NEED A PERSONAL STYLIST?

In Uncategorized on July 22, 2011 at 1:33 am

Nicolette’s Personal Styling – Services

Do you feel overwhelmed every time you go into your closet or the shops, and you don’t have a clue what looks good on you or how to make the most of what mother nature gave you?  Book a few hours or a day with me in return for a new outlook on life.  I will show you just how amazing you really are and how versatile your existing wardrobe actually is.

*

Initial Consultation – Free

Duration 1 hour

This involves an informal meeting over coffee (or even a glass of bubbly if you prefer) to discuss what you are looking to achieve.  It also gives you a chance to size me up and see if you would like to work with me before signing up :o)

*

Colour Consultation

Duration:  1.5 hours

This involves a meeting at your home or at a venue convenient for you.  By looking at your skin tone, hair and eye colour, I will show you which colours complement and enhance your natural features.  Shortly after our meeting you will be sent a colour report including useful tips on your colours, make-up and accessories along with colour swatches for you to take with you when you go shopping.

*

Style & Body Shape Consultation

Duration:  2 hours

In this consultation we will discuss your lifestyle and personality to establish your style.  We will look at your body shape to ensure you are wearing the correct clothes to make the most of your best features and tricks on disguising the bits you don’t like.  This session is guaranteed to leave you with invaluable tips and bags of confidence.

*

Colour, Style & Body Shape Consultation

Duration: 3.5 hours

This package includes both of the above consultations and is advised to be taken together to get better benefits.  This consultation will not only leave you with the knowledge of what colours enhance your features and what clothes enhance your shape but shopping aimlessly and wasting your money will become a thing of the past!

*

Wardrobe Consultation

Duration: 3 hours minimum

This service is offered as a stand-alone service but is most beneficial when combined with the colour, style and body shape consultation as the results from those are taken into consideration when going through your wardrobe.

I will visit your home, where we will go through all the items in your wardrobe systematically based on your needs.   We will sort your clothes into four piles – items to keep, items to be altered, items to go to charity and items to sell.  I will show you different ways to wear and combine existing clothes and how to revive items with a few simple tweaks.

For items that go into the charity pile, I will arrange for these to be taken to a local charity store.  For items to be sold, I can sell them for you on e-bay, giving you back 50% of the sale price.

The final step will involve looking at the gaps in your wardrobe and compiling a list of what you need in order to achieve a basic skeletal wardrobe, which you can then start to add to with your newfound knowledge.  This session is designed to give you a renewed confidence in yourself and your appearance.

Please note, the time taken to go through your wardrobe depends on how extensive it is.  However, I will give you a few preparatory steps before our consultation to eliminate any wasted time.

*

Personal Shopping

Duration: 2 hours minimum

As with the wardrobe analysis, this service is most beneficial when you have undergone the colour, style, body shape and wardrobe analysis, as we will know exactly what colours and styles to look out for and we’ll have a list of essential items to complete your skeletal wardrobe.  Depending on your budget and preference, we can visit high street stores or designer boutiques.  Whether you are looking for an outfit for a special occasion or for a new work wardrobe, I will show you how pleasurable shopping can be, once you know what you are looking for!

 *

Please note, each of the services above will include travel expenses and time taken after consultations to submit your report along with free follow up advice as and when you need it. 

Email me at nla_stylist@hotmail.com for prices.  First 10 customers will receive a 50% discount!

One of the reasons I absolutely love styling shoots as opposed to personal styling/consulting is the opportunity to explore, be creative and make use of all the different strains of fashion that run through my veins and make me tick!

The Queen Of Pearls…And An Extra Special Discount!

In Uncategorized on July 11, 2011 at 8:29 pm

Carola Bun, the creator and mastermind behind Bun, a luxurious range of exquisite pearl jewelry, shares her simple and easy-to-incorporate tips on styling and being fabulous!

*

*

Step-By-Step Styling Secrets – by Bun

Save time:  Stress-free styling for every day.

Save money: Invest in timeless pieces, not disposable fashion.  Redesign your current wardrobe with the simple tips below.

Simple solutions:  Keep your look simple, you want people to see you for you, not what you’re wearing.

…and you may as well shine with elegance, class and confidence while you’re at it ;o)

*

Here’s the “How-to” in four simple steps:

  • Identify your best body part and accentuate.  E.g. use a belt for a waistline, stilettos for ankles, a low-cut blouse for a voluptuous bust, etc.   If you’ve got more than one, don’t show them all off at the same time!  Follow the “top or bottom” rule – if wearing something revealing on top, be sure to cover up your bottom half and vice versa.
  • Keep it simple – never wear more than three colors at a time, sticking with one or two is your best bet.  Monochromatic color streams always exude class and elegance and wearing too many colors at a time confuses the eye.  You want people to see you for you and not for what you’re wearing.
  • Keep a polished clean look – make-up should never be over-done, hair should always be well washed and styled with ease.
  • Now you’ve got a perfect “blank canvas” to add the perfect final touch – your pearl necklace!!!

So why pearls?

Lustrous Pearls instantly add glow and highlight your natural features & your inner beauty.  Investing in pearls, whether they are cultured or glass is a great decision.  They are timeless – you’ll wear them today, tomorrow and even 10 years from now – they’ll NEVER go out of style!

*

Personal image/branding yourself

The way you look, creates the way you feel, which creates the way others feel about you.  So if you’re looking amazing and shining with confidence…well lets leave the rest to you.

Did you know 55% of the way people view you is entirely by what you look like?  That leaves 45% to everything else.  Perfecting your image is of highest importance – you are your own “virtual business card”, so dress for success and go for gold!

“Jewelry should not just be worn, it should be “felt” by its wearer.  My ultimate goal is to highlight and accentuate a woman’s true beauty.” – Carola Bun

What a seriously fun shoot this was!  It was a 4am wake-up to get the first ferry across to Victoria which was like paying a little visit to the English countryside and brought back floods of happy memories and of everything I love about it.

Miss you London ♥
