We are not just Personal Stylists!

We are not just Personal Stylists!

So what do we mean when we say we are not just Personal Stylists? Well, it was pretty apparent to us when we first ventured into Personal Styling that our services required so much more than a stylish eye. What we found with clients was that we generally would only get a call when things were stagnating, and they were keen to find a better version of themselves. The first obvious thing to do when you are at a crossroads in your life is to look at how you are presenting yourself. If you’re dressing for the office every day […]

How to become a Virtual Stylist

How to become a Virtual Stylist

So who doesn’t love online shopping for fashion? Sitting there in your lunch hour or in the evening with a glass of wine in your hand and some of the best (and worst!) fashion buys are made. If you love it as much as we do, have you ever considered that you can earn money from shopping for others online? At Style ME we love all reasons to shop and it was after a few years of styling our clients in stores that we realised we had more and more requests from clients that wanted our styling services but couldn’t […]

Want to be a Personal Stylist – Your first client is you!

Want to be a Personal Stylist - Your first client is you!

When I speak to delegates prior to their training the response as to why they want to become a personal stylist is nearly always the same: “I love clothes, fashion and shopping and my friends are always complimenting my style and asking me to take them shopping, so I’m thinking I might as well get paid for doing a job I love”. That’s all great, but I do warn them that during the training their own sense of style will probably be questioned and that, their first client is always going to be themselves. I know they don’t believe me […]

The Best Preparation For Tomorrow Is Doing Your Best Today!

  When my delegates come for the 1 week Intensive Training course, day 1 or rather the 1sthour where we get to know each other can seem pretty daunting. Whilst reading out the week’s agenda clients can get pretty overwhelmed, because there’s just so much on it! From personal shopping, to wardrobe styling to colour analysis to a real client practice, to the photo shoot and finally to the business planning. I can always sense their anxiety questioning firstly how will we fit it all in? Secondly will they be able to keep up? And thirdly, will they be any […]

What Trends can my Clients buy?

What Trends can my Clients buy?

As many of you know I started my career as a Personal Stylist in my early thirties and I honestly can say what took me so long to make the career move was my fear of trends! Not clothes and styling but trends and fashion. You see I was well aware of my own body shape’s flaws and assets and combined with a very petite frame there wasn’t many trends I could buy in to. I learnt this in my early 20’s and my motto soon became quality over quantity. This is how I justified all those designer pieces!! Don’t […]

What’s the theme in your client’s Wardrobe?

What’s the theme in your client’s Wardrobe?

What’s the first thing you do when you open the doors of your client’s wardrobe? You look for their theme i.e. what do they have a lot of. In fact you should ask yourself the same question. Even myself if I went to my wardrobe now I know I would see lots of colour; my most flattering colours of course but block colouring is what I do best. What you won’t see is any print. Why not? I honestly don’t know; print is something I just don’t gravitate to. We Personal Stylists are there to point out to our clients […]
