”Lisa was fantastic. She came over to my house, worked through my wardrobe with me, and gave me practical tips that I could use to improve the way I present myself every day. I frequently use her ideas when shopping, and my style is all the better for it.”
Zahid Mitha – Go Cardless
“I am not a shopping fan but found the day to be even enjoyable. Great advice, thank-you!”
Rob Wheatley, Investment Director
“I wasn’t sure what to expect (and was a little bit nervous) but Lisa is really approachable and fun to be with. I am now the proud owner of a number of things I would never have even thought about buying, including a fabulous maxi-dress. Lisa helped me to work out my ‘wardrobe gaps’, and to understand the best clothes for my body shape. She also has an extremely impressive knowledge of what’s in the shops!”
Georgina, East Sussex
“I needed Lisa’s help after I changed career, became a mother and lost two stone in the space of two years. I was having an identity crisis and didn’t feel confident or stylish – essential in my new career as a Garden Designer. Lisa took the time to really listen to what I needed, and had some great ideas of looks that would work practically in my job. Lisa looked at which colours suit me, my shape, my style, the scale of accessories that suit me and then edited my wardrobe to key pieces that will suit me. After she left not only did I have a little book of colours to take to the shops, I also I have more confidence, feel more attractive and above all feel more me. I wholeheartedly recommend her and only wish I had met her when I was 18!”
Rosie Nottage, Rosie Nottage Garden Design
“I thoroughly enjoyed my session with Lisa. My wardrobe is a lot lighter and I definitely feel I am able to easily choose what to wear everyday as a result of knowing that all my clothes in my wardrobe look great on me! Lisa herself made the experience feel very enjoyable with her laid back friendly stye, you really feel you are with a friend! I can’t wait for my shopping trip with Lisa!”
Shazia Mustafa, Co-Founder, Third Door
“I wanted to use more colour in my wardrobe, rather than my usual ‘safe’ colours and Lisa was able to give me the inspiration and the courage to go a little braver with my colour choices. She also enlightened me as to what shapes and fabrics would suit my body shape best. It’s so easy to get into a rut when it comes to clothes and outfits, it was great to get some fresh ideas from Lisa.”
Clare James, Head of Management Accounts
Following a surprise invitation to the Queen’s Royal Garden Party in July, I was sent into a slight state of panic as to what I was going to wear! However help was at hand as I asked Lisa Gillbe if she would help ‘dress’ me for this event. I’ve never really known what my ‘style’ is, or the kind of clothes that suit me best so I was very open (and quite excited) about how Lisa was going to help me.
Lisa gave me a full style consultation, colour session and wardrobe clear out. Having someone go through your entire wardrobe and offering suggestions as to whether you should or should not keep certain items can be quite intimidating, but that is not at all how it was – it was actually quite liberating to have a professional do a job that I’m sure many women struggle with. Lisa was very thorough, honest and non-judgmental in her assessment. She always gave a reason before discarding anything and checked with me that I was happy for her to do this. I can now actually see what’s in my wardrobe – hallelujah!!
Lisa and I then arranged to go on a shopping trip to find an outfit for me to wear to the Garden Party. This was amazing – everyone should do it whether or not they have a special event to attend! Lisa had booked a room in a department store and by the time I met her, she had got together a few outfits for me to try. I would say that all of the outfits were ones I would never have normally picked up if I had been out shopping on my own, but for me that was fantastic. It was also a great lesson for me as I started to look at what I was trying on in a different way – the colour, the style, whether or not it flattered my good bits and took the eye away from the not so good.
Once we had decided on the dress Lisa also helped me with accessories – belt, shoes, bag and even how I might like to wear my hair. I was thrilled with the whole outfit and felt confident and, most importantly, comfortable in it. I was ready to meet Her Majesty…..
