable treasures. I’ll also look at small and local businesses to support. We’ll look at outfit creation using your wardrobe – contact me for a quote
